“Game of Thrones” episode 6 ‘Blood of my Blood’ has just ended with Daenerys Targaryen giving a speech about her coming invasion on top of Drogon. With the promotional video for episode 7 released, it’s time to find out what can be expected from the episode interestingly entitled ‘The Broken Man?”
The 40-second clip prominently displays the negotiations conversations between Jaime Lannister and Brynden The Blackfish Tully. It is safe to assume that the Freys, unable to find the allies they need in the Riverlands has enlisted the help of the Lannisters to recapture Riverrun.
Did the Freys scrap the plan to use Edmure Tully as a bargaining chip or does the Lannister Army merely serve as insurance should the Blackfish reject their offer? Either way it seems the Freys offered something to the Lannisters in order for them help them retake Riverrun considering that they are pretty much occupied with the affairs at King’s Landing.
According to the Blackfish, the war is not over as long as he is standing which means that for them, the War of the Five Kings never ended with the Red Wedding. Walder Frey’s sons also revealed that it is not just House Tully that are rising up against them, the other river lords have joined the Blackfish and that the Brotherhood without Banners have turned the small folk against them.
Interestingly, the Brotherhood without Banners is once again mentioned in season 6. With Thoros of Myr set to return in “Game of Thrones” season 6, this is not a surprise although what is surprising is what he could possibly do.
Since everyone, dead or alive, is returning in the series there’s one possible returnee that has very close ties to Riverrun: Catelyn Stark. Lady Stoneheart from the novels could possibly return in the upcoming episode and be the saving grace for House Tully considering their dire situations.
From what viewers know of “Game of Thrones” after six seasons, is that there is no such thing as coincidences. With Thoros of Myr’s to return and the seat of House Tully back into the spotlight, Lady Stoneheart is the only logical surprise the series can pull out of the bag. Certainly, it would be weird if we see a headless Robb Stark instead of a near headless Catelyn Tully show up.
