Game of Thrones Season 6 hasn’t picked up from a major Dorne shocker in the premiere, but as the release of George R.R. Martin’s latest Winds of Winter chapter reminds us, fans far prefer the nuanced storyline of the books to the show’s stunted adaptation. So much so, in fact, that some cheeky fans have raised over $20,000 (of $20 million) to “fix” the Dorne storyline by filming their own version.

We’re well-enough into Game of Thrones Season 6 that some of the initial twists (and almost-twists) have passed us by, but that won’t stop “Book of the Stranger” from staging some climactic reunions. Not only are the Greyjoys converging in first photos, but Jorah and Daario aren’t looking too far from the former Mereeen queen either …
Debate rages as to how far Game of Thrones Season 6 will veer away from George R.R. Martin’s literary Song of Ice and Fire, but few would argue that HBO has taken more liberties than with Dorne, following a tremendous shift in the premiere. And while we wait for Martin’s Winds of Winter, the author takes us back to the real Dorne with a new chapter, and an update on the release.
What is ‘Game of Thrones’ without fan theories? Now that the show is heading in completely unknown territory for both book and show fans, theorizing is more vital (and more exciting) than ever. After just three episodes into Season 6, there’s plenty left up to speculation. From a crazy theory about Bran and the Mad King to one about the return of a long-unseen character, here are the best theories to come out of Sunday night’s episode ‘Oathbreaker.’
In this week’s ‘Recapping the Realm,’ we’re joined by two critics to discuss ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘Oathbreaker.’
‘Game of Thrones’ makes an “Oathbreaker” of the resurrected Jon Snow, but does the famed Tower of Joy finally drop the other shoe? What other major major returns and incremental boosts populated this week? Find out in our full review!
By now you’re well-aware of the big twist on last week’s episode of Game of Thrones — thanks to tabloid reports and transparent deflections and flat-out lies from cast and crew alike, Jon Snow’s revival was probably the worst-kept secret in recent TV history. Still, fans had to sit through two of the most painful hours of the series before we finally got to what we all knew was coming. It’s okay, SNL feels your pain.
Even as the direwolf’s out of the bag with regard to Jon Snow, Game of Thrones Season 6 isn’t about to lift its veil of secrecy just yet. Cue the latest maddeningly cryptic synopses, previewing May 15's “Book of the Stranger” and May 22 outing “The Door.” Wild speculation awaits!
HBO has yet to firm up exactly how much more Game of Thrones lies beyond Season 6, though the series has nonetheless begun to contract, bringing back numerous fan-favorites and tying off past stories. The world of Westeros may get even smaller soon, as Maisie Williams herself confirms another notable Northern return to the series.
Even amid the anticipated return that capped off Sunday’s Game of Thrones, there remain plenty of unanswered questions for viewers and book readers alike. Now, Kit Harington may have debunked one major theory about Jon Snow’s revival on the HBO side, but will the same prove true of George R.R. Martin’s Winds of Winter?
