The white walkers reach Meera and Bran but they are saved in the last minute by a mysterious black rider who turns out to be Benjen Stark. Sam and Gilly arrive at Horn Hill, where Sam introduces Gilly and Crastor's son to his family. Defending Sam, Gilly confesses that she is a wildling, which is appalling to Randyll. Nevertheless, Randyll accepts the baby into his home. However, Sam changes his mind in the last moment and decides to take Gilly, the baby as well as the Valyrian sword of his father with him and leave his home for good. King Tommen is allowed to see Queen Margery. Instead of killing the actress playing Cersei by poisoning her, Arya recovers her Needle and makes different plans. Jaime and the Tyrell army march into King's Landing, trying to stop Margery's planned walk of shame but the High Sparrow already thought this event through, making sure he will succeed in the end by manipulating King Tommen to take his side.

Quotes

[Daenerys, sitting on Drogon's back, speaks to the Dothraki warriors in the Dothraki language]
Daenerys Targaryen: Every Khal who ever lived chose three bloodriders to fight beside him and guard his way, But I am not a Khal. I will not choose three blood riders. I choose you all.
[the Dothraki cheer, wave their weapons and shout their approval]
Daenerys Targaryen: I will ask more of you than any Khal has ever asked of his khalasar! Will you ride the wooden horses across the black salt sea?

Incredible to say the least

Greetings from Lithuania.

How to collide multiple story lines brilliantly and fascinatingly in one episode? "Blood of My Blood" in the Answer. I do not know what many of You guys saw in this episode that currently holds low 8,6 rating (in terms of this show) here at IMDb, but this episode blew me away - it is pure 10/10. Acting, directing, script, pacing (!) and all technical stuff are on the highest order - as (almost) always. There are multiple story lines here, which moved story forward - not hold it in the same path for a minute, and it was done in brilliantly crafted and unpredictable but always plausible ways. This season 6 doesn't take a break for an episode and it is one of the few best seasons yet, and "Blood of My Blood" in a one helluva ride. LOVED IT.
