Game of Thrones Season 6: Episode 3 saw Bran learn more about his father's past, Daenerys enter a new home, and an unexpected departure from the Night's Watch. Read on as executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss talk us through "Oathbreaker"
The latest Game of Thrones episode saw Bran and the Three Eyed Raven standing at the foot of the much talked about Tower of Joy. They looked on as a band of riders, which includes Ned Stark, gallop towards the Tower ready to fight two Kingsguards, and rescue Ned's sister Lyanna. D.B. Weiss emphasised his joy on exploring Bran's plotline as he explained in the below video: "One of the best things about being able to go back with Bran, and look at the past is to be able to see the discrepancy between the received history, the things that everybody knows about the things that happened and what actually happened." David Benioff pointed out that Bran may be feeling deceived by his father, whom he always thought of being the true winner of this fight, he said: "Every kid who grows up in Westeros, they all hear about this legendary sword fight that took place 20 years ago and as far as Bran knew, it's just his father that beat this legendary guy." This look into the past will undoubtedly leave Bran wondering as to what other stories his father may have altered.
We come to Daenerys just as she enters the Dosh Khaleen, to live out her days with the rest of the widows of previous Khals. D.B. Weiss spoke about the High Priestess who greeted her by revealing: "The High Priestess of the Dosh Khaleen is not coming at it from the perspective of someone who is looking to punish this young person with inflated ideas of her own greatness, I think she remembers what it was like to think that a glorious destiny awaited her and to find out that wasn't the case." This could mean that if Ser Jorah and Daario Naharis do save her, she may be able to use the High Priestess as an ally. Before the release of Game of Thrones Season 6, Emilia Clarke teased what will happen to Dany, and we're sure that she won't be staying with the widows for much longer.
At the end of Episode 2, viewers were delighted to see Jon Snow come back to life with the help of Melisandre, after being stabbed by members of the Night's Watch (not sure if you remember it, but it caused quite the stir). Speaking about Jon's first moments in his revived state, Benioff stressed the grandeur of the scene by saying: "We're talking about the idea that you do lose something and that you're forever changed, not in a supernatural way I mean he's still Jon but he's been dead, that is a haunting experience because if that is really what's beyond and what's beyond is nothing, it's just the terror of knowing that." After his shocking exit from Castle Black, we hope Jon finds what he's looking for. Check out the new Game of Thrones Season 6: Episode 4 trailer, where it seems that Cersei could save Margery. What did you think of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' insights on "Oathbreaker"?
