So I was watching excerpts from the final scene from here:

http://www.aoltv.com...pisode-9-recap/

And I noticed that as the sword is coming down (at the 0:55 mark), you see Ned's lips move. Anyone know if he's trying to say something intelligible? Or is he just licking his lips?

I think he's just praying. I don't think it's meant to be understood by anybody, but it's speech and not just licking his lips. It nicely mirrors Will's prayers in episode 1, though we heard more of those than we did of Ned's.

It would take more then a lip reader to work out what he's saying look at his position you can barely see his face

"I, Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell, Warden of the North, Hand of the King, say only one thing to Death: 'Not to' ---" *snick*

He could have survived if he followed Robert's example of using "Titles... Titles..."

How is a thread titled "Ned's Last Words" a no spoilers thread? Or does it not count if the episode already aired.

As per the rules, an episode aired on the main channel (e.g. not a week ahead on HBOGO) is fair game for commentary without spoiler tags/notification. So, it doesn't need to be marked as [TV Spoilers], unless it were to spoil a future episode.

Still, better to err in this direction, than the other...

He was either saying:

"Oops I guess I shouldnt have waited to tell Jon his mother is actually-" *shhhlupp!*

Or

"my only regret is that I never got to do Roz doggy sty-" *shhhwicck*

Or

"This is the tale, of captain Jack Sparrow-" *shhhliticky splat*

"So strange we should suffer so much over such a little prick--" *shhink!"

I love him to bits, but I swear the man have it in his contract that he's required to die in damn near everything he's in, /rolleyes2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />
I remember cheering when I saw he was Odysseus in Troy because I knew he'd live for a change.

I'm told that he was starting a prayer, basically. Nothing really meant to be understood.

He was actually saying 'the scene in the book wasn't this powerful, score one for visualization!'.
