"   Look how the episode is structured: It opens with Sansa being deliberately told how much of a pawn she’s been in the games of powerful men, reaches its midpoint by showing us Cersei realizing just how little power she has, and concludes with Dany underlining how her unique place in this world’s power structure helps her understand how best to upend said power structure. Along the way, we check in with a Gilly who Sam is terrified to contemplate being the subject of the sexual fantasies of everyone on the wall, an Arya who realizes how little control she has over the Hound, a Margaery who’s trying to figure out where she fits after she’s seen the death of yet another husband, and an Ygritte who’s taking part in wholesale slaughter. The argument seems clear: In a patriarchal monarchy like Westeros’, women are inevitably reduced to bargaining chips, and when you’re a bargaining chip, there’s little to stop men from treating you like property. It’s no wonder, then, that the two women we see with the most freedom are those who’ve realized the system needs to be leveled and replaced with something else. (Arya’s on her way to that, too.)   "

Do you ever see something someone posted, and you’re just like NO YOU ARE WRONG but you think to yourself, “This isn’t the hill I want to die on” so you have to let it go?

"   In reaching out to explore the distant hills where the gods dwell and the deeps where the monsters are lurking, we are perhaps discovering the way home.   "

Westeros map

It’s easy to get lost in a land as vast as Westeros. If you’ve been wishing Google would just break down the barriers between reality and fiction and map out the world of “Game of Thrones,” this interactive map of Westeros and Essos may be as close as you’ll get to having that dream…
