Tommen abolishes trial by combat, much to the dismay of Cersei, who planned to win using Gregor. Brienne arrives in Riverrun and attempts to persuade Brynden to surrender, without success. After Jaime threatens to kill Edmure’s young son, he enters the castle and orders the Tully forces to stand down, but Brynden is killed fighting the Lannisters. Brienne and Podrick escape. Varys departs Meereen on an unknown mission. Meereen comes under naval assault by the slaving cities, but Daenerys returns. Sandor kills the outlaws who sacked his village and encounters Dondarrion and Thoros, who explain that the outlaws were renegades. They try to convince Sandor to join the Brotherhood. Arya is taken in by the actress, who heals her wounds. In the morning, the Waif arrives, kills the actress and chases Arya through the streets of Braavos. Arya leads the Waif into the catacombs and kills her. She returns the Waif’s face to the House and declares that she is Arya Stark of Winterfell and she is going home.
