Stannis executes Mance Rayder , the leader of the wildlings, for refusing to submit to him, and marches south with his army to seek support in his bid for the throne.
Jon negotiates with Tormund Giantsbane to allow Tormund and his wildlings past the Wall in exchange for their assistance in defending it.
Jon prepares to head a rescue mission to Hardhome to save its stranded wildlings. Jon decides to march on Ramsay himself while Tormund will lead the ranging to Hardhome. Jon asks for volunteers to accompany him. They introduce Bran and his companions to the "last greenseer", an ancient man intertwined with the roots of a weirwood tree.
He helps Bran learn clairvoyant "greensight", enabling Bran to witness the past and present through the eyes of the weirwood trees that grow throughout the North. Tyrion is sent south with a party ostensibly to aid the exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen , who controls the only living dragons , in claiming the Iron Throne.
Tyrion persuades Aegon to invade Westeros immediately, without waiting for Daenerys. When they temporarily afflict her with blindness, Arya develops her sense of hearing, and realizes that she can "see" through cats the same way she could with her pet direwolf, Nymeria.
After doing so, Arya is declared an apprentice of the Faceless Men, to be sent to another assassin to continue her training. Drogon, the largest, evades capture and flies off. Despite her sexual relationship with the mercenary Daario Naharis , Daenerys marries the Meereenese nobleman Hizdahr zo Loraq to secure an alliance to appease the Sons of the Harpy.
Jorah and Tyrion are shipwrecked, kidnapped, and sold to a Yunkish slave trader. In Meereen, Tyrion escapes in the mass confusion of the plague ravaging the Yunkish army, joins the Second Sons mercenary group, and secures their support for Daenerys.
Meanwhile, another Westerosi, Victarion Greyjoy , sails for Meereen, intending to marry Daenerys and use her dragons to overthrow his brother, the king of the Ironborn.
Daenerys climbs onto Drogon to calm him but he flies away with her. Hizdahr is implicated in an attempt to poison Daenerys. Her advisor, Barristan Selmy , removes Hizdahr from power, and the Sons of the Harpy resume their killing. Barristan prepares for battle with the armies outside Meereen. Quentyn attempts to prove his worth by riding one of the remaining dragons but is killed and both dragons are released.
Drogon flies Daenerys to the Dothraki Sea , the grassland controlled by the nomadic Dothraki people. After several days, Daenerys encounters a Dothraki horde led by Khal Jhaqo. Much of the region is occupied by the Ironborn. Stannis wins the support of the northern lords and hill clans by pledging support for the Starks and fighting off the Ironborn.
He marches his forces toward Winterfell to attack the Boltons, but his army is halted by bad weather conditions. Ramsay abuses Jeyne physically and sexually. Brienne of Tarth , whom Jaime had sent to search for Sansa Stark, finds Jaime and tells him Sansa is in danger; he follows after her.
After Tyrion convinces Aegon to attack Westeros, Aegon and his forces capture several castles in the Stormlands with little resistance. To gain release from her imprisonment, she confesses to several of the lesser charges against her, but does not confess to having murdered her husband King Robert Baratheon , nor that her children are the product of incest. As a condition of her release, Cersei is forced to walk naked across the city as the smallfolk pelt her with rotten vegetables and insults.
