Episode: Oathkeeper (404). Date of Exhibition: April 27, 2014. Directed by Michelle MacLaren. Written by Bryan Cogman. Summary: Daenerys successfully captures Meereen, and immediately seeks justice for the slain slave children by nailing all the masters to posts. At sea, Petyr admits to Sansa that he was responsible for poisoning Joffrey, despite his alliance with the Lannisters. In King’s Landing, Olenna encourages Margaery to seduce Tommen before Cersei has a chance to turn him against her. Jaime meets with Tyrion, and is convinced he is not guilty. However, Cersei is adamant about Tyrion’s guilt, and orders Jaime to hunt down and kill Sansa. Jaime instead tasks Brienne with finding and protecting Sansa, and sends Podrick along with her. In the North, in an effort to get rid of Jon, Alliser allows Jon to lead an expedition against the Night’s Watch mutineers occupying Craster’s Keep. Meanwhile, Bran and his party stumble upon Craster’s Keep, where they are captured by the mutineers, and Bran is forced to reveal his identity to them. Further north, a White Walker takes Craster’s last newborn son to a secret ritual site, where another White Walker touches the baby’s face, turning its eyes blue.
