Nice, I missed this myself both times I watched it. I love my job to be able to drop everything just for this

Didnt the Tulley's forces account for a substantial portion of Renly's army? Without them how many of Renly's men does Stannis now have?

No, the Tullys are with Robb Stark since they're Stark bannermen and Catelyn (Tully) Stark is mother to the King in the North.

You might be thinking of the Tyrells (Margaery and Loras). Stannis would still have a sizable portion of Renlys men. Many thousands, though not the full 100k Renly was boasting obviously.

I don't believe so, I believe they had some Tyrell men/Baratheon banner men, but I am sure someone can fill in the gaps.

The Tyrell men went home.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

Can someone explain the whole "red god" and the three debts thing to me? Not sure if it just wasn't explained well, or if it was that guys accent, but that whole thing confused me.

Jaquen owed Arya 3 deaths for saving his life and those of his two fellow prisoners

The Red God is the same god who gave Melisandre the queefs.

Jaqen is basically playing Final Destination but changing the targets to satisfy Death.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

Oh okay, I guess this was just part of the whole religions thing that is bound to get a bit confusing. Is it three deaths because Arya saved three of their lives?

I'm not quite sure if they have name checked their gods, but she is the red priestess

Could you explain? I thought Renly had 100,000 troops. Did they all defect before he died? Obviously I missed something.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

Renly had a great host from The Stormlands (Baratheon and their bannermen) and The Reach (Tyrells and their bannermen).

Renly married Margaery Tyrell to strengthen their hold and army. Renly was assassinated and his (Baratheon) men joined his brother Stannis (Baratheon) since Renly wasn't there, Stannis is the most proper one to hold on to.

The Tyrells (Margaery, Renly's new widow and her brother Loras, the Knight of Flowers, Renly's lover) fled back to their home to avoid blame in Renly's death from Stannis.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Ghost of Harrenhal" -- 4/29/12

This really comes down to the concept of the "Seven Kingdoms" of Westeros. Maps with domains will help.

For instance: http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Seven_Kingdoms (though be careful on this site because this is about the books, not the show and much of the non-reference material will contain spoilers). This link and it's direct stuff are safe since it's all about geography and families.

For someone who talks a lot about honor being important, the way Stannis sneakily killed Renly had ZERO honor.

Davos mentioned that to him on the boat.

Davos was going on about the scary sorcery of Melisandre, but Stannis' unwillingness to talk about it at all does indicate that he know it goes against his personal "code" yet he'll still do anything to get the iron throne.

In terms of character traits, Ser Davos is more or less the replacement for Ned Stark.
