Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister in "Game of Thrones." / Helen Sloan, HBO

In this episode of HBO's Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister is on trial for the murder of King Joffrey.

Witness after witness tell stories against Tyrion. Cersei's testimony is particularly brutal. Lord Varys also condemns him.

Jaime, meanwhile, begs for his father Tywin to allow Tyrion to live and Jaime will continue the Lannister lineage. Tywin accepts the plan for Jaime to take a wife at Casterly Rock. Tyrion would be sent to the Night's Watch.

All seems well until Shae (Tyrion's ex-lover) gives a particularly disheartening testimony. She lies boldly about a plan between Sansa and Tyrion to kill Joffrey. Her utter betrayal leads Tyrion to lose hope and snap.

"I did not do it. I did not kill Joffrey but I wish that I had. Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores," he says.

"I wish I was the monster you think I am. I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you. I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it."

He tells his father he is not on trial for the death of Joffrey. He is on trial for being a dwarf. Seeing that he won't get justice in the courtroom, he requests a trial by combat. Woah!

Here are some other developments from the episode:

? Davos and Stannis sailed to Bravos in an effort to get money for soldiers from the Iron Bank. With the money attained, Davos uses it to pay for pirate Salladhor Saan.

? Danaerys assumed the duties of queen ruling over Meereen. There she is confronted with the son of a crucified master, who asks for the right to have his father properly buried. The son explains to Danaerys how her "justice" for the slaves caused her father pain. She accepts his request.

? When Yara Greyjoy and her crew attempt to rescue brother Theon, they find a completely different person. Theon refuses to leave with them, saying that he is Reek. After a fight breaks out with the sadistic Ramsay, Yara decides to leave. She says her brother is dead. For his good work, Ramsay gives Theon a warm bath and asks for a favor: Can Reek pretend to be Theon Greyjoy?
