New 'Game of Thrones' season 6 photos hint at reunions, new plans, and more

Another week, another fresh dose of Game of Thrones to look forward to. In preparation for Sunday’s episode, The Broken Man, HBO has released six new photos of the drama to unfold. If you’re not caught up, be warned: Spoilers are coming.

After a week of plans that went off the rails, we can expect interesting consequences. The new photos offer a glimpse at the aftermath as characters are forced to regroup. Expect danger, reunions, and more scheming.

The latest photos fill in some of the blanks left by HBO’s vague outline of what to expect in episode 7, provided by its (brief) official synopsis:

The High Sparrow eyes another target. Jaime confronts a hero. Arya makes a plan. The North is reminded.

With the High Sparrow (played by Jonathan Pryce) coming out on top of the Lannisters (at least for now), he is apparently ready to set his sights elsewhere. Meanwhile, though, the photos show Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in the wake of being outmaneuvered. Now that Jaime is no longer part of the Kings guard, he’s set to face Blackfish Tully (Clive Russell) as part of the army. The newly returned character is also shown in the images.

Meanwhile, a new plan is necessary for Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) after she opted not to kill Lady Jane Crane (Essie Davis). The Waif has been given the green light to kill her, so she needs to find a way to stay alive. Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), on the other hand, got a break last Sunday. She was released from prison and is shown getting a warm welcome.

Last but not least, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) are shown meeting with Robett Glover (Tim McInnerny). It looks like they’re trying to gain support in the North.

We’ll see it all go down when Game of Thrones season 6, episode 7 airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Where to watch Selling Sunset season 6
A group of women and men gather around a table in Selling Sunet.

A new era is upon the dazzling real estate brokers of the Oppenheim Group as they return for more drama, hijinks, and luxurious homes in Netflix's Selling Sunset season 6. The team will look to move past the breakup of agent Chrishell Stause and boss Jason Oppenheim. In a clip for season 6, Stause elects to call her recent transgressions an "awakening," not a midlife crisis.

Alongside Stause and Oppenheim, agents returning for season 6 include Emma Hernan, Heather Rae El Moussa, Mary Fitzgerald, Chelsea Lazkani, and Amanza Smith. Two new agents join the fold: Nicole Young and Bre Tiesi. Davina Potratz will make a few appearances throughout the upcoming season.

House of the Dragon season 2: Everything we know so far
Alicent and Rhaenyra clutch each other in House of the Dragon.

While it may not be coming this year, long-time Game of Thrones fans are already eagerly anticipating the return of House of the Dragon. The show became a genuine phenomenon in its first season, which told the story of the friendship between Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower as it soured into what would eventually become an all-out civil war.
HBO renewed the show for a second season almost as soon as the first season began airing, and we already know plenty about where the show will be headed when it returns.
This post does not contain any spoilers for the show’s second season, but it is informed by Fire & Blood, the Targaryen history by George R.R. Martin that the series is adapted from, and will obviously continue to focus on the conflict between Rhaenyra and her younger half-brother Aegon as they battle for control of the Iron Throne.

What will happen in season 2 of House of the Dragon?
House Of The Dragon | Official Teaser | HBO Max
Without delving into spoilers, the second season of the show is expected to pick up soon after the first season left off. Fans of the show will likely recall that that season ended with Aemond Targaryen’s dragon inadvertently attacking and killing Rhaenyra’s son Lucerys and his dragon. Lucerys’s death is what ultimately brings what had been a simmering conflict closer to a boil, and leads to a much greater level of death and destruction.
We also know, thanks to an interview with one of the show’s writers, that a moment known to fans as Blood and Cheese will be included on the show. The exact details of that moment are best left to the imagination, but suffice it to say that it’s a moment likely to leave many fans talking.
