    I wonder if Ned killed all the women who were helping his sister...only way to keep the secret is to not have anyone know about it.

    That doesn't seem at all Ned-like.

    I suspect there has to be some mechanism for the secret to get out, although her servants don't seem a very satisfying one. Perhaps Ned's buddy/Meera's father?

    I agree. So it seems to me that are are a few people who can confirm the story; one of which Bran will probably go to once he passes the Wall (Mereen's father).

    Glad I called it in the thread for ep 9; that everyone will turn to Jon, not Sansa.

    The way I interpreted the look between Sansa and Littlefinger is this:

    Sansa "ha. didn't see that one coming, did you? You thought it would be me and you would get the North by marrying me. You did all this for nothing".

    LF: "well, crap. that didn't work out. I wonder if Jon likes men!".

    I booed the screen a la Princess Bride. "you are the queen of garbage!"

    She tried to save Tommen by keeping him away.

    Speaking of which, he took the name King's Landing way too seriously.

    Oh crap? Why would she be upset that the north is united.

    I took it more as he was not happy because it puts a block in the way of his dream and she knows it and knows he will scheme against John now.

    Was I having a nightmare, or did it say season finale? Oh, crap!

    Otherwise, fantastic ep!

    He didn't stick the landing, though. Multiple point deduction.

    The music associated with Cersei this episode was nothing short of the best music I've heard in this series. Amazingly well done.

    I love that with the exception of Jon in the north, what we have left is all female rulers. Four of them allied against Cersei.

    There is a theory going around (with less support than the R+L=J one) that I'll spolerize though it is not really a spoiler if it's just a theory:

    The theory is that Tyrion's father was not Tywin but the Mad King. That would make Tyrion and Dany half siblings and allow him to potentially be the third dragon rider (along with Jon).

    So, Cercei is more mad than the Mad King. I think Jaime's work is not yet done. Now we wait for SE07. :(

    I don't know. That look made me think that Littlefinger might have been successful in getting her to think about ruling the North and the Seven Kingdoms. Sansa might not be happy with her position compared to Jon's.

    Ha!

    I don't think so. Aeron wanted to kill everybody. Cersei was pretty clever about primarily targeting her enemies (yes, with a fair amount of collateral damage, but she got the job done). It's just that, as is so often the case, she overreacted without regard for consequences.

    So, not mad. Just kinda stupid (or at least, nowhere near as smart as she thinks she is, which I think is her defining characteristic).

    Do we want to know what the Mountain was doing to Cercei's tormentor?

    He was standing there looking Mountain-y. :eek:

    I thought she was going to blind the woman at first (after saying that she wanted her face to be the last thing she saw). He didn't really seem to be doing anything nor does he seem all that capable of doing any of the normal male vs female evil that one might expect. He just seems to be REALLY big and mostly dead.

    Not Grimm's...Old Nan's. It's a call back to Bran's telling of Old Nan's story of the Rat Cook, who was cursed by the Gods for breaking the laws of hospitality.

    How appropriate! That's exactly what Walder did.
