Game of thrones review season 4 episode 5-Since king Joffrey is dead, thanks to Baelish and Lady Olenna, Tommen is coronated as king. Margaery smiles at Tommen and he smiles back at her. Cersei caught that smile and immediately goes to speak with Margaery. She asks Margaery if she still wants to be queen and marry Tommen now. Both of them need to talk with their fathers about this issue.
Daenerys receives word about Joffrey’s death and wishes to attack Westeros but her advisors tell her that they cannot attack Westeros with only 10 000 soldiers. Furthermore, they deliver Daenerys the news about Yunkai and Astapor- the former slaves are now once again slaves since the masters have retaken control of the cities.
Due to the news, Daenerys makes a decision to stay in Mereen so that she can rule and protect the people and prove herself as a ruler in one city before she can rule the world.
Lord Baelish takes Sansa to her aunt Lysa in the Eyrie. Sansa has been instructed to hide her identity in front of anybody else except Baelish, Lysa and her son Robin. Immediately after Sansa leaves the room, Lysa begs Baelish to get wed that night.
A very interesting conversation follows this request. Lady Lysa unveils the truth about her husband’s death- everything that happened was according to Baelish’s instructions. He told Lysa to poison her husband so that she can be free to marry Baelish, her true love since childhood.
Furthermore, he gave Lysa instructions to send Catelyn a letter, warning her about the Lannisters and finally she didn’t sent soldiers from the Vale to support the Starks in their war against the Lannisters. Every action she has taken was under Littlefinger’s orders.
Poor Sansa, she has fallen into the hands of the greatest traitors of her family. Once she is alone with her aunt Lysa, Sansa is being questioned if she had anything intimate with Baelish. We see how much Lysa is obsessed with Baelish and also she is jealous of Sansa.
Arya travels with the Hound who is now taking her to the Vale. Maybe he will succeed this and so Sansa and Arya will be together again. Before she can sleep, Arya tells her list of names while the Hound mocks her. Finally, he leaves her to finish the list and in the end he hears his name. Yes, the Hound is on her list for killing her friend the stable boy back in Game of thrones season 1.
Back at Craster’s place, we see how the mutineers continue torturing Hodor and questioning Bran, Jojen and Meera. Before they can rape Meera, Jojen tells the leader of the mutineers that he will die that night.
As soon as he learns this, another man comes to tell the leader that other men from the Night’s Watch have come and so they start fighting. Lockley, Bolton’s man who came together with Jon, kidnaps Bran but before he can hurt the boy, Bran wargs into Hodor who now becomes a killing weapon.
Hodor kills Lockley and Bran, Jojen and Meera are free to escape the place. Bran sees Jon and wishes to go to him, but Jojen stops him. If Jon sees Bran he will take him back so they will never find the tree and the Three-eyed raven who is waiting for Bran. And so they leave in the night, while Jon and his men overpower the mutineers and burn the place to the ground.
