    Lol. I don't think there are any real spoilers yet. Really it may even be a safe thread for those that have asked about clarification from the books or don't mind hearing how some scenes compare.

    There's a lot of questions I don't think to ask, but when I see them asked and answered I find them very interesting. I'd hate seeing that disappear into PMs

    But Bran was informed that it was attacked by Lanister soldiers. Was that a mistaken report? Or are there going to be a three sides cluster-fisk there when 200 Stark bannermen collide with the Lanister soldiers and Thoen's pirates?
    (BTW don't actually want answers, just speculating on where the show might go. And of course waiting impatiently for the next episode

    They certainly seem to want to take that ex-ranger out. But when they were talking about it they're worried that he's organizing the wildlings and will lead them in a succesful attack against the south. (No one, even wildlings wants to stay north of the wall with a long winter coming and the white walkers (and gods knows what else) stirring.

    Eliminate him and the chances that the wildlings can successfully overwhelm the watch and destroy the south's defenses against the northern threats is vastly lessened.

    Don't forget the freaky chick in the mask. Not double freaky though, just single freaky.

    My take was that they just assumed it was Lannisters attacking. That's who they're at war with, after all. They have no idea that Greyjoy is even their enemy yet.

    I laughed at that. It was like "throwing the cat" trope, Warlock guys pops out of nowhere to be freaky. Then weird lady pops out of no one to be freaky. I joked and said Rickon should pop out next to just finish this out.

    Lo and behold, Rickon comes back (although not creepy) for the first time in God knows how many episodes.

    No he wasn't. Brans advisor assumed it was the lannisters. Here's the exact exchange:

    Guy with weird beard: Lord Stark, Torrens Square is under seige.
    Brans advisor: Torrens Square is barely 40 leagues from here. How can the Lannisters strike so far north?
    Guy with weird beard: It might be a raiding party led by the Mountain. Might be sellswords paid by Tywin Lannister

    So they clearly didn't know the details and just assumed, since the Lannisters are their only known enemies at that point.

    Ah. Thanks for posting that.

    I remembered the Lanister's bit, and guessing about which group of them, but missed/didn't remember it was total speculation. (As opposed to seeing people with Lanister standards attacking, but not being sure who led them)

    I thought Rickon was a little creepy. He's not a baby after all.

    I was wondering if the connection to the wolves is stronger in the Stark children the younger they are--like kids are supposedly more open to ghosts and stuff than adults. We know Bran is very close to his wolf, but we don't really know what Rickon is up to. Maybe he's even more so involved with running the fields with Shaggy dog and that's why he acts so wild and crazy with people.

    Yeah, it seem that way, didn't it. The manner in which he sat there smashing the nuts almost seemed like someone who had gone mad. But I suppose that's probably how a bored little kit having to sit in on some boring council meeting would probably act.

    Right...bear in mind, they'd probably been there all day, listen to people whine about tedious little problems no one but the whiner could possibly care about. It's amazing that everybody else wasn't smashing nuts on the table. :D

    Seriously, though, I think the point wasn't how "nuts" Rickon was, but how unnaturally mature Bran was.

    All the wolves have some telepathy with their Stark master. Robb's grey stalks and attacks the correct people at the right time, and Robb is hardly a young one.

    I loved the imagery of Bran's dream of water spilling over the walls (greyjoys).

    Does anyone know how fast HBO puts this up on GO each week? Is it immediately? I know it's there by mid morning but I'm leaving Monday at 6am for Florida and I don't see me staying up to watch this Sunday night. I'm hoping to watch it on the flight. I don't think I can wait almost a week to watch it.

    According to the ads, it's available as soon as the original airing is over. They always have an ad to "Watch it again on HBO Go, with the enhanced information".

    I hope you are sitting in the back row. Otherwise I'd be too nervous to watch this show on a plane. The kid behind you will be looking over your shoulder and them some Littlefinger brothel scene pops up :)

    Trust me, no kids ever look over my shoulder. :D
    Now I'm thinking the wifi might not be great enough on the plane for HD streaming so I might have to wait until I'm there. My friends are going to be saying WTF when I tell them I need an hour to watch the show. Hee!

    :D but no.
    Do you realize how hard it's going to be for me to not watch this tonight?? Even if I wanted to stay up to watch, my mom will be here (she's staying at my house while I'm gone to help with my diabetic kitty) and I know she has no interest in it and would freak out over some of the content.
