    Sansa is a 11/15 or so year old girl trapped in a hostage situation by a woman she idolised by nature of her being the queen. She has the choice of saying X by choice or being forced to say X and getting beaten up for it later.

    You shouldn't hate Sansa, she's doing her best to survive in a place that would happily have her die.

    I think Joffrey is one of the most legitimately unlikable characters ever.

    Edited:

    Sansa too, fuck her.
    Sansa was a kid who thought she knew about the big bad world. Turns out she didn't, she's an idiot and I hate her for getting Lady and the Butchers boy killed, but I can't hold it against her.

    Sansa's just so gloriously out of touch with reality, though she is a prick for the first few books, she looks like she might become slightly less terrible.
    ADWD:    Seems like Rickon's been forgotten about by Martin, though. I mean, he's mentioned to have gone with Osha to one of the northern lords, but you don't even see them breaking up in the book IIRC :v:

    So I thought I'd check the thread for any interesting discussions.
    It's all spoilers and comparisons to the books, which I haven't read. Guess I'm outa here.

    If you want discussion with people who haven't been exposed to any sort of media (not even trailers) outside of the show itself check out the unspoiled speculation thread on television without pity

    book 5 spoilers:    “Soon I must return to the feast to toast my friends of Frey,” Manderly continued. “They watch me, ser. Day and night their eyes are on me, noses sniffing for some whiff of treachery. You saw them, the arrogant Ser Jared and his nephew Rhaegar, that smirking worm who wears a dragon’s name. Behind them both stands Symond, clinking coins. That one has bought and paid for several of my servants and two of my knights. One of his wife’s handmaids has found her way into the bed of my own fool. If Stannis wonders that my letters say so little, it is because I dare not even trust my maester. Theomore is all head and no heart. You heard him in my hall. Maesters are supposed to put aside old loyalties when they don their chains, but I cannot forget that Theomore was born a Lannister of Lannisport and claims some distant kinship to the Lannisters of Casterly Rock. Foes and false friends are all around me, Lord Davos. They infest my city like roaches, and at night I feel them crawling over me.” The fat man’s fingers coiled into a fist, and all his chins trembled. “My son Wendel came to the Twins a guest. He ate Lord Walder’s bread and salt, and hung his sword upon the wall to feast with friends. And they murdered him. Murdered, I say, and may the Freys choke upon their fables. I drink with Jared, jape with Symond, promise Rhaegar the hand of my own beloved granddaughter … but never think that means I have forgotten. The north remembers, Lord Davos. The north remembers, and the mummer’s farce is almost done. My son is home.”

    Oh yeah, I remember now. It's also implied that the    missing Freys were murdered and put in the wedding pies on Manderley's orders, the one which he had something like 3 portions of   
    Also, I can't hear anything about lord Manderly without thinking of the Manderly in Deus Ex

    Out of the three episodes so far, it felt like the longest, despite them all being the same amount of time.

    It's a pretty well know unwritten rule to mention that. People who are new to this thread might not know that, though.

    Margaery is supposed to be about 16, right?

    Her actor is about 30. It's waaaay to big of a leap.
