Written By | Jun 4, 2016

SAN DIEGO, June 4, 2016 – Not a single death in Episode 6 of “Game of Thrones” last week. Don’t you think Episode 7 this Sunday, June 5 will make up for lost time?

As the series ended last week, Arya made the decision to leave the Faceless Men as she realized life as a professional assassin didn’t suit her after all. But it’s a little like leaving the Mafia, not so easy. We know The Waif is coming after Arya for disobeying the command to kill Lady Crane. Now Arya can take Lady Crane up on her offer and leave with the acting troupe; we know Arya has also learned to act as well as kill. But first, Arya has to take care of business. The synopsis says “Arya makes a plan.”

It might not be as satisfying as seeing Joffrey or Ramsey Bolton bite the dust, but we’ll enjoy seeing Arya make The Waif pay for her sadistic ways.

Elsewhere, forces are moving into play and making alliances for what will be a battle for Winterfell and the North, known as “The Battle of the Bastards” led by Jon Snow against Ramsey Bolton. Jaime Lannister looks like a samurai in his battle armor paying a visit to Riverrun, where Sansa Stark’s uncle, Blackfish Tully (Catelyn Stark’s brother) has taken back the family estate from the Freys.

Sansa, Jon Snow and Ser Davos return north, while Yara and Theon Greyjoy are sailing to Volantis after leaving the Kingsmoot. Where are they going with all the ships they took?

Margaery is back home after escaping her Walk of Shame by recruiting King Tommen to join her in the Faith. From the published photos, it seems she has a hall monitor with her, Septa Unella. Cersei Lannister and Lady Olenna Tyrell are none too happy about this turn of events and previews give us a taste of a delicious showdown.

See the preview video here.

This episode is the shortest of the season at 51 minutes, but we will get longer episodes for the rest of the Season 6, including a whopping 69 minute Episode 10 for “The Winds of Winter.” Feeling the chill yet?
