In this, the 56th episode of Game of Thrones, we finally visit Horn Hill, the seat of House Tarly. Did we previously know that we had been waiting all this time to visit Horn Hill? No, we did not. But now that we have, it kind of feels like the series could end right here because look at this beautiful freaking castle.
What a beautiful and tasteful castle. All the fine craftsmanship of the Red Keep without any of the over-the-top gaudiness; all the castle-ness of Winterfell without looking like a depressing barracks. Horn Hill is where it's at. And the interiors do not disappoint either.
Look at all those candles. Look at that huge decorative fireplace. Look at how well the dining room table and chairs go together. This is the kind of place that a young Wildling probable-product-of-incest would be happy to spend the rest of her—oh, what's that, Sam? You're leaving immediately? Great.
This is probably the last we'll ever see of Horn Hill, which is at least as big a tragedy as any of the numerous deaths that have occurred in the previous 56 hours of the series. Before he goes Sam does a little redecorating and takes down the Valyrian steel sword, which, to be fair, was clashing a bit with the rest of the decor.
Meanwhile, in Braavos, Arya is on the move again. She has vacated the House of Black and White and has moved into a nook in an alleyway. Looks comfy!
