[Spoiler] The Necklace

Recommended Posts

Hey Guy,


First post here and I wanted to post a screenshot of the necklace for discussion. In the books there was some discussion between the cake and necklace but I believe this has been cleared up with a nice bowtie for us this week, First we have Littlefinger stating he only recently had it made and then a shot of the necklace itself.

Yep. Although it was also noticeably (only if you look closely, so maybe not so noticeably) missing the stone at the wedding.

I missed it on the first view because I wasn't wearing my glasses, but Giver is right. Sansa wears the necklace to the wedding and Olenna fiddles about with gown and the stone to the far left disappears and just the setting is left hanging onto her dress.

That comment from LF completely shattered my theory that Olenna was the one who acquired the necklace/hairnet, by the way

Well

She still had to be in on it because she knew to use it.

I do wish the shot of the necklace before Petyr smashes a crystal was a bit clearer though. It was still easy to miss that a jewel was missing, especially if you're not looking for it.

Yeah, definetely. I just thought she purchased it herself with contacts in the Citadel or something

I felt bad for Sansa that she was fooled into wearing "cheap pearls" in the most important social event in Westeros.



To wear fake jewelry in your hairnet is ok and understandable, but a whole necklace? Sad, just sad.

Wouldn't that sort of defeat the whole purpose of involving Ser Dontos and Sansa?

Why needlessly complicate things? If Olenna could acquire the poison herself without any spies in KL noticing, it would make more sense to sew it into her own clothing or something before the wedding. The whole point of using Ser Dontos and Sansa was to get the poison from LF to Olenna without anything being traced back to the Tyrells.

I still never understood the need to remove the jewel from Sansa in the first place. Why go through all that? If LF wanted to conspire with Olenna why not just give her the poison before the wedding? The only answer I've ever come up with was that they wanted a fallback victim to frame (Sansa) in case the poison failed. Right?

IMHO so that the instrument of death for Joffery Lannister would come from Sansa Stark. It was Olenna's wedding, she paid for it, and she was serving justice, cold.

With so many spies in Kings Landing, it would probably be too dangerous for Olenna to acquire the poison herself or to be seen taking something directly from Little Finger or one of his employees.

I was hoping they'd make it explicitly clear and LF would point out a missing jewel in the necklace.


Maybe they'll just mention it later.

There is a scene in the promo for next week where LF tells Sansa she is a suspect or something, I think they'll mention the necklace then

Yes, I saw that, I think next episode is where Littlefinger explains to Sansa how it all went down.

I've always assumed that was the case - they wanted to be able to point at Sansa if things went wrong.

Yep. Sansa already had a tremendous amount of "Motive" for wanting to kill Joffery. The wedding feast provided the "Opportunity". So the missing piece would be "Means" which the Tyrells planted on her (the poison in the hairnet/necklace). So I agree that they went through that little subterfuge just in case they needed a patsy to take the fall - she was giftwrapped.
