HBO has been doing its best to avoid spoilers when it comes to the names and descriptions of its Game of Thrones season six episodes. The descriptions are hilariously vague to avoid tipping people off as to what’s going to happen, and they’ve even gone so far as to only release episode names as the new episodes approach. But now SpoilerTV is reporting they’ve gotten the episode names for the last three shows of the season, and if they’re accurate they confirm a pretty big event that goes down at the end of season six. *Super serious spoiler warning!*
SpoilerTV got their info from a European Sky Network website that revealed the German titles for the shows. Episode eight is “Niemand” (“No One”), episode nine is “Die Schlacht der Bastarde” (“The Battle of the Bastards”), and episode ten is “Die Winde des Winters” (“The Winds of Winter”).
The episode title that sticks out the most to us is “The Battle of the Bastards”, because it basically confirms that the war between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton that’s been brewing through the first five episodes of season six will explode in episode nine. Not that huge of a surprise considering the footage of Northern armies clashing we’ve been seeing since season six trailers started appearing, but still!
Past season six show names have been much less forthcoming, with titles like episode three (“Oathbreaker”) and episode four (“Book of the Stranger”). Episode five (“The Door”) becomes obvious after viewing, but we no longer need much imagination to guess what’s going down in episode nine. Oh, spoilers. Why can’t I quit you?
