You seem to love Sansan as much as me and I have no one to discuss it with. :p I’m rewatching the first series and I noticed that after Ned is beheaded, Sandor casually picks up his head and shows it off to the crowd. :o I didn’t notice this the first time round. I haven’t read the books yet, so does he do this in the books too? It seemed odd because the next time we see him, he’s wiping blood off Sansa’s face. It’s a head fook.”
i want to say it was ser boros who picked up ned’s head in the books, but i could be wrong… maybe ask ‘butterfly to confirm..
I re-read the extracts to check and couldn’t find anything… nobodysuspectsthebutterfly, would you happen to know that?
It’s Janos Slynt in the books.
“Ser Balon Swann, of Stonehelm in the Red Watch,” came the herald’s cry. Wide white wings ornamented Ser Balon’s greathelm, and black and white swans fought on his shield. “Morros of House Slynt, heir to Lord Janos of Harrenhal.”
“Look at that upjumped oaf,” Joff hooted, loud enough for half the yard to hear. Morros, a mere squire and a new-made squire at that, was having difficulty managing lance and shield. The lance was a knight’s weapon, Sansa knew, the Slynts lowborn. Lord Janos had been no more than commander of the City Watch before Joffrey had raised him to Harrenhal and the council.
I hope he falls and shames himself, she thought bitterly. I hope Ser Balon kills him. When Joffrey proclaimed her father’s death, it had been Janos Slynt who seized Lord Eddard’s severed head by the hair and raised it on high for king and crowd to behold, while Sansa wept and screamed.
