With the death of Joffrey, the Lannisters are convinced that Tyrion is the culprit. He sits in a dungeon because Sersei has the power to make a decision like that. We know this is the case and he is being used as a scapegoat because no one likes his sarcasm and disdain for their ways. He is such a sympathetic character, carrying the weight of prejudice from all avenues. His new bride is now in the hands of Littlefinger who may be the baddest of the bad in this series. His duplicity is so calculating. He is biding his time. There is now an issue as to who is in charge, since the marriage to Joffrey was never consummated. Sersei and her father begin to set the stage for the other brother. Jaime, who one moment is admirable and the next despicable, has sex with his sister next to the body of the young king. This is a hard one to watch. Meanwhile, Dany has reached the evil city she has been marching toward and there is a great Indiana Jones type scene. The Hound and Arya continue to travel together and he continues his survival of he fittest thing with some poor farmer and his daughter who do him a kindness.
