Having demanded a trial by combat, Tyrion must now find someone to fight for him. Jaime would gladly do it but admits that he cannot wield a sword effectively with his left hand. Bronn, who has fought for him once before, has accepted the Queen Regent's offer of an arranged marriage with a noblewoman and so is not available. Tyrion finds a champion in someone unexpected. Brienne and Pod stop at an inn and meet Arya's old friend, Hotpie, who tells them she's alive and probably heading to the Eyrie. Daenerys takes Daario into her bed but seeks advice on ruling from her most trusted source. At the Eyrie, Peter Baelish has shocking news for both Sansa and his wife Lysa. Written by garykmcd

Sansa Stark: All right.
Robin Arryn: It can go in here in this big tower.
[Robin points at one of the towers of the snow castle, and carelessly ruins it]
Sansa Stark: Careful! You've ruined it. Now I'm going to have to rebuild the whole thing.
[Sansa and Robin stand up]
Robin Arryn: I didn't ruin it.
Sansa Stark: You did.

Shocking!! GRRM is the most ruthless person ever.

No Spoilers ahead!!

After his great speech in the last episode, and on his demand of trial by combat, Tyrion is rescued to his cell. Jaime comes to meet him there and tells him how he's lost this golden opportunity to live out of the trial. But Tyrion says that he'll not join the castle for a crime he's not committed. Then they discuss about who's going to fight for the crown and who for Tyrion. I'll stop here about it.

In Meereen, things are going to change a little bit. The Hound is having some tough time along with Arya. Brienne and Podrik are wondering where Sansa might be and they meet an old companion of Arya in their way. And "the mockingbird" is a special treat for you to watch! Not gonna spoil that!

Once again, Peter Dinklage succeeds in sending chills down your spines with his brilliant acting along with an extremely brilliant background score. This episode is directed by Alik Sakharov, who won an emmy for his brilliant cinematography in the TV series 'Rome'. Here again, some shots will leave you mesmerized.

This is the one episode of this season, where many "important" things happen. And I mean really really important. Watch out.
