    Best line from the comments section of Alan Sepinwall's review:

    "And that's why you don't throw a kid out of a window precipitating a chain of events that leads to a continent-spanning civil war."

    Has that been established on the show? I don't recall that...

    I was more wtf? about the closing credits song than I was about Jaimie's hand getting chopped off. Talk about jarring.

    Yeah, she was probably glad he asked for the biggest one--all the better to BBQ you with.

    I don't think we can pin that one on him for sure. It's not likely he would have tried to pin it on Tyrion--the one person who cares about Tyrion is Jamie.

    As someone said, I think Lysa is in a position to chose her own husband. She's aware that suitors will be lining up to get her land, and she knows and likes Littlefinger since he grew up with her and Cat. Plus she'll probably make him wait until she's sure he's on the winning side in the war. ;)

    Cristina said that the boy who has Theon is Ramsay Bolton--do we know that for sure? I pictured him uglier.

    He clearly didn't grasp the severity of the situation he was in when he reached out and made that promise.

    I agree that Jamie wouldn't pin it on Tyrion, but have to say that his sister seems to care for him... :) So does his father for that matter.

    However, it remains to be seen whether she possesses the power of the glow. [​IMG]


    I was totally waiting for that. I fully expect her dragon to burn that guy to a crisp and then return to her and her new army.

    I did not see the final scene coming at all. And I really liked how jarring the song at the end felt.

    I had forgotten that Simon from Misfits had been cast for Game of Thrones, and for some reason I didn't recognize him last episode. So cool to see him! (Theon's rescuer).

    Littlefinger had a hand in the Stark assasination, too. He was the one who right off said he sold the dagger to Tyrion.

    Did Tyrion ever address that directly at his trial?

    The show has never confirmed who ordered the assassination of Bran. There are several suspects, including all three Lannister children, quite possibly Joffrey himself, and possibly Littlefinger since the dagger was his and he is a weasel. Other than that we have no way of knowing.

    He lost it to him betting on a joust. That's not really having a hand in an assassination.

    I watched the show a second time last night, and now I'm going back on this post. I don't think the Lysa/Littlefinger marriage has already been arranged. Tywin's mentioning it at the Council made it seem like Littlefinger is to go there and convince Lysa to marry him. LittleFinger then reassures Tywin that he and Lysa go a long way back and that she loves him.

    Also curious that Lysa didn't make it to her father's funeral.

    I guess I thought the lands between the 2 places were Robb's territory. But upon further reflection, it makes sense that no place is safe unless you're travelling with an army (as Robb is doing).

    And remember, her son can't leave the Aerie because he'll be murdered if he does; and she can't leave without him because he hasn't been weaned.

    She's made it very clear they're not going anywhere under any circumstances.

    (You do know she's insane, right? ;))
