It’s only Thursday, but all I can think about is how I wish Sunday would hurry up and arrive so I can watch the Game of Thrones season six finale. Then I’ll be sad that I have to wait almost another year to see more. It’s a vicious cycle. See pictures from the finale in today’s TV-Cap along with looking at Outlander’s Brianna and Roger, learning about Gotham’s new Poison Ivy, and more.
Winter Is Coming. Well, “The Winds of Winter” are coming in the Game of Thrones season six finale.

I thought we’d be sticking to King’s Landing, but what do I know? Get Alicia’s complete thoughts on the images and see more pics here at Nerdist. [Images: HBO]

I refuse to give away details about who they are in order not to spoil those who haven’t read the books. [Entertainment Weekly, Image: Starz]

Thankfully, Channing Tatum’s Free Association and A24 are bringing it to you in the form of a comedy series called Iron Fisting.
