- It's not very clear in this image, but that surely does look like Alys Karstark.
"Possibly something a bit more poetic?"
The article says:
- Samwell says the title of the book Ebrose is working on, An History of the Wars Following the Death of Robert I, could be a bit more "poetic" .... Similarly, Game of Thrones might be setting up that Samwell Tarly is going to write an in-universe history book about all of these events in Westeros.
Personally I took this exchange to be hinting (or joking) at the title "A Song of Ice And Fire" (or, I suppose, "A Game of Thrones"). Perhaps that what Sam may eventually call his book? I mention it here because it seems to me, at least, like something worth mentioning in the article (certainly many theories of this nature make it in to article texts, despite being rank speculation), but I'm not sure how to phrase it or where to insert it, and furthermore I don't want to rashly throw it into the article if other editors think it is inappropriate, or will just delete it. --Mad Latinist (talk) 23:50, July 24, 2017 (UTC)
- OK, not surprisingly I'm not the only person to have read that into the line. Myles McNutt, on The AV Club, writes:
- Was I the only one who got super nervous that after Sam said the Archmaester needed a catchier title he was going to say “How about Game Of Thrones?” It’s still implied, I think, but if he’d actually said it I would have died a little inside.
- Since I have a citation, I need not be so timid. Perhaps I'll add it in later today, when I have more time.

Jon's announcement of Sansa as his regent happens around minute 42 of the episode. I carefully watched it and Brienne's reaction does not seem to me to be rasing her chin nor her eyes. Quite the opposite, in fact. I saw it as a show of appreciation. LuisDantas (talk) 03:25, July 25, 2017 (UTC)
Dragonglass and wights
Why everyone says dragonglass is useless against wights in the books and cite Sam III chapter? Here's the quote: "Shards of dragonglass flew everywhere as the blade shattered on the iron mail beneath the wool."
