Does the need for hot spouses come from the Tully side of things? Because the first question Edmure has is if he can see her first. Also, Cat was like, head over heels for Brandon Stark prior to marrying Ned, both of whom Littlefinger described as “impressive specimens.” Maybe the Tullys are the shallow ones.
Talisa admits she doesn’t even know where Winterfell is and girl- you’ve been in Westeros for how long now? You’ve been in Camp Stark for how long and you didn’t bother to study a map of the "kingdom" you would help run?
On another walk in the garden, Varys and Olenna sling mud at each other with banter that’s half-flirting, half-backhanded bitch slapping.
Apparently, the prostitutes have such a good time with Pod, that their delight was payment enough. Pod is a Sex God. Sex God Pod.
If Theon's torture rack looks familiar, it’s because it’s the same symbol Roose bears on his CHEST in the preceding scene and then it’s on his BANNERS later on. WHAT A DELICIOUS TRAIL OF BREADCRUMBS.
Among the bodies, Talisa finds Qyburn, who is at Harrenhal because reasons. Well. There are reasons for this in the book but you know. Show stuff! But Book-Qyburn concerns Roose Bolton, so we’ll get into it anyway.
We are treated to what is Tywin’s greatest entrance on the run of the show, as his horse takes a giant dump before he enters the Throne Room on horseback. It is the most posturing of any moment any character has ever had on this show and Tywin basically wins all dick measuring contests from here.
Davos hears the bells and orders his men to strike the drums in response. It’s like Mad Max: Fury Road- but on water and a lot slower, and no guitarist.
I used to really like the Talisa/Robb angle until I realized that it made Robb look like a complete fool. It's wholly inconsistent with his character.
How can the King in the North choose a lover that shows absolutely no loyalty to his people? IT’S A GREAT QUESTION, NORTH.
