Game of Thrones Star Aidan Gillen Reveals Littlefinger's True Feelings for Sansa

Stills from "Game of Thrones" season six, episode four, "Book of the Stranger".

Meanwhile Daario and Jorah have also made their progress in their "difficult task", but the task has not been revealed, while Jamie and Cersei try to improve their situation.

When Game of Thrones viewers last saw Littlefinger, he was back in King's Landing to broker a deal with Cersei (Lena Headey) after leaving Sansa (Sophie Turner) at Winterfell to be married off to the barbaric Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon). Hopefully the third time is the charm for a Stark reunion if Sansa is at Castle Black.

Littlefinger is back to pulling strings.

And as a bonus, we get to see Ser Davos and Brienne in the same place: how he will react to the news that she removed his master's head might inspire some fireworks. One can't bet on the willful and precocious heir to Vale, but it'll be interesting to the turn politics has taken in this part of the kingdom. Theon has returned to the Iron Isles, but Yara is not happy with her brother's current condition. With more exposition to plough through and more characters being added to the cast, that much was pretty inevitable, and it wasn't a bad episode by any means.

The Tyrells and the Lannisters seemingly come together to free Margaery and Loras from the Faith.

Tyrion is trying to keep the masters at bay in Mereen as he struggles to explain the absence of the Queen. In any case, with Drogon still on the loose, I'd be surprised if she doesn't end up rescuing herself.

Even with the much-appreciated (but way too grim) deaths of Ollie and Alliser Thorne, and the bad return of Rickon, "Oathbreaker" turned out to be a quieter episode compared to the explosive opening two of season 6. Who do you think it'll be?
