"he also proved his worth on the battlefield, killing Maelys the Monstrous in single combat in the War of the Ninepenny Kings, ending the line of the Blackfyre pretenders after cutting a bloody swath through the Golden Company to get to him."

Exactly. It's pretty much the whole point of the overall story, it's in the name- the song of ice and fire. I don't see why they left that out, would've been like 30 seconds of screen time and it would've had fans (who haven't read the books) talking about it for years. Hope they mention it eventually, don't see how they can just toss it out like that.

But watching Tywin laying down the law and shutting all these smug characters up with his stone face is always entertaining. The scene with Jamie was nice too.

Stannis and Robb story arcs are boring as hell though, and Arya is barely any less annoying than Sansa. These Stark women just all need to die already.


Some patience on your part might just pay off.

Maybe bring in Balon Greyjoy to talk about how Theon hoed up with the Starks to round it off.

The Tywin/Queen of Thorns/Balon hour would be the best hour of tv this year.
Yes!!!

I missed the first 20 minutes yesterday. Does Tywin know all along that his daughter and son were getting it on? Or did Tyrion tell on her?

It was warranted, but dont you want to know the size of the army? We know Khaleesis is 8k, what about Robbs? knowing 1/3 left gives no clue to speculate. Just saying... that storyline has been frustrating.

ohh, i see what you are saying. Stark's army isn't as big as the Lannisters to begin with, if I remember correctly. His tactics were winning him battles though.

The biggest damn traitor in the camp is sitting comfy in a palace. It was not justified one bit.

How big are the armies of Westeros lords exactly? Lannisters? Robb? Wildlings? Tyrels?

We know Dany has 8k elite soldiers, would that be enough to take King's Landing and scare the rest to submission?

Because from the what I saw in Blackwater, dozen or so ships almost took over the crown until unknown amount of reinforcements came in. We learned that Lannisters/Tyrels joined forces but never specified how many they had under their command combined.

THe lannisters are 60 thousand and the Tyrells added like 20 to them...

Robb only has I think 22 and now lost a chunk of that.

Stannis/Renly had 100 but most of that was the Tyrells. I dont think they gave all they had t othe Lannisters. In fact im nearly sure they didnt because Mace(the lord of the Tyrells) has a whole army in the field in the books on top of what they gave the lannisters.

So no...Dannys 8 wont do much. I wont spoil anything ill just say...she has more work to do.
