    OK I thought that Yoren was closer to Ned Stark that he seems to be (hence the ability to recognize Arya even as scruffy as she was at the execution). I also (incorrectly) thought that the chief Night's Watch recruiter would be a Stark bannerman because the Night's watch and Starks are rather closely aligned.

    I still wont be at all surprized if Tywin already knows that Aria is who she is.

    How would he? He doesn't know she's missing; he's (probably) never met her. Putting 2 and 2 together is one thing, but there's no 2 and no 2 to put together...

    I think the Night's Watch is supposed to be independent of all the intrigue going on in the rest of the country. They can't protect the realm if they are fighting each other every time a lord rebels. I think he had met Arya when he met with Ned earlier. I don't think we were ever told whose bannerman he was in his former life--pre Willem. ;)

    100% pure speculation!

    and no way I would catch everything without CC on. I watch it the first time with it and then the second time (around Friday night) without it.

    That's when he met Arya; when he went to the Hand of the King (Ned), asking for access to the guys locked up in jail for the Night Watch. She came into Ned's office while they were talking.

    Ned is also dear to Yoren on account of his brother. So the respect and friendship was only natural.

    Just so people are not mistaken, the smoke queef was a strategic maneuver by Stannis, they knew it was coming and they positioned Melisandre upwind of Renley's camp. As anyone who read the books can attest to, the pungent waft spreads through the camp and by morning many of Renley's soldiers are either sickened or fled during the night from the awful fumes. Just wanted to clarify...

    If you're really not sure, google "smoke queef." ;)

    He didn't "recognize" Arya. She was standing on the statue of Baelor when Ned was brought out for execution. Ned saw her. As Ned was being walked up to the stage, Ned passed by Yoren. Ned stopped, leaned over to Yoren and yelled "Baelor". Yoren looked to the statue and saw Arya.

    Are we sure about that? Tywin must have sources in King's Landing that would inform him that Arya is missing, WRMS (Westeros Raven Mail Service) seems to be pretty efficient. He then comes across a well-educated northern girl disguised as a boy trying to get north. Given the patriarchal society in Westeros likely that such a girl would be a member of a noble family. I suppose that she could be a daughter of Lord Frey (he is the Lord of "the Twins", right?) as he seems to have an abundance kids and might not have noticed one was missing, but I'm still going with the idea that Tywin at least suspects that Arya might be who she is. You are all free to say "I told you so" when I'm wrong.

    Why are they going in to battle with Bullwinkle on their banners?

    Finally got all caught up with this (Hockey playoffs have been causing all kinds of havoc on my viewing schedule).

    That Joffrey is one sick kid (is that what happens because he was born of incest?). I knew when he had the two whores, that this was going to involve some S&M, only I thought HE was going to do the beating. We knew he has that cruel streak in him. Also, is there a reason why, as king, he couldn't just tell his Uncle to either take a hike or, even have him killed? The funny thing about Joffrey is that when it came to killing Ned, he dismissed the advice of his mother, yet now that he is king, he seems to be bowing to the will of his Uncle.

    I liked Dany's powerplay at Qarth. It was a huge risk, but she found one ally. It should be interesting going forward to see how she uses this. Oh, and we need to have Dany in various stages of undress like last year :)

    The one thing I didn't get at Harranhall. If they are torturing and killing prisoners in front of the rest of the prisoners, and the prisoners know they are going to be killed regardless of whether they give up any info, why even bother?

    I too thought that Tywin recognized Arya somehow. It seemed odd that he would A) pick her out as a girl, and B) decide to hire her. My thought was that he knew and this gives him some more leverage in his efforts to get Jamie back.

    I found the Stannis vs. Renley scenes immensely interesting. I liked the back and forth between the two.

    The smoke queef - Yes, my first thought was the Lost Smoke Monster. I had no idea she was pregnant until she disrobed.

    Also Mr. Merkin, if what you said is true, you should have spoilerized that. This is NOT clear that this is going to happen. Many (most?) of us didn't read the books (I read the first one only so far) so that is a MAJOR spoiler.

    Yeah, I have mixed feelings about Joffrey. On one hand, I grit my teeth everytime I see him. OTOH, anytime he's on screen, I can at least hope he gets slapped. :)

    I really really don't think they're looking for information, or even want to get it. They just want to torture people, and it's more fun if your future victims are watching.

    That's why Tywin was so pissed...it was wasteful.

    Then why bother asking them for info? Just a ruse?

    I had the same thoughts. What incentive do the prisoners have to say anything beyond telling the torturer what to do with himself?

    I found it interesting that Tywin spotted Arya as a girl immediately, while everyone else was clueless. :)

    Agreed! I'm hoping it was a joke, but if real, it would certainly be a spoiler.

    I've read all the books and have no idea what he's talking about. It's just some made up silliness for unknown reasons, so don't worry about it.

    You would think that Robb, Stannis, Renly, the old guy and whoever else I've forgotten would be smart enough to team up and totally kick Lannister butt and then fight over the crown later. You might as well get rid of the common enemy first.

    This was funny. Seeing the PO'ed reactions to it because people think it is a spoiler is even funnier.
