VERDICT – 5/5

N/A

QUOTE –
Tyrion Lannister: I’m guilty of being a dwarf. Oh, yes I am. I’ve been on trial for that my entire life. I did not kill Joffery, but I wish that I had! Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores! I wish I was the monster you think I am! I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you! I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it! I will not give my life for Joffery’s murder and I know I’ll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat!

1. Petyr Baelish: Knowledge is power.

2. Jaime Lannister: So many vows. They make you swear and swear. Defend the King, obey the King, obey your father, protect the innocent, defend the weak. But what if your father despises the King? What if the King massacres the innocent? It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or another.

1) Tywin Lannister : All of us dead, all of us rotting in the ground. It’s the family name that lives on. It’s all that lives on. Not your honor, not your personal glory, family.

2) Jeor Mormont: When dead men and worse come hunting for us in the night, you think it matters who sits on the Iron Throne?
