At the end of "Game of Thrones" season 5, the expectations were raised and theories abounded about the fate of Jon Snow. With Season 6 over, a brief recap will help us all keep an eye on the evolving path towards Danaerys' travel to possibly conquer Westeros. Let's begin with season 6 episode 1.

Last season on "Game of Thrones"

At the very beginning of Season 6 we see Daenerys is brought before Khal Moro, Jon Snow is found, Ser Davos, Brianne and Pod save Lady Sansa and Theonn from Ramsey Bolton, and Jaime Lannister returns to Cercei with their dead daughter.

Meanwhile Arya is seen living as a blind beggar in the streets of Braavos. By episode 4, we have Sansa reuniting with Jon Snow, and Lord Baelish leaves only to return with soldiers to save Jon's horde from almost certain defeat at the hands of Ramsey's army. (Sadly we lose what may be the last Giant from north of the wall in this episode.) Queen Marghery visits her brother in captivity, (Sir Loras.)

Episode 7

Queen Marghery convinces her Aunt Olenna to return to Highgarden after the High Sparrow, (acting as high septon) tries to encourage Marghery to bring her into the faith. Theonn and Yara set sail for Mareen to find Daenerys and Arya sets off for Westoros. Episode 9 Daenerys rides a dragon and destroys a fleet of slaver ships attacking her city, Ramsey kills Rickon Stark, and Sansa avenges Rickon by letting Ramsey's dogs eat him alive.

Episode 10 Cercei destroys the Sept of Baelor killing everyone inside including very notable characters like Margery and the High Sparrow. King Tommen in despair throws himself out of the window of the high tower killing himself. The Knights of the Vale swear fealty to Jon Snow, Bran uses his new powers to discover that Jon is the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna.

Gilly and Sam arrive at the Citadel, and Cercei allows the Mountain to torture the Nun who was to be her confessor.

Season 7 (Warning possible spoilers)

Khal Drogo himself is rumored to be headed to Ireland where season 7 is being filmed, on instagram he posted a cryptic message; "I prepare for the north," while other actors have also been spotted making the trek.

Iain Glen (Ser Jorah) as well as Joseph Mawle, (Benjen Stark) Wild speculations ranging from a love triangle between Jon, Danaerys, and Jorah Mormont, might take a backseat to the idea of Lady Sansa betraying Jon Snow at the behest of Littlefinger. If Khal Drogo does return, he'll likely not show up until after Jon's arrival at Danaery's gate. HBO is considering a spin off series as well.
