Game of Thrones kicked things into high gear with Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) riveting trial, and on Season 4, Episode 7, "Mockingbird" we'll see the aftermath of his dramatic decision to go for a trial by combat.
What else can we expect from this episode? A closer look at the preview reveals some tantalizing clues about the action next week.
1. Jaime is not happy. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is clearly distressed over his brother's outburst, lamenting in the preview's opening that Tyrion has thrown his life away.
2. Does Tyrion have a plan? "Don't give up on me just yet," Tyrion replies to Jaime's rant, and it's said with the kind of fierce determination that makes us think he has an idea about how to come out on top in this trial by combat. Is he expecting Jaime to step up and fight for him or maybe even Bronn (Jerome Flynn)?
3. Remember The Mountain? We'll be re-acquainted with The Hound's even more ruthless older brother, as we see at :09. This guy is huge and terrifying.
4. Daario makes a plea. At :12, Daario (Michiel Huisman) begs Dany (Emilia Clarke) to send him to kill her enemies. Which ones? Oh, any of them, really. He just wants to kill some people, any person, please.
5. Arya and The Hound's adventures continue. At :17 we see Arya (Maisie Williams) in some sort of scuffle, and :18 The Hound (Rory McCann) says that he's now a "walking bag of silver" thanks to her. Presumably that's a reference to the bounty the Small Council put out on his head this week.
6. Melisandre's magic. At :21 Melisandre (Carice van Houten) has Stannis's (Stephen Dillane) wife look into her magic flames. What "truth" is she trying to reveal?
7. A Winterfell of Snow. At :25 we see that someone has built a little Winterfell out of snow. Perhaps Sansa (Sophie Turner)? The next shot is of Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) giving her another lesson in his particular brand of justice. "Given the opportunity, what do we do to those who've hurt the ones we love?" he asks. We're guessing the answer is not "forgive and forget."
8. Lysa snaps. As if being lectured by Littlefinger weren't enough, Sansa faces true danger at the end of the promo, when Lysa Arryn (Kate Dickie) grabs her and holds her over what appears to be the Moon Door, shouting "liar!"
