Report: ‘Game of Thrones’ Brings ‘Winds of Winter’ to Final Season 6 Episode Titles
It’s hard to believe we’re more than halfway through the sixth season of Game of Thrones, given all its colossal buildup, but like any season, the wars to come will hit a fever pitch in the final hours. So it is, that reportedly leaked episode titles for Season 6's final three outings tease a big moment for Arya, an even bigger battle, and a title George R.R. Martin can be proud of.
Take this with a grain of salt for now, but the German Sky Atlantic website apparently leaked titles for the eighth, ninth and tenth episodes of the season, airing June 12, 19 and 26. Mark Mylod directs the eighth hour, with “Hardhome” helmer Miguel Sapochnik tackling the final two. With a bit of translating work, the episodes read:
6.08 - Niemand (No One)
6.09 - Die Schlacht der Bastarde (The Battle of the Bastards)
6.10 - Die Winde des Winters (The Winds of Winter)
Certainly “No One” could be tethered to an important episode for Arya, perhaps finally coming to a decision on her time with the Faceless Men, but it’s the following week’s “Battle of the Bastards” that really gives us pause. We know the largest battle of the series will arrive in the ninth hour, though “Battle of the Bastards” was first reported as a joke title for production, less so an actual episode name.
And hey, what do you know? HBO really did put “The Winds of Winter” out there before George R.R. Martin.
