Game of thrones review season 5 episode 6- Arya is cleaning the bodies in the House of Black and White, wandering what’s happening to them after that. She is just about to enter the hall of Faces when she is confronted by the waif. Arya demands to know but the waif is again playing the game with her, telling a fake story about her past that Arya believes.
Later, Jaqen wakes Arya in the middle of the night to test her again asking questions and hitting her every time she tells a lie. The interesting thing here is that when Arya says she hates The Hound, Jaqen hits her very hard suggesting it’s a lie. Does he see something that even Arya doesn’t see or doesn’t want to admit?
When a man arrives at the temple bringing his sick daughter, Arya lies to the little girl and makes her drink from the fountain to end her suffering. Jaqen sees this and brings Arya to the Hall of Faces where she is amazed of the amount of faces collected from the dead bodies. Jaqen tells her that she is not ready to become no one, but she can become someone else.
While resting, Tyrion and Jorah are having a conversation. Tyrion tells Jorah that he killed his father Tywin and his whore Shae and that’s why he escaped Westeros. Then talks about Jorah’s father, the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and how he was killed by his own men.
Something Jorah didn’t know. They are caught by slavers that want to kill Tyrion branding him useless for work, but he manages to talk his way out of certain death saying that Joras is one of the best fighters in Westeros and he would be worth a lot in the fighting pits.
On his way to meet with Cersei, Littlefinger is stopped and threatened by Lancel Lannister, who is brother Lancel now, and the Faith militants are informing him about the new King’s Landing. Littlefinger tells Cersei that he has found Sansa in Winterfell and she is to marry the bastard son of Roose Bolton, Ramsey.
When Cersei hears of this she is angry and wants them all dead, but Littlefinger suggests letting the Boltons and Stannis fight off then, he will use the Knights of the Vale to take over Winterfell in the name of the King. In return, he asks to be named Warden of the North. Having no other choice, Cersei agrees.
