Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 3 Preview: Oathbreaker

53-preview-815905-5_PRO1-1024

“And now it begins.”

“Now it ends.”

The official synopsis:

Daenerys meets her future. Bran meets the past. Tommen confronts the High Sparrow. Arya trains to be No One. Varys finds an answer. Ramsay gets a gift.

Have a look at the official episode photos here.

“Oathbreaker” is the first Game of Thrones episode directed by Daniel Sackheim, and it is written by David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

Cian: The aftermath of various developments from last week’s “Home” will be intriguing to watch unfold and develop. Just like Sebastian Croft did as a young Ned, it looks as though Robert Aramayo nails Sean Bean’s Yorkshire accent as an older Ned in the preview. He looks like a great fit. All signs point to this being another revelatory episode for book readers. We can’t wait for it!

      Shoot just missed it.

      I’m excited for the episode I’m really worried about Ramsey’s gift I am hoping they just caught Theon riding back to the Iron Islands instead of it being the Umbers giving him Rikon.

      That would be because Robert Aramayo is from Yorkshire! (OK Hull not Sheffield, but hey…)

      That would stinks if Theon goes back to Winterfell. This is not compelling TV.
      Huge anti-climax. The man has spent 3 seasons with Ramsay, lol. The character needs something new.

    5. Varys was trying to locate the leader of the Sons of the Harpy in previous episodes, which would be the most obvious interpretation of “Varys finds an answer”. But barring Hizdahir somehow still being alive, there aren’t any Meereenese characters who could serve as a meaningful reveal, unless you buy into the preposterous theories that it’s somebody in Dany’s pre-Meereen entourage.

      We’ve speculated a lot about the meaning of the title. At this point I think it must refer to Jon dealing with the mutineers, not Jon leaving the Watch or whatever else, just because I don’t think that’s likely to happen this week.

    6. Dw3sty,

      You would wish this on Theon? Having to go back after his atonement?? At least

      rickon has SD and the potential for the Umbers to be laying a trap or Jon saving him. Someone mentioned sweet robin (maybe LF involved) as the gift. That makes me sick but I do find it (almost) as believable as Rickon

      .

    7. Sword of the Morning,

      I thought that too. But…

      I think it was the dream that made it sadder. I think he was sad in the books, because it was a dream and he knew well what will follow after this.
      In the dream he knew Dayne was right, that ”now it begins”

      I think we truly have to separate the 2. One is a fever dream, where we have Neds thoughts on the events, old Ned, who know how this entire thing ends and what follows.
      While here Bran sees this just as it happened, no dream, no Ned insight, no one knows what will follow, not even young Ned!

      So I find it quite right/true..? that he is more determined here, that after all this war, all the things he went trough this is where ”it ends”.

      EDIT: Not to contradict you or to say you are wrong! Just bringing a different perspective.

    8. Tommen meeting the HS should be fun to watch since he seems to want to put his big boy pants on. Tower of Joy will be great and I hope the scene is shown in it’s entirety not broken into segments to be drawn out through the rest of the season. All I will be thinking of during the scene is

      the leaked video footage of the guy on the hillside screaing, “get em Beanie get em” fooking hysterical

      Ramsay’s gift? I would rather not speculate because well, it wont be good

        Quote  Reply

    9. When I read the books, it never occurred to me to give a crap even for a minute about what color Dawn was. I was intrigued by the legend of Dayne and how Jaime and Barristan and everyone looked up to him as this ideal knight. I was interested in the person, not the object. So I’ll pass on raging out over swords.

      Is the Sheffield accent the same as Hull? I dunno. England has so many accents in such a small place.

      I think the leader behind the Sons of the Harpy is just going to be Yunkai, represented in the show by Razdal, who we know is going to appear in episode 3 or 4, and again in the finale.

      Agreed.

      Not even sure why people keep suggesting it’s Theon. He’s at the Kingsmoot based on filming spoilers, so it’s definitely not Theon. I mean think for one second people…Euron was just introduced. Theon is not going back to Winterfell. That arc is over.

      The gift will be Rickon. Maisie confirmed yesterday that he’s returning.

    12. RIP Rickon, Osha, Shaggydog (in my opinion)

      I am cautiously excited for the Tower of Joy scene. I don’t really care about the fight itself (and how close it is)…. I care about the twist inside the tower and I hope they nail that!! The important ingredients for the exterior scene are imo: Ned and some companions fight Targaryen Kingsguards, Ned and Howland Reed survive. I don’t care about the mechanics of the fight (if that makes sense).

      type parts in the future? You speculating on

      Rickon

      is one thing but some of us try to avoid the actors’ comments/official spoilers. Not trying to be a jerk or anything.

      Agreed. Dayne’s legend is what I liked. How good he was and how much Jaime admired him.

      He can easly be all those things without Dawn.

      What I would really like to see, is Jaime talking about him a bit.

    16. Mihnea: What I would really like to see, is Jaime talking about him a bit.

      I’d thought about that. It may be a good way to introduce Dayne before we see him in the flashback, right? Jaime, disgusted at having Gregor in the Kinsguard, musing on how great the order once was, with people such as Arthur Dayne.

        Quote  Reply

    24. Che,

      Remember, in the books it was a fever dream, semi-narrated by older Ned. He was remembering the whole memory, through a “sad memory” lens, the grown-up Ned painted his own emotions onto the memory. This Ned seems a little more cocksure and wanting to get into that tower, no matter what. I’m completely on board with that.

        Quote  Reply

    25. I would hate the idea of

      reintroducing Rickon simply to have him offed by Ramsey. And poor Shaggy too. It was bad enough with Lady and Grey Wind. And of course Osha, who was so integral to their well-being and escape, and who loves her “Little Lords” – especially Bran, who is “precious to her”. But such is life in Westeros.

      Yeah, before they were split into East, West, North & South, the combined counties of Yorkshire made up the largest county area in England. In fact, it has a larger population than Scotland and I think the whole thing about The North being the largest of the seven kingdoms in Westeros is probably inspired by that face.

      Especially since the North of England isn’t just Yorkshire, but also Lancashire, Northumberland, Cumbria, Tyne & Wear, Durham, etc.

    31. Luka Nieto,

      I do not remember exactly what was leaked. I know Varys hates magic, but he and Tyrion saw the red priest in Ep 1 preaching for Dany, the one in Volantis last season was doing the same. That may give them the idea to use red priests for their own advantage?

        Quote  Reply

    32. Sword of the Morning,

      I thought the same. But then, the book quote goes like “Now it ends, thought Ned, sadly.” He is sad about the whole thing only after it has happened. But when he was at ToJ, he could not have known that Rhaegar loved Lyanna or that the KG was protecting her. Although Ned tried to be respectful with Arthur Dayne in the book ToJ scene (indirectly suggesting the KG to run away or bend the knee), it is possible that he was aggressive towards the men who held his sister captive.

    33. Sue the Fury,

      I don’t mind either way, but I can clearly see a pale white sword being twirled at 0:23. It’s not some large greatsword like people seem to be expecting but looks like how I pictured Dawn.

      I think the description of Dawn is one of those bits of poetry that make good reading as words on a page. “pale as milkglass, alive with light”. Trying to portray it visually they would not only lose the lyrical power of the words, they would run the risk of it coming off as some type of lightsaber knockoff. (Heck, they’ve already got those GoT/Star Wars t-shirts out there).

      Kind of the same with Ned not saying “now it ends” sadly. It worked in the book but when you’re seeing it play out, you would think someone about to fight for his life and perhaps, as far as he knew the life and freedom of his sister, would have a bit more determination than melancholy. I can see whey they’d go with that choice.

      If I’m not mistaken in the books Ned’s guys were mounted when the fight began. If so, that’s another change I’d be ok with.

      So sure, I’d love to see Dawn but if the creative people decided it couldn’t be done in a solid, believable way without being distracting, I’m ok with that.

    38. Hoyti Von Totiy,

      Stop whining please. All that matters is how good the fight is and what happens inside the tower. Book purists should understand that not everything is or can be translated to the screen and deal with it. Please. It will definitely be an epic scene, let yourself and everyone enjoy it. Peace.

      Maybe Theon arrives at Pyke after the Kingsmoot? I don’t see Euron leaving Theon alive before the Kingsmoot. Not that any Ironborn is going to choose Theon to rule them. The actors playing Roose, Theon and Ramsay were on an unusual number of promo events this year – probably because all three of them will die this season?

    43. Not that it matters but judging by this picture: http://puu.sh/oIvcP/d91f114737.jpg Dayne has 2 swords and only one of them is in his sword sheath, and the one that isn’t looks a lot like Ice which immediately tells show only people that it’s a special sword.
      And you can see him swinging it around in the preview too..

    44. alrite last week I got nothing right …maybe i did I don’t know but let me try again…

      starting with first scene
      1) open with Jon ….He is up ..everyone is back to their places ..He walks right to Davos first I guess he is surprised …then he walks out everyone sees him …commotion in the wall ….Mel tries to know what it was like when he was dead ,,what he saw and all….
      it ends with Jon having to decide what to do with throne and Co. He probably forgives most of them except the ones who stabbed him..probably let’s olly go …( Imagine the rage )

      2) kingslanding next …tommen and high sparrow talk …High sparrow threatens tommen. ..cersei wants to eliminate all the faith militant but they would need help ..Jamie suggests Tyrells but cersei doesn’t trust them so ….We see qyburn and his little birds….and he reveals something big …

      3) we see dany walk part 1 ….and they reach their destination. …

      4) tyrion Is deep in his thoughts ….They seem to have no idea what to do …till varys walks in after finding the answer …tyrion plots his next move

      5) back to wall Jon is also planning ahead …He knows of the threat that’s coming ….We may see sansa reach the wall and meet Jon but I’m not so sure this will happen this episode

      6) then we see arya training this time jaqen teaches a girl more skills by the end …A girl is more trained and ready for the next step

      7) dany part 2 this time we will see her settling to her new lifestyle

      8) probably to iron islands where we will see euron again

      9)kings landing again this time in the small council ….where we just see Kevan and pycelle ….short conversation ….cut to .next scene where it might end with another’s death not sure if it will happen but uncle Kevans appearance in the photos isn’t very good for his health ,,much like balon and doran etc

      10) Ramsey is planning to attack castle black till umbers show up with the GIFT … and Ramsey gets new bright idea

      11) last scene one of the most awaited scene in tv history ..
      bran and blood raven talk and blood raven promises to show bran something awesome ….We go to toj ….I loves little ned ,,,specially the way that kid smiled like Sean bean …This one looks good too,…epic fight ….best sword fight in got ….and it will end before ned opens the door …..ah I know most of what I say will not happen the way I have said it or in the same sequence ,,,,,so what the hell….. it will probably end with promise me ned …….

        Quote  Reply

    45. I think it’s safe to say that after Ramsay gets Rickon he’ll call off the attack on Castle Black and send Jon Snow the “Pink Letter”, which should be this episode. Then next episode will be the big Sansa-Jon reunion… and the Letter arrives, with Sansa confirming Rickon’s alive and them having a renewed purpose for the rest of the season.

      Um, I’m pretty sure Ramsay would flay the shit out of him and that is climactic. But I think it’s Rickon too. Which kind of makes me sick. If they recast Rickon they will need to establish in some way that it is him.

    49. So Aramayo is Ned? I remember when that casting broke thinking he favored Bean. But everyone was saying it was going to be

      Eddie Eyre as Ned. So who’s Eddie Eyre playing? The other KG next to Dayne?

      Can’t wait to see the full scene.
      And hearing Cersei’s line again convinces me that the pic of Qybern and the kiddos will be him acquiring his own “little birds”.
      I really hope Ramsey’s gift isn’t Rickon but it doesn’t look good.
      And I really can’t wait to see the wildlings and NW reactions to Jon walking out of that room.

    52. Major point here! Sean Bean does not have Yorkshire accent. Yorkshire is not a singular accented county.
      Sean is from Sheffield. Same city as Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott & Rick Savage. As was Joe Cocker. Plus that “Is this the way to hammer brillo” guy, Tony Christie. (AND from where I originate.)
      Listen to Mark Addy. He’s from York (City), to north’n Sheffuld (how Sheffield is pronounced locally). (About 55 miles, by road – 60 minutes steady drive.) They don’t sound alike, even though Mark was in ‘The Full Monty”, shot in Sheffield.

      John Bradley is Manchester-born. Lancastrian, in other words. Manchester is, approximately, 40 miles West of Sheffield. Theirs is way different accent too.

    54. Markus Stark,

      They filmed exterior scene in Spain and interior scenes in NI.

    55. Sword of the Morning:
      I had imagined Ned being more somber when he said, “Now it ends.”

      Agreed, and not just in retrospect. At that point Dayne would’ve been bored with standing guard in front of a tower in the middle of nowhere for months, and spoiling for a fight just for some exercise. By contrast, Ned by that point would’ve been war-weary, and also very reluctant to kill a legendary warrior whom he greatly respected and admired. Knowing that there was no other way to ‘save’ his sister would’ve made him sad. He was never one to relish killing.

      But I think that among directors, there is a default way of thinking that having a hero character sound ‘badass’ is the only way to begin a fight scene onscreen. Ned is a more complex character than that, and those who know him best frequently comment on his somber and solemn mien.

    58. Filming spoiler

      The fight at the Tower of Joy was done somewhere in Spain? Director Jack Bender was seen during that periode, that’s why people thought the Tower of Joy would be in episode 5 or 6. But now it seems it will be shown in episode 3, so it was not Jack Bender who filmed or his material has been moved to another episode?

      Are the inside scenes with Lyanna done in Ireland? We did not see who filmed those, did we? So they could be in any episode.

      I do hope we will also see that next sunday, so we can see in the next episodes what it means for Bran and how Jon will learn the truth.

      Leeds and Bradford are different from Halifax and Huddersfield and the Middlesbrough accent is very different often being confused with Mackem (Sunderland) or Geordie (Newcastle).

      Funnily enough I don’t think I have ever heard Faye Marsay in a role where she speaks with her native Loftus ( Cleveland/N Yorks coast) accent – it certainly doesn’t come out as The Waif.

    63. If Rickon is the “Gift” you bet there will be a lot of motivation from Sansa and Jon Snow to get him back. If what was discussed on Reddit is true, man the build up to the bastard bowl is going to be intense. This in itself will cause the Northern war to escalate.

      Prediction:

      Rickon = Gift. Ramsey finds a way not to storm Castle Black.

      Cersei and Jaime have a argument about bringing in the Tyrell’s to finish off High Sparrow/Faith Militant. It’s the beginning of the end of their relationship.

      QB on Cersei’s orders, commands his little birds to do off Kevan/Pycelle

      Tyrion/Varys figure out their threats but don’t have an answer on how to defeat them.

      Moving on, I wasn’t sure how they top the resurrection of Jon Snow. Oh wait, here’s some tower of Joy! The scene I have been waiting five years to see. By the old gods I may leak some pee (spoiler alert). Easily my favorite passage in all the books. I don’t care if it’s 6 on 2 or if “Dawn” will be used. I’m hyped for what this all means. Also, I am naming Dayne’s second sword “Dusk” if he’s dual wielding. From “Dawn” to “Dusk” Arthur Dayne is a badass. *mic drop*

      In the brief clip we’ve seen, I would categorize Ned as sounding more matter of fact, as opposed to “bad ass.” Moreover, I think the fact what we read is Ned reflecting back does make a huge difference.

      In the moment, it seems to me Ned’s main thought would be rescuing his sister. Perhaps he doesn’t like the thought of having to fight Kingsguard, given his respect for them, nevertheless, he thinks his sister has been kidnapped, in other words, taken against her will. Reflecting back, if all the fan theories are correct, and I’m guessing they are, Ned knows Lyanna was not taken against her will. Had he had that piece of information at the time the fight took place, it would likely have turned out much differently. Perhaps there wouldn’t have even been a fight. So, in the moment, he’s doing what he thinks he has to do to rescue his sister, whether he likes it, or not. In retrospect, he likely sees the fight and resulting deaths could possibly have been avoided altogether.

      Just my take.

    66. The preview shows the Wildling’s and the what’s left of the Night’s Watch looking at someone as they walk through the crowd. I’m wondering if it’s Sansa, Pod and Brienne that they’re looking at. Not Snow. I don’t doubt that will happen as well, but I am hoping they finally get to Castle Black this week and don’t continue to drag it out.

      And I have no doubt of a Stark reunion this week. We need more hope!

    67. Lyanna_Targaryen,

      Nah, I disagree. Ned has always been melancholic, he is the quiet wolf after all, so how its described in the books when he says, “and now it ends” is exactly how I think it was. He was sad, because he had to fight Ser Arthur Dayne, and I think he was sad because he expected to lose. He would have lost too, if it wasn’t for Howland Reed. Who probably poisoned Dayne in the books, but in the show will probably just pretend to be dead and then get up and stab Dayne when he’s not looking.

      As far as Dawn goes, of course people are going to be upset over the prop dept. not using the greatest sword in the 7 kingdoms in the fight scene. The sword is thousands of years old and likely has an important role to play in the War of the Winter, the Second Long Night. People have spent 20 years reading a series that still has two more books to go, so they have a lot of built up expectations going into this, and a lot different elements they’d like to see incorporated into a TV show about their favorite book series. I’m not going to rage, but I’m not going to pretend to be ok with it either. I’m disappointed, but I’m disappointed with a lot of the things the show has chosen to leave out, and happy with others. However, most book readers are smart enough to realize that any book to film adaptation is going to have a lot of compromise for the sake of run time, expense, etc. But if you’re going around saying you didn’t give a crap about Dawn in the books, lol, what kind of fantasy fan are you? That’s like saying you didn’t care about Narsil/Anduril in the Lord of the Rings. Magic swords, magic armor, and other magical items are almost like characters themselves and add a lot of depth and history to a story, especially an epic fantasy story. So while I won’t rage, I’ll forgive those who do.

      Not going to enter the entire Ned debate. I think it makes perfect sense for the man to be determined and resolute, when he wants to save his sister, who he thinks was kidnaped and raped.

      Yeah. I’m betting 10 bucks we never see Dawn ever in the books.

      It’s a fan ”theory” that again the fandom elevated to truth. In the end it, like all others it will be proven to be fake.

      And I’m confident no poison was used by Reed. He was fighting 7 guys, of course he would turn his back to someone eventually, it just happened to be Reed.

    69. So many questions for this episode! I feel like I have far less of a handle on Oathbreaker than I did on Home.

      1.) What will the “new” Jon be like? How will death and betrayal have changed him? What is he going to do with the Night’s Watch mutineers? I’m so excited to see all the reactions at Castle Black!

      2.) We have no confirmation that Sansa and Brienne are in this episode. Do they reach Castle Black this episode or are they indeed taking the week off? If Brienne isn’t in this episode, that’s more evidence that the titular Oathbreaker is or has something to do with Jon.

      3.) Is the Tower of Joy going to be shown in full, or broken up into multiple episodes? I very much am hoping for the former, and that we get the coveted R+L=J this weekend.

      4.) Varys’ answer must be who the Harpy is, and I’m thinking it will be Razdal of Yunkai. Not a huge revelation for the audience, but is a character most will recognize, and sets up a conflict inside Meereen and between city states.

      5.) Ramsay will get Rickon as a gift from the Umbers. I’m about as sure of that as I can be without actual confirmation. I don’t think this means he will kill Rickon immediately, but I’m thinking, if it is Rickon, there’s no way we don’t get roasted Rickon for Bastardbowl…

      I say now that the NERDRAGE over ToJ details will entertain me, but I’m pretty sure before all is said and done, it will end up pissing me off.

      In addition, both of them are only credited/listed as being in one episode so we may very well get the entire ToJ scene including interior with Lyanna. Now I know IMDB is not always 100% accurate and they may just not have info on other episodes that Howland Reed (if they split the scene) will show up in but at the very least its something we can speculate about!

      Ned went to the tower with several companions, so even if Ned could be trusted to keep the secret and take care of the kid, there was no telling if his companions were just as trustworthy.

      They established Bran can’t be in a vision for too long in “The Red Woman” for a reason. The pic of Bloodraven with his hand on Bran’s shoulder with Bran looking up is most definitely BR taking him out of the ToJ vision after the fight portion.

      Um, I’m pretty sure Ramsay would flay the shit out of him and that is climactic. But I think it’s Rickon too. Which kind of makes me sick. If they recast Rickon they will need to establish in some way that it is him.

      All they have to do is have Smalljon Umber say “I have a gift for you. Rickon Stark.” All he has to do is say his name to reestablish him.

      Maybe Theon arrives at Pyke after the Kingsmoot? I don’t see Euron leaving Theon alive before the Kingsmoot. Not that any Ironborn is going to choose Theon to rule them. The actors playing Roose, Theon and Ramsay were on an unusual number of promo events this year – probably because all three of them will die this season?

      PS: Not adding spoiler tag because this is speculation, not spoiler

      Euron doesn’t know Theon is alive, so why/how would he have him killed before he gets back to Pyle for the KM?

    77. Why do people think Rickon was recast? In the show all the kids with Tully genes are big: Sansa, Bran and Rickon. Those with the stark genes are small: Jon and Arya. Seems logical to me, no need to recast people.

      I think it’s safe to say that after Ramsay gets Rickon he’ll call off the attack on Castle Black and send Jon Snow the “Pink Letter”, which should be this episode. Then next episode will be the big Sansa-Jon reunion… and the Letter arrives, with Sansa confirming Rickon’s alive and them having a renewed purpose for the rest of the season.

      Yup, that’s pretty much how I see things going down too. While I can’t wait to see Jon & Sansa together and kicking ass, it pains me to think what awaits Rickon while he’s in Ramsay’s “care”.

      Awesome, as always!

      I’m very happy that Roose Bolton got the Beautiful Death poster. I wouldn’t have necessarily objected to Balon being featured, because I’m sure that Robert Ball could have crafted something amazing based on his fall from the bridge during the storm. But Roose was a far more important character, and Michael McElhatton was a series regular. I’m glad he got the honors.

      I love the way that the strands of blood falling from his hands look like the strings of a violin. It’s very reminiscent of the Beautiful Death poster for “The Rains of Castamere” in that way, which is fitting considering that Robb’s death and Roose’s death proved to be eerily similar.

      But she certainly might be tasked with killing Dany. And that mission would bring a whole boatload of tension with it. We know she wouldn’t kill John or Sansa. But Dany? >>YIKES<<

    85. Flayed Potatoes,

      I think if Balon had gotten the poster, the quote probably would have been “I am the storm”. But I agree it would have been fun to see. The cinematic nature of his death would have provided a lot of creative possibilities for the art to explore.

      Honestly, I wish that Robert Ball could make several Beautiful Death posters for the episodes that feature more than one significant death. But at the rate that we’re burning through characters in Season 6, that extra workload would probably kill him, and he’d need a poster of his own. 😉 But if we’re only going to get one tribute per episode, then I’m glad that Roose got this one.

      Except in the books Howland is a little crannogman, who are notorious for coating their weapons with poison, but it’s not a big deal to me either way. The way Howland interferes on the show doesn’t matter as much to me as the fact that they actually show him saving Ned’s life. It will probably work better for the show honestly. But I think you’re looking for ways to be offended by “purists” so when someone offers a comparison between book and show, show fanboys are the one’s who actually default into rage mode at any possible criticism and project your own emotion onto someone else’s benign comment, which my comment was, since I neither expressed satisfaction nor dissatisfaction with the potential difference. I was just suggesting what difference might exist.

    111. For myself, I am only interested in seeing R+L=J finally confirmed. I never have seen the Tower of Joy as somehow “epic.” Dayne almost certainly was nothing more than another very skilled warrior: but like the “great athletes of yesteryear,” he has been mythologized as something from “good old days” that (like our “good old days”) probably never existed.

      I don’t recall ever paying his sword any thought: although I do dimly remember people years and years ago positing that this was actually Azor Ahai’s sword. I am not sure why people thought that: I seem to recall others debunking most of the “evidence” as imagined by fans. But I never really got involved in those discussions.

      At any rate, an attempt to make this fight somehow “epic” (whatever that even means) probably would be disastrous. What they need to do is show skilled fighters going at it hard, and two of them surviving. It should not be overlong: for example, it should not be as long as Oberyn vs. the Mountain. Remember, this is all set up for what we need to see: Ned learning some shattering truth that is going to haunt him for the rest of his life. Unless this is a total cockup by GRRM, Bran is going to learn something that is going to hugely affect how one of the main characters perceives him/herself, and that is going to have big ramifications down the road. If that somehow gets drowned out in “epicness,” then the whole thing will be a waste of time.

If it is important to the overall story as told by the SHOW, then they will distinguish it in some way (just like Oathkeeper); if it isn’t important to the story as told on the SHOW, then it won’t matter. It doesn’t have to look like a rainbow colored unicorn horn to convey that it is “special.” I won’t use the term “magic” since there isn’t really magic in this world–there is only power.

      I’ve wondered what would be a good future for Brienne. Mayhaps Brienne and Tormund at Tarth.

      Dunno? Maybe the HBO snipers, or maybe he didn’t mean to (we’ve all hit a wrong button before). No worries either way.

      I’m new to being active on Twitter and not just lurking. I’m still learning!

      Wimsey,

      A white sword and star on purple I think. But how would we see it anyway? Arthur would be the first physical Dayne that we see. His brother, sisters, and nephew haven’t been seen or mentioned. His father was written down in the White Book but that’s about it.

      Come to think of it, the sigil might have been in that book as well.

      A white sword and falling star on a lavender/ lilac purple background

      or if you prefer

      “Purpure, a blazing star bendways surmounted by a sword bendways sinister argent”

      Major point here! Sean Bean does not have Yorkshire accent. Yorkshire is not a singular accented county.
      Sean is from Sheffield. Same city as Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott & Rick Savage. As was Joe Cocker. Plus that “Is this the way to hammer brillo” guy, Tony Christie. (AND from where I originate.)
      Listen to Mark Addy. He’s from York (City), to north’n Sheffuld (how Sheffield is pronounced locally). (About 55 miles, by road – 60 minutes steady drive.) They don’t sound alike, even though Mark was in ‘The Full Monty”, shot in Sheffield.

      John Bradley is Manchester-born. Lancastrian, in other words. Manchester is, approximately, 40 miles West of Sheffield. Theirs is way different accent too.

      This doesn’t come as a surprise to me. I’m from the Netherlands. Within an hour, you can go from Rotterdam, pass the Hague (and Leiden for that matter) and reach Amsterdam. Four very, very distinct accents. And that’s not even taking into account several of the accent that hail from the southern and eastern provinces and the different language up in Friesland. All in a country that’s just a bit more then twice the size of greater Yorkshire.

      Again?!

    126. Sue the Fury,

      Being from Yorkshire I can confirm that the Hull and Sheffield accents are different, but not so dissimilar to prevent you from adopting the other accent, especially for an actor. In addition if you’re not from Yorkshire they may sound alike. To give you an idea “The Ridings” of Yorkshire is the largest county in England, covering approximately 5th – 6th of England.

      Thanks Sue, I have no problem following filming news and discussing what is posted here. I do want to have some suspense when I watch the episode. Knowing what is going to happen takes the enjoyment out of watching the show, IMHO.

      ME too. I always thought if it more like in a disappointed and sad kind of tone. Like I respect and even fear the great knight you are, but my sister is in there and I’m coming through

      As long as it is not as crap as the Dorne fighting sequences. Gawds, that did damage to my trust in the shows ability to deliver the battle scenes.

      And a lot of wee bairns kissed by fire….

      Sword of the Morning: I had imagined Ned being more somber when he said, “Now it ends.”

      He was in his dream. Dreams are only poorly connected to actual memories, and even in literature, they are heavily tainted by how people feel about things subsequently. However, we also know that Ned as a man who is very conflicted about compromises that he made. What he did with surety and perhaps even gusto in his youth is now (or was then) something upon which he looked back with reluctance and sadness. And if Ned learned what many of us suspect that he learned, well, that would make sense.

    132. I just noticed something, the Kingsguard who is not dual wielding

      is lying dead on the ground in this promo at the 28 second mark. If that was supposed to be Arthur Dayne as some hope for whatever reason, he doesn’t seem to be that good if he got taken out this early in the fight. (I know my observation means nothing since nearly all of them die anyway but hey, just thought I’d point it out)

      Mihnea,

      Maybe he does have Dawn, because the guy with two swords seems likely to be Gerald Hightower to me

      It is ser Arthur who says that line in the books. And I think ser Gerold was older than the other two, probably in his 40s.

    134. Well, just as long as they make it clear which one of them is Prince Imrahil this time, then I am sure that the fans will be happy.
