The Lannisters prepare for Stannis’ impending attack of King’s Landing. Led by Davos, Stannis’ navy is met by just one ship from the opposing side. Leaking with wildfire, the lone ship is then shot with a flaming arrow, causing a massive explosion that envelops majority of the armada with green flame. But this does not deter them. As the remaining ships approach the dock, a siege by land ensues. Cersei takes insurance in the form of poison. She drowns herself in alcohol while waiting for the outcome of the battle. Joffrey marches with his troops, but chickens out when the main gate is just about to fall. He leaves a representative for the king to accompany his uncle before he retreats to his chambers. Left without a choice, Tyrion leads the battle and manages to boost army morale, but ends up being slashed in the face. As he loses consciousness, Tywin Lannister and Ser Loras Tyrell come to the rescue, forcing Stannis to back down and retreat for the time being. The Lannisters live another day.
