At Castle Black, Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane and a few Rangers head north of the Wall. Master Aemon has reached the end of his days and Sam gets a warning. Stannis and his army face the ravages of winter and Ser Davos recommends they return to Castle Black. At Winterfell, Sansa begs a terrified Theon to help her escape but he proves an inadequate ally. Tyrion and Ser Jorah are sold at a slave market. In Meereen, Daenerys gets unexpected advice from Daario. In King's Landing, Lady Olenna calls on the High Sparrow to seek her grandchildren's release but gets no satisfaction. She may have found an ally. A gloating Cersei visits Margaery in the cells below the Red Keep but the High Septon has a surprise for her. In Dorne, Jaime sees Myrcella who makes it clear that she considers Dorne her home and that she has no intention of leaving. Written by garykmcd

This episode represents a turn for the worse for some of the characters - but there's also some newfound light in the darkness.
