Gods, I love Dinklage/Tyrion!

Glad they didn't try to cover too much in this episode.

Just a few disconnected thoughts:

How the hell did they erect that statue over the canal?

Awesome cameo from the dragon.

I have mixed feelings about Mark Gatiss writing for Doctor Who but I liked him as the snotty bank manager.

Maybe I missed something but why did they just let Ramsay unlock those kennels?

Theon! What a thankless role!

Gah, can't wait to see what happens with Tyrion.

How did they build the statue?

What happened when the top ninety feet of that sword the statue was holding snapped off, and did it hit anyone or anything on the way down?

magic? It's also possible that the statue is built with a metal skeleton constructed out of valyrian steel acting as a type of rebar through-out to provide stability and strength and valryain steel being much lighter, yet much stronger than normal steel.

They'd be rich of enough to still have such a thing and not have since melted it down for swords.

Great episode....even though the greyjoys are one of my least favorite. Plotlines

Top notch and answered a huge question I've had over whether a twist in the books was going to be followed or whether a character would be spared that ignominy.

Re: Game of Thrones 4.6 - "The Laws of Gods and Men" - Rate and discus

I think this was the first episode of the entire series in which we didn't see any of the Starks.

Also, a minor nitpick: During the trial, I thought I heard multiple references to Sansa as "Sansa Stark". Isn't she Sansa Lannister now?

Since the Lannisters were behind the trial, it seems unlikely that they would want Sansa associated with them any longer. Why give her "official status" as part of their family?

Clearly it was aliens.

Or, probably similar to the way we did it in ancient times (even if it straddling the harbor like that is now considered to be erroneous).

Take your pick. I'll understand if you go with the former, though. That seems to be the popular assumption these days whenever someone sees something impressive like that if those shows on the History Channel and the Learning Channel are anything to go by.

Speaking of erect, how many people look up when they're right underneath it?

I'm sure the wall along the north would've been far more difficult to construct.

Well, Tyrion picked Jaime when he was at the Vale, so I'm guessing he might pick Jaime again. Their faces all showed it. They cut to Jaime and then to Cersei. And it seems to be a sort of power play because all of Tywin's eggs are in the basket of Jaime, who is now missing his sword hand. It was all in those short moments you could see Jaime knowing he couldn't fight well enough, Cersei losing her brother and (former?) lover, and Tywin losing both heirs and his family name.
