Last week’s episode of Game of Thrones ripped hearts with Hodor’s time-hopping death, but have seen Bran and Meera rescued from White Walkers by a mysterious hooded figure in its season 6 episode 6 ‘Blood of my Blood.’
The episode unveiled the return of character long seen in the series like Uncle Benjen.
‘Blood of My Blood’ represents a turning point for the season itself as it press forward into new territory.
The mysterious saviour appeared to be the Coldhands character from the books and later revealed himself to be Bran’s uncle Benjen Stark, the one who dropped Jon off the Wall.
In an explanation in an ‘Inside the episode’ of HBO video, Coldhands Benjen obviously has a lot to do with the three-eyed raven over the past several years since his disappearance and he’s got a bit of a window into Bran’s purpose.
In the books, Coldhands is a mysterious figure from beyond the wall who looks like a wight but appears to be the intelligence of a human and a force for good.
The titles for episode 8, 9, and 10 has also been revealed ahead of its official release date – No one, battle of bastards, and the winds of winters respectively.
