After a record-setting premiere, HBO has moved onto the second episode of this sixth season of Game of Thrones, releasing several photos from upcoming entry in the hit fantasy drama. The episode, “Home,” is described thusly in HBO’s press release:
Bran trains with the Three-eyed Raven. In King’s Landing, Jaime advises Tommen. Tyrion demands good news, but has to make his own. At Castle Black, the Night’s Watch stands behind Thorne. Ramsay Bolton proposes a plan, and Balon Greyjoy entertains other proposals.”
The episode is directed by Jeremy Podeswa, the same guy who directed the first episode of Season 6, “The Red Woman” and shot Jon Snow’s body from as many angles as possible. And “Home” was written by Dave Hill, who penned Season 5’s “Sons of the Harpy,” in which Jaime and Bronn had that unfortunate Dorne fight, Melisandre tried to seduce Jon, and Daenerys and Ser Barristan discussed Rhaegar Targaryen.
Here are the episode’s photos:
Bran makes a comeback from sitting Season 5 out — since his visions will reveal important events from the past and future, perhaps he’ll reveal some of Jon Snow’s history.
Everyone’s favorite Greyjoy Yara is back! Didn’t you miss her charismatic presence? This episode might be the one that answers our burning question: Will Season 6 finally make the Greyjoys interesting?
Finally, Alliser Thorne is still the Donald Trump of Westeros. Keep those pseudo-refugees on the other side of that wall, and use force to solve all your problems. That’ll end well!
“Home” airs this Sunday May 1st on HBO.
