Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 06 Blood of My Blood
No. 606. Title: Blood of My Blood. Directed by Jack Bender. Written by Bryan Cogman. Original Air Date: May 29, 2016. Sinopse: Bran and Meera are saved by Bran’s uncle, Benjen Stark, who went missing from the Night’s Watch years earlier. Sam and Gilly reach the Tarly family estate Horn Hill en route to the Citadel. After Sam’s father, Lord Randyll, insults Gilly for being a Wildling, Sam decides to take her with him to the Citadel, also taking House Tarly’s ancestral Valyrian steel sword, Heartsbane. Arya warns the actress she has been charged with killing of the assassination attempt, and Jaqen orders the Waif to kill Arya. Jaime attempts to rescue Margaery from the Faith Militant, only to find she has repented and Tommen has forged an alliance with the Faith. Tommen removes Jaime from the Kingsguard, and orders him to help Walder Frey, who is holding Edmure Tully hostage, retake Riverrun from the Blackfish. Daenerys rides Drogon, and declares to the Dothraki that they will sail across the Narrow Sea to conquer Westeros.
At Horn Hill
Sam, Gilly and Little Sam arrive at Horn Hill, the seat of House Tarly. Sam warns Gilly not to mention that she is a Wildling, due to his father Randyll’s hatred of Wildlings. They are warmly greeted by Sam’s mother Melessa and sister Talla.
SAM: I didn’t think I’d ever come back here after my father made me renounce my title and inheritance and, well, threaten to kill me if I didn’t. A person just doesn’t feel welcome at that point. And I certainly didn’t expect to be introducing him to my family. So you know what to tell them.
GILLY: That Little Sam is your baby.
SAM: Yes, now that’s very important. If he thinks that Little Sam is his grandchild, he’ll take you in. He’ll get an education. He’ll learn to read. And you can help teach him. Huh?
GILLY: What did you tell your family about me?
SAM: I told them I met you in the North.
GILLY: Did you tell them how far north?
SAM: Well, it wasn’t a very large piece of parchment.
GILLY: You didn’t tell them where I’m really from? You didn’t tell them I’m a wildling?
SAM: The thing is… my father doesn’t like wildlings. He hoped I’d make a man of myself by “killing some bloody wildlings,” so it’s probably a good subject to avoid if at all possible.
