None of the victors of Robert's Rebellion would have had it, and Dorne probably would have attempted to re-secede.Originally Posted by Kirblar
Him saying "It's all a game" in this last episode spoke volumes in regards to where he is mentally.
He's truly a tragic character.
I still don't quite understand what Jamie's play was with the throne. Obviously he was afraid of Ned, but was he trying to take it or hold it for daddy?
Didn't he resign his position as Hand under Aerys for fear of his life? My understanding was that Tywin held the kingdom together for 20 year in spite of Aerys' madness and that Aerys' reign spiraled out of control after Tywin's resignation.
I've put that in spoiler tags, but it's available on the Game of Thrones Wiki, which is supposed to be for people who have not read the books.
Yeah. Aerys and Tywin had a contentious relationship. The kingdom would often joke that Tywin, who was Aerys' Hand, truly ruled the Kingdom. Aerys was self-conscious of it and frequently did things to fuck with Tywin -- one being promoting Jamie to the Kingsguard, not because Aerys thought he deserved it, but because Aerys knew it would outrage Tywin, who wanted Jamie to fulfill his obligations as heir to Casterly Rock. Tywin resigned his position as Hand once it became clear that Aerys was fucking with him. Aerys subsequently placed puppets in the position, going through a few different Hands up until he was killed.

First review I've seen for the game. Not a positive one.
(although they do say the story is good)
I get this all the time. They say, "You really hate Daredevil. Look how mean you are to Daredevil." I'm like, "Would you really buy a book about him enjoying a sandwich? 'What a great sandwich. I'm going to eat this for 22 pages, and I'm going to be so happy.'" I may do it just to prove a point. Have Wolverine going, "This is the best bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich I've ever had in my life!"
