Jaime Lannister sends his regards.Then again, he was saving the lives of three with the attempted murder of Bran. And, I'm not so sure he were persistent. We don't know (at least at this point in the show) who hired the cutthroat. He only pushed Bran from the tower.The things he does for love.
Ned is not one sided. He is also a mixed character.Just using things revealed in AGoT and ACoK, trying to avoid later reveals/theories-Ned brings a bastard into his house immediately upon getting married; refuses to tell Catelyn anything about Jon Snow's origin. While they ruined Cat on the show two episodes ago (among other character destruction), she was miserable the entire time knowing that Ned probably loved someone else and may have secretly wanted to be with that...
You'll find that most of the characters are very complex, Jaime included. He explained quite a bit of it in his discussion with Catelyn last season, although his explanation for his greatest moment (killing the Mad King) and how it got him a horrible reputation as an oath breaker is much better laid out in the book for that same scene. King Aerys II was going to burn the city with wildfyre. Jaime had an oath to the realm, an oath to protect the innocent, an oath to his...
You forgot Ser Grandfather - aka Barristan Selmy- the old knight who saved the hot ass kahllisi (sic) and who is too old to boan her.So imagine there's this fat lord from the North who pays tribute to Bran (the paralyzed kid) for about 5 pages in the second book and then is referred to by someone reporting to the blond queen brother fucker in the fourth book, who appears again in the fifth book and is totally awesome. And, without reading them back to back again, you're...

Here's some info through this point of the show, that has not been included in the show-Their home is Starfall; the Daynes are the second most prominent family in Dorne.Ser Arthur Dayne, Kingsguard, given the hereditary title Sword of the Morning, possessed the sword Dawn (comes with the title); described by everyone from Eddard (Ned) Stark, to Jaime, to Barristan as the greatest Kinght they had ever known; both in terms of honor and combat abilities. Slayed the leader of...
i read the books three times and don't remember Jaime praising Loras so much. I recall Loras reputation as being great with the lance and in tourneys and merely very good with the sword, whereas his brother was considered a greater swordsman and even better when dressed in Renly's armor.The interesting thing is that theatrically swords are great. But, they were used primarily against small folk and unarmored footsoldiers by mounted knights after their initial charge with...
