    It's almost like it was s bad idea to hand the keys to the castle to s bunch of religious fanatics. I guess now we see what Tommen is made of. He better partner up with the queen if thorns, quick.

    Seems like Jamie nearly outed himself to his daughter.

    That was some precise timing on the deadly poison.

    Glad Mormont finally caught up with Daenerys. PLEASE TAKE THE GIFT.

    Poor Sansa. Her one hope dashed. I guess now she really knows just how brainwashed Theon is. Like I said last thread though, to think that is as bad as it gets shows a real lack of imagination. And if there's anything Ramsey doesn't lack for it's imagination.

    I almost forgot Sam! One narrowly avoided rape and he got his cherry popped. Bravo. Nice timing, Ghost. Should have listened and gotten south of the wall. With Jon gone it's no place for Sam or his little family.

    Cersei learns that like her, Karma is a b*h.

    That was some decent tension or whether Mormont would get Daenerys' attention before she left.

    We finally see Lady Terrel and Littlefinger admit that they killed Jeffy.

    It's not even karma; it's just plain stupidity.

    Did she seriously think it was a good idea to leak other people's sexual improprieties to the Inquisition considering the many sexual bodies she has in her own closet, metaphorically speaking (and almost literally)?

    Well, yes. Clearly, she did. Hence stupidity.

    It aired on Memorial Day weekend in seasons 1 and 2 and the ratings dropped quite a bit so they skipped it for seasons 3 and 4. I don't know why they went back this year. Maybe they think it's popular enough not to worry about it now, but it will be curious to see what the ratings will be for tonight.

    I thought it was very well done. Jaime looks like he's about to say something (I'm your father, perhaps?) but then stops himself.

    Cersei was even stupid enough to go to the High Sparrow minus her guards. She would have still ended up in jail, but at least a few of those nuts would have died doing so.

    I think that one sand snake had an amazing body. Bronn is one lucky dude if he ends up alive and with her.

    Sam broke his Watch vows fer reals, too.

    Bronn learned who the most beautiful woman in the world is. I was half expecting that the antidote was the real poison.

    Who was the kindly giant who broke Tyrion's chains?

    It was so poetic seeing this all happen after hearing Cersei earlier this season lecturing Jamie about how he never thinks through the consequences.

    As the high sparrow is sitting there talking about what secrets she may have to uncover, she sits there smiling as if without a care in the world. I tried to do a Ralph Wiggam/Lisa Simpson take on it, where I pinpoint the exact second when it dawns on her. I really can't tell if she was oblivious until she saw Lancel, or if she started to realize it earlier and was just putting on a game face and thinking "oh man, I hope he's not talking about what I think he's talking about".

    Also kudos to the producers. I love when they manage to misdirect us with the episode title

    I'm remembering how Tywin told her hat she's not as smart as she thinks she is. Dad was right.

    Sam would beg to differ. The vows CLEARLY state ;) that they shall take no wife. There's nothing there about good old humping with random women!

    They already admitted it, albeit separately.

    Can someone remind me as to who that guy Lancel was and his connection to Cersei?

    He's her cousin (Tywin's brother's son).

    During season one, he was Robert's squire. When Cersei feared that Ned was going to tell Robert the truth about the children, she encouraged Robert to go hunting and had Lancel keep Robert extremely drunk during the trip. Because he was so drunk, Robert was gored by a boar and eventually died from the wounds.

    Also, when Jaime went away to war, Lancel was like a brother to Cersei (if you know what I mean).

    Not really. Last season they made a point of emphasizing that the vow states that brothers of the black watch may not "take a wife". There is nothing in the vow that explicitly prohibits casual sex. They even said something to the effect of: "If all brothers who visit the brothel in town were to be executed, there'd be nobody left to guard the wall."

    Although Sam's relationship with Gilly has become increasingly marital, in all but name...
