Loras Tyrell is next and he has one wish: That the Weasel King marry his still-virginal sister Margaery. Damn you, Smokey the assassin, you killed Renly Baratheon -- this is all your fault. Joffrey reminds the crowd that he's engaged to Sansa. His mother A.K.A. his small council tells him he should set Sansa aside because she's a Stark and the Starks are bad. The crowd boos because every vow is sacred. Joffrey does a great pantomime of protesting his mother's statement. He can't toss aside Sansa! He made a vow before the gods after all. Then Maester Pycelle storms the room and claims that he talked to the gods about it or consulted with them and since Sansa's family has since made it clear they are treasonous, the gods don't mind if he backs out of this one deal. So Joffrey declares Sansa set aside and agrees to marry Margaery who is going to learn to regret her decision just about the time Joffrey is making his valet beat her with a scepter while he watches and claps. Poor Margaery... one husband was gay, the next is a sadistic monster with a yellow streak and a weasel face. Dr. Phil would have a field day with her!
Sansa looks horrified, but as she turns to walk away, she breaks into a smile and starts humming George Michael's "Freedom." Baelish interrupts her swag and tells her that Joffrey will never ever let her go. He wants to keep her around to beat her, maybe knock her up and probably kill her. The only one who can save her is him. You know, because he loves her mother. Sansa looks appropriately skeptical.
Over in the King's Landing whorehouse, the redheaded madame is greeting a new customer. She's putting on a good show (and brings our boob count up to two for this episode) but the hooded client is Varys. He wants to know if Baelish is a good boss, but she doesn't answer, instead reaching for his package. Varys laughs as she recoils in horror at its absence. Varys tells her that he knows that Baelish pimped her out to be beaten by the King. He would never do that. He wants a partner. He thinks they can help each other.
