    Yes, I remember that she is insane. I hate when shows make me NOT want to see naked breasts!

    Is Blackfish a crow? he seemed dressed in the all-black. But then again, black and grey seem to be the only colors these people know (and no flowers, damn it!).

    I have to admit that being a non-booker and with the long layoff, I have no idea who some of these people are, like the guy who spent a lot of time with Lady Stark this episode.

    It was her father's brother. That was Blackfish (I have no idea what his real name is). The boy who kept missing the boat with the flaming arrows is Cat's brother (I'm assuming). I didn't know she had a brother. I assume that brother is now the Lord of House Tully.

    There are too many dark haired, scraggly beard, disheveled clothes wearing white guys on this show. They tend to look alike after a while. Maybe some of them should wear a brightly colored hat or something so I can keep them straight. Or name tags. :)

    There was another woman there that looked like Cat. One more sister?

    Unless she had a speaking role, I have no idea (have not read the books). The only way I know some names is because I always have CC on for this show!

    At first I thought it's the crazy sister, but this one wasn't ugly enough.

    There's been a few times when I'd read the book and suddenly realize, "That's who that was on the show!" :)

    This!! Hahaha.

    I was coming here today, while I love the show still, I'm at the point where there are SO many characters, I get TOTALLY lost. And very often they introduce characters that you have no idea who they are. I know all the main characters from the first season. After that, I know some of the second season characters. The new ones from this season? Totally gone. I'm completely confused about anything going on north of the wall. I'm sure at some point that is going to be important to the overall story, but for now, I just don't care about any of them.

    I guess I missed something (I have to start watching this show when I'm more alert, but the problem is, I don't want to watch with my daughter around), but to me, it looked like they were chopping Jaime in the back, not his hand, but of course the hand makes more sense. I'm confused by his captors, are they loyal to the Starks or to Tywin? I assumed the Starks, until they took the girl to the back to be raped.

    They are loyal to the Starks and are taking him back to Robb. As the lead guy said, his instructions were to find Jaime. Nothing was said about the girl. So the girl was fair game. Heck, given that she was with him and helped him escape, that gave them double reasons to rape her!

    I guess if they found what's his name's butt attractive, they'd rape anything.

    BTW, isn't Robb going to be pissed they maimed Jamie? I bet he'd prefer to exchange him for his sisters with their limbs still attached.

    It's bad casting if they can't differentiate the characters. I can now safely say "All white people look the same". :)

    Is there any reason why we don't see more minority actors? Did the author go into details about the characters' skin color and race?

    We did see a Giant, some White Walkers, dragons, etc. They're the minorities in that world.

    The Blackfish is named Bryndon Tully. He is the uncle to Catelyn and her two siblings, Lysa and Edmure. Edmure was the loser who could not get his arrow on the mark. And yes, Edmure is now head of House Tully. He is also Robb's uncle, but Robb is his king. Hence why Robb got to talk down to him.

    There's racial diversity, but it tends to be by continent (as on Earth, before easy transportation). Black people in the Summer Isles (we've seen a few of them), Middle Easterners and Mongolians in the area Dani's been hanging out, and there's an unknown civilization to the east of there that I assume will turn out to be Asianesque.

    Since Westeros is essentially (maybe) Great Britain, it is pretty white. There are certainly other skin colors, but those are seen in other locations (ie, Salador Saan the pirate, or the Dothraki). Just as if you were in Britain in the 1500's, you would need to travel to see other skin colors.
