There's probably no deeper meaning to it Podrick is pretty much seen as the comedic sidekick. In both the books and the TV show he is the unfortunate recipient of plenty of witty quips (mostly by Tyrion), even the fandom have picked him up as a funny meme of sort ("I blame Pod" is very widespread among fans). Also, the incident with the whores never ...

There are a lot of answers that draw knowledge from the Books, but from what I can gather the TV series is carving its own narrative. As an answer from the TV series only; Varys agrees to help Tyrion escape, and expects this to happen to schedule. When Tyrion delays this, by paying his father a visit, he changes the circumstances of the plan, including ...

You might not have watched it yet, but in the season finale Podrick went to the courtyard to tell Tyrion there was a family meeting going on, and a couple of girls giggled and said, "Ooh, that’s him!", indicating that his reputation is spreading by word of mouth. I think the in-universe answer is supposed to be yes, Podrick really is a good lover.

I'd guess the movie's motive for not introducing the McKee subplot is because that was only a minor subplot of the book. And re-telling a book story in movie form, when you've got to get all the key details on screen in just 2 or 3 hours, means you have to omit many minor details. The core story of The Great Gatsby is about Gatsby and the world he lived in, ...

The article's only piece of evidence is the anagram, which strikes me as interesting but not conclusive. Rather than M being Silva's real mother, I think a key element of the story is that Silva and Bond had virtually identical past relationships with M: both Silva and Bond had been orphaned or abandoned as children, leading to each of them being selected ...

To begin with, Cersei was never very loyal to Jamie, or considered him "the one". I say so because Cersei was quite taken with being the Queen and quite readily agreed to marry Robert. Now, don't picture the fat Robert showcased in the TV Series. In his prime Robert was a famed and very handsome warrior. From A Game of Thrones, Chapter 4 In his youth ...

So in a show sense, there isn't much to go on until Season 5 airs in 2015 (and if I can help it, when I will revisit this question). There can be some speculation as you said that he might be implicated in releasing Tyrion, being a past friend of him and Jamie is essentially immune (in a sense) to Cersei's madness. However in the books:

From what I remember from the Novel, Carlo is in some kind of trouble with the police when he comes across Sonny, who uses his connections to give him some kind of sanctuary, and eventually absolution. It's quite ambiguous what Carlo has done... At this point there are no hostilities towards him, so no reason not to invite him to a party: he's not a Cop, ...

It isn't neccesary... it's symbolic. Spiderman has had his webslingers destroyed by Connors, so he only has his adhesive abilities. In one hand he is holding the antidote, so he can't let go of that. When the tower collapses, he is thrown violently downwards towards the building. The only way he could survive the trauma of impact is to roll, and the ...

The Eye is the window to the soul... The mirror allows Rust to 'see' his own soul, to meditate and focus on his own consciousness and gain prescience, even enlightenment... internally, of course. Cohle is a vehement athiest, but he still believes in a higher level of consciousness: whether borne of delusion, drug induced hallucination or otherwise. A ...

From Wikipedia, derived from an interview with the series creators in Entertainment Weekly: Due to the series' cancellation, the final episode ended with an unresolved cliffhanger, revealing that Digger, John's close friend, was in fact the true leader of the Phoenix Organization. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series creators Brandon ...

I'll try to answer this question, although spoilers will be rife. Who does Varys serve? Remember back to his conversation with Ned Stark in Season 1: Eddard Stark: "Tell me something, Varys. Who do you truly serve?" Varys: "The realm, my lord. Someone must." Varys may or may not be lying. We don't know. Up until now though, we know that he is ...

Cersei as a character is obsessed with sex as a controlling mechanism. In the show, we only see Lancel Lannister. He is a weak willed character and easily bullied and manipulated. He is also very cowardly. Someone like him would never have had the courage to participate in the plot to kill King Robert. So Cersei uses her sex appeal to subjugate him to her ...

In an interview (2006) Dominic Purcell, the actor who played the titular character, had this to say: Apparently I was the messiah returned. [The Pheonix group] were working for the Vatican. ... The Catholics. They didn't want it to be revealed that the true Christ had returned. From another interview (2007) with the actor: Well, John Doe was ...

No, according to Law and Order’s Serena Southerlyn Comes Out on Her Way Out the character came out to Law & Order's audience in that scene. All of the Law & Order series are known for giving out very few details about the main character's personal lives, and this was no exception. There were very few details during her run on the show regarding ...

This is, for me, the combination of a number of factors, each one beneficial to Cersei: Leverage Cersei weaponizes her sexuality, but only privately (unlike say Margeary Tyrell, who is more openly sexual and seductive). By engaging in a tryst with Lancel, she is able to manipulate and control him, guiding his actions. Boys are obviously notorious for ...
