Oberyn Martell: I'm sorry about your grandson.
Tywin Lannister: Are you?
Oberyn Martell: I don't believe that a child is responsible for the sins of his father... or his grandfather. An awful way to die.
Tywin Lannister: Which way is that?
Oberyn Martell: Are you interrogating me, Lord Tywin?
Tywin Lannister: Some believe the king choked.
Oberyn Martell: Some believe the sky is blue because we live inside the eye of a blue-eyed giant. The king was poisoned.

The King Is Dead, Long Live the King
12 May 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Tywin instructs Tommen how a good king shall rule his realm. Then he makes an agreement with Oberyn Martell to help the Lannister House. Sansa escapes with Dontos to a ship where Littlefinger welcomes her and tells that she is safe now. Tyrion releases his squire Pod from his duties to save his life. Arya and The Hound are received by a farmer and his daughter that offer food and shelter to them; on the next morning, The Hound steals his silver and follows his journey with Arya. Two rangers escape from Craster's Keep and arrive at Castle Black. Jon advises that Rast and Karl must be killed since they know the defenses of Castle Black and they will disclose them to Mance if they are captured. Daario easily kills the champion of Meereen and Daenerys promises to release all the slaves in the city.

In "Breaker of Chains", the Machiavellian Tywin immediately initiates the preparation of Tommen for his future position of king. The King is dead, but long live the King. The danger that is the presence of the traitors at Craster's Keep will force the Night's Watch to return the North to eliminate them. Daenerys will certainly conquer Meereen and increase her army. My vote is eight.
