Stannis arrives at Winterfell. Tyrion runs Meereen as Daario and Jorah go after Daenerys. Jaime and Myrcella leave Dorne. Jon sends Sam and Gilly to Oldtown. Arya challenges the Many-Faced God. Cersei confesses her sins.
Stannis attacks Winterfell. Sansa and Theon find themselves on a difficult situation. Arya challenges the many face god. Daenerys is surrounded by acquaintances. Jaime and Myrcella leave Dorne. Cersei confesses. Sam goes to oldtown to become the new maester. Jon receives news about his uncle Benjen.
In the books, Sam did want to be a Maester when he was younger, but his father Randyll was horrified by the idea and essentially tortured and abused Sam by chaining him up (like a Maester's chains) until Sam swore to never consider the idea again. So, when Jon tells him to go to Oldtown to become a Maester, he's very much against the idea and begs and pleads not to go as he is still traumatized. Jon sends him anyway. In the show, this is completely changed as Sam himself is the one to ask to become a Maester and be sent away, while Jon initially protests. See more »
The gunk on Cersei's body during the "walk of atonement" visibly changes between shots (from the right clavicle to right deltoid and back again, for example). The changes often occur between faraway and close-up shots, because the faraway shots are actually the body of Rebecca Van Cleave, with Lena Headey's face very obviously CGI'ed over hers, whereas the closeup shots are Headey.

Looks like we're done here.

Baratheon Soldier #1:
I surrender! I surrender!
And I accept your surrender.

Each episode of GoT is source of emotions. Different, in clashes, ambiguous, powerfull. But in this case , the emotions are , in a form, adaptations of Shakespeare tragedies, from the walk of Cersei to the fall of Jon Snow, to the defeat of Stannis or the justice of Brienne of Tarth or the death of Myrcella or the Dothraki captivity as return in the womb of the past . The way of Samwel to a new beginning is the basic source of hope. Because the film gives more than the shock of the last scene - example of high cinematography- but the pledge for the necessity of revenge as right use of justice. Basis for new serie, it is the key for acceptence and fury.
