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.
In King’s Landing
Jaime and Mace Tyrell lead the Tyrell army through the streets of King’s Landing to the Great Sept of Baelor, where the High Sparrow is presenting Margaery to the people of King’s Landing. Jaime orders the High Sparrow to release Margaery and her brother Loras, threatening force against the Faith Militant. The High Sparrow declares that Margaery will not have to perform a walk of atonement, and instead presents King Tommen, who has agreed to unite the Faith and the Crown. Later, in the throne room, King Tommen relieves Jaime of his duties on the Kingsguard, to Jaime’s dismay.
HIGH SPARROW: Rich or poor, noble or common, if we sin, we must atone. Margaery of House Tyrell came to us a sinner. She stood before the gods in the holy sept and lied. She turned a blind eye to her brother’s sins. She disgraced her house, her king, and herself.
HIGH SPARROW: Lord Tyrell. Ser Jaime.
JAIME: Sorry to interrupt. We’re here for Queen Margaery and Ser Loras Tyrell. Give them to us and we’ll be on our way.
HIGH SPARROW: I don’t have the authority to give them to you. And you don’t have the authority to take them.
JAIME: I speak for King Tommen of House Baratheon, First of His Name.
HIGH SPARROW: The gods don’t recognize his authority in this matter.
JAIME: You’ve already insulted one great house. It won’t happen twice. Every last sparrow will die before Margaery Tyrell walks down that street.
HIGH SPARROW: To die in the service of the gods would please each and every one of us. We yearn for it. But there is no call for it today. There will be no walk of atonement. Queen Margaery has already atoned for her sins by bringing another into the true light of the Seven.
HIGH SPARROW: Together we announce a new age of harmony. A holy alliance between the Crown and the Faith.
CROWD: Long live King Tommen and bless you, Queen Margaery!
TOMMEN: The Crown and the Faith are the twin pillars upon which the world rests. Together we will restore the Seven Kingdoms to glory.
TOMMEN: When you attack the Faith, you attack the Crown. Anyone who attacks the Crown is unfit to serve as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.
JAIME: I’ve been a member of the Kingsguard since before you were born. You don’t have to do this. You don’t have to do anything.
TOMMEN: I have to answer to the gods.
JAIME: Not when you’re sitting in that chair.
TOMMEN: The Crown’s decision on this matter is final.
JAIME: Will I be walking naked in the streets? Or will I spend a few months in the sept dungeons first to teach me about the gods’ mercy?
TOMMEN: You have served your house and your king faithfully for many years. And you will continue to do so. But not in this city.
