Game of Thrones Season 6: Episodes 8, 9 and 10's cryptic titles do not bode well for the people of Westeros

Quelle surprise - there's trouble ahead for our dear Westerosians (Westerosines? Westerosanes?). Check out the titles for Episodes 8, 9 and 10 below. The White Walkers are coming

Game of Thrones Season 6 is hurtling towards its conclusion at a startling rate of knots; there are just four episodes remaining before that hellish ten month wait begins all over again. Episode 7 ("The Broken Man") airs on HBO on June 5, but up till now we didn't know the names of Episodes 8, 9 and 10. Courtesy of Sky Germany, we can share them with you now, but be warned: they do not bode well for our heroic Westerosians. They're also SUPER SPOILERY, so if you don't want us to give the game up quite yet, we recommend you come back later. Episode 608 is called "No One" which can surely refer to just one woman: Arya Stark. We echo The Independent's hopes that this episode will finally see Arya released from the shackles of Braavos, so she can go and join her bastard half-brother Jon Snow in the fight for the North.

On the topic of that great war, Episode 609's title spoils what could be the greatest hour of TV since the Red Wedding. "Battle of Bastards" can mean only one thing: Ramsay Bolton will pit his army against Jon Snow's in the ultimate battle for the North. WHAT AN ENTICING PROSPECT, AMIRITE?! The ninth episode of each and every season of Game of Thrones thus far has proved to be its most gory, with Benioff and Weiss often choosing to focus entirely on one story. But who will be there to fight for / against Jon and Ramsay? And how will Episode 9 lead in to the season finale? "Winds of Winter" will conclude Season 6, and it's widely assumed that the White Walkers will have a HUGE part to play. Perhaps they're steeling themselves for an assault on The Wall? After Bran was Branded (lol) by the Night King in "The Door," will he have a hand in their attack? SO MANY QUESTIONS! How do you predict the remainder of Season 6 panning out?
