* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Tyrion is shocked to learn that even though none of the smallfolk of King's Landing like the Lannisters, they hate ''him'' most of all.

* NotSoDifferent: During Renly & Stannis' parley, Catelyn points out that they are both usurpers who are trying to take the thrones from their nephew.
