Game of Thrones: 5 biggest moments from episode 6, season 6

In the wake of last week’s eye-opening - and door-closing - episode of Game of Thrones, Hodor’s demise has been the only thing on people’s lips (one ShortList staffer has even been signing his emails off ‘Hodor’ as a mark of respect to the tragic stableboy). What does his sacrifice mean for the future of the show? How is Bran going to beat the Night’s King?

This week’s episode was a more considered, thematic hour, where we saw alliances solidify, unions crumble and the return of several key characters (and a particularly large dragon). Here are the biggest moments.
