Get caught up và we"ll see you back here on July 16.



Episode One: "The Red Woman"

This episode was mostly catching up on where we left off in Season Five: Jaime telling Cersei that Myrcella is dead; Jon Snow is still dead; Tyrion và Varys take a stroll through Meereen; Daenerys is back with the Dothraki; Melisandre is actually old(??); Arya is blind and getting beaten up on the streets by the Waif. But the most important thing khổng lồ happen is that Brienne and dear sweet Pod finally meet up with Sansa và save her from Ramsay"s hounds.



Episode Two: "Home"

There"s some growing tension in King"s Landing between the High Sparrow and Cersei, random people doing shit in the dreary Iron Islands, Bran has been sitting in a tree for two years having visions, and Tyrion is taming dragons and trying to run a whole goddamn country. But, of course, the key part of this episode is that Jon Snow is back—saved by Melisandre lượt thích everyone expected.



Episode Three: "Oathbreaker"

So Jon Snow is back and having some sort of existential crisis, the Mountain is also back, Arya has eyesight again after training with the Faceless Men, và Ramsay has abducted Rickon Stark (and also killed Shaggydog). But the key moment of this scene is the vision flashback of Eddard Stark và Howland Reed killing the Kingsguard outside of the Targaryens" Tower of Joy in Dorne.



Episode Four: "Book of the Stranger"

The big scene in this episode was when Daenerys torched all those Dothraki lords & didn"t get burned by the fire (again!), but that was just the over of an unnecessary detour on her meandering plot. What"s key here is that Sansa & Jon Snow are finally back together after literally the entire series—a relationship that will be important throughout this season & into the next.



Episode Five: "The Door"

Oh JFC, this was the "Hold the Door" episode in which brave, wonderful Hodor saved dumbass Bran by holding the goddamn door. (Sorry to lớn remind you, but his direwolf Summer died, too!). While we also learn the trắng Walkers were created by the Children of the Forest, it"s important to remember that we learn Bran has the ability khổng lồ control the future by changing the past.


Episode Six: "Blood of My Blood"

This was one of those middling episodes that pushed the plot forward ever so slightly with Jaime finally leaving King"s Landing for Riverrun và Arya bailing on the Faceless Men and then finding her sword, Needle. But what"s important khổng lồ remember, at least going forward, is that Bran is saved from the trắng Walker army by his uncle, Benjen Stark, who tells him that dragonglass stops the trắng walkers & he must become the Three-Eyed Raven.


Episode Seven: "The Broken Man"

Hey, so Ian McShane is fucking awesome và Sandor Clegane is back and looking for revenge. There are a few other things that are small, but key, to lớn the overall plot—like Yara và Theon planning to take the Iron Fleet to Daenerys, Jon and Sansa gathering a northern army complete with badass Lady Lyanna Mormont, và the High Sparrow pretty much taking nguồn in King"s Landing.


Episode Eight: "No One"

Jaime & Brienne have a sweet farewell as Riverrun falls to Lannister forces, King"s Landing is a shit show leading up lớn the big boom, và Arya finally kills the goddamn Waif. But the big moment here is when Daenerys finally returns khổng lồ Meereen on the back of Drogon lớn reclaim the city from the Masters" fleet.


Episode Nine: "Battle of the Bastards"

OK, so Daenerys and Tyrion destroy the Masters & finally meet Yara and Theon, but that"s hard khổng lồ remember after watching the biggest battle in TV history, the Battle of the Bastards between the following: On one side is House Stark, House Mormont, House Hornwood, House Mazin, và House Arryn storming Winterfell; on the other is House Bolton, House Karstark, và House Unber. This shit is bloody, big, and beautiful—but also very important, as Jon Snow retakes Winterfell, Rickon Stark dies, and Sansa watches as that dickhead Ramsay gets eaten alive by starving dogs.


Episode Ten: "The Winds of Winter"

With Tommen Baratheon dead, Cersei kills the following people with wildfire khổng lồ become Queen: Margaery Tyrell, Loras Tyrell, Mace Tyrell, The High Sparrow, Lancel Lannister, Kevan Lannister, Grand Maester Pycelle. Meanwhile, Lyanna Mormont gives a badass speech declaring Jon Snow King of the North, Daenerys sets sail for Westeros with Tyrion as Hand of the Queen (and also possibly a Targaryen), and Bran has a vision that confirms Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark và Rhaegar Targaryen và Daenerys is his aunt.

Where Are All These Characters Right Now?

Here"s your glossary of every chip core character and their whereabouts & status by the kết thúc of the sixth season. Essentially, all these people are starting khổng lồ converge in Westeros (either south at King"s Landing or North in Winterfell) in preparation for the big war to lớn come.

Arya Stark


Having finally become a Faceless assassin, Arya ends up at the Twins in Westeros, where she disguises herself as a serving girl and cuts Lord Walder Frey"s throat as revenge for the Red Wedding.

Bran Stark


Okay, so this is going khổng lồ take a little bit more to lớn than two sentences khổng lồ explain. We hadn"t seen Bran in a while because he ended up in a tree with the Three-Eyed Raven (a human who lives with the Children of the Forest và can vì chưng magic) learning Greensight, AKA magic that allows him to see into the future, the past, & dreams. Bran also has the ability khổng lồ "warg," or enter the minds of animals & control their actions. Anyway, he"s in this tree north of the wall và gets attacked by trắng Walkers where the Three-Eyed Raven dies. We last see Bran with Meera Reed after being saved by Benjen Stark out in the wilderness north of The Wall.

Brienne & Pod


Having fulfilled her oath & safely delivered Sansa khổng lồ her brother, Brienne of Tarth is last seen in a rowboat with Pod và the Valyrian sword Oathkeeper escaping Riverrun. She is sworn by honor (an oath given to Catelyn Stark before her murder) to lớn serve the Stark family, which means upon their next meeting she must fight Jaime. (An extra sentence here for the best character on the show.) Pod is Brienne"s squire, who is sweet và good.

Cersei Lannister


Cersei, the former mother of king Tommen Baratheon (the last of her children with Jaime to lớn die after Joffrey & Myrcella), ends Season Six sitting on the Iron Throne in King"s Landing after killing all of her enemies by blowing them up with wildfire in the Sept of Baelor.

Children of the Forest


These mysterious ancient creatures were apparently the first living beings in Westeros. Though they are considered a myth in modern-day Westeros, they very much exist (Bran and Benjen Stark have both spent time with them) and have archaic magic that is both key khổng lồ the creation & destruction of the white Walkers.

Daenerys Targaryen


After literally six seasons of watching Daenerys meander a different continent conquering pointless civilizations, she"s finally—FUCKING FINALLY—sailing toward Westeros with her dragons và her army lớn take part in the storyline that actually matters.

Eddard Stark


Though he was beheaded in the first season, Ned Stark"s actions have rippled throughout the entire series in the deaths and lives (but mostly deaths) of his family. In Season Six, we see two key flashbacks at the Tower of Joy (the name of which doesn"t really matter only what happens). These two flashbacks show a scene of Ned during Robert"s Rebellion (the war in which Robert Baratheon overthrew House Targaryen as ruler of Westeros), where he fights his way inside and is given baby Jon Snow (the forbidden son of his sister Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen) khổng lồ raise as his own.

Jaime Lannister


Having spent most of his Season Six standing idly by in King"s Landing, Jaime is sent briefly khổng lồ Riverrun, then returns lớn watch Cersei"s coronation as Queen. He seems pretty upset at all this drama.

Jon Snow


So, having died, then getting resurrected, then gathering an army and fighting a great battle, Jon Snow (who still doesn"t know he"s a Targaryen) has reclaimed his trang chủ castle of Winterfell. There, all the lords of the north proclaim him the King of the North, & soon he"ll be fighting the great war against the trắng Walkers.

Sandor Clegane AKA The Hound


The Hound worked as bodyguard for Joffrey Lannister (that little shit who was king for a brief time), and—even though he was technically a bad guy—he was pretty kind to lớn Sansa during all of it. He had a brief little buddy comedy stretch in Season Four with Arya, which ends with him getting killed in battle by Brienne of Tarth—or so you think, until he returns in this season & ends up with the Brotherhood Without Banners in the Riverlands.

Sansa Stark


At the over of Season Six, Sansa Stark has finally escaped abusive, horrible people & sits by her brother"s side in Winterfell as a trusted advisor. She has the power và respect she"s deserved this whole time.

Theon Greyjoy & Yara Greyjoy


Theon met his sister Yara for the first time before he was captured & castrated by Ramsay Bolton. After helping Sansa escape from Winterfell he reunited with his sister, hijacked the fleet of ships from the Iron Islands & brought them to lớn Daenerys to become part of her army sailing toward Westeros.

Tyrion Lannister


A proven leader, strategist, & dragon tamer (which might be important!), Tyrion Lannister has been made Daenery"s Hand of the Queen. He stands by her side as they sail for Westeros khổng lồ fight the great war.
