    He was neither. He was simply the only honourable person playing the game, which he didn't want to be playing in the first place. He saw the easy ways to do things and he found them distasteful and held out hope that he could change things; Ned remains (for me, at least) one of the best characters in the show and the books, because he knew what he was doing, and he even knew it would likely end his life early, but he did it anyway because he wanted to lead by example.

    I was listening to an audio book of game of thrones and ned basically said that mourmont should have been excecuted for his crime which git him exiled. Just woah, it makes me wonder what type of leader would he have been

    It's been a minute since I've read AGoT so I've forgotten what Jorah's crime was. Was he exiled for getting involved in the slave trade?

    You mean why he got exiled from Westeros right? I believe he sold poachers on his land to slave traders?

    I believe illegal in the Seven Kingdoms.

    Correct, I think the quote was:

    Robert:He is a spy
    Ned: He should be a corupes

    In the context of that world and in the context of Ned's character it makes sense though. The death penalty is a thing and it's a thing that Ned treats very seriously. What Jorah did was remove the rights of another human being to be treated as such by selling them into slavery where their lives meant nothing; in Ned's mind that meant the punishment for that act should mirror it - Jorah had forfeit the lives of other "men" (I can't remember, but expect they were all men) and thus, when it was discoved he had done that, his life was also forfeit. Ned doesn't relish in that though. He's doesn't like killing, he just see's it as a necessary evil when evil itself needs to be dealt with.

    Less than a month to before Season 7 of Game of Thrones start. This second Trailer promoting the season was so kick ass, and the music is superb.

    RaiZ-R is right, Ned ruled with the hand of one of the North, and was well aware, ahead of time that he'd do poorly in the South. Also Rickon predicted that neither Eddard, Catlyn, or Robb would return once they left Winterfell right in the midst of Book 1, the green dreams set up that those characters weren't going to survive. Regardless Ned wasn't made for the underhanded, cut-throat politics of the South. Still he did what needed to be done, as always. Thats who Eddard Stark is. Unfortunately the worst thing he did was confront Cersei with the truth about her children, ensuring that Robert was killed off before he could ever tell him. Still what's done is done. Besides Little Finger and Lysa are directly responsible for what went down between the Starks and Lannisters in Season 1, though Joffrey tried to have Bran killed. Ned tried to do the right thing it just made him a lot of enemies, and Little Finger ever the opportunist, defected entirely out of chaos breeds opportunity, and a chance at revenge.

    Re: Game of Thrones Discussion Thread (POTENTIAL SPOILERS INSIDE!!!)

    Also Ned's response to Jorahs misdeeds, is every bit the reaction and mentality of the men of the North. Ser Jorah is from a Northern house, Jorah did wrong, rather than make him any sort of deal or way out like a person in a position of power might grant in the South. For taking away the autonomy of the people he sold, Ned's form of justice and response is to want his head, not because he's blood thirsty but because justice must be done

    Re: Game of Thrones Discussion Thread (POTENTIAL SPOILERS INSIDE!!!)

    Season 7 bitches first Episode titled "Dragonstone"

    Top moments from this Episode for me, and probably the best scene for me of them all is Arya Stark being Walder Frey and completely destroy the Frey House with Poison. I was like YEAH GET THOSE FUCKERS kill them all. Arya is starting to become one of my favorite characters on the show, love how this girl is doing her down thing. Good to have a killer in the Stark house, she'll be a even greater asset when the family gets back together.

    Jon Snow in his role being the leader saying I'm not going to kill off a whole family from one person's mistake. Jon doesn't want any more wars, he wants to keep his numbers together because he's looking to fight the White Walkers and he's going to need every human for battle. Interesting that Sansa was kinda wanting him to do the opposite, but Jon vs Sansa in life experience isn't even close it's Jon have faith Sansa. I do like how Sansa is putting Little Finger in his place, she knows he likes to play the game of getting in people's heads to do his bidding. Sansa knows he wants to be with her, I see Little Finger somewhere down the line getting burnt because dude doesn't know what is a chill button is. Lady Lyanna Mormont still the boss of this motherfucker, this girl when Game of Thrones has a big future in her. I hope we see more scenes from her down the line.

    Fire God has plans for the Hound, he saw visions of the future I believe I wonder what's going on with that going forward? Sighs at those Sam scenes, but I guess he's only important to this point to get the Dragon Glass to get to Jon Snow to kill off Walkers. I thought he knew about that though, so were going to get some kind of Lord of the Rings journey for him I bet?

    Euron changed his character lolz just like that though. He wants to have Cersei in his bed, and team up with her and lol at him saying kill your brother is fun you should try it. Bran finally made it to the Wall thank goodness your skills will be needed for the world to survive.

    Dany finally reaching her ancestral home good for her. She we begin, Dany hopefully you figure out fast that the Throne you want isn't worth trying to have, when you see White Walkers knocking on your door. Still a good Episode, not great, but I have faith next week's Episode is going to be even better.

    Yeah I think that's the worst casting ever on this show. Ed Sheeran playing Ed Sheeran in armor. Good to see Jim Broadbent and Thomas Turgoose appear on the show though.

    Please be joking, gents. I am mostly unfamiliar with Sheeran besides for that song about being in love with your body. Probably because I try to avoid the radio and "regular" television like the plague. Personally, I thought he did great and I really enjoyed his whimsical singing, would love to hear more fantasy genre tunes from that guy, and honestly would love to see the character again sometime.

    The only conceivably negative thing about it is that they cast a popular musician in Game of Thrones, and really, what's the harm when he's used right? Dude looked and sang the part so I dunno why anyone would be miffed about it.

    At least the scene seemed to shift away from Sheeran to Turgoose, who I think I even noticed in the background before realising that guy was Ed Sheeran.

    Oh come now. My legit pick for worst casting ever goes to the Sand Snakes. They were terribly written to begin with but better actresses could have made it work in my mind. This cameo was not only inoffensive but made for a great scene. S my Valyrian D.

    If Ed Sheeran was a true Game of Thrones fan, he would've rather been stabbed in the taint or some other gruesome death than sing.
