Wow, I never noticed that. Vol. 18

“Next time bite harder.” Ser Jorah shrugged. “Truth be told, I’ve seen worse jousters.”
Was that praise? “I fell off the bloody pig and bit my tongue. What could possibly be worse than that?”
Getting a splinter through your eye and dying.

- Tyrion, ADWD

May be how Jorah dies. 

If too on the nose, make it a spear.

Jon Snow is maybe replaying the beats of his own origin story in his arc.

  • In ASoS, he stands in the tent with Val and Dalla, sword in hand, to protect them while Dalla gives birth. This would be a variation on his own birth.
  • In ADwD, he switches baby Monster with baby Aemon Steelsong, passing the wildling prince as Craster's son to protect him. This is a variation on Ned passing Jon off as his bastard (and also Varys switching Prince Aegon for the baby from Pisswater Bend).
  • In ADwD, Jon takes Alys Karstark under his protection when she seeks it. This could be a variation on Rhaegar and Lyanna.

Actually, we have seen this. In the Hedge Knight, we learned that Ser Robyn Rhysling lost an eye to a splinter from a broken lance. Jorah's statement could have been intended to serve as an allusion to that.
