A Game of Thrones Chapter 52 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Unlike Arya, who escaped, Sansa was taken captive and held prisoner by Lannister forces for three days.
  • When she's let out, they bring her to Cersei and the small council; and Cersei uses Sansa's "love" for Joffrey to convince her to write letters to her family asking them not to start a civil war.
