Game of Thrones Season 3 has been moving at a steady pace for the first half of the season, but that’s all about to change in Season 3, Episode 7: “The Bear and the Maiden Fair.” 

For book fans, yes, this means we’ll get to see Brienne face a “formidable foe” in the bear pit at Harrenhal. ("Don't worry about your friend. We'll take good care of her." Yeah, if taking good care of her means throwing her into a bear pit.) It’s going to be epic. And don’t worry Daenerys fans, Mother Dragon and her Unsullied army will be back next week, and she’ll be be exchanging “gifts with a slave lord outside Yunkai.”

It also looks like Melisandre “reveals a secret” to Gendry. He may be a bastard, but he’s Robert Baratheon’s bastard. Will Melisandre tell Gendry the truth?

Here the full Season 3, Episode 7 (“The Bear and the Maiden Fair”) synopsis: Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) exchanges gifts with a slave lord outside Yunkai. As Sansa (Sophie Turner) frets about her prospects, Shae (Sibel Kekilli) chafes at Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) new situation. Tywin counsels the king, and Melisandre reveals a secret to Gendry (Joe Dempsie). Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) faces a formidable foe in Harrenhal.
