Tonight is dark and full of terrors, especially where a certain Imp is concerned.
On tonight's episode of "Game of Thrones," titled "The Laws of Gods and Men," it's finally time for Tyrion Lannister to stand trial for the murder of King Joffrey Baratheon — a crime that he most certainly did not commit, even though everyone in the Seven Kingdoms believes otherwise.
What can we expect from Tyrion's day in court? And what else will happen on "Game of Thrones" tonight? Here's what to expect:
The Trial of the Century Begins
The last time he stood trial for a crime he didn't commit, Tyrion nearly found himself on the wrong end of the Moon Door, thanks to his signature snark. In all likelihood, Tyrion didn't learn his lesson from that brush with death. Expect the former Master of Coin to give plenty of lip and bad attitude when standing before his father, Tywin, and fellow judges Mace Tyrell and Oberyn Martell. It might not be the best move for Tyrion, but it'll be a heck of a show for us.
Dragons are Officially Terrifying
Tywin and his court in King's Landing have more to worry about than Tyrion and the trial. In previews for tonight's episode, Tywin expresses his concern about Daenerys Targaryen's recent conquest of Meereen. The Khaleesi has an army, and she has dragons. Now that she's on Tywin's radar, can we expect an imminent confrontation between Daenerys' Essos forces and the wider world of Westeros?
Stannis Sails East
There's another developing danger lurking in Essos, one that the Lannisters are only just beginning to appreciate: The Iron Bank of Braavos. The Lannisters owe endless amounts of money to these dangerous financiers — and based on the preview, Stannis Baratheon, the self-declared one true king of Westeros, is taking a meeting with the Braavosi bankers. It's bad news for the Lannisters, and great news for viewers, as we'll finally get a good look at the home of Syrio Forel:
Greyjoy Crashes the Party
We haven't seen
Theon Reek since the second episode of the season. Looks like that changes tonight. Furthermore, looks like his sister, Yara, is hitting the mainland of Westeros in search of her brother — and her search could lead her to a lashed-up, bloodstained Ramsay Snow.
