LOL, I really don't think revealing his name is even remotely a big deal, but I purposely did not mention him by name in last weeks thread, knowing how sensitive(often ridiculously so) all the spoiler hall monitors are around here, and couldn't pass up the chance to say so in not so many words. Though now I have said it in so many words LOL

Ah ok then. Haven't actually read the books, only a couple of websites about them and what I skimmed over on them wasn't very clear exactly when he was first named only that it was later on in relation to the others. Don't recall them referring to him by name in the series either. Have they yet?

Agreed. All the Direwolves have been named. I'm not sure how dog names would be consider spoilers anyhow?

I think even in one of the short scenes Rickon has he calls Shaggydog by his name - when he's with Osha in the crypt.

No. It was just the direwolf attacking. There's nothing about Robb "being" the dire wolf if that's what he's trying to say.

No, Robb doesn't attack AS grey wind. This is yet another trick of show of glossing over a battle.

I don't know if they go over it in the show. Bran immediately names him after coming out of his coma in the books. I think for dramatic effect, the show where he wakes up cuts as soon as his eyes open.

It was a pretty big box. I figure there was more than just his head. Feet maybe?

All of which are possibilities, but none of those made for good Pulp Fiction references...

You do realize, I hope, that there is more to life than Pulp Fiction references.

Maybe not a LOT more, but...

"The Boy" was traveling with one of the Stark's bannermen, heading towards Winterfell. Arya hasn't been seen since Ned's death, and she isn't with the Starks. Tywin isn't dumb, if he isn't 100% sure that is Arya, then he is at least willing to take her on as a cup bearer until he can be sure. He also might not to "out" her in front of the other Wall conscripts, who might be motivated to return her to the the Starks for a sure reward.

Qarth definitely rose up from the map, and as others said Harrenhall is ruined. It was obvious to me watching the opening credits that Qarth was where Danerys was going to end up. My problem is that the credits for this episode showed both Pyke and The Wall without any action taking place in those locales (Winterfell too, but one can make the case the since both Kate and Rob (Arya as well) were important to the episode Winterfell did belong.

Right, and Pulp Fiction was "what's in the briefcase?"

My wife didn't see Se7en, and the Zed/Ned dead/head twist seemed close enough.

A joke explained loses its humor.

I have read the books and still can't catch all the names, or maybe because I know who I'm looking for I'm jumping to conclusions. I also missed that it was Tywin who took over at Harrenhaul--again looking for someone else.....
To explain some things in your paragraph will reveal some big differences between the book and the show.

Spoiler:
It was Roose Bolton who talked to Rob about flaying men. You may have been confused by his presence because at this point in the books he is not in the field, he is one of the prisoners (along with his army) at Harrenhal. Tywin and the Mountain were holding Harrenhal together for a time but both eventually leave and put Harrenhal under the control of Armory Loach (sp?) and also the Brave Companions. At that point Arya helps free Roose Bolton's men and becomes his cupbearer.

No, "he" was traveling with one of the Night Watch's recruiters, headed towards the Wall.

Not to mention that Tywin waltzes in and knows nothing of where those specific prisoners came from, right? Does the torturer mention where they came from?

I don't believe Roose Bolton was ever a prisoner at Harrenhal. He arrived at Harrenhal shortly after Arya freed the Northman and he took charge of Harrenhal until being called away by Robb and left Harrenhal to Vargo Hoat.

I wanted to point that out as well, Tiassa. You are confused. Arya was not with any of Lord Stark's bannermen. She was traveling with Yoren, who is from the Night's Watch, under the guise that (s)he was going to the wall. There is no proper association with the Nights Watch and Ned Stark (other than his brother Benjen being a ranger, now lost). There's no reason for someone in Westeros to think that Arya would be with them.

And maybe they didn't tell tywin where those prisoners came from because, as a Lord, he might have enough respect for the Watch that he would not approve.

Spoiler:

This is accurate. He wasn't a prisoner. Although you can't blame someone for being confused. The whole Bolton/Frey plot-line can be confusing as hell. This is where a page like this comes in handy:

http://towerofthehand.com/reference/k/00036/index.html

Be careful if you haven't read all the books to set the 'scope' correctly.
