At '''King's Landing''', reports are even more garbled: Tyrion reports to Cersei that Catelyn Stark has joined the list of suspects. Regardless, Stannis is now left the main threat to the Lannisters, as he outnumbers them in ships and men both. Cersei seems rather casual about preparations, claiming that she has things well in hand; and, to her credit, Lancel confirms that she ''is'' making preparations: she has commissioned thousands of pots of wildfire, which will be launched from the city walls at Stannis's ships and armies.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Bronn says this of wildfire, and provides a very good argument as to why it's a bad idea. Tyrion does listen to his arguments, but ultimately decides against them when he realises just how much firepower is stored in the pyromancers' cellars.

* {{Pyromaniac}}: The Wisdom Hallyne seems a little too enthusiastic about explaining how powerful his wildfire is.

Given that Creator/MaisieWilliams is too young to legally satisfy [[PortmanteauCoupleName Gendrya shippers]], her reaction is merely some subtle downward eye-flicks.

* DueToTheDead: Loras stands vigil over Renly's body, and remains near his beloved even as Tyrell bannermen are panicking to flee the area before Stannis' fleet arrives. It's revealed in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m1-xPObOLk deleted scene]] that Loras also buried Renly on his own, which is a detail taken from the novels. [[labelnote:From the books...]]He tells Jaime in ''A Storm of Swords'': "I buried him with mine own hands, in a place he showed me once when I was a squire at Storm's End. No one shall ever find him there to disturb his rest."[[/labelnote]]

Loras must have commanded the Silent Sisters to clothe the body in this manner so that he can later lay Renly to rest as his beloved "wife."
