* WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency: Tywin Fucking Lannister. He refers to his act of not drowning his ''infant son'' as an example of how he makes personal sacrifices for the good of his family. Tyrion is so horrified by the declaration that he fails to make the slightest retort... a very rare moment for him, especially as ''he'' was the infant in question. The realization that his father despises him with every fiber of his being and the only reason he's still alive is because his father couldn't find a way to ''legally'' kill him is the turning point of his life to that point - [[spoiler:which ultimately leads Tyrion to kill Tywin after he declares Tyrion guilty of Joffrey's murder]].

* MaternalDeathBlameTheChild: As with Cersei, Tywin also blames Tryion for his mother's death, and this fact alone is enough to disown him as his heir.

We cut to - Davos, who somehow managed to survive that palaver in the Battle of Blackwater and finds himself on a rock in '''Blackwater Bay'''. he is picked up by a passing ship that just so happens to to captained by his old friend, Salladhor Saan. Saan commiserates with Davos over the loss of Matthos, his son, but Davos isn't going to take this quietly. He manages to convince Saan to take him to Dragonstone, although the pirate doesn't think that's a ''great'' idea. Melisandre appears to have moved from burning wooden statues to flesh and blood people - Stannis's enemies are being burned alive.

* GenreSavvy: Mance Rayder takes one look at Jon and decides "what (he) really want(s) is to be [[TheHero a hero]]", delivering probably the most accurate assessment of him we've yet heard. He doesn't believe Jon's IJustWantToBeFree explanation for a second, and remains unconvinced until Jon tells him something that truly surprises him (namely that Mormont was turning a blind eye to Craster's sacrifices).

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Tyrion tries CallingTheOldManOut, but he responds by telling Tyrion exactly what he thinks of him. Even Tyrion can't think of a retort in the face of his father's overt contempt.
