It will help watch some scenes so prudently, you will able to grasp all the intricacies of this latest GOT episode.
Jon Snow Has Returned!
First and foremost, the most exciting part of Game of Thrones season 6 episode 2 is that Jon Snow has returned from the dead. Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) coming back to life is not a news as the previous episode had already revealed it in the climax. If you don’t know about this epic ending scene, then you must first watch Game of Thrones season 6 episode 2 online. There couldn’t be any better resurrection scene in the GoT universe than this!
While people now know how Jon Snow came back to life, they aren’t privy to the reason why he is back. But, the “Oathbreaker” episode has given us a bit of an insight to his future on Game of Thrones. Viewers are now interested to know if Jon Snow is back as himself or as someone else. The episode cleared that query out as we could see Snow behaving as usual, more or less.
Will Jon Snow Seek Revenge?
It’s strange, but for now, Jon Snow is not hunting his murders. In last night’s episode, Snow addressed the members of Night’s Watch. While he did not reveal if he still remains their Lord Commander, he certainly did not show pity. Even though some members’ faces were filled with remorse, Snow hasn’t shown any signs of forgiving.
The GoT viewers are also curious if the makers and George R. R. Martin have put forth Jon Snow is a “Holy” figure. Will his resurrection make him a supernatural warrior? We are still unaware if Snow has come back with some powers, but we do feel he will soon have a lot of followers.
Who Broke the Oath?
The “Oathbreaker” is all about Jon Snow disbanding from the Night’s Watch. In the episode, Snow ends his oath by saying, “My watch has ended.” It reveals that Snow will move away from the clan and head out on his own. It’s still uncertain where Jon Snow could be going, but there won’t be any “back-stabbers” like these. The episode showed him leaving the Night’s Watch and also the holds of Melissandre (Carice van Houten). Even though he came back to life with the help of the Red Woman’s dark magic, there’s something totally different brewing inside Snow’s head.
On the other side of the GoT world, there was more politics conquering the minds of the sane. Cersei (Lena Headey) has now designed a gruesome plot to return to power and rule King’s Landing. We doubt if it will help her as it could possible be her end. Unlike Snow, everyone would be glad to see Cersei get killed in her own schemes.
In Meeren, Varys (Conleth Hill) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) keep things running as they were without any mess. They still haven’t been exposed for releasing Khaleesi’s (Emilia Clarke) dragons from her chains. And, there hasn’t been any new input to the Tyrion-Lannister-is-Targaryen theory.
That sums up the highlights of Game of Thrones season 6 episode 2, “Oathbreaker,” recap, but make sure you watch the entire episode by streaming it online on HBO NOW.
