Game of Thrones: 5 biggest moments from episode one

The wait has been excruciating: as drawn-out, messy and painful as a dagger in the eye. But finally, Game of Thrones is back on our screens.

Season Five ended with a number of characters heading making hasty retreats as battles were lost, plans were scuppered, eyesights were snatched and blood was spilled. Though the trailers and teases have given very little away, we know this: Season Six is going to see us crossing uncharted waters.

The first season to truly leap off the page and get ahead of George RR Martin’s source material (he explained in January that he’d missed not one, but two deadlines for Winds of Winter), Season Six leaves even book readers in the dark.

So with the show past its half-way point and tearing break-neck towards its inevitable end, ShortList will be recapping each episode with the biggest moments, shocking twists and the scenes that left us with our jaws hanging. Read on for details of Season Six, Episode One (The Red Woman).
