In a dark, torch-lit room soldiers are singing some kind of... I'm going to call it a song. Bronn is leading them, so we're still in King's Landing. Once it's done, one of them asks Bronn where he learned the Lannister song. The families all have songs, too? Man. My family doesn't have a sigil or words or a song. We do have a spice, though. It's basil. I bet the Lannisters don't have a signature spice. Anyway, Bronn learned the song from "Drunk Lannisters" which gets a big laugh. There are a number of attractive young ladies in the room with them. I will not be unkind and just assume they're whores. The one on Bronn's lap thinks his broken nose is cute, so he tells her about the time his mother broke it with an iron poker when he was five. But it's okay, because she was trying to hit his brother. He undresses his young lady and gets distracted from his tales of nose-breaking. She says, "Poor nose" and gives it a little kiss. Bronn answers, "Don't feel sorry for him. He'll be halfway up your ass before the night's through." This scene is adequately fulfilling the promise of nudity. All the soldiers are really enjoying Bronn's banter. He seems like a lot of fun.
Just then! The Hound enters in the company of another goon. They wordlessly walk through the merriment and claim a table just by glaring at it. As the previous occupants scurry away, Bronn shouts, "Welcome, friends!" and offers to buy a round. The Hound just glares. Bronn shrugs. Their eyes meet across the room. The Hound asks if Bronn thinks he's a "hard man." Bronn says he is, although he's making a joke about the naked young lady on his lap. Bronn says it's warm and they have good brown ale and attractive young ladies, but the Hound just wants to put one of them in the ground. The Hound objects to Bronn enjoying himself fucking and drinking and singing. "Killing's the thing you love. You're just like me. Only smaller." The Hound stands up and looms ominously. Bronn suggests that he's also quicker. The Hound says that Tyrion will miss Bronn, except he calls him "Your Lord Imp" instead of Tyrion. Bronn shrugs and gets up, hiding a knife behind his back. This requires the attractive young lady to find a new place to sit, because she's been on Bronn's lap the whole time making sure that she's visibly topless the whole time. She was so naked that you'd think there was exposition going on.
But just then! Some bells ring, presumably meaning that the city is under attack! I realize that's two paragraphs in a row that I started with "Just then!" but that happens sometimes. Everyone but Bronn and the Hound runs off to fight. Bronn asks, "One more drink before the war? Shall we?" The Hound kind of quarter-smiles and turns away. I take a break to listen to "Drink Before the War" a song by Sinead O'Connor off The Lion and the Cobra, which was her album right before I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got made her a mega-celebrity. It's a really good song!
