    Why did the Freys torture Cat before her death, but not Robb?

    Grey Wind was not exactly nice to the Freys. Robb should have left him somewhere safe.

    It's not that simple. Eddard had already been arrested for plotting against the king. His son chose to march against the Lannisters instead of obeying the royal summons. Cat dwarf-napped the queen's little brother. That is rebellion.

    No problem. To get to the core of your question. The Freys were "meaner" to Robb because he was the one who broke his words to them. It was the best way to put down the northern rebellion.

    Even if it were real ravens. The Freys have no way to make them do that.

    The Starks forced them to choose. Walder had to make a choice.

    As to Robb. They did not exactly torture him. They violated his corpse and that of his wolf. It was disrespectful to the dead. But it was not torture.

    An Evil Name

    I believe the broader implications that connect the NK and Jon Snow are their betrayal of duty. They betrayed their duties for a woman. The corpse bride in the case of the NK. You know, you could also say Arya is a corpse bride. She spent a lot of time handling corpses. Brides of death, if you will.

    Guest right is not law. It is custom and tradition.

    The Red Wedding Was Justified.

    House Tully and everybody in Westeros have an obligation to remain loyal to Joffrey. The fact that the Tullys rebelled meant they were outlaws. The Freys have no obligation to side with outlaws. And Robb Stark proclaiming himself king in the north meant nothing because the north is under the rule of King Joffrey until the Starks win their rebellion. They are nothing more than outlaws until they win their rebellion. They lost.
  10. We have to wait until we learn the criteria. The monarch of the kingdom does not get to choose who gets the sword. Rather, the Dayne family chooses from among themselves who gets the sword. What criteria they use is still an unknown. Politics and alliances may play a role as in everything else. We can look at the character of the man who last held the sword. Arthur. We know he was loyal to the Targaryens. He stayed true to Aerys until his death His prowess with the blade was unquestioned. Was known to fight fairly.

    The Freys did not exactly torture Catelyn. Catelyn killed Jinglebells. She slit his neck and so they did the same to her. They threw her body in the river.

    Pardon for Rickard Karstark

    It doesn't matter. He was the chosen heir of King Aerys II and crowned by Queen Rhaella. Beggar he might be but without doubt he was a king. So what. The Northmen killed children during their march to the south. Some got killed directly and most indirectly by the disruption they brought. The Tyrells killed Joffrey. Sandor Clegane killed Mycah. Rickard Karstark killed boys who were in training to become soldiers. It's not like they were innocent peasants.

    The Tyrion of Fevre Dream (spoiler)

    Sour Billy is the darkest side of what a mercenary is. Vargo and Bronn are fine examples of what Sour Billy will have been like in the song of ice and fire.

    Jaime cersei discovered

    The conflict will happen under this scenario because the only Stark who might be able to keep it secret is Rickon. The rest will run their mouths. The secret will be out. If this secret comes out while Robert is still alive, that would mean the deaths of Jaime and Cersei. The secret might reach the Lannisters first and that would mean the death of Robert and everyone who knows the secret. How fast the news travels and who gets the news first will determine the course of events.

    An Evil Name

    The name is evil because it could have been the name of the 13th commander who later became the Night's King. The free folk have prophecies of their own that foretell the second coming of this NK and his name is Jon Snow. He is the reincarnation of the NK. He will be resurrected by the WW. The Starks have a pattern of betrayal. Jon has already betrayed the watch twice. The third time will be final and he becomes the next Night's King.
