Added DiffLines:

** The fact that despite finally coming home and feeling welcome in Winterfell, Arya's suspicious and now-cynical nature continues to color her world view that she can't empathize with the pressures Sansa is experiencing. [[spoiler:That she might actually get manipulated by Littlefinger, of all people, into clashing yet again with her sister is just the stuff of nightmare.]]

* The revelation of [[spoiler: Rhaegar Targaryen's annulment of his marriage with Elia Martell]] is actually HarsherInHindsight. Though it did reveal an implication [[spoiler: that Jon is indeed the legitimate heir to the Iron Throne]], the fact that Rhaegar abandoned his wife and two children so [[LoveRuinsTheRealm he could be with Lyanna ignited a bloody civil war that destroyed thousands of lives and brought his house into ruin in the first place]]. This makes the man himself more of ''a selfish asshole'' [[DidntThinkThisThrough who never thought of the consequences]]. It also adds another tragic layer to Elia, who was not only snubbed by her husband, held captive in King's Landing at the mercy of the Mad King as a hostage and finally raped and brutally killed along with her children [[spoiler:but the annulment made her two children illegitimate and unable to inherit their father's titles]]. It also makes Oberyn's death and the destruction of House Martell more tragic; all because of [[YouCheatingHeart Rhaegar who wanted to be with his mistress]].

* Jaime is in the middle of a HeroicBSOD when Bronn hauls him out of the river. In one fell swoop, he's lost his army, his loot, and any illusions he might have had about winning a war against an enemy with three full-grown dragons. It starts to sink in for Jaime that his side is ''done.'' No matter how big an army they raise, no matter what clever tricks they try to throw at their opponent, no matter how defiantly they stand against the opposite side, ''they will lose the war''. You get the sense that maybe, he would rather have had Bronn let him drown.

* The sight of [[spoiler:Jorah Mormont]], locked in a cell in the Citadel, slowly succumbing to advanced stages of greyscale, and still hoping to hear that Daenerys has finally crossed the Narrow Sea. Thankfully she does now, but the possibility of the two reuniting and Jorah being cured of his illness is bleaker than ever.

** The Lannister soldier also hopes his baby's a girl because [[DramaticIrony "all boys do is go off to die in someone else's war."]] You have to wonder how long he's been feeling disillusioned with his job.

* [[spoiler: Even if you think [[KickTheSonOfABitch she slightly deserves it for her hand in Myrcella's death]], the revenge Cersei carries out on Ellaria and Tyene is a bit hard to watch. Cersei [[KissOfDeath kisses Ellaria's daughter Tyene]], who knows (even before Cersei reveals it) that Cersei has duplicated and taken the same poison that Ellaria used to murder Cersei's daughter Myrcella (the terrified, plaintive whimper of "Mama!" that Tyene makes as she realises what's happened to her is truly tear-jerking). And what's worse is, she does ''nothing'' to Ellaria, who she vows to keep alive to watch her last living daughter die. Unless something changes (and given that we never actually see their deaths, it might), the last image we may have of them alive is each struggling against their chains toward the other one inches away, desperately trying to reach and comfort each other in Tyene's final hours.]]

* For all that she's an utter scumbag, Cersei's grief and rage when she talks about Myrcella and how Ellaria murdered her is genuine enough to make you feel a little sorry for her, as you're reminded that [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes she's a mother who saw her beloved daughter]] killed for no reason but proxy revenge against her. She even confesses that she was so close to Myrcella that she broke with tradition and nursed her daughter herself, rather than handing her over to a wetnurse -- a very rare thing for a queen to do!

* A Lhazareen Dosh Khaleen reminisces how she was forced to marry her khal when she was just a 12-year old girl and after she gave birth to [[HeirClubForMen a female child]] in the following year, he broke her ribs. Another example how absolutely vile the [[NoWomansLand Dothraki culture]] is.

* In Winterfell, Sansa is doing her best to [[TheDutifulSon try and keep things together as Jonís regent]]. The Northern lords are restless, believing that the "King in the North should stay in the North," and as such, say that perhaps they should have chosen Sansa as their ruler. While Sansa publicly smooths things out and reasserts Jon's authority, Arya is suspicious of Sansaís motives and, in a private talk with her sister, reveals she believes Sansa didnít do an adequate job of defending Jon because she thinks Sansa wants to be queen herself. Arya also notes that [[ConflictingLoyalty Sansa also feels guilty about wanting this]] and Sansa doesn't even protest -- her face just [[TheWoobie says it all as it collapses into a wash of sadness and exhaustion.]]

** Really, the entire conversation between Jaime and Olenna can be seen as one for both parties involved: Olenna [[spoiler:faces death with dignity and graciously accepts the poison... but only because she's really got nothing left to live for after the deaths of her son and grandchildren]] and Jaime [[spoiler:essentially wins two battles in one at Casterly Rock and Highgarden... but is clearly unhappy about his continued submission to Cersei and has to deal with the fact that he let the murderess of his eldest son (and the woman who indirectly caused the downfall of the Lannister family) die a painless (and presumably quick) death]].

* Meera decides to go home so she can be with her family when the White Walkers come. She gives a heartfelt goodbye to Bran, and it's very obvious that she loves him. But all Bran says in response is a mere "thank you" for bringing him to the Three-Eyed Raven. Meera realizes that the Bran she loved died in the cave when he became the Three-Eyed Raven.

** Sansa's situation in this episode becomes this when you consider that Jon and Arya have more or less gotten everything they wanted or dreamed of as children. Jon gets acknowledged and accepted by society after dealing with BastardAngst all his life, Arya gets to be a badass ActionGirl and, upon returning to Winterfell, she gets to openly train and be an fighter without euphemisms or fig-leaf like "dancing master". [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg As for Bran]], he didn't get to be a knight, having become a cripple but he's beyond caring and has magical powers. Sansa, on the other hand, didn't get her dream of a happy marriage with family and children, and it's pretty clear that she has given up on that dream, and she takes the changes to the siblings hardest, heightening her greater loneliness, all the while putting on [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask the Lady mask]] to hide her real trauma.
* Theon makes his way back to Dragonstone where he reunites with Jon and asks him if Sansa is alright, only to be grabbed by the collar by Jon, who makes it clear that Theon rescuing Sansa is the only reason why Jon isn't [[ForgivenButNotForgotten killing him on the spot for betraying the Starks back in Season 2]]. When Davos inquires about Euron's attack on Yara's fleet and mentioned that everyone thought Theon died in the battle, Theon remarks [[SurvivorGuilt "I should be"]], clearly still haunted by abandoning his sister to Euron in addition to once again being [[NeverLiveItDown reminded of his betraying his adopted family]].

* {{Jerkass}} as he was, it's still somewhat heartbreaking to see Randyll Tarly go to his death. Not because of the man himself, who's a weapons-grade asshole, but because ''his son'' [[MoralityPet Dickon]] chooses to join him in death. Randyll barks at him to stay back in his [[PetTheDog only moment of humanity]], wanting his beloved son to survive. Dickon, however, is in full HonorBeforeReason mode and refuses to back down. Randyll accepts this with a small smile, proud of his son. Randyll and Dickon end up dying together, facing their end with dignity and fatherly love. Randyll may have been a massive asshole and Dickon a kind young man who died out of misplaced loyalty for his terrible father, but in the end, they died as father and son: together.

** It gets worse in one scene where Jaime tries to tell some of soldiers who are next to him to take cover when Drogon breathes his fire on them, where they strategically put up shields, not that it did them much good as there were still burned to dust. Jaime can't even look them as he glances away from the burning and when he does look at the them, you can read the sorrow from his expression as he watches what's left of the soldiers as their burnt ashes flow away.
