‘Game Of Thrones’, Sansa Transformed, Dany Was Betrayed, Boltons Take The North In ‘The Mountain And The Viper’, Highlight Hollywood News

HBO released exciting new still from “The Mountain the Viper” on Sunday night. Last night’s epic battle between the Red Viper and the Mountain was the obvious shocker of the night. However, a great deal more happened on the HBO hit drama “Game of Thrones,” as Arya got the final laugh, Sansa Stark is know the Lady of Eyrie, The Hound felt crushed, Dany faced her worst nightmare and Roose Bolton with the help of Reek and his son Ramsay Snow, now Bolton, took control of the North.  But his day is coming! Winter is Coming!

The Red Viper (Pedro Pascal) was brilliant in his combat with The Mountain (Hafthor Julius Bjornsson).”You raped my sister. You murdered her. You killed her children. Say it now and we can make this quick,” he tells Gregor Clegane at the beginning of their battle.  And Prince Oberyn’s fate is a brutal blow to Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), whose head could be on the chopping block any day now



Pascal studied Wushu for his role, and it shows in Obyern’s moves. He toys with The Mountain, the most feared warrior in Westeros, striking what appears to be a fatal blow.  Oberyn demands to know who gave The Mountain his orders and points at Tywin (Charles Dance) accusingly. And then they both were killed!

Last season we watched in horror at the Red Wedding carnage which changed the balance of power in the North forever.  In the North on Sunday night, Theon (Alfie Allen) betrays his father’s men into a false peace, with Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon) flaying them alive. Ramsay is rewarded for his victory by becoming Roose Bolton’s (Michael McElhatton) heir. Ramsay Snow is no more. Say hello to Ramsay Bolton. Our question: Is Ramsay really as loyal to his father as he appears? He seems to genuinely want Roose’s praise, but we could also see him killing his father down the road now that he is heir.



At the Eyrie Sophie Turner gives her best Sansa performance ever, stepping up and playing the game like she never has. She convinces the Vale nobility of Littlefinger’s innocence, essentially betting on the man she knows rather than the strangers she doesn’t.




Back in Sansa’s chambers, Baelish is as creepy as ever, asking if Sansa truly thinks she knows him. “I know what you want,” she tells him – in a scene that implies the two either slept together, or may someday. The next time we see Sansa, her costume has changed to something much sexier. She has moved from pawn to player in the game of thrones.



Baelish also has plans for young Robin Arryn, whom he says needs to learn how to rule.   Meanwhile, Arya (Maisie Williams) and The Hound (Rory McCann) make their way to the Eyrie, only to learn that once again they’ve arrived just after one of Arya’s family members has died. Arya’s response? Disbelieving laughter.



We didn’t get a Sansa/Arya reunion, but can only hope it will happen before the end of the season.



In the East, Barristan Selmy (Ian McElhinney) learns Jorah (Iain Glen) was once a spy for King Robert. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) promptly banishes him back to King’s Landing despite his pleas.



And Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) expresses his love for Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) – essentially saying the whole Unsullied thing has been worth it because it’s led him to her. Daenerys establishes that it’s unclear if Unsullied soldiers are missing both “The pillar and the stones” – so never say never for these two lovebirds.
