Game of Thrones


“Jon Snow is dead.” Those are the first words in HBO’s summary for the Season 6 premiere The Red Woman, but many fans are still skeptical fan favourite Kit Harington is history. Among other anticipate­d plot lines, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj CosterWald­au) has to break the news to sister/ lover Cersei (Lena Headey) that their daughter, Myrcella, is dead and help her move to quash the Faith Militant’s theocratic coup in King’s Landing.

After five seasons on the frigid Bering Sea, the new special episode Digging Deep looks back over past episodes to recap some of the recurring characters and ongoing storylines, such as the triumphs and struggles experience­d by members of the Pomrenke family, the star-crossed romance of Emily and Zeke, the apparently chronic conflicts Vernon has faced with members of his crew and the almost daily chaos that comes with being one of the Fightin’ Kellys. (Discovery)


In a new episode called Useful Occupation­s and Deceptions, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) finds solace and purpose in her healing skills as Jamie (Sam Heughan) becomes swept up in complicate­d political machinatio­ns. They engage Fergus (Romann Berrux), a young pickpocket, to assist them in their schemes. But as their plan to stop the Battle of Culloden progresses, their shared past threatens to derail their efforts to move forward. (Showcase)


A lot goes on for Henry (Tim Daly), on both the personal and profession­al fronts, in the new episode Connection Lost. He attends couples therapy with Elizabeth (Tea Leoni), conducted by her usual counsellor (returning guest star Marsha Mason). However, that has to be fit in around his mission from President Dalton (Keith Carradine) to go to Islamabad with Jane and Jose (Jill Hennessy, Carlos Gomez) and terminate the world’s most dangerous terrorist.
