[S2E5] Kings Of Thieves
Clementine has an option in conversation to ask if she can accompany the thieves instead of remaining with Kenny. No one will ever find out about it if she asks, since Arvo still puts a bullet in her shoulder before they can get away.
[S2E5] Kings of Thieves
King Joffrey triggers a citywide riot when protesters throw excrement at him, by demanding that his guards kill them all. Bronn's men are hard-pressed to restore order, and several Gold Cloaks and the High Septon are killed. Bronn achieves a marked reduction in crime by culling the city's known thieves but clashes with Tyrion over the brutality of his methods. Tyrion enlists Bronn to help plan the defense of King's Landing against an impending attack by King Stannis Baratheon. Bronn is dismissive of Tyrion's reliance on books and warns that food is the most important commodity in a siege. He is speaking from personal experience, which is why he rounded up all the known thieves, to prevent them from stealing all the food.
The mech that the characters find themselves trapped inside is similar in structure to the Tomb Guardians from the popular canon video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. In Fallen Order, ancient robotic creatures are created by the Zeffro to defend their sacred crypts and tombs from thieves and marauders.
