    Does Davos know what's happened to Stannis? Does he know what Stannis and Melisandra did to Shireen?

    Did we see how the older Lord Umber died? I don't remember that.

    Man, these lords must have been terrible parents to raise such horrible kids...

    One thing confused me. Who was it that helped Ned Stark in Bran's vision? The one who stabbed the back. Was that supposed to be Robert or is it too early in the story for Robert?

    That was Lord Howland Reed, who was Jojen and Meera's father (they were helping Bran get north of the wall and Jojen was killed in the season finale; Meera was the one moping around in the snow last week). Howland was one of Ned's best friends and they fought together during the war that put Robert on the throne.

    That was Qyburn's way of gathering intel. Did he say that's the same way Varys does it? I didn't think so.

    Absolutely. Varys talked of his little birds then we cut to Qyburn talking to the children. He/they said that they got sweets for the information they gave Varys. Qyburn responded by giving them sweets and telling them to bring him information.

    Dear God:

    Please. I beg you. Let's not spend the rest of this season with Jon Snow trying to find himself and wandering the North unsure of what to do. Please don't make me see know-nothing small-penis Jon moping around, frowning, and feeling sorry for himself.

    That alone would make me look forward to the Ramsey torture scenes with Rickon and Asha.

    Yes, according to Qyburn those were the kids Varys used. Qyburn was "taking them over" in this episode.

    But I'm not sure all the little birds were kids...didn't Varys use prostitutes once? (As little bird, that is, not, well, you know, obviously!)

    Absolutely. Rose paid for the betrayal with her life, for example.

    In the conversation with the kid, the kid talks about Varys and how he gave them candy when they had information. (He doesn't mention Varys by name as I recall. As I remember it, he referenced the bald guy but that's probably just how I stored it in memory.)

    Girl - "Will Lord Varys ever come back?"

    Boy - "He called us his little birds."

    So that's at least twice referencing this world is using English as the common tongue (graffiti at Mereen, Gilly's "see" and "sea"). Do the book ever mention the actual language used?

    How much time has passed in the last few seasons? I thought the last we saw Rickon he was young...7 or 8 years old at most. This episode he looked like a teenager to me.

    What/who is Sword of the Morning? Was that the badass 2-sworded knight that almost killed all 5 of them?

    If someone would be so kind, I could use an explanation of who Stark was fighting in the flashback scene.

    I know it was something to do with the rebellion, so presumably someone loyal to the mad king. What tower was this, and where? I assume the speculation is that Jon Snow's mother is in that tower.

    I thought I recalled Stark asking badass knight about his (Stark's) sister. Wasn't Stark's sister killed by the mad king, at king's landing? Wasn't that what started the whole rebellion?

    I think this episode pretty much sealed it for book readers. There are still show only fans who have no clue yet why that tower is important, who it impacts, and what it means for everyone in Westoros. A part of me wishes I could have avoided the books until now, because from the perspective of the uninitiated there is a big question that will be answered later, and it will be very suspenseful getting there. For the rest of us, last night was all we needed to know. Something important happened in that tower, the clues have been there all along, and with Jon back there is no doubt he is a Targayan/Stark love child.

    I disagree. From the perspective of people totally in the dark, last night was somewhat of a mystery. Book readers got all the confirmation they need.

    That is revealed as are a couple of other tricks Varys used.

    Her name is Leaf, and she is one of the children of the forest. They are kind of like elves in Westoros.
