Tyro won the melee after a savage fight against thirty other competitors. His experience in the fighting pits of Meereen proved invaluable, and he fought without armor.
While at the tournament, King Damon Lannister confronted Lord Gylen Hightower about rumors concerning his worship of R'hllor, which the Reachman adamantly denied. Symeon Stark gave Lord Jojen Stark an ultimatum: that if Jojen did not stop pretending that Thaddius Lannister's bastard son was his own, Symeon would encite the northern lords to rebellion.
The King also confronted Jojen Stark about his relationship with Thaddius and warned him that if he ever travelled below the Neck or sought to make contact with Thaddius, Damon would retaliate against the Stark family with force. Ser Quentyn of Tarth smashed Jojen's hand with the pommel of his sword, breaking several of his fingers, in order to retrieve the ring that Thaddius had given Jojen.
On the first night of the joust, Queen Danae Targaryen lost her pregnancy. She and the King abandoned the tournament early to return to King's Landing.
