1st guess Sansa

2nd Tyrells

3rd everyone else because who wouldn't want him dead


You can see it pre-going-down, but you have to look pretty fuckn close. It's almost too subtle.

Also, hot DAMN Oberyn is such a badass. Guy is knocking it out of the park.

LONG LIVE THE KING.

Two possible happenings:


Margaery goes off-screen with the cup after, but it would still be more obvious to people around her. Tyrion did glance at her mother, though...


Hidden from view, but I'm not sure if Sansa could have done it that quickly. Maybe if she had something in her palm that she slipped in while picking it up.

In any case, Tyrion pretty much gets blamed for all of the things. I swear to fucking horse butts that he'd better not die goddammit.

The dryest pie in all the land

I knew what would happen this episode as soon as I saw it was written by GRRM

Before that, I though it was gonna be next week because Lady Olenna said the wedding was two weeks time on E01, and I wanted that to match

When it's revealed, you will be surprised, but simultaneously not so surprised.

I'm guessing it was Olenna Tyrell.

"But killing a man at a wedding? Horrid. What sort of monster would do such a thing?”

I mean, COME ON.

 After watching the scene again, you can see the poison "hand-off" and everything. Very neat.

We have a weiner. If you want to know how, rewatch season 2 episode 1. Melisandre and the maester. Watch it. You'll be all "OOHHHHHHH"

Really unhappy with the way they changed the Jamie/Cersei scene. Also becoming increasingly sick of how Stannis is being portrayed. Also lots of unnecessary filler scenes this week.

But Oberyn, you magnificent bastard. Tywin was great too, but he always is.

Yeah a lot of this episode was spent jumping from one incredibly awkward expository/character-building scene to the next, with a few cool exceptions.

I guess the writers felt like they had to let things breath a bit after dropping the bomb last week.

Really unhappy with the way they changed the Jamie/Cersei scene. Also becoming increasingly sick of how Stannis is being portrayed.

I'd be really interested to hear you expand on this a bit, if you get a chance.

In the books that scene wasn't rapey. She pushed him away the first few times he tried to kiss her, but then she was the one commanding him to stick it in. In the sept. Next to their son's dead body. While she was on her period. It was grosser and more awkward in the book, but at least it wasn't Jamie raping her.

As for Stannis, they've changed him quite a lot. In the books he didn't believe in any gods, he just kept Melisandre around because she got results. He was more of a cold, neutral force for blind justice. Law was law. He listened to the advice Davos gave him and didn't treat him so shitty. Show Stannis is all lord of light n fuck you Davos n whatnot.

So if you hear book readers talking about how much they love "Stannis the mannis", don't look at them funny. He was way cooler in the books.

Ah, I was wondering why Stannis
is all lord of light n fuck you Davos n whatnot.


but seeing

on Reddit actually cleared it up for me, although I fail to see why it was worth changing his character that much just for that tie in, Tywin's speech is good enough standing alone, unless it's bought up more directly later

It's been theorized that it's because it sets up an insane thing that will happen to him later, but if that's the case, it only serves to take the impact out of it. Which I dunno why they'd do. Lot of weird decisions being made on this show. But it's still great overall.

I honestly don't understand why show writers fuck with story so much. I understand if it were in the interest of space (and added scenarios and scenes that don't impact the story), but all the shit I've heard has literally nothing to do with space and more "THIS WOULD BE BETTER LOL". But George R.R. Martin knew what he was doing, and didn't need changes. It's just so damn arrogant of the show writers.

Anyway:

Daenerys: PLEASE IMPREGNATE ME

Oberyn: Da man. Kinda worried about the trial, though...

Tyrion: Don't die don't die don't die don't die don't die Just fucking typing his name into Google gives me "Tyrion death". But I fucking refuse goddammit.

Shae: I'm 95% positive that she's dead. Or something horrible happened to her and she's still in King's Landing. Or she got sold off. Or she got sent north of The Wall.

Stansa: Oh god no oh god no oh god no oh god no oh god no TAT

The Hound: He was completely capable of killing the father, and the daughter, but he didn't. Really liking this character. Even though he's an asshole.

Sept: Oh. What a happy family.

Theon: Still has no panus.
