Characters just keep coming back this season, don’t they? Jon Snow breathed again, Benjen Stark saved Bran, and now the Hound has returned. (So… all men must survive?) In the seventh episode of Game of Thrones‘ sixth season, the Hound’s next move is left open-ended, but seeing as he’s wandering the Riverlands, what if he runs into everyone else — that is, Jaime, Bronn, Brienne, Pod, the Blackfish, Edmure, etc. etc. — over in Riverrun? And how will the Brotherhood Without Banners come into play?

In EW’s latest episode of Game of Theories above, we tackle these questions and more, including what we can probably expect will happen in King’s Landing, now that it’s clear Queen Margaery is playing a long con. That one’s a solid theory; less solid is my crackpot idea that maybe Arya — the latest stabbed Stark — might take a detour far from her quest to return to Westeros. Think of it this way: Who else has been trying to cross the Narrow Sea all this time but couldn’t manage to do so? How crazy would it be for Arya to find her way to Daenerys? Essos may be a huge continent, but it looks like plenty of our favorite Game players are making their way there.

For our other burning questions from this season, watch earlier episodes of Game of Theories here.
