Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues.
It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’
Season 6 sees the Three-Eyed Raven accompanying Bran Stark into the past, to a Winterfell in the height of summer. A divided Night's Watch is left in turmoil after a bloody Jon Snow is found lying under a sign that reads “Traitor”. Having survived their leap from the Winterfell wall, Theon Greyjoy and Sansa flee through the woods, hoping to leave behind the nightmarish Ramsay Bolton. Meanwhile with Daenerys isolated in Essos, Tyrion Lannister and Varys must use all their cunning to maintain control of Meereen as the former Masters look to regain control.
An original series based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series.
Few shows on television look better than this one, but it's coming up on great-drama retirement age. Game of Thrones is getting older. But it's not dead, yet. – Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly
Game of Thrones is finally off book, having lapped George R.R. Martin's slowly gestating A Song of Ice and Fire series. Finally, it seemed, anything could happen. – Willa Paskin, Slate
Yes, it's true that all men must die… but for the time being we won't miss one gloriously brutal moment of this series. – Robert Rorke, New York Post
