* In the immediate aftermath of their defeat of the Lannister fleet, Wilas Tyrell informs his brother that house Tyrell will be officially bankrupt in a matter of days, putting a bit of a damper on any potential celebrations.

* The rather absurd situation that Eddard Stark represents the most unifying figure in Westeros despite his isolationist policy and two decades of Targ propaganda. To whit: he's the foster son of Jon Arryn (the Vale), married to Catelyn Tully (the River Sector), is respected by the Stormlords, one of the few people Dorne doesn't hate, and has enough influence to for the Westerlands and Reach to kneel. And he's made it clear that he has no interest in taking that path.

* Rhaegar learned that the Starks kept some top secret shipyard hidden somewhere, named ''Base Shadowwolf'', and sent multiple spies to find the place, with no success. Visenya learns after arriving to the North that the rumours were started by the Northerners themselves as a joke to distract the spies from the actual source of new ships - the normal shipyards that got expanded while the spies were distracted with a non-existent secret base.

* Apparently, Baela's ice dragon, Icefyre, has been informally adopted by the direwolf pack. Unfortunately, it's more an Omega than an Alpha with Baela admitting that even once he's grown bigger than the full-grown direwolves, he'll still probably run away. Keep in mind that dragons typically grow bigger than a Star Destroyer (at least in length) in this universe.
