React: Twitter Reacts to Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 6

Brandwatch analyzes data to look at how Twitter reacts to Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 6.

Game of Thrones strikes again with another epic episode.

After last week’s heartbreaking storyline, we were all hoping for something happier.

But was it delivered?

**MILD SPOILER ALERT: We won’t go into the details of what happened but we’ll tell you which characters were mentioned most and when. If you want to avoid that, we’d suggest coming back later.**

Unusually, the biggest mentions didn’t come in the final moments (the time the most shocking death/biggest revelation/boobs are typically reserved for).

It was 9:45pm EST when the episode got the most tweets, with “Tommen” the most mentioned word within those.

Episode four has been the worst performing so far.


Looking at mentions within the #GameofThrones conversation, we found Daenerys Targaryen stealing the top spot this week, with Arya Stark and Gilly behind her in second and third.
