'Game of Thrones' Sneak Peek: Sansa Seeking Vengeance Will Amp Things Up (VIDEO)

It has seemed like episodes 1 and 2 of season 5 of Game of Thrones has featured, well, a lot of building up and catching up. But the promo for episode 3, "High Sparrow," seems to be setting fans up for the good guys to finally take a stand. Petyr Baelish seems to have some scheme in mind for Goth Sansa, her sister Arya's training begins, and Tyrion shows his face in public! Check out the quick promo and official episode synopsis. Spoilers up until episode 2 and minor book spoilers ahead!


In King’s Landing, Queen Margaery (Natalie Dormer) enjoys her new husband. Tyrion and Varys walk the Long Bridge of Volantis.

We can only wait and see what wrath Cersei will unleash if she ever catches Margaery "enjoying" young Tommen. No doubt, from the previews and photos, Margaery and Tommen will tie the knot.

The High Sparrow is the High Septon and leader of the Faith of the Seven. Fancy, huh? The current High Septon was elected when the previous one was killed and the sparrows, essentially the poorest of the Holy Faith (remember, that's what Cersei's cousin Lancel is), threatened the leadership with violence if they did not elect him. In A Feast for Crows, Cersei visits the High Sparrow to have him bless Tommen and forgive the huge a mount of debt they owed the Faith. This is allowed, but only if the Faith can rebuild their army.

Well anyway, in other news, fans will get their first peek of the season at Winterfell. If you recall from last season, the gross Boltons currently rule there, with Theon Greyjoy accompanying them. Perhaps Littlefinger wants Sansa to take them on somehow? Then Arya would join in as a Faceless Man? That'd be awesome to watch.

And Jon Snow, though he knows nothin', somehow finds himself Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. As he'll soon find out, like all the other characters before him, sometimes "ruling" is not as fun nor easy as it may initially seem ... but as Jaqen H'ghar quips, "All men must serve."

Be sure to check out the preview:
