Craving Peaches Posted February 5 Share Posted February 5 (edited) As others have said, it was addressed to the rest of the Watch as well. Even if it wasn't, an attack on Jon is an implied attack on the Watch as Jon is Lord Commander of the Watch. If I threaten to attack the Prime Minister it will likely be seen as a threat to attack the UK Government. 44 minutes ago, Chaircat Meow said: 2. No he doesn't. Bowen never suggests attacking Stannis or trying to help the Boltons defeat their enemies. He did want to make Slynt Lord Commander as a signal to Lord Tywin that the watch wasn't siding with Stannis (a terrible plan, btw) but that's all. No one in text ever claims that amounts to 'taking part' as Lord Commanders are partly chosen for their ability to deal with other lords and the king. Bowen wants to acquiesce to Tywin's demands. At that point the Watch is siding with Tywin so is no longer neural. Being neutral means not aligning the Watch with anyone.
