@nik I write these reviews. My name and picture are on them as opposed to you who essentially posts as anon. It seems like I missed "everything of importance" on the show? Really? I do agree with your comment about Robb. He certainly put his own interests ahead of his family's and his people. There can be honor in war though. "Messy, unfair and bloody" does not make it dishonorable. There is honor in fighting for what you believe in. The difference with the Red Wedding was that the Stark's were brought there under false pretense. They were deceived and betrayed. That was not honorable. Soldiers marching into battle know what is on the line. Tywin is shrewd but I wouldn't go so far as to say he took the "moral high ground."
Thx @none, you're right on the warg typo, I went back and fixed. And it was "Jon" not Robb I meant to type with the wildings you're right. I posted the review at 2:42 AM so even after a couple careful read-throughs and spell checks a couple things were bound to escape my editing. Any thoughts on the episode? @annihilator I will let it be known there is interest in us following Halo. @boxyp I like your point about Edmure being a valuable hostage. I wonder if roslin was in on the plot. Her smile vanished when it came time for the bedding ceremony. Either that was just her dreading being carried off to bed or she knew what was coming.
@Emy, you're right we have not learned the name of Theon's torturer, my bad. I was looking at a list of actors on IMDB and he was there and his name was listed. So a bit premature on my part. Sorry. @jameschan, I hear what you are saying. I just assumed they were going to take the beans along with the frank based on how gnarly that knife looked.
@SK TY for the heads up on "brooch" I have fixed it.
@mia and @sean thx for the feedback. Very interesting and all makes a lot of sense. I too liked the Thoros/Melisandre scene. Her jaw just about hit the ground when she learned how many times Thoros had brought Beric back.
and @Jako'theshadows don't you dare tell me...Ha. TY for confirming my hunch, but I will happily wait to see it unfold on screen in time. Having read the books like you said, how is the show doing in terms of keeping your interest and entertaining you?
@anneu I absolutely agree. That was my feeling as well. Just to be clear it wasn't gay relationships I raised my eyebrow too it was how she assumed to know the habits of young boys. She knew the whole matter was distasteful to Tywin and used it well to rattle him. She is a great addition this season. She is accepting of Loras no matter who he shares his bed with, as family should be, where as Tywin just refuses to address the indescretions of his children. If he doesn't talk about it, then it is not true. Sort of like Baelish talking about the stories they all agree to tell over and over until they forget they are lies.
Anon TY for heads up. While there is no confusing the two, I do screw up the names from time to time. Tywin, Tyrion, Theon, too many T's. Thank you. @chrishughes def check out Hannibal. I have loved it so far.

I would have liked to see Arya have a little better showing when she drew her sword on Thoros. Her teacher taught her better I thought. Didn't expect her to go Indigo Motoya on him, but she was disarmed so easily it was a bit of a downer. I think my favorite scene was the archer from the Brotherhood loosing that arrow high into the sky above Arya's portly partner.
