In ”Game of Thrones” Season 5, Episode 3 “High Sparrow” things are in motion for some of the main characters of the show: Littlefinger’s plan for Sansa has unraveled, Jon Snow showed his authority as Lord Commander and has gained respect and Tyrion was finally on his way to where he’s supposed to be all along.

Ever since Littlefinger took captive of Sansa Stark, all of us wondered what is he going to do with her? Finally, we found out. Littlefinger ordered Sansa to marry Ramsay Bolton to take over Winterfell. Sansa was hesitant at first because it was Ramsay who killed her brother in the infamous Red Wedding but Littlefinger convinced her by saying that marrying him means she can reclaim the North.

Arya Stark is in the House of Black and White and is under strict ordered to become no one. The fact that she’s helping with the chores isn’t enough to be no one so what she did next was change her clothes and drops all her belongings into the ocean while she left her sword hidden under a pile of rocks nearby.

Jon Snow is now the Commander of the Night’s Watch on the Wall but not everyone likes him because of the fact that he became soft to the wildlings. A man questioned his authority and to address his concern, Jon cut his head whilst ignoring his pleas of mercy.

Last but not the least, Tyrion has convinced Varys to take him out of the carriage and into the city of Volantis. That night, he was kidnapped by Jorah Mormont and they were on their way to Daenarys’. Just like what Tyrion planned all along.
