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


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


Dany"s return to lớn Slaver"s Bay came just on time, if not a little late and offered an interesting phản hồi on what types of leadership are effective sầu 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, khổng lồ keep them in their places. Whether that will be true for Westeros remains lớn be seen.

In finding the remaining villains, he reconnected Beric of the Brotherhood without Banners, who has been coming baông xã khổng lồ life since before Jon Snow made it cool.


The surviving murderers were hung for their violent crimes và 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 hyên lớn be more & lớn join them on their travels north, khổng lồ fight the Winter Winds.


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


After a healthy dose of "trò chơi of Thrones" violence courtesy of the un-dead Mountain, King Tommen, who now seems khổng lồ be even more of a puppet for the faith than ever, outlawed trials by combat. So now, instead of using her zombie champion khổng lồ free herself from the High Sparrow"s clutches in a duel 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 and "burn them all" before the season"s end.
