    Ramsay shoulda found a knife on his back courtesy of Theon...umm...Reek!! What a waste he is!!

    And that trial would have never taken place if Joffrey and/or Tywin were around!

    The Sand Snakes were pretty bad ass but I was hoping Bronn was going to at least hurt one of them.

    That ending was unnecessary.

    I was speechless during that last scene, praying to all the gods (old and new) that Theon would kill him. I can't believe he's so brainwashed he just watched his "sister" get raped by that psychopath.

    Also I'm surprised they let him identify himself as Theon Greyjoy.

    Was this Littlefinger's plan? He couldn't have actually believed Ramsey wouldn't hurt her?

    Why didn't they just kill Tyrion so they could cut off his **** in front of the merchant? Why does keeping him alive matter? Just so they don't have to lug his corpse around?

    I thought Mormont (?) was going to be challenged to prove his fighting prowess on the spot.

    Arya's not going to become a faceless man but she is going to get that girl's face.

    So is Cersei really trying to start a war with Highgarden, or is she

    Just.

    That.

    Stupid?

    There is no that this ends well for her or for the Kingdom. She is just that petty and hurt.

    I kept thinking that just before Ramsay started, a war horn would blow, and Stannis would lead his attack. But that only happens in fairy tales, and well, this ain't no fairy tale.:(

    Wow brutal ending - guess that is what they were referring to earlier in the interviews I watched. Hoping it doesn't get much darker than that but it very well could.

    Sand snakes were cool - still love Bronn though :)

    I think they needed someone of some rank to give away Sansa in the ceremony: having your sniveling tortured insane servant give away your bride to you can't be good for your stature.

    There's no real refrigeration available. Who knows how long they'd need to keep his corpse around... easier to keep him alive I'd think.

    After all that I doubt they wanted to risk giving him a weapon.

    Well, she's given herself deniability: she spoke out for the Queen at the hearing after all. I mean, it's obvious to everyone exactly what happened but she doesn't appear to be involved if you look at it from the outside.

    I'm not sure how much that matters to Highgarden though.

    Ramsay has allowed Reek to "pretend" he's Theon before when the Boltons first captured Moat Caillin. So it's not that surprising that Ramsay would allow it again in this situation.

    I think we're getting set up for Theon to kill Ramsay. I wanted to myself for sure.

    When Sansa started to undo her sleeves, I expected (wanted) her to pull out a dagger and kill him.

    Lady Olenna is smart. I'm surprised she didn't see through it. I knew what was going to happen to Loras...I just didn't know they were going to be able to snag Margaery in it as well. But as soon as she was called to testify, I knew they were just baiting her to incriminate herself, too.

    Cercei's risk here (and this is what Lady Olenna should have told Margaery to discuss with Tommen) is that if they are arresting Loras over these mere rumors of him being gay, how long before they come after Cercei and Jamie over those rumors, too (though they'll probably have to get creative due to the lack of a witness)?

    And WOW, if Tommen won't even raise a hand for his wife, I can totally see how this all plays out.

    Uncle Stannis is at the gate? He says King Robert isn't really my dad? [...later, back at castely rock...] There was no way to stop Uncle Stannis without violence...we'll find another way.

    She's probably just TOO smart. Sometimes, smart people just can't comprehend how stupid stupid people can be. From her perspective, why would Cersei do something that will probably result in the final destruction of her entire family? It would be incomprehensible, if you didn't realize just how stupid (and delusional) Cersei really is.

    She is like my 9-year-old. A clever bit of deception/lie/plot for instant gratification without any thought whatsoever to the eventual terrible consequences.

    Even more childlike is how she pretended to be like her father and kept writing. What an idiot.

    Cool? for all their tough talk, they couldn't beat 1.5 men in 5 minutes of fighting!

    Why can't a knight's squire know about a birthmark on his knight without having sex with him?

    That was pretty silly.

    Yeah, considering part of his job is to dress the boss for combat...

    There have been a couple of spots where I thought "this can't be in the books"...I mentioned them as they happened in these threads so I won't mention them again (since some might consider them a spoiler). But I'd be surprised if the case against Loras and the Queen was this slimsy in the book.

    I thought the same at first. But then remember, this is just a pre-trial hearing to decide if there's even sufficient evidence to at least bother with an actual trial. The birthmark evidence might be flimsy, but taken with the testimony, it's enough for them to go through with the trial.
