Stannis cannot stand the meal at hand. The Queen tries to make light conversation, but The King is short with her. The Queen speaks her daguther, thinking that she is spiteful, and that the God frowns on her, otherwise he would not mark her face so. She suggests that Melissandre visits her.

Margery is walked down the aisle, brought before Joffery.  The cloak is laid upon Margery’s shoulders, and their hands bound. The pair are wed, and there is celebrating thoughout, but Sansa and Tyrion both do not sound happy. Tywin and Olenna talk of the high cost of the wedding. Wars are expensive, and the Tyrell money will likely be needed again, but for tonight they will celebrate young love.

Jamie has a little chat with Sir Loras, warning him against sleeping with Cersei. Brianne comes to give her congradulations to Margery and Joffery. Cersei gives her gratitude to Brianne. Brianne tells her that in truth Jamie saved her life. Cersei sees that Brianne loves Jamie, and she turns bitter, and nasty towards her. Cersei gives the Maester instructions to have the left overs feed the kennel, not the people, as Margery has ordered. Prince Oberyn introduces Cersei and Tywin to Ellaria. The pleasantries are practically hissed. Joffery calls for the floor to be cleared, so that the war of the five kings can be played out with midgets. Joffery pointedly looks at Tyrion, the jerk. Margery finds no humor in the show, and Sir Loras even less. Joffrey is the only one enjoying himself during this spectacle. With the show over, he dares any others to fight the victors. Tyrion does not rise to the occasion, but rather turns the tables back on Joffery with his sharp witt. Joffery, ever the child, pours his wine opon Tyrion’s head. Margery calls him back for a toast, but Joffery alludes that he cannot toast without wine, and asks Tyrion to be his cup bearer. Tyrion takes up the honor, and even as Joffery continues petty displays, Tyrion plays along. Margery looks for distraction, but it only lasts for but a moment. Joffery eats his pie, and calls Tyrion back as he tries to leave with Sansa. Tyrion comes back, but Joffery begins to choke. Sir Dontos comes, telling Sansa if she wants to live she must go now. Joffery dies in his mother’s arms, poisoned. Cersei accuses Tyrion of the crime, and demands that he be taken.
