A bewildered Jon Snow rises from the dead, greeted by an equally baffled Melisandre and Ser Davos. Sam and Gilly endure seasickness en route to the Citadel. He tells her that she will stay with his family in Horn Hill instead. Bran’s visions of the past continue, with Ned Stark as a young man trying to rescue his sister Lyanna at the Tower of Joy. Bran calls out to him, and he appears to have heard him shout his name. Daenerys is brought to Vaes Dothrak with the other widows. Varys finds out that the Sons of the Harpy rebellion was funded by the masters in Yunkai, Volantis, and Astapor. Jaime and Cersei start plotting their revenge by trying to regain some leverage in the Small Council, but they’re finding it difficult to do so. A frustrated Tommen faces off with the High Sparrow, but his efforts are in vain. The Waif goes on torturing Arya, who is starting to adapt well to her blindness. Passing Jaqen’s test, she regains her eyesight. Back in Winterfell, Osha and Rickon are captured and brought to Ramsay.
I think I’d be pissed and scared shitless too if I were Jon Snow. Like, come on guys. Seriously? Freedom from this wretched place, and you dare bring me back? But I’d have to say, hanging that old jerk is plain cathartic. Olly, not so much, although he’s a jerk too. Wait, so Bran’s excursions to the past can actually affect what was happening? Whoa, we’re talking time travel now? Shit just got real. By shit, I mean the Grandfather Paradox and all those crazy alternate timeline kind of shit. Dragon Mama, you don’t have to read all your titles out loud every time you introduce yourself. It’s time consuming, and some people don’t really give a damn. You sound like an entitled name-dropping Millennial. Argh, Baby Boy Lannister. How gullible are you? If Joffrey Bieber was here, that effing High Sparrow’s head would be on a pike by now. Anyway, I’m getting tired of the “The Girl Has No Name” game. Just give Baby Girl Stark her revenge plot, please? And oh, Rickon is now all grown up. It’s been a while since we last saw him and Osha.
