“Game of Thrones” Season 4, Episode 3 “Breaker of Chains” aired on Sunday, April 20, 2014 on HBO and it sure delivered something calmer compared to its action-packed episode last April 13, 2014, Season 4 Episode 2 “The Lion and The Rose,” in which we all witnessed the death of King Joffrey on his wedding day and his mockery of his uncle, Tyrion. Read on for the “Game of Thrones” Season 4 Episode 3 “Breaker of Chains” recap.

“Game of Thrones” Season 4 Episode 3 “Breaker of Chains” Recap:

Is The Universe Really Conspiring Against Sansa?

Sansa, you got it really bad. Ever since the start of “Game of Thrones,” whenever this girl tries to do the right thing, she ends up making everything worse. Talk about bad luck. Being Tyrion’s wife, she was also convicted for the murder of Joffrey but luck seems to be on her side now, because she was able to escape with Ser Dontos, who unfortunately is working for Littlefinger. This simply means that she is now in the hands of man who still holds a torch for her mother Catelyn Stark. The thing is, Littlefinger might be the culprit behind every mishap that happened at King’s Landing. Now that she has fled, it’s not a happy ending for her because Cersei wants her imprisoned with her husband, Tyrion.

Poor Tyrion

Now that he took the blame for his nephew’s death and is imprisoned, he also found out that he doesn’t have any allies anymore at King’s Landing. The ever loyal Bronn is being investigated too and Shae is gone.

As for Oberyn, he gets recruited in the council to prosecute him, and he agreed even if he abhors the Lannisters to the core. And there is his squire, Pod, who got offered a knighthood in exchange for selling Tyrion out.

We are all aware of Tyrion’s wits so what did he do after all of these? He gives up. For him, there is really no way out. As of the moment, he’s finding ways to ensure everyone he cares about is safely out of King’s Landing.

Cersei and Jaime

Tywin questions Tommen about what makes a good king next to his brother’s dead body and his mother. Heading out, they met Jaime and Jaime, doing his duty as Tommen’s “uncle” and his real father, comforted the boy and went straight to Cersei. Cersei requested that Jaime kill Tyrion. And the ugliest thing happened when Jaime forced himself on Cersei while Cersei screams and tries to stop his own brother. To make matters worse, they’re doing it beside their son’s dead body in a crypt and with so much grief.

To The Wall

Samwell’s love for Gilly is so strong but Samwell can’t tell her. So, he sends Gilly and her son to a whorehouse at Moles Town to keep them both safe. The Thenns are terrorizing the people living at the South of The Wall and forcing the Night’s Watch to make a decision to save the people or fortify their defenses.

Now things took a bad turn when the mutineers at Crasters are still at the North of The Wall and if by chance Mance Ryder and his minions meet them, Jon Snow is dead as he promised Mance that there’s thousands of people awaiting him. But in reality there is only a hundred.

Arya and Her Faith in Humanity

With everything that she and The Hound has gone through, Arya is having doubts about The Hound and she is actually thinking that The Hound is a good person after all. Until The Hound takes charity from a man and his daughter, then robs them. This upsets Arya of course and The Hound assures her that he is really not a nice guy. However, we do think that The Hound is only doing this to SURVIVE, though.

Davos the Forger

Stannis has no army and now that Robb and Joffrey are dead, which he cursed to be dead, he can now attack. But how? Davos forged his signature and asked money from the Iron Bank of Braavos to hire the Golden Army.

Another Epic Dany Scene

When it comes to Daenerys, we know that everything’s going to be amazingly epic and in this episode, it did. The slave owners of Meereen sent out their deadliest killer that Daario wasn’t able to take down. Dany took matters in her own hands and calls out to the slaves of the town and let loose dozens of catapults but they’re not holding bombs, though, but cut slave collars. The slaves see them and look at their masters and everything went black. It’s so on!
