Oww. Being thrown on the boat must have hurt. Especially with its uneven surface.

I can’t stop thinking how much it would hurt to be thrown on a boat, with the amount of force Ser Jorah used, like Tyrion was an inanimate sack of potatoes!

Oh dear Jaime, even you’ve turned on Tyrion? :S

This Mace Tyrell is such a foolish keeper of his money that I wonder how the Tyrells are as rich as they are. Then again, I wonder why Cersei didn’t just take up his freely given offer, and decided to send him away with Ser Meryn. It’s not like he has any influence on the small council. Except maybe being a nuisance at her side.

Smart tactic of Cersei’s in letting the Sparrows handle Ser Loras Tyrell, and indirectly Margaery! She knows Tommen is too kindhearted to resort to violence when dealing with the Faith Militant. If it were Joffrey, they would all have been slaughtered yesterday.

That’s nice of Melisandre to stick up for Stannis’ daughter. I shudder to think of how the girl could have been burnt at the pyre too if she detested her like her mother.

Watching Melisandre seduce Jon was strangely hot, especially when she opened her eyes wide and said “Then we mustn’t tell him”, him being Stannis. But what was even hotter was Jon resisting her because he still loves Ygritte. :’) Go Jon!

Awww, Shireen needed to hear how much her father loves her. :’) And so did we as viewers, to remember why there’s a reason to support Stannis.

Littlefinger, are you sure that Ramsay Bolton has fallen for Sansa??? :S I don’t see any indications of that.

Jaime the romantic. How can he still love his sister so much? She doesn’t seem to love him anymore. Fall for Brienne! Die in her arms instead!

Bronn is so funny and sarcastic. I would hope he doesn’t die, except there’s no point hoping for such things in this show. Jaime learns to use his golden hand!

If I were Bronn, and Jaime told me to bury those bodies myself, I would have told him to screw off, and then rode off on my Dornish stallion. Just saying.

Wait, so one of the Sand Snakes killed her mother? :S Is that what the show is implying?

The moment he started running towards trouble, I KNEW IT. :’-O

And Grey Worm too? 😥 Now Daenerys has no one left, except the guy I don’t like! 😥

Which makes it perfect timing for Ser Jorah to come back, with Tyrion, but it didn’t have to happen at the expense of Ser Barristan! 😥

  1. I’m not sure where you’re getting the notion that Obara killed her mother. I think the choice Oberyn was saying to his daughter, she could either learn to use a weapon like his, or a weapon like her mother’s (her tears. It’s kind of a overbearing macho thing to say. Oberyn probably made it sound charming.)

      It’s a relief to know she didn’t kill her mother! It doesn’t gel with my image of Oberyn as a decent though vengeful guy to condone such an act. I got the impression because immediately after Obara says Oberyn pointed to his spear, and then to her mother’s tears, Obara speared the head of the guy buried in the ground. So I thought she did the same to her mother, which would have been shocking.

      • I think the implication was that Oberyn had come to take Obara away the mother, to train her. I’m glad I could reassure you about my second favorite prince of Dorne!
