* SheCleansUpNicely: Pink doesn't exactly suit Brienne, but she manages to pull off wearing her first dress of the series rather well. This is in contrast to the books, where the pink silk actually makes her look uglier.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Played with. Tywin claims to be disgusted by Loras' homosexuality, but whatever his personal feelings, it is clear he's only mentioning it to gain more leverage with Olenna. On the other hand, he calls Loras' tendencies an "affliction", which may be extremely homophobic by modern standards, but considering [[PityingPerversion homosexuality a mental illness rather than a moral sin]] was a ''massive'' step forward in the real world's attitude to it. He also shows himself to be perfectly willing to have Loras on the Kingsguard protecting Tywin's dynasty with his life, because he sincerely respects Loras' skill as a fighter (Tywin did allow Loras to command the vanguard at the Battle of Blackwater, after all).

* [[spoiler:DisposableSexWorker: Ros.]]
* DistaffCounterpart[=/=]SpearCounterpart: Sansa and Loras. Although neither of them are fully aware of the other's suffering in this episode, Sansa (an aspiring PrincessClassic) and Loras (an aspiring KnightInShiningArmour) have learned the hard way that life isn't a fairy tale. Both of them carried romantic ideals, believing that they would "live happily ever after" with their beloved Baratheon ("PrinceCharming" Joffrey for Sansa, "TheGoodKing" Renly for Loras). Both have been crushed emotionally when their dreams transformed into nightmares (Joffrey turned out to be a sadistic psychopath and executed Sansa's father, while Renly was murdered not long after Loras pushed him to become king).
