6/9: Updated with more photos!
Official episode synopsis: While Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) weighs his options, Cersei (Lena Headey) answers a request. Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) plans bear fruit. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a new test.
Cersei will finally be choosing violence in episode 8. Will it be directed immediately and fatally at Lancel? Her cousin/former lover/enemy certainly is risking his life by trying to take on Cersei and the Mountain.Brienne is back in action this week! With a Lannister flag behind her, you’ll note, which suggests that she’s arrived at Riverrun. A tense reunion with Jaime Lannister is overdue. Tyrion and Varys have been missing as well these last couple weeks. Here we see them strolling the streets of Meereen, looking very much the noblemen this time. Everything looks pleasant and fairly calm, so clearly something terrible is about to happen in this place. Update: more photos courtesy of Farfarawaysite!
We see that Brienne and Pod have arrived at Riverrun. The inevitable meetup between Jaime and Brienne is one fans have been looking forward to for ages.
Cersei with her backup (The Mountain and Qyburn) look to be approaching the throne. Will we finally get official news or plans about that trial Cersei has mentioned so often? Going by the marks on the Mountain’s armor, it looks like this takes place after the likely altercation with the Faith Militant.

A similar shot of Lancel to one further up, when someone’s choosing violence and someone else will not be having a good day:
We’re back to Meereen this week, checking in with Missandei, looking rather serious:
Another new red priestess on the scene in Meereen this season, played by Melanie Liburd. Earlier this season, the High Priestess Kinvara agreed to send more of her followers out to preach the word of Daenerys:
Tyrion and Varys are walking through the square where the priestess is preaching. Is Tyrion not a fan of her words? Between Kinvara, the red priest, and the Volantis priestess last year, it seems as though all the followers of R’hllor have unsettled Tyrion.
The Waif and her bloody knife, after her attempt on Arya’s life last episode. She doesn’t look confident or smug anymore:
