The trailer for Game of Thrones Season 6 episode 8 released by HBO only served to whet the appetite of fans some more as it promises the best scenes for this season yet. The title of the next episode is called “No One” and shows Cersei’s trial as she faces off with cousin Lancel.
In the Game of Thrones Season 6 episode 8 trailer, Lancel can be seen telling Cersei to stand down, or in his own words, “there will be violence.” However, she is in no mood to back down as she tells him, “I choose violence.”
Of course, it helps that Cersei has The Mountain by her side who could easily thwart any threat from the High Sparrow’s faithful militants, at least based on the trailer, noted Mirror. But Jaime wants to be there to help Cersei during the trial by combat. The only question is whether he will arrive on time.
According to the analysis for Game of Thrones Season 6 episode 8 from The Independent, the upcoming offering may be Arya-centric.
“One can only hope this episode marks the end of her seemingly perpetual stick training, finally giving her the chance to leave Braavos,” it said.
Meanwhile, in other Game of Thrones Season 6 episode 8 spoilers, The Telegraph noted that Margaery has not stopped playing a dangerous game of deception just yet in order to bolster House Tyrell.
Fans may remember Margaery giving the indication about following the High Sparrow, and even urging her brother Loras to do the same. But it may just be a ruse after giving her grandmother a photo of a rose, which everybody knows is the symbol of the Tyrell family.
This new strategy is starkly different from the plan of revenge by Cersei. Margaery’s mother-in-law is determined to reduce the High Sparrow and his minions to dust for humiliating her in public in the Walk of Shame in episode 10 of last season’s Game of Thrones.
It’s not clear at this point what strategy King Tommen will support: is it going to be one of deception or a full-blown war? The Game of Thrones Season 6, episode 8 trailer obviously gave no hint as to his mindset.
Episode 8 will air on Sunday on HBO. Watch out for more Game of Thrones season 6 spoilers which will be published here as soon as they are available.
