Game of Thrones Episode 602—”Home”—Preview


Okay, here we go: Season 6, Episode 2. The premiere of Season 6, “The Red Woman,” caught us up with many of our characters, and pointed a few of them in interesting new directions, especially Sansa. Episode 2 sounds like it’ll follow through on some of those developments, and bring a couple others to a head (for example, Davos and company can’t hide behind that door forever).

It’ll also reintroduce us to some old friends. Here’s the official episode description:

"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."

“Home” will mark the returns of both Bran Stark, absent since Season 4, and the extended Greyjoy family, who in the case of Balon Greyjoy have been absent since Season 3, although we did check in with Yara in Season 4. Finally, Hodor will say “Hodor” again! (I’m guessing—I suppose we could go the entire episode without a single “Hodor,” but I’d feel cheated.)
