a correction on some facts here - ARYA got her sword "Needle' from Jon Snow not Robb.. big difference! #getthefactsstraight


Nice touch including the Dire Wolves, especially Sansa's. Syrio might not be dead. I'm hoping he re-emerges in the last two books or HBO brings him back. There have been a lot of graphic, violent, surprising, and often heart-wrenching deaths if you think about it. Rarely does any death scene pass as just your run-of-the-mill death in GoT. Most are notable in one way or another. It makes the series quite unique.
