While we don’t know exactly what happens on the next two episodes of Game of Thrones, HBO released the tantalizing synopses for them.
After an incredible Season 6 opener, the second episode, entitled Home, will finally catch us up on what Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) is doing. That means Max Von Sydow will make his Thrones debut this weekend. The legendary actor plays the Three-Eyed Raven, who is training Bran. Here’s the full description for Home:
“Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) trains with the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow). In King’s Landing, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) advises Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman). Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) demands good news, but has to make his own. At Castle Black, the Night’s Watch stands behind Thorne (Owen Teale). Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) proposes a plan, and Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide) entertains other proposals.”
The May 8 episode is titled Oathbreaker, although considering how many instances of betrayal there have been on Thrones, that could describe anyone. The description for this episode confirms that Arya (Maisie Williams) is still training to be No One. Here’s the description for Oathbreaker:
“Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) meets her future. Bran meets the past. Tommen confronts the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). Arya (Maisie Williams) trains to be No One. Varys (Conleth Hill) finds an answer. Ramsay gets a gift.”
Obviously, both synopses leave more than a handful of questions. And it still looks like Jon Snow is dead… maybe? We hate to say this again, but we’ll just have to watch to find out.
New Thrones episodes debut on Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
