SAN DIEGO, May 10, 2015 – Viewers know by now that it’s not a good idea to get too attached to your favorite characters in ‘Game of Thrones.’ Author of the original novels upon which the series is based, George R.R. Martin, has no qualms killing people off. He says he values the element of the surprise. Producers of the HBO series version have followed suit. So the title of this week’s episode could have you holding your breath.
But in this case, the title refers to a quote from Maester Aemon at Castle Black, who says “Kill the boy and let the man emerge.” He refers to Jon Snow, who has become the new Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
Snow is young, and has shown compassion several times to his foes, most recently Mance Rayder. Winter is coming, and Jon needs to man up.
Fair to reveal the majority of the action this episode happens in Winterfell, where Sansa Stark is about to marry Ramsey Bolton. Theon/Reek is lurking and hoping to avoid crossing paths with Sansa. There is also a baby on the way at Winterfell. Nearby, Brienne is looking for Sansa and vows she will keep her safe.
