Varys is in Dorne. However, when Daenerys sets sail for Westeros, Varys is with her. He could not have made it so quickly from Westeros to the Slaver's Bay. Except we only see him on the ship; it's probable he met up with the fleet off the coast of Dorne, which is on the way from Meereen to King's Landing. See more »

Back to Back Two Great Episodes
26 June 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Wao…What an ending of this season!! I want more episodes right now. Every characters now just few steps behind to fulfill their dreams. What will happen in the next season!! How can I again wait for one year!

Back to back two best episodes at the last of this season. Miguel Sapochnik is a great director of television series. All his last three episodes 'The Gift', 'Hardhome' & 'Battle of Bastards' are become epic. Today again he gives us the best ever ending last episode of a season. Every character has a twist. Yes, Game of Thrones is not the best but also the great TV serial ever made in history. It is hard to wait to get next episode for one year. But we can manage as it is said that patience is a bitter plant but bears sweet fruits.
