I was all set to give this episode to Jon and Ygritte, because you know, sex in a hot spring cave, but alas no. Because I forgot how goddamn awesome Jaime Mother Fucking (Sister Fucking really…) Lannister is in this episode
Jaime tells the story of why he killed Aerys Targaryen to Brienne and it’s, beautiful and heartbreaking and lovely. This is all after he’s a huge douche to Quyburn, but we’ll get to that later.
Jon and Ygritte get runner up though, because you know, sex in a hot spring cave.
Missandei and Grey Worm Watch
GREY WORM! He’s here, he’s pretty, he’s explaining that his name is lucky because it’s the name that he had the day he was freed. It’s so beautiful and special and awesome and I love it so much. OMG OMG OMG!
Sansa’s Agency Watch
Sansa tells Little Finger that she doesn’t want to leave with him. She should have stuck with that.
Arya Bad Ass Watch
She lunges at the hound when he kills Beric, but of course, Beric comes back, and resurection by the Lord of Light gets explained. This is important. Also, Gendry decides to stay with the Brotherhood, and he tells Arya that she could be his Lady and guys, I ship it SO HARD.
Who Was Jaime A Dick To?
This may be the last installment, unless he starts being a dick again in season 7, anyway, Jaime is a dick to Maester Quyburn which is like, totally warranted. He’s also king of dick to Brienne, but then he turns that one around.
Robb Is A King And Kind of Bad At It
So Greatjon Karstark killed Not-Tommen and the other one and Robb killed him for it. This lost him half the north. So he has to go suck up to the Freys. At least now he realizes that he’s really bad at being a king. That’s nice.
