New Photos from This Week's 'Game of Thrones' Tease the Return of Old Favorites

Welcome back, Blackfish.

Warning: This article features potential spoilers for this week's episode of Game of Thrones.

It looks like Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones is going to feature several familiar faces. HBO has released the first photos from the episode, and the shots point to the return of two key characters: Bronn, Jamie's steadfast sidekick, and Brynden Tully, also known as the Blackfish.

IGN points out that we haven't seen Bronn since he and Jaime Lannister came back from Dorne, and we haven't seen the Blackfish since the fateful Red Wedding, which he managed to escape. Now, we've learned that the Blackfish has taken back Riverrun, and Jon Snow and Sansa Stark are about to enlist his help to take back the North. 

The network also released a cryptic description of the episode, which is called "The Broken Man:"

"The High Sparrow eyes another target. Jaime confronts a hero. Arya makes a plan. The North is reminded."

Here's Brynden Tully from Sunday's episode:

We'll get to see Margaery Tyrell reunite with her grandmother, while the new religious leadership keeps a watchful eye over them:

We'll also see Cersei, who is probably plotting her trial by combat, with the Mountain by her side: 

And here's Sansa, Jon, and Davos talking to Robett Glover of House Glover, a character we haven't met on the show yet:
