In Meereen, Daenerys has to decide how to deal with the former masters after the death of Ser Barristan Selmy and the injuries inflicted on Grey Worm. She decides to round up the heads of the 13 richest families in the city and introduce them to her dragons. Jorah Mormont and Tyrion Lannister approach the ancient city of Valyria and, after witnessing something quite incredible, they are set upon by the Stone Men, and Mormont does not escape unscathed. Sansa finally sees what has become of Theon, courtesy of Ramsay Bolton's jealous mistress. Ramsay is particularly cruel to Theon at a dinner, much to Roose Bolton's displeasure. At Castle Black, Jon Snow tries to convince Tormund Giantsbane to move his people south of the Wall and settle in lands that will be made available to them. Most of the men of the Watch object to the plan. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


The episode title refers to the advice Maester Aemon gives Jon about growing into a man of the Night's Watch, how he must mature into it and make selfless decisions. This is the same advice he gave many years ago to his own brother Aegon V Targaryen when he was crowned king: "Kill the boy, and let the man be born." As is often the case with Game of Thrones episodes, the title may carry a double meaning: it may also refer to the story that Roose Bolton tells his son Ramsey about how he raped Ramsey's mother, and was presented months later with an illegitimate son; Roose was briefly tempted to kill the boy, but reconsidered.

Davos Seaworth: What?

The consolidation of the power of Daennerys. The alliance of Tormund. The survive against stone men and the blesssures of Mormont. And the meet of Sansa with Theon. Simple events, seductive for the great way to define the story. The axis - the love story between Missandei and Gray Worm. A well crafted embroidery of facts and inspired use of nuances - the expectation of Lady Brienne as basic proof.
