Sparrows, beware the Mountain!

"Game of Thrones" released five images from season 6, episode 8, which is titled "No One." Yesterday, the show revealed the episode's synopsis, which teased the return of Tyrion Lannister after an absence in the last two installments.

One of the episode 8 photos shows Tyrion walking and talking with the ever-clever Varys in the streets of Meereen. Though both look skeptical, the scene around them seems almost peaceful, indicating that the unrest in Meereen may finally be over:

The other images are paired off. One set previews the action at Riverrun, where Brienne reunites with Jaime. However, these former allies may find themselves on opposite sides, since Jaime is there to besiege Brynden "Blackfish" Tully, while Brienne is sworn to the service of the Blackfish's niece, Sansa Stark:

The last two photos hint at a major confrontation between Cersei's champion, the revived Mountain, and the Faith Militant's Sparrows, including Cersei's cousin/former lover Lancel Lannister:

With only three episodes left in the season, "Game of Thrones" appears to be gearing up for some major conflicts. The all-important episode 9's title was announced earlier today as "Battle of the Bastards," which likely refers to Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton.

"No One" airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
