Tywin and Arya trading witty remarks is the most hilarious deviation yet

For all the Sansa haters out there, she gets better imo.
Sansa is a dumb little bitch.

well at least Sansa isn't all obsessed with joffrey anymore, and she seems to slowly be turning more against him. that in itself makes her less annoying. i used to hate her, especially when she didn't stick up for Arya accusing Joffrey

yes, this has been the best change of the season. he was a real ass in the books, this fleshes him out much more and almost makes him likable. it kinda bugs me that he hasn't dug more into who arya really is though. i could understand if he thought she was a simple lowborn girl, but he has obviously noticed that there is much more to her then she appears. a man like Tywin would not just leave that alone without investigating her.

a lowly girl wouldn't speak correctly. she would say m'lord...kinda a lazy way to speak. a high born girl would be taught to speak correctly and say my lord.


m'lord is like westeros ebonics

if that is roose however, then they should have showed the scene where he gives theon the wolfshead pins.

she starts off as an annoying spoiled brat, but as events unfold around her she becomes more jaded and stronger in her own way. she basically grows up and stops acting like a petulant child.

I think Tywin just treats it as a game for now. Tywin clearly recognised that Arya was hiding something when she first worked for him, but I think he viewed it more as a interesting side project to figure out who Arya really is. He doesn't think Arya might be a Stark because, well, what are the odds! But that's probably why he hasn't bothered to really investigate Arya, because he sees the verbal banter as a break from the soldiers and the war.

Does anyone who read the books know if Arya's Direwolf makes an appearance anytime in the future? Like even if not Season 2 of the TV Show

If thats a spoiler, no need to answer, don't wanna jade it for the other folks.

It sucks that there's only Robb's, Jon's and Bran's left right now, those things are awesome. Robb's looks the biggest, but I don't think I've seen Jon's in perspective yet. Robb actually rides his (according to the tales being told in the North), so that ****er must be huge, and the first scene when its intimidating Jaime it looked monstrous, and bad ass!!
