At last, "Game of Thrones," Season 7, is here with the Sunday premiere on HBO, a season that will be watched by most humans on the globe because, well, it is just the best damn show in the history of human entertainment.

Why is it the best? The characters, the amazing story arcs, the subtleties, the foreshadowing, battles, dragons, Khaleesi, all of it told on a scale never attempted before on the screen. "Game of Thrones" is too big for a Hollywood movie, and HBO has made history here on cable television.
And then there's The Wall: 700 feet of solid ice and magic spells that keep evil from the realms of men. Some of you know this already, but for those who don't, the stupendous wall of ice was born right here in Chicago, in the mind of author George R.R. Martin.
At lunch a couple years ago, Martin told me that when he was a student at Northwestern University in 1967, he experienced walls of ice firsthand, during the great snow and ice storm that hit Chicago in 1967.
"The coldest winter was in Chicago, let me tell you about cold," Martin said. "There was so much snow that winter, you couldn't see — all snow, all ice, and it was so very cold.
"It was like the trenches during World War I, but they were trenches of ice," Martin said. "I remember walking through the trenches and the tunnels of ice, the wind blowing so you couldn't even see. It's an experience that never left me."
So am I excited? Yes. And if you're a fan, you're excited too. I'm told my excitement for "GOT" is best described as a "nerdgasm," but at this point, having just finished a rewatch of all six previous seasons (60 episodes), and the books and every "GOT" theory page I could find online, I really don't care.
It's "Game of Thrones," dang it.

And there will be blood. They should probably retitle the season "There Will Be Blood." You can't have proper revenge without some. And even the anticipation of it leads to predictions on who lives and who dies. Oh, yes, I'll get to those.
We'll also see dragons, breasts and betrayals, political intrigue, a wise dwarf who drinks and knows things, barbarians in leather pants, amazingly strong female characters bossing around weak, tortured western males, the machinations of a goodly eunuch, the humiliation of royals, a plethora of dead peasants and yes, blood.
But first, may I offer one word of advice? Many viewers may be attending a "Game of Thrones" watch party on Sunday.
"I'm going to a watch party!" announced my friend Old School with a big grin. He's such a "GOT" fanatic that he hurriedly read all the books first so he wouldn't become too depressed should a favorite character lose his or her head. Then he watches each episode several times, looking for clues.
"You're not going to a watch party, are you?" asked Old School.
No. He knows me. I like company, but if there's one thing I can't stand while watching a new episode of "Game of Thrones," it's the talkers.
Talkers feel the need to tweet with their mouths about anything that pops into their empty heads. "Looks like Sansa will betray Jon!" or "Sir Davos is going to die, isn't he?" or "Isn't that Sherlock Holmes' brother Mycroft?" or "Will Peter Dinklage play another medieval dwarf?" or "So Cersei and Bronn were lovers in real life and now they hate each other on the set?"
And so they ruin the thing with their talk.
A man's got to have a code. And my code is this: I don't like talkers. Listening to talkers makes me thirsty.
And sometimes, listening to talkers, I get a strange hunger for roast chicken, the anger welling up, and I'm told my eyes look like a dog's eyes just before he bites.
All I really want to do is watch the darn show. So please, don't talk and ruin it.
Predictions:

There are two predictions that I make with absolute certainty. One is that I'll be tempted to drop "Game of Thrones" references throughout my columns for some time, things like "Flayed taxpayers" and so on.
Happily, my editors don't watch the show—so if there are any Cersei/Ivanka comparisons, or Little Finger/Mayor Rahm Emanuel parallels, it's their fault.
Another thing is for certain. The show runs on Sunday nights, and those who don't bother watching run around work the next day demanding that no one talk about it lest their fun be "spoiled."
What is the statute of limitations for talking about the show at work?
I say Monday morning. If you don't watch, it's your fault. Quit crying.
Another prediction. The days of Queen Cersei honoring herself with her smirk, and her wine, and her "I choose violence" and her hatred of deplorables are coming to an end. But who will end her?
Will it be her brother with benefits, Jamie? Will a dragon bite her head off?
Or will my favorite character, the true wonder woman of Westeros, Arya Stark, stick a needle in her eye?
There are certain truths no matter what the age. Evil is out there. The night is dark and full of terrors. And though it may feel like summer to some, many of us know that winter is here.
