This is Third Act’s weekly spoiler discussion post where we discuss the events this week’s Game of Thrones episode.
Spoilers Warning & Guidelines
Obviously, this will have spoilers from this week episode. However, we do have a few guidelines we’d like people to consider before posting:
- No spoilers from episodes that haven’t aired yet.
- No spoilers from the books, unless as a commentary about how the episode deferred from the book.
The goal of this weekly segment is a place for discussion on each episode and speculate on future episodes.
Ayra walks through some more doors…
Ayra storyline this season is truly the most boring. She continues washing dead bodies and being taught condescending lessons…
The only interesting part of this was with Jaqen H’ghar when he was hitting Ayra every time she lied. Upon saying she hated The Hound he hit her.
The Sand Sisters plan has been revealed and so has Jaime Lannister’s. Luckily the two caught in the middle, Myrcella Baratheon and Trystane Martell, survived. It’ll be interesting to see Dorne’s response to what has happened. Will they allow Jaime to take back his niece/daughter?
Littlefinger and Cersei
Littlefinger! You cheeky so-and-so! We are finally shown what Littlefinger’s plan was all along. He wants the north for himself and in order to take it, he needs the King’s approval. Littlefinger knows that Stannis and the Boltons will be too busy fighting each other. Allowing the Vale to take control of the north afterwards.
Perhaps Littlefinger has a bigger plan involved and he isn’t ready to only accept the North. Perhaps he wants the crown? If the Vale were to help Stannis take the north and team up they can continue Stannis’ charge to Kings Landing and take the throne. Then later on Littlefinger can take Stannis out of the picture and have the throne for himself.
Arya will now become… AYRA!
After half a season of Arya attempting to become ‘no-one’ she will now become Ayra… I give up…
To the pits!
Friendzone Mormont will finally be reunited with his love queen! He has been given the chance to win his freedom by earning his newly acquired slave owners some money in the process at the fighting pits that had been recently opened by Daenerys.
Olenna Tyrell and Cersei
Cersei is starting to self-destruct (or already has). Cersei and the Lannisters NEED the Tyrells but Cersei is too stubborn to let them have any slight power of her. Having Loras Tyrell taken by the Sparrow faith is Cersei’s fault and she won’t let the decision change.
I am the QUEEN!
In a sudden turn of events, Loras Tyrell has been found guilty of being homosexual. On top of that, they’ve taken Margery Tyrell also into custody for assisting Loras in his devious ways. Tommen did nothing!
Something has to be done and I feel like it will be done by Olenna. The Tyrells can bankrupt the crown overnight and can find allies in the kingdoms to support them taking Kings Landing.
Does anyone remember when Sansa was so excited to marry Joeffery? Remember when we all hated Joeffery? That seems like such a long time ago now. Ramsey Bolton has easily dethroned Joeffery as the most hated in Westeros.
Did Littlefinger know this would happen? Did he know and still got her to marry him just so his plan would work. In a world where justice seems to be extinct, will Ramsey get his comeuppance?
That’s it for this week. Was anyone actually shocked about Ramsey’s actions?
