In its sixth season, Game of Thrones is starting to feel like fan service for book readers.
And if you are not entirely convinced Episode 9 is the battle we have all been waiting for, Entertainment Weekly released the official list stating the directors on board for Season 6 of Game of Thrones and the episodes they will be directing. He also mentioned that as a television executive, he wished that they would go on for at least another six seasons.
So episode eight, airing this Sunday, is called "No One".
But it was Arya Stark who, after finally deciding to leave her training with the Faceless Men, had a bloody run-in with her former trainer/nemesis Waif.
Still lamenting the fact that the most recent episode of Game of Thrones was a mere 51 minutes long - barely long enough to cook and eat four Hot Pockets? Of course, fans still have their doubts about who wrote that taunting letter that was supposedly from Ramsay Bolton. Now that "GoT" is back, the series is heading to its end and according to reports, there are only a few episodes after "Game of Thrones" Season 6. This has the potential to be a true siege, which isn't all that interesting to watch, but I'm sure there's going to be a good twist or two that turns things up to eleven at the much sought after castle. So without much ado, let's just jump right into our Game of Thrones recap for this week. Because Clegane Bowl would have been welcome any other season, but for now, we need Gregor to help Cersei get the Bernie Bros. out of King's Landing. Cheating death in Game of Thrones is not that easy, but Sandor "The Hound" Clegane (Rory McCann) is not just an ordinary man. While the episode does tout him as a broken man, Clegane is way more healed than before.
Meanwhile, in Braavos, Arya Stark tries to escape a treacherous killing: her own murder. He is seen teamed up with Brother Ray, one of the new characters.
Jaime Lannister and the returning Bronn (the sellsword turned anointed knight turned sellsword?) are off to meet Brynden "Blackfish" Tully.
