The world of Game of Thrones is dense and full of terrors. But it's also full of Easter eggs! George R.R. Martin has hidden so many subtle clues in the A Song of Ice and Fire books that he is afraid some fans have already figured out the secret ending and, like the books, the HBO show is also peppered with plenty of Game of Thrones hidden features and Easter eggs that are inspired by Martin's books and other sources.

Did you notice that Gandalf's sword is in the Iron Throne? How about that Jon Snow's best buds at the Wall have the same names as Frodo's pals in The Lord of the Rings? There are also initials carved on a wall that hint at Jon Snow's real parents, several references to Monty Python, nods to H.P. Lovecraft and Dragonslayer, and many, many more, if you are willing to keep your eyes peeled.
