It’s war! It’s the Battle of Blackwater! Everything and everyone else took a backseat to the bloodshed in the King’s Landing harbor. And so much the better, because we wouldn’t want to miss a moment of this.
As would-be King Stannis Baratheon’s (Stephen Dillane) vastly superior forces approached King’s Landing, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Bronn (Jerome Flynn) and the Hound (Rory McCann) prepared to defend the city while sniveling King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) postured for the press — but since there were no paparazzi, he preened for Sansa (Sophie Turner), who tried to egg him into taking a forward position in the coming battle. As the warning bells sounded, Sansa took refuge with Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) in the Red Keep while the men went to battle.
