This is such a good name for an episode, it’s causing us stress! “The Door” feels like it might be a major episode for this season of Game of Thrones. The show is introducing a brand new character, Kinvara, a red priestess just like Melissandre (with the a very similar looking necklace!) But Kinvara isn’t interested in helping Jon Snow — she’s on Daenerys’s team. Will Varys and Tyrion trust her? Regardless, Daenerys might need some convincing. We’ve seen her use blood magic before and it didn’t end well (R.I.P. Khal Drogo and Baby Drogo). But if she does get her own red priestess, it’s clear that all signs are pointing to Daenerys and Jon Snow as the lead opponents in the fight for the throne.

We love the back story we get from Bran’s training with the Three-Eyed Raven, and “The Door” has Bran continuing his journey to learn everything. This time he’s getting to know the power of the White Walkers first hand via his Warg abilities. But we’ve seen that the mental traveling Wargs do can be dangerous, and judging by this episode’s trailer, Bran might be in more trouble than he expected.

Other things to look out for:

  • It’s election time in the Iron Islands. Yara Greyjoy will surely claim the Salt Throne during the Kingsmoot, but we’ll have to wait in and see who is willing to challenge her. Maybe a long forgotten uncle?
  • Baelish has made it to Castle Black, but he’s not receiving the warmest of welcomes. Looks like Sansa is going to get to confront him about leaving her with Ramsay.
  • Arya can see, so she’s back in action. We haven’t spent much time with her in Bravos, but her training has progressed quickly and it might be time for her to go out and do some damage.

“The Door” synopsis, from HBO:
Tyrion seeks a strange ally. Bran learns a great deal. Brienne goes on a mission. Arya is given a chance to prove herself.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
