  1. Of course it is a trap. Jon was probably the last person Catelyn wanted to be named heir. So when she and Robb talked about in private she made other propositions (cousins in the Vale,..) and made arguments against it. But Robb was not convinced by her and even became angry. And Cat herself felt defeated. And when it came to the signing of the will, she couldn't do anything about it and had to play along. So this was a trap for her. Robb made sure she wouldn't argue against him in front of his bannermen even though she didn't support his decision.
  2. Yes we witnessed how Robb set the trap. We witnessed in this chapter how he told Catelyn that he wanted to name Jon his heir. And all her arguments couldn't convice him otherwise. He contered them all. And even Cat thinks that he was set on this.,And when he actually presented the will to his bannermen Cat couldn't protest anymore. So this was a trap. He named the person as his heir whom she never wanted as his successsor. And she couldn't do anything about it, because she then would appear disloyal to her son and king. An argumet about it in front of the bannermen would undermine Robb's authority. So she had to remain silent and accept Robb's decision. I actually think that Robb had decided about his will and his heir way before the conversation with Catelyn - maybe even in Riverrun. And the conversation with Cat was solely to inform her about his decision. This because out of courtey and also that she couldn't argue against it in front of his bannermen. In regard why Catelyn would make a bad heir I can only agree with Ygrain's post.
  3. In the small town I used to work I came across a van which belonged to a craftsman. It said Familie Stark - Kamin- und Heizungsbau ( family Stark - construction/installation of fireplaces and radiators/heaters). And of course my first thought was: yeah, winter is coming.
  4. You are wrong. In the Jon chapter, where he is elected Lord Commander he thinks about Cat and how she looked at him: "She was looking at him the way she used to look at him at Winterfell, whenever he had bested Robb at sword or sums or most anything ...". This clearly says that he bested Robb more often than the other way round. If he is as accomplished as Rhaegar is another question, but he is clearly shown to be very capable.
