Sweet deal.
Also, she may breastfeed him too, if he's lucky.
Why buy a cow if you can marry one.

YES!! I was going to mention that part.

So badasssss.

ETA This. Because I loved it so much.

Not exactly a kid. I keep seeing him as Marcus Junius Brutus from HBO's "Rome".

I didn't watch that and you're right, he wasn't a kid but to Blackfish he surely was.

Okay I lied because this was just too good. I've missed Varys. And he and Tyrion's friendship.

I was cackling during this.

For a show that so often zips through its massive cast, it sure does have a lot of great character moments...

Remember earlier how Cersei complained bitterly to her father about how she had been married off to Robert Baratheon and had no say in the matter?

It's part of why she is who she is. This is a woman who doesn't like the role women are allowed to have, and wants more, and so she uses whatever she has to gain power. She's manipulative because she can't just pick up a sword and stab someone, much as she might want to.

I wish the producers of the show made an official weekly podcast (à la those two "Lost" guys).

Then again Lysa's in a pretty good position...she's in charge of the Vale, she has a son who is the legitimate heir (personal shortcomings notwithstanding), she has no family to pawn her off, she has the loyalty of her people, there's no king strong enough to assert rights over her, and she has a stronghold that would be very hard to dislodge her from. So if she disapproves of a prospective union, she's in a better position than most women to register her complaints. Violently.

Considering that Dany went out of her way to get the one innocent (the female translator) away from the slavers, they can now be considered her enemies. And we know what she said about her enemies.

She's not just a translator. More like a mediator. BTW, I enjoyed the slave master's lines. It's like he was challenging her translating skills on purpose.

I'm pretty sure there is no way Dani is really going to give up her biggest Dragon.

Once Dani has her slave soldiers, I'm sure she will get that Dragon back.

I was thinking this too. If she is like the dragon's mother, wouldn't it just fly back to her once it got free? Unless the guy plans to keep it chained all its life.

Another great moment was Robb's wife (I forget her name) scaring the bejeezus out of the 2 Lannister boys

It's not a full moon tonight, is it?

As far as Jaime goes, I'd like to give the show (and the writer) a round of applause. Ever since he was captured by the Starks, I kept saying to myself "yeah, you gotta keep him alive as a hostage, but you could always mess him up a bit of lop off his hand."

I mean, this was the jackass who pushed Bran out a window and crippled him.

Well the story might as well be true since he has a Direwolf to do pretty much as he commands.

Yeah. That occurred to me, too.

Maybe he'll find a way to shaft Daddy Lannister out of ton of money or worse, "Dad, this treaty you signed says that you are responsilbel for all of the Kingdom's expenses and war losses."

He's also the Jackass who sent an assassin to the Starks carrying Tyrion's dagger. It never made any sense that that "sellsword" didn't have his own sword.

I think that's EXACTLY it. It seemed obvious to me that a person of Tyrion's cunning would be good at that job, and it's also a very important job. My first thought was why would Tywin give the Imp that job, but I think he underestimates his undersized son, and expects him to fail. If so, I hope it DOES bite him in the ass!
