Jon Snow makes Sansa the head of Winterfell

Shortly after Melisandre and Daenerys' meeting, a raven was immediately sent out to Winterfell, summoning Jon Snow to Dragonstone to pledge his allegiance to the real queen. Sansa Stark and Jon Snow hesitated at first but when word from Samwell Tarly came, claiming that the dragon glass they needed to use against the White Walkers were in Dragonstone, Jon Snow immediately set out to the island in Blackwater Bay with Davos Seaworth.

Jon Snow's decision was met with disagreement from the houses but he had no choice because only the King of the North can convince a queen to fight with them. As the only Stark left, Winterfell was left in Sansa's hands and Jon Snow made sure to warn Little Finger not to touch his sister.

Cersei's secret weapon against the dragons

Cersei Lannister has started rounding up more allies, summoning and threatening various houses to pledge their loyalty to the Iron Throne and the Lannisters.

However, she can also convince them to join if she comes up with a plan to defeat the dragons.

Under the castle in King's Landing lies the graveyard of slain dragons during the war against the Mad King. Cersei referred to it as Robert Baratheon's trophy room and it unveiled a traditional yet powerful weapon that can penetrate dragon's skin and bones.

On her way home, Arya ran into a pack of wolves led by her long lost direwolf, Nymeria.
