I was FLOORED when Jon was stabbed and after being depressed for a day, I've decided that I'm going to 'keep the faith' and Melisandre will save him by giving him the breath of life (or whatever they call it). My only fear is that it'll change him in some way or he'll lose some part of himself like Beric Dondarrion did. But I'm convinced that he's got a large role to play (since I believe he's Rhaegar's & Lyanna's son and is the prophesized Azor Azai) and I think this is somehow how the "real" sword of flame comes to be instead of the fake one that Stannis had. (Unless Beric's sword is the real sword.) I also still believe he's got some role to play with Dany, esp. after her vision of the blue rose on the ice wall in the House of the Undying.
I know it was an awful way to die, but I'm glad they wrapped up Quentyn's storyline. It just didn't make sense for him to be one of the dragon riders. Which brings me to Aegon being alive - OMG!! That's what I love about GRRM - I didn't see that one coming at all! I'm guessing Lenore = Ashara Dayne, so I'm wondering if this is how Ser Barristan will be able to confirm to Dany that Aegon is, in fact, her nephew?
Arya!! I love that we learn she hasn't lost her "reason" for becoming an assassin and I can't wait for her to return to Westeros. And it seems that being a warg runs deeply in the Stark family. It seemed she slipped into the cat more easily than Bran did the ravens. Speaking of Bran - I'm a little nervous about Melisandre seeing his 'teacher' in her flames. Was that a good vision or a bad vision? And I love how Bran spoke to Theon through the heart tree.
The walk Cersei took - wow; that brought all the wind out of her sails, eh? I'm curious to see what will happen at her trial, esp. since I suspect Tyrion is meant to have a hand in her death and he's half a world away.
Nice to see Varys back and to have some backstory on him. With his intentions always seeming unclear, I'm glad we finally have an idea where his loyalties lie.
