For the past six weeks, HBO has adhered to quite a strict and effective content plan when it comes to Game of Thrones, ensuring that excitement for season 6 ebbs and flows in parallel with each new episode.
Case in point: Yesterday brought forth the official description for “No One,” episode 6.08 of HBO’s fantasy drama, drawing attention to the testing times that lie in wait for Arya Stark. Bouncing off that, the network has now premiered a series of stills for this Sunday’s episode, and they feature a battle-ready Brienne of Tarth, Cersei flanked by her reticent giant The Mountain, and Varys and Tyrion walking the streets of Essos.
What’s more, with season 6 fast approaching the finish line, HBO has now confirmed that the finale will be called “The Winds of Winter,” matching the title of George R.R. Martin’s long-gestating novel. It’ll premiere on June 26 and run for an extended 69 minutes, as opposed to falling in the 50-59 minute ballpark like previous episodes.
Next up for Thrones fans, however, is “No One,” and the official logline outlines this sunday’s episode as so: “While Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) weighs his options, Cersei (Lena Headey) answers a request. Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) plans bear fruit. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a new test.”
Look for Game of Thrones season 6 to continue with “No One” on Sunday, June 12. In related news, We Got This Covered recently unearthed a report suggesting a major plot development relating to one Tyrion Lannister, while we’re also hosting a GoT contest to give away a copy of seasons 3 and 4.
