    Nicely spotted resemblance! The Fist of the First Men is kind of like Weathertop in Lord of the Rings, even down to a group including one more rangers being attacked by cold monsters

    Weathertop! That’s it!

    Sam took the hunting horn with him to Oldtown. GRRM did a good job playing down the importance of the horn – so much so that I didn’t pick up (on the first two re-reads) on the fact Samwell takes the horn with him on his journey south.

    LOL, gotta love Amin naming the episode “Cold” just to make sure we don’t forget his theory.

    I’m kind of worried about Kyle meeting Mimi, and the shocking things she might do to him…..

  6. Well, there wasn’t exactly much else to name it (a quiet chapter reread episode), though I did consider Pray, Die, Run.

    The name was very fitting. Even your voices sounded cold to me.
    Were you drinking shadow wine?

    I am enjoying all these chapter parallels and theories. Looking forward to more rereads.

    Renly does refer to Davos, when he tells Stannis his host is made up of “Onion Knights and Coddfish Lords” A Lot of people make that reference to Davos, obliquely calling him the turnup knight other mocking terms.
