'Game of Thrones' Season 3 finale preview: Stark banners burn and Theon's sister returns
When the Red Wedding happened at the end of the "Game of Thrones" Season 3 episode "The Rains of Castamere," audiences didn't get to see how the rest of the world responded to that surprise betrayal. It seems as though those reactions will be a big part of the Season 3 finale, "Mhysa." In a promo for the upcoming episode, Tyrion says, "The Northerners will never forget" -- and hopefully they won't.
Beyond the Starks, there are plenty more storylines to tie up. King's Landing was a setting noticeably absent from "The Rains of Castamere," and Joffrey, Tyrion, Tywin, Cersei and Sansa all look to have roles to play in "Mhysa." So too does Daenerys, who has gathered her army and her dragons for what looks to be an attack. But why does she need to attack anyone if she's already conquered Qarth, Astapor and Yunkai? Then there's Stannis, who got the first death he wished to the Lord of Light for to come true.
A surprising face that appears in this preview is that of Theon's sister Yara. Though she was talked about a lot during his storyline earlier this season, she hasn't actually appeared in Season 3 until now. Hopefully that means Theon's captor will finally be revealed as well.
"Game of Thrones'" Season 3 finale airs Sunday June 9 on HBO at 9 p.m. ET.
