You have a newborn and made it to bed? I didn't think that was possible!

He made it to bed. The wife, not so much.

Yeahbut, remember that Robert had no qualms about giving in and ordering that the butcher boy be run down and killed as well as ordering Sansa's wolf to be killed just to shut up Cersei.

That was kind of the point. Robert was a great warrior, but a lousy king. He hated the reality of being King, all the politics and so on. If you couldn't just smash it with a hammer, it was more complex than it needed to be.

The plot to get rid of Robert Baratheon was inevitable. It's just that everybody wanted to get the pieces into place so they'd benefit the most when it happened.

Please do not "Fixed Your Post" on my posts. I find that rude and annoying. Thank you for your consideration.

Robert orders Sansa's direwolf killed when they couldn't find Arya's direwolf(who actually bit Joffrey_, BUT he DID NOT tell the Hound to murder the Butcher's Boy. That was done off-screen presumably by either Cersei or Joffrey.

Robert orders the direwolf killed.

Pycell was taken away while with a whore. Something that could have been done at any time. No need for Cersei to be asleep as she would have been in a totally different part of the palace.
What I'm thinking of was Tyrion getting Cersei out of the way during a meeting of the small council so he could get this stuff in the works without her. By the time she recovered it would be too late. It may have been from the books--sorry--I guess I play the scenes in my head as I read, and then I think I saw them.

Another Game of Thrones Facebook Page for this episode.

There is a joke in there for the book readers. Not a spoiler, just a complaint some of the book readers had over in the other thread.
