* InfertilityAngst: Daenerys is told she'll never again be able to bear children after she sacrifices her unborn son to save her husband's life. She later claims her dragons are the only children she'll ever have. After they meet, Jon asks her the obvious question if she had considered that the person who told her this (who murdered Dany's first husband) might not have been exactly truthful.

* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Sansa and Arya Stark. Sansa is popular, courtly, and fashionable, but ThinksLikeARomanceNovel. Arya lacks manners and polish, but is more StreetSmart. You cannot leave them alone without both finding ways to hurt the other -- and then feel sorry about it later.

You cannot leave them alone without both finding ways to hurt the other -- and then feel sorry about it later. However, [[spoiler: four seasons apart and many years of harsh life lessons leave both of them the wiser and they treasure each other properly when they are reunited. They do make use of their reputation of having hated each other as children to out-manipulate a plot-master.]]

** After threatening to GroinAttack Joffrey, Tyrion engages in some SelfDeprecation in an attempt to pass it off as a bad joke. ''Nobody'' is fooled, but its enough of a face-saver to diffuse the situation.

* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Lancel Lannister is perhaps the dimmest of the Lannisters, and despite his {{Jerkass}} tendencies, it's hard not to feel sorry for him considering how Robert treats him... and then how Cersei treat him. Hell, how ''everyone'' treats him.

* ImmigrantPatriotism: Varys is a Lysene immigrant who professes to be the only man who truly serves TheKingdom itself rather than money, power, or any particular faction. His secret meeting with Daenerys' patron Illyrio in "The Wolf and the Lion" makes the truth of this somewhat ambiguous.
