At Kings Landing

Trial of Cersei Lannister and Loras Tyrell was supposed to be held at Sept of Baelor in front of all the Seven septs. Everyone is getting ready to attend the event. But it looks like Cersei has got another plan. She’s not going  for her trial, instead she’s in a cool new military outfit. She also ordered The Mountain to stop Tommen from attending the trial. What it signals ? No one there at Sept of Baelor to whom Cersei likes. Is she planning to do something wrong at Sept of Baelor ? All answers are here.

Faith militants take Loras Tyrell to the Sept of Baelor for his trial. At the Sept of Baelor Margaery Tyrell, Kevan Lannister, Mace Tyrell, High Sparrow and others are present but no Cersei and Tommen, its suspicious. Loras confesses his crimes and sins before the Seven. Loras accepted that he is guilty of depravity, dishonesty, profligacy and arrogance. He said that his only remaining wish is to devote his life to the Seven. Loras abandons the Tyrell name and all that goes with it. He will renounce his Lordship and his claims on Highgarden and he will never marry. Faith militants drew the sign of Seven pointed star on his forehead. High Sparrow says that Once the Queen mothers trial is concluded, then Loras will be free to leave. High Sparrow says Lancel Lannister to go to Red Keep and bring Cersei Lannister for trial.

Meanwhile Qyburn is working on a devil strategy from the inside. His little birds first lure the Maestr Pycelle to the prison and killed him there, then they lead Lancel Lannister into a dark tunnel, right beneath the Sept of Baelor. There Lancel got stabbed by one of the little birds. Lancel found large containers of Wildfire and small candles were burning on the Wildfire. If fire touches the Wildfire it will blast. Lancel now is in torturous condition as he’s stabbed and he have to stop the fire to touch the Wildfire. But he unsucceeded. At Sept of Baelor Margaery understood that something is wrong as Cersei and Tommen are not there. But unfortunately she was late. Wildfire caught up the fire and a huge blast destroyed the entire Sept of Baelor. All people inside it burned alive to ashes in no time. I was Shocked. Margaery, Loras, Mace, Kevan and All Sparrows killed in a moment, wtf.

Cersei smiled by seeing destroyed Sept of Baelor. Now its time to punish and torture Septa Unella. Cersei paying back with same “Confessing” speech, Confess, Confess, Confess. When Cersei was septa Unella’s prisoner, Cersei said that her face would be the last thing she see before she died. Unella thinking that it all be over soon, but wait, who said that Cersei will give her an instant easy death. She sends The Mountain in to continue the torture which I am assuming is just a regular rape torture. We also witnessed the ugly face of the Mountain. He was looking very similar to one of wights.

Tommen on the other hand couldn’t bear the death of his wife Margarey Tyrell. He committed the suicide by throwing himself from one of the windows in his chamber. When Cersei finds that Tommen is no more, she ordered Qyburn to burn him and bury his ashes where the Sept once stood. He should be with his grandfather, his sister, his brother. Now since the Iron Throne can’t be left empty, So Cersei of House Lannister, first of her name  is now the Queen of Andals and the first men and the protector of the seven Kindoms. Jaime also reached there and he is finding the resemblance of Mad King in Cersei, I suspect.

At the Twins, Arya Stark murdered Walder Frey and his two sons

Walder Frey is celebrating the victory taking back Riverrun. He show it all like “his army took back Riverrun”, thinking that Lannisters and Freys 50-50 percent done the job, but the real credit goes to Lannisters for victory. Jamie says to Walder that Other houses don’t fear Freys, but the Lannisters. “Lannisters gave you the Riverrun to hold it. If they have to ride north and take them back for you everytime you lose, why do we need you ? “. Walder shocked.

While Walder Frey waits in the late night for his dinner, the serving wench revealed herself to be Arya Stark. The Pie which was Walder going to eat was made up of his two sons, whom Arya already killed. Arya Stark cuts the throat of Walder Frey and took the revenge of her brother Robb’s and her mother’s death.

Samwell Tarly reached the Citadel

Sam Tarly with Gilly and the little sam arrived at the Old Town where he will learn to be a Maester. One of the Maester attended there, Sam shows him the letter from the Lord Commander of Castle Black. The Maester is mad that his records are out of date to irregularity due chaos in North. The Maester says that the archmaester will discuss these irregularities with Sam, later.

In the meantime, Sam was allowed to use the library, but no woman and child is permitted there, so no for Gilly and Little Sam, they have to wait outside. Sam sees the Library, it was very huge, looked like all the books of worlds are there. Sam was very enthusiastic seeing the library. I’m sure he’ll be a great Maester.

At Winterfell, winter has finally come

Jon was having a chat with Lady Melisandre about his past. Ser Davos reached there, he has just now realised that it was Melisandre behind the princess Shireen’s death. She admitted that on her guide Shireen was burned at the stake because it was Lord’s wish. She says that the army was trapped and the horses were dying, burning Shireen was the only way to impress the Lord of light, wtf. If your Lord commands you to burn the children, then your Lord is Evil, Ser Davos says. How ironic that Jon is still alive because the Lord willed it. I don’t know what type of God is Lord of Light. As a punishment of her crime Jon ordered her to ride south and if she return to North ever, he’ll have her hanged as a murderer. Now the Red Woman is gone, I think she would meet up with the brotherhood without banners.

Sansa-Jon chat : Jon says that you’re the Lady of Winterfell. The battle was lost until Knights of the Vale rode in. They came because of her. Jon also asked if she trust Lord Baelish ? Sansa chuckles and replies that only a fool would trust Littlefinger. She told Jon about the raven came from the Citadel, the white raven. That means Winter is not coming but is here now.

Sansa-Baelish chat : Sansa was sitting under the tree (The tree with red leaves). Lord Baelish came there to talk with her. Sansa asked a simple question to him. What do you want ? and We found that Baelish wants to sit on the Iron Throne and Sansa by his side, Big dream, LOL. This time Sansa not gave a kiss to Baelish. She said its a pretty dream and then she leaves from there.

King in the North

Council was going to declare that who will be the new warden of the North. Lord Royce says that Knights of the Vale will not side with wildlings. But before any chaos, Jon stands and says that the Free Folks, the Northerners and the knights of the vale fought bravely and together and won. Ned used to say that we find our true friends on the battlefield. Jon says that they have to unite against the white walkers and winter is already here, this will last for long. All houses there discussing and murmuring on their own until the Lady Mormont  stood and gave a tremendous speech. She says House Manderly, House Glover and House Cerwyn refused the call when House Stark needed them most, but House Mormont remembers. The North remembers. They know the no king but the king in the north whose name is Stark. She doesn’t care if Jon is a bastard, Ned’s blood runs runs through his veins. Lady Mormont accepted Jon her King. Hearing this speech, all Northern houses realised that she’s right. Then all houses of North (not house Arryn) one by one accepted Jon snow as the King in the North. The King in the North, The King in the North.

Jon’s mother officially known now

Benjen Stark droped off the Bran Stark and Meera Reed somewhere near to the wall. Benjen can’t make it to other side of the wall as he is dead now and the Wall is protected by ancient magic which not allow to pass the dead. Benjen left them there and gone. Bran finds a tree, So that he could go back into his visions, he’s three eyed raven now, after all.

Bran back into his vision. Same place came where Ned defeated Ser Author Dayne with the help of Meera’s father. Ned enters inside that building to save her sister Lyanna Stark. Lyanna was lying on the bed and she’s injured also. Bran came to find that his aunt Lyanna was Jon’s mother. I already guessed before that Jon’s the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned’s sister Lyanna Stark. Actually Rhaegar raped Lyanna and as a result bastard Jon born. She tells Ned that he have to save her son (Jon). If Robert Baratheon finds that Jon is the son of Rhaegar, then he’ll have him executed. So Ned took all the burden and named Jon his Bastard.

In the Dorne

Lady Ollena was invited at the Dorne by Ellaria Sand. Ellaria invited Lady Ollena because they both need each other. The Lannisters have declared war on House Tyrell as Loras, Margaery and Mace Tyrell were burned at the Sept of Baelor on Cersei’s plan. They also have declared war on Dorne as Myrcella was poisoned by Ellaria Sand. So Enemy of my Enemy is my friend. Ellaria Sand already formed an alliance with Lord Varys, who shows up and says the Targaryen House words “Fire and Blood”. That means Targaryen, Tyrell, Martell and Grejoy are allies now.

In the Meereen

Daenerys is still getting ready to leave from Meereen, but first she has to decrease the extra baggage as they don’t have enough ships to take all the Dothraki, the Unsullied and the Second Sons at same time. Also someone must have to stay at Meereen so peace could be maintain while she go to Westeros. Therefore Daenerys commands Daario Naharis to stay at Meereen and keep peace there and the Bay of Dragons (No Slaver’s Bay anymore). I think Daenerys should not did this to her true lover Daario. She could take him with her and assign any other person to take care of Meereen. Daario was in self- pity, he didn’t want to stay there but to keep serving Daenerys. But commands are commands , Sorry Daario. 🙁

Later Daenerys admits to Tyrion Lannister that she loved Daario and said farewell and felt nothing. Just impatient to get on with it. Tyrion consoles her thats the kind of self-sacrifice that makes for a good ruler. Tyrion tells her that how he hadn’t believed in anything untill he met her. Daenerys named him the hand of the Queen and gave him the hand’s badge. Tyrion is very emotional now that there is someone in the world who cares about him.

NEWS : Rumors are in air that producers of Game of Thrones decided to make two more seasons. I hope it prove to be true.
