- Sounds like Brynden is the source of some, but not all, of Robb’s supposed precocious strategic brilliance.
- Robb is “near as tall as [Catelyn]”? It seems like he was described as taller than that before.
- Dacey Mormont is introduced, and it doesn’t sound like she does much waiting around for men.
- Jaime’s not in his white armor. Isn’t he at least theoretically supposed to still be acting on behalf of the King?
