    Rorge and Biter were able to sneak up on Arya and the Hound because they were distracted dealing with the dying guy. Another lesson learned.

    As soon as Lysa saw Littlefinger kiss Sansa, I said to myself "OK, she (Lysa) is dead!"

    No. I was really hoping to see her gone. Would have been the best possible development for her character at this point.

    She also learned to wipe her sword on her victim's clothes. I thought that was pretty funny.

    I really enjoyed it when Sansa slapped the little brat. Almost redeemed her character. Almost.

    Littlefinger is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. He's now killed off two of my most hated people. He's on a roll!

    Littlefinger has some splainin' to do. "Lysa got drunk and fell through the big hole in her living room floor. Meet your new boss, Sansa!"

    Same here, though it's really the fault of the producers for having such an obviously spoilerish episode title.

    A thought, am I right in saying that the only people who know Sansa's true identity were Robin and Lysa? Assuming Littlefinger wants to set himself up as Lord of the Vale, with his "niece" at his side, doesn't that mean that Robin is due for some "flight time"?

    I can't imagine Robin is going to last much longer. If nothing else, his food supply has been cut off.

    Can someone remind me what authority Littlefinger has over the Vale? Was it solely by appointment of the King? I'm wondering if the people of the Vale are going to support him. He might need to keep Robin around for a while, acting as his 'protector', and then arrange for an 'accident' some time down the line when his rule is established.

    He married Lysa, who was ruler of the Vale.

    My understanding would be that LF would be in charge until Robin came of age.

    Of course, Robin will never come of age...

    No spoiler. I think I (and others) speculated how it was going to go with Oberyn Martell and we got it right.

    What system of communication are the Lannisters using? The WinterNet?
    They get the word that Hound killed 5 guys - and I think the only one left alive was the innkeeper - put a Lannister Fatwa on his head and get immediate results?


    It occurred to me that Littlefinger knew Lysa was watching.

    The new insight we get is that Littlefinger may truly be motivated by getting revenge for Catlin's murder.

    Right, without Robin, Littlefinger is nothing. If Robin dies, it's not Littlefinger who gets the Vale, it's whoever is Robin's heir (which should be Sansa).

    The look on Jorah's face as Daario walked out smelling like v***** was priceless. And I liked Dany's dress.

    Assuming that Sansa divorces her husband Tyrion or Tyrion dies and then Sansa marries her cousin. Why should she do that now that Lysa is no more?

    Besides, maybe Littlefinger really wants Sansa as a substitute Caitlin.

    No, the spoiler I'm talking about was the name of the next episode, which gives away the fact that Oberyn and the Mountain would be the two champions.

    But can't Tommen at that point (when Robin dies) simply give the Vale to LF? I'm not asking a rhetorical question.

    btw: anyone notice Lysa's list of people she "killed"? one of them was her husband but another was her father! are we glossing over the fact that she just confessed to killing her father or am I making a mountain out of a molehill?

    Which brings up why Tywin needed Tyrion to marry Sansa to get Winterfell, when there were only a handful of pesky kids to kill off to have a world with no Starks in it, and as far as he knew there were fewer Starks to kill than in reality.
