‘Game of Thrones': Bran’s Visions Reveal Hodor’s Origin
At Castle Black, Sansa (Sophie Turner) gets a letter from Baelish (Aidan Gillen). She takes Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) to meet with him near the fortress. He tells her that he has brought The Vale’s army north to assist her. But she is furious with him for leaving her with Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) and forces him to speculate on what horrors he inflicted upon her.
But before Sansa can have him killed, he tells Sansa that her uncle, “Blackfish” Tully, has re-taken Riverrun with what remains of the Tully army.
Across the sea, Arya (Maisie Williams) is doing much better in her fight training now that she can see again, but still manages to get beaten up quite a bit by The Waif (Faye Marsay). Later, Jaquen (Tom Wlaschiha) tasks her with killing a local actress.
Arya attends the play, which tells the story of King Robert’s death and makes a mockery of her father, Ned. She returns to Jaquen with a plan, but begins to question why this woman must die.
Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) has another vision with the Three Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow). This time, he sees Children of the Forest kill a man by pushing a piece of dragon glass into his chest, turning the man into a White Walker.
When he awakens, he learns that the Children were at war with mankind and created the White Walkers to combat the encroachment of humanity on their lands.
