    Sorry Kyle, Amin is right! On the show Randall Tarly is at home! Why would he support Cercei instead of his liege lord? At least in the books he is around King’s Landing.

    I’m gonna have to rule against Kyle on most accounts in this episode. I definitely feel like the Great Houses Tyrell and Martell would still have the loyalty of their bannermen and would thus take their power with them in backing Dany.

    In regards to the Santyr Baelsa business; come on man Littlefinger is horrible! In the books he takes Sansa’s friend Jeyne Poole and trains her as a prostitute and hands her to the Boltons. http://nobodysuspectsthebutterfly.tumblr.com/post/44733292435/sigh-ok-ill-answer-this-one-its-something On the show he abandons Sansa herself.

    It’s quite likely that Baelish was influencing Joffrey into executing Ned. http://nobodysuspectsthebutterfly.tumblr.com/post/141021455368/not-littlefinger-no At the very least he betrayed him and lead to his downfall.

    Littlefinger acts like he’s Sansa’s savior but really he’s the cause of a lot of her problems. http://nobodysuspectsthebutterfly.tumblr.com/post/62046206905/its-not-help-when-youre-the-reason-why-the He’s been grooming and perving on her since she was 12, and you think hooking up with him will be a happy ending for her?!

    I’m confident that you don’t aim to be quite so callous, and it’s true that he is perhaps not as bad on the TV show, but you’ve certainly gotten this one all wrong. Sansa deserves some love and honesty, not leering manipulation and deception.

  3. Don’t mean to pile on but I’m going to guess Kyle forgot that the Tarly’s were bannermen to the Tyrells and not their own great house. Seems only in the (show) North do houses switch sides depending on which way the wind is blowing.
