** 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.

** 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.

* MoralDissonance: At one point Ned, while acting as Hand, sentences Gregor Clegane to death without a trial. No one comments on how messed up this is.



* SelectiveObliviousness: Sansa refuses to see [[HotGuysAreBastards Joffrey]] as anything but noble and gallant, and Cersei as TheHighQueen, even after witnessing the former maliciously bully and threaten to kill an innocent peasant boy for sport, and the latter order Sansa's wolf butchered for something Arya's wolf (rightly) did. [[spoiler: It takes [[TheCaligula Joffrey]] ordering her father's execution for her to finally see their true colors.]]

* BreakHerHeartToSaveHer: After Nymeria attacks Joffrey, Arya knows the wolf will be killed if the Lannisters get hold of her, so she throws rocks at her to get her to run off into the woods.

* NotSoDifferent: Lysa and Cersei. Cersei is quickly shown to be a bitter, petty, paranoid tyrant who assumes anyone who isn't a fawning YesMan is out to get her, smothers and spoils her eldest son rotten, and inflicts swift DisproportionateRetribution on anyone she perceives as wronged her family in any way. Once Catlyn gets to the Eyrie, she quickly learns that her sister Lysa has become petty and paranoid, constantly believes that anyone who gives advice she doesn't want to hear is against her, has spoiled and smothered her son so much he still breast-feeds at age ''six'', and leads such a blatant KangarooCourt against a man merely ''accused'' of killing her husband that even his accuser, Cat, thinks it unjust. Oh, and Lysa and her son enjoy carrying out executions as much as Cersei and Joffrey do. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that both Lysa and Cersei arranged to get their lord husbands killed with wine.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheScapegoat: Cersei demands to have Sansa's wolf put down in place of Arya's wolf, and Sansa chooses to blame Arya instead of the queen who ordered the unjust slaughter. (Or Joffrey for picking the fight against Arya and Nymeria, or herself for lying about Arya's and Nymeria's guilt, which gave Cersei cause to call for a wolf execution in the first place.)
* SelectiveObliviousness: Sansa refuses to see [[HotGuysAreBastards Joffrey]] as anything but noble and gallant, and Cersei as TheHighQueen, even after witnessing the former maliciously bully and threaten to kill an innocent peasant boy for sport, and the latter order Sansa's wolf butchered for something Arya's wolf (rightly) did.

* CycleOfRevenge: [[spoiler:Mirri Maz Duur bides her time to get her revenge for her rape at the hands of the Dothraki, and eventually does so by killing Daenerys's unborn child in the womb. This is especially unjust, because Dany had rescued her from her rapists and the child was innocent. Dany doesn't take it well, and gets her own revenge by burning Mirri Maz Duur alive as a sacrifice to hatch her dragons.]]
