Arya Stark is on her way to the free city of Braavos, Daenerys sits in Meereen, with her formidable army of the Unsullied, while Drogon is still missing. Meanwhile, Jaime frees Tyrion from his cell after Oberyn loses against Ser Gregor Clegane (the Mountain) and he is to be executed. Tyrion then flees Kings Landing after killing his father with a crossbow, with the help of Varys, despite not knowing his true intentions.
With Tywin Lannister dead, the capital is vulnerable and Stannis Baratheon has managed to stop the Wildlings’ attack on the wall. The real question is if Mance Rayder will bend the knee. And, if Mance Rayder refuses will the Wildling’s fight for Stannis? At the same time Cersei fears the fate of Tommen as Margaery Tyrell seduces him. Another impending doom that awaits the capital is from the Martells, Oberyn’s death definitely calls for vengeance.
The North, which is larger than the other 6 kingdoms combined has been taken over by Roose Bolton with the help of his no longer bastard son Ramsay Bolton. With winter coming, this doesn’t seem like a particularly wise idea, although with George R. R. Martin, you can never really say.
Baelish and Sansa are in still in Vale, as Sansa’s testimony saved Petyr even though he pushed Lysa Arryn out of the Moon Door.
I’m eager to see what Arya Stark faces when she reaches Braavos, and also to see if the Khaleesi can actually get a control her Dragons. The treachery and the strife in Westeros and Essos for power is little absurd, considering the number of people who die in any given episode, I wonder if there will be anyone left to rule over by then end of it. I don’t know what the commoner’s of these lands feel, but if the theme was to be reinterpreted from their perspective, or be played by the commoners themselves, it may be something like this:
