As speculated by Watchers on the Wall, it's entirely possible that episode 9, "The Battle of the Bastards", will be a one-location episode, in the grand tradition of "Blackwater" from Season 2 and "The Watchers on the Wall" from Season 4. The face-off Jaime has with the Blackfish, Brynden Tully, is one of the better-written scenes in this episode, and make no mistake, The Broken Man is full of such stellar scenes. Instead, the character on the show is credited as "Brother Ray". His mentor had been hung from the rafters, which is a damn shame, as Ian McShane is always a joy to watch.
If you don't want any content-oriented spoilers about the last few episodes of Game of Thrones Season 6, we'll give you one quick shot of awesomeness and you can be on your way: The last two episodes will be 60 minutes and 69 minutes. Either way, he is the leader of a small religious group on the Quiet Isle. One of the people helping is none other than The Hound, whom we last saw wounded after a fight with Brienne. Turn back now or forever hold your peace.
"It was my favorite week on "Game of Thrones" because it's a handsome little three-act play", Cogman told EW. "You have to have revenge, and expedient revenge". Have they lost the leadership of multiply-resurrected Lord Beric Dondarrian or Red priest Thoros of Myr? It has been several years, so you're not alone. Dondarrion was sent by Ned to the Riverlands, which were being terrorized by Gregor Clegane (now the Zombie Mountain). He was resurrected with Lord of Light powers by a character named Thoros of Myr, and formed the Brotherhood Without Banners to protect the smallfolk from Lannister harassment after the War of the Five Kings began.
Next we see Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick (Daniel Portman) arriving at Riverrun. The Hound: "You don't know the things I've done". The Hound beat Beric, who was then resurrected, and released the Hound. Melisandre showed up and took Gendry, and that's what landed Beric and Melisandre on Arya's kill list during season four.
Remember how The Hound hates fire? Sandor Clegane, the Hound, makes an appearance in this episode. Even the most ardent fans of Game of Thrones do not know the sure answer to the question "Is Arya Stark dead?" If it eventually leads to her getting closer to some other familiar faces, we'll be more than happy since it's never been altogether clear what the endgame would be in Braavos, especially since we never got too great of an indicator that she was really going to be interested in being a part of the House of Black and White.
