Now barrelling down on the halfway point, Game of Thrones season 6 is truly beginning to kick into high gear, after delivering a stellar one-two punch across “Book of the Stranger” and last Sunday’s heart-wrenching “The Door.”
But there’s no rest for the wicked, and HBO’s latest batch of stills check in on Westeros’ leading players, all the while sparking a confrontation on the streets of King’s Landing. Building on the Lannister war cry from “The Door,” this Sunday’s “Blood of My Blood” will finally see Jamie square off with Jonathan Pryce’s power-mongering High Sparrow – a face-off that could impact the fate of Natalie Dormer’s imprisoned Margaery.
There’s also a shot of Arya in the crowded streets of Braavos, where our pint-sized heroine will seemingly face a “difficult choice,” while the Mother of Dragons, fresh from liberating a clan of Dothraki, is seen on horseback with her trusted ally and love interest, Daario Naharis.
Here’s the logline for HBO’s upcoming episode, teeing up the appearance of Sam’s ruthless father, Randyll Tarly:
“An old foe comes back into the picture. Gilly (Hannah Murray) meets Sam’s (John Bradley) family. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a difficult choice. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) faces off against the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce).”
Game of Thrones season 6 continues on Sunday, May 29 with the premiere of “The Door.” The only question now is, will you be tuning in?
