  1. And if they didn't attack Littlefinger as he left the Vale, they have had the perfect opportunity to take over the Vale with the lords and army away from the Vale all this time.
  2. Because Littlefinger has officially declared for house Stark. Sansa said so to Arya when Bran gave her the dagger.
  3. I'm pretty sure Bran said that the maester made the wheelchair, not that he invented it. I don't have a problem with them having things in the south that aren't common in the north, and vice versa. It's actually logical that the harsher and poorer north has a less sophisticated culture and fewer creature comforts than the south.
  4. Thank you!
  5. 6 out of 10 for me. It wasn't terrible but there were too many stupid scenes, including: Dany burning the food wagons after making a point of not having any food to feed her army because Cersei had raped the Reach, everyone catching fire when Drogon blew fire on them except Bronn and the Dothraki and the awkward scene featuring Missandei and Jon and Davos. I liked the scenes at Winterfell. Ok, Arya being a match for Brienne was a stretch but it was fun and unlike most viewers, Bran didn't creep me out. At least we didn't see Euron's fleet sail up Blackwater Rush to save the day for the Lannisters LOL
  6. It could have been Bronn. It happened so quickly.
  7. And they showed that Dany was deliberately getting Drogon to target the wagon train. It wasn't fire that went astray.
  8. Really? I thought it was Dickon of the mile wide shoulders.
  9. Damn, I hoped he drowned (even though it was ridiculous that the water was so deep).
  10. I can't think of any believable ways to explain the return to CB on the north side of the wall.
  11. I'm not a historian but I doubt that a monarch would look favorably upon lords who backed someone that was in open rebellion against the crown. It doesn't just come down to whether the rebels received amnesty or not. I'm pretty sure those on the losing side and their children wouldn't prosper if they were known to have backed a traitor.
  12. All your examples actually support my admittedly very general comment, and that is, the ultimate power rests with the monarch. The monarch has the authority to offer amnesty. The monarch has the power to punish or forgive. The monarch has the ability to appoint you and your family members should you have ambitions to rise higher in the hierarchy. Therefore, it makes more sense to back the monarch not the lady who is nearing the end of her days, plans to threaten the stability of the region and entire country with her allegiances and has suffered debilitating losses when her entire immediate family was wiped out.
  13. I'm pretty sure that was only in the books.
  14. I find it mind boggling that people can't get their heads around the fact that it's worse to cross your monarch than it is to turn on your lord/lady who is out of favor with the monarch... Of course Tarly and the other Reach lords sided with Cersei. They would have been stupid not to.
  15. *round of applause* ;-)
