Arya tells Sansa "In winter, we must protect ourselves. Look after one another" what their father told her before ("Lord Snow"). It is almost the same sentence Eddard tells Arya in the parallel book scene. Sansa then tells Arya "When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives" - which is exactly the previous sentence Eddard tells Arya at the same book scene.

Holy smokes... This has truly been something else
27 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

It happens often that you stumble upon a great movie or great series, but I've never watched something with more interest, with more attention and with more passion than this show, and especially this episode right here.

From astonishing dragon sequences to beautiful love scenes, from revelation to elimination, from pride to wisdom, from scenery to camera work and from scoring to superb acting, this episode has it all.

This episode alone should keep us warm for the next year and a half.
