i'm not even that curious which of them it is, more than who directly at the celebration, was involved. i sort of expect one of them two to be behind it ultimately.

Gotcha. I've read the books so I just wanted some perspective from someone who hasn't read the books to see their line of thinking.

Who are you that is so wise in the ways of logic?


I'd hate to admit it but Godzuki is right in that Littlefinger and Varys seem to be behind just about everything that happens regarding the Iron Throne.

George R.R. Martin wrote this episode because he wanted all the hints that were in the books to be seen in this episode.

Gotta pay attention to the body language of all the people before and after the poisoning.

Exactly which is why I questioned anyone who would think LF was involved. That light bulb went off in your head yet?

I have read the book. I will not spoil anything though.

However, some people have a good case to point fingers at LF.

- He is a cunning son of a bitch
- He has been absent for too long
- He wants the world to himself

But MOST importantly, I will remind you two scenes.

1: Varys and Olenna talking in season 3 and plotting to marry Sansa to Ser Loras

Here Varys is quoted saying : "Littlefinger would see this world burn if he could be king of the ashes.

2: Littlefinger and Varys in the Throne Room

Varys : " But, what do we have if we abandon the lie? Chaos!A pit for all of us to drown in ( don't remember the exact words of the last sentence)"
Littlefinger : " Chaos is not a pit, chaos is a ladder!

So, I can perfectly understand while LF is suspected of involvement in poisoning Joffrey.

I wonder what will happen to King Joff's new sword now that he won't get to cut someone's head off with it.

Would they bury him with it? Will Tywin take it back?

I really can't wait to see more of Red Viper. I want to see him fight someone. I'm hoping it aint at the end of the season.

Just to make sure you guys would say the body language, acting, and every reading-into-the-scenes possible i can do by rewatching it is accurate to the truth? basically its all there if i look hard enough at this episode?

Most definitely. Watch it in 0.9 speed if you have to

Just don't say anything once you've found it.
