Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 5 Discussion Explanation

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 5 "The Door" discussion. Spoilers Ahead

-Sansa confronts Little Fingers about the damage done by Bolton.
-Arya continues getting trained and is given another chance from the Faceless. She has to assassinate someone at the great travelling play group. Arya decides to poison the rum, but asks questions of which she receives no answers. She's mainly interested in why they want to kill such a random individual at the play.
-The children of the tree made the Whitewalkers, Bran discovers this in another jump to the past. It was apparently to assist the children against men, which is an interesting tweak.
-Theon decides to promote his sister as their new Queen through a big cheer. His uncle then appears to claim the throne. Their unlce wins the crowd's applaude and then Greyjoy siblings escape with some of the fleet. Smart choice as they would have probably been killed by their unlce as he did their father. I'm assuming the crew will join the Stark's for an epic battle. The uncle's plan was also to go and marry the Dragon Queen with his massive fleet he'll be building.
-Tyrion and Varys talk to Lord of Light belief spreaders to gain some assistance in building up the Queen's reputation.
-Bran meets the Whitewalker army close up. They mark him and he must leave so who knows what will happen.
-Sansa and Jon begin planning their approach, Brienne is sent to speak to Sansa's uncle in order to gain support. It would appear that this season might be working towards an epic battle finale.
-The Whitewalker have come for Bran and company, it's not looking good. The children have badass bombs that incinerate the walker zombies, it doesn't halt their progress. In the battle a single Whitewalker is killed by a dragon glass spear, the Direwolf holds them off and dies in the process while the others escape. Bran is the one that makes Hodor say Hodor because of him alterting the past whcih makes "Hold the Door" so Bran can escape. A sad moment that was beautifully well done.
