First thing first, the episode started with some far off land. Somewhere far from war, a cult setting where men were at work to build a wooden infrastructure. We see happy faces and men aptly on work. Just then we see a giant of a man lugging a log on his shoulder alone. Just for comparison, we see the same sized log being hauled by four men before him.
So the shock comes as soon as he dismounts the logs and turns. It’s Sandor! Remember the tall hellish looking guy who had an alliance with Tyrion Lannister, saved Sansa Stark and fought Brienne in pursuit of Arya Stark. We had thought that he had died back in season 4. Surprise he did not die.
According to Septon, who is the leader of the cult, the found Sandor floating and thought he was dead. They had been ready to give him a proper burial when he coughed. Septon then nursed him back to health. Sandor accents to Septon that he was feared, he was a monster and he had been beaten by a woman. He just wants to live a peaceful life from there on.
Speaking of peaceful life, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark are on a mission to gather allies. Jon is still very much recovering from his resurrection. Seeming more nervous and unsure than before. Tormund helps them convince the Wildlings to fight with them.
The House of Mourmont takes persuasion from Davos but agree to give 62 men. The House of Glover however refuses blaming Robb Stark for abandoning them. Leading the Ironborn to attack the North. While Jon is rallying the armies against the Dead, Sansa is intent on seeking vengeance against Ramsay which causes her to take her own course of action.
The Ironborns seemed to be in a therapy session as Yara gave Theon some advice to man up or die. She gets him drunk and enthusiastic about his mission to take back the throne as he once had. Meanwhile Jaime Lannister took the help of his old ally Bronn to establish a camp against Blackfish who had taken over Frey castle. Blackfish definitely gave Jaime a tough time. Making Jaime and us realize how incomplete he has really become without his sword arm.
Meanwhile the ladies had their own part to play. Margery seems to be playing her part as the new follower of the High Sparrow. Embracing piety and prayer but we know just how deceiving she could be. Arya Stark got stabbed by the Waif and survived.
We don’t know how yet but the girl aould have been a cat with the nine lives in some other life. The tragedy also strck when Sandor returns from his expedition to Septon’s cult. Only to find everyone murdered and Septon hanged. He picks up an axe with a very murderous look on his face.
The episode has definitely set the table for some warfare coming ahead. With some crucial warriors in place finally, the remaining episodes bring the promise of thrilling war sequences.
