Petyr Baelish visits King Renly but Catelyn is not pleased with his presence. He offers to help protect her daughters but a trade for Jaime is the only solution.

Quotes

Renly Baratheon: Can that truly be you?
Stannis Baratheon: Who else might it be?
Renly Baratheon: When I saw your standard, I couldn't be sure. Whose banner is that?
Stannis Baratheon: My own.
Renly Baratheon: I suppose if we use the same one, the battle will be terribly confusing. Why is your stag on fire?
Melisandre: The king has taken for his sigil the fiery heart of the Lord of Light.
Renly Baratheon: Ah, you must be this fire priestess we hear so much about. Mm, brother... now I understand why you found religion in your old age.

A Delightful Episode!
15 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourth episode of the second season of Game of Thrones. One again, we have ourselves another magnificent episode. There is nothing "big" that goes on around here, but each storyline is once again, clever and engaging. We get great acting again as Peter Dinklage continues on his roll of magnificent performances as Lord Tyrion. We also get to see some barbaric cruelty from King Joffrey, with a very similar feel to a pornographic video. But that is a powerful scene to witness.

In this episode, "Garden of Bones," Robb Stark defeats Lannister forces and he meets a nurse named Talia. Tyrion puts a stop to his nephew's cruelty against Sansa. Vaenarys is introduced to the desert city of Quarth. Arya is imprisoned in Harrahall where she eventually meets Lord Tywin. Catelyn wants to unite Renly and Stannis, but that proves harder than thought. Finally, Lord Baelish visits with Renly who makes a promise to keep her daughters safe, but in return for Ser Jaime.

Overall, this is a rather entertaining episode that has a lot going on. But I'm happy to report that each storyline is equally impressive. I loved the introduction to Quarth, the oasis city in the middle of nowhere. Just seeing the gates open brought chills down my spine. A very fun episode.

My Grade: A
