Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) meets her future. Bran meets the past. Tommen confronts the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). Arya (Maisie Williams) trains to be No One. Varys (Conleth Hill) finds an answer. Ramsay gets a gift.
Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Dan Sackheim.
So we have Dave Hill, who wrote last season’s “Sons of the Harpy” writing next week’s episode, “Home” which will feature the return of both Bran Stark and Balon Greyjoy.
Benioff and Weiss will be writing the third episode of the season, where Bran will be meeting the past. Flashbacks are Coming! But as usual, many of the episode phrases and sentences are so vague as to be useless. “Ramsay gets a gift.” Well if there’s anyone who deserves no gift, it’s Ramsay.
