!! Robb II
Robb is still worried over the fate of Rickon and how he's yet to tell their parents as they already have so much to worry about. Luwin shows off a message they have received which completely baffles Robb and Roslin. Robb heads to the dungeons to see Jaime. They trade insults before Robb shows Jaimie the note given to him from Ned courtesy of Tywin. Jaime is utterly stunned to read that his father (thinking "Jaime" escaped) is telling the Starks to just go ahead and kill their "prisoner" and not even bother to send back the body. His shock tells Robb he knew nothing of whatever game the Lannisters are playing as he tells Roslin and Luwin. Hearing noises, they find Bran, Hodor and the Reeds inside a secret tunnel. Jojen shares he had a vision that the tunnel would one day be needed and warns Robb that "The days of knights and soldiers is over...the age of Avengers is fast approaching."

After having time to calm down after Thor demonstrated his power, Theon and Lord Bracken decide to go home and report what they had learned to Ned Stark. They decide to say goodbye to Renly, but find his tent empty. Brienne meets them and agrees to lead them to Renly's ship, ''King Robert's Lament''. On board, they are shocked that it seems to be empty. They look around and eavesdrop on a conversation Renly is having with Asha and Vanko. Renly berates them for failing to kill Tony Stark, and for forcing him to waste money to fake Vanko's death so he could escape custody. Theon, Bracken, and Brienne are shocked when Renly reveals he has designs on making Ned Stark serve him by murdering Tony and Robb, and furiously rants that he is tired of not being taken seriously so he will seize power for himself by allying with the Ironborn. Theon recognizes Vanko as one of his father's former bannermen, supposedly killed in battle, but does not recognize his sister Asha.

!!!Varys I
Varys is reflecting on how different people react to different situations, as he and the rest of the royal party watch Myrcella be rowed off to be shipped to Dorne. He and Tyrion briefly discuss Cersei's inconsistent attitudes towards her children, before they all head back to the Red Keep. On the way, someone throws a cow pie at Joffrey, enraging him into ordering his guards kill everyone in the crowd, causing a riot. In the chaos, the royal party take refuge in one of Littlefinger's brothels, with Tyrion [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech making it clear to Joffrey]] that the whole thing is his fault and he'll be lucky if Tywin lets him stay on as king. Joffrey then notices that "Sansa" is missing, and Sandor goes to find her. Varys slips away through a secret tunnel to take stock of the riot, and comes across a warehouse where a group of men is threatening to rape "Sansa". As a hidden Varys watches, "Sansa" drops her helpless girl facade and brutally kills all the rapists. Sandor then arrives, and Varys is further surprised by the fact that the Hound isn't disturbed by "Sansa's" actions. As the pair walk off, he's left wondering what he's supposed to do now.


Ned and Catelyn discuss the reasons that Robert ended up such a disappointing king, concluding that being raised to one day rule Storm's End caused him to take having power for granted, unlike Ned who painfully admits that his brother Brandon would have likely made a bad Warden of the North for the same reason. Ned also shows her the various letters he's gotten about the various events across Westeros, having determined that the rulers of the North will be equal partners with their spouses. After going over Thor causing Renly's men to go over to Stannis and Roose Bolton and Gretin expecting a child, Ned moves on to letters from "Nikolos Fury" (not the one who's really Gerion), who is posing as a Master of Whispers hired by Anthony and keeping him informed about the inner workings of the Red Keep. They are confused at the Lannisters claiming Jaime has escaped but order the guard around him increased, and furious at learning they are actually parading around a grown woman they claim is Sansa, and finally Ned tearfully admits there is still no word at all about Arya.

Tyrion leaves the banquet at Winterfell to the keep's yard, to the sight of Jon Snow attacking a straw dummy, and he is joined with Tony, Rhodey and '''Benjen Stark'''. The four men discuss Jon's future, with Benjen indicating that, while he would welcome Jon to the Night's Watch, he could use some experience of life in the South, and Tony indicates a solution for Jon's quandary: he will take Jon to Iron Pointe with him.

Tyrion, Sam, Pod, Bronn and Clynt arrive in King's Landing. Tyrion is disturbed by the state of the city, as the leaderless Gold Cloaks are too afraid to do anything about the anti-Lannister mob activity. He meets one Goldcloak, Jeor Stacy, who tells him how a mob killed a friend of his, Rickard Parker and his son, Peter, barely escaped. Meeting Joffrey at the Red Keep, he is shocked to also be greeted by the Night's Queen, now presenting herself as a miraculously alive Sansa. Incensed by this, Tyrion confronts Cersei and the Small Council, calling them out for the stupidity of using an imposter when Ned Stark saw his daughter die personally, and is less than impressed by their insistence that she really is Sansa. He orders her confined to the keep, and for sellswords and hunters sent out to find Arya, while he makes it clear to Cersei that he is running things in the city now.

After a rather strained talk with Iron Pointe's cook, Pepper goes into Tony's workshop to find her husband studying Vanko's whips. Tony explains to her how, during his studies with the sunstones and their interaction with metals, he discovered what many of them did, but Vanko found that copper (which Tony never tried it on with) could create lightning, building his whips so they would conduct it without frying himself. When Pepper asks about the wisdom of letting Oberyn take Vanko with him as a prisoner, Tony mentions that Tywin has no trouble with it, seeing that it helps calm (slightly) the Martells' hatred for the Lannisters and it also gives Tywin political capital with the smallfolk that he has been losing since the war began. A servant interrupts them with news that a group of Ironborn reavers unsuccessfully tried to release Vanko, but in their escape burned down several buildings, one of which was the one Oberyn had kept Vanko - with the latter's corpse being later found in its burned ruins.

* After the meeting, Mystique stays alone with Arya and warns her against attracting too much of Tywin's attention, because if he likes her too much he may consider marrying her to some Lannister knight for his future plans for the North. She also reveals her past: she is a Targaryen, the daughter of Duncan the Small and Jenny of Oldstones, born the day of the Tragedy at Summerhall, whose magics turned her into her "demon" form and gave her the potential to change her physical aspect. It was not until years later that she met Magneto and joined his Brotherhood.

!!!Arya II
Stuck in Harrenhal until Mystique says otherwise, Arya spends her time working as Tywin's cupbearer and considering ways to kill the man and his generals, to no avail. Plans are discussed to find a way to drive a breach between some of the Northern and Riverlander lords and the rest, but Tywin knows that they are unlikely to happen at best, since they hold great loyalty for Eddard Stark and won't disturb the alliance. '''Ulysses Klaue''', a blacksmith from Essos that has replaced Antony's men, makes mention of some of the world's strangest metals and requests some of Iron Pointe's iron, so he can study it and potentially use that to make better armor for the Lannister army. Tywin asks Arya about Eddard Stark, and she mentions he is being called "The Punisher".

Dany admits she's feeling overwhelmed to discover the huge size of Doom's caravan. She also feels amazed by how well Doom can rule. She remembers them coming across a village that appeared burned out and feeling Doom was cold for refusing to help. But later, he revealed that the village was a huge trap. Doom warns Dany her warm heart will hurt her but Dany feels she can depend on Logan. Jorah also warns that Doom holds no allegiance but to himself and Dany should be wary. The two talk with Doom telling Dany of how Quarth acts likes it's a fine city but underneath is quite dark. He tells her the Thirteen will be a challenge but the true threat are the warlocks. After a talk on power, Doom says he is supporting Dany for a simple reason: Because she is the power that will shake Quart and finally make it the Greatest City That Is.
