** Having their own ways, the wildings don't join in declaring Jon the King in the North. However, when Lord Manderly dubs him the White Wolf, a couple of them raise their drinks in salute.
*** Then there is the fact that the wildings were there. Their presence is likely still a sore spot for much of the Northern lords, as well as the Knights of the Vale, but Jon isn't going to deny their contribution and their involvement.

** The gratitude Drogo shows to Jorah counts as well, stating that he knows what Jorah did for Dany, and offers him his choice of stallion - a ''very'' generous reward, given how revered horses are in Dothraki culture.

* From Maester Aemon's confession to Jon that he would have done anything for his brother's grandchildren and great-grandchildren if he had his youth and energy -- or even his ''sight'' -- at the time of Robert's Rebellion, it's clear he still consideres himself a Targaryen as much as a brother of the Night's Watch. This is made even more heartwarming by the fact that Aemon is actually [[spoiler:telling this to one of the 'little children' of the Targaryen.]]

* Gendry defending Arya from Hot Pie and Lommy's bullying because he [[BullyHunter doesn't like people who pick on smaller boys,]] cementing him as a rare heroic character. It's also the beginning of his friendship with Arya--one of the most genuine and trusting relationships on the show.

** Gendry's reaction to her real identity is rather sweet too, as he worries that he's been rude to a lady and apologizes for - among other things - using the word cock in front of her. Given the relentless violence and chaos surrounding them it's funny to see Gendry worrying about exposing her to foul language. [[RebelliousPrincess Arya being Arya]], she tells him she's not a real lady and things quickly return to their old friendship.

You would not only be respected and feared, ''you would be loved''. Someone who ''can'' rule and ''should'' rule, centuries come and go without a person like that coming into the world. There are times - when I look at you -- and I still can't believe you're ''real''.

* Tyrion and Cersei: sure they hate each other, but that doesn't mean Tyrion can't feel sympathy for Cersei regarding the little hellspawn she has to call a son. He can at least reassure her that the other two turned out all right, and Cersei seems to have just enough residual feeling for him to honestly trust him in her moment of weakness. If anything, it's made all the more poignant by the usual tone of their conversations - this is a rare glimpse at how the Lannister siblings ''could'' have turned out, under a better father.

* Tyrion and Shae's scene in bed. He admits with little sarcasm how genuinely afraid he is, and her response is to seriously and earnestly promise she'll protect him. Then, he shows concern for her getting hurt in a war she has no part in, and she simply answers she does have a vested concern in this war, i.e. him. Finally, she reminds him of what he said the first time they met- only, when they met, he used a four-letter word, and here, she says, "That I should make love to you like it was your last day on this earth." The next episode makes it even clearer, but this scene shows Shae is no longer trading sex and her companionship for money. Just as he's fallen in love with her, she's fallen in love with him.

** On the same note, despite the fairly harsh tearjerker, Arya insisting that she'll be Gendry's family when he says he's never had one. And he's the one who brings up their class differences not her. In a show full of nobles who couldn't care less about the ordinary people getting hurt in their squabbles Arya - from one of the most powerful families in Westeros - values a butcher's son as much as any royal and views an armorer's apprentice as part of her family.

* In a way the whole wedding feast and the fact that virtually everyone present is disgusted at Joffrey's skit and abuse of Tyrion. Throughout his posturing you see every major character - from Margaery, Loras and Olenna, Tywin, Jaime, Tommen and Tyrion himself, Sansa and Brienne, Varys and Pycelle, Oberyn of Dorne and Ellaria - ''all'' looking uncomfortable and disapproving. Cersei is the sole person who finds his behavior amusing. Yes, most of the guests are ruthless plotters and have committed horrible acts of their own for various reasons but it says something that none of them relish in war and torturing others for the sake of it the way Joffrey does. Their universal disgust at his actions may well be the biggest moment of unity in the whole series.

** What kind of King does Tommen want to be? A ''good'' one. And then his answers to what makes a good King - holiness, justice, strength and finally wisdom. It's a far cry from his older brother's view on kingship and a faint hope that the Lannister's might actually produce a decent ruler.

* Arya's fury over the Hound betraying and robbing the kindly farmer and his daughter. At this point Arya has witnessed countless atrocities and - as Sandor mentions - her parents and brother were killed largely because they were too trusting. But despite everything she's still disgusted at hurting innocent people to benefit her own survival.

And that they're rare companions who will actually be able to trust each other. Such happy turns of events are rare to find.

At this point Ned, Catelyn and Robb have all been massacred; Arya, Bran and Rickon are assumed dead; Sansa in the hands of the Stark's enemies and Jon - a bastard in the Night's Watch - is the only one left in the North at all. Are the Northern houses bending their knee to the Boltons, Lannisters or even Stannis? Nope, in the words of a ''ten year old girl'': "Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is Stark." It really tells you how beloved the Starks were that there are still people supporting them.

It's the kind of ToughLove that befits the ironborn, yes, but it's clear that she wants him to regain his Season 1-2 confidence - and when he affirms that yes, Theon Greyjoy is still there and not at all ready to give up, the characteristically biting and aloof Yara actually ''hugs'' him and kisses his forehead, the first gesture of love anyone's given him in years.

When Pod mentions Brienne has been teaching him to fight, Bronn offers to teach him some more pragmatic moves. The whole interaction comes off like an older and younger brother - despite the two ''technically'' being on opposite sides of the conflict (Pod squiring for Sansa Stark's sworn sword in Brienne, and Bronn acting as something of a lieutenant[=/=]bodyguard for Jaime Lannister). Given that last episode Bronn was bummed about the whole not getting paid and still having to work it's clear that Pod made his week.

** Following the DownerEnding of the previous episode, the murders of Ray and his flock seemed to show for certain that the Brotherhood Without Banners had gone to [[HeWhoFightsMonsters the dark side]]. Many viewers feared a major offscreen FaceHeelTurn for Thoros and Beric, especially given that in this [[BlackAndGrayMorality consistently]] [[CrapsackWorld crappy]] world, armies that care for the common man last about as long as a glass shotgun. Not so - Beric and Thoros are as heroic as ever, and now they've got ''Sandor Clegane'' on their side.

I'd swear you my sword, but I don't actually own a sword.\\

* It's subtle but Oberyn doesn't seem to share the same discrimination against dwarves that most of Westeros does and his cynical reaction indicates he's one of the only people who recognizes Tyrion's trial is a sham. He's thoroughly apathetic about the whole process but he's not going to go along with Tywin's judgement the way Mace Tryell is and may well be the only judge who would have based his verdict on the truth not spitefulness or weaknesses.

** Especially heartwarming given the context: Despite how close the pair became, previous episodes showed Gendry felt insecure due to Arya's noble status and thought their friendship wouldn't survive her returning to her proper position. (Which was why he stayed with the Brotherhood rather than going on with her in the first place). Now he's gone and Arya's still on the way to her noble family but she hasn't just forgotten him, is mourning deeply and committed to avenging him. Never underestimate how much Arya Stark cares for her friends - no matter their status.

** On that note, outside of Arya's close family, who does she want to avenge? A fighting instructor, a butcher's boy and a bastard from Flea's Bottom. Because they were all her friends and that's enough for her.

(Which was why he stayed with the Brotherhood rather than going on with her in the first place). Now he's gone and Arya's still on the way to her noble family but she hasn't just forgotten him, is mourning deeply and committed to avenging him. Never underestimate how much Arya Stark cares for her friends - no matter their status.
