The Season 4 excitement continues in Episode 4 with Tyrion’s trial taking some steps forward, the real killer of Joffrey being revealed and action taking place north of the wall regarding the mutineers of Craster’s Keep who killed Jeor Mormont. We had some good lines to go along with that, so here are the best Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 4 quotes.
1. “I will answer in justice with justice” – Daenerys Targaryen
Ser Barristan petitions Dany to have mercy on the masters that they have captured following the slave revolt in Mereen, advising her to act in justice with mercy. Clearly angered by how the masters littered the path to Mereen with 163 slaves as a warning to the others, she has none of this, and instead orders much more than 163 of the masters be nailed up on the walkway, as they did to others.
2. “A man with no motive is a man no one suspects. Always keep your foes confused, if they don’t know who you are, what you want – they can’t know what you plan to do next” – Lord Baelish
Sansa quickly comes to realise that it was Littlefinger who was responsible for Joffrey’s death, and asks him why he’d do this when the Lannisters have given him power, wealth, even Harrenhal. Baelish’s answer is a smoky one, and only really reveals his absolute love for the Game of Thrones and its power plays.
3. “I’d risk everything to get what I want” – Lord Baelish
Another awesome quote from Lord Baelish as he tells Sansa about his decision to kill Joffrey. When brought up on the dangers it could have caused him, he tells Sansa he’d risk it all to get what he wants. A great Season 4 quote.
And on the topic of what Lord Baelish wants, he tells Sansa after a brief pause in a simple word. Everything. Baelish’s desire for power knows no bounds.
5. “What are you waiting for, a kiss?” – Bronn
Bronn bestows Tyrion’s axe from the blackwater to Podrick at the behest of Tyrion, and Pod accepts it with a mute joy. He holds the axe as though waiting for something else, so Bronn says this to get the boy out of his stupor.
Fewer quotes than most of the episodes we post, but some truly great ones from the ever-ambitious Lord Baelish. Be sure to look at the extensive quote collection from Season 3 of GoT, as well as the episodes that came before this one.
