Game of Thrones

After months and months of anticipation, it’s time to return to Westeros.

Tonight, HBO is kicking off season 6 of “Game of Thrones,” and the Sunday episode can be streamed online for free. Tonight we will find out whether Sansa and Theon’s escape from the Boltons will be successful, whether Tyrion can save Meereen from burning to the ground, and what will happen to Melisandre now that Stannis is dead despite her promises.

OK, no one really cares about that. What everyone really cares about is whether the world’s favorite Lord Commander, Jon Snow, is really and truly dead or if Melisandre will resurrect him. Either way, the answer to the show’s most talked about cliffhanger since the Red Wedding is almost here.
