Conspicuously absent from “The Red Woman” was Bran Stark, who didn’t make a single appearance last year but has been heavily featured in the advertising for season six. His ability to warg — or enter the mind of other living creatures and control their actions — is presumed by many to play a major role as the show nears its final act.

“Home” airs this Sunday on HBO. See the rest of the new photos below.
