details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 6 episode 5: The Door

Game of Thrones season 6 episode 5, The Door ended on a tragic note, with the deaths of the Three-Eyed Rave, Children of the Forest, Summer and Hodor. After the emotional and slightly optimistic episode 4, where we saw many reunions, The Door abruptly pulled us back and reminded us that this is Game of Thrones. In the episode we also saw the Kingsmoot and how Theon and Yara had to flee from the Iron Islands to avoid getting killed by Euron Greyjoy. Arya was reminded of the unpleasant memories of the past when she went on the mission that was given to her by Jaqen.

However, the entire episode wasn’t gloomy and we got to see some positive developments. Finally Sansa Stark has made it clear that from now onwards she is not going to be manipulated by anyone. She made it clear to Petyr Baelish that he wasn’t anymore in her good books and just saying sorry wasn’t going to resolve the blunder he had committed. We also finally got to know about the origin of the White Walkers and that was a big surprise. We got introduced to a new Red Priestess named Kinvara and she left Lord Varys stunned, which is a very rare thing

Overall, the episode was exciting and it kept up on the edge. Here are the details that you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 6 episode 4 : The Door.

1. Arya sees Ned’s getting killed again

In the first season young Arya was present during the execution of her father, Ned Stark and it was a traumatising sight for her. Naturally, when she saw the play about the events in Westeros and witnessed the beheading of Ned Stark, all the traumatic memories of the past came back to her and you can see it on her face. In season 1, she was a part of the crowd that witnessed Ned Stark’s execution and in this season, while actors played the roles of characters from Westeros, Arya played herself.

2. Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men made a cameo in the show

During the play that Arya watched, we saw members of the Icelandic folk-pop band Of Monsters and Men in the role of the band that played the music during the King’s Landing scenes. The official Game of Thrones Twitter account had even tweeted about them before the show aired.

This is not the first time that a band has made an appearance in the show. In the previous seasons, we have seen Gary Lightbody, who is the lead singer of Snow Patrol, Will Champion from Coldplay, Sigur Ros and Mastodon making an appearance on the show.

 

3. George R.R. Martin’s upcoming book Winds of Winter was mentioned during the play

During the play, there was a mention of George R.R. Martin’s next book, The Winds of Winter. The actress who played Cersei entered by saying the following lines, “I feel the winds of winter as they lick across the land

 

4. Who said anything about him

This isn’t the first time we have heard this line in Game of Thrones. We last heard the line in Game of Thrones season 5, when Lord Varys was talking about a person who was fit to rule Westeros and when Tyrion replied, “Good luck finding him,” Lord Varys simply replied, “Who said anything about him?,” while referring to Daenerys Targaryen.

This time it was Tyrion’s chance to use the same line while talking with Varys about the new Red Priestess.

 

5. The similarity between the Three-Eyed Raven and tree face

details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 6 episode 5: The Door

If you noticed carefully, the Weirwood tree in the scene in which we see the origin of the White Walkers has a face which closely resembles the Three-Eyed Raven. Now this is Game of Thrones and it is filled with tiny hints that indicate about major events in the show in the future. So does this similarity mean anything?

 

6. The Spiral pattern

During the vision where Bran went back in the past and witnessed the creation of the White Walkers, we were shown a top view of the tree and the stones around it. If you notice carefully, we have seen this spiral pattern before in the show.

We last saw a similar spiral pattern in Game of Thrones season 3, when the Night’s Watch was attacked by the White Walkers and this is what was left behind. This pattern assumes huge significance as the pattern is used both by the Children of the Forest and also by the White Walkers.

 

7. The actor who plays the first ever White Walker, also plays the Night’s King

details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 6 episode 5: The Door

We saw the Children of the Forest creating the first White Walker but he wasn’t any normal White Walker. The actor who we saw in the scene was Vladimir Furdik, who also plays the role of the Night’s King.

Bran Stark might have made invading Westeros possible for the White Walkers

 

8. Winter killed Summer

details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 6 episode 5: The Door

In the climax scene, we saw that Summer sacrificed his life while trying to protect Bran, Meera and others. It was sad to watch another Direwolf die. The important thing to note is that Summer was killed by the Wights, who represent Winter. We saw that the Night’s King entered the cave and massacred almost everyone and now there are chances that even the Wall might fall and Westeros will be invaded by the White Walkers. The killing of Summer by the Wights indicated that Winter has arrived.

Who is Ser Harrold Westerling? Here’s who Graham McTavish is playing on House of The Dragon

Published

Not long ago, several pictures of Graham McTavish were leaked on the internet, wearing a full-scale Kingsguard body armour from the set of House of The Dragon. Recently, it has been confirmed by House of The Dragon’s official Twitter handle that he’s playing Ser Harrold Westerling on the show. Here’s a quick look at McTavish’s newest persona.

Ser Harrold Westerling is a knight of House Westerling and the Lord Commander of Viserys I Targaryen’s Kingsguard. Harrold is one of the longest-serving members of the Kingsguard. He was once a powerful knight with a successful military background, and eventually succeeded Ser Ryam Redwyne as Lord Commander. He is tasked by the king to watch over and guard Rhaenyra Targaryen.

Harrold Westerling was announced as a recurring character in House of the Dragon on December 8, 2020. The character description on HBO’s official website reads as follows:

Who is Ser Harrold Westerling? Here’s who Graham McTavish is playing on House of The Dragon

The Commander and longest-serving member of the Kingsguard who still remembers the lustre of the storied Seven Knights. A once-powerful Knight and a successful military background so a man with presence and status. Given the responsibility to the King to watch over and guard the Princess. In the current regime, where widespread peace has led to complacency and indulgence, he feels something of a loss of purpose, but nevertheless serves the King with a fierce, if quiet, loyalty.”

This makes sense as the recent leaks from the House of The Dragon set pictured him in the same vicinity as Olivia Cooke and Milly Alcock, who play Queen Alicent Hightower and a young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen respectively.

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Lucifer Season 6 is finally out! The comic book/supernatural based hit series came to an emotional end on September 10 this year with the release of its final season. The show paid a lot of homages to various pop culture icons, including Game of Thrones. Let’s have a look at all the times Game of Thrones was referenced by various characters on Lucifer.

 

Season 3 Episode 14

Cain aka Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling) has been roaming the earth for thousands of years. He’s tired of losing his loved ones due to an immortality curse placed on him by God. After a long and bloody skirmish with Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), he says and believes he has ‘nothing to live for‘. Amenadiel replies, “Have you tried Game of Thrones?”

 

Season 4 Episode 8

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Lucifer is dealing with his emotional issues, after getting back with his ex Eve (Inbar Lavi). Chloe (Lauren German) tells Lucifer about a prophecy, that apocalyptic events will occur on earth and Hell will freeze over if Lucifer meets his true love. To which he replies, “Perhaps winter is coming.

 

Season 5 Episode 9

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

God (Dennis Haysbert) is on earth and organizes a small family reunion at Linda’s (Rachael Harris) house. Lucifer considers himself the smartest in the family, much like Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones. He drags the chair to sit at the other head of the table in an equal position to his father. Tyrion does something similar at the small council in King’s Landing.

 

Season 5 Episode 16

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Michael and Lucifer (both played by Tom Ellis) have agreed to decide who will be the new God of their universe, by a poll that Lucifer is most likely to lose. All the angels show up at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and Michael is wearing a special medieval warrior-like attire for the occasion. Lucifer mocks him for his poor fashion sense, asking him “Is winter coming or something?

 

Season 5 Episode 16

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Lucifer and Michael are locking horns for a final showdown, because Michael is willing to kill those who won’t obey him. In a dramatic and long-drawn-out battle, Lucifer defeats Michael with Chloe’s help. He orders him to stand down and ‘bend the knee’, and then goes on to cut off his wings. “Bend the knee” is frequently used by Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, whenever she subdues an enemy.

Legendary Valyrian Steel Swords to look out for in House of The Dragon: Part 2

Legendary Valyrian Steel Swords to look out for in House of The Dragon: Part 2

Valyrian Steel Swords are very priceless and magical weapons that are possessed by very few. By the time of Game of Thrones, we see only a handful of individuals who have access to them. But 300 years ago, during the events of House of the Dragon, they were much more in number.

We have seen a few of them in HBO’s TV adaptation of Game of Thrones. But there will be a lot more in the prequel show House of The Dragon. There have been about 227 Valyrian steel swords that have been recorded in the history of Westeros, most of them have been lost or destroyed. Let’s have a look at a few of them that might make an appearance in House of The Dragon. We covered a few of them in the previous article, here’s the link. Do check it out!

 

Lamentation

Lamentation was a famed Valyrian steel sword that belonged to House Royce. Ser Willam Royce wielded the blade during the Dance of the Dragons. The sword was torn from the hand of Willam, however, when he was killed during the Ride of the Seven. With Willam’s death, the sword was carried off, never to be found again. However, some rumours claim that Ser Warrick Wheaton slashed a wing off of Syrax with a Valyrian steel sword, likely Lamentation, during the Storming of the Dragonpit.

 

Dark Sister

Dark Sister is a famous longsword of Valyrian steel. It is one of two ancestral swords of House Targaryen. Dark Sister had a slender blade originally designed for a woman’s hand. It was wielded by Visenya Targaryen during Aegon’s conquest of Westeros. During the Dance of the Dragons, it was the prime weapon of choice for Prince Daemon Targaryen. Dark Sister was lost when the last wielder of the sword, Brynden Rivers, went missing beyond the Wall in 252 AC.

 

Longclaw

Longclaw is the ancestral Valyrian steel sword of House Mormont. It is the same sword Jeor Mormont gifts to Jon Snow at the Night’s Watch in Game of Thrones. The Mormonts supported the Starks in their allegiance with Rhaenyra Targaryen during the Dance of the Dragons.

 

Lady Forlorn

Lady Forlorn is the ancestral longsword made of Valyrian steel belonging to House Corbray. The sword has a heart-shaped ruby in its pommel and its blade is smokey-grey in appearance. Ser Corwyn Corbray wielded Lady Forlorn during the Dance of the Dragons. It was in the possession of Ser Lyn Corbray in Game of Thrones.
