Game of Thrones season 6 finale preview Winds of WInter

Game of Thrones season 6 episode 9, Battle of the Bastards lived up to it’s hype and it was a ripper! The death toll in the episode was unprecedented and we got to see some raw action and scenes that made us scream and an ending that involved Ramsay Bolton’s death was brutal and it was a fitting end for him. Overall it was the best episode of the season and one of the best till date. The battle choreography was simply incredible and watching it made you smile with satisfaction. The episode ended on a happy note with the Stark banner on the walls of Winterfell once again and Daenerys made an alliance with Yara and Theon and she’s coming back to Westeros!

However, this is Game of Thrones and the characters still can’t heave a sigh of relief and take rest. HBO has released the preview for the season 6 finale and the center of all the action shifts back to King’s Landing. Cersei is getting ready for her trial and so is Loras Tyrell. He hardly had any role in this season and finally we will get to see him during the trial. The scene is followed by a scene in which we can see a White Raven flying. For those who don’t know, the Archmaesters from Oldtown send out White Ravens to indicate the arrival of Winter. The title of the next episode is Winds of Winter and now we know why. Jon and Sansa might have taken back Winterfell but the danger beyond the Wall still exists and that’s the biggest threat to Westeros at the moment.

We are also taken to the Twins where the Freys are celebrating with the Lannisters and we get to hear the famous line from the Red Wedding once again when Walder Frey modifies it a bit while saying, “The Freys and the Lannisters send their regards.” It will be interesting to see what happens at the Twins. Will we get to see Arya striking some names off her list as she’s finally coming back to Westeros and Walder Frey is on the list and why is Jaime still in the Riverlands? We thought that he was in a hurry to be with Cersei.

Back at Winterfell Petyr Baelish tells Sansa that thought that she knew what he wanted and it really seemed creepy and Davos confronts Melisandre in front of Jon Snow, demanding her to tell Jon what she did with Shireen. It is going to be one emotionally packed scene. We also get to see a glimpse of Bran and we are happy to see him again as we were wondering where he disappeared after being rescued by Benjen. We hope that we will get to see more of Bran and the White Walkers in the episode. Afterall the episode is titled Winter is Coming and what better to indicate that than the White Walkers at the doorsteps of Westeros.

The preview ends with Tyrion giving Daenerys advice, telling her that she’s in the great game now and it is terrifying. Take a look at the preview of the next episode below,

It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

no game of thrones sequel says hbo executive

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
