Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 5 Spoilers
So, our beloved Whitewalkers finally make their presence felt in the sixth season. The fifth episode provides deep insights into the history of Whitewalkers. It was revealed that the Children of forest created Whitewalkers to protect themselves from the man. Children of forest used to dwell in Whitewalkers until men from Essos started encroaching their land. In order to fight man, Children of forest created Whitewalkers. We still have to wait for future episodes to figure out what went wrong between Whitewalkers and Children of forest.
Now, coming on to Castle Black, Sansa Stark and Jon Snow could be seen discussing their plans to take revenge from Ramsay Bolton. They decide to take help from remaining Houses of North. They also send lady Brienne to seek help from House Tully (just to refresh your memory, their mother Catelyn Stark belongs to House Tully).
In major turn of events, Eulor Greyjoy has been anointed King of Iron Islands and discloses that he will avenge defeat from Westeros by supporting Daenerys. He plans to help Daenerys in reclaiming the Iron Throne. The first decision Eulor takes after being anointed, as King of Iron Islands is to kill his nephew and niece but rather proactively, both of them already flees the island and takes back the fleet of ships with them. It would be interesting to know where will they end up eventually in future episodes.
Finally, Jorah Mormont gets back some due respect from his queen and confesses his love for the queen. He also discloses that he has been plagued by Greyscale and begins to leave her. Daenerys’ heart finally melts and she orders Jorah to find the cure of Greyscale and help her get back the Iron Throne.
This episode also paid homage to many of our beloved characters including Hodor, Bloodraven, and Summer (direwolf of Brandon stark). Bran was looking at the army of knights king when knight king himself got hold of his hand in the dream itself. This led whitewalkers to Brandon and in process of saving bran, Children of forest, Summer, Hodor and Bloodraven had to sacrifice their lives (making this “Hold the Door” fan theory on Hodor true).
