Littlefinger shows his true colors and how much self control and strategic knowledge he has when dealing with other people...a business man. I think how ever unconfortible I was watching the scene, I can't deny it's psychological importance...


I should be more clear. There were essentially two parts to the scene. The first of them was his whoring lesson segment, during which he revealed his methods and whatnot through whore training. This section spilled over to a certain extent to the second portion, during which he described his history with Catelyn and Brandon Stark. The continued moaning and sexytimes were distracting and confusing as we explored his past. The fact that he was so willing to share this information with whores was also kind of odd, considering how secretive and strategic a man he is. It went from a strangely pornographic exploration of his psyche, to extremely clunky "sexposition". You're very right about this scene having some important psychological importance and that it was more than an excuse to show some breasts; however, the expositional part of it was poorly executed in my opinion.


I still think that's the point...most viewers would/should be distracted :lol: , but yet he goes on and on, just like they do...IMO it was mean to be disturbing, metaphoric, and ironic---because all people in this scene love the sound of their own voices...he's no better than they are, really...and just like them, he needs to be heard, perhaps his need to expel his personal thoughts is to justify his own actions? -Everyone, but true heroes need an audience...

But really perhaps it's too soon for this reflection, because that scene with Tully and son is still forever branded as most disturbing scene to date and perhaps I can think good of any other scene by comparison :rofl:

Gotta love the short press releases for the next episodes, compared to the the paragraphs we've been getting in the last seven episodes.

Meaning? Big stuff is going down. Check the press release for Sunday's episode (spoiler tags just in case; not really that spoilery):

Spoiler (Click to reveal/hide)
The Lannisters press their advantage over the Starks; Robb (Richard Madden) rallies his father’s northern allies and heads south to war.

Caught up on the show from the beginning over the past few days, it was hard to ignore all the hype! Really enjoyed it, despite getting confused quite a bit - there's so many different characters and storylines to follow. At the moment, I really like Daenerys' storyline - she's had so much character development so quickly and I can't wait to see what comes next. Hate Joffrey though, he can't be king!
