Let’s Speculate Wildly on These Cryptic New ‘Game of Thrones’ Synopses
Even as the direwolf’s out of the bag with regard to Jon Snow, Game of Thrones Season 6 isn’t about to lift its veil of secrecy just yet. Cue the latest maddeningly cryptic synopses, previewing May 15's “Book of the Stranger” and May 22 outing “The Door.” Wild speculation awaits!
“Book of the Stranger”
Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) strikes a deal. Jorah (Iain Glen) and Daario (Michiel Huisman) undertake a difficult task. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey) try to improve their situation. Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Dan Sackheim.
Okay! Certainly one might expect Tyrion to strike some deals to help keep Mereen on its feet (or perhaps work on restoring Dany’s fleet), while Jorah and Daario have only one real difficult task ahead of them, to find their lost queen. Perhaps Jaime and Cersei will sic the Zombie Mountain on the Sparrows!
Moving on to May 22:
Tyrion seeks a strange ally. Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) learns a great deal. Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) goes on a mission. Arya (Maisie Williams) is given a chance to prove herself. Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Jack Bender.
Little tougher, but we can guess the ally in question might follow a certain trailer scene of Tyrion and Varys speaking with a Red Priestess. Bran’s always learning a great deal (Westeros has some history, guys), Brienne could run afoul of several different familiar faces, and Arya … baking a soufflé? Door repairs? You don’t wanna get that one chance and screw it up, believe me.
Perhaps the Lord of Light will shed some with Sunday’s “Oathbreaker,” trailers for which you can find below.
