DON’T MISS: “Game of Thrones” – The end is here. After eight tumultuous – and highly watchable – seasons packed with political intrigue, dragon fire, ice zombies, gore galore and one misplaced coffee cup, the twisted fantasy series concludes with an 80-minute series finale. And the question remains: Who will sit on the Iron Throne? Who really wants to? … And does the Iron Throne even still exist after last week’s fiery carnage in King’s Landing? We have no idea what will go down, but we desire happy endings for all of our favorites who are still breathing. (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO).
