The Independent reports "The Queen's Revenge" set fandom ablaze with an already-popular fan theory: that Arya Stark will assassinate the always-scheming courtier played by Aidan Gillen. She bonds with Sansa over the fact that the artist screwed up Ned Stark's statue and the fact that both have suffered hardships in their time away from Wintefrell.

Back in Dragonstone, Jon Snow is still trying to win Daenerys to his cause, now with the convenient assistance of an ancient cave drawn storyboard, deep in the dragonglass mines, which depicts two ancient foes united against a common enemy.

By now, the Starks are well aware that the Lannisters are their enemies. Bran is a subject that can't be wooed in the same way that so many others have been wooed by Littlefinger, and he shows up there trying to gain an ally in Bran, and discovers that he's encountering a sort of unmovable force.

Bran: "Chaos is a ladder." . In Season 6, Bran became the Three-Eyed Raven, which basically means he can see all and knows everything that has ever happened.

Because of the unusual glance exchanged between Sansa and her incessant, murderous suitor, some fans have theorized that she will ultimately kill him as penance for the way he has manipulated her and demolished her once happy family. How did Baelish get the dagger back? Pop Sugar made a handy list of the seven people on her kill list who are still alive.
