    I was assuming her wolf would have to show up sooner or later. I wish she spoke of him though to not only remind viewers but to show how deeply connected they are and how much she misses her wolfie.

    FYI - Her wolf is a girl, Nymeria. The wolves are gender-tied to their Stark kids.

    Not sure I'd agree with that. Ned did that because The Mountain (Ser Gregor Clagain, was it?) had gone on ransacking towns in Cat's homelands. That was in retaliation for Cat seizing Tyrion, which was in turn for pushing Bran out the window (she had the wrong guy, but the right family).


    Which brings me back to something I meant to ask last season but forgot. In episode 4 or 5, when Cat was at the Inn and took Tyrion into custody, what was she doing? When she saw Tyrion come in, it seemed like she was trying to hide, hoping he wouldn't notice her. Once he brought attention to her, she stood up and did all of that almost like she was trying to deflect attention from herself. Why exactly did she go from hiding in the corner to center of attention? If she had thought Tyrion was really responsible, why didn't she call for his arrest the moment he walked in?

    About this week's episode, do we have any idea where Arya and the other were at in their journey? Where were they located, and what was that building that they were staying in?

    Right. It's Jamie who started it.

    Now that Robb (and Ned and Cat) has figured it out...I wonder if Tyrion will also figure out that his hero big brother set him up?

    Jamie did not set up anyone, and as far as I know there is no evidence to that fact.

    The attack on Brans life was done with a dagger that Tyrion has won from Littlefinger. So the last we knew of that knife it belonged to Tyrion. What I don't recall is if Tyrion gave an explanation for that. I'm thinking he said it was stolen from him, but not sure if my memory is correct. If so, you could theorize that Jamie stole Tyrion's knife and gave it to Bran's assassin.

    Jaime started it by pushing Bran out the window. Everything else followed from that.

    And Bran wouldn't have seen Jaime and Cersei if they hadn't been in Winterfell because the King needed a new Hand because Jon Arryn died of suspicious causes. How far back can we go?

    Actually in retrospect the whole Wolves/Stark kids thing is brilliant foreshadowing to the story.
    Wolf (Ned) and Stag (Robert) kill one another, leaving a litter of wolves without a parent. Sansa's wolf gets executed, (she is no longer a Stark), Aria's has to fend for itself (she goes on the run).
    Now we have Bran who seems to have a psychic connection to his wolf, Robb's who is the fierce warrior (one of the battle reports said his wolf killed several Lannister soldiers) and Jon Snow's who can detect the White Walkers (useful skill beyond the wall).

    Tyrion did talk about it. Littlefinger said that the dagger was his and that the Imp won it by betting against Jamie Lannister. When this was told to Tyrion, that he bet against his own brother, he advised Catelyn it was a lie. Tyrion said, "I never bet against my brother."

    So Tyrion claims never to have owned the dagger. Littlefinger says it was his at first and that Tyrion won it from him. Take from that what you will, but I don't see a path in there where it was Tyrion's dagger and Jamie took it from him. It was either (A) Tyrion's and he is lying, and was somehow involved in Bran's attack in his bedroom, or (B) Littlefinger is lying for reasons unknown, and someone else, possibly Littlefinger himself, was involved in the second attack on Bran.

    Disclaimer: Although I am reading the books, I do not know for certain who was involved in that incident, but I know that either Littlefinger or Tyrion is lying about who owned the dagger.

    My response was to the fact that Lord Kronos claimed that Jamie set up Tyrion. I was just saying that there is nothing to point to that.

    And if we are going to go down that road, Bran should not have been peeping on people doing the naughty bang bang. He could have saved a whole lot of people trouble if he just passed that window on by. :D

    At least one step farther--Jon Arryn died because he found out about Jamie and Cersei.

    Jamie is in a lot of ways the root cause of the war, but he's the Gavrilo Princip (the guy who shot Archduke Ferdinand which led to WWI) of this story.

    If my memory serves, and most of this is explained better in the book and is hard to ascertain from the show, Cat is trying to lay low and remain hidden so no one knows her whereabouts as she returns to Winterfell. Her head could be worth a lot, especially to the Lannisters. So her first instinct is to hide and hope Tyrion will not see her or recognize her. In the book, and this isn't really a spoiler, just more of an explanation, she runs through her head all of the people at the inn and recognizes that many are either vassals to her father in Riverrun or somehow vassals or bound to Winterfell. So when she recognizes that Tyrion is going to see her, she realizes that her best bet is to rally out all the men who rightfully should stand behind her and arrest Tyrion based on the claims that he tried to murder her son. That's her best escape route to get the numbers on her side quickly. Bronn, the sellsword also happens to be there and says he will help because he knows there's coin in it.

    Remember that she was in King's Landing secretly and no one save the Starks and Littlefinger knew she was there, or why.

    If you look at the map they were not far from Harrenhall, in an abandoned keep in a town on the edge of God's Eye. It's not explained at all where they are in the show.

    Or if they'd have just been able to keep their crap together. I still find it a bit hard to believe these two have been secretly having sex for years and they are still sooooo hot for each other they have to sneak away having sex in someone else's house. Ugh. That just bugs.

    But that's not true.

    Wow I think you just cleared that up for me. I hadn't realized that Tyrion said he never bet against his brother (or I did and forgot) so you're right....and I don't think Tyrion is lying.

    That's actually a very good assertion and I can honestly say that although I'm reading the books, I've never looked at it exactly that way. Well done!

    But don't they? Robert brings Ned and his family to King's Landing, virtually against his will, which leads to his demise. Ned, by being there and being the only honest and moral character, unveils why Jon Arryn was killed and that Cersei and Robert's kids are actually Cersei and Jamie's kids. Because of that information, and because of what Bran saw, Cersei thinks it best to try and get rid of Robert through a "hunting accident" before that information is revealed. Something that likely would not have happened if Ned had not sprung his knowledge upon her. So in turn, it was Ned's forthrightness that started the domino effect that led to Robert's death just as Robert's insistence on Ned going to King's Landing led to Ned's death.
