    Same. Both are also attractive where I don't think Theon is at all.

    Robb is Disney's Prince Charming. Theon is Quasimodo without the hump. Where's the confusion?

    Upon opening the box, Varys says, "Hello, my old friend. It's been a long time." Sounds like he just came into possession.

    Oh yeah, they mix me up to.

    I sometimes feel I need to be watching a pop-up video version where the first time most charactors appear in an episode it pops up a little "you last saw them doing X at Y", or "she's only been talked about, not seen, before this", or even "he's totally new, stop trying to rack your brain for info on him"

    Maybe the wizard is gagged with Varys's ballsack.

    As half-brothers they should look alike. I was actually rather surprised at how well they cast that that the brothers would look so similar.

    Next on GoT: Varys ships the crate off to the X cross guys for final enjoyment and disposal.

    Some of that kind of info will show up on the HBOGo frames. Not really pop-up video style, which would be so sweet! but it will give you a bit of reference.
    Thanks to Danterner for pointing out this little watcher tool. :up:

    I don't think they are half-brothers, but I haven't read the books. I think Jon Snow is a Baratheon.

    Umm.... I have not read the books, and have only watched the show, but I feel I should probably spoiler my response to this....

    Are you sure you want to read this?
    Are you really sure you want to read this?
    How do you know that they are half-brothers? That has been implied by certain characters, but we really know nothing of the mother; and the father, Ned Stark, has never actually said that Jon Snow is his son. He's only said that "you are my blood", which could mean that he is related, but not actually his own son.

    Why would you think that?

    He is Ned's son from another woman. Ned even talked about it with the king when they were alone. There was never a hint of Ned taking the blame for him. And it's not like the guy had a problem with having bastards!

    Robb and Jon Snow are half-brothers. At this point, it's a complete and undisputed fact.

    I don't think that anything was stated that made it as complete and undisputed as you seem to recall.

    How so?

    Ned said he was his. Ned and the king, on the way to King's Landing, talked about the war, the girl Ned banged, and Jon Snow being the baby. Ned and Cat, on different occasions and to each other, talked about Ned coming back from the war with Jon Snow. Ned's brother and all the Stark boys and girls have stated on several occasions that Jon is Ned's son and a bastard.

    How unequivocal do you need?

    I understand what you're saying and why you think that. I just don't agree that Ned admitted as much as you think he did but I tend to be a stickler for exactly what people said vs. what can easily be inferred (but perhaps shouldn't be). So I could be wrong.

    To be clear, I am in no way arguing that Ned hasn't passed Jon off as his bastard. But there a many times when things are said that indicate that things are not as clear cut as that story. I don't believe that is just to confuse things unnecessarily.

    LOL. I basically said the same thing that others have been arguing about in the last few posts. They just didn't feel the need to spoiler tag their posts, I guess.

    It is only a spoiler if you have some information not from the show that leads you to your hypothesis.

    In reference to John's mother--it's funny in the books (not a huge spoiler)
    I've read all 5 books, and it seems that every few chapters someone claims that he knew someone who knew the girl who was John's mother, and they are all different and in totally different places. That's really suspicious right there.
