'Game of Thrones' Season 6 to get a fitting finale with 'The Winds of Winter'
After the heroic penultimate episode 'The Battle of The Bastards' where the Starks defeated Ramsay Bolton, viewers' excitement levels have risen to new heights as the show producers recently revealed the finale will be the longest episode in the series history.
The season started with a bang – Jon Snow's revival, Daenerys seizing control over the Dothraki yet again, Arya in the House of Black and White learning some cool assassination skills, Bran taking audiences through a journey back in time when Lyanna Stark lived and Ned Stark was a young lad, Sansa escaping Ramsay's cruel reign, The Hound's resurrection, Benjen Stark's appearance and so much more!
Now with Sansa Stark and Jon Snow having defeated Ramsay, Rickon Stark and Hodor dead, Daenerys back to Mereen and under the aid of Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister and Loras Tyrell's trial up and coming, Petyr Baelish showing up to save the Starks in the Battle of the Bastards, unfinished conversations between Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth, Game of Thrones Season 6 has whetted the appetite of fans all the more!
Speaking of all the action and thrill packed in the finale episode, director of episode 9 'Battle of the Bastards' and now the finale episode, 'The Winds of Winter', Miguel Sapochnik said, "It feels equally as epic as episode 9... but for completely different reasons."
Everything changed with the previous episode of Game of Thrones 'The Battle of the Bastards'. Best of all, Sansa was proclaimed a hero after being brutalized and tormented for all the previous seasons and Sophie Turner who plays the role of Sansa expressed that she deserved her first kill! Sophie said, "It's amazing. It's Sansa's first kill and it's such a strong moment for her because all her life she's been affected by these men who have just done such terrible things to her. She's always carried it with her and this is the first moment you hear her say this dialogue ‘Your words will disappear. Your name will disappear. All memory of you will disappear.'"
With the finale billed to be the biggest yet, fans are hoping that the ample time that the series will take, will be utilized to tie all the loose ends and set the scene for the premiere of the next big season! Whatever happened to Dorne? And the Tyrells and the Greyjoys?
Tune-in to the season finale as this epic show reaches its much awaited end this Tuesday, June 28th at 10 PM on Star World Premiere HD.
