(book spoilers) Lame Lothar

Recommended Posts

I noticed that during the scene between the visiting Freys, and the Starks/Tullys, when the Freys leaves one of them has a visible limp as he walks...was this a nod to Lame Lothar from the books? My memory's hazy but didnt he have a limp?

Has it been confirmed if those too are actually supposed to bé Lothar and Walder Rivers? Or was it just a nod to book fans and theyre just random un-named freys?

He also seemed in character. Very polite and careful not to give offence and unlike the blunt replies from the guy next to him (cousin, brother?)

Enjoyed this episode.

He gave me the creeps. big time.

Exactly. Too creepy. I pictured Lothar as clever enough to hide his game masterfully. In that scene there is so much shade being thrown that even Rickon would see what a backstabbing bitch Lame Lothar is.

You guys get creeped out too easily. He seemed perfectly fine to me, although a bit solemn. Black Walder was the only one that made me feel uneasy.

Is that you Lame Lothar?

Both castings have been confirmed to be Black Walder and Lame Lothar. And I think the limp was definitely a nod to book readers.

Nod? What nod? The actor plays Lame Lothar, Lame Lothar has a limp! Where's the nod? It's like saying Melisandre's red hair is a nod to book readers!

Well, they could have easily left it out. IIRC, Dagmer Cleftjaw didn't have a cleft in his upper lip in the show, so his name was pretty stupid. He could simply have been Lothar Frey, and it wouldn't have changed anything

I actually really liked the way Black Walder and Lame Lothar were portrayed in this scene. And those little hats were oddly Frey-ish.

They didn't actually call him Cleftjaw in the show though. I think.

I thought they were perfect. I like what wardrobe does with the costuming to differentiate between houses. Freys having hats like that suits them.
