Game of Thrones “Oathbreaker” gave us some more insight on character linage, Bran’s abilities and brought back some familiar faces.
*** Stop right here if you have not seen Sunday’s episode. MAJOR SPOILERS, OBVIOUSLY***
As we all know from last week’s episode, Jon Snow is alive and well. At least psychically. Mentally…. Well if you had just risen from the dead, how would you feel? Moments after Jon awakes, Melisandre is already trying to recruit him to be the new, “prince that was promised.” Slow your role girl. You don’t have a good track record in keeping said Prince safe and we just got him back. Jon then gets the best pep talk ever from Davos Seaworth telling him to go out and fail again.
Tyrion was not the only one with superb one-liners in this episode. Tormund Giantsbane jabs at the size of Jon’s “member” in this episode saying, “What kind of God would have a peck that small?” That takes the cake for one-liners thus far in the season. Olenna Tyrell also threw a jab Cersei’s way.
In this episode we saw the return of young, Ned Stark as he fights to get, whom we can only assume is Lyanna Stark, out of a tower. For those that have read the books, this directly correlates with the fan theory R + L = J, as in Lyanna Stark + Prince Rhaegar Targaryen = Jon Snow. This fan theory would mean that Jon isn’t the bastard child of Ned Stark and that he could be the heir to the Iron Throne. Is this the promise that Ned made to Lyanna when she was on her death bed? The second biggest bombshell of this sequence was that Ned Stark was not the swordsman he claimed to be. He didn’t even kill Sir Arthur Dayne. Howland Reed stabbed him in the back, then Ned proceeded to cut his throat. Like Bran, we were all pissed when the Three-Eyed Raven pulled him out of the vision. He quickly whisked young Bran away after he called out to his father, who may or may not have heard him calling his name before he ran into the tower.
Also, returning to the screen was Samwell Tarly. Good to see you old chap! Seasick and all he is in much better shape than Rickon Stark and Osha who were the “gifts” given to Ramsay. R.I.P Shaggydog. We can only hope and pray they do not meet the same fate as Ramsay’s family. But seeing how he treats his own family, there is not much hope for them.
Daenerys reached The Temple of the Dosh Khaleen (Vaes Dothrak). There she is stripped of her clothing and other belongings and told that by the other widows that the Khal’s are deciding her fate. Stating she would be lucky if they chose to let her live out her days with them, as she did leave the Khal’s and go off into the world on her own, which is forbidden.
Back in Mereen poor Tyrion was left alone with non-drinkers whilst Lord Varys was figuring out who is funding the Son’s of Harpies rebellion; The good masters of Astapor and The wise masters of Yunkai, with the help from their friends in Volantis.
Arya gets her sight back after some more vigorous training.
In the last moments of “Oathbreaker” we see Jon’s murderers receive death by hanging and Jon walk away from the Night’s Watch, ending his watch and leaving Eddison Tollett Castle Black.
On the next Game of Thrones:
- Sansa escapes Winterfell
- The return of Little Finger
- Jorah and Daario reach Vaes Dothrak to rescue Daenerys
- Cersei wants to “help” Margery Tyrell and stop her from having to purge her sins in front of the whole city
- Margery reunites with her brother
