In the trailer, we actually see several deaths, though it doesn’t look to be anyone important. We see Arya cleaning her blade over a dead man, so it looks like she and the Hound find themselves in another brawl. We also catch our first glimpse this season of the Mountain, as he hacks a man to bits while he begs for mercy, and Daario literally asks Dany to let him go kill some people. And then of course there’s the uncertainty surrounding Tyrion’s fate. The trailer also ends with the jarring image of Lysa Arryn holding Sansa over the moon door while calling her a liar. Might this be the end for one of them?
The plot synopsis for the episode is cryptic as usual, stating: “Tyrion enlists an unlikely ally. Daario entreats Dany to allow him to do what he does best. Jon’s warnings about the Wall’s vulnerability fall on deaf ears. Brienne follows a new lead on the road with Pod.” We really hope we get to see Daario in action “doing what he does best,” while Brienne and Pod following a new lead could also lead to some trouble for GoT’s newest odd couple.
While it seems like there will be plenty of death in the episode, it’s unclear whether anyone major will be taking their final bow. We’ll just have to tune in Sunday to see!
