Last night’s season 6 finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones is being hailed as one of the strongest so far, and it’s not difficult to see why. There was the usual death and destruction (though at least a few of the characters had it coming this time), touching moments between several fan-favourites, Dany and her now impressively bolstered army finally setting sail for Westeros, and one of the biggest, most speculated upon theories was also confirmed: R + L = J.
Well, the “L” part at least. We don’t actually find out for certain if Rhaegar Targaryen is Jon Snow’s father, but it’s assumed that his rape of Lyanna Stark resulted in the current King in the North’s conception. Will this information result in Jon’s claim to the throne being refuted? If Littlefinger finds out he’ll almost certainly attempt to use that knowledge to influence Sansa to turn against her
brother cousin, so let’s hope the young wolf isn’t quite as naive as she used to be.
The featurettes released by HBO today provide a closer look inside this powerful episode, and include interviews with several members of the the cast and crew. Take a look at them below and be sure t0 let us know what you thought about “The Winds of Winter” and what you expect/hope to see when Game of Thrones returns for its seventh season next year.
