    Who were the Tyrells involved in the Purple Wedding?

    I completely forget about Alerie Hightower! Of course, she must have been on it too, since she tried to pass it off as Joff choking on his pie. As to Butterbumps being the culprit, this line from The Princess and the Queen might be a hint of sorts in that direction:
  2. I'd say, yes. Its true that Stannis doesn't have a great introduction. In ACOK when we first meet him he looks harsh, demanding, entitled, and a religious fanatic to boot. But GRRM later subverts all of this when he makes Stannis the one to answer the call of the Night's Watch, and in doing so becoming "a righteous man". We see Stannis through the eyes of the Davos, who worships him and sees everything he does through rose colored glasses. I believe Davos is meant as a lens for us to show why Stannis does the things he does (some of which might seem morally wrong to us), and to lend some sympathy to the character. (Also I find it hard to buy that GRRM doesn't mean for us to like/dislike some characters: We are obviously meant to like the Starks, and dislike such characters as Cersei or Renly).

    Joffrey had already drank the wine when Margaery tried to pull him away. Its said nowhere that the strangler needs a lot of time to activate. Cressen immediately hands the drink to Melisandre after poisoning it. The poisons works very fast so it's not as if Margaery would be standing around idle for any long period of time. Margaery was probably banking on him dropping dead immediately. Even if Joff told her to drink Margaery simply says "No u first, my king" very simple :-) And I wasn't throwing a tantrum, I just didn't want this thread to be sucked into the black hole of "It was the wine" "No, it was the pie" series of postings.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    I have a question, does anyone have any idea where I can find the first drafts of the story/what changes GRRM made from the first drafts of the story?

    Hey how likely is it that the Kettleblacks did it???? (Not likely at all but this seems like a fun discussion). They were Littlefinger's men and were present at the wedding.

    This is why I believe it wasn't Marg that did it, because everyone's eyes would be on her the entire time.

    Marg could have been given special signals to know when the wine is poisoned. Or even a special antidote to protect her from the effects of the strangler. And I don't buy that the strangler would dissolve in "pie filling" or whatever. It would be viscous and thick and there's a reason the prologue shows the strangler dissolving in wine.

    True. But I think Mace is too much of a bumbling idiot to fake things to such a level.

    For the last time :

    Yeah agreed, it makes no sense. We already saw that the strangler dissolves in wine. How exactly would Joffrey not notice a giant shard in the middle of his slice of pie? And how exactly would Marg/Olenna/Garlan/anyone else put it in there? By shoving it in? That's awkward.
