Chapter 32

Catelyn III

  • Catelyn arrives at the meeting first, but Stannis soon joins her. Although Stannis admits to never being Eddard's friend, he swears Catelyn will have justice for his murder.
  • Stannis declares he needs the power of Renly's lords to take King's Landing and that he'll have no issue with Renly should he swear loyalty and obedience.
  • Renly arrives. During the parley, the two brothers bicker, each wanting the other to swear fealty; Catelyn tries to get them to see they have a common enemy.
  • Renly mocks Stannis with insults and a peach—not a euphemism, like an actual peach. Enraged, Stannis says Renly must strike his banners and come to him; otherwise he will destroy him.
  • Catelyn and Renly ride back. Catelyn points out that Stannis is the rightful heir to the throne, but Renly believes it is a fool's law—Stannis is not fit to lead, but Renly is because he's awesome like that.
  • Renly returns to camp to begin preparing for tomorrow's battle.
  • Catelyn heads to a nearby town to pray at the sept.
