Tonight's major Game of Thrones lesson: Listen. To. After all, she did just casually drop the single most significant piece of information in the show's seven seasons during Sunday night's gripping filler episode ("Eastwatch"). It turns out, one of the maesters annulled Rhaegar Targaryen's marriage and then Wednesday him to another woman in secret.

Benjen Stark Saves (Part of) the Day: Dead-ish Benjen Stark said he still fights for the living, and he promised Bran and Meera he would fight as hard as he can for as long as he can. "But it's just been so great to be back on set and seeing some old faces".
