Littlefinger and Varys have one of their discussions in front of the Iron Throne. Varys asks, when Littlefinger imagines being king, if the crown fits. And do people bow and simper? Apparently they do not, because Imaginary King Littlefinger has cut off everyone's heads. For his part, Varys denies wanting to be king. So Littlefinger returns to his favorite topic, which is needling Varys about being a eunuch. He asks if Varys has a gash where his testicles used to be. Then he goes on and on about the castration until Varys asks if he lies awake fearing his gash. He characterizes Littlefinger as a "grasper from a minor house with a major talent for befriending powerful men. And women." They'd probably spar like this all night, and be very entertaining while they did so, but Joffrey arrives to start the council meeting. He attends the meetings himself? He might be a step up from Robert. I imagine he's reinstated the bounty on Daenerys's head.
Yoren tells Arya that she's now "Arry the Orphan Boy." And she'll be joining a group of twenty men and boys bound for the Wall. They mostly came from the dungeons, which does not delight her. He recommends that she keep to herself, especially while pissing. Her new pals are a grubby, dangerous lot. Three of them are in a cage on the back of a wagon. And the rest of them take an instant disliking to Arya. They ask what a gutter rat like her is doing with a sword and push her down. The fat one (I'll call him "Fatty") says he kicked a boy to death. This is meant to intimidate her, but she's instantly back up on her feet, and Needle's point is in his face. She snarls at him that she already killed one fat boy. "I'm good at killing fat boys. I like killing fat boys." Fatty is terrified, which I think is the correct response.
