You know, but I was a little disappointed by the episode because in ASOS Oberyn was present when the gifts were given, and defended Tyrion when Joff scolded the book he gave for a present, and then later (or was it before that?) Oberyn, Tyrion and Sansa were having a discussion about history, and they cut that all out. And that’s very sad because right now Oberyn is just shaping out to be a random representation of house Martell’s interests and not an actual character, however minor he might be, because we don’t really seem him doing anything except talking about revenge.
You know, when Joff said to Tyrion after Tyrion gave him that history book, “when the war is done, we shall find a time for wisdom” or something like that, I thought for a moment that D&D wanted to demonstrate that Joff actually isn’t that bad and he can even be a good guy when he wants too, thus making us a little disappointed he did at that day, but then Joff teared the books apart and like lol nope they just want to bring our hatred of him to a maximum and just then kill him.
