We’ve crossed the halfway mark of Game of Thrones season 6 and the show continues to show no sign of slowing down. Blood of my Blood marks yet another episode of reveals on longstanding mysteries for both book readers and show watchers. The gents of The Cast Beyond the Wall are joined by GoodTrash Media’s very own Frightful Femme, Kirsten Therkelson.
Things pick up with Bran immediately after last week’s tragic sacrifice when he and Meera are rescued by none other than long lost Uncle Benjen Stark. After being attacked by white walkers, he’s more zombie now than man, but he remains loyal to the Three-Eyed Raven. We talk a bit about the somewhat anti-climatic reveal as well as the meaning of the flashes of Westerosi history witnessed by Bran.
After a week off, the show returned the wretched hive of scum and villainy of King’s Landing. This week saw Margery and Tommen making a deal with the High Sparrow which gave him the upper hand when faced with Jaime and the Tyrell army. It was a surprising turn of events that led to Jaime’s being set to Riverrun.
That’s right! After nearly fading into obscurity, Game of Thrones is heading back to the Riverlands to revisit the home of one Walder Frey. We discuss what this could mean heading into what appear to be the final chapter of the show.
If you just can’t get enough of the Westerosi hype, we hope you’ll click play and leave us a comment below. What did you think of Blood of My Blood? Let yourself be heard and we’ll read your feedback on next week’s show.
