It is a logical leap that somehow, someway, Littlefinger will weasel a better position forhimself with Sansa and Lysa both.
Or Littlefinger either doesn't actually want to marry Lysa, or doubts his ability to accomplish that, but isn't willing to object to the Hand's strong suggestion to go try to marry Lysa.

They might have done so just to humiliate Jamie by tricking him into drinking it. OTOH you can get almost the same amusement simply by telling him the water is horse piss - and then you don't need to bother collecting any, or contaminating a canteen with it.

It looked to me to be sewn shut. Which makes sense, since he could conceivably cast a spell if allowed to speak.

I guess we then know he did not come from Pyke!

LOL...That's just Theon

Their motto is "We do not sow"

A horrible pun, I know, which is why I didn't want to actually type it

On my TV, it looked like the Wizard's mouth was sewn shut. Looking at the screen capture on the above facebook spoof, it does indeed look like some sort of rag is wrapped around his head, and that the rag has some sort of string bundling it up, which gave the mistaken impression of his mouth being sewn shut.

I liked the scene where Sansa is praying at the weirwood stump in Kings Landing. They didn't feel a need to point out that it was a stump, just had it there, her praying. Good stuff.

I didn't notice that.

billypritchard is referring to the fact that most northerners pray to the old gods, which they always do at weirwood trees (the red trees with faces on them, like in that garden in Winterfell, or the tree where Jon Snow took his oath to the nights watch). We were told at one point that when the southerners turned to the new gods, they cut down all of the weirwood trees in the south. But apparently sansa found a stump to pray at.

Thanks for pointing that out. I did not notice that at all and I doubt I would have noticed it on my third viewing.

At this point, I watch it live first, a second time Monday night, and a third time Saturday or Sunday to prepare for the next show. The third viewing works well because we had discussed the show on TCF by then and I've read 2-3 reviews. I can then just relax and absorb everything going on.

You don't think 8000 Unsullied could persuade someone in the harbor to take them on board?

I did notice the stump. Also in the opening scene of Winterfell while everything else is burning they show weirwood trees coming up green through the black mess. I take that as a sign that the Starks aren't done yet.

Do people know about the weirwood trees solely from the tv show or from the books?

I have to say how much I like it when the scenes shift to Danaerys from an aesthetics point of view. Everything in the north is various shades of black, grey and dirty white with a whole bunch of mud brown thrown in. At least it's bright and sunny with some muted colors in Danys-ville.

I knew of them from the TV. I've not read the books.

You'll probably remember from early - maybe Season 1 - Ned Stark is praying at the trees, and Catelyn or someone comes out and we get to see all the faces on the trees, like they're talking back. Or something like that... Hopefully one with a better memory than mine will also chime in here.

I agree. There were many references in Season 1. Jon Snow also took his vows next to one at Castle Black. Even the Maester crawled to the base of the tree to die (after Winterfell was burned down).

Jon Snow also made his vows to a heart tree because he believed in the old gods

Yes, I agree. The other locals are very dreary and not very pleasing to look at. But wherever Danaerys seems to be is much brighter, colorful and pleasant to see.
