SAN DIEGO, May 17, 2014 – The episode title for this week’s episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” refers to the personal sigil of Petyr Baelish, a black mockingbird. What kind of song will he sing – and will it be true?

At the Eyrie, Sansa Stark, hiding under the alias Alayne Stone as Littlefinger’s niece, wonders what will become of her life. When snow begins to fall, the landscape may become clear to her.

Brienne and Podrick Payne continue their effort to find Sansa and return her to King’s Landing. What they learn along the way is troublesome.

Tyrion Lannister’s trial has come to a screeching halt . Tyrion exercised his right to a “trial by combat.” This worked for him when he was a prisoner of the Stark women at the Eyrie. Now he must use all of his wits to avoid being found guilty of poisoning his nephew, King Joffrey.

Will it work again? He must find a champion to fight for him, and he finds a surprising ally who will face the champion chosen by Cersei Lannister, who represents Joffrey.

This storyline has put the talented actor Peter Dinklage front and center, a treat for fans of the show. Dinklage was at his best in the last episode, letting emotions wash over his face like shifting light as the sun sets: determined, angry, heartbroken.

In Meereen, Danaerys Targaryen is met with more unrest by her new subjects. Her ways are not yet their ways, and the culture clash is building resentments. Daario Naharis tries to convince Danaerys to let him help solve this problem for her.

Jon Snow knows what’s coming for the men of the Night’s Watch, and warns his leaders that the Wall is vulnerable as never before. Will they listen to him?

In this episode we also see the Red Priestess, Melisandre, and Shireen Baratheon, the disfigured daughter of Stannis Baratheon. They read the prophecy of the flames together.

We will also see another character in action for the first time in many months: The Mountain, Gregor Clegane, the bigger, meaner brother of The Hound, Sandor Clegane. The Mountain is the person responsible for the death of Prince Oberyn’s sister, Elia Martell, and her children, Targaryen heirs to the Iron Throne.

Prince Oberyn won’t let The Mountain’s return go unacknowledged. He has been waiting to set things right for a long time.
