I was overjoyed seeing my other faves last night:   Arya, Bran, Jamie, Brienne, even The Hound who showed up just in time to recognize Arya hanging with the Brotherhood Without Banners.  Not to give away much not shown on the series yet, but if it’s true to the book, our little she-wolf and that […]
