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.**
With a solid 65k Twitter mentions throughout the hour long show, episode six fell a fraction behind last week’s mentions.
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.
The ending of episode five saw over 4000 mentions per minute in the final moments, so putting things in perspective this was a fairly tame episode for mention spikes.
Despite that, the overall volume was fairly consistent with the previous three shows.
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.
Jon Snow, who appeared in the all top five most mentioned charts for episodes one to four, hasn’t been generating nearly as much conversation in episodes five and six.
Looking at the most shared tweets of the day, we found a lot of harking back to the last episode:

Game of Thrones tonight, I hope this episode isn’t as brutal as that last one, don’t think my heart can take it! ?
