    It was after he was injured in the fight with Jaime, and was handling the King's business. Some peasant told Ned about his village being wrecked by Clegaine, and decided now was a good time to declare him an enemy of the state and KoS, much to the chagrin of the rest of the small council.

    He sent a Knight after him to capture him - Lord Berric Dondarrion. I think it's one of the first things we see Ned do as Hand, or one of the last (just after he duals with the Kingslayer).

    It occurs in response to Catelyn capturing Tyrion.

    Certainly the Joffrey scene was disturbing but I do think it served more than just showing that "Yes, he really is a jerk." It's pretty likely that Joff was aware of his father's general whoring. He's sending a message to Tyrion that he is not his father and can't be ordered around just because Tyrion sends him some nice gifts.

    I loved Joff's crossbow, though. That thing was, like, the assault rifle of crossbows.

    Everyone is justly pissed about the new Mountain -- he's got a kickass voice, though. One of the least important parts about the character, sure. But hey... silver lining?

    As for the rest...

    Stannis is pretty awesome. It's almost as if he wouldn't even really care about being king, but for the rules and it rightly being his claim.

    I think someone already mentioned it, but they really should have a spinoff with Tyrion and Bronn in some sort of Westeros buddy cop show. Those two are great together.

    Anyone else notice Harrenhall was 'dead' in the credits as in there were no moving gears or anything

    That was a threat. Notice the difference?

    Harrenhal was a damn fine set/location. It looked like the Pits of Isengard, minus orcs.

    It's already been posted before, but it's still funny to watch the youtube buddy comedy re-imagining.

    When Joffrey dies (boy I sure hope he dies) I think me and my friends who are watching with me are going to throw a massive party in celebration.

    Seriously. I'd dare say, if they ever have some kind of award for the most despised/hated villain in fiction Joffrey would definitely be a forerunner in the rankings, if not the one who just wins the award outright. I gotta say, I actually feel really sorry for the actor playing him. The poor kid must feel terrible after a day of shooting that role.

    Don't be. He got to hang with Batman, after all.

    Anyway, this whores scene reaffirmed an old theory I had:

    (Not a book spoiler, but just in case)
    Spoiler:

    As for the Bloody Mummers scene, there was one bit that I was really curious if it would show on TV. Turns out they skipped on it, as it was even worse than what they did show.
    Spoiler:

    Every time someone insists that this series has "no good or evil characters, just shades of gray", I look at Joffrey or one of the dozen of other characters and think:

    "Uh, no...pretty sure these guys are really fucking evil."

    The "no good or evil" characters arguement is such bs. Most are shades of grey, but Joffrey is objectively evil. Jon, Tyrion, Ned, and Robb are good guys with some flaws between each of them, but they're still totally good guys.

    Joffrey is a product of his circumstance. I mean, he is the product of incest, a mother who convinces him he can do anything he wants, a "father" who hates his mother and spite-fucks whores while getting drunk and fat, and a world that pretty much guarantees that honorable people with power are going to die.

    He does lots of evil things, and he is horribly corrupted... but all that corruption came from the influences that surround him.

    I don't know how many characters will get that level of explanation, but almost nobody comes out of the womb twirling their waxed mustache, and this world has a way of breaking people's will to do good.

    You guys might want to move that conversation to the other thread considering your mentioning people and events that haven't been referenced on the show.

    Ned is a good guy whose results are awful. That's the entire point of Ned. What does that make him?

    I thought it might have been the whole incest thing too, except (again, not a spoiler, but...)
    Spoiler:

    Also, Joffrey's evil actions date as far back as (this IS a real BOOK spoiler)
    Spoiler:

    Basically, simple answer was he had shitty parents.

    But I mostly blame Cersei because holy shit Cersei is a bitch.

    This is by memory, so not 100%: Cersei, Joffrey, The Mountain, Polliver (the interrogator), and I think Jaime was on the list.

    EDIT: Ugh, I forgot Ser Ilyn Payne, the dude who actually chopped off Ned's head. And the Hound. I suck.

    I don't remember hearing Polliver but I fully understand him being on the list.
    "Joffrey. Cersei. Ilyn Payne. The Hound." was the original list (repeated over).
    After the woman begs for food and gets beaten she adds "The Mountain."
