I just finished the 1st season. And something that confuses me. When did Bramm's father realize he'd pushed off that window ledge? The boy could never remember himself, so how did the father or mother come to know of it?

It's been a while but isn't the first tip off the knife that the would be assassin uses?

Then, when Ned finds out about Robert's bastards and realises he was not the father of Cercei's children and that Jamie is, he puts two and two together.

Oh, I must've missed that knife-tip bit. And, was he the only one who knows about Jamie and his sister? Or, did he share that information with his wife?

I can't wait to dig into Season 2.

The assassin used a knife that Ned believed belonged to Tyrion. I'm having trouble remembering the specifics of it though.

She knows, though again, I can't remember exactly how.

Maybe someone else can fill in the blanks for you.

Excellent casting once again. I prefer him over Dominic West, who reportedly rejected the role as it would have meant he'd have been away from his family for too long.

The previous Hand (Jon) along with Stannis knew.

This may contain spoilers for those who haven't seen/read the series.



I'm reading the books (can't watch the tv series). The boy was a fantastic climber so the first suspicion of his mother was the fall itself. She figured that there's no way her son would have fallen by accident. Later, the knife confirmed the suspicion.
The fall left the boy in a coma for a while. He was attacked again. After that second attack, the mother & co realised that the knife used in this second murder attempt belongs to Tyrion Lannister. That second attack confirmed that the fall wasn't an accident and that the Lannisters are behind it.

The fact that Eddard Stark knew about Jamie and his sister has to do with how the children look. Eddard Stark obviously knew about the illegitimate children of Robert Baratheon. His illegitimate children all, without exception, very much look like Robert whereas the children of his wife do not, not even a bit. So, from there comes the theory that those so-called "legitimate" children are not from Robert but from Cersei's own brother. Stark understood that this was the reason why the first Hand had died as well and he was foolish enough to talk about this theory to Cersei, saying that he would inform Robert.
Cersei started plotting the deaths of Roger and Eddard Stark.

Stannis also knew that the children are not his brother's so later on in the series, he writes a letter to inform everybody involved with the struggle for the thrones, that the Lannister boy on the throne isn't a real Baratheon so has no actual claim on the throne.

I didn't realise Dominic West turned it down Makes sense though, as he had his role in The Wire reduced for the same reason.

A Freudian slip, mayhaps?

Great summary though.
Why aren't you watching the show, if you don't mind me asking? Waiting or just like the books better?

Imagine if Dominic West and Aidan Gillen came together for an HBO show again.

This isn't related to GoT...

Maya, are you actually on MTF?

It's been great to see Wendell Pierce, Clarke Peters, Aidan Gillen and Michael K. Williams back on HBO already.

Dominic would have been a superior choice, a lot closer to Mance Rayder in age, and man that performance on The Wire was goatlike.

I wanted James Purefoy for Mance, I loved him in Rome but Ciaran was great as well, such a good miniseries.

Forgot to answer your question.

It's not on tv here and I don't feel like buying the DVD or search for it online when I have the books right here to keep me amused.
