    Did Meleys fight on the Stepstones?

    Probably. Can't see any reason why she wouldn't. Maybe she isn't mentioned because she mainly guarded the fleet or something?

    Sam in basic training

    Chett didn't have loyalty in the end, and surely you'd want the best man for the job in a position as important as the Maesters scribe. Chett was a lowborn who barely knew how to read. Sam is highly educated, can read and write and do sums and is one of the most well read people at the Wall, maybe even in Westeros. He should have been put into that position the second he got to the Wall, not shoving him under the instruction of a brutal, petty, spiteful so-called knight until he breaks and is of no use to anyone.

    'Trainees'. All Thorne did was throw them in a ring with a pair of swords and told them to hit the other person. Jon was the one who taught his 'class' how to actually use a sword. Thorne was the teacher because he was a knight. That's it. Not because he was the best man for the job and not because he's a good teacher. As I said earlier, someone who would be harsh on the recruits but not single any one of them purely for the sake of it would have done a much better job with Sam.

    He didn't have to go easy on him, but likewise he didn't have to single him out. Under someone with a slightly gentler attitude; Leathers or Endrew Tarth for example; Sam, though not physically inclined, might have picked something up.

    Defiance of Duskendale: Who else could have done it?

    Arthur Dayne maybe. Potentially Jaime in his prime. Perhaps Garlan, we don't really know how he compares to the likes of Barristan and Arthur, or Mance. But very few. You forgot that Barristan had to fight his way out as well as sneak in; with the King on his back.

    Walder Frey versus Stoneheart's Merrymen

    They tried and failed. Why? Because with guerrilla warfare like this the size of your army isn't really important. You could have the biggest army in the world but some skilled guerrilla's with the populace's support could devastate you (*cough*Vietnam*cough). The Lannisters also supposedly had the numbers but they and the Starks were both completely unable to deal with them. Why should the Frey's; with less men and significantly less talented commanders overall and fighting an even more bloodthirsty and motivated Brotherhood; be able to succeed where Tywin and Robb failed?

    How is Edric Storm being looked after?

    Maybe, but Blackberry is one of only about five guards. If he wanted to kill or capture Edric he'd have to go through Lewys the Fishwife, Gerald Gower, Triston of Tally Hill and Andrew Estermont. All are knights and at least Gower fought at and survived Blackwater, and is noted to have fought well there. It's more than likely the others fought there as well, especially Estermont.
  8. Because of time. Even a rushed wedding would take a day or so seeing as Robb would have to pick which Frey girl to marry (some people seem to be taking for granted that its Roslin, ignoring that the deal was that Robb could choose his bride), they'd have to find a Septon (there's probably one at the Twins but no guarantee) and then the actual ceremony. All of this would take time they didn't have. I agree once Riverrun was liberated and Ned was killed, Robb probably should have married and worked on getting an heir straight away. Although now that I think about it wasn't the agreement that the weddings would take place after the war was over? So he got a squire to an LP's heir and two wards at Winterfell immediately and an oath for two marriages in what was assumed to be the near future. That looks like hedging his bets to me. Immediate lesser rewards but without tying himself too closely to a ship that may yet sink. But if it doesn't then he has bigger rewards to come.

    Honor and starks

    If it was done arbitrarily or for a minor offence I'd agree. Hell I'd argue that what Tywin did to the Reyne's and Tarbeck's was overkill. But unless I'm very much mistaken, we haven't actually been told how they died out. Simply that five centuries after they were formed, they presumed to join the Bolton's in rebellion and at the very least no male Greystark's survived said rebellion. It could simply be that all the male Greystark's at the time were of an age to fight and died doing so. Alternatively it could have been that the Starks felt their betrayal was less forgivable than the Bolton's (because Greystarks were related and Bolton's weren't) and wiped them out deliberately but if that were the case then I feel like a bigger deal would have been made out of it in the series proper.

    Honor and starks

    The wiped out the Greystarks after they joined the Bolton's in a rebellion. I think that's the only case. Robb did execute Rickard Karstark but that's not quite the same.

    The future Lord of the Crossing

    They didn't have any issues with Pod, who is just a squire. Some of them might be a bit uncomfortable hanging younger kids, but I doubt it. The ones who have moral qualms about wiping out the Frey's seem to have already abandoned the Brotherhood.

    The future Lord of the Crossing

    Yeah. But they have no qualms about it when she gives the go ahead. No matter who's on the end of a rope.

    The future Lord of the Crossing

    The original brotherhood did. But that version of the brotherhood seems to have died with Beric. Some of the remaining members, like Thoros, might be unhappy with Stonehearts new direction, and clearly people like Anguy and Ned Dayne (who both seem to have abandoned the new brotherhood) aren't in agreement with her either but the people around Stoneheart (Lem, Harwin and Tom) don't seem to have any issues.

    robb response to iron island invding north

    I disagree. To me it comes across that he's very much already written Theon off as a lost cause. His hopes for a worthy heir are on Asha. I think he was planning to make a move while the realm was divided whether Theon remained a hostage or not.

    robb response to iron island invding north

    The impression I got was that Balon was going to attack anyway. IMO the only thing that Theon affects is whether or not Winterfell itself falls
