Rory is BRILLIANT
In the cave scene season 3, episode 4. Sandor has no problem telling every one what’s what to their faces. He doesn’t have any trouble with standing up for himself and telling them all he’s had no part in raping little girls and killing babies. And then Arya brings up Mycah. He half turns to answer her where he directly faced everyone else when denying his crimes. He knows he’s guilty and accepts it but still has to face her a bit to act like it doesn’t bother him. But when he gives his REASONS for doing it HE TURNS AWAY! He won’t face Beric or Arya. He doesn’t believe the words he’s saying and can’t say them face to face. Everything else in this scene he says directly to the person’s face who is accusing him. Everything accept two lines.
“I was Joffrey’s sworn shield. The boy attacked the prince.” and “Not my place to question princes.”
(and you all already know how much LOVE how his voice completely changes when he delivers that, “Not my place to question princes” line right?”
I was having a lot of difficulty believing that Sandor feels deep remorse for killing Mycah … he’s a soldier. Surely he’d killed children before in the line of duty? I don’t think he enjoyed it but I didn’t think it affected him all that much. Not as much as others seem to think. But Rory is making me think otherwise.
