With “Book of the Stranger” aired and over, HBO has put out the trailer for next week’s episode, which has a slightly perplexing and versatile title: “The Door.”
As a reminder for those who are looking for my full scale breakdown: we’ll still be posting that at it’s usual time of 6pm EST, Monday. But until we can get to that, here’s the trailer by itself to hold you over.
If you haven’t seen “Book of the Stranger” yet, or have but don’t want to know what’s coming next, cease reading, because here there be SPOILERS.
Here is the synopsis:
Episode #55 (season 6, episode 5): “The Door”
Debut: Sunday, May 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
Tyrion seeks a strange ally. Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) learns a great deal. Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) goes on a mission. Arya (Maisie Williams) is given a chance to prove herself.
Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Jack Bender.
Not in the synopsis, but in the trailer we also learn:
Sansa is not pleased with Littlefinger. He’s going to need to make this Ramsay marriage business up to her. Big time.
Arya is going to get her first crack at assassination since she screwed up the last one.
We’re going to sit through the Kingsmoot. Here’s hoping it’s not nearly as long as it is in the books.
Our new Red Priestess will arrive to make a deal with Tyrion.
And Bran…is having a very bad dream. A very, very bad dream. You know the kind you can’t wake up from? Yeah, that’s not good when you’re seeing things…like, The Night’s King.
