Where we left off
Season 6 of Game of Thrones ended with Daenerys Targaryen leading a vast armada to Westeros. Her army included the Unsullied, the Dothraki, Yara and Theon Greyjoy, the Martells and the Tyrells. Tyrion Lannister is now her Hand. As for Cersei Lannister, she rose to power after blowing up her enemies, including several Tyrells and the High Septon. She now sits on the Iron Throne – but by the looks of the trailer, her happiness won’t last long.
Meanwhile, Sansa and Jon Snow are at Winterfell. Snow was made King of the North. We also found out that he’s actually the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. Ramsay was killed by his own hounds. Arya ended season 6 by slitting Walder Frey’s throat. Bran escaped a White Walker attack thanks to his friends’ sacrifices, especially Hodor.
