Daenerys easily conquers Meereen and shows just what she's prepared to do to those who defy her. Bronn tells Jaime he is certain Tyrion had nothing to do with Joffrey's death.

The episode title refers to the sword Jaime gives to Brienne as he sends her out to look for Sansa and Arya Stark. Jaime is known as an oathbreaker since he once killed the king he had sworn to protect. However, giving his sword to Brienne shows that he intends to keep his oath to keep Catelyn Stark's daughters safe, so Brienne appropriately names it 'Oathkeeper'. See more »
In the scene where Brienne and Jaime are say their farewells, the camera pans out to reveal Jaime wearing his sword on his left side. For accurate efficiency of unsheathing a sword, it should be worn on his right side, since he now uses his left hand for sword fighting. See more »
So much going on. Jaime comes to visit Tyrion who is falsely imprisoned in a dungeon, living in filth. Cersei has accused him of Joffrey's murder, but it must be hard for even she to logically think he is guilty. She hates him for his truthfulness and his smugness. He also knows about her incestuous trysts with her brother. She has gone into protective mode for her remaining son, feeling he may also be in danger. He gets a nocturnal visit from Margery who plays on his adolescent being. He is not like his brother, at least at this point, but he has to know that Grandpa is pulling the strings. Meanwhile, Dany and the gang finally arrive at the Meereen fortress and her forces sneak in and gain the trust and aid of the slaves. Those who crucified slave children pay a price for their evil as well. Brienne is enlisted to find and save Sansa. There are numerous other things going on including a group of cannibals joining forces with the Wildings, doing horrible things to people just for their own evil purposes. Once again they have set up a wonderful set of questions that need answering in upcoming episodes.
