    Why do people keep confusing Robb and me?

    He's much better looking than I am, and I would never piss off my ally by spurning his daughter for a nurse.

    The kid who rescued Theon, who the last guy shot called, "you bastard" is the Bolton Bastard?

    It was B.S. There haven't been Sapphires in Tarth for a while.

    To be clear: Littlefinger said he lost the jeweled dagger to Tyrion in a tournament bet? Did Tyrion verify that? How did he explain how the assassin had it?

    Any archers here? How plausible is it that archer dude #2 hit the funeral boat on his first try when it was waaaaaaay down river? Is he Green Arrow's great, great, great, great grandfather? Also, was it alarm or somewhat hidden snickering that I saw in the peanut gallery when archer guy #1 kept missing?

    As I recall he didn't deny it was his dagger, but I can't recall his specifically admitting it.

    My recollection was that Cat stated that Littlefinger had lost the dagger to him and accused Tyrion of orchestrating the attempted murder of her son with said dagger. Tyrion replied something like "what kind of idiot would give his own known blade to an assassin?"

    Closed captions is a must for me with this show as it was for Spartacus and now with Da Vinci's Demons. So many of the personal and place names are too "foreign" for me to immediately recognize without visual help.

    Are you forgetting the guys who tried to rape Brienne?

    I don't think Robb's plan is to trade Jaime for his sisters. That was Catelyn's plan and it's why Robb locked her up for disobeying him.

    I'm saying, the same guys found Theon and Brienne attractive for some reason.

    Yep me too. Even with them, I'm still lost half the time :)

    Speaking of Lost...people used to complain the plots were so convoluted. This make Lost look like everything was straight forward!! :)

    I intentionally watch it on HBOGO, because the little memory prompts, photos of prior scenes, and maps at the bottom of the screen are invaluable. I'd be lost without them. The other bits, like mini interviews, I generally disregard.

    He said "you little bastard".

    I think it means nothing. First, I think "bastard" is like "a-hole" here; it's the first insult that would come to mind for them. Second, that world is probably 75% real bastards anyway! so the chances that it's the one bastard we're looking for are remote.

    OTOH, if that specific bastard wanted to get Theon back after he screwed the pooch at Winterfell, what better way to do it?

    btw, I noticed that the guy who got to keep harrenhall is the father of the bastard that was sent to free Winterfell. If this guy has a long game, he is certainly getting his pieces in order to make a move!

    If I could get HBOGO on my 46" flatscreen I might do that :) Unfortunately, watching on my iPad just isn't a fulfilling experience when that big TV is staring me in the face :) Also unfortunately, is that my Roku, which has HBOGO, doesn't have it for DirecTV describers.

    I agree. In particular Robb had a line like "The Lannisters have my sisters. Have I sued for peace? No."

    I think as much as he'd like his sisters back, Jaime has greater strategic value to Robb and he's waiting for the best time to play that card. He's the father of the king and the lover of the kings' mother. He's the favorite son of Tywin Lannister. Lots of people would like him back.

    He's also a very dangerous person to be loose in the wild, one of the 'best swordsmen in Westeros'. Well, or at least he was...

    I doubt attractiveness had anything to do with it. They were going to rape Theon and Brienne as punishment.

    .... You know that the group of men who were going to rape Theon is different from the group of men who were going to rape Brienne, right?

    Android stick?

    I have all the other devices. Roku being directly hooked to my TV is the best option normally, but, no DirecTV support :(

    My Android Tablet or iPad could be hooked to the TV I suppose if I wanted to watch bad enough. I have the adapters. Still easier to watch the other methods. Besides, I come here and let you guys clear up the confusion...although....sometimes you guys confuse me more!!
