    Oops, he's right. Her connection to the Eyrie is, well, not something that's come up yet. In the books,
    her sister married the lord there, and later that's where she flees.

    Yes. And she is a Tully (fish) indeed. Her sister married Jon Arryn (The previous Hand of the King), who is an Eagle. Her sister is the one who sent her the letter in the first episode.

    There are some good family trees around - but many of them have text spoilers. I'm trying to find a simple picture with names. If I do, I'll add a link.

    Ok. I found one. A quick review of this doesn't reveal anything you shouldn't know yet. However, just to make sure, I'll spoiler the link.

    That's a good tree, the only 'spoilerish' thing is that it shows a few characters who haven't appeared yet, but nothing major.

    I think they did say she had fled Kings Landing and was writing the letter from the Eyrie.

    I've printed the map and the family tree pics and will have them next to me when I watch this show from now on. This is fast becoming my favorite show.

    As for the fish/sea thing, as I recall it's a trout, a river fish.

    I think this question was forgotten. Anyone care to tell us the answer? which sea on the map are they going to have to cross?

    Another big thumbs up to the EW recaps. Very funny. I'm halfway through the second recap and I don't recall encountering any spoilers (Thanks, Tracy!)

    correction, I think it's the narrow sea, but from where? "somewhere to the right of the map"?

    You are correct. The Dothraki storyline takes place east across the Narrow Sea.

    is it...
    From the book, a minor detail that might never be mentioned in the HBO show but probably explain the location of Winterfell.

    Winterfell sits on top several hot springs which aid its survival during the winters.

    I've yet to find a good map of the lands across the narrow sea, the "independent" cities.

    This site seems to have scanned in quite a few of the maps from the books. Although the exact one you are looking for doesn't appear to be there. I'll again spoiler this link because, well, you never know :)

    Not sure if its official however, if it is .... gives you a scope of just how big this "planet" Westeros is on really is.

    Until the HBO show, I had never found a map that actually showed the land across the narrow sea. So the clockwork map in the beginning was when I finally realized it's location in relation to Westeros (which is to the right.)

    Hbo has a great map at http://viewers-guide.hbo.com/game-of-thrones/

    Is Petyr Baelish called Littlefish because he's from that family too? So that's how he knows Catlyn so well? But he's not listed with her family...

    No, his nickname is Littlefinger. He came from a minor house. He grew up with Cat.

    Westeros is supposed to be as large as South America.

    As Aniketos said, his nickname is "Littlefinger." If you look at the map that was posted earlier, there are some peninsulas in the northeast portion of The Eyrie called "The Fingers." Baelish comes from the smallest of these.

    I'm still on the fence on this show. I'm totally confused by most of it, and I'm trying to like it, but I'm just not big on this type of show. Nevertheless, I will stick with it for awhile.

    Just a question about the book, and I'll spoilerize it just in case:

    Is the book written in the third person or first? For some reason, I am picturing the book being written by the dwarf.

    One think I always found a bit interesting. This is a fictional land, so, in theory, they could be speaking anything...so why do they have to speak UK English? Or am I missing something and this is supposed to be England? Seems like in all these fantasy type shows, they are always speaking UK English :)

    Not really a spoiler. The books are written in POV chapters, for various characters. Not first person so much, but you only see from that persons perspective for that chapter.
