Lord Baelish and Varys (identifiable by his bald head) in the throne room. This is a new scene, and we’re very curious about what’s being discussed here. Littlefinger describes himself as a “purveyor of beauty and discretion”... which seems to emphasize his ownership of brothels. This is in fact a detail in the novels, but he sounded more ... hands-off in the books, whereas it seems he’s much more active as a procurer and brothel owner in the TV show. The line that follows, that “all desires are valid, to a man with a full purse”, certainly suggests that he’s wiling to facilitate just about anything, provided the price was right.
