    How good a swordsman is Jon actually?

    Hopefully they are just saving it for Arya-Jon, so Jon can say something like 'He died right in front of me'. Let's hope that's it. Then again... they used Rickon as a mere set-up to the hilarious joke that Dickon Tarly's name... (drum roll) ...sounds like Dick. So while I share your hopes, I'm not sure it's likely they'll be fulfilled.

    PTSD does not mean 'complete erasure of their humanity'. Humans would ask about their possibly dead brother. The only one that this is excused for is Bran, who has been effectively mind-raped by the sheer amount of info he has, not to mention he's probably seen Rickon die. But Arya not asking about Rickon, when she asked about fucking Lewyn? I don't buy it.

    At least one mention of Rickon would be nice. I mean, after all, aren't the Stark reunions so desired because we were invested in them as characters? And wouldn't it be, you know, fucking human of them to ask, 'Hey, Bran's alive, what happened to our poor baby brother Rickon'? Or, you know, words to that effect. Seriously, unless they're trying to imply the Starks are all sociopaths and that audiences just want people with the surname Stark to be shoved together in a 'there you are, you fucking got what you wanted, money pls' level of bored disinterest, then I don't understand why they're trying their damnedest to completely suck the humanity out of the Starks.

    A Stark reunion that lasted all of five seconds, stretched plausibility, and was only SATISFYINGâ„¢ in the bare basic 'a Stark met another Stark' way. Speaking of which, have you guys noticed how freaking hollow the Stark reunions have been? It's not helped by the fact nobody brings up Rickon's death. Like, at all. It makes the family dynamics feel as hollow as D & D's skulls.

    Lol at the level 99 swordsman thing. In RPG terms, he has: Weapon: Valyrian Steel Sword Shield: That guards the realms of men Headgear: Nothing, Jon Snow Bodygear: Plot Armour Accessory: Anti-hypothermia Amulet

    As strong as the plot demands him to be. It doesn't matter in the context of the story, all you need to know is he'll never lose a sword fight again in the series. So for all intents and purposes he's the best, now.
