WASHINGTON, May 28, 2016 – While Game of Thrones likes to deliver the fatal blow to characters, and the fans, they will not make us wait a week for episode 6, “Blood of My Blood,” which will air at its usual time, 9:00 p.m. et on HBO.
Join CommDigiNews #GOT Chat as we watch the show with our resident experts that help us keep the multiple moving pieces in order. And there are a lot of moving pieces that will reach new positions tonight but will they be the positions of the conqueror or conquered?
The end of episode 5 revealed the origin of Hodor’s name, which caused a common angst among fans that realized he lived knowing of his impending death. It also highlighted Bran’s ability to affect the past.
So will Bran change Hodor’s fate, and possibly his?
Tonight’s episode preview seems to be targeting the unavoidable confrontation between the High Sparrow and the Tyrell army. Cersei Lannister continues to plot her revenge against the old man, and for the death of her daughter, as House Tarly shows up in King’s Landing.
Margaery Tyrell is nothing if not resourceful and based on her exchance with her brother, she may have her own plan to escape. Does she plan to “convert” to the ways of the Sparrow and destroy from the inside out?
The “Game of Thrones” Season 6, episode 6 synopsis is also pretty cryptic.
“An old foe comes back into the picture. Gilly (Hannah Murray) meets Sam’s (John Bradley) family. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a difficult choice. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) faces off against the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce),”
We are closely watching Ayra who want to become one of the faceless men a cult of mystic assassins that worship the Many-Faced God, Death believing that death is a merciful end to suffering.
She has been tasked with killing an actress that she questions killing when J’qen informs her: “A servant does not ask questions.”
Is it a test of Ayra’s obedience to the House of Black and White or the catalyst to her leaving and joining her brothers and sister in the fight against Ramsey Bolton for control of the North.
