HBO‘s Game of Thrones: Season 6, Episode 1 title as well as its plot synopsis and the official cast listing for this season have been released. Episode 1 of Game of Thrones: Season 6 is entitled ‘The Red Woman.’ For that title is easy to guess what the subject matter will be, regardless of the synopsis of the episode that HBO released today.

I really, really wish author George R.R. Martin had pulled off a miracle and The Winds of Winter was released before this season but it didn’t happen. Seeing a few major plot-lines spoiled by the TV incarnation will not be pleasant but that is the situation. I am happy that the show is returning soon and is high quality.

Game of Thrones: Season 6 synopsis

Following the shocking developments at the conclusion of season five, including Jon Snow’s bloody fate at the hands of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys’ near-demise at the fighting pits of Meereen, and Cersei’s public humiliation in the streets of King’s Landing, survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates. Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the balance of power in the east, west, north and south.
