Can we ever escape who we really are? House Slate hosts Marc Faletti and Amanda Marcotte celebrate Arya's return to self and mourn Jaime's reclamation of his Lannister identity. (The jury's still out on what this all means for the Hound.) In Game of Thrones, people can run, but their true selves find them in the end. 

Amanda and Marc also have some theories about what, exactly, Qyburn was talking about when he said that certain rumors are confirmed. Has the Mad King Aerys been reborn in the Bitter Queen Cersei?

Marc Faletti is the director of multimedia for Rewire and is based in Brooklyn.

Amanda Marcotte is writer for Salon.

Daniel Hubbard is a writer, editor, and director living in New York City.
