TV show review
Game of Thrones Season Six
They cannot be accused of milking it because every season starts slow and does pick up. The hullabaloo surrounding whether Jon Snow is dead took social media by storm and the makers have just added a bit more drama. The running gag surrounding the series is that it kills off the character the audience had been rooting for. The first episode for season six addresses most storylines in the seven kingdoms and this is the first time that the show’s creators have overtaken the novels written by George R.R. Martin.
The storyline, however, does seem to have the necessary gumption required to take on the unknown. While the Stark sisters, Arya and Sansa, are going through testing times, the other family, the Lannisters, feature the grieving yet plotting brother-sister duo of Jamie and Cersei. There is also the small matter of their little brother, the royal-imp Tyrion, who is stuck in Meereen, waiting for a caught-up Danerys to return to her throne. The cake, baker and bakery, however, go to the ending sequence, which features Carice Van Houten’s character Melisandre in her obligatory topless shot, and a transition to her real self, a hunched hag with more years in her bank than many. Questions so far: Is she a witch or a prophet and is her mojo going to bring Snow back to life?
