And our favourite Khaleesi is back in the most badass way possible! Read on the review of this episode oh and spoilers alert...
Game of Thrones season 6 sure is a happening series of events as a lot seems to be going on simultaneously at every corner. If you guys remember, the third episode was quite a bit of tying loose ends after Jon Snow's resurrection. Surely, him quitting the Night's Watch is very much justifiable as he was back stabbed by his own brothers (Brother's of the Night's Watch, Alliser Thorne). Although, even now when we see Jon reach the fourth episode of the series, we can't help but yelp a bit of joy in our heads because hey, we can expect anything from the producers!
While the third episode wasn't all sweet scented roses or even thorns everywhere, in other words, it was just boring. A drag on of how the Starks are rising after a terrible fall. Even Tyrion and Varys' chit chatting was rather too much. However, we're again in for some new twist in the story after watching the episode, Book of the Stranger, my faith in George R R Martin's twisted sulci and gyrus has been reinstated to too many levels. This episode once again focussed on the rise of Daenerys as the one and only Khaleesi of the Dothraki clan. The way she rose to attain her position after being thrown in the widow's temple is totally rad and badass that you simply cannot miss! As for what else happened in the episode, scroll below to find out.
# A reunion of the Starks. Nothing felt more heartwarming than to see Jon Snow and Sansa Stark reunite as she reached Castle Black. Obviously, she is accompanied by Breinne of Tarth, but watching the happiness in their faces is very touching.
# Guess what, Little Finger aka Petyr Baelish is back. He has been working alongside Robin Arryn and just convinces rather manipulates him to head North and save Sansa, who they believe is under Ramsay Bolton's captivity by standing against Bolton with their army.
# Tommen spills the beans to his mother Cersei that Margaery will have to walk the same walk of shame as her, which has been told to him by High Sparrow, in confidentiality. Hence, enemies Olenna Tyrell and Cersei, Jamie, shake hands with a view to stand against the High Sparrow.
# Margaery on the other hand has been reunited with her brother, Loras, who has been confined because of his sexual preferences. They too have a heartfelt sibling moment.
# Crazy Bolton strikes again. This time, he sends a letter to Jon Snow asking him to return his wife aka Sansa back or the consequences of the same won't be nice as he has Rickon locked in his dungeon. Plus, a strong army waiting for orders at Winterfell. Determined to defeat him, Sansa convinces Jon to fight back and take back their home from the cruel Bolton.
# Tyrion along with Grey Worm and Missandei crack an alliance with the Masters of Meereen, by giving them seven years to allow slavery, post which the rule shall be terminated. Grey worm and Missandei get the public's fury over this decision of Tyrion, who is currently handling the administration in the absence of Daenerys.
# Daenerys on the other hand, with her USP of playing with fire, kills Khal Moro and other Khals inside a hut that she sets fire to, whilst in it. Again, she emerges out of the fire without any clothing and takes back what rightfully belongs to her, the name Khaleesi and the Dothrakis clan. I must say, this one was quite bang on!
The episode, minus the Meereen bit where I believe Tyrion's tactics and quick wit is being wasted, was actually pretty badass just like the other episodes so far. Generally the makers follow a pattern of making things boring initially but this season sure has broken that pattern by constantly giving us new things to look forward. I would like to know what's happening next with Bran and Arya though. What are your thoughts? Tell us in the comments section below!
