Added DiffLines:

* Somehow, the Others have managed to block the Children of the Forest from spying on them. Given the comments about a purple haze and Yondu's belief that a thrall is responsible, it's implied that Euron is the cause, which should give a warning about how powerful he is.


* We find out Cersei engineered the attack at the Blue Oyster as a way to put Jon and Natasha down right away. Though others might find her foolish, with this play it's clear that she's not quite out of the game yet.

* We find out Cersei ''somebody'' engineered the attack at the Blue Oyster as a way to put Jon and Natasha down right away. Though initially Cersei and Joffrey are the main suspects, the way it was arranged was too complex for both of them, and there are no others might find her foolish, with this play it's clear that she's not quite out obvious motives. A fitting reminder of the game yet.what a snake pit Jon's just entered.

Added DiffLines:

* When Brice tries to leave the gang, Adrian has him seized and beaten bloody. After the gang members suggest various things to do with him (including removing his eyes, tongue, and hands, or selling him as a SexSlave, or using him as a test subject for Phineas' experiments), Adrian ultimately just stabs him through the mouth into the brain. Giving us this story's first example of someone being KilledMidSentence, the narration just stopping as the blade hits home.


* Olenna Tyrell bluntly tells Jon that the Iron Throne is bent on wiping Ned Stark's rebellion, and since the North would never accept anyone other than a Stark leading them, the Lannisters have decided to fulfill Catelyn's greatest fear and make the Bastard of Winterfell the new Warden to the North. Jon almost vomits after hearing this.

Added DiffLines:

* When the Night's Queen was seducing Tywin, she deliberately gave Sansa more control of her body in order to taunt her, meaning Tywin unwittingly raped her.

Added DiffLines:

* Several of the images from Catelyn's nightmare:
** First, she sees a group of mirrors reflecting her as the various ways she's seen by herself and others. The last one, which is broken, shows her as a walking, graphically described corpse which can only be [[MythologyGag Lady Stoneheart]].
** As she's dragged towards the Moon Door, [[TheBlank her mouth disappears]], leaving her unable to defend herself or call for help.
** One of the people dragging her to the Moon Door is Sansa, who is presented as a corpse with a smashed in head and covered in maggots.


* Joffrey, warming up to Jon, casually decides that when he kills all the other Starks he'll bring Catelyn to King's Landing and let Jon do whatever he wants to her in the throneroom as a reward, with it implied that he is suggesting Jon rape then murder her.

* We get to see Adrian in action as the Vulture King as he attacks a group of Tyrell soldiers. His opening move involves swooping down and using his RazorWings to ''cut six of them in half at the torso''. The rest don't do much better, as he demonstrates just how dangerous the flight harness is.

Added DiffLines:

* There's something unsettling about how Natasha thinks in her first POV. While able to process information quickly, that also extends to thinking through the Game of Thrones in a matter of moments, so that the moment Joffery thinks about killing them, she immediately starts thinking through how to survive by killing all enemies in the room, and solidify Jon's claim to the Iron Throne.


* Tywin takes one look at Jon, and sees that he's a Targaryan. He doesn't quite hit the mark, but when Tony and the others talked about Jon entering a prison of Daggers, they weren't kidding.

* The Commander of the Others, this story's version of the ComicBook/RedSkull. Jeor notes that as inhuman as the rest of the Others are, the Commander makes them seem normal by comparison -- we're given graphic detail of his skull-like face, including the normal tongue and teeth that [[UncannyValley look even more disturbing when combined with the rest]].
** The Commander gleefully explains that the soul of his host body, Johann, is still trapped within him, and has [[AndIMustScream long been reduced to mindlessness]].

Added DiffLines:

* Without Sansa to be dominated by The Night's Queen, the body she's using is withering away. Before long, she won't be able to keep up the charade for long.

Added DiffLines:

** Even before Euron shows up, Asha being trapped in a storm with no visibility is terrifying in itself. It can actually feel like a relief when he shows up, since at least it's a concrete problem to solve rather than just staying stuck there until they're inevitably sunk.


* Euron Greyjoy has become a servant of the Others, specifically the story's version of Ronan the Accuser. Which among other things means he now commands a ship full of wights and can freeze people solid [[AndIMustScream but still alive and conscious]].
