WARNING: Spoilers Ahead!
Jon Snow’s Return
Jon Snow is back and he’s back with a vengeance, in the classic calm demeanor befitting the bastard of Winterfell. After asking him what he remembers about his death, his only reply was that Olly drove a knife into his heart.
He later executed four of the traitors including Thorne and Olly, both of whom were defiant until they were twitching at the end of a rope. In an unexpected move, Jon gives Eddison Tollett his cloak and proclaimed him the new Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
Ned Stark vs. Ser Arthur Dayne
Bran’s new vision is perhaps the most talked about scene of “Oathbreaker” due to the fact it shows, albeit a fraction, how Lyanna Stark was rescued. After battling and dispatching Ser Arthur Dayne with the help of Howland Reed, Ned heard a woman’s scream.
Curious, Bran proceeded to follow his father but was stopped by the Three-Eyed Raven, who told him he had seen enough. Why is the Raven intent on keeping Bran in the dark regarding what happened? It seems there is something more to the rescue than what Ned Stark has told him in his stories.
Rickon Stark and Osha Are Handed To Ramsay
As fans of ‘Game of Thrones’ predicted, the gift Ramsay received was none other than Rickon Stark along with Osha. Smalljon Umber intended to use them to seal an alliance with the Boltons and employ their aid should the bands of wildlings currently in Castle Black attack his land.
He proved to Ramsay that it is the real Rickon Stark by showing him the severed head of Rickon’s direwolf, Shaggydog. Smalljon seemed confident that betraying the Starks would not cause a backlash, despite his father, a Stark loyalist, is still alive. This might indicate that Greatjon Umber is still in danger and would be dead in the near future.
Varys’ News Regarding The Sons of the Harpy
Having captured the prostitute who aided in the murder of one of Daenerys’ Unsullied, Varys asks her for her cooperation. Using her child as a bargaining chip and promising to send her to Pentos for protection, he got the information he wanted.
The ones funding the Sons of the Harpy are the masters in Yunkai and Astapor as well as the slavers from the city of Volantis. Tyrion and the rest discussed how to deal with them without compromising the security of Mereen.
These new revelations from “Oathbreaker” have great implications as far as the story is concerned. With the factions currently under new leadership, chaotic events are on the horizon.
