Standing a planned seven day vigil over [[Tywin Lannister|his father]]'s funeral bier, [[Jaime Lannister|Jaime]] finds himself with a lot of time for thinking. He feels that he is as much to blame for his father's death as [[Tyrion Lannister|Tyrion]] or [[Varys]]. He also finds himself wondering what happened to Varys. His thoughts then turn to the day that Prince [[Rhaegar Targaryen|Rhaegar]] rode for the [[Battle of the Trident|Trident]]. Jaime had begged not to be left behind to guard the king, but Rhaegar told him that [[Aerys II Targaryen|Aerys]] feared Lord Tywin more than he did [[Robert Baratheon|Robert]], and meant to keep Jaime at his side as insurance. Mounting up, Rhaegar's last words to Jaime were, "When this battle's done I mean to call a council. Changes will be made. I meant to do it long ago, but...well, it does no good to speak of roads not taken." Finally, he recalls his recent questioning of the chief undergaoler, which was a complete farce as Jaime knew far more than the man did, since he was the perpetrator.

Synopsis

Standing a planned seven day vigil over his father's funeral bier, Jaime finds himself with a lot of time for thinking. He feels that he is as much to blame for his father's death as Tyrion or Varys. He also finds himself wondering what happened to Varys. His thoughts then turn to the day that Prince Rhaegar rode for the Trident. Jaime had begged not to be left behind to guard the king, but Rhaegar told him that Aerys feared Lord Tywin more than he did Robert, and meant to keep Jaime at his side as insurance. Mounting up, Rhaegar's last words to Jaime were, "When this battle's done I mean to call a council. Changes will be made. I meant to do it long ago, but...well, it does no good to speak of roads not taken." Finally, he recalls his recent questioning of the chief undergaoler, which was a complete farce as Jaime knew far more than the man did, since he was the perpetrator.

When Jaime learns that the two gaolers who were put to sleep were killed by Boros Blount and Osmund Kettleblack, he reprimands them, warning them never to act on his sister's orders to kill anyone without consulting him first.

She implores Jaime to reconsider being Hand, but Jaime rejects her again. She departs with, "Very well. If it is battlefields you want, battlefields I shall give you." The next morning, the mourners arrive anew, but the smell is so nauseating that Tommen gets sick. Jaime takes him outside to console him, advising him to "go away inside", something Tommen understood from when Joffrey would torment him. Cersei then joins them, as does Mace Tyrell, and Jaime asks the Lord of Highgarden to have dinner with his sister.
