    Number of roommates from the Family of Blood episodes of Doctor Who who have had pointy objects pointed at them on Game of Thrones: 2.

    I think the only people who care less about Rickon than I do are the writers. He was on screen for about fifteen seconds, and all he did was WANDER OFF INTO A FIELD. And the other characters were all, meh?

    Joffrey is terrifyingly evil, but he's also kinda dumb, and it's good that we've got characters who recognize that.

    Poor, poor Sansa.

    Oh, also we just got two Misfits to go along with two Fades, and I was way off last week, Bran is definitely not a werewolf.

    My personal ALOTTFMA match-up is trying to figure out who wrote each post based on writing style before I get to the "Posted by" big reveal.

  6. The problem with adapting Rickon's character from the books is that Rickon is still a toddler there, and doesn't *have* a character. His existence is purely functional, as far as I can tell.

    In the books he's a feral asshole. They could do something with that.
