Game of Thrones is picking up the pieces.
After the bloody, intense and maybe too dark Battle of Winterfell, the survivors were forced to reckon with their losses and look ahead to their next goal: take on Cersei Lannister and her Golden Company army.
Episode 4 starts on a sentimental note as the dead from the battle are burned the next morning, with Daenarys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) painfully saying goodbye to Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) crying over Theon Greyjoy’s body.
While sad, it also serves as a reminder of just how many people were lost in the battle, especially as they look ahead at the next war.
After a celebratory scene with lingering tension between Daenerys and Kit Harington’s Jon Snow, the newly-minted Gendry Baratheon, Lord of Storm’s End pulls a surprise move and proposes to the battle’s hero, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).
But sadly, that’s not the life she sees for herself.
“I’m not a lady, I never have been. That’s not me,” she tells him, and the hearts of Arya and Gendry shippers break all over.
But wait! The best is yet to come as a drunk Jamie Lannister finds Brienne of Tarth and the two take turns undressing each other until they (finally!) sleep together. And Twitter sure was happy.
