Intriguing Quaithe Quote

10 posts in this topic

I just watched episode 5 again and Ser Jorah asks Quaithe who she is, to which she replies "no one". Perhaps I'm reading to much into this but does not this very response to that question have some significance? I will have to check if that is faithful to their conversation as per the book. Thoughts? Valar morghulis

Wouldn't a Faceless Man be the last person to hide behind a mask?

I wouldn't doubt it, as this episode has MANY hidden tidbits which are meant to be overlooked. Notice the pink cloaks in Harrenhal? Aren't Lannister men supposed to wear red ones? But there are pink cloaks in Harrenhal in the books. I need to watch it again because there were at least 3 other things like this that I saw in EP205 that I can't remember.

An obvious one is that Tywin knows it is Arya.

Really? Why? (Seriously, tell me, I've been conidering and reconsidering a thousand signs without coming to a reliable conclusion …

I want to see this scene again. I can't find it anywhere, even on Youtube.

In the series it seems that Tyrion knows Arya is trying to hide who she really is, BUT THERE IS NO WAY that Tywin would let a Stark just chill and not try to bargain for his son. In the books Arya only saw Tywin from afar. She was a cupbearer for Weese and Lorch.

In ACOK Tywin and Arya never interact..I thought she was Roose Bolton's cupbearer..but I could be wrong..I did recently watch this episode and my brother (who is watching the series for the first time) asked me if Quaithe was Melisandre? I had to tell him I have no clue, but it would certainly be interesting if that was the case... it is definitely an interesting theory that may be worth looking into...I do believe they have the same kind of magic and are both shadowbinders from Ashai so it seems like a possibility.

and yes a face changer would seemingly be the last person who would need a mask...but then again Arya has been hiding her own identity so the mask could be a metaphor for all face changers, perhaps?

Tywin knows Ayra is someone, that she is of at least upper middle class origin, he also suspects she may be a spy, but Tywin is very distracted, he is busy conducting a war, remember, so he does not get to the bottom of things. He does give her some false clues when leaving Harranhal, though.

The TV show's writing doesn't always play well with the books.
