Padraig Posted January 13, 2011 Share Posted January 13, 2011 But that's not my real beef. My real beef is the contrast they seem to be drawing between Ned leaving for honor and Cat asking him to stay for love, and I think that's a one-sided and stereotypical view of her character. Initially she's the one seeing the potential for honor and political ambition in the Hand position, and Ned's the one who just wants to stay home. I hope we get to see some of that. I think you and Lady Blackfish are right that it would be nice to see Catelyn changing her mind after Bran's fall. OTOH, while I understand why you raise the question, my overall impression is that since we really haven't seen enough to know what actually happens, you could easily have no beef here.My point is Catelyn wasn't weepy about it. That's impossible to say for sure. Catelyn does cry. At Bran's bedside she breaks down when the direwolves start howling. That breadown is a lot worse than the tears she spills when she talks to Ned. Whether she cries or not, it shouldn't change your perception of Catelyn since we all agree that it was a very exceptional time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
