Of course Jaime believes Tyrion is innocent and maybe in the next episode he will do something to help him.Everybody goes through alittle bit of violence like Reek,poor fella hahahhhhhhhhhh. Lady Olenna is so smart and vile,i love her.She reminded me why i like villains.This episode was so interesting and revealing.

I understand deviations from the book are necessary, but in one episode to change so much? Bran is not only captured by the mutineers (doesn’t happen), and Jon knows he’s alive (doesn’t happen), now using a non-existent character (Locke) participating in a non-existent event. I actually had said they were going to have to deviate from the book because of timing, just didn’t expect so soon. Guess we’ll see if it pans out.

At least it did answer the question that those that read the book assumed, that the WW were the result of actual humans. Though I’m guessing even though Craster supplied quite a few babies, not all are just Craster’s offspring.

I understand that the show producers make changes to the book, but today’s episode had 2 over the top deviations, Locke befriending Snow and Bran getting captured by the rebel nights’ watch men???? COME ON!

“What’s a Game Of Thrones episode without more than a little violence against women?” was such an odd line to read. As if you’re singling out violence against women for condemnation rather than violence against people in general.

I’m surprised as well considering that GoT has a lot of violence against men – Varys, Theon and others…

I believe that line is specifically referring to rape when talking about violence here. Do you seriously believe (other than Theon) that sexual assault towards the men on this show is anywhere near the level the women face?

Thats a nice way to justify the author’s words.

Bu it never occurred to her to criticize the show’s violence in general, only its violence against women. She’s a woman and she relates to women’s suffering. Its probably natural that she wouldn’t feel the same aversion to the sight of men being tortured and slaughtered as she would at seeing women being sexually violated.

What bugged me about this is that society seems to value men’s lives less than women. If it became public knowledge that thousands of women were being brutally raped in prison, I bet you there would be a bigger movement for prison reform. Yet everyone knows this happens to men in prison and most people don’t care. If women were dying by the thousands on the front lines in war, I bet you the number of unnecessary wars we are fighting would quickly drop to zero. Men’s lives are valued less. We were taught this as children and this is what most people unconsciously pass on to their children.

The writer did say “violence” though she may have been thinking sexual violence. As far as what has happened to characters during the series so far, I’d take Cersei’s experiences over Theon’s any day of the week. In fact I’d rather have my lover force their will once on me than get my hand cut off especially before the days of modern medicine.

The failed assault on Sansa was more disturbing even just in the amount of time she was threatened until the Hound stepped in. On top of sexual assault she faced real violence, pain and probably death plus the unknown of what those lunatics were capable of. The near miss was probably traumatizing to her as innocence she was.

We know Jaime believes Tyrion to be innocent because he says it in the episode, to Cersei. It was a decent episode. I found out I was right about who killed Joffrey. Yet I believe Tywin must have given his tacit consent to Olenna to off the little monster. No way a guy like Tywin Lannister is going to let a rolling cannon psycho (not to mention a bastard borne of incest) like Joffrey remain king.

Wrong. White Walkers. A) They are White Walkers, and B) the baby is turned into a White Walker…NOT a Wight. The baby’s eyes glow blue, not the same as the zombied Wights, which btw are dead humans they resurrect. The baby was never killed. It’s now a White Walker, NOT a Wight
