If you haven’t watched Season 5 finale, spoilers ahead!
Thought I’d write up a quick recap of where the characters were at the end of last season and what we might expect in this first episode that premieres tonight.
Last we saw them…
Arya Stark – Has defied the Many-Faced God by killing someone she was not supposed to. The last we see her, she has lost her eyesight as punishment.
Sansa Stark – Escapes with Theon Greyjoy, jumps over the wall of Winterfell and into the snow away from Ramsay.
Ramsay Bolton – Slaughters Stannis’s army in the snow.
Stannis Baratheon- Wife and daughter dead, and then he is Killed by Brienne of Tarth as revenge for Renly Baratheon’s death. (Good Riddance!)
Jaime Lannister – On their journey home from Dorne, he tells Myrcella she is his daughter. Myrcella is poisoned to death by Ellaria Sand as revenge for Prince Oberyn’s death.
Melisandre – Aka, The Red Woman, steals a horse and abandons Stannis when he is on the brink of war and rides to the wall. She arrives to give Davos Seaworth the bad news of Shireen’s death, and everyone else.
Cersei Lannister – After her walk of shame through the streets of King’s Landing, she finds herself somewhat broken. She finds comfort in the arms of a giant Knight, (who we can assume is Gregor Clegane, The Mountain, in Zombie form.)
Tyrion Lannister – Left to help rule Meereen in Dany’s absence along with Grey Worm, Missandei, and Varys.
Daenerys Targaryen – Ends up in the middle of no where when she takes off on her dragon Drogon. She gets captured by a Dothraki horde.
Daario and Jorah – Ride off in search of Dany.
Sam and Gilly – Ride off to old town, so Sam can become a Maester.
Jon Snow – Is betrayed by men of the Night’s Watch and killed. The last we see is Jon’s blood seeping into the snow.
Bran Stark – the last we saw of Bran was in season four, very north of the wall with the three-eyed raven.
What might we see in tonight’s episode? Will Jon Snow come back?
Is Jon Snow truly dead? The dead may walk in Game of Thrones and the Lord of Light might spare our handsome leader.
I think the Red Woman has arrived at the wall to bring Jon Snow back to life. And then Jon Snow will reappear as Jon Stark to kick some Bolton ass!
Sansa might have some of the same ideas in mind…to take back Winterfell and find her brothers.
We will also finally get to see Bran Stark in this season! In truth, I have no idea what his plans are, and can’t even guess.
Winter is Coming!!!
