'Game of Thrones' Episode 8 Synopsis Teases Tyrion's Return
Tyrion has been missing in action in the last two episodes of "Game of Thrones," but the wily Lannister will be back in episode 8.
HBO released the official synopsis for "No One," and it's as cryptic as previous descriptions.
While Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) weighs his options, Cersei (Lena Headey) answers a request. Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) plans bear fruit. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a new test. Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod.
(Interestingly, the network did not release the synopsis for the crucial episode 9, even though it's been doling out these summaries two at a time.)
Last we saw Tyrion, his bargain with the slave masters had created a tenuous peace in Meereen. He then forged an alliance with the Red Priestess Kinvara, who believed Daenerys was "the one who was promised."
So, it seems his "plans bear fruit." That could mean that Kinvara and her fellow Lord of Light followers have been successful in rousing support for Daenerys. Stability in Meereen would pave the way for Khaleesi to finally make her way to Westeros. And conveniently enough, Theon and Yara's Ironborn ships are on their way to her now.
As for the rest of the synopsis, it seems Cersei's trial by combat may take place, while Jaime must decide what to do about the Blackfish and Riverrun. As for Arya, well, she isn't dead yet if she has to face a new test. Perhaps she'll receive some help ... maybe from that acting troupe? At the least, she's able to do some parkour on the roofs of Braavos, judging by the teaser promo:
"Game of Thrones" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
