I just read a Tyrion chapter but I think I misread something. Looking for some help here. Did Cersei grab the wrong girl thinking it was Shae she had kidnapped?

She thought Alayaya (?) was the woman he was visiting (and technically it was at 1st glance).

yeah. cersei thought she figured out who tyrion's mistress was, but it was the wrong girl. remember, he would go visit the whorehouse, ask for one specific girl, then take the secret passageway to duck out and see Shae.


so cersei has no real hold on tyrion at all.

Who can give me a short, spoiler-free, synopsis, that will encourage me to download and watch the first season of Game of Thrones??

My current summer TV lineup consists of: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Breaking Bad, Weeds, Louie, Wilfred, Chopped, and Next Food Network Star.

Go.

I sort of overdid it at the book store. I got Bill James' Popular Crime, a look at crime, and really the true crime genre, from a statistical perspective, from the Baseball Prospectus guy. One of the strangest side projects I can think of, but I'm a huge true crime guy and a bit of a stat geek besides.

Then I impulse bought The Red Market, a true crime book about the organ harvesting market. Another True Crime novel called Clueless in Connecticut about three seemingly unrelated vanished college girls in the 40s in towns surrounding where I live, all of whom disappeared while hitchhiking, yet were never connected. Then Deadline, a short paperback zombie novel. And Anno Dracula, about Queen Victoria in 1888 marrying Count Dracula, who then proceeds to feed on whitechapel, and then hunt for Jack the Ripper, which sounds rediculous yet entertaining.

Go.

The mysterious death of the Hand of the King (the Kings right Hand Man) leaves King Robert to choose a new man to fill the vacant spot. When the King chooses a very honorable Ned Stark to fill the spot, Ned begins to look into the suspicious murder of the Former Hand who was a dear friend. What he finds is deep, dark and twisted and exposes the true corruption of all of those trying to take power in the 7 kings.

I'll write more later but I've got to go. Theres a shitload more story lines I could write about. That's just Neds.

short story prequels starring dunk and egg. dunk is a hedge knight who ends up being the lord commander of the king's guard (duncan the tall) and egg is a targaryan prince who ends up as the unlikely king since the heirs ahead of him died or abdicated (aegon, maestre aemon's younger brother) .

they both died due to the tragedy at summerhall.
it takes place a few generations before the current stories.
