Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister in HBO's "Game of Thrones." / Screen grab from HBO's "Game of Thrones"
In this episode of HBO's Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister is readying for a trial by combat. His sister Cersei Lannister has decided that her champion will be Gregor Clegane, also known as The Mountain.
The future doesn't look good for Tyrion.
Jaime chides Tyrion for falling in love with Shae. Then Bronn, Tyrion's once bodyguard, refuses to protect him in the trial by basically saying that he likes him but loves his life more. Tyrion however eventually finds an unlikely ally in Prince Oberyn Martell. Martell says he will be Tyrion's champion.
When Oberyn comes to visit Tyrion, he says he wants justice and to avenge his sister's murder, starting with killing Gregor.
Meanwhile at the Vale, Petyr Baelish finally puts the moves on Sansa Stark. He kisses her and Lysa Baelish sees them. Lysa threatens to push Sansa over the Moon Door, which opens into the sky.
Thankfully, Petyr arrives and tells his new wife Lysa to let her go. He promises to send Sansa away. But once Lysa is in his arms, he tells her he only ever loved one woman - Lysa's sister, Catelyn Stark. Petyr then pushes Lysa out the Moon Door.
