    Tower of Joy up in this piece! And the Sword of the Morning is everything I hoped for and more.

    Since Jon died, his watch is over.

    I'm wondering how he can be legitimized as a Stark, within the laws of the realm. I thought it's only by royal decree but I could be wrong.

    He doesn't have to be, if Lyanna and Rhaegar eloped. It looks like Bran's next trip back will be the origin of Jon?

    I'd think Robert's rebellion removes any legal claim to the throne by a Targareyn child. That includes Dany and Jon. Since the children born to Cersei are all bastards born to incest and Stannis is dead, wouldn't that leave just Gendry? I know he's also a bastard but his back muscles have got to be jacked after all that rowing.

    Not really, as long as there are any Targaryens. The only reason he went unchallenged as long as he did was that the only two (known) Targaryens were overseas and out of reach. Well, OK, the one at the Wall, but he didn't count, and everybody had forgotten about him anyway.

    A Targaryen has a better claim to the throne than a Baratheon.

    I don't blame Jon for leaving. And hopefully he's headed to Winterfell.

    I was so disappointed that they left us hanging with Bran's flashback. Grrrrr. What better time to tell us who Jon's mother was than on Mother's Day? :)

    Still a good episode, but I was so expecting some L+R=J satisfaction.

    I don't need any confirmation. It's already a foregone conclusion. They're just stringing along the book readers because they know you guys have been dying to find this out for years.

    I'm glad Jon is leaving the Watch, but I'm. It sure where he'll go. He knows better than anyone the threat that's approaching the Wall. I don't think he'll leave the Night's Watch to deal with that by themselves. And clearly he can't go take Winterfell by himself.

    Speaking of Winterfell, I would not want to be in Rickon or Osha's shoes right about now. Also, Dany doesn't seem to be in a very good situation. It will be interesting to see how she gets free from the Dosh Khaleen.

    This was the first time they've shown us that Varys's "little birds" were children. Was that known in the books, or is that new info for everyone?

    Tommen is so weak, just letting himself be manipulated by the High Sparrow. If Tommen doesn't get free from that guy's grasp, pretty soon he'll have Tommen voluntarily testifying against Cercei.

    I suspect it involves a dragon.

    I totally agree. It's as obvious as Jon Snow coming back from the dead.

    How did the Boars head demonstrate that this was Rickon?

    I didn't think that was a Boar's head - I thought that was his wolf.

    I didn't even remember who Rickon was but I was ready to throw my shoe at the tv when he and the woman I don't remember either showed up as the next potential Ramsay torture victims.

    That was his Direwolf, Shaggy Dog.

    Apparently Direwolfs have about same life span as a Stark. At this point, there are only one known to be alive: Ghost, Jon's Direwolf. Two others are probably still alive, but we have not seen them in a while: Summer (Bran) & Nymeria (Arya)

    yeah no kidding. More FF coming up.

    Thanks for clearing up my confusion over boars head versus dire wolf. I thought I saw a tusk, but that must have been the convenient carrying hook.
