|"Bran, this will begin to make things right."|
My initial misgivings about watching Game of Thrones Season 6 have totally vaporized in the heat of Melisandre’s fires.
Not knowing the details of what’s to come made watching these two new episodes so much more exciting than I thought would be possible. During episode 2, Home, last night I was literally jumping a few times. And I’m telling myself, don’t worry, you read the first three books ten times each and loved it every time, it isn’t that crucial to be unspoiled before The Winds of Winter is published in 2019.
So now I feel free to enjoy the TV series, and yeah, it became a very different experience for me, stepping into the post-Dance world. Although there are bits going all the way back to A Storm of Swords…and even further back. Lots of surprises, then, excitement, shock, and also a few moments where I’m like, /facepalm.
Let’s delve into The Red Woman (okay that sounds weird) first, and then Home.
