Well, I just joined, but I can't get the bloody profile picture thingy to accept my pic no matter how I alter it.... but, oh well..... Anyway, onto the situation at hand: - Arya's derisive laughter. To me, it looked like she was laughing at the situation, but more-so at the Hound. Everywhere he has tried to dump her off, there has been some setback of some sort. Also, about Arya, one thing I noticed is how much like Jaquen she is going to be in the future, When the Red Woman (Melisandre) faced her a while back, the witch actually looked frightened. Perhaps that was a foreshadowing? Perhaps one of those sets of eyes that Arya closes will be Melisandre's herself. Perhaps she saw her own future? - Tyrion's long story about the beetles seemed to set up the brutality of the Mountain. That's how I read into it. - Lena, Lena, Lena...... I saw her on Craig Ferguson's talk show. She is an absolute clown! I mean that in a good way. Every other actor I have seen mention her only have good things to say about her. What certainly shows the caliber of her acting ability is how many times I have wanted to throw her out of a high window in King's Landing, especially this past episode. That smug smirk she leveled at Tyrion got my blood boiling so much that I had to sit down and listen to some quiet music for a little while after the episode ended. Hats off to Lena! She finally learned how to drink the glasses of wine she pours! "Drinky, no drinky!!" About Cersei though, I think she got off light for all the death, torture, pain, and destruction she has caused. Being paraded naked through the streets of King;s Landing?? Really?? She wanted Tyrion's head off!! I have read the book series twice and am going through ADWD for the third time. I can't wait to see Tyrion's boat trip put on film. And I honestly hope they work Penny in. Her character is a very important turning point for Tyrion. She's too pivotal to leave out. But, then, I also thought the same thing about Osmund Kettleback. So, is Tyrion only going to spill the beans about Lancel? We shall see in a couple weeks, I guess!
