Davos speaks the truth to king Stannis and is rewarded with his freedom and a promotion. Melisandre uses the blood (not all of it, thankfully) of Edric Storm to curse the false kings: Joffrey Baratheon, Balong Greyjoy, and Robb Stark. Mackelly and Simon hope that Robb’s string of bad luck is behind him.
Davos Seaworth is brought from the dungeons of Dragonstone by Axel Florent, the brother of his cellmate Alester. Florent shares that he has seen Stannis on the throne in the flames. But a precondition was that he, Axel, become Stannis’ Hand of the King. If Davos supports Florent good things will follow, but woe betide Seaworth should he fail to.
Stannis asks Davos what he thinks of Floernt’s plan to invade Claw Isle as punishment for Lord Celtigar’s decision to bend the knee to Joffrey. Davos, Stannis’ spirit animal, cannot help himself and dismisses the plan as pointless and unfair. The men of Claw Isle fought and died for Stannis on the Blackwater, while victory would be assured, those people deserve better of their king. Stannis agrees, dismisses Florent and makes Davos his Hand of the King.
Enter Melisandre with a plate of swollen leeches. The blood comes from Edric Storm, Robert’s bastard son, who is already much beloved within Dragonstone. The three leeches go in the flames each with a curse for Joffrey Baratheon, Balon Greyjoy, and Robb Stark.
