    Evidently, she doesn't have the ear of the king, anymore, so she's powerless. I guess. Not sure why the Joffrey would be be unconcerned about what Tyrion is up to, though. Also, don't forget that Tyrion is also a Lannister, so Maester was being loyal to one Lannister while betraying another.

    Adding to your list: Tyrion also controls the Goldcloacks (or whatever the name of the palace guard and King's Landing police force is). Tyrion now controls everything.

    I wonder what the spawn of the new "not a lady" (what is her name?) and Hodor would look like!

    She doesn't have to. She cuts the guy doing defense in half.

    Of course, that could change at any moment if Joffrey said "Off with his head!"...

    Is it better to be smart, or King? :D

    Says to whom? Like I said, the Goldcloaks are not in the "king's" control. About the only one Joffrey controls at this point is the Hound; who would fare about as well as Yoren did in a fight against 20 men (including Bronn).



    Edit: did I use "whom" correctly here? it feels wrong...

    Well, the Kingsguard ARE under the King's direct control. And they are, theoretically, the best of the best. That's why the last time a king was taken down, it was one of the Kingsguard (Jaime) who did the deed...because if anybody else had tried, they would have had to go through Jaime and six other guys who were as good or better.

    Ok, let me do the math...bear with me since I'm not good at math...

    so 7 king's guards you say...ok...minus the Kingslayer...that would be (don't tell me)....6 guys, right.

    Ok...Goldcloaks...how many would that be? 100 or so? that's about 15 to 17 swords and spears per guard...and I think there are more goldcloaks than 100

    I'll take tyrion over the king in that one!

    There is something like 2000 City Watch (goldcloaks). But Joffrey would also command the actual Lannister armies and kings armies. Ned thought having the City Watch on his side would be enough, but obviously he didn't even have them.

    I thought it was fine. I always pictured Tilda Swinton as her in the books for some reason. But's she's not tall enough or manly enough (and my sister said she wasn't ugly enough). But it worked in my head. :D

    Yes basically she wants to get pregnant by the King, and she'll do anything that needs doing to make sure that happens.

    I'm not sure how your comment relates to my comment. I'm talking about why Tyrion wants Sansa safe, which is the question mwhip asked. You seem to be talking about something completely different.

    There's something odd about the power structure here. Joffrey isn't king yet, as far as I remember. Isn't Cersie the Queen Regent because Joffrey is not yet king? But didn't Tywin send Tyrion there to take control of things, because Cersie was botching the job so badly? I think it's not really clear who officially has the power in Kings Landing. But of course as The Spider suggests, who officially has the power is not necessarily the same as who actually has the power.

    Who says they're not having horse burgers? There are more horses than just her Silver there, who die.

    Yum yum!

    I just wanted to point out that I'm okay with them not touching on Daenerys' story and Stannis' story in this episode. There's a lot of story to be told!

    I'm wondering why the guy leading the kids to the wall didn't just kill the two gold cloak guys last week instead of letting them go back and get reinforcements. Whatever his plan was, it didn't work too well.

    Yeah, I didn't like that they left the stronghold they were in and just rushed headlong out there with a bunch of untrained greenboys. It seemed very foolish.
