“My real father lost his head at King’s Landing. I made a choice and I chose wrong,” he says.

But just as he thinks he’s on his way to freedom, Theon is double-crossed and returned to the same torture-chamber he just fled.


The cave of the Lightning Lord

Arya Stark, Thoros of Myr, The Hound and the others arrive at the cave of the Lightning Lord.

Beric Dondarrion and others accuse The Hound of unspeakable crimes mainly committed by his brother (such as, murdering the Targaryen babies during King Aerys II’s reign).  

But then Arya accuses The Hound of murder with a specific case: The killing of Mycah, the butcher’s boy, in Season One. (I'm personally still mad about how that went down.)

“Is the little girl the bravest one here?” the Hound asks. (Just wait and see, Sir Dog.)

Dondarrion agrees to a trial by combat with The Hound in which God will judge whether or not King Joffrey’s former dog is guilty. This nicely sets up a showdown for episode five, the halfway point of the season. Here's hoping that the Hound joins Craster and Viserys in the Night Lands.

That’s it! See y’all next week.
