From Larapu2000 in the general Stark thread:
Your logic is unassailable, Cat does deserve her own thread.
Why doesn't Lady Catherine get her own thread? Girl has got it going ON. She fends off a knife attack WITH HER BARE HANDS, she conducts a CSI investigation into her son's fall, she gets in and out of King's Landing without getting killed, she rallies about 500 men at a TAVERN to arrest Tyrion Lannister, her teenage son takes her advice, and she would totally kick Cersei's (sp?) ass in a cage match.
Not to mention the fact that she landed the smoking hot Ned (rowr, Sean Bean) and satisfied him enough in the bedroom to have 5 children.
Put this broad on the throne. I'd swear my fealty.
I wasn't sure about the actress at first, but she's played Cat with some real steel. I can easily see her being a worthy and equal partner to a man like Ned Stark, and she's had a lot to deal with in the first season. A crazy sister, a captured husband and daughters, a crippled son, eldest son becoming a warrior, the list goes on.
I do think her hasty reaction to seize Tyrion was a biiiiiig mistake, one which was the spark that lit things off for the coming civil war, but I've come to respect her strength and appreciate the performance.
P.S I thought for literally five minutes but couldn't think of an appropriate pithy sentence for the subtitle(It's too early). Post suggestions for a new one below!
