    Olenna Tyrell, for older generations also known as Emma Peel! ;-)

    The most constricting part of Game of Thrones comment threads is suppressing spoiler talk. I want to open my mouth about how Lady Olenna’s machinations obstruct others but if I did, someone might institute a gag order. It’s simply stifling.

    “..he’s very good at knocking men off horses with a stick, it doesn’t make him wise…” I love that line.

    I love (to hate) Tywin to pieces but I think it’s selling The Queen of Thorns short to say she’s the female Tywin Lannister. I think she’s much smarter because she is not blinded by arrogance. Just you know… extra sass for good measure but she knows who the players are and she doesn’t assume they are insignificant like Tywin does too often.
