Game Of Thrones' Confusing Time Jumps, Explained

Ever felt like you could get so much stuff done if you lived on Game of Thrones time? Sunday night's season 6 finale saw both Arya and Varys covering a lot of ground in no time flat. Did they have a secret, anachronistic private jet to shoot them around? Does Daenerys need a new travel agent? What does it all mean?

The GoT community was quick to catch on that timelines in the finale didn't quite make sense. Luckily, writer/producer Bryan Cogman was happy to address their concerns on Twitter.

Long story short: Fudging the timeline makes for better TV. And that's why Varys magically shuttles back and forth from Meereen, okay?
