Jon is brought before the King Beyond the Wall; Tyrion asks for his reward; Littlefinger offers Sansa a way out; Cersei hosts a dinner for the royal family; Daenerys sails into Slaver’s Bay.
Some of the Night’s Watchmen, including Tarly and Mormont, survive the White Walkers’ attack and pledge to return to the Wall to warn the Seven Kingdoms. Snow is brought before Rayder, the “King beyond the Wall”, and pledges his loyalty to the Wildlings. A scarred Tyrion tries to get Casterly Rock from Tywin, who promises other things instead. Margaery engages in charity work with the orphans of King’s Landing. Baelish offers to help Sansa escape King’s Landing. Ros advises Shae not to trust him. Davos is rescued by Saan, who does not want any more connections with Stannis, and returns to Dragonstone, where he unsuccessfully tries to kill Melisandre, who blames him for convincing Stannis not to let her join the battle, and is imprisoned. In Essos, Daenerys arrives in the city of Astapor to buy an army of brutally-trained slave soldiers, the “Unsullied”. The warlocks of Qarth attempt to assassinate her, but she is saved by Selmy, the former Kingsguard commander, who pledges his loyalty.
