‘Game of Thrones’ “First of His Name” Preview: Sansa Finds Shelter, Jon Goes to War
This past Sunday’s latest ‘Game of Thrones‘ installment “Oathkeeper” dialed back the controversy a bit with some less literary-rooted material, but will this coming weekend’s “First of His Name” shake things up for the season’s halfway point? Find out where Sansa and Littlefinger are off to, and what gives Daenerys the sassy face in the full set of photos from this Sunday’s newest ‘Game of Thrones!’
For as prominently as Jon Snow and the attack on Craster’s keep figure into the promo above, you won’t find any major swordplay in the full “First of His Name” photoset beyond Arya putting in a little Needle practice. Elsewhere, Sansa arrives to the Eyrie, while Daenerys plots her next move after the takeover of Mereen, and Tywin Lannister (that’s right, Big Papa Lannister) installs young Tommen on the throne. Sadly, Ser Pounce will not be in attendance of the coronation.
Here’s what HBO had to say of this Sunday’s “First of His Name”:
Episode #35: “First of His Name”

We’re hoping to have a strong showing from the Night’s Watch this week, in spite of the pictures below, but what do you think?
