HBO has released cryptic descriptions for two more episodes of Game of Thrones.

The May 15 episode “Book of the Stranger” and the May 22 episode “The Door” now have official synopses. As usual, they’re quite vague and are sure to cause plenty of speculation — especially for “The Door,” an episode title that has had hardcore A Song of Ice and Fire fans scratching their heads and coming up with all sorts of theories.

“Book of the Stranger”: “Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) strikes a deal. Jorah (Iain Glen) and Daario (Michiel Huisman) undertake a difficult task. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey) try to improve their situation. Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Dan Sackheim.”

“The Door”: “Tyrion seeks a strange ally. Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) learns a great deal. Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) goes on a mission. Arya (Maisie Williams) is given a chance to prove herself. Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Jack Bender.”
