    If I was the Tyrells I would get the hell out of dodge. Cersei is a defacto queen now.

    Hound got what he deserved, it was completely unnecessary for him to pick a fight with Brianne.
    That's what I got from that. It's different than in the book - in the book, he goes into hiding, but I don't think you know where. I'm curious to see how they will change the Tyrion angle with him having a travel buddy.

    Maybe he replaces Illyrio?

    No difference, really. She's been defacto queen since Robert died (excluding the short period of time when Joeffry decided he could rule without her). The difference is she always had Tywin (and Tyrion, to an extent, although she'd refuse to admit it) to keep her in check. With him gone, it's just a matter of time until her bat-**** crazy and paranoia take over.

    OK...I guess if you want to argue semantics and say she's "always" been defacto queen...whatever. The point you make about no one around to keep her in check was the same point I was making. There is no one to keep her in line now (possible exception of Jaime), and that's bad news for the Tyrells.

    So does Mace Tyrell become hand then? He's the Lanister's most powerful friend. Or maybe Oberon's brother? Roose Bolton? I don't know, but now that the season is over I'm reading the books. Started last night and I'm like 50 pages in.

    And Danny needs to get the hell out of Essos. This Queen thing has been a disaster.

    Cersei still has to give Tyrells respect. Highgarden is keeping Kings Landing fed. Even Cersei is not that crazy.

    I think Mace wants to be, but I think Cersei is scared/hateful of the Tyrells enough that she won't let him be Hand AND Margaery be queen (which is already set in motion by her being engaged to Tommen).

    I can't remember the significance or where Arya go the iron piece she gave to the captain at the end of the episode. What was that and where did she get it? What did it mean?

    It's the coin given to her by Jaqen H'ghar, the assassin she rescued, who then helped her in Harrenhal.

    This link has a good synopsis (stop reading before "A Feast for Crows"):

    http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Jaqen_H'ghar

    It's Jaqen, the guy who gave Arya three kills. "Once his debt is filled, Jaqen prepares to take his leave, but he first gives Arya an old iron coin and instructs her to give it to any man of Braavos, saying the words "valar morghulis" should she ever need more help. Then he announces that "Jaqen H'ghar" must die, and passes a hand over his face. His face magically reshapes into that of a hook-nosed man with a gold tooth."
