Game of Thrones season 6 episode 5 trailer: The show's most fearsome character is returning

It looks like we'll be meeting a second Red Woman too

Game Of Thrones Season 6 Episode 5 Preview

Rather staggeringly, next week's instalment of Game of Thrones will mark the halfway point of season six.

But what can we expect from the episode? Well, judging by HBO's newly-released preview for episode five 'The Door,' it seems things are going to get intense rather quick speed.

Following his return in the fourth episode 'Book of the Stranger',' Littlefinger will - as planned - be reunited with Sansa for the first time since handing her over to the Boltons. "Did you know about Ramsay?" she enquires bitterly, an unimpressed Brienne of Tarth by her side.

Whatever Lord Baelish has up his sleeve, he better make it count - especially with Jon Snow close by.

Intriguingly, it looks like fans are going to have to make room for a second Red Woman, this one based in Meereen. "Knowledge has made you powerful," she tells Tyrion and Lord Varys. "But there's still so much you don't know." With Melisandre seemingly content following Snow's resurrection, could this character throw a spanner in the works?

The preview's climax arrives with what looks to be a grandstanding moment involving one of Bran's visions; in it, he stands opposite a horde of white walkers - and before you ask, the Night's King is there.

Meanwhile, Yara Greyjoy continues her rise to main character status as she claims the Iron Islands' thrones and we'll be resuming the Arya and Jaqen two-hander in Braavos.

Since 'The Door' was announced as episode five's title, fans have been speculating as to which 'door' it could be referring to. Find out when it airs live on Sky Atlantic at 2am followed by a 9pm repeat on 23 May.
