Joffrey being cruel to Ros. It looks like they’re going to involve her in the plot even more this season. I didn’t like their insertion of Ros so much in season 1. It is not the fleshing out of a prostitute that I minded so much, because I prefer to get into the head of one instead of having faceless random women like in the books, it’s that they failed majorly at fleshing her out. She is always shown in a sexual context, always on the job, always clean, and the worst that happens to her is that she’s bored with Pyrcell giving the impression that being a prostitute is just dandy in Westeros. In this season I hope that they use her character better.
Robb and Jeyne. I wish we would get a proper look at Oona instead of always in shadows.
Theon in bed with a woman. Probably the captain’s daughter?
Shae is fierce, telling some dude who is boss. I look forwards to seeing the continuation of HBO’s development of her character. She was a bit of a doormat in the books. Now she stands head to head with Tyrion.
A first look at the stunning Steven Cole as Kovarro. Could he be Dany’s love interest instead of Joreh, please?
1. Good points about Ros.
2. That’s Catelyn, not Jeyne. But I totally understand how you’d make that mistake with that staging.
3. That’s Theon and Osha. I have some theories about why she’d nail him; I think for people who’ve read ACoK, an obvious idea as to why she’d do it presents itself.
4. That’s Shae shoving around a woman. I think it’s Ros, actually, but I’m not 100% certain. The profile looks like her, to me, but definitely female, I’d say.
5. I HAVE MANY STEVEN COLE FEELS.
