    Not a ruse, an excuse.

    If you want to torture people, you have to be asking them for information. Because otherwise, it would just be RUDE.

    It's just important to pick people who don't have the information you're asking for. Because otherwise, they'd tell you, and then you'd lose your excuse.

    :D

    Yep. Tyrion's power comes from being named as acting hand by the real hand, Tywin, when King Joffrey picks his hand in the first place. It has to come down to nobody wanting to mess with Tywin.

    Cersie's hoo-hah should be tattoo-labeled "Lanisters only."

    The entry Qarth deal is a direct lift from the Wizard of Oz. ;)

    Will you show us the dragons?
    --No.
    Why not?
    --You think this sucker is dripping in CGI budget? :D

    I told you so. Here's a hint:

    Tywin never even sees her in the book.

    You have to understand how large this area is. The Lannister men are tearing through every town and village around the God's Eye. Pillaging, raping and destroying pretty much everything. Everyone in this lot is mixed together. They don't know who's who or where they're from. Polliver and the Tickler are going through people at random, asking questions and enjoying the torture process. No one's even looking for Arya or Gendry at this point. They're in the middle of a war.

    Do you really think that Tywin would recognize Arya and just not tell anyone to keep her safe and secure? he would risk someone raping her or killing her for fun on her way to her new job?

    he can't just trade Sensa for Jaime. He has to find Arya as well. And he's just going to take a chance on ANYTHING happening to her if he really found her?

    I may end up being wrong, but I just don't see that happening.

    Tickler is asking one important question, "where is the Brotherhood?"

    Speaking of which, either it slipped past me in the show, or it relates to the books, but:

    What is the Brotherhood?

    They haven't mentioned it in the show up until now. It is the "Brotherhood Without Banners" also known as the Knights of Hollow Hill which is lead by Beric Dondarrion. Dondarrion was charged with bringing Gregor Clegane to justice by Ned Stark before he died. They act as a sort of guerrilla force in the war. Stark did dispatch Dondarrion in season 1 but it was a pretty quick scene and forgettable if you didn't know who he was from the books.

    not really in the show yet. I don't want to go to far with this, so I'll just say that they're
    the group that Ned enlisted to bring The Mountain to justice and are led by Beric Dondarrion, who we saw very briefly in Season 1.

    ETA - Took too long coming up with a good answer, Audioscience beat me to it

    The way things are going in the story so far, I wouldn't put it past Martin (or HBO) to actually DO that.

    But yeah, it appears I've been punked (or whatever the 2010s version of that is).

    AFAIK, that was the King's guard on Jeffy's orders. These are Lannister men....oh yeah, they did ask for Gentry.

    my take on that was that the "gestation" period was VERY short and she had no signs till right then. I assumed that romp on the table had happened the night before and she gave "birth" the next night.

    If I were writing the story, I'd probably do that! :eek: Which is probably why nobody has ever been interested in any of my stories. ;)

    well, given the time it takes to march from one place to another, I say maybe a month ;)

    they did travel by ship this time. Stannis' army must be really small.

    It was Robett Glover who was captured along with his men. You guys already caught that so... Not sure why Robett Glover always fascinated me but he did- and there's really not much (in the big picture) about him in the books.

    Nope, that's not the result of incest. It's the result of bad parenting. When you've got a mother who tells you things like "If you want to [screw] painted whores you can, because the world will be exactly what you want it to be", then you can expect to have a pretty deviant, antisocial child. The real world has plenty of people raised exactly that way, and many of them turn out just as bad (though luckily few have enough power to get away with acting as terribly as Joffrey).

    On the other hand, Tyrion has probably shown himself to be much more of an authority figure. I'm assuming scenes like the slap in Winterfell were probably not one-time occurrences.


    Well, as dumb as he is, surely even Joffrey realizes his power isn't much without Tywin providing the bankroll. As we learned last season, the kingdom is quite far in debt.

    Yeah, I guess I don't know where Stannis was for the map romp in relationship to where they had that meeting on the cliff or how long it took them to get there. I guess I just assumed it had only been a couple of days.

    I'm pretty sure the meeting on the cliff was at Storms End:

    http://viewers-guide.hbo.com/game-of-thrones/season2/#!/locations/storms-end/

    The maproom romp happened back at Dragonstone:

    http://viewers-guide.hbo.com/game-of-thrones/season2/#!/locations/dragonstone/

    As for time, I don't know, but the romp happened in episode 11 and this was episode 14, and in the other episodes we've seen a lot of time pass for the other groups. We've seen Cat ride all the way from the Robb's position in the North down to where Renley is. Then Littlefinger had to get wind that she was down there, then travel there himself with Ned's bones. I'd assume that's at least a month minimum.

    Of course who knows how well the various timelines of different groups line up with each other in the show. It could be that Stannis' episode 11 could happen at the same time as Renley's episode 13, but without evidence of such, I'm going to assume things that appear in an episode together probably happen and roughly the same time.

    Dany, Tommen and Myrcella seem fine.

    Viserys and the Mad King...not so much.
