Chapter 22 Summary

Tyrion wakes up aboard the Shy Maid again; the others inform him that Lemore revived him. They worry that Tyrion might have greyscale and they advise him to prick his toes and fingers regularly with a knife. If it ever stops hurting, he should cut off that appendage. Tyrion returns to life aboard the ship, though the others remain careful around him. He challenges Young Griff, now revealed as Prince Aegon, to a game of cyvasse. Aegon plans to journey to Daenerys and marry her. Tyrion suggests that the prince's plans might not work out as he plans if he arrives as a beggar with a small army. Instead, Aegon should trust no one—certainly not Illyrio and his schemes. He should journey to Westeros and raise a bold banner of rebellion that will bring Daenerys to him. Also, Westeros has never been weaker than it is now with winter coming and with Cersei destroying every alliance her father made. After, Haldon and Tyrion go into Selhorys to get information. While there, they learn that more countries are preparing to attack Daenerys in Meereen to end her assault on the slave trade. On the way back to the ship, Tyrion stops at a whorehouse. He is drunk by the time he is to leave but is stopped by a knight, who recognizes Tyrion. The knight takes Tyrion and announces that they will journey to the queen together.
