I haven't read the entire discussion yet, but I thought it would be a few days until I was able to catch up, so forgive me if someone has already mentioned it... But did Jaime quote Jon? With the "they say the best swords have names"? That's exactly what he says to Arya when he gives her needle, isn't it? I was just thinking if the writers were intentionally drawing a parallel, and if they were, what could it mean....
