    great article! Howard should discuss this..

    Both Jaime and Cersei are clearly despicable in those moments. Later, though, we see a more humane side of Jaime when he rescues a woman, who had been an enemy, from rape. All of a sudden we don't know what to feel about Jaime.
    One of the things I wanted to explore with Jaime, and with so many of the characters, is the whole issue of redemption. When can we be redeemed? Is redemption even possible? I don't have an answer. But when do we forgive people? You see it all around in our society, in constant debates. Should we forgive Michael Vick? I have friends who are dog-lovers who will never forgive Michael Vick. Michael Vick has served years in prison; he's apologized. Has he apologized sufficiently? Woody Allen: Is Woody Allen someone that we should laud, or someone that we should despise? Or Roman Polanski, Paula Deen. Our society is full of people who have fallen in one way or another, and what do we do with these people? How many good acts make up for a bad act? If you're a Nazi war criminal and then spend the next 40 years doing good deeds and feeding the hungry, does that make up for being a concentration-camp guard? I don't know the answer, but these are questions worth thinking about. I want there to be a possibility of redemption for us, because we all do terrible things. We should be able to be forgiven. Because if there is no possibility of redemption, what's the answer then? [Martin pauses for a moment.] You've read the books?

    I haven't read the books, but at least on the show he was always more of a misunderstood character rather than pure evil. His legend of him slaying the Mad King made him more evil than his ultimate motives for slaying Aerys Targaryen. And he was very honorable to Brienne.

    Howard says the Khaleesi isn't hot anymore. But that's because he's a homosexual..

    My guess is Gary tried to book her on the show and she told him to fuck off because she is Team Amanda Peet (her husband is one of the producers of GOT).

    so Beth's cunty ways has cost Howard the small chance of booking one of the most popular casts in TV history..

    sure

    Amanda was the star in a movie called Whipped.. where Beth was pretty much an glorified extra..

    Brian Von Holt was also in that movie

    Brian had been fucking Beth for a few years...

    Brian dumped Beth for Amanda

    Amanda probably handed Beth a coat at some point thinking she was the hired help while on set

    Beth then had to settle for Howard
