Plot In A Paragraph: Joffrey punishes Sansa for Robb's victories, while Tyrion and Bronn try to temper the king's cruelty. Catelyn asks Stannis and Renly to unite against the Lannisters. Danaerys and her exhausted people arrive at the gates of Qarth, Arya and Gendry are taken to Harrenhal, where they are at the mercy of "The Mountain," Gregor Clegane. Davos goes on a mission with Melisandre.

The episode starts with Joffery having Sansa beating as punishment for Robb's victories. There is a great scene when a disgusted Tyrion arrives and sees what happening. The acting is superb all round Jack Gleason has an excellent episode as the cruel king (God I hate Joffery) Sophie Turner is brilliant as poor Sansa, Again my love for Peter Dinklage continues, he is just outstanding. Rory McCann as The Hound doesn't do much, but his silent anger and disgust at Joffery is evident. But a stand out performer and quickly becoming a favourite of mine is Jerome Flynn as Bronn, he delivery of one of his lines had me laughing out loud.

As I've already said along with Dinklage as Tyrion, I'm also a fan of Maisie Williams as Arya. There is a lot of Arya in this episode, which I like. After being missing from the last episode Danaerys is back and she has looked a lot better.

Davos is given an assignment that sits poorly with the honourable seadog and the episode ends with a very creepy scene.
