Fire Is Power
23 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Catelyn and Renly agree to join their armies but out of the blue, he is assassinated by the shadow creature in front of Catelyn and Brienne that are forced to flee from the camp. Renly's army joins Stannis's army and Tyrion foresees an attack to Cersei that is not worried. Tyrion forces Lancel to tell him what she is plotting and he tells that she had contacts with the alchemists. Tyrion learns that they have thousands of pots of the dangerous flammable Wildfire for the protection of the King's Landing. Arya stumbles with Jaqen that is now a guard and he promises three deaths for her because she saved his and two other prisoners' lives and she asks the torturer Tickle. Daenerys is welcomed in Qarth and Xaro proposes to marry her and help her to retrieve the Iron Throne.

"The Ghost of Harrenhal" shows the weird shadow creature and how dangerous the witch Melisandre is. The smart Arya is doing well working for Tywin Lannister and now she has the chance to eliminate three enemies. Daenerys may be in danger in the mysterious Qarth, but she has a good adviser protecting her. My vote is eight.
