    Ok. I didn't consider that psychic I guess.

    Its a castle on a rock island. No food, no farming, no way to support livestock. Without shipments of food, there's no reason to be there.

    In addition to what was already said, it's the castle where Stannis lived until he took his forces north of the Wall to save Jon & Co. Since it's quite a ways off shore and most people don't have boats, it's a safe bet that the majority of "homeless" people would have no idea the castle had been vacated.

    That makes sense, especially since they were so small when they went extinct.

    He could have had a cameo where he picked up a big rock and under it are all the TCF posters who live there who have no idea who he is.

    That's an interesting take...I had not considered that.

    I will hasten to add, though, that Stannis saw a big battle in the snow. We don't know if he was even involved and we don't know if he was even supposed to win. IOW, we don't know how much he saw and how much was his own assumptions and interpretations.

    I recognize the name as a singer, I have no idea what he sings, or what he looks like.

    Of that I only know he looks like a hobbit based on seeing him on this show. I still have no idea what he sings nor why I should care.

    I didn't even realize it was him until reading here. So for me, it didn't take me out of anything (other than thinking about it now, and the relevance to the plot line, it feels that the scene was written for him, outside of the last line of the scene where Arya says she's going to kill the queen, the scene was useless. And, we already knew she was on Arya's list.

    Well, I think she initially was going to kill them (she eyed their weapons early in the encounter), but she realized that some Lannister soldiers are just normal people being forced to be a soldier.

    He looked like Seth Rogen to me!

    OTOH, I did love the song. So for those who follow him, please post here if he records it or if it becomes available somehow (through HBO or something). Thanks!

    Exactly. The scene wasn't there for him; he was squeezed into the scene. But it was a quietly significant scene for Arya (the first time we've seen her be something other than a stone-cold psychopath in quite a while).

    I can't be the only one who expected to see Arya riding away from the camp leaving behind a pile of Lannister soldiers who she slaughtered while they slept.

    Heck, I'm still half expecting to see that next episode.

    What bugged me is that Jamie was pretty sure she'd land at Dragonstone. Seemed pretty sure. Why didn't the Lanisters send a few boats and booby-trap the place? Or destroy it? Or take that cool stone table back home? Or destroy it?

    I mean they could have easily gotten there first and prevented her from having an HQ where she could "Shall we begin?" within 10 minutes of arriving.

    That would redeem that entirely unnecessary scene. It didn't ring true with me after seeing six seasons of Lannister soldiers portrayed as being bags of d**cks, to see this friendly, chummy and musical group.

    She is not the only one. Arya is rocking the Ned Stark do. Cersei is emulating Tywin. And in the last two cases, they are even dressing like the people who they emulate.

    Agreed.

    ... and I just barely know that singer guy (from appearances on the Today Show) so when I saw him I spent the next 10 minutes with half my brain doing the "where do I know him from?" thing. I hated it. I think it was a poor decision by whichever bigwig made the decision. I hope they take the feedback they're getting seriously.
