he is Sam's younger brother? he looks older though and the actor is older.
I thought if you a lord, you can do as you please i.e if you choose to make your younger son your heir, you can do so. But I thought Sam was the younger brother, who wouldn't be the first heir in the first place and Randyl banished him to the wall to add a final insult to injury.

How can there be spoilers already...12 more hours.

Yeah I agree. I think the dude is also taller than the current mountain, and is the appropriate age. I just got done talking about Sam & Dickon, well, this mountain actor is like 20 years younger than the hound actor.

No one wants to read a story where bad things just keep happening forever.
Interesting link, there. Dunno if this applies but I dumped the Walking dead for similar reasons; other than the seasons just sucking the latest season largely seemed like a whole season of filler where the good guys don't get anything accomplished by the finale.
Thrones is different in the fact that there hasn't been much filler but the winning side has been on the villain side for so much of the time...if that's what would end up being how the story finishes I'd say it's pretty weak. There's no payoff.

I always get the idea that they were in love and Robert and Aerys were just idiots.
What if...Petyr started the rumor that Lyanna was kidnapped and raped, when the reality is that Lyanna chose to go with Rhaegar?
