(No spoilers) Tywin's letter

Recommended Posts

Having seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsTVnZm9hFg

... of which I'm not a believer, but I still think it's interesting, I'm keeping an eye out for Talisa or anything related.

Anyway, Tywin was writing a word when the camera zoomed in on him and it just caught my eye. Did that word look like 'Talisa' to you? It kind of did to me.

Not that I have experience of espionage but I don't think Tywin would write the name of the spy in a letter. He'd probably find some code way of referring to her.

Talissa does remind me a little of Jules in One Tree Hill back in the old days. I wonder if there is a trope name for that thing where a girl is paid to make her employer's enemy fall for them but then part way through the process falls in love with them?

Agreed. I too pay attention when I see him writing letters, but there is no way he used her name

I really hope she is a spy though, would be a nice twist and I'd never seriously considered it but that video makes a decent case

I think it was letters to the Lords Bolton and Frey. That's what I'd prefer anyway.

Loved the dripping red wax too. Blood-like connotations for a later episode??

As he tells Tyrion in the books, some wars are won with words. Or letters. Whichever he said.

Talisa is a spy. I'm certain!

I'm not sure how much of this is spoilers so I'm putting the whole thing in a tag

Okay that accent stuff and her saying she does "not understand" Westerosi customs but clearly she does are pretty convincing. The writers are not so clueless as to leave that out, but it's not something most viewers would pick up on.

I don't want her to be a spy. I think that'd be stupid. Roose is the only one in Robb's trust who needs to work against him. Two would be too many. Still, one begs the question as to how a nurse from Volantis found her way to Robb Stark's side of the war...

Do you understand the concept of a (No Spoilers) thread?

Ugh, it seems multiple people on this forum do not. Are tags so hard??

Can you imagine her being the one

Stabbing Robb Stark in the heart instead of Roose Bolton? and in the process sorrowfully crying for doing so?

*Reason for edit: trying to get the spoiler thingy to work.
