Season VI53: Oathbreaker

➲ Full History

Davos Seaworth stares as Jon Snow wakes up in the Lord Commander’s chamber. Jon touches his stab wounds, and gasps, “I shouldn’t be here.” Astonished, Melisandre asks Jon what he saw after he died – and he responds, “nothing.” Davos requests the Red Woman leave them and tries to comfort Jon, who questions why he was brought back, and laments how he failed. "Go fail again,” Davos advises the young man. As Jon emerges from his room, the wildings and Night’s Watch gather in the courtyard, unsure what to make of the resurrected Lord Commander. Jon’s discomfort wanes slightly as he is embraced by Tormund and Edd.


Jon Snow

“I’d never do that to the father of my son.” –Gilly

Sam and Gilly

Gilly, elated by the adventure, sails to Oldtown with Samwell Tarly, who is wracked with seasickness. He confesses his plan for her and Little Sam: The Citadel won’t allow women so he’s taking her to his family in Horn Hill and will claim Gilly is his mistress and Little Sam is his bastard son. Gilly, upset at first, softens when Sam reminds her how much he cares for them. Referring to Sam as the father of her baby, she agrees to go.

“I was waiting for you.” –Three-Eyed Raven

Bran and Three-Eyed Raven

Bran Stark and the Three-Eyed Raven return to the past, this time watching as young Ned Stark and his men approach a tower protected by two of the Mad King’s Kingsguard. Bran immediately recognizes Ned's hero, Ser Arthur Dayne, “the best swordsman he ever saw.” Dayne takes up arms instead of telling Ned where his sister is, and Bran is shocked to see his father's legendary defeat of Dayne revealed as a lie: Ser Arthur Dayne had beaten Ned when Howland Reed – Meera’s father – stabbed Dayne in the back. Bran calls out to his father, prompting Ned to pause on the tower steps in confusion. When the Three-Eyed Raven pulls Bran back, the boy furiously demands answers. The Three-Eyed Raven always told him his powers couldn’t affect the past, but now Bran has seen they can. His tutor assures him he won't be in the cave forever, but before he leaves, he must learn everything.

“The true history of the world is the history of great conversations in elegant rooms.” –Tyrion Lannister

Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys is brought to Vaes Dothrak and the Temple of the Dosh Khaleen where her garments are stripped off and replaced with more appropriate attire. Aware of the life Daenerys had envisioned with Drogo, an elder priestess questions why Daenerys did not come to them directly after Drogo’s death. Daenerys states she does not belong there, but is surprised to learn that now the khals can decide whether she becomes Dosh Khaleen – or suffers a worse fate.

Vala, the Meereenese prostitute who helped the Sons of Harpy murder members of the Unsullied and Second Sons, is brought to Varys. He offers a large bag of silver and passage to Pentos for her and her son, in exchange for information.

Attempting to socialize with Missandei and Grey Worm, Tyrion is interrupted by Varys, who has discovered the former masters of Astapor and Yunkai, with help from Volantis, are funding the Sons of the Harpy. Not ready to commit to war, Tyrion asks Varys to send a message instead.

“I want to hear it.” –Cersei Lannister

In his laboratory, Qyburn hands out sweets to the children who served as Varys' “Little Birds,” bringing him information. As the children scamper off, Cersei explains that at her trial she will request trial-by-combat, and Ser Gregor will be her unbeatable champion. The queen mother instructs Qyburn to place Little Birds throughout Westeros – she wants to hear every whisper about her family.

Cersei Lannister

Escorted by the Mountain, Jaime and Cersei enter the Small Council to find that Grand Maester Pycelle, Mace and Olenna Tyrell, and Kevan Lannister, their uncle and now Hand of the King, have no interest in including them. “Seeing as you cannot make us leave,” says Cersei, “we had best get on with it.” Kevan agrees he cannot make them go, but makes his point by leaving himself, followed by the others.

King Tommen visits the Sept, insisting that the High Sparrow allow Cersei to see Myrcella’s resting place. The High Sparrow refuses but takes the time to explain his reasons to Tommen. "There is so much good in everyone," he tells the young king. "The best we can do is help each other to bring it out."

“If a girl is truly No One, she has nothing to fear.” –Jaqen H'ghar


Arya Stark

Inside the House of Black and White, Arya trains with the Waif who interrogates her about her family and "funny little" list. Arya confesses that although she left the Hound to die, she had removed him from her list beforehand. Certain Arya has left off a name, the Waif takes a swing, and is dismayed when the blind girl blocks it. Jaqen H’ghar asks Arya to tell him her name, and she responds she has none. The Faceless Man leads her to the poisoned fountain and hands her a cup. Hesitating at first, she drinks – and finds her sight restored. Jaqen asks her again for her name, and when she answers, “No One” this time, she believes it.

“Welcome home, Lord Stark.” –Ramsay Bolton

Rickon Stark

Smalljon Umber meets with Ramsay Bolton and Harald Karstark. Concerned about the number of wildlings Jon Snow allowed past the Wall, Smalljon asks for help should they come farther south. Unwilling to kneel before Ramsay, Smalljon offers a “gift” instead: Osha and Rickon Stark, with Shaggydog’s head as proof of their identity.

“I fought. I lost. Now I rest.” –Ser Alliser Thorne

Jon Snow

Thorne and his fellow mutineers stand on gallows in the Castle Black courtyard waiting to be hanged. As Jon asks for last words, Thorne is unrepentant, and Olly remains silent. Jon pauses, draws Longclaw and cuts the rope. He stares at his killers’ dead faces. Edd says they should burn the bodies, and Jon agrees that Edd should. He hands over his Lord Commander’s cloak, and gives Edd command of Castle Black: "My watch is ended."
