As period 7 methods, below are the wide strokes of what you require to keep in mind from Video game Of Thrones period 6 ...


Unscrupulous daughter-in-law Queen Margaery being amongst her sufferers, Cersei unknowingly caused the self-destruction of her youngest child, King Tommen. Seeing the destruction his mommy had actually functioned, inadequate Tommen took a brief stroll off a high structure, leaving Cersei and also her brother-lover Jaime childless. Maggy the witch's prediction regarding all 3 of Cersei's youngsters predeceasing her was therefore confirmed real.

Jaime Lannister has yet to leap out of a home window, however at the very least appears to have actually quit pressing youngsters out of them. He as well as Bronn went back to King's Touchdown fresh from efficiently taking back Riverrun from the Blackfish (as well as claiming a psychological farewell to Brienne of Tarth, to whom Jaime talented Oathbreaker forever) just to witness his power-hungry sis take the Iron Throne.

In between the Lannister queen's instability as well as preference for Dornish red wine, hers is rarely most likely to be a delighted as well as lengthy regime. Dany, last seen en path to Westeros with an armada of ships and also Cersei's abhored little bro Tyrion at her side, need to make sure that. Dany is dead-set on recovering the throne for the Targaryens, and also, unless Cersei has sufficient wildfire cached to tackle 3 dragons, Daenerys Stormborn is likely to win that battle.

It recommends naught, naturally, due to the fact that the genuine fight is coming. The one in between fire as well as ice, the living as well as the dead, Hardhome times a million.


The 7 Kingdom's 3 primary hopes because battle are Samwell Tarly, Bran Stark as well as Dany's dragons. The previous invested period 6 taking a trip from Castle Black to the Castle, where he wants to look into the White Walkers as well as discover their weak points. Sam took his 2 likes, Wildling Gilly and also Little Sam, together with him, preparing to drop them at his family members seat while he took place to Old Community. His papa being a substantial Wildling-hating racist created Sam to reconsider that strategy, as well as the 3 of them took away in the midnight, taking the household Valyrian steel blade Heartsbane with them.

Bran Stark started period 6 with the enthusiastic job of discovering "whatever". Taught to take a trip psychically via time as well as room by the 3 Eyed Raven, he invested the period having visions of Westeros past, future as well as existing. He saw exactly how the Kid of the Woodland had actually very first produced the White Walkers by putting dragonglass right into the hearts of guys (the suggestion was to utilize them as a tool in their battle versus the First Males), as well as additionally found out the crucial details that his step-brother Jon Snow remained in truth, his relative and also a Targaryen beneficiary.

Jon being the youngster of Ned's sibling Lyanna Stark as well as Rhaegar Targaryen was a long-held follower concept ultimately validated in period 6. It implies Jon is Dany's nephew, as well as for that reason an also larger gamer than he was formerly.

Having actually been stabbed to fatality at the end of period 5, Jon was resuscitated by R'hllor priestess Melisandre (that's about a billion years of ages as well as looks it when she removes her magic pendant) early in period 6. Keeping in mind absolutely nothing of his time invested dead, upon waking, Jon promptly commenced carrying out the males (and also young boy) that had actually mutinied versus him then gave up the Evening's Watch. He prepared to go southern awhile of a remainder up until Sansa appeared and also persuaded him to eliminate Ramsay Bolton's military rather. He did that, won, and also was crowned King in the North because of this.


Were it except Sansa and also Littlefinger, nevertheless, Jon would certainly probably have actually stopped working. It was Sansa that ingested her satisfaction as well as contacted ask Petyr Baelish for the supports that turned up in the nick of time to save the Stark military. Sansa had actually rejected Littlefinger's earlier deal helpful, what with him having actually wed her off to vicious rapist Ramsay Bolton to advance his very own power. Sansa not just took her retribution on her hubby by feeding him to his dogs, she additionally rejected Littlefinger's proposition at the end of period 6. Baelish's desire for resting on the Iron Throne with girl Sansa at his side would certainly need to stay a desire.

In a periphrastic method, Jon likewise has Brienne of Tarth to give thanks to for his success in the Fight of the Bastards. She as well as Podrick saved Sansa from capture by Bolton soldiers after Ramsay's new bride took off Winterfell with Theon Greyjoy in tow. Brienne vouched loyalty to Sansa as well as accompanied her to Castle Black, where she informed Melisandre as well as Davos that she would certainly eliminated Stannis in retribution for the period one fatality of Renly. Brienne was then sent out to Riverrun to hire the Blackfish to assist Sansa as well as Jon's fight, however fell short because of him dropping in a last stand versus the Lannister-Frey military.

Not wishing to encounter Jon, Theon left Sansa's side after their retreat and also dived in for the Iron Islands. He got back to locate his daddy dead as well as a Kingsmoot being held to determine his follower as leader of the Krakens. Theon backed sis Yara for the task, yet the Ironborn rather chose their unethical uncle Euron, last seen pressing Theon as well as Yara's papa Balon off a bridge. (Balon had a blade out, so do not really feel also sorry for him.) Yara and also Theon then took Euron's fleet as well as cruised it to Meereen with a couple of devoted guys to parlay with Daenerys. An offer being struck, they prepared sail for Westeros.

Not all. Dany sent out Ser Jorah Mormont off looking for a treatment for his greyscale after he proclaimed his love for the Mom of Dragons.


Daario Naharis as well, was left in Meereen to regulation in Dany's stead (and also no more in her bed). Fingers crossed he prices far better than Tyrion, that, while ruling with Varys while Dany was being held by the Dothraki, struck an undesirable handle the bad masters of Slaver's Bay. Profaning slave-masters, they double-crossed Tyrion however thankfully his old employer appeared on the back of a dragon in the nick of time to save the scenario.

Aside from that, Tyrion invested the majority of period 6 alcohol consumption in Dany's throne area and also stopping working to obtain Grey Worm and also Missandei to recognize the idea of a joke. He missed his great chum Varys, that had actually gone off to hire even more competitors to their reason and also wound up agenting the abovementioned team-up in between Ellaria Sand and also Olenna Tyrell.

Mentioning redoubtable ladies, period 6 offered us our initial correct intro to leader of Bear Island, ten-year-old Lyanna Mormont. When we expanded up, the target market extra or much less shed their mind over exactly how trendy she was as well as elected her the individual we all desired to be.

Proceeding that motif, Arya's improvement right into a Braavosi Faceless Male was shortened in period 6 as she understood she was fairly crazy about her existing face. Arya stated herself a Stark and also give up your house of Monochrome. When the Waif attempted to murder her for desertion, Arya transformed the tables, eliminated her previous fitness instructor, as well as ran away to Westeros.

When back there, Arya promptly approached going across even more names off her kill listing, the initial of which was Walder Frey, host of the Red Wedding event where her mommy and also sibling were killed. Not one to do points by fifty percents, Arya prepared Frey's boys in a pie as well as slit his throat. Currently the only names continuing to be on her listing are Cersei Lannister as well as Gregor Clegane.


One name had actually been removed Arya's listing also prior to she left him for dead in period 4: The Dog. Assumed a remains, the Dog was located to be quite to life in period 6 as well as looking for redemption for his previous criminal offenses. Will he locate it by signing up with Thoros of Myr and also Beric Dondarrion in the League Without Banners' battle versus the White Walkers?

The White Walkers was in charge of the period's saddest minute-- the fatality of Hodor, genuine name: Wylis. Bran Stark was disclosed as the reason for Hodor's uncommon impairment-- by warging right into him to get away a White Pedestrian assault while all at once in a vision of the past, Bran fried Wylis' mind. Wylis' previous self psychically listened to Meera's direction in the here and now to "Hold the door!", providing him a seizure as well as leaving him just able to state a compressed variation of the expression "Hodor" forever. Hodor permitted Bran as well as Meera to leave however was abused by White Walkers while doing so.

Excitingly, period 6 saw the return of a long-awaited period one personality in Benjen Stark, bro to much-missed Ned. Because we last saw him, he would certainly been stabbed by a White Pedestrian yet reminded half-life by the Kid of the Woodland that stuck him with dragonglass (an arising motif ...) and also is currently caught Past the Wall surface. Benjen conserved Bran and also Meera's lives prior to sending them on their method.

When it come to enchanting rebirth, Melisandre finished period 6 being ousted by Jon Snow on discomfort of implementation. Davos, that confirmed himself devoted to Jon and also remains to be an overall great kind, uncovered the remains of the pyre at which little Shireen was charred to life in period 5 as well as could not forgive the Red Priestess wherefore she had actually done.


To wrap up then, essential fatalities in period 6 consist of: Hodor (my heart!); Ramsay as well as Roose Bolton (hooray!); Tommen, Grand Maester Pycelle (stabbed to fatality by kids) and also everybody existing in the Great Sept for Cersei and also Loras' test, which suggests the High Sparrow, Queen Margaery, Ser Loras, Mace Tyrell, Lancel and also Kevan Lannister; Allister Thorne and also the mutineers of Castle Black (boo!); Walder Frey and also his 2 children (hooray!); Rickon Stark (zig zag, Rickon!); The Blackfish; Trystane and also Doran Martell; Balon Greyjoy; The Waif; the 3 Eyed Raven; a number of rapey Khals; Osha (her throat slit by Ramsay); Wun the titan (that passed away a hero aiding the Starks loss Ramsay); Shaggydog and also Summertime.

There were several, much more, certainly, yet those are the headings.
