Re: SPOILER *all five books* THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)
Again, they lived in the north, not the south. Why teach Sansa about shit she'll most likely never encounter? The Tyrells are different. The Lannisters are different.
But yeah Cat should've totally taught Sansa about southern politics because Robert Baratheon was going to be killed and then Ned was going to be executed and then full civil war was going to break out. Fucking Cat you moron, how could you not see all this coming?
Let's say she does teach Sansa about King's Landing and Highgarden and all that stuff. What is she going to do at age 11 even with that knowledge? It wouldn't have mattered. Littlefinger and Tyrion would've looked after her regardless and Joffrey would've still been a piece of shit. Her main problem was her naiveté and delusional world in which she believed. Cersei STILL suffers from delusions.
In other words, even with political savvy, you can't expect an 11 year old to be the Queen of Thorns, and Cat could not have been the one to teach her to be anyway. Littlefinger on the other hand...
