Amid all the blood and nudity, ‘Game of Thrones’ gave us a little romance to root for this season. The last two episodes of Season 6 found Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) making eyes at Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) when she arrived at Castle Black. Though Episode 4 director Daniel Sackheim thought Tormund’s flirtatious glances subtle, they quickly set the internet on fire. There were Brienne and Tormund memes, there were montage videos; it was the beginning of a beautiful warrior relationship (at least if fans had their way).

In this week’s ‘Recapping the Realm,’ we’re joined by two critics to discuss ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘Oathbreaker.’

It seems almost silly to discuss Sunday’s Game of Thrones without pointing toward the inevitable obvious, that the character everyone thought would come back to life … came back to life. Viewers perhaps weren’t expecting the twist quite so soon, but now it seems the erstwhile corpse of Jon Snow may put in more time with Season 6 than any prior year.

Look, there’s no easy way around it: the Game of Thrones thing we’ve all known was going to happen finally happened at the climax of Sunday’s “Home,” returning a fan-favorite.
