Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 6 S06E06

“Blood of My Blood” episode 6 from Game of Thrones season 6.

In episode 6 of Game of Thrones 6th Season, Meera is still pulling Bran through the snow as he remains in vision-state, but she is clearly getting tired.  Bran experiences a rush of visions, including King Aerys shouting “Burn them all!.”  Meera cannot go on any further and tries to wake Bran, who comes out of his visions to say “They’ve found us.”  She can hear wights approaching through the trees.  With no more energy left to pull Bran, and barely enough to draw her sword, she apologises to Bran for failing him, as the wights come into sight.

Just as all appears hopeless a mysterious rider appears and attacks the wights with a flaming flail.  Once the wights in the immediate vicinity have been dealt with he urges Meera and Bran to come with him before more arrive, and they escape on horseback.

A comedy of (bad) manners played out as Sam and his significant other visited the Maester-to-be’s posh family. They were all terrifically dim and privileged – apart from dad Randyll, who fumed that Sam was a) still alive and b) involved with a “Wildling Whore”. “He dishonours us,” ranted the elder Tarly as Gilly’s lineage came up between starter and main course  – awkward for Sam but a powerful reminder for us as to the forces that had compelled him to join the Night’s Watch and to now take on the even steeper challenge of becoming a Maester (speciality: White Walker destruction).He’s bringing Gilly to Old Town after after all.

Walder Frey is not dead yet

We know this because the traitorous nobleman proclaimed “I’m not dead yet” as he waggled a fist at the heavens. But for how much longer will he remain among the living? Ever since he assisted in the Red Wedding Frey has had a prominent place on Arya’s kill list and with Bastard v Bastard conflict bubbling in the north there is every likelihood he could meet a sticky demise helping Ramsay Bolton’s push against Jon Snow. Why would Game of Thrones go to the bother of bringing Walder back if not to give the odious minor royal the cruel end he so justly merits?
