* DeadlyEnvironmentPrison: The Arryns' cells have only three walls...with a 600-foot drop off the side of a mountain on the fourth side. [[EnfantTerrible The Lord of the Eyrie]] also tries to force the imprisoned [[spoiler:Tyrion]] to leave their castle via the Moon Door (again, with a 600-foot drop on the other side.) When [[spoiler:Tyrion]] manages to get pardoned, Lady Lysa Arryn manages to do Death By Freedom ''again'' (he can now leave the castle via the road full of shadowcats and hostile tribes.)

** When King Robert arrives at Winterfell, he and Ned have a long discussion about Jaime Lannister becoming Warden of the East. After that, it's never mentioned again for the entire series. Ned acts like being a Warden is a big deal, but while the titles of the various Wardens are sometimes mentioned, the idea that there is any sort of political power associated with the title(s) is never suggested.

[[spoiler: It takes [[TheCaligula Joffrey]] ordering her father's execution for her to finally see their true colors.]]
