With The Door, Game of Thrones gave us one of the most mind-bending episodes of the show to date... and also one of the most heartbreaking.
From start to finish, and from Castle Black to Beyond-The-Wall (via Essos) it was absolutely thrilling and captivating stuff. It progressed the various plots of the season nicely (with the exception of King's Landing, which took a week off), and set things up for the remainder of the year, as well as a potential game-changer for the entire series, which opens it up to a new realm of possibilities.
With Sansa and Jon busy preparing for war, Arya continuing her training but facing her past, an emotional moment between Jorah and his Khaleesi, a new player on the scene in Meereen, a new King of the Iron Islands, and of course that ending, it all added up to the best episode of Season 6 so far, and indeed an instant classic instalment of Thrones. It also means that the fallout from all of those storylines will be felt across the show, certainly in the short-term, but for much longer in some cases.
Once the shock has worn off and the tears have started to dry, The Door left us with a lot of questions.
10. Will Arya Kill The Actress?
Arya's storyline continues to make some progress this week, as after getting beaten by the Waif (again, though she's getting better) she is given a second chance at being no one, and sent to watch a play.
The reason for that is she has a new target: the lead actress in Westerosi comedy, who plays Cersei Lannister. Although Cersei is a name on Arya's kill list, it's the actress added to no one's, but will she be able to go through with it?
Although she has a plan for how it could happen, there's plenty of suggestion in this episode (and previous ones) that she's still got a lot of Arya Stark inside her, and it remains to be seen whether she'll take this next step on the path to becoming a Faceless Man.
