More big shocks and cliffhangers this week, with the welcome return of Arya, Bronn and Jaime, and even the Queen of Thorns (probably one of the best characters of the show).
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken seemed an ironic title as many characters succumbed to captors, guards and psychotic husbands - will they fight back?
Here's 10 things we learned this week:
1. Who is Arya? For all her talk of serving Jaquen H'ghar at the House of Black and White, Arya is still impatient; sick of scrubbing corpses (and who can blame her, that job is grim) she decides push for a promotion. After some confusing dialogue with The Waif (if you ask me she's definitely capable of poisoining) she played the Game with Jaquen - and it was interesting to see how she bent the truth as to how she arrived in Braavos and her fall from a little lady to a trainee assassin. Jaquen also challenged her when she says she hated the Hound. While he did take her captive, I think it's fair to say Arya held some begrudging respect for her burly kidnapper.
It turns out Arya is not ready to become 'noone' - but she is ready to become someone else, it seems. And that room, with its towering pillars of dead-eyed faces, was one of the creepiest Thrones locations yet.
2. Captor became captive. First stone men, now slave traders - it seems Jorah and Tyrion's luck has well and truly run out. And Jorah had to find out about the Night's Watch mutiny and his father's death from his captive. His pain was palpable. But things are about to get worse - the pair are bound for the fighting pits of Meereen, with Tyrion threatened with a swifter end en route. His frantic pleading and quick wits saved him once - will he get close enough to Daenerys to save himself once more?
3. Littlefinger revealed his plans. Oh Littlefinger, just when we think you've gone soft-hearted for Sansa, you sell her down the river to impress Cersei. Lord Baelish the Flesh Peddler reappeared in King's Landing to lay out his plans (or at least, it seemed that way - he could be plotting something else altogether) and shocker, he wants the top spot for himself. His strategy is to let Stannis and the Boltons slay each other, leaving a convenient power vacuum for him to steal. Cersei wants Sansa's head on a pike (and she'd have Petyr's too, if she knew what he'd done for House Stark) - but will Littlefinger deliver it?
4. Bronn and Jamie took on Oberyn's daughters. The battle for Myrcella began, and ended, as Bronn and Jaime took on Oberyn's daughters. After making a sneaky entrance 007 would be proud of (after stopping Bronn from concluding his rendition of 'The Dornishman's Wife'), the disguised duo found Myrcella in the arms of her betrothed, Tristane Martell. They're probably the only arranged marriage in the Seven Kingdoms that both parties are happy with. But Jaime's attempt to steal away his daughter were thwarted when Oberyn's brood attacked - and then the whole thing was shut down by the King's guards. Ellaria was arrested too - how will the King react to her plotting?
5. Long live the Queen of Thorns! Welcome back Lady Olenna, my word have you been missed. Back to rescue her grandson, the Queen of Thorns showed her spiky edge in a showdown with Cersei (and also told Margaery she looked 'appalling'). Cersei's face when she called her a 'tart' was a sight to be seen - Olenna meant business. But Cersei pulled out her usual card - she cannot control the Faith Militant.
6. Loras was betrayed... The High Septon's Holy Inquest was going swimmingly for the Tyrells... until Oliver decided to spill the beans. Who bribed you, Olly? Ser Loras' insistence he had never had relations with other men - in particular Renly Baratheon - had gone well, until he flew at Oliver and cooked his own goose. Even Cersei tried to help, suggesting that a Squire's word was an insult to House Tyrell.
7. ...and Margaery went down with him. Alas, Loras wasn't the only name to jump from Oliver's lips - the turncloak also sold out Margaery, who moments before had sworn to the gods that the charges against her dear brother were lies. Now both face trial - and with the High Sparrow free to prosecute (and persecute) as he chooses, it's fair to say not even Tommen can save them now. Is this the end of the Tyrells? Has Cersei really won?
8. Sansa took down Myranda. Sansa gets the prize for best bitchy line this week (I know, I know, even with the Queen of Thorns making an appearance). Creepy Myranda turned up to bathe her and chatter about Ramsay's penchant for 'the hunt' - but Sansa saw straight through her. "And how long have you loved him, Myranda." Sansa is nobody's fool now - and she even used her title again. "I am Sansa Stark of Winterfell, this is my home, and you can't frighten me." You go girl.
9. Ramsay took a bride. Sadly, all the sass in Winterfell couldn't prevent Sansa being sacrificed to Ramsay Bolton. The lantern-lit winter wedding had the atmosphere of a funeral as Reek/Theon led the bride to her smirking, psychotic fate (at least Reek got to have a wash and shave for the occasion though). When Reek introduced himself as Theon of House Greyjoy, I thought he'd had an epiphany for a moment - until realising it was probably Ramsay's idea, to torment Sansa even further. Myranda looked like she was ready to stab someone, too.
10. A horrible ending. We knew the wedding night was coming - but it didn't make it any easier to stomach. Poor, terrified Sansa was set upon by Ramsay, who flipped into evil husband mode within 10 minutes of the vows being made. With the added malice of making Reek/Theon stay and watch the brutality. Was anyone else willing him to charge forward and snap Ramsay's neck?
A shocking episode, for many reasons, and plenty of questions remain.
Is Jorah really destined for the pits, and Tyrion doomed? What will happen to Myrcella now? And what horrors do Margaery and Loras await at a High Sparrow trial?
I'm not sure I can wait until next week. As always, share your thoughts below.
