Game of Thrones season 6 delivered yet another stunning episode with The Door, which signaled a few major left turns for the series moving forward. Meera’s voice is apparently carried back into the past where Bran is still having a vision of the young Hodor/Wylis. With Daenarys and her army, Euron will return to Westeros and conquer it. Which is horrible enough. With Hodor, our knowledge changes our perspective on the character rather radically without changing the positive things we feel about him. Jorah decides to reveal his greyscale to Dany, who outright weeps at his condition. So great, now there’s two of them. Game of Thrones recap: ‘The Door’ — a cruel death caps off a startling episode Sansa takes charge. As for Summer … there’s a theory out there that all the direwolf names are prophetic. The Children wanted to create a weapon that could turn back the tide against humanity. Copyright ©2020 Designtechnica Corporation. Bran wakes with a scream, the King left his mark on his arm. Their escape is not without casualties. Meera and Bran get to The Door… yes… The Door! Head here for more details. So not in voice-over, not in Winterfell, but actually see him on camera say the word in the cave. Meera screams that he’s got to hold the door. “You’re always right, everything is the lord’s will,” he says with rare outright snark. He carries out that command, however, holding the door as the wights slowly chip through it. The wights start stabbing Hodor to death with their skeletal fingers. It’s a deeply touching exchange. The first has Bran warging-with-permission back in time. Tyrion is still in the spin zone and looking for a way for Dany to get the credit.

Their fears prove correct as the first thing Euron wants to know upon being revived is where they are so he can kill them. Well, mainly Dany and Ser Jorah, as Daario just stands there slightly uncomfortable. His physical body has been branded and, according to the Raven, this means the Night’s King can pierce the magical shield that protects them. Hodor shuts it just in time to keep the wights in. Bran Stark learns the origin of the White Walkers, Jon Snow plans to unite the north against the Boltons, Euron Greyjoy reveals his return to the Iron Islands at the Kingsmoot, Tyrion … She knows that Littlefinger knows everything there is to know about the players in Westeros, and he must have known what Ramsay would do to her after their wedding. Every sweep is fierce and deliberate and there's a determination to the old woman's movements that testifies to far greater battles she's fought in the past. But Leaf points out that humans shouldn’t have attacked them in the first place. Why should Varys trust their judgment now? She’s even wearing one of those black chokers and we wonder how old she really is. Summer was killed by the demons of winter (winter is coming, and so goes Summer). Sansa almost looks as if she’s addressing the audience. In other words, he’s now forgiven, finally. There’s several Bran sequences tonight and we’re going to hit all of them now. After trying unsuccessfully to wake the Raven, he decides to explore the visions on his own. She asks whether it is right to kill this woman who seems decent, but Jaqen reminds her that death claims all, decent, wicked, or otherwise. He reminds her that Melisandre had proclaimed Stannis as their savior, before Stannis lost two major battles and his life. Kinvara is unfazed, and speaks to Varys about his childhood, when a sorcerer castrated him as an offering. They stabbed a man (with dragonglass and created the Night’s King, a golem, a Frankenstein monster, to use in their battle (the stuntman who plays the Night’s King also played his human form, by the way). Whether it is the work of a boy or a god, magic is working in Westeros, and not for the best. Speaking of which: Tomorrow we’ll have another edition of the podcast with more to give away, and, as usual, we’ll have plenty to discuss (subscribe and listen). Whatever the extent of Bran’s powers, he ought to master them quickly; the White Walkers loom ever larger over the show, and their designs are still a mystery. This means she could be able to wrangle a Tully army in her fight against the Boltons. The Faceless Man enters and says he’s ready to give Arya another shot. Melisandre thought Stannis Baratheon was the one who was promised, and that seems even sillier now than it did in season 2.

Bran locks eyes with young Hodor, a.k.a. I’m wondering if the staff is going to be Arya’s preferred weapon moving forward, like Morgan on The Walking Dead. The dead army are outside, and even Leaf’s holy hand grenades can’t stop the White Walker commanders, only their zombie wights who swarm over the cave. Speaking with Jaqen later, she plots to poison the rum. A whole lot, as it turns out. While he undergoes the ritual drowning at the hands of the priest, Yara, Theon, and their troops steal the best ships in the fleet, sailing off before Euron can put them to death. Euron says his plan is to take his ships to Meereen and lure Dany to his side. Arya notices Lady Crane drinks rum and nobody else does.
