Episode 2 "The Lion and the Rose" (Spoilers)

Has the show revealed who sent the guy who tried to kill Bran? If not, why do you think they did not include the Valyrian steel gift quote by Joff. It would have taken six seconds. :?:

No, they didn't show it.

My thought is that it would be too confusing to make that reveal without then giving Joffs reasons for the action. And it's sort of impossible to convey Joffs reasons for the action in a TV medium, unless Joff admits his reasons aloud, which would never happen, or if someone like Tyrion suspects it and explains his suspicion to someone else, which takes a while. I suppose they could have just included the quotes and let it be done, but it had also been 30 episodes since the incident even happened, which means they'd have to put that in the intro recap...

The show might even change who did it for their own purposes, if they want to, or most likely they will just leave it an open-ended mystery.

I've been wondering this myself, whether the show will ever provide an answer (or at least clues for an answer) to this incident, or whether it will just be a loose thread, one of those things for people to speculate on but never know for sure...
