I'm re-watching the last episode and that moment when the guards bring in Ros instead of Shae. WOW. Tyrion composing his face and processing what has happened and then covering his relief all in an instant. PD's an amazing actor.
The scene right after that, where Tyrion finds Shae in his room is great too,Click to see Spoiler:although I feel a little less kindly toward her considering how she betrays him later. Those are scenes I cannot wait to see!
I think the reason I care less about Robb is that he's not a POV character in the books. You never know his inner thoughts, so he's always been sort of a remote character for me. I never find myself anxious to find out what's going on with Robb. When his scenes come on, I think, "Oh yeah, I forgot about Robb again."
I do have a crush on John Snow, though. I also love Tyrion- I hope he ends up happy.
Those who have read the books- how old is Arya in terms of the last book. (if she is still living)
Click to see Spoiler:GRRM is not real good at telling us how much time has past from one book to the other. I think she starts in book 1 around 10. She has not gotten her period by the last book, so I don't picture her more than 11-12 by the time book 5 rolls around. But others may have a different take. Yes, she is still alive and I have a feeling that she plays a very important part to how all these books are going to wrap up.
The reason I care less about Robb is that he just arrested his mother.
I doubt that those men, who worship him, would stop respecting him for not arresting his mother. Especially in that they all know what the widow of Ned Stark has been through. They also hold her in high esteem.
It occurs to me that perhaps he did it to insure her safety? I don't know that it's common knowledge that she was the "liberator," though.
