    Stannis & Melisandre - I don't even know how to classify magic vagina smoke babies..
    Renly & Loras - Violence Involved (took a while, but eventually it has caused issue for Loras) (I wouldn't say their relationship caused Renly's death)

    Renly & Margaery - don't know if that was ever consumated.
    Gendry & Melisandre - after getting him going, she dropped leeches on him, including one on his wang. How does that fit the categories?

    Robert Baratheon and Cersei - would that count if it's only mentioned as a memory?

    Guess what? Both of those couples' "relationships" started the exact same way that Sansa's and Ramsey's did. They didn't show Robert and Cersei on the screen but in the books, it is recalled, and the description isn't much different than Sansa/Ramsey, just subtract Theon from the mix. Hell, Drogo and Daenerys may be the "best" couple in this show, and that started out by Dany's brother basically selling her to a Dothraki Horselord, who married her and raped her in front of his whole Khal. (happened a little different than that in show)

If you didn't already have an inkling that this was where Sansa was heading, then you shouldn't have been watching this show to begin with.
    Right, like anyone would think her arranged marriage to Ramsey Bolton, the noted flayer and torturer, would be flowers on her pillow and breakfast in bed, while snuggling Sunday mornings away together in bed reading the Westeros Times.

    The only surprising part of that scene was he didn't make Miranda watch too...

    Yeah, they're there too, but we only saw them for an episode or 2 together, so we didn't get much of their relationship in the show. But going by what we know, they would have also been one of the few stable ones we've seen.

    What really gets me about much of the online reaction to that scene is the amount of phony people claiming to be outraged, because it happened to Sansa and "She doesn't deserve it!" Oh, ok. So maybe it's sorta bad when rape happens to someone else, but when it's the pretty young(ish) girl, then it's somehow worse? People are so stupid.

    Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen actually met. Only been waiting ten years for that.

    In the very first episode, are the seven women who surround the "mad king" on his death bed, the same ones that just brought Cersei in?

    Sam got himself some Gillyweed and Cersei made Tywin's admonition of her from last season come to fruition: that she's not as smart as she thinks she is because finally realized that she's made a weapon for playing the Game of Thrones that's stronger than herself.

    The Mad King never makes an appearance in Game of Thrones...he was killed by the Kingslayer something like 10 years before the events in the first episode of GoT. So, I'm not sure what you're talking about...


    Loved this episode. Lots of good storyelines bearing fruit. Sam finally gets with Gilly, Cersei gets her desevrings, and Tyrion meets Dany. The rest of this season is going to be turned up a few notches, I'm guessing.

    Re: Game of Thrones, Season V: Arya Ready?

    Episode nine of each season is usually the climax of events (Ned's Lost Head, Red Wedding, Purple Wedding, Battle at Castle Black) with episode ten dealing with the fallout. Just to give a slight bit of thought to the progression of the show's history. I'm excited to see where it goes this year. I'm wagering it'll be the battle at Winterfell for which they've been selling all season long or something to do with Dany. The High Sparrow's story will be the season conclusion. All speculation on my part, but it's just how I see the season ending.

    Agreed ... more sensible outcome than last week. I actually like this slight change in the players in Cersei's (temporary?) downfall. More meaningful and delicious that it's her own cousin spilling the truth than some former hedge knight. However, don't lose sight of the fact that, if all the hints in the book and from last season really point to something important, the evil b**** will have a big, big card up her sleeve when/if she goes to trial.

    In the very first episode of the series who is the guy laying dead on the table in Kings Landing then with the seven ladies circling him?
