7 details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 6 episode 7: The Broken Man

The latest Game of Thrones episode, The Broken Man had lot of exciting scenes and as usual we are back with our detailed analysis of the episode in which we share with you the minute details that you might have missed in the episode. We would like to call it the Game of Details. Even the latest episode has lot of minute details which you might have missed. So without any further delay, we will straightaway dive into the details.

 

1. Gods aren’t done with you

The Broken Man saw the return of the Hound and he seemed to be a changed man and he didn’t display any of the traits of the old Hound. Septon Ray was the only man with whom we saw the Hound interacting and their interaction was interesting as there might have been a subtle hint about what is going to happen in the future (yes, we are talking about the Cleganebowl). While talking about how the Hound almost died multiple times, Ray told him that the Gods weren’t done with him yet.

This wasn’t the first time someone said this to the Hound. The Hound fought with Beric Dondarrion and after the Hound won, Beric had something similar to say to the Hound.

It seems that all the Gods are interested in the Hound.

 

2. The Riverlands and the Dothraki Sea are the same place

The Hound and others are supposed to be somewhere in the Riverlands but on closer inspection, you will realise that you have already seen the place before.

In the last season the same location was used to shoot the scene in which Daenerys was captured by the Dothraki. Both the scenes were shot at Binevenagh, which is a mountain in Northern Ireland.

 

3. Arya Stark is left-handed

We know that Arya Stark is left handed and the show has made it clear to us many times about this.

However, Reddit user rolldownthewindow noticed that in the latest episode Arya Stark used her right hand to do all the things. She used her right hand to throw the bag of coins on the table, to lift them up and when she was stabbed, she used her right hand to apply pressure to the wound instead of her dominant hand.

This makes us wonder if we really saw the real Arya Stark in the episode or was it a continuity error as Maisie Williams is right handed and they simply forgot.

 

4. Arya Stark had already seen the face of the old woman

We saw Arya Stark casually strolling through the streets of Braavos as if she hadn’t aborted a mission and quit the Faceless Men. While standing on a bridge, she met an old woman who turned out to be the Waif and she got stabbed multiple times. However, an interesting thing to note is that Arya had already seen the face before in the House of Black and White. So the face wasn’t completely unknown to Arya.

5. The parallel with the Red Wedding

Arya Stark was stunned when she was suddenly attacked by an old woman, who turned out to be the Waif. The Waif stabbed Arya multiple times before Arya managed to escape by jumping off the bridge. This scene reminded many fans of the infamous Red Wedding, where Talisa Stark was killed by a Frey by stabbing her in the same fashion.

6. Jon and Sansa have camped near the place where Stannis had camped

details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 6 episode 7: The Broken Man

In the episode, when Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Davos Seaworth arrived at the camp, Davos informed them that Stannis had camped at the same place. This might not seem to be of much importance untill you think about the horrible scene from last season where Shireen was sacrificed to the Lord of the Light. It was this place where she was burned alive and Davos Seaworth is going to find about it very soon. In the trailer for season 6, we had seen a scene in which Davos was standing alone in the snow and when you see the image, you will realise that it’s the same place where Shireen was sacrificed.

7. The parallel between Arya and the Hound

Reddit user Et3rnauta has made an interesting observation about the situation in which Arya and the Hound are right now and the situation in which they were in season 4. Here’s what he had to say:

In the last chapter where Arya and The Hound were together (S4E10), Arya was searching for vengance and The Hound was left bleeding to death; and in this chapter, The Hound was searching for vengance and Arya was left bleeding to death.

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.

House of The Dragon’s Co-showrunner Ryan Condal confirms the existence of 3 famous Valyrian steel swords in the show

Valyrian steel swords have always been a source of fascination for the fans of Game of Thrones. Made of a fictional metal in the ancient land of Valyria, not many such weapons survive since its doom. They are very rare, priceless, magic-infused and are often passed down as family heirlooms. 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.

 

Vigilance

Vigilance is a Valyrian steel longsword belonging to House Hightower. It was last wielded by Ormund Hightower during the Dance of the Dragons and he fought for King Aegon II Targaryen. Ormund was slain by Roderick Dustin during the first battle of Tumbleton, after which the sword was lost forever.

 

Ice

Ned Stark wielding Ice, Game of Thrones (HBO)

Ice is the ancestral greatsword of House Stark made of Valyrian steel. It is the sword that was wielded by Ned Stark in Game of Thrones. The sword was wielded by Lord Cregan Stark during the Dance of the Dragons, who was the Warden of the North during the period. He supported Rhaenyra Targaryen due to his pledge known as the Pact of Ice and Fire.

 

Truth

Truth was a Valyrian steel longsword carried by Moredo Rogare, a Lysene noble from the wealthy banking Rogare family. During the Dance of the Dragons, the Rogare Bank rivalled the Iron Bank of Braavos in size. We might get a glimpse of the sword in House of The Dragon.

 

Orphan-Maker

Orphan-Maker is a Valyrian steel longsword belonging to House Roxton with a black blade. Ser Jon Roxton wielded the blade during the Dance of the Dragons. He sided with King Aegon II Targaryen and the sword was used in the Battle of Honeywine and the second battle of Tumbleton. The sword later came into the possession of Lord Unwin Peake, after which its whereabouts are unknown.

 

Blackfyre

Blackfyre is the fabled hand-and-a-half longsword of Valyrian steel once wielded by Aegon the Conqueror. It is perhaps the most famous sword in all of Westeros. Aegon II Targaryen’s possession of Blackfyre enhanced his legitimacy against his rival, Rhaenyra Targaryen, during the Dance of the Dragons. It was lost after the Blackfyre rebellion.
