As a fan of the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones, I have been eagerly waiting for the sixth season to premiere on HBO. The show has been known for its unpredictable twists, shocking deaths, and stunning visuals. Based on the books by George R.R. Martin, the show has also deviated from the source material in some ways, creating new possibilities and challenges for the characters. Here are some of the things I hope to see in the upcoming season:
The return of Jon Snow. The season five finale left us with a cliffhanger: Jon Snow, the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, was stabbed by his own men in a mutiny. Many fans refuse to believe that he is truly dead, and there have been hints that he might be resurrected by Melisandre, the Red Priestess. I hope that Jon will come back to life and lead the fight against the White Walkers, who are the biggest threat to Westeros.
The rise of Daenerys Targaryen. Daenerys, the Mother of Dragons, has been struggling to rule Meereen, a city she liberated from slavery. She faced rebellions, assassinations, and betrayals from her enemies and allies alike. In the last episode, she was captured by a horde of Dothraki warriors, who might not be friendly to her. I hope that Daenerys will escape from them and reunite with her dragons, who are her greatest weapons. I also hope that she will finally sail to Westeros and claim her rightful throne.
The revenge of Arya Stark. Arya, the youngest daughter of Ned Stark, has been training to become a faceless assassin in Braavos. She learned how to change her appearance, fight with a sword, and kill without mercy. However, she disobeyed the rules of the Faceless Men by killing someone on her personal list of enemies: Meryn Trant, a knight who killed her sword instructor. As a punishment, she was blinded by Jaqen H'ghar, her mentor. I hope that Arya will regain her sight and continue her quest for vengeance against those who wronged her family.
The downfall of Cersei Lannister. Cersei, the Queen Mother of Westeros, has been one of the most ruthless and cunning characters on the show. She has schemed and plotted to secure her power and protect her children. However, she made a fatal mistake by arming the Faith Militant, a fanatical religious group led by the High Sparrow. They arrested her and put her on trial for various crimes, including incest and murder. She was forced to walk naked through the streets of King's Landing as a public humiliation. I hope that Cersei will face justice for her sins and lose everything she holds dear.
The reunion of Sansa Stark and Bran Stark. Sansa and Bran are two of the surviving children of Ned Stark, who have not seen each other since season one. Sansa has been through a lot of trauma and abuse at the hands of Joffrey Baratheon, Ramsay Bolton, and Littlefinger. She escaped from Winterfell with Theon Greyjoy, but their fate is uncertain. Bran has been learning how to become a warg and a greenseer from the Three-Eyed Raven, a mysterious figure who lives beyond the Wall. He can see visions of the past and future through weirwood trees. I hope that Sansa and Bran will find each other and help each other heal from their wounds.
These are just some of the things I wish to see in season six of Game of Thrones. Of course, I know that the show might surprise me with something completely different or unexpected. That's part of what makes it so exciting and addictive. I can't wait to watch it and find out what happens next. aa16f39245
