When Jon and Ygritte reach the top of the Wall, you can clearly see there is a hook with a line on top of the Wall. It makes no sense as they have been climbing up and opening the way as they went, that would make sense if they were about to descend or otherwise somebody put it there for them to climb, which is not the case.

It's hard to comment on segments. So I would say that there are some broad issues that are constantly in front of us. There is a struggle to tell who the players are as we parse the seven kingdoms that keep being mentioned. The Lannisters seem to have most of the chips, but their manipulations are certainly dangerous and may backfire. Where is Arya going to end up. Why is Theon being tortured by that sniveling little jerk and why does he have so much power over life and death. No dragons this time. She's on her way, though, and what will happen when those things reach full size. It's like having deflated footballs. There is this incredible scene as the winter people climb the ice wall and peer over the other side. Tyrion and his sister are now commiserating over who is whose enemy and whether the dwarf was her target. Does it matter. They are all potentially deadly and blood certainly isn't thicker than water, unless ambition can be satisfied. We are off to the races as the next episode unfolds. The wedding is coming and Littlefinger is using his wiles and trying to manipulate his way to the top.
