This post will be discussing plot points in HBO’s Game of Thrones, specifically relating to one of the show’s major religions, the Faith of the Seven. (After my controversial pro-Olly posts last month, I thought I should talk about something safer. Like religion. By the way, this is my 100th post on Game of Thrones. Yay me.)

Sorry, your grace. This is a meeting of the NO TOMMENS club. You know how it is.

I’ll be covering┬ádetails from┬áthe first five seasons of Game of Thrones, so if you’re behind in your viewing, you’ve been warned about spoilers.

(You sinner.)

This post will be talking about HBO’s Game of Thrones, specifically how many of the major characters’ season 5 storylines were twins (or possibly Bizarro Twins) of their respective storylines in season 2.

I introduced the topic two posts ago, and last post dealt with both of the exiled monarchs, Daenerys Targaryen and Stannis Baratheon. This post will be all about the Lannisters.

Some seasons are Good Hair seasons, some seasons are Bad Hair seasons.

There are less (fewer) Lannisters now to talk about than in season 2, but I’ll confine myself to Lord Tywin’s three children.

This post will be talking plot details from HBO’s Game of Thrones, the excellent adaptation of George RR Martin’s epic A Song of Ice and Fire series. Specifically, I’ll be talking about Jaime Lannister in the first three seasons of the show (and therefore roughly through 2.5 of the books. If that’s how you roll.)

Jaime-Lannister

No Need For All this Fuss! Surely my Charm and Good Looks are all that’s Required for a Defense. Not so?

Thanks to Season Four of Game of Thrones and how they adapted a certain scene between Jaime and his sibling Cersei, I feel it necessary to start my defense of Jaime Lannister with a proactive defense of my defense. This is a topic that had been on my big list of planned Game of Thrones articles before Season Four aired last year, and I didn’t get a chance to talk about Jaime before the controversial sept scene.

This post will be touching on the first three seasons of HBO’s excellent series Game of Thrones. If you’re not caught up on the story, be forewarned that I’ll be dropping plot spoilers for the TV show.

Bring Me a Puppy! A King Has a Schedule to Keep!

There isn’t a lot of good things that can be said about the eldest son of Queen Cersei…

  • Executing Ned Stark? Bad move.
  • Torturing Sansa with severed heads, having her publicly humiliated? Extremely ungentlemanly.
  • Killing Ros? There’s nothing that I can say that would adequately express my horror and disgust.

But, and as odd as it sounds, I’m not here to condemn Joffrey Baratheon (although he is worthy of condemnation.) I’m here to defend the one time he was solidly, entirely right. And as a bonus (or the opposite of bonus) I’ll try to cast some reasonable doubt on some of the atrocities attributed to him.

Even the Mad King 2.0 can be surprisingly correct on occasion.
