Jon lives (!!!); Arya continues her training to become No One; Bran’s warging gives new insight into Robert’s Rebellion. Get a sneak peek of this week’s Game of Thrones (“Oathbreaker”), airing Sunday, May 8 at 9:00pm ET|PT on HBO.
Folks, nothing else matters because JON SNOW LIVES! Days later and the image of Jon opening his eyes and taking a breath still has me so excited and flaily!
Thank you Lord of Light! Thank you Melisandre! Thank you Ser Davos for insisting that something could be done for Jon and not letting them burn his body. Thank you loyal members of the Night’s Watch for guarding Jon’s body and assembling the Wildlings to stop Alliser Thorne. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Of course, Jon’s resurrection triggers so many questions. Is he the same Jon? Will he take revenge on Ser Alliser and Ollie? What will happen as a result of this rift in the Night’s Watch? Is Jon still Lord Commander? What I’m most excited about is when Sansa, Brienne, and Pod get to Castle Black and Sansa tells Jon about everything Ramsay and the Boltons have done. Vengeance belongs to the Starks!
According to a series of interviews with Entertainment Weekly, Kit Harington shares that this season will be the most important one for Jon Snow, so far. In fact, Kit spent more days filming than any other actor.
Other notable moments in “Home” include:
- #BranIsBae It is so great to catch up with Bran. He has come a long way, and his warging with the Three-Eyed Raven is going to provide so much insight and reveal a lot of secrets. For example, we already got a chance to see young Ned, Benjen, and Lyanna (!!!!). Also, apparently Hodor was once able to speak in full sentences and his real name is Wylis. My great hope is that, through Bran’s warging, we’ll continue to learn more about the events that led to Robert’s Rebellion (including Lyanna’s “kidnapping”/death and Jon Snow’s parentage *wink*wink*).
- I LOVE seeing Tyrion Lannister, #FriendOfDragons, in action! He drinks, he knows things, and he set Viserion and Rhaegal free.
- In King’s Landing, it looks like Cersei and Jaime are setting Tommen up to lead an armed conflict against High Sparrow.
- Thank goodness Jaqen H’ghar stopped allowing Arya to get beat up.
- #PoorWalda #PoorBabyBolton I can’t say that I’m sorry Roose Bolton is dead, because he was a duplicitous and scheming man. However, the fact that Ramsay (after killing Roose, Walda, and the new baby) is now free to carry out his deranged violence with no checks… this makes me extremely nervous. With that said, I don’t know if Ramsay will survive this season.

In this week’s Game of Thrones, “Oathbreaker” (written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, directed by Dan Sackheim):
Daenerys meets her future. Bran meets the past. Tommen confronts the High Sparrow. Arya trains to be No One. Varys finds an answer. Ramsay gets a gift. (via HBO)
