    It has yet to be revealed if he's the real Aegon. In fact, Varys and Tyrion are travelling with him.

    I'm confused. What does it mean? And who is he anyway? Is he in the show?

    He was Ned's father. Also the father of Lyanna, Benjen, and Ned's older brother Brandon, who was supposed to marry Catlyn and be Lord of Winterfell, but was killed by Aerys

    He's the father of Ned, Lyanna, Brandon and Benjen.

    There are little tiny arrows indicating in which direction the lines go.

    He's Ned's father (and therefore Benjen's, Lyanna's and Brandon's).

    Not in the show but covered in dialogue concerning the back story (I think)

    ah, Ereth beat me to it :)

    He must have been in the show in a flashback, since he has a photo.

    First of all, I don't pronounce "gnome" the same as "Nome" (Alaska). Second, that is a case of a silent letter, not the same as the difference between hard and soft (if anything, you could have asked if I would pronounce it as "if").

    D'oh. Thanks everyone.

    I interpreted the arrows backwards. I thought he was one of Ned's kids. I can keep all the Stark-rats straight.

    So Rickard and Brandon never really were on the show, right?

    Lyanna was "abducted" by Rhaegar Targaryen. Rickard and Brandon went to King Aerys (Rhaegar's father) to demand Lyanna's return. Instead, Aerys killed Rickard and Brandon in a rather gruesome manner, and that chain of events is what started "Robert's Rebellion" which ended with Robert Baratheon as king and the Targaryen's killed and/or banished from Westeros.

    The series starts a few years after all of these things are finished, with Robert as king and married to Cersei, Daenerys and Viserys in Essos trying to raise an army, and the Starks back in Winterfell minding their own business.

    I seem to recall a scene where Aerys had Rickard and Brandon burned alive. Or one burned and the other made to watch then killed. It was a very short flashback scene, maybe by Jamie.

    Or I am confusing a memory from the book. CRS.

    The only time we've seen Aerys was in Bran's vision, but there were just two short scenes:

    1. Aerys saying "Burn them all", and
    2. Jaime kingslaying him

    That's some really good writing! Gave me chills. Especially the quote from Jamie to Ned.



    Maybe I will go back and read the books, after all.

    And I've heard a lot of speculation that #2 is actually a future vision of Jaime slaying someone else on the Iron Throne, perhaps Cersei.

    That would be hard core.

    I approve.

    I just rewatched the one with the bear. I really like Jaime (when he's not pushing children out of windows).
