Did You Know?


Tyrion finds out which of three members of the small council (Pycelle, Varys or Littlefinger) is spying for his sister, by giving each suspect a different unique piece of information, and then seeing which one his sister finds out about. This method, commonly known as "Barium meal test" or "canary trap" (the latter term was coined by Tom Clancy), has been used in real intelligence agencies for decades. See more »

Tyrion in Charge, No Matter What
30 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is more carnage. Fighting goes on. Jon is expelled because he has failed to obey the monster who is killing his own sons, feeding them to some unknown entity. The point attempted to be made is that no matter what the cost, the overall goal is good in the sight of the gods. Think of all that has been done in the name of religion and lust for land and power. Theon unwittingly puts moves on his own sister as she take him to the castle of his father. He is disgusted with her but should be with himself. She is a warrior and his father has no faith in him. There is an ugly scene but it is soon resolved that he will carry the flag of his father.

Tyrion tests the loyalty of the peripheral lackeys of the queen. He has one of them put in a "black cell" because the minute he received a secret, he went right to the queen. Tyrion continues to be the true ruler and treats King Joffrey like the child he is, the impetuous little snot he is.

Catlyn Stark continues to make alliances with other kingdoms. Joffrey's thugs continue to look for the bastards of the dead king.
