    Anything North of the Wall.
    When Jon captures Ygritte and the Black Brothers kill her companions she tells them to burn the corpses.

    Thank you kind sir. I thought so. Just couldn’t think of any examples in the moment.

    Shame on you for not knowing Septa Unella! She was at Ice & Fire Con! Also the most badass Shits I Don’t Give Septa in the series.

    I have failed this city. 🙁

    Good episode. I was slightly disappointed by Amin’s use of the term ‘plot armor’, because it’s a bullshit concept, but good discussion around a fantastic episode of the TV Show.

    does stannis still have control over dragonstone after he left for the north with all of his troops?

    FTWard is probably right but his evidence is not proof. It could be that the wildlings burn the any body (even if the death wasn’t caused by Other’s hands) just as a precaution, because they saw what might happen if they didn’t.

    “And Torwynd … it was the cold claimed him. Always sickly, that one. He just up and died one night. The worst o’ it, before we ever knew he’d died he rose pale with them blue eyes.”

    Not certain what you require for proof.

    Ok, now that’s proof. I didn’t remember they said more than just “burn the dead”.
