Spoilers and Speculation Ahead
The title ‘Home’ for episode 2 is quite generic but the description is exciting, especially the part which says- Tyrion demands good news, but has to make his own. The only way it seems that he can make good news is by releasing the dragons and trailers for season 6 have suggested the same. Also, the above image is from Episode 2 preview and he is in the hall where dragons are currently chained. Tyrion being a targaryen is one of the favorite fan theories and it will be interesting to see what happens when he finally meets Rhaegal and Viserion.
Also, we will finally see the return of Bran Stark and the Greyjoys. Balon Greyjoy’s death has been long overdue and it will be interesting to see how Euron Greyjoy’s storyline pans out. Bran’s training with three eyed raven should set things up nicely for this character.
Most awaited part of episode 2, however, will be the confrontation between Ser Davos and Alliser Thorne over Jon Snow’s dead body and if this 50 second clip from the episode is any indication, it’s not going to be a pleasant one.
For episode 3 ‘Oathbreaker’, the title could refer to Jaime Lannister or/and Roose Bolton as both are known oathbreakers. The former broke his oath as Kingsguard when he killed The Mad King during Robert’s Rebellion and the latter broke his oath as bannerman of House Stark. It could also refer to Brienne whose sword is named ‘Oathkeeper’ but after the events of episode 1, it seems unlikely.
Most exciting part of episode 3 could be Bran visiting the past. Will we finally see the Tower of Joy flashback? Or some other vision? Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon’s childhood maybe?
