First, the preview:

 

Breakdown:

  1. Jon the Undead. If the Willings were prepared to fight to avenge him, they might just make him their king now. There’s something poignant in Jon succeeding Mance as King Beyond the Wall, but they’re not beyond the Wall now. Of course, that raises the question of whether he can simply resume his duties as Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. Technically, death releases him from his vows. So is he even still in the Watch?
  2. Arya the Unseeing. I’ll confess, I’m not sure where Arya’s plot line is going. If she truly becomes No One, then she ceases to be Arya, then she ceases to have any real connection to the story, but just folds into the House of White and Black. The whole point of her becoming lethal was to gain vengeance on her enemies. So I’ll assume that this arc continues to drag along.
  3. Ramsay’s Gift. Since we don’t know who that guy is, I can think of a couple of possibilities: 1) an Umber offering him Rickon Stark, or the whereabouts of Rickon Stark, 2) a Frey offering him a gesture of defiance for his butchery of Walda. I have serious doubts that Walder Frey is going to believe Ramsay’s story about how Roose and his wife and child all died on the same day, or that he’s not going to do anything about it. But who knows.
  4. Danaerys in Vaes Dothrak. The question of Dany’s arc this season is whether she’s going to cultivate her own path to survival, as she did in Season 2, or whether she’s going to rely on others for her rescue: Jorah, Daario, and the Drogon ex machina. In this episode, I suspect she’s just going to get locked into her khaleesi-widowhood.
  5. King’s Landing. Vengeful Cersei is vengeful. I don’t see her trial happening next week, so I expect sound and fury, signifying nothing.
  6. TOWER OF JOY! If you’re not a book reader, you don’t know that this is a big deal. This Bran seeing what happened when Ned Stark went looking for his sister Lyanna in the aftermath of Robert’s Rebellion. It is the single most tantalizing scene in the grand theory of Jon Snow’s true parentage. Basically, if you see a bunch of chatter on the internet regarding R+L=J, you’ll know why.
