Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Daenerys easily conquers Meereen and shows just what she's prepared to do to those who defy her. Bronn tells Jaime he is certain Tyrion had nothing to do with Joffrey's death.

Jaime asks Brienne to find Sansa and gives her his new sword, which she names Oathkeeper. Olenna counsels Margaery as to the next steps needed for her to remain Queen. At Castle Black, Jon Snow receives permission to take volunteers 60 miles north to stop their former members who rebelled from talking to Mance Rayder's army. Bran is taken prisoner by Karl Tanner and the mutineers who have taken over Craster's Keep. The identity of Joffrey's killers is revealed. Written by garykmcd

In the scene where Brienne and Jaime are say their farewells, the camera pans out to reveal Jaime wearing his sword on his left side. For accurate efficiency of unsheathing a sword, it should be worn on his right side, since he now uses his left hand for sword fighting. See more »

Another great episode despite one nitpick
22 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oathkeeper is another great episode. It does a nice job continuing where it left off in the last three episodes and the characters are still relatable.

The storyline is still well-written, the script is interesting enough, the characters and their relationships continue to be fresh, the directing and editing is sharper, the music score from Ramin Djawadi is still gorgeous as is the scenery, and the dialog is solid. My only quibble is that it doesn't quite reach the same level as episode 1 and 2 in the writing department, although it's not exactly terrible because it's still well-written. So, overall, another great episode despite one nitpick.
