Did You Know?


For the first time in the show, the Night King is referred to by name. The show runners previously referred to him in making-of featurettes and in the HBO viewers guide, usually in the possessive as the Night's King as he is similarly referred to in the novels. See more »


Jon points at the map, citing that there are also "the Mormonts, Cerwyns, Glovers, Mazins, and Hornwoods" - yet House Cerwyn is not labeled on the map, even though their lands are south of the Starks. See more »


Lord Varys: [to Kinvara] I suppose it's hard for a fanatic to admit a mistake. Isn't that the whole point of being a fanatic? You're always right. Everything it the Lord's will.

A door that is a must open
24 March 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Came to 'Game of Thrones' fairly late in the game and due to being so busy the binge-watching was gradual. Have found myself truly loving the show, very quickly becoming one of my favourites. It totally lives up to the hype and not only does it do the brilliant source material justice (a rarity in television) it is on its own merits one of the finest, most addictive and consistently compelling shows in recent years and quality-wise it puts a lot of films in recent years to shame.

Feel the same way with "The Door" as with "Home" and "Book of the Stranger". "The Door" is one of the best episodes of Season 6, which settled much quicker and more consistently than Season 5 generally, and a standout of the latter seasons, an episode that has everything that makes 'Game of Thrones' as great as it is and what it's all about. It is one of the most acclaimed episodes of the season, have also seen fans and critics cite it as one of the best 'Game of Thrones' episodes, and can totally see why on all counts.

'Game of Thrones', even in the lesser episodes, has at least one great or more scene. "The Door" has passion, sensitivity, thrills and emotion throughout, but there are parts that are especially good. The action with the White Walkers is spectacularly exciting but it is the emotional parts that register most. Daenerys and Jorah's scene is very heartfelt, but the one that brought me to tears the most was the devastating climax and Hodor's revelation.

All the performances as always are great across the board. Kristian Naim (in a heart-breaking performance), Max Von Sydow and Emilia Clarke are the standouts.

Visually, "The Door" looks amazing, as one would expect for 'Game of Thrones'. The scenery is throughout spectacular, the sets are hugely atmospheric and beautiful on the eyes with a real meticulous eye for detail and the costumes suit the characters to a tee. The make-up is beautifully done. As well the cinematography and editing, which are cinematic quality as well.

One cannot talk about "The Door" without mentioning the thematically, orchestrally and atmospherically multi-layered music scoring and the unforgettable main theme. Again, worthy of a high-budget fantasy/action/drama film. The end scoring is especially powerful.

The writing is thought-provoking and very rich in layers with plenty of passion and sensitivity. The characters continue to be interesting and memorable, while the pacing and direction are tight and there is the sense that things are moving forward.

Altogether, one of Season 6's and 'Game of Thrones' best. 10/10 Bethany Cox
