Characters to Watch

Randyl Tarly, Jaime Lannister, Queen Cersei, and Qyburn
Cersei demands loyalty from the Tyrell bannermen, but receives a wary response. Jaime seeks to forge an Alliance with Randyll Tarly appealing to his hatred of foreign savages. He seems hesitant to betray Olenna, but does not outright dismiss the notion. Meanwhile Qyburn unveils to Cersei a weapon he claims capable of killing a dragon.

Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish
He hasn’t really done anything yet, just a lot of looks, some prodding statements to Sansa, and a little provoking of Jon. He’s definitely up to something as we know his eyes are forever fixed on the Iron Throne, but his interaction with Jon is interesting. It recalls one Littlefinger had with Ned in season 1 and we all know how well that worked out for Ned…
