At '''King's Landing''', Sansa and Tyrion are taking a walk. Despite the awkwardness of Shae being right behind them, the newlyweds seem to be getting along wonderfully, with Sansa beginning to see Tyrion as more than just an evil Lannister. Podrick runs up; Tywin has called for Tyrion. He finds the entire Small Council waiting for him, along with an ecstatic Joffrey. News of the Red Wedding has reached them, and Joffrey is already making plans to serve Sansa her brother's head. Tyrion and Joffrey have another confrontation, despite Cersei's attempts to defuse it, and Joffrey proclaims that he'll do whatever he wants because ''He. Is. The King.'' Tywin interjects himself into the conversation at this point, reminding Joffrey that if he has to keep telling people that, than he's no true king. The victory-drunk Joffrey sneers that Tywin is just a coward who hid under Casterly Rock while his ''real'' father (Robert) kicked ass and took names[[note]]This means Joffrey STILL doesn't know he's Jaime's son, in spite of it being general knowledge by now. Is he ever going to learn the truth?[[/note]] Tywin's DeathGlare brings him back to Earth fast. Tywin coldly informs the King that he must be tired, ''sends Joffrey to bed and [[RefugeInAudacity orders Pycelle to give him a sedative]].'' Baffled by what just happened, Joffrey meekly protests that he is "not tired!" as Cersei takes him by the hand and leads him away.

Added DiffLines:

** Jaime's return to King's Landing is moved up ahead of schedule, mainly to complete his story arc with Brienne, whereas he would spend much of next season still travelling with her if he were to arrive [[spoiler: after Joffrey's death and Sansa's escape]] as in the books. This has the interesting side effect of putting him, Brienne, Joffrey, and Sansa Stark all in the city at the same time before Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell, a situation that for spoilered reasons doesn't occur in the original series.
** When Walder Frey calls himself Lord of Riverrun, he is perhaps referring to himself being the Lord Paramount of the Trident, which would make sense if the Freys supersede the Tullys for their help in the Red Wedding. It also excises the side plot of Littlefinger being made Lord Paramount, a role he really doesn't exercise as it's just a stepping stone for a plan he's following anyway, and since he is made Lord of Harrenhal anyway, it doesn't change anything.

* MassOhCrap: After Joffrey mouths off to Tywin. Everyone gets their own separate reaction shot. Even Joffrey realizes he's made a mistake.

Everyone gets their own separate reaction shot.shot (Pycelle looks mortified, Cersei looks torn between that and berating Joffrey for his stupidity, Varys has a smug little smirk plastered across his face, while Tyrion is [[PassThePopcorn gleefully watching]] to see which one of the family members he hates most will triumph over the other). Even Joffrey realizes he's made a mistake.

Added DiffLines:

** For all his arrogance about being a great conquerer himself, Joffrey has a fair point; it was Robert, Ned Stark and Jon Arryn who did most of the legwork in winning Robert's Rebellion. Tywin remained aloof at Casterly Rock, refusing (and forbidding his bannermen) to answer calls for aid from either the rebels or the loyalists; the armies of the Westerlands only entered the fray after the Battle of the Trident, when a rebel victory became a forgone conclusion, and their sole contribution to the war was to capture the capital through treachery and brutally slaughter the royal family.

-->'''Ramsay''': ''[contrite]'' [[spoiler: Sorry, I shouldn't make jokes. My mother taught me not to throw stones at cripples...''[abruptly drops the facade and grins like the cat that swallowed the canary]'' but my ''father'' taught me to aim for their heads!]]

Daenerys walks among the freed men and women. Jorah and the others become concerned as she is enveloped by the adoring crowd and they lose sight of her... The tide of people suddenly raises Daenerys up above them, transforming their fear to awe. As her joyous people keep trying to reach and touch her reverently, all the while chanting [[TitleDrop Mhysa]], over and over again. Dany, [[WhenSheSmiles glowing]] with happiness lays her palm on the upturned hands of all those around her in return. Drogon soars past his mother, who looks to the sky while the camera pans out, giving us the sky's eye view of Daenerys. In this moment, she is no longer a queen, not even a ''khaleesi.'' She has become a legend.

Well, until next season!

* ShutUpKirk: Tyrion calls Tywin out on his constant preaching about family by pointing out that it's easy for Tywin to say as much when he's making all the decisions, and asks him when he ''ever'' did something that was purely for family and not for his own benefit. Tywin responds "The day that you were born. I wanted to carry you into the sea and let the waves wash you away. Instead I let you live, and I've brought you up as my son... because you're a Lannister."

* StealthPun: Why is Joffrey so happy at the small council meeting? Tyrion thinks it's because he's killed a few puppies. Well, the Young Wolf (and his army) was just slaughtered.

** And then ''again'' when Joffrey claims that his grandfather Tywin "''hid under Casterly Rock''" during Robert's Rebellion... cue Tywin's Death Glare.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness:
** Stannis realizes just how serious the events described in Aemon's letter must be when Melisandre does a complete 180 from wanting to burn Davos alive for helping Gendry escape to stating that they need him to fight what's coming.
** Tywin also shows true vulnerability for the first time, as he struggles to maintain his composure during his ShutUpKirk.
** Although Davos could be surprised by Melisandre convincing Stannis to spare his life, many book readers prefer the interpretation that Davos is shocked by Stannis ''smiling.''
