I watched that shit for three hours straight and I would've bet my life that Daenerys Targaryen was Piper Perabo. I mean, I knew it.



And I was so utterly wrong.

They haven't done anything yet, but they talk about the wolves a lot in the books, and I'm pretty certain they're going to become a big deal down the road. They talk about Jon Snow's all the time, Ghost, about how he keeps him in the stables at Castle Black, which seems like a pretty nice perk considering what a bunch of hard ass ball busters they are up there, and I don't even think they've shown him in the show.

Last episode and episode 5 were the best. Littlefinger is probably my favorite character.

the good thing is that wolf they killed was the red headed sisters wolf, and she basically lied anyways to cover for the prince.

I was going to mention the wolves thing and how little they'd been featured in the past few episodes

Seems like there's so much material they can use still and this season's almost over. If they end this season well, and I have no doubts that they will, it's going to be a brutal wait for the next season

Yeah, last we saw of her she still smitten over Joffrey. She didn't want somenoe smart and caring, she wanted him. I don't know this or not, but I know that the wolves were for the Stark Children, and if she deserts her family for a Lannister, a full blooded Lannister at that, then is she really a Stark anymore? She shouldn't even have direwolf, the sigil of her family.

I am a little up in the air on Littlefinger's motives. He pushed Ned to find out the truth about Joffrey. He pushed him almost exclusively. What was his motivation for pushing him? He's not loyal to the Targaryens, as evidenced by his questioning The Spider's loyalty when he discovered he's pro-Targeryan. Littlefinger also hasn't shown any particular loyalty toward the Lannisters, in fact his pushing Ned to discover the truth about Joffrey I'd read as almost expressly Anti-Lannister. And we know he has no love lost for the Starks. We know he loves Catelyn Tulley-Stark. But what does instigating this war between the Starks and Lannisters get him? The only thing I can think is that he'd hope for Ned's demise, but now he's exposed himself against Ned at the end of the last episode. That's not gonna help him win over Cate unless he kills Ned and plays it off as one of The Lannister's doing it. And even then, I still don't see why he'd help him resolve the Joffrey situation. Unless it's to try to impress Catelyn by aiding in the answer about her sister's husband?

I don't know. He's a little off to me.

The reason behind the wolves not being as dominant as they are in the books is that the specific dogs they are using as wolf cubs are very hard to train. In season 2 they are gonna be all CGI since direwolves are supposed to be monstrously big.

I was actually of the opinion it may have been an effort to keep costs down with the CGI.

I love that character. Him and the fat bald man in the king's counsel.

There's a lot at stake for him. Surely informing the Lannisters about Ned's scheme would get him on their good side now that the blond kid is king. Don't forget that he knew their secret, thus he has a huge advantage that he can use. If Robert's brother becomes king, there's nothing in it for him. Remember his conversation with Ned just beforehand? He tried to include Ned in his plan but failed so he decided to do it himself. At least that's what I get. I don't read the book tho so I might be wrong.

Yeah, that conversation with Robert's youngest brother. He's the gay one who's with the Knight Loras.

The next King will be Robert's other brother, who we haven't met yet, but whom I have a lot of hopes for. I'm hoping he's like a young Robert, ready to crush people with a war hammer.

No I meant Ned and Littlefinger's convo. Littlefinger tried to convince Ned to make the blond kid king despite him not a true heir.

Probably to make peace, so he could be removed by the Lannisters more easily and with less chance of a fight.. Either way (in reference to littlefinger) He was gonna send Ned down a path that led to the same destination. That's my guess
