Game of thrones review season 6 episode 3-He is alive, Jon Snow is alive! Ser Davos enters the room to witness Jon’s returning to life. At the same moment Melisandre enters and cannot believe her eyes- she succeeded.
Melisandre asks about the other side, what did Jon see on the other side when he was dead. Jon remembers that they killed him, he remembers who killed him but about the other side-nothing, there was absolute darkness and nothing.
Jon is aware that he failed, he did what he thought it was right but the others didn’t agree with him. Jon followed his instincts and that cost him his life. Now he walks again among his brothers of the Night’s Watch and they look at him as some kind of god because he returned from the dead.
In episode 3 of Game of thrones season 6 we finally catch up with Sam and Gilly. They are travelling on a ship and Sam admits to Gilly that he is taking Gilly and her baby to his parents’ house.
Afterwards, we see again one of Bran’s visions with his father. Now, young Ned Stark is at the Tower of Joy where his teenager sister is being held. Ned with his five friends have a spectacular fight with the two knights who are watching the tower.
Bran remembers this fight from the stories of his father- the famous Ser Arthur Dayne, who was a legend in Westeros, was defeated by Ned Stark. But did he really? As he continues watching the fight, Bran realizes that his father’s stories were a lie.
We see how Ned is losing the fight when wounded Howland Reed rises to stab Dayne in the back. That is the moment when Ned is able to kill him. Not very honorable kill but the choice was made so that he can save his sister.
Ned takes the stairs to the tower when he stops the moment Bran calls him. Ned turns but he sees nothing so he continues the stairs. Bran wishes to follow his father and see what will happen in that tower. We all want to know, of course.
Unfortunately for Bran and for us, they return from this warging and leave us empty-handed and wanting for more of these flash backs. The Three-Eyed Raven warns Bran not to remain too long in this visions, he still has a lot to learn how to become the Three-Eyed Raven.
After the long journey and various insults, Daenerys is finally brought to Vaes Dothrak and the Temple of the Dosh Khaleen. Her clothes are stripped and she is being dressed with more appropriate clothes. An elder priestess questions why Daenerys didn’t come after Drogo’s death.
In her defense, Daenerys states that she does not belong to the temple of the Dosh Khaleen, but she is surprised to learn that now the khals can decide about her fate.
Meanwhile, in King’s Landing, Qyburn takes care over Varys’ “Little Birds” so they serve Qyburn now. Cersei enters his laboratory and demands from Qyburn to inform her about every whisper about her family and she explains how she will demand trial by combat where Ser Gregor will be her unbeatable champion.
Now this would be an exciting scene since the Mountain has been transformed into a very powerful creature with the help of Qyburn. I wonder who will dare to fight against him in this trial by combat, if it ever happens.
While some struggle with their enemies, Arya has a struggle with her identity. Being blind and tempted by the nameless ones, she constantly tries to persuade them and herself that she is truly no one. She has been retaken to the House of Black and White and now the Faceless Man gives her a second chance.
With a little hesitation, Arya drinks the water from the fountain. Miraculously, her sight is back and she has truly become no one.
On the other side of the world, up in Winterfell, a lord has come home. Smalljon Umber presents a gift to Ramsay Bolton- Osha and Rickon Stark. Finally, after two seasons of Game of thrones we see what happened to Rickon.
Smalljon presents the head of Rockon’s direwolf as a proof of their identity. And isn’t this nice? Ramsay has full power now- he is the official defender of the North and he has a valuable hostage. Beware Jon Snow, Ramsay is coming.
Further North, at Castle Black, Jon goes in the courtyard where the mutineers who killed him are waiting to be hanged. Jon asks them for their final words and then hangs them. After seeing their dead faces, Jon hangs over his Lord Commander’s cloak to Edd, giving him the command of the castle.
Jon’s watch has ended. Now wait, what? No, Jon, you can’t give up now! You have so much work left, what about Ramsay, what about the White Walkers? How can they defend the Wall without you? You can’t be serious about this.
