‘Game of Thrones’ season 6 finale photos hint at comeuppance

The Game of Thrones season 6 finale is coming, and it brings more of the tricky and often dangerous “great game.” The episode also caps off 10 weeks that have gone by all too quickly. With the finale airing Sunday, HBO has just released six new photos that preview upcoming developments. Watch out if you’re not yet up to date: There are spoilers ahead.

Last week’s much-anticipated battle brought justice to the masochistic Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon), but still more characters may have to answer for their actions in episode 10. Others will have to make important decisions and embark on new paths that will steer us into season 7. For every conflict that is resolved, we expect multiple new ones to arise, leaving us in a torturous limbo until season 7 arrives next year.

HBO’s synopsis for episode 10, The Winds of Winter, is as vague as usual, in spite of the fact that the finale will be the series’ longest episode to date. The blurb does, however, indicate that Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) will be in the spotlight: “Season Finale. Cersei faces her trial.”

While the scheming former queen doesn’t appear in any of the new Game of Thrones photos, Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones), who will also be on trial, does. He is shown kneeling at the feet of the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). We’ll see what kind of mercy — if any — he and Cersei get.

Meanwhile, Cersei’s principal incest partner, twin Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), will be busy at the castle of Walder Frey (David Bradley). He is pictured on the journey there with Bronn (Jerome Flynn) as well as enjoying the hospitality of his host. Another photo shows the twins’ brother Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) offering counsel to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), one of their family’s many enemies.

The photos also indicate that we’ll see how Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) fares and how Davos (Liam Cunningham) will react to new insight into Shireen’s death.

The Game of Thrones season 6 finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT. If only the fun didn’t have to end.

Vanderpump Rules season 10 finale live stream: where to watch for free
Three people sit next to each other at a table on Vanderpump Rules.

It's time to address the jaw-dropping affair on Vanderpump Rules. Bravo's reality TV series was set to end its 10th season after episode 14. Then, the affair known as "Scandoval" broke the Internet. In March 2023, TMZ reported that cast members Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix ended their nine-year relationship. The bombshell report stated that Sandoval had allegedly cheated with their co-star, Raquel Leviss, which was later confirmed.

In true reality TV fashion, Bravo sent cameras back into the lives of the cast to capture the action in real time. The network filmed enough of the scandal to make the upcoming 15th episode its season 10 finale. From the footage shown in the trailer, the finale is going to be an explosive episode as America watches the Scandoval unfold.
