Game of Thrones (spoiler-free zone)

A few have suggested it, might as well test the waters. The idea is to give people who haven't read the books a safe place to talk about the show.

A few quick ground rules:
  • No Spoilers!!!!! for upcoming episodes.
  • Larger Song of Ice and Fire discussion should be limited to the other thread although I think a tiny bit of book delving to fill in holes should be okay (example of this would be talking about Catelyn and her treatment of the wolves in the novel, which was alluded to on TV but never really made clear...)
  • Everything that happened that week is fair game once an episode airs. So if you don't watch on Sunday night, I'd stay outta here until you do...

The Red Wedding was memorable, although I hated everything about it.

Joffrey's death. **** that douche. I'm still waiting on Cersei to get hers..
I wonder why Arya didn't immediately name Joffrey or especially Tywin. Tywin dying would have wiped out the red wedding. Almost a plot hole to me like the eagles in Lotr.

She wanted to but he said "death is certain, the time is not". It could have taken him months or years to take out Tywin or Joffrey. By that time, it wouldn't have mattered so much to her anyway.

I'm not saying naming Tywin, Joffrey and Jamie, etc. wouldn't have been the best choice, but..

Plus, she was like 9 years old at the time. Can't judge too harshly.

Don't think I've ever been happier over the death of a character.

She wanted the Tickler dead, then she was caught snooping through Tywin's things, so she had the man about to tell Tywin killed to save herself. To get out of imprisonment she had to name Jaquen to get her out. Her situation, at the time, dictated her choices more than her desires.

Skip the tickler and just say Tywin - unless it would have taken too long - then I understand. She was allowed 3 names right? So she named two - she has one more correct?

Favorite show of all time - this is the only thing that's bothered me - oh and all my favorite characters dying. At least we still have munch munch.

As I remember, the Tickler was the first name she gave and seemed to be more of a trial run than anything. Remember, at the point he told her she had 3 names to give to the Red God, she had no idea he was an assassin.

Once she saw that he killed the Tickler, she started naming Tywin and Joffrey but he said he couldn't guarantee their deaths would be swift. Then she got caught snooping or whatever and needed Tywin's henchman killed immediately.

The "final" name ended up being all the guards on watch the night she escaped. "A girl lacks honor".

In the books, it's more clear that she just wasn't up for that level of longer range, strategic thinking. She is, after all, just a kid.

Sometime later she dope slaps herself for wasting the opportunity.

Maybe I am remembering incorrectly, but wasn't the Tickler named because he was about to torture her friends?

That's how the show was. The book was different characters than the show, and handled the Tickler's death differently:
