We pick up right where we left off with Cersei screaming at the guards to seize Tyrion. Sansa runs off with the fool. Cersei asksTywin where she is. Tywin says to bar the gates and that no one leaves the capital. But the fool already has a rowboat waiting and he rows her out to a ship shrouded in the mist. She climbs aboard and is greeted by Littlefinger, who promptly kills the Fool, takes the necklace from Sansa's neck and drops it on his dead body in the rowboat. He notes that money buys silence for a time but a bolt to the heart buys it forever. He tells her she is safe now.
Margaery is worried that she's not really queen now. Olenna says since they didn't consummate it makes it complicated. Margaery recalls the horror of Joffrey's death. Olenna recalls looking at her dead husband's body. Margaery your circumstances have improved markedly... might not have enjoyed watching him die but it was better than it would've been living with him... she says he didwonderful work on Joffrey and the next one will be easier.
Cersei and her second, younger son, survey Joffrey's body lying in state. Now, this boy, will be king. Tywin asks the boy what is his most important quality. He tries holiness, justice, and strength and Tywin shoots them all down for various, good reasons. When he gets to wisdom, Tywin says he's hit upon the key. He clearly likes the boy. Even Cersei seems impressed by him. Tywin points out it is the wise king who knows what he knows and what he doesn't and he heeds his councilours until he comes of age. He says Joffrey was not a wise or good king or else he's still be alive. Tywin asks him about needingto bemarried and furthering the line. They walk out talking. Jaime enters and asks the guards and priests to give Cersei time alone with her son. Jaime approaches her, and him. She says it was Tyrion, he told her he would. Jaime says there will be a trial. She doesn't want a trial she wants Jaime to avenge their son and kill Tyrion before he can squirm to freedom. She breaks down into tears. He kisses and holds her. And then it takes a turn to sexual. And at first she seems to resist and pulls away. Then he calls her hateful and grabs her and forces himself on her and she's definitely resisting and then she seems into it and it seems very rapey.
Arya and the Hound are still making their way to the Eerie. Arya's worried they're going the wrong way. He says he's in a hurry to be on his way. She wonders where. He says across the Narrow Sea to work as a sellsword. A man and his young daughter notice them and say it's their land. Arya says to forgive her "father" and tells a sob story of her mother dying and her father was never the same. They say he fought for the Tullys of RiverRun. This is the right answer. The man offers his barn as a shelter and says his young daughter makes great rabbit stew. They eat. The man tries to convince the Hound to stay on until the new moon and work for cash and guard them from thieves. He offers them fair wages for fair work. He accepts but then instead the Hound robs him and they take off. Arya is mad. The Hound says since the man is weak and they'll both be dead come winter. He asks Arya how many Starks they gotta behead before you figure it out.

The only thing they think about. 100 men lying awake at night picturingyou, she asks what about you He says eh worries about her. She thanks him. He says he doesn't know if she's safe since some of them were thievesand rapers before they came here. He says maybe she'd be safer in town. She worries that he's bored of her. He is not, he wants to protect her. It makes her sad that he wants to send her away.
