State of Oldtown

So this will be a short one since not much has happened in Oldtown. In my opinion its main purpose this season was as a plot device for the set up of the next season. I’m hoping to do one more of these before the show starts. The last one will be looking at the Wall and Eastwatch by the Sea.
