General Notes

The Seven Regional Capitals
With the appearance of Casterly Rock and Highgarden in this episode, every regional capital of the Seven Kingdoms has appeared on-screen at least once.
Two exceptions:
  • Storm’s End – It was intended for Storm’s End to appear in Season 2, but due to budget limits it did not – though characters do state in dialogue that they are “in the Stormlands” when at Renly’s army camp by the coast.
  • Sunspear – The TV series didn’t actually depict Dorne’s capital Sunspear on-screen, simply a truncated version of the Water Gardens, a nearby private retreat of House Martell.

How quickly things can change

In the Inside the Episode video for the preceding episode, showrunners Benioff and Weiss praised that the four major political figures at Daenerys’s council scene on Dragonstone were all women:

  • Daenerys herself, and her allies Yara Greyjoy, Ellaria Sand, and Olenna Tyrell, who all joined her faction in the Season 6 finale.
  • Within a single episode, all of these female political allies have been swept away: Yara and Ellaria captured, and now Olenna defeated and forced to commit suicide.
