Welcome to Power Rankings where host, Jessica Kinney, gives you the rundown on how the power shifts from week to week on Game of Thrones.
This was episode 6 of season 5. Named Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken for the determination of the Sand Snakes to avenge their father, Oberyn. He died a gruesome death last season and we are just now seeing his daughter’s vengeance. They tried to abduct Myrcella only to be stopped by not only Jaime and Bronn, but also by Areo and Prince Doran’s guards, who surround them and force them all to drop their weapons. Jaime, Bronn, Ellaria and the Sand Snakes are all taken into custody. Petyr Baelish arrives in King’s Landing and has council with Cersei Lannister asking for her blessing to be Warden of the North if his men fight for the throne and take over Winterfell. Also seeking council with Cersei is Olenna Tyrell. Cersei now has both her grandchildren, Loras and Margaery imprisoned and awaiting trial for bearing false witness to the Gods. Tommen seems to remain confused about what to do and is following his mothers advice. In the North, Sansa is wed to Ramsey Bolton and we see again how cruel and harmful he can be as he makes Reek watch as they consummate the marriage. Saving his own precious piece, Tyrion Lannister and Jorah Mormont are taken into custody by slavers, but convince them they are worth more alive than dead. They are now being taken to the fighting pits on Meereen. Finally, in Bravos Arya is ready to become someone else and finally sees the Hall of Faces with Jaqen H’ghar.
