Lady Crane, who clearly took the acting tips Arya had offered her, after another ovation-worthy performance, stumbled across the bleeding girl in her dressing room và stitched up her wounds. For the first time since she was home in Winterfell in Season 1, the hardened youngster received some motherly love. Their bonding was cut short by the Waif, who murdered the actress & then launched into a chase through the streets of Braavos in her efforts khổng lồ take down Arya.


While she did seem a bit worse for wear, it became clear that Arya was actually leading the Waif into a dark room where she had stashed her sword, Needle. Having been trained lớn fight during her blind phase, Arya opted to take advantage of that particular skill set & crossed blades with the Waif under the cover of pitch black darkness.

When the lights returned viewers found themselves in the Hall of Faces & along with Jaqen H"gar, followed a trail of blood ending with the Waif"s bloodied face among those that have already passed on. He seemed impressed by Arya at episodes" end, but she chose to reclaim her identity & told the Many Faced God her time in the temple had come khổng lồ end.


Meanwhile, Brienne & Podrick arrived in Riverrun with the hopes of convincing the Blackfish, Sansa"s great uncle, khổng lồ join their efforts lớn take the North back from the Boltons.


Now, before there was Briemund (the popular couple name for the lady knight & the wildling, Tormund) there was Brienne & Jamie. The duo, who spent the better parts of Seasons 2 và 3 together, reunited on the outskirts of the Lannister"s siege of Riverrun. Despite being on opposite sides of the conflict, the two proved their friendship and mutual respect still burns strong.

Jamie, after telling Brienne he was proud of her for finding Sansa và fulfilling her duty to Lady Stark "against all odds," agreed to lớn allow her access to Riverrun.


He agreed should that Brienne be able lớn convince the Blackfish khổng lồ give up the castle, he would allow them safe passage to lớn the North so the Blackfish và his troops could join the fight to take back Winterfell. The Blackfish refused the offer và in the end, Lord Edmure Tully, who spent years as a prisoner of the Freys, took back his place as the rightful Lord of Riverrun & returned it to the Lannisters and the Freys out of spite for his uncle.


The Blackfish met his end in his castle, just as he promised he would last week, & Jamie watched as the lady knight và her squire made their escape. He waved to lớn Brienne like an old friend, in spite of their ever-clashing interests.

This week"s trip to Braavos offered a uniquely pleasant scene involving Tyrion, Missandei & Greyworm, who, at this point in the episode, were still hoping for Daenerys" quick return.


After convincing the Khaleesi"s most trusted counselors to take a drink of wine in their Queen"s honor, Tyrion revealed he hoped to own a vineyard once the Last Targaryen takes over the Seven Kingdoms. The trio began to lớn settle into their revelry but the Masters, eager lớn reclaim their slaves, launched an attack on Meereen.


Dany"s return khổng lồ Slaver"s cất cánh came just on time, if not a little late và offered an interesting phản hồi on what types of leadership are effective in the game of thrones. Tyrion"s strategizing, negotiating và networking seemed it would take earlier this season, but the Masters proved it would take a conqueror, lượt thích the Mother of Dragons, to keep them in their places. Whether that will be true for Westeros remains to be seen.

The Hound this week made quick work of his revenge. With a literal ax khổng lồ grind in hand, he took out the handful of the men who murdered his religious brotherhood. In finding the remaining villains, he reconnected Beric of the Brotherhood without Banners, who has been coming back khổng lồ life since before Jon Snow made it cool.


The surviving murderers were hung for their violent crimes and the Hound snatched a pair of boots off one of them before they met their end. It served as a reminder for how violent Sandor Clegane has been, but Beric begged him to lớn be more & to join them on their travels north, to lớn fight the Winter Winds.


Next week will mark the Battle of the Bastards, one of two major throw downs fans have been looking forward to this season. The other, the Clegane Bowl, at this point doesn"t seem like it will be happening.


After a healthy dose of "Game of Thrones" violence courtesy of the un-dead Mountain, King Tommen, who now seems to be even more of a puppet for the faith than ever, outlawed trials by combat. So now, instead of using her zombie champion to free herself from the High Sparrow"s clutches in a duel to lớn the death for truth, Cersei will have lớn use her Plan B.

and as it turns out, Plan B may be even better than Plan A considering the rumors about the thousands of barrels of wildfire stashed under the castle are "more than rumors," which means Cersei could go the way of the Mad King và "burn them all" before the season"s end.
