In Season 6 of Game of Thrones, it looks like the War of the Five Kings has ended only to bring on the War of the Five Queens. House Slate hosts Marc Faletti and Amanda Marcotte don't think Cersei's going to like all these younger, more beautiful women challenging her from all corners of Westeros.

Melisandre is one woman who seems to have given up the fight, but, as Marc and Amanda believe, the red woman will realize she has one shot left to finally do the right thing. Will she be the one to bring Jon Snow back? How many episodes will Kit Harrington play dead before we get the undead hero of our dreams? Your hosts don't know that, but they do have an idea about how this is going to play out.

Amanda Marcotte is writer for Salon.

Marc Faletti is the director of multimedia for Rewire and is based in Brooklyn.

Daniel Hubbard is a writer, editor, and director living in New York City.
