    What ever happened to the fleet that Stannis used to sail his armies north when they swooped in and saved the day north of the wall?

    They were Uber, so they probably continued on to their next drop off/pick up.

    EDIT: This is where the term "u-boat" originated.

    Well Yarra was giving orders prior to losing out on the ol' Next King Contest, right?

    Perhaps she just got there and said "I'm your King-Queen, let's go sailing."

    There are so many ways to get out of your contract. It's like the contract doesn't mean much.

    Ooh, this Black Watch thing sucks. I'm going to die and then come back so I can quit. Or, I'm going to turn into a WW so I can quit. Or, I'm going to go take some online classes in Maestering so I can quit. And those are just the ones we know about!

    Turnover in The Black Watch is worse than Party City in November!!!

    When New King said "give me 1,000 ships and I'll..." I thought:

    "Hmm... that will take about 27 years or so." I mean half the men on the island just left, and the only wood I saw was on New King's crown.

    There's a Theon joke in there somewhere.

    Perhaps they just need Ragnar and the Vikings. I swear they could build some ships quick on that show.

    Which, by the way, is a good way to tell when it's going to be a *major* episode. They tend to only write the biggies.

    I still want to know why the rear exit had a door and the front entrance was wide open?

    Nah. I take that as a reference to family life and fatherhood. If the theory about Ned covering for Lyanna is true, Ned wouldn't have told anybody. ANYBODY. The whole oaths/promises/honor thing.

    I think he knew all about Ramsey. It wasn't much of a secret (up there).

    At this point, I think Baelish is only obsessed with his own rise to power. He would've married Sansa if it got him a (defensible) House/title/position-of-power. But it was a better play to hand her over, then narc them out to Cersei.

    Watching that drowning ceremony, I wondered how many times it ended with "Oops. Who else wants to be king?"

    You could get out of the Night's Watch and become King of the Iron Islands at the same time! Dying has so many benefits.

    To get the dragons in.

    I don't think he told anyone. I think Benjen figured it out.

    I was tempted. I'm glad you did it instead of me.

    It's like the human anatomy.

    Plus the front entrance was protected by magic. I'm not sure if the emergency exit was.

    Yarra is a high level naval commander and the men on those ships were probably use to following her orders. Though I'm surprised "all" the ships left with her. As for finding trees and building ships I assume they will go inland as far as necessary and are quite skilled at building ships quickly being "of the sea". Still, it's bound to take significant time.

    I believe that fleet was used by Jon to bring the Wildlings out of Hardhome. Which means that fleet is perhaps anchored somewhere in the North and may still be under the control of the Knights Watch.

    It should take about the same amount of time as it took Littlefinger to get from the Vale to Mole's Town. I expect they'll have a new fleet by next week.
