Well, the first episode of Game Of Thrones season six only left like, a million questions that need to be answered, and the anxiety of having to wait seven days between each installment is already mounting.
Luckily, the fine folks over at HBO have given us a little inclination of what we can expect to see in both episodes 2 and 3 – set to air May 1st and 8th, respectively.
While the details offered up are minimal, hey, at least they’re something indicative of where we can expect the storylines to head this season. This way at least you know what you’re getting into, and can prepare your disappointment if your favorite characters are absent.
**Obviously, there are spoilers if you read any further**
This Sunday’s episode is titled “Home,” and looks to bring two pretty big characters back in the mix:
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.
Bran! Bet you forgot about Bran, right!? Dude was shaping up to be a HUGE part of the story until he was all but written off last season in favor of chronicling some other key characters. And Balon Greyjoy is set to make an appearance, and we can only hope he’s less harsh on his son then in past times, given what poor Theon/Reek has gone through the past two seasons at the hands of Ramsay.
Episode 3 is titled “Oathbreaker,” and unfortunately, details are even more scarce for this one:
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.
At least we know we’ll get a heavy does of Daenerys and Arya, arguably two of the shows most pivotal and intriguing characters up until this point.
Only six more days, bros. SIX. MORE. DAYS.
Until then, definitely check out our Chill Bro GoT rankings, which we’ll be rolling out every Monday following each episode. They’re a great read.
