Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 1 “The Red Woman”

Spoiler alert

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 1 just came out and some pretty crazy stuff happens so lets get into it. We begin at the wall with Jon dead in the snow, Davos and Ghost and some loyal nights watch are in conflict with Alliser Thorne. Who seems to be taken over the watch after Jon’s death. Edd goes to get the wildings, who probably wont be to happy to hear what happened to Jon. Melisandre comes in and says she saw Jon fighting at Winterfell. So there is conflict to be expected with watchman, wildings and Davos. In Winterfell, Ramsey kills his father Roose Bolton to become the wardon of the North. Meanwhile Theon and Sansa are hunted by Boltons. Theon Greyjoy bravely risks his life to try to protect Sansa, which could hint into the begging of the redemption for him. But the Boltons are closing in, then Brienne of Tarth and Pod appear to save the day and carve up the Boltons. Sansa finally accepts Brienne’s service and protection, which is a beautiful moment for Brienne. Mirroring her pledges to Renly Baratheon and Catelyn Stark, hopefully she will have better luck keeping Sansa alive. In Kings Landing, Cersei Lennister is still healing from her walk of shame, she is crushed even further when she finds out her daughter Myrcella is dead. The high sparrow still holds Margery and Loras Tyrell as prisoners. Down in Dorne, Ellaria Sand suddenly kill Doran Martell because he did not want to start a war, and this is pretty crazy. Because the motivation of the sandsnakes is that they want to start a war with the Lannisters, since the Lannisters killed Ellaria’s husband Oberyn Martell. But is’nt it kind of crazy to kill Oberyn’s familly, so that you can avenge Oberyn. Many book readers don’t like this change, but maybe the show is just cutting it to the chase, getting to the point. That probably Dorne will go to war against the Lannisters. In Meeryn Varys and Tyrion talk about the risng political tensions and the threat of the sons of the harpy. It puts Tyrion in a good mood, he is really starting to shake of his earlier depression, he is getting back into the game. So that is episode 1 of season 6 of Game of Thrones. We have a lot of stuff happening and setting the plot up for the next episode.
