Daenerys receives an unexpected visitor; Jon faces a revolt; Tyrion plans the conquest of Westeros.
Daenerys sends the Dornishmen with Yara’s fleet to Sunspear and the Unsullied to Casterly Rock, deciding to place King’s Landing under siege. She questions Varys’ loyalty and threatens to burn him alive if he ever betrays her. Melisandre arrives and encourages her to invite Jon Snow to Dragonstone. Grey Worm and Missandei consummate their relationship. Cersei gathers several lords, asking for their fealties and elevating Randyll Tarly as Warden of the South. Qyburn shows Cersei a prototype ballista capable of harming dragons. Arya meets with Hot Pie and learns of Jon’s ascension to King in the North, halting plans to travel to King’s Landing and instead setting course for Winterfell. After receiving Samwell’s letter, Jon leaves for Dragonstone in hopes of convincing Daenerys to support the fight against the White Walkers. He leaves Sansa in charge and aggressively warns Littlefinger to keep his distance. Samwell applies a forbidden treatment on Jorah’s greyscale infection. Euron’s fleet attacks Yara’s. Obara and Nymeria are killed, while Ellaria, Tyene, and Yara are captured. Theon shows flashes of his time as Reek, hesitating to challenge Euron before fleeing the carnage by jumping into the sea.
