Game of Thrones has been tight-fisted with the information this year, unsurprisingly with the show going beyond the books. HBO has even withheld episode titles until the last possible moment- but thankfully they’re trickling out finally and today we have two more titles to add to the list!
According to the official HBO schedule, the newly revealed titles are:
Season 6, Episode 6: “Blood of My Blood”
The sixth episode (airing Sunday, May 29th) will be directed by Jack Bender, his second episode after this season’s fifth episode “The Door.” HBO is showing a runtime of 52 minutes. “Blood of my blood” is a phrase used by the Dothraki among the khal (or in our case, the khaleesi) and their bloodriders. This title certain points to a Daenerys-and-Dothraki-centered episode.
Season 6, Episode 7: “The Broken Man”
The seventh episode of the season (airing June 5th) is being directed by Mark Mylod (who will also be covering the eighth). It has a runtime of only 51 minutes, but a title that will excite many readers of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. There is a well-known and loved speech from the novels that centers around broken men. Can we expect to see Ian McShane as Meribald and this speech in this episode? It seems very likely!
Well, readers, what do you think?
