Synopsis

Davos is held for eighteen days in a large, airy, handsomely furnished chamber with guards at the door and a view of the city's streets and the harbor in the New Castle at White Harbor. The Merry Midwife left after four days.

Ser Marlon Manderly takes Davos to treats with Lord Wyman Manderly and his Merman's Court. Davos asks Lord Wyman to ally with King Stannis.

He is resisted, however, by envoys of House Frey (Rhaegar Frey, Ser Jared Frey and Symond Frey), who have come with the remains of one of Lord Wyman Manderly's sons, Wendel Manderly. The Frey envoys have lied to Wyman, saying that Robb Stark transformed into a wolf at the Red Wedding, and killed Wendel and several Freys. Davos expresses skepticism of the Freys’ claim. Ser Jared challenges Davos to a fight after the accusation, but Wyman prevents violence. The Freys continue to besmirch Robb's name, and although Wyman and the other non-Freys appear to disagree with their words, they do not prevent them from speaking.

A young girl, Wylla Manderly, Lord Wyman’s granddaughter, vocally supports Stannis, and appears to sway the court. However, Lord Manderly calls for Davos’ head and has Davos dragged off to prison in the Wolf's Den as a traitor in the presence of the Freys.

Background

Lord Wyman Manderly's son (and Leona Woolfield's husband) Wylis Manderly is being held captive by the Lannisters. The Lord's other son, Wendel Manderly, was killed at the Red Wedding, but three Freys have returned his bones and attend Wyman's court.
