Not a nitpick. It was a badass scene, but cheapens his character a little bit.

*note to self*

Self? Dont ever question those who actually read the books. Just stfu and enjoy the tv series and miss out on a more in depth story within the books. Poof be gone.





How many books are there? And are they ongoing as we speak?

Last season they tried to present a more sympathetic and savvy Cersei than the books so she would not look like an evil bitch from a fairy tale, now they are making her look like an idiotic child with no vision. Cersei is a fairy tale bitch who is immature and selfish and is prone to make idiotic mistakes but fact of the matter is that she is also a smart tactician. She never misses an opportunity and is good at making opportunities out of threats which is the good thing about ASOIAF as the characters are flawed just like everyone while possessing unique and strong suits of their own.

Cersei is tracking down all the bastards of Robert to tie any loose ends that could be used to prove her children are not Robert's. In the books they don't go around killin kids and infant though, they just search for them and it is not clear what they do to them.

Cersei is getting rid of all of Robert's bastards, except Gendry who is heading for the Wall with Arya.

But one of them was a newborn baby. Has the Kings death been atleast 9 months? I dont know the time period. Maybe it was possible he knocked up someone before he died. Thats the only thing that threw me off. I can understand the kids that may have been a result of the Kings peter. Thats one of the reasons that dude with the crazy helmet is being sought after.

She's also feircely loyal to her children. Spoilers up to book 4:

Which is why I'm surprised they are planting the seed of her doubt of Joffrey so early in the season. I'm definitely down with it but I don't think she started to realize Joffreys insanity until closer to his death scene.

Anyway, definitely glad the show is back on the air. After I saw the first season I read all of the books.

I'm a little lost with the northeners. The sicko f*cko who bones his daughters made mention how the North is banding together to make a push down South. Which means war. I get that. What I dont get is who makes up the North and will we see much of them this season? My guess is those weird things (guys going around decapitating people) are one group, the rest are pretty much outlaws from the South. People that want to be free, rebellious and not under any rules. Oukasts. Am I right? Just uncertain what kind of structure they have to know who is the leader and so forth. Is this just a collection of flunkies that are large in number vs the South?

He has lots of bastards of varying ages. One being an infant isn't unlikely for his amount of whoring around.

Yes, there are people from south of the wall (and some from the wall itself (oath breakers)) called wildlings. Asha, the chick hanging with Bran is one of them that is escaping south. Mance Rayder, a former Nights Watch is gathering up all the wildlings (no small feat) to attack the wall to get away from the others/wights and winter in general.

So we havent met this guy yet.

I was confusing him with the guy who went missing. Think he was Snow's uncle.

2 reasons.

1. the babies are a threat to joffrey's claim to the throne since they are robert's bastards. and

2. the babies all look like robert (dark hair) joffrey doesn't. the babies are further evidence that joffrey isn't robert's son.
