Episode Summary:
In a flashback, a young Cersei is told a somber fortune by a witch. After Tywin’s burial, Cersei chastises Jaime for freeing Tyrion and meets her newly religious and repentant cousin Lancel. In Pentos, a despondent Tyrion agrees to accompany Varys to Meereen to support Daenerys’s claim. In Meereen, the rebel “Sons of the Harpy,” murder an Unsullied, and Hizdahr zo Loraq and Daario Nahaaris try to convince Daenerys to reopen the traditional fighting pits. In the Vale, Littlefinger puts Robyn in the care of a bannerman and leaves with Sansa, their caravan passing Brienne of Tarth and Podrick Payne. At the Wall, Stannis wants to enlist the Wildlings in his war against Roose Bolton. But Jon Snow can’t convince Mance Rayder to bend the knee to Stannis, who has Mance burned alive for treason.
