wall is kind of analogous to hadrian's wall in britain or the great wall of china.


That's a really good map. Simple and clean. The various regions cut up by color with the applicable sigil on them. Prominent landmarks on there but not so much that you can't read them.

The beauty of Littlefingers character is that you never know his true allegiance (until the latest books). Implementing a scene like that which marks clearly which side Littlefinger is NOT fighting for sort of upsets what is so cool about his book representation.

Littlefinger? name is not bringing a face up in my head. pic please?

nevermind... its who I thought.

Benjen Stark is the ranger of the Night's Watch who went missing. Mance Rayder hasn't been formally introduced in the story but that doesn't necessarily mean he hasn't been seen yet.

Yeah, I was gonna call him Petyr but figured Littlefinger is more known. He's my favorite character, not in terms of being good/bad, but just really interesting.

Robb was a badass last night.

I think I mentioned that a few hundred pages ago in this thread, and if they did what they may have done, I'd be flabbergasted.

Mance Rayder is not Benjen Stark.

A lot of people seem to think Coldhands (those who haven't read all the books won't know who this is) may be Benjen, who is still MIA, but nothing has been confirmed.

Try reading the second book, just start with the prologue, after that you will know if you want to read the books or not. ACOK's prologue is among the best.

For those who read the books, did Brandon's dream of the him being a wolf and watching his reflection in the puddle of water means anything at all?? Or should i just wait for the next episode?

Means a lot, big part of the plot of the second book regarding Bran. No spoilers from me though
