* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Stannis.
** After the North ceases hostilities with the Westerlands, he [[spoiler: uses a shadow baby to assassinate Tywin, knowing that Tywin's death will greatly weaken the Westerlands.]]
** Also, he [[spoiler: uses Melisandre's magic to wreck havoc on the Reach's armies. He also takes Loras and Margaery hostage, forcing Mace to commit his troops to Stannis's cause.]]
** The Great Other is implied to be this as well since it [[spoiler: takes advantage of Jon and Sam's knowledge of the wildling legend about it turning into a CreepyChild to goad Val and Jon into killing an innocent little girl it had possessed to observe Jon.]]

* AdultFear: [[spoiler: When a maester comes to the conclusion that the grey ash falling all over Westeros came from a volcano - the only active volcano in Westeros being Dragonstone - Stannis is horrified at the possibility that his wife and daughter might have been killed. The Starks also realizes that Gendry is almost certainly dead and possibly Arya as well. Fortunately, all four of them turn up alive at Duskendale.]]

* BookEnds: the story begins when Varys lightly poisons Joffrey to prevent him from ordering Ned executed. [[spoiler:At the end, after Eddard dies, he finds his way to the [[MundaneAfterlife Ancestors' Hall]] and finds Varys there, rewarded in such way for saving Eddard - although Varys jokingly wonders where's the reward in the Northern version of heaven, where the wine is not decent and beds, apparently, aren't either.]]

** Oberyn intends to have all Lannisters, Stannis Baratheon and Ned Stark killed for being peripherally related to Elia's death.
