* Your mileage may vary on this given who her rescuer is and just how evil he has shown himself to be (and the fact his intentions towards her are... well pretty damn obvious), but Sansa '''finally''' escaping the Lannisters and leaving King's Landing, the city which had tormented her beyond her darkest nightmares, being under the protection of [[spoiler: Littlefinger]] has to be some solace to her and the audience.

** Especially heartwarming given the context: Despite how close the pair became, previous episodes showed Gendry felt insecure due to Arya's noble status and thought their friendship wouldn't survive her returning to her proper position. (Which was why he stayed with the Brotherhood rather than going on with her in the first place). Now he's gone and Arya's still on the way to her noble family but she hasn't just forgotten him, is mourning deeply and committed to avenging him. Never underestimate how much Arya Stark cares for people no matter their status.

** Also Brienne and Pod's interactions in the scene are a refreshing piece of non creepy/non heartrending cute given how Brienne is starting to act far more trusting and almost parental around Pod. The way Pod talks so distantly about "the Lanisters" also seems to indicate that he seperates them from Tyrion and Jaime.

* Robin and Sansa's conversation is very cute, for the most part. They talk about her home, he asks her why there isn't a Moon door, and general creepiness aside, he says how when they're married, he'll get rid of anyone who she doesn't like. They even set about figuring out where to have a Moon door in the snow replica of Winterfell, acting in a very playful manner together. It quickly falls apart from there, but still.

** Edd's line of how "she survived a white walker" also shows that the guys actually believe Sam's story about the White Walker while Slynt and Thorne both mock him for it. It is to be noted that Edd is known for his BrutalHonesty, so reassuring words from him mean quite a bit.

** Varys packs Tyrion into the same crate he had the warlock who made him a eunuch shipped in from Essos. As he leaves it to the dockhands, he looks back... and goes to sit beside the crate, joining his friend in exile. Sure it is almost certainly due to him not wishing to be caught in Kings Landing once the shit hits the fan over [[spoiler: Tywin's death and Tyrion's escape]] but it is nice to know Tyrion will not be alone or without friends wherever he is going.

He instructs his bodyguard to let Ellaria go unharmed despite her implied challenges and threats, and of course hurting Myrcella is out of the question.

* Tommen gets one when he attempts to confront The High Sparrow to [[spoiler: negotiate Ser Loras Tyrell's release,]] only to be blocked off by a large gathering of Sparrows who refuse to let him enter the Great Sept of Bealor. One of his Kingsguard knights tells Tommen that if he gives the word they will "clear out this rabble." [[GoodCannotComprehendEvil Tommen actually has to ask him if he means "kill them."]] When it looks like it's going to explode into a huge fight (which Tommen's side will likely lose, since they are surrounded and outnumbered), Tommen wisely backs down and returns to Margaery, telling her there was no way to [[spoiler: get Loras back]] without resorting to violence. It seems Tywin was correct when he said that Tommen has the right temperament for a king, even if he does not truly have the power, authority, or birthright.

** While mileage will definitely vary on this, it's also darkly sweet on the guard's part. Seeing his king needs help, he points out what he considers to be the best option, promises he'll ensure it's taken if Tommen agrees, and without showing any disdain towards Tommen, even tries to accommodate Tommen's moral unease by pointing out they'd be sending the sparrows to meet the gods the sparrows so fanatically worship. Obviously, this doesn't make his suggestion any less horrifying, but it did seem come to from a genuine desire to serve his king.

* Jon trusts and unchains Tormund, after goading him by wondering if Tormund is a coward no less, and then succesfully appealing to Tormund's protectiveness towards the free folk.
* Missandei advises Daenerys that advisors have their place, but sometimes she has to know when to forego their counsel and make her own decision. This leads her to stop trying to rule Meereen through brute force, and reach a compromise that shows she has respect for those traditions which deserve it.

** This is made all the more special if one has read the books. Tyrion says in 'A Game of Thrones' that when he was younger he wanted to see a dragon and was interested in them. As he grew older and more jaded he realized they were gone and would never come back. Seeing Drogon for Tyrion is a moment to be a child again and realize that there is magic and wonder in the world still and the old stories aren't just legend.

* [[KeystoneArmy "Despite the warning from Bronn,"]] it's was heartwarming to see Jaime not wanting to abandon his army. Unfortunately this also made his army deaths much more heartbreaking as he directly see what's happening to them during the Loot Train Battle

** Look at and listen closely to how Drogon reacts in that scene. When he first lands, he's doing his usual routine of intimidation. However, he then seems to become curious about Jon as he leans in as if investigating something. When he leans in closer he appears to be smelling Jon, and after a moment Drogon slowly starts to relax as he allows Jon to touch him. Even the sounds that Drogon lets out at Jon petting him sound calm and happy, as if Daenarys was doing it. [[spoiler: While Dragon sense of smell hasn't quite been proven, it is very likely Drogon can tell Jon is a Targaryen by smell given how he's acting.]]

* Tormund puts up with The Hound's hostile attitude with surprising cheer -- because he is thinking of Brienne, and it is making him happy.

* The Hound pulling Tormund to safety and pulverizing the horde of wights about to pull the Wildling to his death. This annoying ginger may talk too much, but damn it, he's on our team and he's not going down if I can help it.

** Also, when Cersei is unable to bring herself to kill Tyrion herself, he walks over to a table, pours himself a goblet of wine, and then pours another one and gives it to Cersei. In spite of everything, he is still her brother and she still his sister.

** Jaime honors his promise to Jon, Daenerys and Tryion after all...
* When Sam arrives in Winterfell he goes up to Bran's room to visit him, despite being unsure of whether Bran will remember him. Bran obviously does remember and thanks him for helping his group get beyond The Wall when they last met and tells Sam he's a good man.

* During the Dwarf War of the Five Kings, Tommen is shown laughing right along with Joffrey at first, only to catch a sight of Tyrion's DeathGlare and quickly realize that it's ''[[DudeNotFunny not]]'' funny in the slightest. He immediately stops smiling and proceeds to remain silent for the entire rest of the meal, looking utterly guilty. This shows that unlike Joffrey (or even Cersei), Tommen actually cares about Tyrion, is a decent enough person to understand that his Uncle was deeply hurt by this mockery, and realizes he made a mistake by laughing at his expense.

** Tyrion showing the basic consideration of actually warning her a considerable amount of time before the Wedding in order to allow her some time to come to terms with the wedding. Moreover, Tyrion actually seems like he doesn't actually want the marriage.
** A subtle, small one for Tywin as well. Yes he's more concerned about the well being of his family name and cares little for Tyrion, but somehow Tywin manages to gain one by angrily turning to the people in the audience as they laugh at Tyrion's humiliation as he attempts to wrap the marriage cloak around Sansa and instantly shuts them up with a glare.

** One that's easy to overlook, but after Tyrion refuses to bed Sansa against her will, he passes out on the couch. The next morning when he wakes up, it seems someone put a blanket over him while he slept. Sansa was the only other person in the room the whole night.

* When Tyrion wakes up in the morning he is covered by what appears to be the cloak from the wedding, yet he wasn't covered when he went to sleep and Shae hasn't been in during the night, so Sansa must have covered him up after he refused to "bed" her.



--> Cat: "Oh Ned forbade it. He said it wouldn't be right if he broke a man's jaw on our wedding night."
* Talisa suggesting to Robb that they name their potential son "Eddard". The look on Robb's face when she says "Don't you want to teach little Ned Stark how to ride a horse" seals the deal.[[spoiler:..[[MoodWhiplash then '''that''' song plays]] and this moment is turned into an utterly horrifying and depressing {{Tearjerker}} within ten painful minutes.]]

* Sam admitting he sometimes "wants to hate Jon" is adorable in context, as it is in response to Jon's near tearful recollections of Robb and how Jon wanted to hate him for being a better fighter, rider, and ladies man than him; but could not help loving him, anyways.

* Several character have said that Stannis has no personality and would make a poor king. But Stannis shows that he's honest, reserved, insightful, rewards others' loyalty and empowers his followers largely on merit; it is easy to see why Davos is so loyal.

* Even despite his severe change in fortunes, Tyrion still finds time and money to reward Podrick for his service so far the only way he knows how, with three of the most beautiful and expensive whores he can find followed by drinking with him and Bronn afterwards (though that may have been to find out just what he did that made said whores happy enough to refuse payment).

** On the same note, despite the fairly harsh tearjerker, Arya insisting that she'll be Gendry's family when he says he's never had one. And he's the one who brings up their class differences not her. In a show full of nobles who couldn't care less about the ordinary people getting hurt in their squabbles Arya -- from one of the most powerful families in Westeros -- values a butcher's son as much as any royal and views an armorer's apprentice as part of her family.
* Olenna Tyrell's meeting with Tyrion, she heard that Tyrion was a DepravedDwarf, but she see's him as a man just doing his job.

* During the riot, after witnessing an insane mob (whom he is fully aware despise and blames him above even Joffrey) rip a priest literally to pieces barely a few feet away, Tyrion's first thought is to ask where Sansa is, having noticed her be cut off from the rest of the group. Although there's also his concern that, if ''she'' dies, Jaime's as good as dead too. Which is Heartwarming in it's own way.
