When Catelyn is telling Talisa about the time Jon got the pox as a child, she talks about his "brown, strangers eyes" looking up at her - Jon actually has the grey eyes of the Starks, in fact he is in appearance more like a Stark than Catelyn's children. So Jon couldn't have strangers eyes - he has his fathers. See more »


Mance Rayder: Was it hard for you to kill the Halfhand?
Jon Snow: Yes.
Mance Rayder: You liked him? I like you, but if you're playing us false, it won't be hard for me to kill you. I've got wildling blood in my veins. These are my people.
Jon Snow: I understand.
Mance Rayder: Well, how could you understand?
Jon Snow: You want to protect your people.
Mance Rayder: Do you know what it takes to unite ninety clans, half of whom want to massacre the other half for one insult or another? They speak seven different languages in my army. The Thenns hate the Hornfoots. The Hornfoots hate...

True Feelings
27 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Bran has another strange dream and out of the blue, the boy of his dreams appears in their camp and introduces himself as Jojen Reed. After a moment of tension, Jojen and his sister team up with the group they head together to The Wall. Theon is tortured by his captors but a servant releases him and he rides to meets his sister. Loras Tyrell escorts Sansa to meet his sister Margaery and their grandmother Oleanna. The old lady asks to Sansa how Joffrey is like and after a moment of reluctance, Sansa tells that he is a monster. Robb and his mother Catelyn leave Harrenhal to go to the funeral of her father. They are also informed about the fate of Winterfell and that Bran and Rickon are missing. Arya, Gentry and Hot Pie are captured by the Brotherhood and brought to an inn to eat and drink. But they also capture The Hound and Arya's identity is disclosed. Jaime lures Brienne and takes her spare sword and they fight on a bridge, but they are surprised by riders from the House of Bolton led by Locke.

"Dark Wings, Dark Words" is another good episode where the viewer is introduced to the witty Lady Oleanna Tyrell and Sansa opens her heart. Will she regret for disclosing her true feelings? Is Oleanna a trustful person? So far, most of the nobles are despicable beings. Who is torturing Theon? What will happen with Brienne and Jaime? My vote is eight.
