Catelyn and Sideburns are in a roadside tavern while a musician tries to get tips. He actually just hops into their booth and starts begging for money in return for a song. Tyrion walks in the front door and is told by the innkeeper that there are no rooms. He's fine with his men staying in the stables, but would very much like a room of his own. He says all this while ostentatiously waving a coin around, and it's not long before someone volunteers to give up his room. The musician jumps up from Lady Stark's booth and starts up his pitch about how he'd like to sing a song about Tyrion's father, which isn't actually something Tyrion wants to hear. But his attention is drawn to the booth where the musician had been sitting, and he is obliged to make some pleasantries: "My lady Stark. What an unexpected pleasure. I was sorry to miss you at Winterfell." Everyone gasps, because she was here incognito. She stands and asks various thuggish types if they're still loyal to her father. They agree that they are. Tyrion is looking on quizzically and claims to envy her father all his "loyal friends." Once she's got a handful, she announces, "This man came into my house as a guest and there conspired to murder my son, a boy of ten. In the name of King Robert and the good lords you serve, I call upon you to seize him and help me return him to Winterfell and await the King's Justice." Everyone pulls out swords and points them at Tyrion. Drama!
