SPOILER WARNING: This article is packed with spoilers for Season 6, Episode 9 "Battle Of The Bastards," and some predictions for Episode 10 "The Winds Of Winter."
Game Of Thrones is going to be hard pressed to beat last night's "Battle Of The Bastards" in terms of incredible fighting sequences and seeing our heroes dole out justice, but it looks like it's going to try. Check out the preview for next week's Season 6 finale of Game Of Thrones, then keep scrolling for a trailer breakdown.
Watch the whole preview now:
What exactly is Cersei's trial for? Way back in the finale of Season 5, she made her brutal walk of atonement after confessing to adultery with Lancel Lannister. She still denied the charges of regicide and incest, and now she'll have to stand trial in "The Winds Of Winter."
With Tommen being basically brain-washed by the High Sparrow, and having outlawed trial by combat, it doesn't seem that Cersei stands a chance. However, her trial will require all the Sparrows to assemble in one place, and would be the perfect opportunity to unleash some of that wildfire that's been in storage since Season 2.
Something Might Come Between Jon And Sansa
...and that something is probably Littlefinger.
You would think that Jon and Sansa would have never felt stronger as a team, what with Sansa having just totally saved Jon's ass in the Bastard Bowl and both of them being safely seated at Winterfell once more.But then again, why didn't Sansa just tell Jon that she had written to LIttlefinger? And why didn't Jon listen to Sansa in the first place when she told him not to underestimate Ramsay?
While we might have had a rare dose of catharsis watching Jon beat Ramsay to a pulp and Sansa let the dogs chew his face off, there's undoubtedly more struggling ahead. If they continue to butt heads instead of work together, it would provide the perfect opportunity for someone to drive a wedge between them — someone like skeevy old Littlefinger, who is 100% about to make a move on Sansa.
'The Freys And The Lannisters Send Their Regards'
Given the monstrosity that took place at the Red Wedding, it seems safe to say that nobody should want the Freys to send their regards, ever.
In Episode 8 "No One," we heard Jaime Lannister make Edmure Tully — Robb Stark's uncle and the groom at that particular killing spree — a deal: Help the Lannisters take Riverrun, and be reunited with his son and wife. Now it's time for Jaime to hold up his end of the bargain.
The Freys and the Lannisters cementing their alliance further proves Jon Snow's point to Sansa: They have soooo many enemies. Just because the Battle of the Bastards is behind us doesn't mean that anyone at Winterfell is safe.
Mercy For Melisandre?
Since resurrecting Jon Snow and eating a big helping of humble pie following Stannis's death, Melisandre has been relatively inoffensive throughout Season 6. But now that Davos knows what she did to Princess Shireen and barks at Melisandre to tell Jon Snow the truth, the Red Priestess is looking mighty ashamed. Will her remorse be enough to earn her mercy? Does she even deserve mercy? It's up to Jon Snow...
We are definitely in the great game now...
