So I'm rewatching an episode daily (started on the 6th of Feburary) so that I'll have seen the entire first seven seasons again right before the 8th season starts. And wow isn't the timing perfect? Ned's head flies on Valentine's Day XD. Amazingly romantic, especially how it shows how much Joffrey cares for Sansa. If only I had a gf/bf to watch this incredibly romantic scene with...
Why didn't Tywin Lannister make a move for the Iron Throne? Joffrey, Tommen and even Cersei could've been done away with. I do think he was too proud to spill the beans on Cersei and Jamie's little secret, and he could've done away with the Baratheon brothers easy enough.
He was actually running things anyway. I just find it odd that he never made a play for the throne.
