Game of Thrones: S4 E2 “The Lion and the Rose”

@McBallz and @jjwade Recap Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2 “The Lion and the Rose”.

WARNING SPOILERS for Game of Thrones up to S4 E2. Recorded on 4/14/2014

We do not spoil anything later in Season 4, or later books in the series. Jordan has not read the books, but he makes some predictions and speculations on what he thinks will come to pass. Join us next week when we do an episode recap for Season 4 Episode 3 “Breaker of Chains”!


  1. Roninphan says:

    My theory is that it was conspiracy between Sansa Stark, Olenna Tyrell and Dontos Hollard. Here’s why:

    1. Sansa was the one who touch the cup and handed it to Tyrion. So she was the only one who had the chance to do so besides Tyrion. Plus if Tyrion did it, that would be too obvious. Sansa also had that dead stare when the little people performance was going on and the part where’s the actor playing Rob got decapitated gave me a reason to suspect it gave her the push she needed to poison Joffrey.

    2. Olenna Tyrell, because if you recall last season she had many several meetings with Sansa and others on Joffrey’s character. I think she master minded the entire thing to protect her grand daughter Margaery and maybe another reason unforeseen.

    3. Dontos was only brought into the fold after pledging his allegiance to Sansa the episode before. Sansa saw him as a good ally to help her escape.

    My theory anyways.
