I finished Clash of Kings recently and am already ~170p into Storm of Swords now. I posted my question here, because I don't want to see spoilers that might be included in the SoS sub-forum.

One of the most interesting things for me is the question about the assassin that tried to kill Bran but was stopped by Catelyn and the direwolf.

Could you please sum up (and quote) the references to the dagger we have till the end of Clash of Kings?

But PLEASE don't spoil anything. I know that basically it is forbidden to place spoilers in these "still reading" forums, however, I already found out both minor and major facts, because some people get into these forums (with their knowledge about later events) and place more or less obvious "hints".
Sorry, if I sounded too offensive, but I think people that are at the same early stage of reading know what I mean :worried:

I am not sure about the references to the dagger.
BUT in some old interview with GRRM I read, that after CoK there are enough hints out there to realize who sent the assassin.

I figured about at the same point as where you are now. Though it was more of a guess until proven right. And I had to use the elimination method.

By the end of aCoK, we don't know who sent the assassin. You have to wait till aSoS to have more clues, and even then, there's no absolute certainty (since people who claim to know could be lying).

It's resolved in ASoS, according to the man himself.
