Game of Thrones Season 4, Episode 5 wasn't the most exciting episode, but we're pretty sure all that talk is building to something epic. For example: Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) trial, which will pit Lannister vs. Lannister in a fight for Tyrion's life which we will see play out, at least in part, in tonight's Season 4, Episode 6 ("The Laws of Gods and Men").
What else can we expect from the episode? While we don't know many details about the episode, we do have some info, mostly thanks to the official synopsis and promo. Here's what we know — with no book spoilers included!
Stannis and Davos make their move. "Stannis and Davos set sail with a new strategy," the official synopsis teases. In the promo, you can see Stannis approaching the Iron Bank of Braavos, as represented by new character Tycho Nestoris, which Tywin mentioned again tonight. If you recall, a few episodes ago Davos came up with the idea of borrowing money from the bank to fund an army; it looks like Stannis is trying to do just that. Will the Iron Bank fork over the cash? We know the current crown owes it, big time, so it's a distinct possibility...
Dany meets with supplicants. Dany has decided to stay in Meereen as queen, and now it's time for her to get into the nitty gritty of ruling when she "meets with supplicants." As we see in the promo, Varys is well aware of what Dany is up to.
Tyrion's trial. "Tyrion faces down his father in the throne room," says the synopsis. In the promo, we can see that's an understatement: what it means is that his trial is this week. According to the episode's director, we can expect some amazing acting from Peter Dinklage this week.
Yara tries to rescue her brother. In the promo, we see that this episode will also feature Yara's rescue attempt. Will she be able to help her captured brother?
