( CNN) The following contains major spoilers from the August 6 episode of “Game of Thrones.”

The episode actually began in rather understated style, focusing on the most recent reunion of the Stark infants, and drawing attention to the metamorphoses that they have undergone in their efforts to survive over the last six seasons.

Arya( Maisie Williams ), for example, presented off her assassin skills after a meeting with her sister Sansa( Sophie Turner ), which demonstrated both tender and tentative. Both accepted the changes and challenges they had undergone, with Arya offering a ray of hope by saying, “Our tales aren’t over yet.”
