    Wow. Fantastic episode. I have a ton to say but short on time.

    I will say this: Stannis saying that Stark was too honorable and that is what got him killed displayed a depth of character and nuance to his thinking that is completely out of character for him.

    I agree - it finally felt like something was happening and we were moving forward.

    Poor Tommen, he's so doomed.

    I mean, he'd be doomed even if this weren't Game of Thrones. But this is Game of Thrones, so he's extra-doomed!

    So the question:

    Was Jorah hanging around in a brothel with Hooker Queen waiting on his turn, or did he just land in a brothel for a drink and Hooker Queen just happened to be there?

    Hey Sansa, go marry this psychopath whose dad murdered your mother and brother. Because, you know, you've suffered enough.

    Tommen is a lucky young man.

    Another out of character moment is when Littlefinger told Ramsey that he doesn't know much about him.

    First, it's not like Baelish not to know everything. Second, it's pretty hard not to hear about the sadistic prick that goes around peeling the skin of everyone, including a Lord, his wife, and his son.

    Also, I understand that Sansa wouldn't give a second glance to a man cleaning poop off the ground. But how do the people if Winterfell not notice Reek/Theon? how is HE still alive?

    A question to all the ladies: who would you rather marry (and you must pick one!): Joffrey or Ramsey? :eek:

    I'm no lady, but since they are the same sadistic type of bastard, I would choose the one with the better title and home. So Joffrey. :cool:

    Just to clarify, he made the son watch, after which the son (now Lord) promptly paid his taxes.

    I'm loving the new Sansa storyline. The Bolton's don't know who they're messing with when it comes to Littlefinger. Hopefully Sansa does get her vengeance.

    Had to laugh when Stannis told Jon it wasn't a compliment meant when he said he is just like his father.

    So the question is, which queen is Jorah taking Tyrion to?

    I think it's mainly about Baelish's vengeance. Remember, they killed the only woman he loved, etc.
    This will not end well for the Boltons.

    I doubt Littlefinger was telling the truth. I would assume this marriage will last as long as his did to Caitlyn's sister. The idea is that Littlefinger gets Winterfell by proxy through Sansa or at least get that influence. Sure it's revenge, but it's also part of Littlefinger's quest for power and influence.

    On your other point, I was thinking the same thing, but perhaps his current state they feel is punishment enough?

    I don't think he will ever go back to King's Landing. He pretty much betrayed them when he saved Dany from that wine merchant.

    Exactly, I think the queen he's referring to is Denerys. In his mind, she is the only true queen right?

    Not even a question. He wants Dany back. Or at least, he wants to be back in her presence. Being drunk, I wonder what he thinks Tyrion will be worth to her.

    I laughed at Tyrion being taken to "the Queen". Tyrion thinks it's Ceresi and he's dead. Little does he know it's exactly where he was headed anyway! Wacky hijinks ensure.

    I can't remember: had Dany already expressed interest in Tyrion?

    Yeah, I don't know what value Tyrion has to Dany other than what they were going to "sell" to her when they arrived. Is it possible Jorah's going to buy his forgiveness by returning to Kings Landing with Tyrion? Or do you think news of the reward for him hasn't reached there yet?
