Synopsis: With everyone now gathered at various points on the mainland of Westeros, the challenge for the throne is becoming more desperate for some and forceful by others. Only Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is left to try and convince everyone that the real war is coming from the north and everyone needs to stop and help with that. With the North already supporting him he turns to Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) with the aim to get her and her dragons help. As for Cersei (Lena Headey), even though she has already killed half of the dominant players in this game, she still seems far from done and continues to plot and scheme making her seem more insane with each passing day…until even she can’t argue that the threat in the north isn’t real.

Synopsis: After Cersei’s (Lena Headey) walk of shame, she is more determined than ever to get back at the Head Sparrow and all of his little Sparrow follows no matter who may get caught in the crossfire. Up at the wall, the death of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) has torn the men of the Night’s Watch apart with a select few holding on to the hope that death isn’t the end for our favourite Lord Commander. Of course, with magic back in the realm this isn’t an unreasonable expecting any longer and with the appearance of Sansa (Sophie Turner) at the wall, after escaping Ramsey’s clutches, the hope increases and the determination rises to win the north back from the horrors of the Boltons. Across the seas, Arya (Maisie Williams) continues her training to become a follow for the many faced gods but along the way discovers that maybe her past is more important than being no one. And then there is Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) who has her own challenges of masters fighting back, Dothraki taking her hostage and the reappearance of an old friend who comes baring gifts of a very strange nature. It’s a wild and crazy time with only wilder and crazier times yet to come. Continue reading TV Review: Game of Thrones: Season 6 (2016)

Synopsis: Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) was a force to be reckoned with and thus his death has thrown the world into disarray. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is of course full of guilt and determined to make things right in the eyes of his beloved sister while Cersei (Lena Headey) herself is holding onto the position of queen as tightly as she can and through any means possible. This of course means the introduction of the High Sparrow and his Sparrow follows who have been given the power to judge and crucify in the name of faith and the gods. Naturally this is not going to end well for anyone, what was Cersei thinking? Up in the North, poor little Sansa (Sophie Turner) is now married to the horror that is Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) and beyond there at the wall Jon (Kit Harington) is creating tension in amongst the brothers by becoming allies with the wildlings and letting them through the gates. But the most important part of the story lies across the seas where Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is battling against the Sons of the Harpy and trying to win favour of the citizens of Meereen. On top of that she’s making new friends and gaining new a new and interesting advisor which will make things much more interesting in the days to come..
