It’s a great day to be a Brienne fan. I got two Likes on Twitter from Gwendoline Christie since last night, and we hear some very promising news from the Telegraph regarding the LA Premiere of Season 6. Critic Jane Mulkerrins tell us…and I am putting this under a cut because I think this is substantial enough to count as a SPOILER:
Other prominent female characters forging alliances make for a pleasingly feminist flavour to the events. The biggest cheer from the audience was reserved for the dramatic appearance of Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), finally fulfilling a long-held ambition and making her loyal presence felt.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, has promised that audiences will see “Sansa take command” this season. And judging from the first hour of action, she’s certainly on her way, the long-suffering lady no more.
Well, there we go. Brienne has finally fulfilled a long-held ambition, made her loyal presence felt, won the biggest cheer from the audience, and is included among prominent female characters forging alliances. Mulkerrins has just brought us to the 99.9% mark in the protection assignment finally happening.
Now tell Sansa about your encounter with Arya, before you drop her off with Davos!
I keep waiting to find out I’ve embarrassed myself, and it keeps not happening.
