    TBF, she's also in the most precarious of positions of all the kids. She was never "strong" in the same sense as Arya, Rob, or Jon. I think for her to simply survive, and that too while being Joffrey's favorite target, is somewhat an achievement.

    rewatching a few season one episodes. man, with 20/20 hindsight robb should have obeyed the joffrey summons to swear loyalty and done the usual take 100 or 200 odd blokes for protection on the road and appearances etc etc then taken the red keep from the inside. get the rest of the stark army to march south and keep the other ****s occupied.

    there were 2000 city watch and 100 lannister men (ned stark talks about it with littlefinger). get in the keep, seal the thing. the city watch are a glorified militia with no siege weapons or concept of assault warfare being essentially guards and peacekeepers.

    might have worked out a bit better.

    Nah Joffrey would've just taken his head off too. He just shouldn't have banged that nurse. Scratch that,he couldve banged her brains out every few hours. If he'd only waited a few days, got married tothat Frey girl, defeated the Lannisters, and then said "**** you Frey, ima marry this hot foreign nurse, everything would be fine. Instead he was all Me too horny, gotta marry and bang nao! Jesus what a dumb****

    nah the whole king in the north crap would have been the end of him. stannis would have wanted him dead because he's so black and white. robb was a dead man as soon as he let his meatheaded mate give him a crown. even if he won and killed joffrey, who takes the throne? stannis and robb were the only options and robb wouldn't have wanted it. 5 kingdoms behind stannis vs 2 behind robb. robb would have been wasted.

    ned could have ended the whole series before it even started if he wasn't so far up his own arse.

    Yeah, it was fairly evident that Rob was up **** creak even before the Red Wedding (especially after the whole Karstack kerfuffle). The support of the Frey's might've helped out a bit, but they're just one family and I doubt they'd be able to reverse the general trend that the war was heading in.

    i thought Arya was really blood thirsty how she killed that fellow at the end. granted he killed her friend. But she just did it with no second thoughts. Maybe it was just badly acted.

    Edit posted this without reading the previous page - glad to know I was not alone with being caught off guard by her actions.

    Game of Cricket Web

    Daemon would be either Lommy or Ser Dantos
    Fusion would be Honourable Ned Stark
    Burgey would be senile Walder Frey
    Jono would be Sansa and proclaim his love for Virat Joffrey

    I thought Arya's kill at the end was perfectly donei felt. Why did it feel jarring? That guy Polliver has been on her kill list for a while now and she's already killed a boy in self defence years back, and that was before she had watched her father, mother and son massacred before her eyes. Her vengeance has been a long time coming... Was nice to see her get a bit of it here

    Ftr, it's even more brutal in the books... That kill was toned down a great deal

    I appreciate duality of emotions in acting. Which is why watching New Zealand actors in small town Hamilton growing up was a bit of a chore. I felt that she should have had a look of remorse on her face for an instant (1 or 2 seconds) and then proceeded with it anyway. That's how I would have done it if I were the director.

    arya is becoming all the various o-paths. she has no remorse. that's the point.

    edit: answered my own spoilery question.
