[Renly parleys with Littlefinger in his command tent while Brienne stands guard]
Renly Baratheon: Now you do the Lannisters' bidding, is that it? Tell me, was my brother's body even cold before you secured your newest patron?
Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: I'm a practical man.
Renly Baratheon: Just not a loyal one.
Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: And who would you have me be loyal to? Your brother's corpse?
Renly Baratheon: I don't like you, Lord Baelish. I don't like your face. I don't like the words that come oozing out of your mouth. I don't want you in my tent one minute more than necessary. So tell me,...

Four Great Moments
22 April 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Robb Stark has another victory against the Lannister army. Arya Stark is imprisoned in a stable of an old castle with Gendry and Hot Pie, and they witness the torture and death of prisoners by sadistic torturers. Gendry is chosen to be tortured, but Lord Twyn Lannister arrives and interrupts the torture and assigns Arya for the kitchen. After acknowledging that Robb has defeated the Lannister army, Joffrey tortures Sansa with a crossbow and then he orders Meryn Trant to beat and strip her in front of the court. Tyrion arrives and stops the mistreating of Sansa. Littlefinger arrives at Renly's camp to avoid him to go to King's Landing but is not well succeeded. Then he delivers Ned's bones to Catelyn and proposes to exchange Arya and Sansa per Jaime. There is a meeting between Stannis and Renly but they do not have an agreement. Daenery and her group go to the City of Qarth and The Thirteen in principle do not welcome her. Davos brings Melisandre to the shore and the witch delivers a creature made of shadow.

"Garden of Bones" has four great moments. The first is the wise attitudes taken by Tyrion. The second one is the witty dialog between Arya and Lord Twyn at the table. The third is the impressive attitude of royalty of Daenerys towards The Thirteen. And last but not the least, the foggy shadow creature that the witch gets birth. My vote is eight.
