Synopsis

Tyrion is having breakfast with Grand Maester Pycelle, and hands him two sealed letters to send by raven for Prince Doran Martell’s eyes only. When Pycelle goes up to the rookery, Tyrion looks at Pycelle’s potions, and steals one. Tyrion knows the Grand Maester is ultra curious, and lures him by stating the importance of the letters, but will not reveal what they contain. As Tyrion takes his leave, he thinks to himself "one". Outside, Bronn is selecting recruits and sellswords, and points out a hedge knight named Tallad as the best of the lot. Bronn informs Tyrion of mobs gathering in the streets, and a black brother named Ser Alliser is demanding an audience, and he carries a dismembered hand in a jar. Tyrion tells him he will see Ser Alliser on the morrow.

Littlefinger visits later, and when Tyrion points out the dagger, Petyr offers it to him. Littlefinger knows his lie caused Tyrion anguish, and doesn’t care. Tyrion is aware Littlefinger’s rise started as a tax collector appointed by Jon Arryn, but he eventually rose to Master of Coin, and replaced most of his predecessor’s men with those of his own choosing. Tyrion knew that Littlefinger was too secure in his post, and realized he probably couldn’t touch the man, even if Littlefinger was a traitor. Tyrion then sets Lord Baelish up by offering him lordship of Harrenhal if he brings a message to Lady Lysa Arryn, whom Petyr has boasted of taking her maidenhead. Tyrion tells him he will offer her Lord Arryn’s true murderer (to which Littlefinger is quite curious to know who), and his niece Myrcella as a ward to be betrothed to Lord Robert. Littlefinger is too greedy to pass up such a great position as Lord of Harrenhal and agrees to deliver the message. Tyrion thinks "two".

Afterwards, Varys arrives and is aware of Tyrion’s proposal to Littlefinger. He then puzzles out most of Tyrion’s offer to Prince Doran Martell: a seat on the council, Tyrion’s nephew Tommen as ward, and the head of Ser Gregor Clegane who murdered his sister. When Varys asks what Lord Tywin would think, Tyrion replies, "My father would be the first to tell you that fifty thousand Dornishmen are worth one rabid dog." Varys cautions Tyrion that his sister will never consent to sending away both Tommen and Myrcella, and Tyrion warns that if his sister were to find out his plans, he would know Varys told her. He thinks to himself "three".
