Trial By Fire: Game of Thrones

Last night's episode seriously needed to be longer. It went by way to fast, and it was so good. First, let me start off by stating how much I've missed my favorite Imp! Tyrion has been locked away, for a crime he didn't commit, and awaiting trial. Well, said trial has begun, and he is PISSED!!! It was so gratifying watching his anger build and build, then.....rage!!! As he shouts in front of everyone..., “I wish I was the monster you all think I am,” followed by him admission that though he did not kill Joffrey, he wished he had been the one to do so and eludes to fact that he'd gladly trade his life to to see each lord and lady poisoned as well.
And Shae, to betray Tyrion like that, with that false testimony, made me so angry. So who put her up to that and why? What will she get out of it, given that Tyrion made sure she would be safe. Why come back, or did she ever leave?
After learning last week that Littlefinger has been behind just about every major event since the beginning, equally Varys is playing his game of chess. Those two are always behind every move, plotting and planting seeds with whoever they come into contact with. I guess we just have to wait and see what their ultimate motive will be.
Back to the trial, Grand Maester Pycelle, also spits out his lies against Tyrion. And he shows the necklace that Sansa was wearing which held the poison that ultimately killed Joffrey. However, last time we saw that necklace, Littlefinger was on his boat showing Sansa what was in the necklace. So how did Pycelle get the necklace, or how many poisoned necklaces are there?
Even though the trial was the focal point of last nights episode, I need to address the sadistic (which is an understatement) Ramsey Snow. First off, shirtless and bloody, he looked kinda hot (my opinion), then bathing Reek (formally Theon Greyjoy) as reward for his loyalty....hmmmm.....Lastly, Ramsey asks Reek to pretend he's someone else in order to help him out...and who does he want Reek to pretend to be, none other than Theon Greyjoy. I'm curious to see how this is going to play out. One thing is for sure, Ramsay is the master of control and manipulation.
