"The Iron Bank will have its due." – Braavosi saying

Game of Thrones viewers have heard of the Iron Bank; it's often mentioned in passing by the characters populating the Seven Kingdoms. Take the Season 7 episode entitled "The Spoils of War": in it, Cersei Lannister and the enigmatic Tycho Nestoris talked at great length about the Iron Bank of Braavos. If you're the kind of fan who has stuck with the television show but never cracked one of the books' spines, then you might have been a little lost. But that's to be expected. After all, who's watching Game of Thrones for all the financial drama?

Well, you might want to brush up on the banking knowledge from here on out. The Iron Bank and its secret history is more intriguing than you might assume. A lot of people think the Iron Bank is going to become very important in the final episodes of Game of Thrones. Debts are going to be collected, allegiances are going to change, and shady backdoor dealings are bound to happen. That's Game of Thrones for you. Come for the dragons, stay for the banking.

Beware: there are SPOILERS ahead for Game of Thrones.
