    That's interesting. When / where was that the case? Was that only for rare book collections?

    My daughter has been watching, starting at the beginning. She really hates Jaime. I've been telling her he gets better. Last night was the bear. I asked if he redeemed himself yet. Not yet.

    And this is why the Stark family keeps getting slain. Seriously, what did Brandon think was gonna happen? He goes to the king, and says "kill your son for his crimes". Daddy King is just gonna "sure thing Bran"?

    Honor and nobility is a great thing. But unless you temper it with reality, and awareness of the political situation... :thumbsdown:

    Chains went out of fashion as books became easier to and consequently less costly to produce (and cheaper to replace if lost or stolen). And, as books became more affordable and libraries grew, space to store then became more of an issue and thus the switch from laying them flat to stacking them side by side. All of this was around the Middle Ages/Rennaissance.

    See here: https://books.google.com/books?id=3...nepage&q=library book flat down chain&f=false

    I'm an internet expert on this subject (meaning that I think I heard it mentioned in a podcast once but don't remember where or when, and I just spent about 2 minutes googling to make sure I'm not completely talking out of my ass), so take my explanation with a big fat grain of salt. Rob can give you more accurate info, I'm sure.

    I watched the scene of "the King in the North" again...the way I see the scene is that Sansa is enjoying how things turned out tremendously...then she looks over to Littlefinger and quickly realizes that this is not what LF wanted. Her smile vanishes as so she thinks "oh, crap. LF is already back to being an enemy. We're in grave danger".

    I don't see her being jealous or unhappy in the least about Jon being hailed.

    Even after reading the Sophie Turner interview where she explains how she thinks that scene should be interpreted?

    For me, yes..

    It makes no sense watching it thinking of how she interprets it.

    I've seen many interviews where the actor had no clue what was going on and was just guessing. Usually, the actor errs on the side of glorifying the person they are playing.

    You're assuming the writers told her what is going on so she could act it. I don't think that's necessarily true. It's just as likely that he told her "smile... Now look to your right...now stop smiling and look concerned"...they took 20 takes with different expressions and then the director picked the one that best expressed what he and the writers wanted.

    In this case, I say what they wanted is to show my "oh crap..." theory :D

    I don't think Littlefinger has anything to worry from Jon; he has no aspirations for the Iron Throne and anyone, who knows anything about any of the Starks (as Littlefinger clearly should) would knows that. Jon wants the protect the North -- that's it. Littlefinger helped him accomplish that (and saved his life in the process). It would not take much convincing to get Jon to support putting Littlefinger on the Iron Throne.

    Just recently we have had it thrown in our collective face that actors on GOT do no always tell the complete truth.

    On the other hand, Littlefinger needs a base of power to take and hold the Iron Throne; King of the North would provide such a base. On past experience, given two possible reasonable interpretations, for GOT the one containing more conflict and pain is the more likely. IMO Littlefinger is going to be a problem for Jon quite soon.

    Would you pronounce the acronym for the Center for Advanced Technology "cat" or "sat"?

    While Jon might not be willing to commit forces to stop Petyr from taking the Iron Throne (especially from Cersei), I doubt he would commit forces to helping him take it. Sansa, on the other hand, might be convinced. And that's where the danger to Jon arises. It's better for Petyr if Sansa controls the North, and even better yet if he can via marriage to her.

    But Sansa would never forgive Petyr if he physically harmed Jon (or even if she suspected it was him when it was, in fact, someone else). And Petyr knows this. So if he knows about Jon's true parentage, he might instead try leading people to the realization that Ned Stark's blood does not, in fact, "run through his veins" in the hope that finding out that Jon is a Targaryen when another Targaryen is coming to conquer the Seven Kingdoms might cause him to lose support.

    I think that shows a pretty dim view of the whole writing/acting/filmmaking process. I think it would be ludicrous to assume that the writers didn't have a sense of how they wanted Sansa to react in that scene, and just as unbelievable that they wouldn't communicate that information to the actor and director.

    GoT is planned way better than that. No way are they telling Sophie, "OK, give us a happy look, now give us a scared look, now give us a thoughtful look, now give us a confused look, now give us a wary look, now give us an 'oh crap' look..." and then deciding the tone of the scene in the editing room.

    I think that's obviously a very different situation. Why would Sophie Turner need to lie about that?

    I read the interview, I don't see it in the scene.. They might have given her a few directions to go, but the end result they went with something that doesn't resemble what she's saying. She might be clinging to an idea based on a take where they asked her to emote something.

    I wouldn't be against Sansa becoming a power hungry narcissist. It would be a return to roots of being a naive little girl thinking hitching her coattails to Petyr would actually be good for her in some romantic fantasy.

    Not really. For example, the bridge scene (and scene leading up to it) with Arya and the waif.

    Sorry, if I were to tell you it would be a spoiler for next season.
