Daenerys makes a difficult decision; Jon recruits the help of an unexpected ally; Brienne searches for Sansa; Theon remains under Ramsay’s control.
Brienne and Podrick arrive at an inn near Winterfell and send a message to Sansa, stating that they will help her if she needs it. Sansa finds out about Theon’s presence. Ramsay forces him to apologize to her for his actions. At the Wall, Tormund accepts an alliance with the Night’s Watch that will allow the Wildlings to settle south of the Wall. Jon Snow agrees to accompany him to meet the Wildlings in Hardhome. Stannis’s army leaves for Winterfell, taking Selyse and Shireen with them. In Meereen, Grey Worm recuperates, developing a romantic relationship with Missandei. Daenerys feeds a Meereenese nobleman to dragons Viserion and Rhaegal and imprisons the others. She later agrees to reopen the fighting pits and decides to marry Loraq to facilitate peace. At sea, Tyrion and Mormont sail through Valyria, seeing Drogon flying by, and are attacked by a group of stone men. They manage to escape, but Mormont is infected with greyscale.
