After six years, winter has finally arrived and the show has overtaken the books. Throners are in uncharted territory now – anything can happen and anyone can die, although the latter goes without saying. The season five cliffhanger left one big question dangling: is Jon Snow really dead, and will the Red Woman resurrect him? Elsewhere, religious fanatics continue to hold the balance of power in King’s Landing while Cersei plots to overthrow the High Sparrow, and over in Braavos, Arya discovers what a girl must do to reclaim her sight in the service of the Many-faced God. Daenerys finds herself back in the company of the Dothraki and learns what happens to a former Khaleesi, and Bran, having now become the three-eyed raven, takes a trip back into the past, where intriguing insights into the nature of the White Walkers and Jon Snow’s lineage are revealed. The bloody battle to reclaim Winterfell from Ramsey Bolton is undoubtedly the highlight of the best GoT season to date. Things are finally gathering momentum towards the end game.
