“The Ghost of Harrenhal” is the fifth episode of the second season of HBO’s medieval fantasy television series Game of Thrones. It was written by series co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and directed by David Petrarca, his second episode this season. It premiered on April 29, 2012.
“The Ghost of Harrenhal” is how Arya Stark describes herself while at Harrenhal in A Clash of Kings, the novel on which the season is based, although the phrase is not heard in the episode.
This episode marks the final appearance of Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon).
In the Stormlands
As Renly and Catelyn negotiate an alliance, Melisandre’s shadow creature kills Renly and disappears. Brienne, mistaken for the murderer, is forced to slay Renly’s guards and escape with Catelyn. Brienne swears allegiance to Catelyn, who promises not to interfere with Brienne’s vengeance against Stannis.
Loras also blames Stannis, but Littlefinger and Margaery convince him to flee. Stannis arrives, and his dead brother’s bannermen swear fealty to him. Following Davos’ advice, Melisandre’s blood magic is not used for the King’s Landing assault; Stannis gives a reluctant Davos command of the fleet.
In King’s Landing
Tyrion learns from Lancel that Cersei is stockpiling Aerys dangerously flammable “wildfire”, and visits the royal pyromancer, Wisdom Hallyne, who reveals a massive cache of wildfire Joffrey intends to catapult at Stannis’ forces. Bronn doubts the logistics and odds of Joffrey’s idea, so Tyrion claims the cache for his own plan.
Despite Theon’s lineage and title, his new, ship’s crew have little respected for him. First mate, Dagmer Cleftjaw, explains Theon must win their respect. When Dagmer proposes assaulting the Northern town of Torrhen’s Square, Theon realizes that will leave Winterfell poorly defended for his takeover.
Receiving news that Torrhen Square is under attack, Bran urges Ser Rodrik to raise defenders. He tells Osha of his dreams featuring a “three-eyed raven” but she deflects his inquiries.
At the Fist of the First Men
The Night’s Watch meet legendary ranger Qhorin Halfhand at the Fist of the First Men, an ancient fortification. Qhorin warns that the wildlings have become more organized and dangerous under former ranger Mance Rayder. Jon volunteers to join Qhorin in eliminating a wildling watchpost.
Daenerys holds court at Qarth as her dragons grow. At the party of Xaro Xhoan Daxos, the warlock Pyat Pree invites Daenerys to visit the “House of the Undying”, while the masked Quaithe warns Ser Jorah of dangers facing Daenerys. Xaro asks to marry Daenerys in exchange for resources to take King’s Landing. Jorah argues that Daenerys must win the Iron Throne on her own, and she eventually agrees.
Tywin deduces Arya is a Northerner, but remains unaware of her identity. Jaqen H’ghar, disguised as a Lannister guardsman, offers Arya “three lives”. She designates “The Tickler”, Harrenhal’s cruel interrogator, as her first victim. He is found dead, and Jaqen signals that Arya’s first debt has been paid.
