  • After Robb Stark put Catelyn Stark in jail, Rob and Josh discuss whether Robb did that to keep his mom safe from all of the guys who were pissed that she freed Jaime Lannister.

  • We see Sansa making up stories about what is going on in all the ships and the harbor before being spoken to by Littlefinger.  Rob and Josh discuss whether Littlefinger or Varys would win in a season of Survivor.
  • Rob and King Joffrey are both very impressed with Lady Margaery and her efforts to visit the orphanage.  Unfortunately, Cersei isn’t too keen on Joffrey’s new love interest but she doesn’t realize that her not liking a girl will probably only make Joffrey like her more.
  • Finally, Daenerys Targaryen ends up trying to purchase some slaves for her Army to take over Westeros and ends up negotiating with someone who doesn’t realize she speaks the language.  Then after surviving an assassination attempt, Daenerys ends up recruiting some more help for her cause from Barristan Selmy
