Game Of Thrones season 6 premiered on HBO last week and the mystery surrounding the fate of Lord Commander Jon Snow has continued to intrigue fans. But the remarkable transformation of Lady Melisandre in the first episode has renewed some hope that the Lord Commander might benefit from the hidden powers of the priestess of R'hllor.
Warning: Potential spoilers ahead
Episode 2 of the HBO magnum opus is titled, The Home, and as shown in the trailer it seems like the focus of the show will return to Bran Stark and his training under the Three-Eyed Raven. His disturbing dreams soon could lead to Ned Stark's son being able to enter human minds and learning about their past, present and future.
In the current season of GOT, Bran will master his abilities under the guidance of the Three-Eyed Raven and this is could become a major plot point of the current season.
Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays Bran on the show, told EW that his scenes with Max Von Sydow in the second episode are the best scenes ever. "Oh, that's the best scene I've ever done! On that scene is even better!" Hempstead-Wright said and teased that his character will save Westros from its political miseries.
"Now he's realized he's been having his dreams because he's got to save Westeros. It's such a cool storyline now," he added. Over the last five seasons, the Stark son's character has evolved from a naive little boy to a future teller and his immense magical powers.
"It started off with these disturbing dreams and finding he could control direwolves. Then he discovered he could warg into humans. Then he started to have these weird visions. Now he's starting to make use of the visions and starting to discover he can interact with the past — he's like Doctor Who. It's Doctor Bran," the actor explained.
The official synopsis of the episode reads:
"Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) trains with the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow). In King's Landing, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) advises Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman). Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) demands good news, but has to make his own. At Castle Black, the Night's Watch stands behind Thorne (Owen Teale). Bolton (Iwan Rheon) proposes a plan, and Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide) entertains other proposals."
As of now, Jon Snow's corpse is still lying dead in Castle Black and Alliser Thorne and his fellow Nights Watch members are preparing for the worst, while Ser Davos and Snow's fellow loyalists are planning their next moves, Melisandre's actions is still a mystery.
To know what happens ahead, watch Game Of Thrones season 6 episode 2, which will air on 1 May on HBO at 9pm ET.
