Game of Thrones Season 5 Recap: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Ramsay Bolton must be killed after seeing this week’s episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 5 Episode 6 “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.” Read on for more details.
The episode started off at King’s Landing where Cersei is happily scheming, and Petyr Baelish, also known as Littlefinger, has arrived. Loras remains imprisoned for his homosexuality. It has urged Lady Olenna of House Tyrell to confront her and spat subtle insults to each other. Before that, Cersei has to deal with Littlefinger first.
Littlefinger brought news that he hasn’t found Arya Stark, but he has Sansa Stark who is now betrothed to Ramsay Bolton. Cersei was furious when she heard about this because she thought the Lannisters and the Boltons have this rule that they should kill any Stark that they could get. Littlefinger managed to make Cersei simmer down. She said that she should let Stannis and the Boltons fight each other. It was only when one of them gains victory will Cersei pounce to make her move.
Cersei summoned Littlefinger to ask if the Knights of the Vale will support the crown in battle. Littlefinger didn’t give her a yes but only told her that he has always been loyal to the throne.
It’s time for Lady Olenna and Cersei’s confrontation. Lady Olenna threatened Cersei that she will stop the flow of gold and food in King’s Landing if she doesn’t let Loras go. Then, Cersei decided to make Loras’ acquittal a formality. Knowing Cersei, she’s not going to let them go easily. So during Loras’ trial, he denies all of the charges against him, and the High Sparrow surprisingly called Queen Margaery to stand witness and making it clear to everyone that no one is exempted from testimony. Margaery denied all the accusations to his brother, and the High Sparrow called another witness. H e is the Olyvar, Littlefinger’s brother manager and also one of Loras’ lovers. He admitted to having an intimate relationship with Loras, and he dropped the bomb by saying that in fact Margaery once walked in on them.
That being said, Margaery is now an accessory to the crime and is now in prison with her brother while Tommen was left speechless as they took his queen away.
Next, there’s Tyrion and Jorah Mormont who were captured by new men, the slavers. Luckily, both of them tried to slip away from getting killed by telling the men how they could make use of both of them. Tyrion remains to be doubtful regarding Dany’s capabilities to rule Westeros. He thinks that having dragons is not enough to make you a good ruler. It was especially the fact that she’s a Targaryen and they do have their crazy side.
In Dorne, Jamie and Bronn battled the Sand Snakes, which caught the attention of Areo Hotah’s army and he had them all captured. Meanwhile, in the House of Black and White, Arya still struggles to be no one. Jaqen H’ghar tried to interrogate her in order to push her to lose her identity. It worked, but Jaqen saw something in her and took her to the basement of the House of Black and White where in there lies thousands and thousands of faces. Jaqen knows that Arya is ready to become someone else.
And for the closing scene this episode, Sansa finally married Ramsay, and she was escorted by Theon Greyjoy. And after the ceremony, Ramsay had Theon watch him rape Sansa in the most horrific way possible.
