Welcome to Power Rankings where host, Jessica Kinney, gives you the rundown on how the power shifts from week to week on Game of Thrones.
This week’s episode was named Hardhome named for the ruined Free Folk settlement North of the Wall. We finally see Arya getting to implement some of her training in the city of Braavos when she meets the gambler. She is well on her way to becoming one of the faceless men. Cersei however, is losing her power quickly. She is still in a cell and was told by Qyburn that her uncle is going to be the new Hand of the King. Sansa is still living in her own cell in Winterfell, but just found out that her brothers Bran and Rickon are still alive. Tyron was able to keep himself alive by convincing Daenerys to let him be her new advisor. That just leaves us with the Wall. Jon Snow and Tormund Giantsbane go to Hardhome to try and convince the Free Folk to return with them to Castle Black and they will let them through the gate and give them lands to farm. While there, they are attacked by the army of White Walkers and barely make it out with their lives.
