‘Game of Thrones’ Teases Joy-ful Past and Greyjoy Future in New S6 Synopses
Given all the secrecy around Game of Thrones’ not-that-shocking Season 6 premiere, we’re only now learning what lies ahead for the next few weeks, which may bring the real shock. Not only will we catch up with the Greyjoys, but two new Game of Thrones Season 6 synopses should get Jon Snow hopes rising with an oath-breaking trip to the past.
Far less maddeningly cryptic than their predecessor, the next two Game of Thrones synopses for May 1 “Home” and May 8 “Oathbreaker” offer some tantalizing clues for fans to salivate over. The first will likely open up the long-awaited Kingsmoot story, reading:
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.
Still, the second glimpse into the future eyes a glimpse into the past, potentially the long-awaited Tower of Joy flashback, and potentially the return of our dearly-departed Lord Commander with it:
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.
Of course, each clue could be made to fit a number of predictions, but will the next few Game of Thrones weeks bring us anything more unexpected than that big Melisandre reveal? Check out the trailers below, and stay tuned.
