Sunday night’s Game of Thrones is setting up to be the biggest television moment since Neil Armstrong stepped outside the Apollo 11 lunar module and made history by setting foot on the moon.
Everybody’s going to be watching.
The only question that really remains is will ‘The Battle of the Bastards’ have the entire hour dedicated to it, like season four’s phenomenal ‘The Watchers on the Wall,’ or would it have some other subplots in it, like season five’s equally exceptional ‘Hardhome?’
The answer, teased in a British magazine, appears to be the latter. And it’s a big one.
TV & Satellite Week claims that “As Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton do battle in the North, elsewhere in the Seven Kingdoms it’s the female characters who look most likely to rule Westeros as season six comes to a close. This week’s episode sees Yara Greyjoy and her brother Theon finally make it to Meereen where the Ironborn warrior finds an admirer in Daenerys.
Last we left Meereen, it was under attack. Will the show open with Yara’s fleet coming to save Dany, winning her trust and setting up for a trip across the Narrow Sea?
If so, that would just be a delightful little amuse bouche before what’s being teased as the show’s greatest action sequence ever.
Spark those joints, Bros. Spark those joints. It’s gonna be one amazing Sunday evening.
