Daenerys Season 6 Game of Thrones

On June 28th Game of Thrones Season 6 has come to an end, and it was not easy to get over it. After some days we did: we have to accept that we have to wait one year to watch new episodes. In this article we decided to sump up the five most curious things about Season 6, because the North remembers, and so do Game of Thrones fans.

Beware! The article contains:

Battle of the Bastards: behind the scenes

How was the best battle in the season, even in the series, shooted? You could see from the episode’s title: Battle of the Bastards, 6×09, would talk about the epic clash between the two bastards Jon Snow (Stark) and Ramsey Snow (Bolton), so that only one could dominate on Winterfell. The whole episode referred to this scene, which made every fan very enthusiast, and finally saw The Starks dominate again on Winterfall. But what there is behind? A lot of historical battle quotations, and astonishing special effects. In a YouTube video released by HBO, you can see the battle genesis:

Has winter really come?

The last episode of Season 6, 6×10, was titled The Winds of Winter. It could only mean one thing: winter has come. After that Ned Stark started saying this six years ago, Sansa and Jon finally received the news about the coming of winter, announced by the white crows. So, after six seasons of a long summer, winter is (really) coming, and so is coming the risk of Strangers taking over the Wall. Is this maybe the actual threat, rather than Daenerys coming with the ships from south?

Light of the Seven

In the last episode you could also listen the best song in six seasons: Light of the Seven. A ten-minutes long instrumental song that drove through the plot resolution in King’s Landing: the trial to Loras, the Temple explosion by Cersei, King Tommen’s suicide, Jamie’s coming back, and Cersei’s coronation. You just have to loop-listen this together with the other tracks in the Game of Thrones Season 6 Soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi (it’s track 3).

So R+L=J, is it?

Who read George R. R. Martin’s books suspects this since forever. Who followed the fans theories only waited for final confirmations. It looks like Jon Snow is not Ned Stark’s bastard, but only that Ned promised his sister Lyanna to grow the child, who was betrothed to Robert Baratheon (and then married Cersei, ouch) and Raegar Targaryen’s lover (Daenerys, dead, brother). Are you thinking what we are thinking? Yes, Jon Snow might be Daenery’s cousin. And if you think about Martin’s saga title – A song of Ice and Fire – so Jon is Ice (coming from the North and a former Knight Watch) and Daenerys is fire (with the dragons and everything). Jon has been acclaimed as King of the North, and Daenerys is going towards King’s Landing with a fleet of ships.

Emmy’s Nominations: ARYA KIDDING ME?

Even in 2016 Game of Thrones dominated Emmy’s nomination: they were 23, after last year’s record of 24. Beyond usual Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), for the first time Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clark (Daenerys Targaryen) and – the most unexpected – Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) were nominated as well. It is curious how the young actress interpreting Arya found out about her nomination: she was mentioned on Twitter by Game of Thrones official profile congratulating with her.

Emmy Awards will be held on September 18th in Los Angeles. After the 12 awards record in 2015, how many awards is Game of Thrones going to win?

After all these curious things, we are sorry, but we have bad news: it seems that Season 7 will be broadcast later than usual, because of the shootings that will have to take place in winter. After all, winter has come.
