Stannis and Davos are visiting the Iron Bank for a loan. The rep for the Iron Bank, Tycho Nestoris wants to know what Lord Stannis wants. After Davos spurts out Stannis credentials Tycho tells them that the Iron Throne is currently seated by Tommen.
Stannis tells the member of the Iron Bank that he is not related to Tommen, that Tommen is a bastard born of incense. Tycho wants to know how many boats they have and how much food they have on Dragonstone to feed their men. Davos admits they have none. Tycho of the Iron Bank denies their request.
Davos Tycho and the members of the Iron Bank that Stannis is their best chance to get the money back that is owed to him by the Lannisters. He reminds them that Tywin is 67-years-old and won’t be around for long. If Tywin dies they are stuck with Cersei and Tommen and they have no hope of getting their money back.
Later Stannis walks into a bath house and see his pirate friend, Salladhor Saan who remarks he thought, “Davos was rotting in a cell.” Salladhor asks Davos to join him but Davos tells him they have no time because they sail on the morn. Davos throws him money and tells him, “you won’t be alone and you won’t be poor.”
Yara Greyjoy tells her men she is sailing to save Thron. She then tells her men that Ramsay Snow flayed their prince and her brother and they are going to get Theon back. Yara arrives with her Ironmen and grabs one of Ramsay’s men and asks to be taken to Theon.
Yara gets into the dungeons sees Theon and he is in bad shape. Yara tells him, “she is taking him home.” Theon/Reek goes insane, he is sure she is tricking him and does not want to go with her. He causes such a ruckus that Ramsay Snow hears them and comes into the dungeon with his men. He remarks, “it is turning into a lovely evening,” and they start fighting.
Yara and her men defeat Ramsay’s men and she tells Ramsay to give her Theon and no one else will live. Ramsay threatens to open the pens with ferocious dogs in them. Theon/Reek has run back into his cell. Yara leaves and tells her men to sail away when they ask about her brother she tells them, “her brother is dead.”
Meanwhile Ramsay Snow tells Theon/Reek he wants to reward him for not leaving with the Ironmen and Yara. He tells Theon/Reek that he has poured a bath for him. He makes him strip his clothes. Theon/Reek is terrified, he does not trust Ramsay and for good reason. Theon/Reek gets into the bath and Ramsay starts washing him. Ramsay asks Theon/Reek if he loves him and Theon/Reek replies, “yes of course.” Ramsay tells Theon/Reek that there is a castle where bad men are and he needs Theon/Reek’s help to take the castle back. Ramsay tells Reek he needs him to pretend to be someone he is not. Reek/Theon asks, “pretend to be who.” Ramsay replies, “Theon Greyjoy!”
Daenerys’ Dragons are getting large and one of them set fire to a field and took his goats. The man comes to see Daenerys and tells him that he is a goat farmer and because the dragons took his goats he has nothing. She agrees to pay him 3x the worth of the goats. The man leaves happy.

Prince Oberyn tells the council that the unsullied that Daenery has are good fighters.
At the end of the meeting Prince Oberyn comes to speak to Varys. Varys asks Prince Oberyn why he is so knowledgeable about the unsullied. Prince Oberyn lived 5 years where they were and Varys is surprised. Prince Oberyn asks Varys how he got to Kings Lansing. Prince Oberyn asks Vary is he likes men. Varys tells Prince Oberyn he does not desire men or women. The absence of desire lets him pursue other things. Prince Oberyn replies, “such as?” Vary just looks at the Iron Throne and leaves.
Jamie comes to see Tyrion and he says, “let me guess I have been pardoned.” The guards with Jamie unchain Tyrion and Jamie tells him it was, “Father’s orders.”
Tyrion is brought in to the Throne Room for his trial and King Tommen tells the court that he recuses himself from Tyrion’s trial and lets his grandfather Tywin preside over the trial.
Tywin asks Tyrion if he killed King Joffrey? Tyrion replies, “No” Tywin asks if Sansa killed him and he replies, “Not that I know of.” Tywin asks if he knows how Joffrey died? Tyrion replies, “He choked on his pigeon pie.”
Tyrion starts to call the witness that give testimony. Maester Pycelle tells the court that poisons from his stores were plundered and he shows the court a necklace that Sansa wore that held the poison. Cersei comes next and gives her testimony, at least her version of testimony.
Varys gives his testimony and when he finishes Tyrion asks if he can ask Varys one quetion. Tywin agrees, he can ask just one question. Tyrion says, “You once said without ME the city would have certainly been defeated by Stannis. You said the history books would not show it, but you would not forget?” Do you forget that Lord Varys? Varys replied, “Sadly I never forget anything.”
Tywin calls a break for one hour. Jamie comes to see Tywin and is not pleased that Tywin is railroading Tyrion. Jamie makes a bargain with his father, Tywin. If Tywin spares Tyrion then he will quit the Kingsguard and take his rightful place as his son. Jamie agrees to have children and support the Lannister name. Tywin agrees to spare Tyrion’s life and send him to the Black Watch.
Jamie tells Tywin the plan and tells him to keep quiet.
The next witness comes in and it is Shae. Shae tells the court that Tyrion is guilty and that he planned the death of Joffrey with his wife Sansa. Sansa wanted revenge. Prince Oberyn asks how Shae knows all this and she lets the court know she was Tyrion’s whore. She then claims that Tyrion kidnapped her and forced her to do things to him.
Tyrion is devastated, he says, “Shae, please don’t.” Shae replies, “I am a whore remember.” She then tells the court that Tyrion wanted to sleep with Sansa and Sansa wouldn’t let him so he agreed to kill Joffrey for her.
Then Tyrion says, “I wish to confess. I am guilty of a far more monstrous crime, I am guilty of being a dwarf. I have been on trial for this my entire life.”
Tyrion then says, “I did not kill your precious Joffrey but it gave me the most pleasure any whore has given me. I wish I was the monster you thought it was. I will not get any justice here so I will let the Gods decided my fate. I demand a trial by combat.”
