*** Likewise The Hound's point about knights really being nothing more than vicious killers as opposed to noble heroes is pretty much on the nose. Especially when you have scenes of knights violently murdering children and raping.

** [[spoiler: A extreme example but as smarmy and unbearable as he may be, Walder Frey reason for turning on Robb does makes sense. Robb did break his deal with him. When Catelyn Stark begs for Robb's life by giving him her word, Frey is quick to point why would he trust a stark's word when they have already broken a promise in the past ]]
** Rickard Karstark is not exactly wrong in his criticism over Robb's leadership considering him much long term damage was done by Robb's poor choices.

** The Hound is coarse and mocking when he sees Arya practising with her rapier, but he proves absolutely right that it stands no chance against even a mediocre swordsman in full plate. He is also right about the flaws in [[spoiler: Brienne]]'s plan to protect the Stark girls by finding them "someplace safe."

** Stannis Baratheon, while a perfect example of JerkassHasAPoint throughout the show, ultimately crosses the line when he sacrifices the sweetest character in the series. Worst of all, it was his own ''daughter''!

** The ''Histories and Lore'' bonus material explains that Harrenhal has always had a sinister repute and that every family to hold it has met with misfortune. [[spoiler: This holds mostly true even in the present day: Janos Slynt was banished, Lord Tywin was murdered, Gregor Clegane was critically wounded, Robb Stark was murdered, and Locke had his neck broken. Only Roose Bolton and Littlefinger remain alive.]]

* GratuitousRape: The show is rather famous for its FanService, but it's also infamous for its copious quantities of rape. Sometimes it transforms consenting scenes into rapes (Daenerys and Drogo's first time, or Jaime and Cersei in Breaker of Chains), or just throws in extra rapes for the hell of it. They have a producer who prides himself on being the FanService producer, who likes to push for extra rape. For the fans.
