Last week, Game of Thrones hit the ground running with “The Red Woman,” the show’s sixth season premiere. Sansa finally got some allies, half the people in Dorne were shuffled off this mortal coil, and Melisandre let us all in on a little secret.
Producers and cast members have promised that Season 6 is a thrill-a-minute affair, so we can expect tonight’s episode—entitled “Home”—to keep the momentum going. Here’s HBO’s official synopsis:
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.
From that description alone, we can extract some interesting things. Most obviously, this episode will feature the return of at least two old faces: Bran Stark will come back after sitting Season 5 out, and Balon Greyjoy will show up for the first time since Season 3. And if Bran’s in the episode, Hodor probably is too.
HBO’s official trailer for the episode gives us a couple more glimpses of what’s to come:
HBO is doing a better job of keeping episodes from leaking ahead of their air dates than it did last year, when the first four episodes of Season 5 leakedbefore the premiere. That said, there are still major spoilers floating around out there, and you can look at them if you really want. But if you find out something you didn’t want to know ahead of time, it’s on you.
