The wait is over as the young Bran Stark played by Isaac Hempstead Wright makes his debut in Episodes 2 and 3 of Season Six of the fantasy series “Game of Thrones.” The two episodes will show what happened to the Bran and will tease fans to more twists and revelations as well.
Fans surely missed the 17-year old lad as his role was not included in Season Five. With all that said, Hempstead-Wright is back reprising his role as Bran Stark, the youngest of the Stark siblings who has traveled with his bannermen Jojen and Meera Reed to fulfill the visions that he and Jojen share.
In Episode Two entitled “Home,” Bran Stark will be revealed training with the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow) in Winterfell honing his skills of vision. The episode Written by Dave Hill; directed by Jeremy Podeswa does not give so many details as the show does not want spoilers to spill out what to expect, but the Independent writes that still photos showing Bran with Winterfell in its background might hold the key to the episode’s title. It might well be a flashback of his younger days in their home or a vision that would reveal the Bolton family still in charge of the Stark’s stronghold.
Other scenes to be expected in episode two includes Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) will continue his role as the “Hand of the King” as he advises the young Tommen Baratheon (Dean-Charles Chapman) over at King’s Landing. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), on the other hand, demands good news but has to make his own. At Castle Black, the Night’s Watch stands behind Thorne (Owen Teale). Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) proposes a plan, and Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide) entertains other proposals.

In Episode three entitled “Oathbreaker,” it will discuss more on Bran’s past and what really happened to him before he was taken in by the Three-eyed Raven. The show is giving more emphasis on Hempstead Wright’s character, who was totally out of the previous season.
The episode heats up as Tommen confronts the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) while Arya (Maisie Williams) trains to be No One. Varys (Conleth Hill) finds an answer. Ramsay gets a gift in the episode Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Dan Sackheim.
Things to watch for includes how will Jaime face the High Sparrow as he reveals his sins or will Jaime will be lead off to Casterly Rock? There is also the scene wherein Tyrion is seen visiting Khaleesi’s dragons, will he be able to tame them and use them to his advantage? There is also the question of the fate of Cersei as she is placed under house arrest and will the prophecy told her get the best of her or will she again stir up King’s Landing as she did before? And how will Bran Stark get in touch with his siblings? Will his skills gather them once again or is he going on another adventure as he was seen side-by-side with the leader of the White Walkers – the Knight’s King?
Episode two of “Game of Thrones” airs on May 1 while episode three will be aired on May 8 over at HBO.
