In episode “Home,” season 6 of “Game of Thrones,” the cheers across the globe must have been deafening when Jon Snow (Kit Harington) gasped for air and sat up on the table. Jon Snow is back from the dead. Maybe Melisandre (Carice van Houten) isn’t so bad after all? It was unbearable imagining “Game of Thrones” without his shiny black locks, manicured woolly beard and boyish brown eyes. Jon Snow is too beautiful to die. Yet even in death, Jon Snow was still gorgeous.
After many members of the Stark family were slaughtered, it’s nice to see the remaining Starks fight back against their enemies. It’s time for Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to stop letting people bully her around. The best thing that has ever happened to Sansa is Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) pledging her loyalty. If anyone can break Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) in half, it’s Brienne, but let’s hope it is Sansa. She’s earned the right.
A close second to Sansa’s right for revenge against Ramsey is Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen). Theon has suffered like no other on “Game of Thrones” at the hands of Ramsey. It’s incredible he gathered his sanity and Sansa to get away from Dreadfort. Ramsey makes Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) look like Prince Charming. Hopefully soon, Ramsey will get his painful comeuppance.
Thank goodness, there’s hope for Arya Stark (Maisie Williams). Is there such a thing as a medieval ninja? Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is back with her first husband’s people, but this time around she’s not a naïve girl. The Queen and Mother of Dragons doesn’t play second place to anyone. Meanwhile, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is honing his dragon whispering skills. That could come in handy in the future.
Ah, let’s not forget the best part about season six of “Game of Thrones.” Jon. Snow. Jon Snow. Jon Snow. Jon Snow the Beautiful is back and the “Game of Thrones” never looked better.
