Sansa is fleeing the scene and is brought to a mysterious ship waiting to take her away from Westeros, Pirates of the Carribean style. She thinks she’s safe, until it turns out that her savior is in fact Littlefinger (a twist book fans have seen coming for years). Petyr Baelish obviously has his motivations (mostly his love for Catelyn Stark, now creepily transferred to her daughter), but this also means something bigger for the plot. In order to get the ship ready, Littlefinger must have known about Sansa’s flight (and therefore Joffrey’s planned murder) for some time. Of course, Petyr, being a Catelyn Stark fanboy, definitely has motive to kill Joffrey. But then so does practically everyone else in King’s Landing, so we’ll let that one go for the moment.

Meanwhile, it looks like everyone is gearing up for war.

Is she though?

Over at Dragonstone (aka the most depressing place in this or any other fictional universe,) Stannis is livid, because he wasn’t in on the whole “king is dead, time for a new king” thing. Which is understandable, only it’s poor Ser Davos who bares the brunt of his anger. Things are swiftly moving from personal to political and Stannis, who has motivations on both fronts, seems to be moving back into the game.

Margaery and Lady Olenna are discussing the new sort-of-queen’s situation, but it doesn’t seem like there’s much to be concerned with on that front. Maybe Margaery will marry Tommen, maybe not. Either way, it’s Tywin, who’s going to deal with things now, and “things” in this case includes Oberyn Martell’s obvious and not-in-the-slightest-secret plan to… wreak havoc on any and all Lannisters he comes across. So Tywin  goes to find the Dornish prince and his main squeeze Ilaria at a brothel, enjoying everything that King’s Landing has to offer – and we do mean everything – and he makes Oberyn an offer of a different kind. Will Oberyn sell his quest for vengeance in exchange for peace, money and a seat on the small council? He doesn’t look like the type, but the Dornish prince looked like he was considering it.

And that’s where the developments in King’s Landing pretty much end, so that we can see what’s going on up north. Quite a lot, as it turns out. As Sam and Gilly continue their strange arrangement – she and Baby Sam live peacefully with the Night’s Watch, in exchange for cooking, housework and other womanly chores, both Sam and Craster’s daughter continue to ignore the fact that they’re totally in love with each other. So keen is Sam on ignoring it, that he sends away the possible love of his life, so that she can be “safe”. Riiiiight…
