Winter may not be here yet, but the 7th season of Game of Thrones is definitely coming. While the diehard fans are busy solving a million dollar question of how they’d catch up the season premiere at early hours of the morning, we thought of reviewing and going over the previous six seasons and bringing you a recap of each season in just 10 scenes! Starting today, we’ll post a recap of each season every day till the countdown ends.
1) The introductory scene where a corpse of a dead girl resurfaces with electric blue eyes must be forgotten by many, but it certainly stands as an introduction to the army of white walkers, wildings and other creatures beyond The Wall.
2) In the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros is Castle Winterfell, which is ruled by Eddard Stark. King Robert Baratheon of King’s Landing, Eddard's longtime friend, travels to Winterfell, offering the position to him of the ‘King’s Hand’ and also proposing the marriage between his firstborn son Joffrey and Eddard's older daughter Sansa.
3) Twincest was first seen here. How could one forget of Queen Cersei and her twin Jaime’s caught in the act of moment whilst in the tower?
4) The previous scene followed by the one where Bran, the 10-year-old son of Eddard Stark being pushed down from the window of the tower by Jaime Lannister.
5) Jon Snow, Eddard’s bastard is sent to join the brotherhood of the Night’s Watch. They are the protectors of the wall who prevent from white walkers and wildling from entering into the Westeros.
6) Ned’s wife, Catelyn Stark, who has evidence that Lannisters were behind the attempt on Bran’s life, makes an impulsive citizen’s arrest of Tyrion Lannister. This brief scene escalates the conflict; exemplifies the clan-based power structure that defines the show’s world.
7) Visery Targaryen’s death gave us an insight on how ruthless the deaths in the series could get. And boy, did the makers live up to it!
8) Arya Stark manages to escape King's Landing after her Braavos-ian sword master delays the guards sent to arrest her and gets separated from her family.
9) Daenerys lights a funeral pyre where she burns the witch alive alongside Drogo's body and her three dragon eggs, and walks into the flames herself. When the embers die the following morning, Daenerys rises, unharmed, flanked by three newborn dragons.
10) That scene where a vengeful Joffrey decapitates Eddard Stark and makes Sansa and Arya watch their father die.
Stay tuned for Season 2 tomorrow!
