April 26: So the day every Game of Thrones fan has been waiting for, has finally come. Today is the day that all the your most burning questions are going to be answered. The biggest of all- Is Jon Snow dead or will he come back? Well, that is one thing that the first episode of the latest Season 6 of this wildly popular series is going to disappoint you in. Sorry people, but we don’t know yet, if Jon Snow is dead or not. But what we do know for sure is that a storm is raging in Castle Black and Jon Snow’s adversaries are not going to get out of it, easily.Also Read - House Of The Dragon Teaser Out: Game of Thrones Spin-Off Is All About Fire, Dragons, Blood
What about the other Starks? Well, as you know Sansa escaped the hell that was her life with Ramsay Bolton, ever since he married her. We also knew that Sansa has Theon Grejoy a.k.a. Reek along side her. Now, they are escaping away from the Bolton castle, but with Ramsay’s bloodhounds following them, close on their heels. They do get caught eventually, only to be rescued by a strong ally. Who is this saviour that Sansa and Theon owe their lives to? You will have to watch the episode yourselves to know!

What about Arya Stark? As we all know, the feisty Stark girl had lost her eyesight in the Hall of Faces, after she had angered the Many Faced God. So now Arya begs on the streets of Daavos and she has to pass an extremely difficult test to be able to get back into the good books of the Many Faced God. Maybe she will be given her eyesight back then? Moving on to the east coast of Westeros, to the capital of the Seven Kingdoms and the seat of the Iron Throne- King’s Landing.

All is not well in King’s Landing as Queen Mother Cersei Lannister might have escaped the horror of the dungeons and the Walk of Shame, but is not able to keep it together when she gets to know about her daughter’s death. She is heart broken to see her brother/lover Jamie return from Dorne, with the body of her only girl child Myrcella Baratheon, covered in a shroud.
For the uninitiated, Myrcella is the daughter born out of the incestual relations between Cersei and Jamie. Speaking of Dorne, something really unexpected is cooking in this Kingdom of adventurers (HINT: The Grim Reaper’s come knocking at the House Martell’s door!). What will become of them now? You will have to watch the show yourself to know!
Coming to the Mother of the dragons, Daenerys Targaryen- well she is still captive with the ruthless Dothraki tribe. The Khal or the King of the tribe wanted to bed her, but after coming to know that Daenerys is none other than Khal Drogo’s widow, he spares her. But wait, she still hasn’t escaped everything that can go wrong with her. As she will learn later, the Dothraki have a special place for the Khal’s widows and that is where Daenerys will have to spend the rest of her living days.

Finally, coming to the Red Priestess or Lady Melisandre. Something has changed about her in this season. She is not as hopeful and as confident about the impending victory of the House Baratheon, as she used to be ( she has no other choice though- what with Stannous killed in the woods after he killed his own daughter and his wife committed suicide). But something seems to be odd about her from the start. She is shown silent and brooding in the entire show and the mystery only unfolds itself, right at the end. Again, you will have to watch the episode to know what is her big secret.
What we were disappointed about the most in this episode (after of course Jon Snow’s death mystery being still intact), was that there was no sign of Bran Stark. As the earlier seasons have shown, he is expected to play a big part in the show and in the Season trailers and teasers, he was shown standing on his own two feet! But for now, this is all that conspired in the very first episode of your most favourite show. Until next time- Valar Morghulis!
