** Margaery and Littlefinger's entire exchange in the camp. Both of them are overflowing with genteel courtesy, while he needles her about her new husband's [[TransparentCloset: proclivities]] and she mocks him for his romantic failures while making entirely clear where her loyalties lie.

* {{Irony}}: Tywin arrives at Harrenhal just in time to save the two people the Lannister's ''seriously'' want dead - the last Baratheon bastard (Gendry) and missing Stark daughter (Arya). (Literally just in time as Gendry was about to be tortured to death and Arya had caught the soldier's eye). He even specifically singles the pair out as useful and smart prisoners to keep around.

And we cut to Arya Stark with Hot Pie and Gendry. They approach '''Harrenhal''', and it's a foreboding, mucky looking place -- its fortifications look as if they've been weathered and sloughed off. "What kind of fire melts stone?" asks Gendry. "Dragonfire," she replies. "There's dragons here?" Hot Pie asks meekly. Gendry replies that they're all dead. The fat boy asks what the smell is. "Dead people", Arya says simply. Hot Pie quails and a Lannister guardsman shoves them to the side. We see listless prisoners watching as [[ScreamDiscretionShot people are tortured]] [[GoryDiscretionShot horribly]]... one of the prisoners, an old lady remarks dully of the deaths of all of her family in the days past... the screams they heard just then were her son's. "They take someone every day," Gendry says. It's pissing rain in the next scene, and the roughed up prisoners are attempting to sleep. Arya whispers a long series of names... Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne to name a few. Just like [[BadAss Yoren]] did, as we learned in the last episode.

Added DiffLines:

* NobleDemon: Not only is Tyron (by far) the most sympathetic of the Lannisters, he seems to be the only one who can actually keep Joffrey in check. At least for the moment.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCaligula: Joffrey has always been deeply unpleasant, but his sadism and total lack of humanity really go on display in this episode. He seems to have developed a taste for having women beaten and threatened with death for his own amusement. The scene with Ros suggests he has little interest in sex, but plenty of interest in the pain of others.

We return to '''Harrenhal''', and Arya's awoken by the angry shouts of Lannister soldiers. They're "questioning" prisoners now. The Mountain, the hulk of a man runs an eye over the prisoners personally. They pick a random boy... and proceed to question him. We see Hot Pie's breeches expanding rapidly as he watches. They tie him down, place a bucket over his chest with a rat inside while moving a torch ever closer to it. "Where is the brotherhood?" one of them asks. The frightened prisoner repeats that he doesn't know, and the exchange continues until the rat begins digging into his chest and he gives in. "You've been very helpful," says the questioner, and they leave the torch to burn away the bucket as the frightened rat tears into the poor guy. We get another ScreamDiscretionShot. It cuts to Arya sleeping again still reciting her list of people, and when she watches the same old woman feebly request one of the Lannisters -- "Polliver" for bread, he brutally silences her. So Arya adds Polliver and the Mountain's names to her ever-growing list...

For our last scene we find ourselves somewhere in '''the Stormlands''', aboard a Baratheon ship: it's got a stag figurehead at the prow, and it's also got Ser Davos and King Stannis aboard. Stannis asks about the little leather pouch the Onion Knight wears at his neck, and is surprised to discver that it has the remains of Davos's fingers, which Stannis chopped off. Davos keeps them for luck, and to remind himself that all that he is--smuggler and knight both--he owes to Stannis. Stannis charges him to return to his smuggler ways: he needs to bring Melisandre, the red priestess, into Shipbreaker Bay.

It's a boat built for two, and Davos is not at ease with his passenger; Melisandre displays both fervent faith in R'hllor and BlackAndWhiteMorality, neither of which Davos (an atheist and a strong believer in relative morality) is fond of. Davoes asks why they are going into a dark cave when she follows the Lord of Light. She answers that shadows come from light, not darkness, and that the brightest flames create the blackest shadows. She also seems confident in her sexuality, informing him that he wants to see what's beneath her robe. So she shows him. She is quite, quite pregnant, and she lays herself down on the beach to give birth to... some sort of... smoke-ghost-shadow-monster thing. Davos, horrified to find himself transplanted to ''Series/{{LOST}}'', looks on as the smoke-monster climbs free of Melisandre's womb and launches itself on its mission, which happens to be [[SmashToBlack right behind the camera]]. Credits roll.
