Game of Thrones: 5 biggest moments from episode 2, season 6

After last week's exceedingly violent season opener, you'd be forgiven for thinking Game of Thrones might be slowing things down in its second episode of Season Six. Given how every season has a pretty game-changing episode nine (Ned's execution, the battle of Blackwater, the Red Wedding, and so on) it's not unusual for several episodes of character development, scene-setting, foreshadowing and game playing before the axes start falling. 

But there's obviously plenty of time for that later, as this week saw more key characters get bumped off, some hardcore giant, dragon and zombie action, and the return of some characters we haven't seen since Season Three. Here are the key moments from the episode.
