    Correct.

    The guy killed with Ned outside LittleFinger's brothel was Jory.

    Just realized how screwed Snow is. The only two people who knew he's in deep cover is the Commander and the guy who he "killed" last season. Does Sam know? 'Cause he's the only person that can clear him from being labeled a traitor.

    Robb is a "traitor". He has no say. Brann and Rickun are presumed dead. I don't see any male Starks left to ask.

    Agreed. Furthermore, I'm not even convinced Joffrey likes women (unless he thinks they're evil schemers like he is). Put her head on a pike next to her father's, perhaps, but no evidence that he wants her as a mistress.

    When the did commander learn Snow was under cover? I thought it was only half-hand who knew.

    I do think Snow could probably explain his situation and convince the Commander if he ever gets the opportunity. The night's watch is in disarray, it might be best for all involved if Manse Rayder assumed control of the wall. I think Jon Snow knows this.

    Just a few of my uninformed conclusions. I have not read the books.

    IMHO, Littlefinger doesn't want Sansa for Sansa's sake. He wants to "take" Sansa to punish Cat for rejecting him and ruining Sansa's future is a bonus. At some point, Tyrion's promise to Shea to protect Sansa is going to pull him into the scenario.

    Is the wizard in the box something new that Varys has just come into possession of or has he been keeping his as a pet for a while? I can't imagine being able to keep something like that quiet this whole time.

    The North = Snow
    The Iron Islands = Pyke
    The Riverlands = Rivers
    The Vale = Stone
    The Westerlands = Hill
    The Reach = Flowers

    Jory! YES! that was the name.

    So it was someone else. And then they made it worse by casting a different actor.

    That wasn't Beric Dondarrion. That was one of Ned's lieutenants from Winterfell who came down with him to be part of the Hand's guards.

    Beric Dondarrion is/was a knight and bannermen of House Baratheon. After the big tournament in Season 1, he stuck around King's Landing, and then was ordered by Ned Stark (who, as the Hand, was handling the King's business whilst Robert was off on his fatal hunting trip) to go and capture the Mountain (Gregor Clegane) who was raping and pillaging the villages of the Riverlands.

    Wonder how long it's going to take before Jorah Mormont finds out his father, the Lord Commander is dead and what effect is it going to have on him when he's done??

    Dany certainly does get more than her share of Really Cool Scenes.

    I'd be happy if they got rid of every other storyline except hers!

    This is the first time I've felt any sympathy for Theon. He's finally figured out that it wasn't that bad in Winterfell and he screwed up by going with his nasty father and sister. He should have known it was a fake when they said she was going to rescue him.

    Yeah, once Craster is dead, Gilly and her baby aren't really in any danger there unless the Crows gone wild would rape her. And we know there was food around. Seems like he could have at least gotten some supplies together.

    How would it be good for the wildlings to control the wall? And do they even want to or do they just want to get around/over/through it.

    That is exactly what would have happened to Gilly if she had not hightailed it out of there. So yes, Gilly was in danger. Also, Sam was in danger from some of the men. They both needed to get out of there quickly.

    Well, to be fair, he felt that way because he thought it was his father torturing him and his father that was out to get him. Yes, he also thought his father humiliated him when he asked him to raid some fishing villages, but the main source of angst was because of the lies the guy was feeding him.

    I have no sympathy for Theon. Ned treated him well and Robb and John treated him as a brother, so he decides on his own to sack the family's castle.

    He doesn't get a do-over. Let him die in pain.

    Not exactly. I can remember at least 1 instance where Robb very directly reminds him that he is not a Stark. Remember the scene when Bran was attacked by the wildlings? Theon was telling Robb of his duty to defend his father, and Robb told him "It's not your duty because it's not your house". That's what caused Theon to leave angrily, causing Robb to confront the Wildlings on his own (initially).

    So yes, they generally treated him pretty nice, but they probably fairly regularly took their opportunities to remind him he wasn't a Stark.

    Loras wasn't acting for the benefit of House Tyrell when he was secretly getting it on with Renly.

    "I wonder what happens when the non-existent bumps into the decrepit." Awesome line.
