…and I suspect that Winter won’t be far behind it.
Now there aren’t many shows that have me literally counting down until it starts again, the date of Monday 25th April emblazoned on my brain. But Game of Thrones will do that to you, won’t it? It will be simulcast with the US at 2am on Sky Atlantic and then repeated at 9pm. Plus the Catch Up episode will be available from around 3am. And if you’ve yet to get into this, seasons 1-5 are available on NOW TV, so you can still catch up!
Season 5 has left me with a lot of questions. Will Arya see again? Is Bran still in that tree (did we even see him in season 5? He’s been there for a while!)? Did Sansa and Theon make the jump? Where is Khaleesi now and will the Dothrakis harm her? How will Cersei react to that horrendous walk of shame? Will Jaime turn round and avenge Myrcella’s death? How will Tyrion get on running Meereen? – I’m thinking he’ll be good, I do love Tyrion. Is Winter finally coming?
And of course, is Jon Snow really dead? I fear that he is. I am not yet over this.
I actually raged at the end of Season 5 over Jon’s stabbing. It made me livid. Always the sign of brilliant TV when you get that emotionally involved with it all, I think. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one raging over that one either.
I watch Game of Thrones on NOW TV, and leading up to season 6, NOW TV is giving fans a chance to find out their own Game of Thrones fate with… #GoTFate. Have you spotted this one on Twitter yet? It’s fun to do, you just tweet @NOWTV with the hashtag #GoTFate to be tweeted back with an animated #GoTFate video – do check it out. If you then share it, you’ll be entered into a prize draw, and one lucky winner will head off to Belfast for a special Game of Thrones experience on set, courtesy of Winterfell Tours, including an exclusive archery experience on set, direwolves encounter, a visit to 20 key film locations and much more. How utterly fabulous is that???! I think I’d explode with excitement!
It would be amazing to visit the locations, which has got me thinking about where I’d most like to see. Winterfell and The Wall, I think. My favourite character is Tyrion, though I’d say I’d have to be House Stark overall. Arya has been feisty from the start and the things that Sansa has gone through, it’s amazing that she’s still fighting. And I guess we’ll have to wait and see what Bran’s been up to…
Will you be watching?
