The Wildlings will finally scale the Wall in the upcoming episode of “Game of Thrones,” “The Climb.” It seems Jon and Ygritte had to come out of their cave after all in episode 6, because a new promo for the upcoming episode shows the duo beginning their ascent up to Castle Black.
Though Jon broke his vows to the Night’s Watch in Sunday’s “Kissed by Fire,” it remains to be seen whose side he will stand on once he finds himself in Castle Black again. Hopefully he remembers his allegiances are to Westeros, but with an intriguing leader in Mance Rayder and new love interest, he could want to stay north of the Wall.
“The Climb” will also show the return of Bran and Theon, both of whose storylines were absent from “Kissed by Fire.” Theon seems to be in as bad of shape as ever, and the boy who betrayed him tells him, “If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention.” It’s not much of a stretch to say that this is the mantra of “Game of Thrones” as well.
Also, did anyone else love the fact that we finally get to see Brienne in a dress, even if she is trying to kill Roose Bolton while wearing it? Fans of the George R.R. Martin books might rebel against this prettier Brienne because she is supposed to be ugly, but we love this softer side of the character.
“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays on HBO at 9 p.m. ET.
