Great show last night! Another wedding!!!
I've been waiting for what happened last night to happen for a while now!!! That was the only spoiler that I knew, but I didn't know when it was going to happen. I'm glad I didn't have to wait a couple more seasons!!!
Finally... all caught up. Was hoping for a more violent end but still a pleasure. Now I have to go from binge watching to weekly. Going to be a tough transition.
So, any guesses on who was behind the assassination?
I think you would have a hard time guessing unless you'd read the books.
Didn't read the books but am enjoying the journey. I have some of it figured out, I think. Just not all of it.
If you want a clue as to one of the parties responsible, go back and watch a certain interaction between two particular characters during the wedding very carefully. All I'm gonna say. I've read the books so I know.
You can also cheat and just go over to Reddit.
My daughter has read the books and has kept quiet. So, my son and I went back over the last scene and noticed some things that indicated at least one person.
Yes -- SPOILER ALERT!!! -- shot in the dark here, but I'm guessing that Little Finger never left King's Landing and colluded with Dontos and Olenna Redwyne to assasinate Joffrey. I'm betting that the necklace Dontos gave Sansa had the poison, and Olenna retrieved it when she straightened out Sansa's dress. I'm further betting that Little Finger planted the seed in Joffrey's mind to use dwarfes as part of the wedding "entertainment" in order to make Tyrion look that much more guilty.
You've either subconsciously read spoilers or you have a heck of a good guess.
Semi spoiler for general GoT watching:
There are obviously a ton of characters in GoT so paying close attention to all of them can be a chore. That being said if you get down to the nuts and bolts of GoT it is a story about diplomacy and one could say the whole story boils down to a game between Varys and Baelish.
Neither, I was being sarcastic with my shot in the dark comment. Hence, the spoiler alert.
haha well played! I thought you were some sort of savant.
episode one left me on the fence about continuing to watch, as it was underwhelming for me. But episode 2 reignited my interest.
To each their own but I don't know how you could watch a scene like the one that ended episode 1 and not be enthralled by this show.
Seriously. I used to think Jaime was a prick for doing that to Bran, but as Bran got more and more boring and useless as the show/books went on I got to the point where I am now where I wish Jaime had thrown him out of a higher window.
Did anyone else pop champagne after the purple wedding? No, just me? Well, it was worth it.
To me the beauty of this show/book is the manipulation of characters like Jaime. In the first season/book he is basically a terrible person. He pushes Bran out a window for selfish reasons, he contributes greatly to Ned's downfall, and he is a smug jerk looking out only for himself. There was only one character I disliked more, Joffrey. Now look at his character arc? He is probably my favorite on the show. The way G RR Martin can make you go from hating a character to pulling for his success is a true gift.
This. I very much look forward to Stannis undergoing a similar change as well.
I don't think the person/party/group ultimately behind the wedding disaster (trying not to be a spoiler) can be predicted at this point.
