Game of Thrones


Catelyn, you are a maroon! As is Ned, in some ways. WHY on earth did you act on your suspicion of Tyrion so decisively instead of waiting and watching, Lady Stark?

Did neither of you think of maybe biding your time a bit and so not endanger your entire family's lives?! Ned should clearly not have resigned as King's Hand so abruptly and/or, have gotten out of there much more quickly. (Petyr, pimp daddy, can you be trusted, truly?)

I had hopes that Catelyn and Tyrion might have reached an accord in their battle with ... who were those guys anyway? Random locals? And then she seemed likely to side with Tyrion over her cuckoo sister. (I wonder, was that a prop boob? Ewwww!)

Tyrion remains one of my favorites, because he's smart, witty and hey, handy with a shield.

Ned, Ned, Ned. Take a lesson from Maximus and don't be so goddamn noble if you've got a family, 'k? What harm would it do to play along for a bit and then make your move? I guess it's just not in him. And of course I don't want Daenerys killed. If they could only get on the same page and realize she has no intention of starting a war! I want to like Jorah but...

Also, RIP black horse. :-/ Was it already injured? I'm not going to rewatch that scene, but was The Hound just putting it out of its misery or butchering it out of frustration?

Oh no, the horse wasn't injured. The Mountain (it was the Mountain, Gregor Clegane, not the Hound who is his brother Sandor Clegane and the one that kept him from killing Loras) is a fucking psychopath.

Okay, good (or rather, disturbing) to know!

I am having the toughest time keeping track of new characters. Like when Loras was telling his BF he should be king and dismissing everyone else in line, I only knew who Joffrey was! (And yes, don't know Loras's lovers' name either, alas.)

Aha, this explains it: Stannis hasn't even been seen yet! And okay, now I've got Renly's name down.

LOL I totally understand--there are a LOT of characters in this series. Like, even when you have a book in your hand, and you can flip to the family trees in the back and whatnot, it can be hard to keep up (lots of them have similar sounding names, too!).

I'm getting more of a handle on it, but yeah, lots and lots of names and complicated relationships!

yeah, the guys who attacked Catelyn and co are random thieves who patrol that road to steal and kill

No one ever said the Starks were very smart... honorable, yes, but smart? not so much. As weird as it may sound, Sansa is probably the smartest of them all.

Gregor the Mountain was just pissed he got beat by Loras. Heck, he burned his brother the Hound when he was 6 or so just because he touched his toys, so...

As I was just saying above, I'm so not clear on who's who. I need to consult a primer! Like, not sure which one is Sansa... the one banging the prostitute?

I can't imagine killing your own horse, but then I'm not a medieval psychopath.

Your icon ftw!

ETA: I looked up some of the cast. Ahh, so Sansa is the drippy eldest daughter! Yeah, that does seem odd at this point to call her the smartest. She must really develop later on. So far, MEH!
