The Ariya/Frey thing was more than enough to make this one of the best episodes of the season, but so much more was packed into that episode...
Re: Varis, I'm fine with timelines not syncing up exactly. I can buy that stuff all taking place pretty spread out. Hell, Little Sam looks like he aged significantly since just earlier in the season, and just the time it'd take Jamie to get from the Frey's to King's Landing is a long time I'd wager... I'm fine with assuming the times don't sync exactly with one another and that a single episode can span a long period of time itself.
Great episode... Last week was awesome, but this was that much better.
Was discussing this with a friend tonight... So technically, at this point, the rightful heir to the throne, from the Targaryan POV, would be Jon, not Daeny, right? Likewise, Sansa wouldn't be the heir to the North, Bran would... and Dorne and Herenhall are kind of both in shambles, family-wise, as is the Lannister family on the Iron Throne itself since their claim was never legit and now it's even less so.
Hmmm. That's a real mess. But it puts Daeny and Jon at odds, it puts Jon and Sansa at odds. It puts Bran and Sansa at odds. And everyone hates Cersi, basically.
And at this point there's like, what? One Beratheon left and last anyone saw him he was floating away from Sir Davos somewhere. It seems to me the Game of Thrones is running really low on players, from the POV of the major houses of Westeros.
