WARNING: Potential spoilers for upcoming episodes of 'Game of Thrones.'
Last night, Season 6 of Game of Thrones finally kicked off and we couldn't be happier. After months of anticipation, the inaugural episode "The Red Woman" certainly did not disappoint. Between Brienne of Tarth's epic entrance and Melisandre's unexpected reveal, it's safe to say this season is already gearing up to be one of the show's best.
To whet our appetites, HBO released the plot synopses for the two upcoming episodes. Titled "Home" and "Oathbreaker" respectively, episodes 2 and 3 show no sign of slowing down.
Season 6, Episode 2: '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.
After a season away from the screen, we'll finally get back to Bran's storyline and see what he's been learning from the Three-Eyed Raven? Hopefully we'll be getting more Hodor time in as well. As for the goings-on in King's Landing, Jaime will attempt to guide his nephew-son in the ways of being a king.
Castle Black seems to be business as usual, and there's no business like Jon Snow business. Meanwhile, we'll tune back in with everyone's favorite sadistic (former) bastard son Ramsay Bolton, and Balon Greyjoy, a.k.a. Reek Senior, who we haven't seen since Season 3.
Season 6, Episode 3: '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.
Arya continues her Daredevil-esque training and her brother Bran takes a look into the past (perhaps a family history lesson?) Personally, I'm most excited to see Tommen and the High Sparrow go head to head. Although, given Tommy's seemingly weak disposition, my money is on the High Sparrow.
Given the heartfelt oaths recently exchanged by Sansa and Brienne, I'm hoping the title "Oathbreaker" is referring to pretty much anyone else in Westeros. It might be a long shot, but maybe we'll see Jon Snow break his oath to the Night's Watch when he's resurrected from the dead! Not a likely situation, but it can't hurt to be hopeful.
