We open on an important flashback for Cersei that I think will set the tone of her story arc for the rest of the season. After that we pick up the action right where season four left off. Of our surviving characters only Arya, Bran (and co.) and Reek are missing from this episode. We see whats up at Kings Landing, the Wall, Meeren, and visit with Brienne and Pod, Varys and Tyrion. I wonder where in the seven kingdoms Littlefinger and Alayne are off to.
