Right? Looks like the show is replacing Edric Storm with Gendry, going to be interesting to see how that plays out.

Joffrey killing the whore didn't make sense to me either. We get that he's a sick, twisted little fvcker, we're to assume Littlefinger just gave Ros to him to kill? Littlefinger is one cold douchebag.

Loved the shots of the Wall and the view from above. Looks beautiful in crisp HD.

You may be right. I know its after the royal wedding because he had already talked to Sansa about...all that. But its before Lysas...situation.

Its so different I cant say what they are doing. But im looking forward to that whole scene. The ending of that episode(it wont be a season finale...just the end of an episode im sure) will be satisfying.

And Joffrey killing Ros makes sense to me. Littlefinger said in season 1 he has lords who pay for crazy shit. One liked to **** dead women. ros might be sold again....

Joffrey already had her beat the other whore. Littlefinger needed to get rid of her. Joffrey is a 16 year old boy just starting to get into women...even though he gets off on pain and killing. Margery probably has him going in circles....wanting to ****/kill everything alive the way shes playing into his madness.

Shes waaaaay better than I expected. The books made her clever but...not this clever. Shes pretty much running him.

Olenna vs. Tywin
Varys vs. Littlefinger

Nice episode and I want to see how this thing with Gendry plays out. They changed many things from the books.

I understand about the kingsguard, I remember the whole thing with Jaime, but I was under the impression that you had to volunteer for it. Moreover you would think a powerful family like the Tyrells who control one of the 7 kingdoms could resist.

Also Sansa is believed to be heir to the North, so she is an extremely valuable commodity.

EDIT: has it been established that the Reach (Controlled by the Tyrells) is the most agriculturally fertile region of Westeros and allows the Tyrells to be one of the richer houses and field the largest armies? Were the Lannisters somewhat dependent on their alliance?

Stannis would have taken Kings Landing if the Tyrells didn't help out.
