Jon Snow is [[RelativeButton devastated to hear about Ned's execution]], wants to avenge his father's death and saddles his horse to ride south, find his brother, and join his war. Sam, like [[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone another chubby boy]], tries to barr his way in vain. However, as Jon continues to ride, he sees others chasing him... Until, of course, one of them dashes himself to the ground on a low-hanging tree branch. Jon reins up and finds that his pursuers are Sam, Pyp and Grenn. They encircle and remind him of his oaths, and Jon relents.

He dismisses everyone except Tyrion and reforms his strategy session. He starts with pouring wine for Tyrion, which--to judge by Tyrion's expression--is a completely unprecedented courtesy. Lord Tywin will set The Mountain loose in the riverlands whilst the rest of his force regroups at Harrenhal. Tyrion is being dispatched to King's Landing, where he will work as Hand of the King in Tywin's stead, to control both Joffrey and Cersei. "You are my son," Lord Tywin says, which--to judge by Tyrion's expression--is another completely unprecedented event. Though Lord Tywin does attach a constraint: "You will not take that whore to court." Shae, of course, isn't having any of it; with a little bit of LoopholeAbuse, she helps Tyrion come to the decision he wanted to come to anyway.

Daenerys brings her sun-and-stars to their tent and begs him to return in every way she can. But before long she must admit defeat. There is no one to call back. She pushes a pillow down over his face, sobbing as his body begins its last feeble struggle.

Jon serves Lord Commander Mormont his breakfast, bleary-eyed from his midnight ride. Mormont knows about it, but has no intention of punishing Jon: brothers ride off for the night all the time, particularly to the whorehouse in nearby Mole's Town. "Honor made you leave, and honor brought you back," Mormont proclaims. ("My friends brought me back." "I didn't say it was ''your'' honor.") All the Old Bear wants to know is where Jon's loyalty actually lies. The cold winds are rising, the dead are coming back to life, and captured wildlings report that all their people are gathering together for unknown purposes. The Night's Watch will go ranging in force [[strike:next season]] tomorrow, two hundred strong, and Jon is invited to come with... but only if he's able to put his concerns about his family aside, and commit himself to the Night's Watch for good and all. The final shot is of Jon riding out through the tunnel that goes below the Wall, so one assumes that he has chosen to honor his vows. (Spoiler: he has.)

Ser Jorah finds her at dawn, huddled in the ashes, wedding gown burnt away but otherwise completely unharmed. She is not alone. As he and her kos approach, something climbs up onto her shoulder... It has horns and scales, two wide bat wings of sable and red. There's another wrapped around her leg which is cream and gold; a third, green and bronze, curls in her arm. Mormont and her Khalasar fall to their knees in awe. And, for the closing out of the season, we'll let GeorgeRRMartin's final paragraph do the honors:

"''As Daenerys Targaryen rose to her feet, her black ''hissed'', pale smoke venting from its mouth and nostrils. The other two pulled away from her breasts and added their voices to the call, translucent wings unfolding and stirring the air, and for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons.''"

In King's Landing, Sansa, her eyes red from weeping, is required to attend the court of King Joffrey, to whom she is still betrothed even after he murdered her father - those family dinners are sure going to be awkward. At the moment, His Grace is listening to a lovely ditty describing the latter days of Robert's reign (choice quote: "the lion ripped his balls off and the boar did all the rest."). Joffrey gives a SlowClap and then asks whether the singer would prefer to keep his fingers or his tongue: [[SadisticChoice pick one]]. (His mutilation forms a [[BlackComedy semi-comedic]] background to the remainder of the scene.) Joffrey then goes on to "flirt" with his fiancée, taking her out to the castle walls to see something. Specifically? [[DeadGuyOnDisplay Heads on spikes]]! Oh, Joffrey, you sure know how to show a girl a good time.

Joffrey gives a SlowClap and sarcastically compliments the minstrel: "Very amusing. Isn't it a funny song? Thank you for your rendition. I imagine it was even better received at that tavern." The frightened minstrel apologizes and swears he'll never sing the song again.

-->'''Dany:''' I spoke for you. I saved you.
-->'''Mirri:''' Saved me? Three of those riders had already raped me before you saved me, girl. I saw my God's house burn, there where I had healed men and women beyond counting. In the streets I saw piles of heads ... the head of the baker who makes my bread, the head of a young boy that I had cured of fever just three moons past. So tell me again exactly what it was that you saved?
-->'''Dany:''' Your life!
-->'''Mirri:''' Why don't you take a look at your Khal... Then you will see exactly what life is worth when all the rest has gone.

* NotAfraidToDie: Mirri freely admits to Daenerys what she did, knowing that she'll be executed for it. She doesn't care, because she already lost everything worth living for.

* DeathByAdaptation: Not so much "death" as "mutilation". In the books, Marillion shows up again, with his tongue very much intact. In the DVD commentary for the episode, the showrunners explain that they were aware of Marillion appearing in the third book, but they wanted to have him appear in the episode as opposed to a nameless minstrel [[WhatMeasureIsAMook that the audience wouldn't have any sort of attachment to.]]



* SchrodingersCat: in the books, Marillion shows up again, during events covered in [[Recap/GameOfThronesS4E5FirstOfHisName 4x05]] and [[Recap/GameOfThronesS4E7Mockingbird 4x07]], with both tongue and fingers intact. In the DVD commentary for the episode, the showrunners explain that they were aware of Marillion appearing in the third book, but they wanted to have him appear in the episode as opposed to a nameless minstrel [[WhatMeasureIsAMook that the audience wouldn't have any sort of attachment to.]]
