Three days ago saw Garden of Bones. Robb still winning battles, like him for his treatment of prisoners. Better to treat your prisoners well, makes surrender more attractive. Joffrey, of course, acts monstrously. Good his Uncle is able to save Sansa. The beating prostitute scene was chilling though, further highlighting Joffrey's sadism. This King is quite like a certain Marquis. His Grandfather seems more intelligent, recognising Arya is a girl. Wonder if Qarth's name comes from Carthage. Interested in knowing motives of Xaro in helping Daenerys. Littlefinger tries his usual scheming. Now he tries to play the traitor for Renly. The Baratheon brothers against each other. Shows charisma can often win over right. Quite a scene where Melisandre gives birth to that shadow creature. Reminds me of the Necromancer in Dol Guldur. Another exciting episode.
