'Game of Thrones' Sneak Peek: Daenerys Faces Her Biggest Challenge Yet (VIDEO)

game of thrones sons of the harpyGame of Thrones season 5 has gotten off to a rather interesting start, deviating from the source material more than ever before (which many are considering a good thing) and taking a life of its own. Last week, fans got one of the biggest twists ever with an unexpected proposal, and a main character finally found herself at home. Daenerys and Tyrion, two fan favorites, however, found themselves in a bit of trouble. This week on "Sons of the Harpy," we'll get more of a look at what happens after Dany's political blunder in Meereen as well as the Sand Snakes in Dorne. Some minor book SPOILERS ahead!

Here is the official episode description:

The Faith Militant grow increasingly aggressive. Jaime [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau] and Bronn [Jerome Flynn] head south. Ellaria [Indira Varma] and the Sand Snakes vow vengeance.

Couldn't forget about the consequences of Oberyn Martell's brutal death from last season, right? It seem that Ellaria will want to kill Myrcella, Cersei's daughter, as punishment. In another huge deviation from the book, Jaime does not go to Riverrun, but to Dorne with Bronn to save Myrcella instead.

Speaking of Cersei, she and the High Sparrow, who will most likely replace the High Septon (who was caught in Littlefinger's whore house last week), will try to form an alliance, but it seems that the High Sparrow may have something else up his humble sleeve.

The question of how Daenerys will deal with the revolting Sons of the Harpy will also be revealed this week. It could be argued that GoT is lacking in action this season -- this might be the fight to get things started. Also, fans of course are desperate to know if Jorah Mormont is actually taking Tyrion to Daenerys, or perhaps he'll take him to Cersei and get that lordship that's been promised instead.

And one of the biggest questions from last week: Will Sansa really have to marry Ramsay, the most disgusting character on GoT? If she does, will fans be able to deal with watching him torment her if producers decide to go that way? Or will she be able to plot from within and overtake him? Will she recognize Reek from their time at Winterfell together? So many questions ... that cannot be answered with a quick Google search like usual, as none of this has happened in the books!

Do you think Sansa will have to go through with marrying Ramsay?
