The Reeds Posted March 5, 2012 Share Posted March 5, 2012 I put a spoiler warning in the title just in case, but I don't know if this spoils very much.....Anyway, I wanted to talk about Meera's story. This part really interested me when I was reading it. It's the part where Meera tells Bran about the crannogman that goes ashore and finds himself at a tournament. He's then set upon and beat up by people from three different houses, one of them being House Frey. He's rescued by a she-wolf, who asks him to eat with them. He's dines sits with her and talks with one of her brothers. The next day, a mystery knight bests all the other riders on the field and tells them to reward him by teaching their squires to be respectful. He vanishes afterwards and no one finds him again.I'm of the opinion that this was more than a story and it actually happened, especially since Jojen keeps asking Bran, "Didn't your father tell you this story?" I'm guessing the mystery knight was Howland Reed and the she-wolf was Lyanna. The question is, who was the brother in the story? Was it Brandon, Benjen or Ned? If it was Ned who was there, then I wonder why he wouldn't have told anyone about this meeting?I also wonder who the other two houses were that attack the crannogman when he was attacked at the tournament. Anyone have any ideas?I don't know, I guess I think this might be important eventually, just as I have a hunch that House Reed will play a big role for the Starks at the end of the book.
