Season 6 of Game of Thrones continued tonight with "Home", which may go down in the show's history as one of the most memorable episodes. Following this epic episode, HBO has released a new preview for Episode 3, "Oathbreaker", which teases a number of intriguing developments for next week's episode. We also have a number of behind-the-scenes previews which shed more light on "Home". If you haven't seen this episode yet, there will be MASSIVE SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
The Season 5 finale, "Mother's Mercy", ended with the brutal killing of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), who was murdered in cold blood by Aliser Thorne (Owen Teale) and several other brothers of the Night's Watch. Many fans had speculated that the priestess Melisandre (Carice Van Houten) may be able to use her magical powers to bring Snow back from the dead, since another high priest, Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) used his abilities to bring Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer back from the dead. We found out at the end of "Home" that Melisandre has this power of resurrection as well, successfully bringing Jon Snow back from the dead as the episode came to an end.
The "Oathbreaker" preview shows Jon Snow rising from the table that his corpse had laid on in the first two Season 6 episodes, with Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) mentioning that some think Jon Snow is a "god," due to his resurrection. Unfortunately, we don't see any more of Jon Snow in this preview, so we'll have to wait and see how he deals with Aliser Thorne. In "Home", just before Aliser and his Night's Watch followers were about to break down the door and capture Davos (Liam Cunningham) and other Night's Watch brothers who are loyal to Snow, Dolorous Edd (Ben Crompton) returns with Tormund and several wildlings, who put Aliser and his followers in the Castle Black jail cells.
This preview also shows that Blind Arya is starting to fight back in her duels against The Waif (Faye Marsay), now that she has been brought back to the House of Black and White by Jaquen H'gar (Tom Wlaschiha). We also see that Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) has a visitor who has a gift for him, which comes after Ramsay killed his own father Roose (Michael McElhatton), his wife Lady Walda (Elizabeth Webster) and his newborn brother. We also get a glimpse of another one of Bran Stark's (Isaac Hempstead Wright) visions along with the Three-Eyed Raven (Max Von Sydow), which appears to show another flashback involving a younger Ned Stark, who engages in battle with unknown enemies. Take a look at the trailer for next week's episode, "Oathbreaker", which airs on Sunday, May 8 at 9 PM ET on HBO.
