Latest ‘Game of Thrones’ photos reveal a growing conflict, a target, and more

If you’re still reeling from the shocking developments of the latest Game of Thrones episode, you’re not alone, but the time to move forward has come. HBO has released six new photos from episode 6, Blood of My Blood, which will usher us into the second half of season 6. If you’re not up to date on the series, watch out: Spoilers lie ahead.

Not surprisingly, the new batch of photos show still more conflict ahead. They offer glimpses of confrontations to come, an important decision to be made, and a possible walk of shame. Through them, we see hints of what may develop in the upcoming episode for nine characters.

The images go nicely with HBO’s synopsis, which previews multiple plot lines:

An old foe comes back into the picture. Gilly (Hannah Murray) meets Sam’s (John Bradley) family. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a difficult choice. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) faces off against the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce).

Arya’s “difficult choice” clearly refers to deciding whether or not she’ll kill her target: Lady Jane (Essie Davis). The would-be victim is pictured looking very much alive but not overly happy. Arya, on the other hand, seems to be unusually happy — she doesn’t appear to be suffering a moral dilemma. In fact, as she stands in a grim-countenanced group, she is all smiles.

The face-off between Jamie and the High Sparrow is included in the images as well, and it is clear that we should expect a big clash in King’s Landing. Jaime, sporting a furrowed brow, sits atop a white horse (symbolism, anyone?) in one photo, while in another, the High Sparrow stands tall as Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and Septa Unella (Hannah Waddingham) wait behind him. Signs point to a possible walk of shame, especially given that Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman) seems so upset in another image.

Meanwhile, though not mentioned in the synopsis, Daario and Daenerys seem to be sitting pretty. Now at the head of a Dothraki army, they’re shown on horseback.

The twists and turns continue when Game of Thrones season 6, episode 6 airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
