Relations have been strained between Jaime Lannister and his sister Cersei, Shae is jealous of the attention Sansa gets from Tyrion and Jon Snow came close to having his head removed for breaking his vows.
It was not a warm welcome for Jaime Lannister in "Game of Thrones" Season 4 episode 1. In many ways he changed after his capture and does not wish to be the heir of Casterly Rock, his father wanted him to leave the King's Guard and take over Casterly Rock. He seems to be on a quest to live a life of honour and fulfill the vows he took.
Tyrion Lannister has troubles of his own, he has to pacify his depressed wife Sansa Stark and also keep his mistress Shae happy. To add to his problems Prince Oberyn Martell has come to collect an old debt.
Prince Oberyn Martell's sister Elia was married to the crown prince Rhaegar Targaryen of the previous dynasty. In Robert Baratheon's rebellion it was the Lannisters who sacked the city of King's Landing.
During the sacking of King's Landing it was rumoured that Tywin Lannister's right hand man Sir Gregor Clegane raped and murdered Elia. Prince Oberyn blames the Lannisters for this and is out to get revenge in "Game of Thrones" Season 4.
Tyrion Lannister was sent to welcome the young prince but was in for a rude shock when he came to know that he was already in the city. Oberyn reminded Tyrion that the Lannisters were not the only ones who pay their debts.
Jon Snow is back at The Wall in "Game of Thrones" Season 4 and talks about the impending Wildling attack with an army of a hundred thousand. He also confesses to killing Qhorin and breaking his vows. He was about to be sentenced to death but Maester Aemon saved him.
Arya Stark is still riding with Sandor "The Hound" Clegane. She has got into the habit of getting into fights with Lannister soldiers and now seems to have developed the courage to kill people. Sandor is taking her to her aunt at The Vale of Arryn.
Preparations are being made for what the fans call The Purple Wedding, between King Joffrey and Margaery Tyrell. The event is expected to be the highlight of "Game of Thrones" Season 4.
