Get on the hype train: In this episode, we finally get to check in with Bran, who the audience hasn’t seen since season four. It’s unclear how much time has passed in canon, but apparently long enough for him to go through puberty. More importantly, Bran appears to be standing in the episode promo. Is this an expression of his Warg magic or has he healed? Does this have anything to do with the Old Gods? Since it’s so unorthodox to drop what was a major storyline for an entire season just to pick it back up, I’m hopeful this will be worth the wait.

The Iron Islands and the Greyjoys are also back in the picture after a brief break, no doubt to figure out a plan regarding the newly escaped Theon.

A few more things to look out for:

  • Sansa remembers she has a sister. For so long, Sansa has been in too much danger to give much thought to her sister. But now, not only does Brienne’s presence offer protection, but also information, since she has actually seen Arya and knows she’s alive.
  • Cersei and Jaime are fed up and ready to turn things around in King’s Landing via intimidation from the Mountain and verbal showdowns with the High Sparrow.
  • The Boltons need Sansa back since have no hope to rule the North without her. Ramsay seems sure she’ll be heading to Castle Black, which may or may not be accurate.
  • Speaking of Castle Black, things are tense as ever there. Jon Snow’s supporters are presumably still trapped, with most of The Night’s Watch sticking with Thorne.
  • Tyrion has to go see the dragons. Good luck with that.

“Home” synopsis, from HBO:

Bran trains with the Three-Eyed Raven. In King’s Landing, Jaime advises Tommen. Tyrion demands good news, but has to make his own. At Castle Black, the Night’s Watch stands behind Thorne. Ramsay Bolton proposes a plan, and Balon Greyjoy entertains other.

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