GAME OF THRONES Preview: Another Old Face Reappears

Yara Greyjoy

On last week’s GAME OF THRONES, Jon Snow dropped the mic on his Lord Commander role and walked out of the gates.  Could he possibly be heading towards Winterfell in what I can only hope will be an epic Jon/Ramsay heated battle?

It looks like we might have to wait for that answer as this Sunday’s HBO preview does not picture his face, but does give us some tantalizing teasers on what’s to come.

Sansa and Brienne at the Gates of The Wall. Will Jon Snow already have left?  Is this going to be missed connection of our Stark siblings?  I think I may bust out crying when one of these reunions finally happen.

That Old Snake is Back. Littlefinger, whom we haven’t seen since he dropped off Sansa to an awful fate with Ramsay, turns up again, seemingly telling Lord Robin Arryn and Lord Yohn Royce  about Sansa’s escape from Winterfell.

Theon Gets Home. Having left Sansa in the woods with Brienne, Theon traveled and apparently made it home to the Iron Islands where we was not greeted warmly by his sister.

Dangerous Allies. Margaery’s fate looks to be decided as the same fate that Cersei endured:  the walk of shame.  Both Cersei and the Queen of Thorns unite together to say that will not happen.  Cersei have a change of heart since her walk of shame or she just now hates the High Sparrow more than Margaery now?

Tyrion and Varys Gets Questioned. It looks like the people of Meereen are getting restless after seeing their Queen ride off on a dragon and they don’t seem to think she’s coming back.

The Heroes Ride In. Speaking of Daenerys, we get a peek at Daario and Jorah crouched down outside of Vaes Dothrak.  Could a rescue be happening this coming week?  I’m going to say probably not.  I’m sure they’ll try and probably get caught.  My guess is that it’s going to take a Drogon (with the possible help of his siblings) to get the Queen out of the mountain.

Hopefully these questions, and more, are answered when we tune in for the next episode of GAME OF THRONES tonight (May 15) at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and HBO Canada.
