Synopsis: Seven noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros.
HBO's fantasy hit won the Best Drama Series Emmy last year, but one more badly-executed rape scene could cost it in 2016.
The episode is titled "Book of the Stranger."
The book serves as the official basis of the show's sixth season.
"Death is not heartbreaking anymore, and part of what you love about this series is it will break your heart."
Though the episode didn't lack for deaths or plot development, it still dragged a bit.
