It sort of goes along with everyone thinking Arya is a boy. Modern sensibilities say that it's no big deal to see someone's wife far away from home or a girl to run around in pants and be dirty like that. But think about even the united states not that long ago. If a man saw someone wearing pants from behind he'd probably assume it was a man. Sort of like how Hank Hill thinks only women should have long hair or whatever.

It was a rash move to take Tyrion for sure, but she was in genuine danger based on the information she had. You saw how the barmaid almost crapped her pants and tried to curtsy when she found out Lady Stark was in her joint. (She even says the last time she was there she was still just a Tully.) It's a huge deal, and word is going to spread in general not to mention Tyrion the head conspirator now knowing she's sneaking around.

If she takes Tyrion she figures 1. slows word getting back (in the book I think she actually tells everyone in the inn not to spread word) 2. she now has her prime suspect already in custody and 3. she now has a hostage to keep the Lannisters from trying to kill anyone important to her.

Someone tried to already kill her crippled son and she's pretty sure it was Tryion Lannister. From her perspective the shit has already gone down and the Lannisters have made their move so she's making her move. From our perspective it seems bad because it seems like everyone could have just left the inn happy and none of this would have started.

I love how every good line from the novel is brought out in the episodes.. Thats the reason why Tyron is such a great hilarious character. All his best material is displayed without much of the extra dialog found in the book. Despite the 'cliff-note' translation from book to show, it still hits all the major points and fully reveals all the needed characterization. Even when they change things, it all remains in accordance with the overall essence of the Ice and Fire story.

Great episode.

I'm plugging away through the book(s). I'm somewhere in the 150 page range of the first book, which means I'm right about where the show is at the moment, at least on a lot of the story archs. I find the reading goes pretty well having a face to associate with most characters.

I'm surprised at how close to the books the story has been so far. Except for a few minor changes, it's been pretty true. Some things have been watered down, like the relationship with the wolves, particularly Jon Snow's, but for me there's been enough there to introduce them when the need arrives.

I'm still a little surprised I was able to flat out pick up on that big twist a month ago after like episode two. It was much easier to notice visually than in the books I think.

Shit is definitely starting to hit the fan. I did not sign onto HBO go to check out next weeks episode. Not yet anyway.
Good layout by the way for that gimmick, because with this coming weekend being a long one, Sunday night may not be as TV centric as it often is.

Anyone know what's up with PirateBay? Haven't been able to access them now for a few days. Thus, No Game of Thrones for me.
