There were a lot of power exchanges — and clothing changes — on Sunday night's episode of "Game of Thrones." We also have a few weddings to talk about. (Oy, Sansa.) And breaking news: Arya got a new dress! Yes, for the first time since season one, Arya gets to wear something other than boys' rags. Also, while we didn't get to see Daenerys at all this episode, the cosplaying prostitute doppelganger was a nice touch. I'm predicting the bare butt version of her blue dress will be all the rage this Halloween, at least in some circles.

Maisie Williams must have been thrilled to finally shed the crusty costume she had to wear for the last three seasons and don this comfy-looking, if slightly Sister Wives-ish dress. I almost cried when she was contemplating what to do with Needle, though. Who knew you could get so attached to weapons?

Sun-In Streak?

Here we see Jaqen H'ghar without his hood on, only to reveal a classic '90s blond streak. Or maybe it's gray. Regardless, I think I had the same thing in 1998. Tutorial? Also I really like this grungy spa they're all hanging out in.

I'm happy to see that Margaery did not re-wear her wedding dress from the infamous Purple Wedding. This one is looking nicely regal and more importantly, everyone made it through without dying.

There's nothing like mocking your mother-in-law about her age and diminishing power with your perky, creamy cleavage hanging out.

New Strong Lady Character Alert

Actress Rila Fukushima — a former model — is listed as "Red Priestess" on her IMDB page. I have no idea if she'll return again, but I hope so.  Her eyebrows tell me she's powerful.

These two are so sweet together that it's certainly inevitable they'll be killed off in some horrible manner. Brienne's sad story of the boys making fun of her is heartbreaking. Pod should ask her to his prom.

Littlefinger and Sansa are pretty much wearing the exact same outfit here. I am really hoping that this new ass-kicking Sansa can handle that psychopath Ramsey Bolton and that she doesn't end up wearing her own flayed skin as a wedding gown. I have high hopes that Reek née Theon Greyjoy will come to his senses and help her.
