Ok, just saw my DVR caught a 15 min GOT: A Gathering of Shadows teaser - well really a review of S2 -
I have a mental woody. Can't believe S3 is here!!!!
ETA: I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the fact that House Baelish is cursed. We all know about it, but we like to fancy him a Lord of the Vale (temporary at that) via his, what? Stewardship? of The Eyrie...or that he will have Winterfell even (the-Highborn-to-be lil Rob in Jeyne Stark's womb will quash that pipe dream) not to mention his "Masterful" playing of The Game so far...none of it changes the fact that his Seat
(DOOM) lies just off the God's Eye...and this voice from the grave (Her
voice, coincidence?) serves to remind little-lord-Fauntleroy-finger just how dark Black Harran's
shadow still is...
Geez,19. Why this sudden hate for LF?
My new CPT:
LF caused the war.
This spying little shit, rejected by Cat and humiliated by her betrothed, got wind of the hush-hush R+J. He may have even intercepted a raven's letter, or just claimed to have. Knowing how close Brandon and Lyanna were, LF knew Brandon would fly off hell bent for King's Landing if he thought his sister was being held against her will, and the Mad King would have Brandon exiled to the Wall or worse for the accusations against Rhaegar, and the Crown, by proxy. Leaving Cat unwed and available again.
Motive and opportunity.
A forged letter. An false eyewitness account of the abduction. Wouldn't take much to set the events in motion.
I won't say he expected war, that wasn't the result he was looking for.
He didn't get Cat either. He got something better: something he could be good at, something that gave his miserable life purpose.
Clumsy and dangerous, the kidnapping story was.
...it was his first move in The Game.
