Game Of Thrones 6.9

Magnificent. Not just visually, but also in terms of emotional power.

  • The episode belonged to Sansa and Daenerys. Both had powerful character-defining moments. And Yara had a great scene, too. Sansa has been transformed this season. Finally, she’s someone we can root for.
  • The writers clever show that Jon is far from the leader he needs to be, moving forward.
  • Shireen’s storyline made a surprising (and welcome) return to the fore, as Davos found somethat clued him in to her final fate. Excellent. Will enjoy waiting for that storyline to come to fruition. Next episode/season?
  • Fantastic performance from Iwan Rheon. As ever.
