    Unfortunately in episode 3.10, Roose makes it quite clear that Walder Frey has complete control over Riverrun. But they could have just mentioned the Blackfish was missing and Edmure Tully and assorted river lords were Walder's prisoners at the Twins, explaining why the Riverlands weren't restive at the time? But it seems like out of sight out of mind, both with characters and regions of Westeros!

    Both of those suggestions are great - I find myself getting so far behind on those huge threads, and by the time I've caught up, there are already another ten pages. Guess we had a lot to rant about this season! :D

    Maybe he will warg into Olly. Can't wait to see more of that little guy next season! :rolleyes:

    Oh, right, I forgot about that flashback that everyone insisted would pay off later on in the season. Like so many other things, it did not pay off (and I still think it's bizarre that this was the one flashback that had to be filmed - though of course, it's a Lannisters' flashback and we all know they are the most important of all the characters on the show so I guess it does make sense :P)

    Wow, there are so many bizarre narrative choices in this episode and this season, but let me just mention that ... basically Doran had no plan beyond exactly what he said, and there's no vengeance, justice, fire or blood? And it was necessary to include Dorne in this season for what reason exactly? So Bronn and his sidekick would have a place to go? I mean, seriously, for all those scenes did, Myrcella could have died of a snakebite or TB or whathaveyou offscreen without any of the necessity of filming in the Alcazar or casting Sand Snakes and Doran. There wasn't any need to send Jaime there (other than to show - yet again - what a total flop he is at everything he turns his hand to, particularly protecting his children from harm. His track record with dead kids rivals Mel's with leeches - two out of three are sure to be goners!) I also want to come back to how they cast Lollys Stokeworth and CGI'd a castle for ONE SCENE so Bronn could say "Jaime Fucking Lannister ..." because that's a pretty weird use of their budget. We couldn't cast a single Northern lord for any reason, but ... that had to happen????

    Hmm, it's a good thing Dany has Tyrion to show her her path, goodness how she ever accomplished anything without him! (So that's why they killed Barristan, huh?)

    jlp5y, I'm genuinely not being snarky or anything but you have read Dance right? Because Brienne isn't dead - she's come for Jaime and he leaves Pennytree with her. (Unless you subscribe to the theory that Lady Stoneheart turned her into a zombie or something but I'm going with the Occam's Razor explanation that Brienne agreed to bring Jaime to LS so the BwB doesn't kill Pod (and Hyle Hunt, I guess.) so Brienne is very much alive at this juncture in the books. I have a feeling Brienne's non-involvement with Sansa at the moment may have more to do with Gwendoline Christie being in Star Wars.

    Well, it's hard to blame Sansa for not trusting a Lannister no matter how nice he might be to her personally. He still comes from the family that had her father beheaded and orchestrated the murders of her brother and mother and held her prisoner before forcing her into marriage. Not saying your saying this Philpenn, but there are people cheering the idea that Sansa will be part of murdering Fat Walda and her unborn child as revenge against the Boltons/Freys who also think Sansa was foolish not to trust Tyrion - but doesn't the same logic apply to him? He was innocent of the Lannisters' crimes against her family just as Walda is innocent of the Freys' and Boltons' crimes against her family. So I would also find it a horrible development to see Sansa do anything to harm Walda.

    Cersei needed Bob dead before Ned had the chance to spill the incest beans: she hated Robert for most of their marriage (at least in the books though perhaps not so much on the show) but it was Ned's ultimatum to leave Westeros with her children or he would tell Robert that the kids were Jaime's that sealed Robert's fate.
