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,
Game of Thrones was the most celebrated show of the 21st century. The fantastical drama set the bar for quality TV shows really high. The series was famous for its beautiful scenery, gruesome battles and on-point casting. However, it was also famous for various controversial scenes. Quite a number of viewers were shocked by the amount of nudity and sex scenes on the HBO epic. The cast tried to explain to the public why they were important to the story. Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner doesn’t feel shy went it comes to expressing herself on the screen. She plays a bold girlfriend of a drug dealer in her new movie Heavy.
The 24-year-old actress plays Maddie, the girlfriend of high-end drug dealer Seven ‘Sev’ Max (Daniel Zovatto). The couple is living it up in New York City. Sev knows exactly where to sell his gear; to trust-fund clients, at model parties and crazed drug-fuelled escapades.
Sev has a painful past as well as many vices of his own, which leads him to find comfort in all the wrong places. While Maddie is equally broken, she is Sev’s true love, but he realises this all too late.
Maddie says at the end of the trailer: “This is the kind of story where everyone is to blame and no one is spared. Then again they do say that love conquers all.”

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. It was a mystical journey that covered the lives of both the viewers and the performers for a decade. Fans of the series miss the show terribly (so does HBO as their money-making mine!). As a result, HBO is trying hard to woo back its audience with the help of one of their most famous franchise. They have already got the viewers on their toes by including the prequel to the show House of The Dragon in their programming line-up for 2021-22. The show is fast on track for release in 2022. A little peek into the set, here and there, always piques our interest.
Jany Temime, a costume designer who’s worked on famous movies like the Harry Potter series, Bruges, Skyfall and Gravity is a crew member for the prequel series. She posted a photo of Leavesden Studios in Watford, England, tagging it with #GameofThrones.
Leavesden Studios is the production headquarters for House of the Dragon in its first season. Although, like its mother show, it will also film in other areas. Temime posting this image can only mean that pre-production is rolling on, which means that filming will soon begin.
The sight of the rainbow over the show’s set might be a good omen by the Gods of Westeros. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
