In the wake of a bloody purge in the capital, Tyrion chastens Cersei for alienating the king’s subjects. On the road north, Arya shares a secret with Gendry, a Night’s Watch recruit. With supplies dwindling, one of Dany's scouts returns with news of their position. After nine years as a Stark ward, Theon Greyjoy reunites with his father Balon, who wants to restore the ancient Kingdom of the Iron Islands. Davos enlists Salladhor Saan, a pirate, to join forces with Stannis and Melisandre for a naval invasion of King’s Landing.
The scene opens, and Arya taunts prisoners in a cage, who think she's the boy Ary. Gendry warns her to stay away. She hides when she sees riders from King's Landing. She thinks they're there for her; and is visibly terrified by the thought. The soldier cites a warrant for someone, but the leader of the caravan holds a knife to his balls. He announces they're looking for a boy called Gendry with a bull's head helmet and there's a reward; for anyone who can give any information about the boy. They ride off, threatening to be back later for his head. The camp eyes Gendry. In the castle, Tyrion comes home to find Shae chatting with Lord Varys. She told Varys they met in Tywin's kitchen. ..Read the full recap
Tyrion Lannister: Tell me, when your men slaughtered Ned Stark's men at the throne room, did you give the orders?
Janos Slynt: I did, and I would again. The man was a traitor. He tried to buy my loyalty.
Tyrion Lannister: The fool. He had no idea you were already bought.
Janos Slynt: Are you drunk? I won't have my honor questioned by an imp!
Tyrion Lannister: I'm not questioning your honor, Lord Janos. I'm denying its existence.
Arya Stark: You're a liar.
Gendry: You know you shouldn't insult people that are bigger than you are.
Arya Stark: Then I wouldn't get to insult anyone.
Balon Greyjoy: Who gave you those clothes? Is it Ned Stark's pleasure to make you his daughter?
Theon Greyjoy: My clothes offend you, I will change them.
Balon Greyjoy: You will. That bauble 'round your neck, did you pay the iron price for it or the gold? I asked a question. Did you pull it from the neck of a corpse you made or did you buy it to match your fine clothes? Iron or gold?
Theon Greyjoy: Gold.
Petyr Baelish: Sometimes those with the most power have the least grace.
Salladhor Saan: I've been all over the world, my boy, and everywhere I go people tell me about the 'true gods', they all think they found the right one. The one true god is what's between a woman's legs, and better yet a queen's legs.
Arya Stark: Gendry's an armorer's apprentice. Hot Pie, tell Gendry what makes a fight into a battle.
Hot Pie: It's, um...when they've got armor on.
Gendry: And who told you that?
Hot Pie: A knight.
Gendry: How'd you know he was a knight?
Hot Pie: Well...'cause he's got armor on.
Gendry: You don't have to be a knight to buy armor. Any idiot can buy armor.
Hot Pie: How do you know?
Gendry: 'Cause I sold armor.
Cersei Lannister: You want to be Hand of the King? You want to rule? This is what ruling is; lying on a bed of weeds, ripping them out by the root, one by one, before they strangle you in your sleep!
Tyrion Lannister: I'm no king, but I think there's more to ruling than that.
Cersei Lannister: I don't care what you think! You've never taken it seriously; you haven't, Jaime hasn't! It's all fallen on me.
Tyrion Lannister: As has Jaime repeatedly, according to Stannis Baratheon.
Cersei Lannister: You're funny. You've always been funny, but none of your jokes will match the first one, will they? Do you remember, back when you ripped my mother open on your way out of her and she bled to death?
Tyrion Lannister: She was my mother too.
Cersei Lannister: Mother gone, for the sake of you. There's no bigger joke in the world than that.
