    They had been married for a year anmd she was pregnant with Robb at the time of war. And they were not well known to each other at that time.

    So, arranged marriage
    Knock boots
    off to war
    Come home with bastard baby

    All within 18-24 months.

    I still don't know. Until reading this thread, I thought it was Sansa.

    Which is cool and all, but not everyone is as observant as you, brah. Nor is everyone plugged into a forum like this were the theory has been out there for years.

    The showrunners still have a story to tell. Drawing this out and getting the viewer interested in Bran's visions makes sense from that perspective.

    At this point, Rickon may just be a red shirt -- Ramsey's last bit of ugliness before he's crushed by Jon. Because Ramsey'll be too impatient and short-sighted to save Rickon as a bargaining chip.

    I hope that Umber has a plan, and Osha and Rickon are in on it. But I don't really think it is likely, because even with a plan, putting Osha and Rickon into the Bastard's hands, even temporarily, would be crazy.

    With Shaggydog dead I seriously doubt that.

    Yeah, I've heard of some speculation that it wasn't really ShaggyDog's head and that Umber is pulling a con on Ramsey, but I don't think there's any way he pulls a con but puts the real Rickon in harm's way.

    Also, from the look on Rikkon's face, he was scared ****less, and I've never seen any sign that the character was good enough to fake a look like that.

    I suppose the only way it could work is if that was not really Rickon, and not really Shaggy Dog's head. But even then, it would be a crazy plan, putting Osha into the Bastard's hands. And it would be a dirty trick of the showrunners if that were not really Rickon, even though it is the same actor.

    I'll have to re-watch the fight, but I thought he sustained some sort of wound to his abdomen towards the beginning. Could be wrong.

    Slash across the upper chest, like a missed neck slash.

    I was disappointed with the portrayal of Dayne's fighting.

    It should have been a man who was a master of fighting with his (single) longsword, not some guy flailing around with two longswords, which is just absurd.

    Fighting with two short swords was rarely the most effective way to duel (you would do better with a longsword or a dueling sword in your dominant hand, and a buckler or dagger in your other hand), but it would at least have been plausible. Two longswords is just silly.

    Just before Bran went under The Wall, he convinced Osha to take Rickon to the hall of their loyal and strongest bannerman, House Umber... and the son of that lord is who showed up with them in tow in this episode.

    Don't know why they didn't get sent to Howland's. Maybe they didn't think they could get there without Jojen or Meera to help.

    He sure recovered well.

    I expected him to fall down dead after delivering the blow that saved Ned. Instead, he rushed off to check on his other men. Like he wasn't hurt at all.

    Thank you. I don't remember that at all. I suck at remembering things that... what was I saying?

    Anyway, Bran thought they'd be safe at House Umber, but that house (or at least one person living there) felt turning them over to Bolton was the right play. Probably right (for them).

    I think there's a shot this is all some sort of ruse (Roose, ha) to somehow get Winterfell back. I don't know, but I am holding out some hope.
