Game of Thrones S6E1 Review: “The Red Woman”

Game of Thrones

“Game of Thrones” is back with another scene-setting premiere episode. Featuring eight different locations, this is not an episode with any narrative momentum, but it does remind you about all of the pieces on the board and shows you where they may be moving this season. We break it down, including an digression about whether the religious figures in this show are serving active, interventionist gods, or if they’re just using religion to achieve their own personal ends.
