Warning: This post will contain Game of Thrones spoilers…
This past week’s episode of Game of Thrones, was an eventful one, as it not only brought Jon Snow back to life, but also set up impending conflicts with The Night’s Watch and the Boltons, betrayal amongst the Greyjoy clan, and more. It was the perfect mix between set up, intrigue, surprise, and resolution and continues to set season six on a course to make it possibly, the best season of the series yet.
With just a few days to go until the next episode of the season as well, the first images from “Oathbreaker” have been revealed, which seem to tease Bran and the Three-Eyed Raven’s journey back into the past more (which many believe will feature Ned Stark and his men fighting down the guards outside the Tower of Joy), Arya’s training with the House of Black and White, Dany’s continued journey with the Dothraki, and more.
Check out the images and stills below:
For reference as well, check out the official synopsis for “Oathbreaker” below:
“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.”
Even more than the stills, the “Oathbreaker” title should be enough for Game of Thrones fans to chew on leading up to its premiere this Sunday night, as it’s possible it could be a reference back to the season four episode, titled “Oathkeeper,” which at the time was connected to the name of Brienne’s sword, given to her by Jaime Lannister. Or it could be in reference to Jon Snow leaving the Night’s Watch, a presumed story beat of the season, following his death last season, and therefore, completing his original Night’s Watch vows.
The idea of it possibly being connected to Brienne is a worrying thought in my mind, considering how tenuous her and Sansa’s safety is at the moment, the fact that Littlefinger will have to come back into play at some point this season, and her staunch code of honor in the series, which has always been one of her most lovable and problematic traits. At this point though, I feel even slightly foolish theorizing and speculating about what’s going to happen next, because it seems like things are becoming less and less predictable this season. Which is saying a lot for a series that made a name for itself because of its unpredictability.
Game of Thrones airs every Sunday night on HBO.
