Best quote: “Director Joe Dante threw horror, science fiction, slapstick, satire, family drama, and holiday nostalgia into a blender and pushed the puree button.” —Alan Siegel

Need a refresher on House of the Dragon before the second season airs? Feast your eyes on our cheat sheet, filled with character names you have completely forgotten about and will never remember how to spell.

Best quote: “Rhaenyra married Laenor Velaryon as a teenager and produced three sons by him (at least officially, more on that in a minute), then married her uncle Daemon after Laenor’s death (which was fake, more on that too).” —Riley McAtee

Despite an offseason mired in controversy, the Kansas City Chiefs headed to the White House last week to celebrate their Super Bowl win. Will the team avoid politics moving forward by continuing to shake it off? Sorry, we couldn’t resist. 

Best quote: “Can they get back to that ceremony next year? And can they wave off political attention until then?” —Nora Princiotti

Don’t rule out the Mavericks just yet, despite a massive win by the Celtics. Boston may have a recovered Kristaps Porzingis, but Dallas has proved this playoff season that it can win a series following a Game 1 loss. 

Best quote: “Thanks to that first-quarter explosion and a tremendous defensive effort across all four frames, the Celtics blew out the visiting Dallas Mavericks in Game 1, 107-89.” —Zach Kram
