Jaqen H'ghar tasks Arya Stark with assassinating Lady Crane for a client. To prepare, Arya watches the play, where Crane is playing Cersei. When she goes backstage, she discovers Crane playfully flirting with Bobono, the dwarf actor portraying Tyrion Lannister. When she overhears that Crane is the only member of the troup to drink rum, Arya plans on poisoning it. Jaqen refuses to tell Arya who has payed for Crane's death, but she suspects Bianca, a younger and less talented actress portraying Sansa Stark. Despite her misgivings over Crane being a decent person, and pregnant, she promises to go through with the assassination.

After their third performance of the play, Lady Crane runs into Arya backstage. The two converse about the theater life, Crane explaining how she ran away from home to join the theater and escape her poor home life. She asks Arya's opinion of the play and later tries to express her own opinions among the group, but is shot down by her peers. As she goes to drink some of the poisoned rum, Arya rushes in and stops her, telling her to watch out for Bianca.
