‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Clip: Arya Arrives at House of Black & White

When she gets to the House of Black and White doors, she shows the man who answers the coin given to her by Jaquen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha), a character who hasn't been seen since Game of Thrones Season 2. The official Season 5 synopsis reveals that Arya "seeks an old friend," who is likely Jaquen H'ghar, although the last time we saw him, he literally changed his face. In the books, H'ghar is one of "The Faceless Men" whose headquarters are the House of Black and White.

This clip is likely from the second episode of Season 5, fittingly entitled "The House of Black and White", which will air Sunday, April 19 on HBO, one week after the season premiere "The Wars to Come". How do you think Arya will fare in Braavos? Do you think she will ever be reunited with Jaquen H'ghar? Check out the clip and her interview with Jimmy Kimmel below.

When the Friday Comic-Con schedule was announced earlier this month, one of the biggest question marks was a mysterious Hall H panel that didn't release any information about what studio or movie would be presented. Just minutes ago, the Hall H crowd was greeted by none other than Sam Raimi, who arrived to promote his Screen Gems video game adaptation The Last of Us, which may star Bruce Campbell and Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams.

The crowd was shown footage of the video game, with the tag "soon to be a major motion picture" at the end, before Sam Raimi and Neil Druckman from the video game company Naughty Dog hit the stage.
