"How many men do we have in the North to fight him?" While he was recovering in bed, an assassin was sent to kill him, carrying this very expensive Valyrian Steel dagger, which at the time belonged to Robert Baratheon.
And then Bran hits him with the "Chaos is a ladder" comment. But, while some may say "Bran is off his nut" (a direct quotation), what's worse is that Bran is nearly too sane.
Before Meera Reed bid goodbye and before Arya met him in the Winterfell godswood, Bran Stark was paid a visit by Littlefinger, trying to hatch another one of his little plots. If there's one person who has refused to bend the knees, it's Jon Snow and much later in the preview we see her confronting Jon with one of her dragons. We need to do the same if we're going to survive. They go meet with Bran, who is becoming more robotic by the minute with all the memories he is now responsible more.
Sansa also blamed Arya for the death of her direwolf, Lady. Whichever it is, we know that Bran gave it to her for a reason. Now that she's got both Needle and the dagger, she's bound to become an even more deadly assassin (as her practice fight with Brienne of Tarth only proved). Sansa, on the other hand, looks perplexed. Still, it was hard not to shed a tear when Arya finally hugged her older sister again. Her frustration is felt and subsequently taken out on Jaime's army.
The new season of "Game of Thrones" started off with Daenerys heading back to her family's ancestral home, Dragonstone while the Starks are preparing to fend off the White Walkers shortly after they reclaimed Winterfell from the villainous Ramsay Bolton.
Speaking of Jon, it's great that he's finally sort of convinced Dany that White Walkers are as real as dragons.
If Jon doesn't bend the knee, acknowledging Dany as Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, she will likely retaliate in some way. It seems Arya could have a huge role to play in Jon Snow's-and really, all of Westeros's-war against them. "But if you use them to melt castles and burn cities, you're not different, you're just more the same".
Jon, who's already explored the caves looking for dragonglass, leads Daenerys through the rocks to where the Children of the Forest have drawn their prehistoric art centuries ago ("Always the artists"). First he looks hurt, and then the hurt turns to anger. "Your strategy has lost us the Iron Islands, Dorne and the Reach", she says. Golden Caravan - Good news for longtime readers of TBL - with all this gold being taken from the Lannister army, Game of Thrones can now be considered a heist movie.
If Drogon doesn't die, it's possible that this weapon will find a way to take down either Viserion and Rhaegal, because it just seems unlikely - especially considering the show's body count - that all three dragons will escape unscathed, not when we're nearing the end of the show.
