The Complete #OPS Guide to Season Six Of Game Of Thrones
I talk about music, television, and films on this blog. The shows that I recap are Mr. Robot, Halt and Catch Fire, Game of Thrones, and Vinyl (now canceled). At the end of every season, I try to put out a comprehensive guide to the writing I have done on each particular show.
Season Six of Game of Thrones has gone the way of Red Priestesses, Hodor's, and Dragons. But, if you are binge-watching Season 6 of HBO's most popular show, here is a companion guide to all of the episodes.
Episode One: The Red Woman
Aired On: 4/24/2016
Recap Title: Brienne, Ramsay, and George Lucas Disease
In the recap, I explained my "George Lucas Disease" theory about Benioff and Weiss, complained about the assassination of Doran Martell, and wondered why Tyrion and Varys wandered Meereen without guards. Read the recap by clicking HERE.
Episode Two: Home
Aired On: 5/1/2016
Recap Title: The Good, The Jar-Jar's, and the Power of Size
In this recap, I mentioned why it is good to be physically strong or big on GoT and reflect on how we all really already knew that Jon Snow would live despite HBO's best attempts to keep the secret. You can read the recap HERE.
Episode Three: Oathbreaker
Aired On: 5/8/2016
Recap Title: Oathbreaker or Loophole
In this recap, I explain the rules of becoming a brother of the Night's Watch and explain why I am dumbfounded by the sloppiness around the writing of Ramsay Bolton's character. You can read that recap HERE.
Episode Four: Book Of The Stranger
Aired On: 5/15/2016
Recap Title: Love Is In The Air (in Westeros)
In this recap, I joke around about Brienne and Tormund Giantsbane while complaining about the Knights of the Vale just sitting around the North after Littlefinger's offer of aid is dismissed by Sansa. You can read that recap HERE.
Episode Five: The Door
Aired On: 5/22/2016
Part One - George R.R. Martin Has Jokes (or RIP Hodor)
Part Two - Plays Within Plays, Prophecies, and Holding Doors
Very proud of the recap of this episode. I go into great detail about the time-paradox around what happens with Hodor and Bran, make fun of the Iron Islands subplot, and talk about the play within a play.

And the recap of part two HERE.
Episode Six: Blood Of My Blood
Aired On: 5/29/2016
Recap Title: King Sparrows, Lost & Found Crows, & Drogon the Dragon

Episode Seven: The Broken Man
Aired On: 6/5/2016
Recap Title: "The Broken Man" or Broken Men?

Aired On: 6/19/2016
Recap Title: Daenerys, Dragons, and Sansa (Not the Battle of the Bastards) Win #GoT S6 EP9
In this recap, I explain why I am the only person in the world that hated the Batlle of the Bastards (as usual, because B&W). Click HERE for that recap.
Episode Ten: The Winds Of Winter
Aired On: 6/26/2016
Recap Title: Winds Of Winter, Or How I Learned To Love Benioff and Weiss
In this recap, I acknowledge how hard it must be to turn George R. R. Martin's books into a television show and complement Benioff and Weiss on some great work in the season finale. In other words, I try to finally make peace with seasons 5 & 6. Find that recap by clicking HERE.
Okay, that is it for now, I am planning on writing one more post but have not gotten around to it yet. When I get it written, I will post it here as well.
