  1. Cersei and LF are the cautionary tale...
  2. Yeah, it's all quite contrived. Jon just lets him go free, to cause more trouble. Jon knows ("You told me Lord Baelish sold you to the Boltons"). She also told him LF couldn't be trusted ("Only a fool would trust Littlefinger. I should have told you about him.") Brienne knows (she was there at the inn when he was taking her there, and after). Bronze Yohn knows, too ("Last time I saw you, Baelish, you told me you were taking Sansa Stark home with you to the Fingers. Do you take me for a fool?") LF needed Robin's permission to send the troops, and Robin sent the troops for her ("She's my cousin. We should help her.") The troops belong to Robin, not LF, all Sansa has to do is tell Robin the truth. Sansa also knows LF framed her for the murder of Joffrey, so the price on her head really should be on LF's head ("You don't want the queen to hear, do you? Gold cloaks are searching for you. And if they found you, how do you think they would punish the girl who murdered the king?"... "I didn't murder anyone."... "I know. I know. But you must admit it looks suspicious.") And LF told her how he did it ("Do you remember that lovely necklace Dontos gave you? I don't suppose you noticed that a stone was missing after the feast. The poison."... "If they catch you, they'll put your head on a spike just like my father's.") (added all the quotes from the show...)
  3. Exactly. (There are a bunch of quotes from the books, but he is very clear.)
  4. Agreed. Drogo doesn't know he is hurting Dany. Ramsay knows he is hurting Sansa. These are very different stories. Also with Dany and Drogo, there's a love story the author is telling, and it begins well before the wedding night. As the author explains, there's a lot going on between them in the scenes leading up to the wedding night scene (a scene that he describes as consensual, sexy and romantic). Lots of symbolism... On the wedding night, Drogo places Dany up on a rock so they are on the same level, that's about equality. She watches him, then reaches out to take off his bells, to undress him, signaling her desire. There's quite a lot going on there, and he is a big part of it, this is about realizing her potential... And then she develops painful saddle sores. She is having a hard time getting used to riding, she is resisting her inner dragon (the conflict with Viserys). She has the dragon dreams, and when she embraces the dragon (her true self) she let the silver teach her how to ride, and then she rides Drogo like she rode her silver... And then she rides Drogon. From Drogo comes Drogon....
  5. Dany later looks back on that night and thinks she was afraid, but excited. GRRM talks about it here: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/21681757
  6. Well, he doesn't have to lie about bad things. He could be hiding his feelings.
  7. [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    Also I wonder if Tarth plays in. There was this moment...
  8. Yeah, that was nice. What matters is the story. Also, that scene (clip above), Catelyn says Bran looks at his feet when he is lying. Now I want to see if he does that in any scenes with Meera...
  9. [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    Hopefully something happens to draw them together. In his dream, she defended him, so maybe that happens.
  10. [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    They lost their way, they both need a declaration of independence, to live their own lives.
  11. [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    If he fights for Cersei, after all that, just no... Like NCW said, what will it take, if this doesn't do it? http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/28/arts/television/game-of-thrones-season-6-finale-jaime-lannister-interview.html?_r=0
