Of course, so is Dany, Theon, etc.
His little brother Bran seems like an older soul and someone who puts family first more.

*edit* are you referring to the current books, or what just happened in the show?

For some reason I think Arya and (Jon (DoA)) are going to bring the pain.

A fitting end for Walder Frey would be to waste away to disease before everything plays out...or be killed by his own.

Well, when I got to this point in the books I literally threw the book down and didn't pick it back up for a week. They did a great job with last nights episode and I look forward to more! Sucks there is only one episode left this season, but it should be good.

Don't get me wrong, I was pissed about them killing off Robb and his mom, but man did I cringe when they took out the direwolf.

Yeah. Honestly at this point, all of the true players for the Iron Throne would probably be great and fair at it (Stannis, Dany, Jon, Aegon, assuredly more to come--looking at you Petyr Baelish, Sansa Stark, etc)

I actually think Littlefinger would be a terrible king.

Best acting award goes to Jorah with that completely anguished look he gave when Dany asked him about Daario.

Fantastic episode overall. I wish Grey Wind could have taken down some of the Frey's like he did in the book.

Also, we've talked about it before but if Martin did tell the HBO crew what the ending will be and if they are attempting to follow it, then that means we all received the spoiler that Jeyne, who may still be pregnant, is not really going to play a huge part in the upcoming books.

Also, if you want to read something funny, look up this episode on Twitter...those comments are hilarious. If all the threats from the girls are true, this show just lost over half its female audience.

Gonna use spoilers cause I'm talking about stuff that's at the very end of book five and everyone might not be there.

SPOILER: ( Aegon certainly looks poised to take the throne in the short term. I'm interested to see what happens when/if Dany crosses the Narrow Sea. (Will she have a Khalasar to go along with her Unsullied? Will she join with/marry Aegon or oppose him?)

Fully convinced that Littlefinger is just a piece of **** and will use Sansa as a means to an end or just betray her. It was bad-****ing-ass when he chucked Lysa out the moon gate though. I hope they keep that in the show.

Pretty obvious Jon isn't dead, but who the hell knows what's next for him. Maybe Tormund saves him or something?

Everything about the story north of the wall compels the hell out of me. Sounds like Martin is going to take us way north in the next two books, too.

I don't go on twitter, please post a summary (although I can only imagine). I'll begin my eye roll in the meantime.

HAHA! What do they think this is, Twilight? I guess some can't deal with the fact that those characters are all human and can die at a moments notice. It doesn't matter if you're a popular/main character, such is life.

If I can digress for a moment; I guess this is another glimpse into what our society has become, a bunch of sheltered and protected little lambs. The same sheep that blindly purchase and defend the iPhone as being the best.

You have to learn to accept that George R.R. Martin kills all his characters. At first I hated it. But then I tried to acknowledge that 1.) Everyone dies. and 2.) It's a war in Medieval-ish times, which means a lot of people die. To enjoy the books, you really mush enjoy the characters on every page because they very well could be gone in just a few chapters. So enjoy them while you have them.

I was more sad about other deaths upcoming. And while it does seem the Stark's get shat on lot in GOT, it's setting up some more cool elements.

The only thing I was disappointing in was that Rosalin was happy and smiling during the feast. The added horror that she knew what was going to happen at her own wedding would have added just that much more.

On the bright side, looks like we get more Theon torture next week.
