I was underwhelmed, too, but they intentionally chose an actor who looked a whole bunch like the actor who played Viserys, Rhaegar's brother. I can see the reasoning behind it, what with the inbreeding and all it seems they'd look alot alike. I actually thought it was the same actor, and had to check online to make sure that V & R weren't supposed to be twins.

Agreed.

And armor is probably useless against 98% of the hits you'd take from The Mountain anyway, considering his reach and power.

Correct.

I think Ned's iron clad honor required him to protect Jon per his word to his sister.

To the point he told no one, not even his wife and sent Jon to the wall to protect him.

Probably part of the reason Ned stayed in the North for years, never coming to the Capital after the wars. The King had to come find him to get him to be his hand.

Ned fully intended to tell Jon. At one point, way back in season one, he even said to Jon: "I'll tell you all about your mother one day."

Of course, Sir Chokes A Lot put an abrupt end to that before he could tell him.

Ned understood, perhaps better than most, how far Robert's hatred ran for the Targaryeans. This was, after all, the reason for the war (Robert's Rebellion) and all the crap that came with it. It was Robert that sanctioned the (foiled) killing of Danny by the poisoner in the market. Even the Lannisters, evil as they are, didn't have Gregor kill Elia and her children for shits and giggles; they did it as a dowry for Robert to marry their daughter.

Early on in the show - pre well known army of the dead - the Wall was a relatively safe place for Jon. Which was why Ned had no problems with him taking the black. Better to keep him safe, far away, and his true identity a secret from Robert.

Ned loved Robert like a brother, but he understood how much power had changed him, and - aside from Bran now - he was the only one who truly knew Robert's Rebellion was built on a lie.

Of course the directors told us all this was going to happen in one of the very first episodes, when the Stark children find the direwolf (Stark sigil) dying, look at what killed it. It's an antler from a stag (Baratheon sigil) still stuck in the wolf's fur. But the pups survive (Stark children).

It's the whole first few seasons wrapped up in one sneaky easter egg.

I'm actually surprised it's taken this long.

Damn.

quote:
Data published by piracy monitoring firm MUSO suggests that the seventh season of Game of Thrones was pirated more than one billion times. Most of the traffic was generated by unauthorized streaming services, with torrent and direct downloads accounting for just a small piece of the pie, roughly fifteen percent.

...

To put this into perspective, this means that on average each episode was pirated 140 million times, compared to 32 million views through legal channels.

The vast majority of the pirate ‘views’ came from streaming services (85%), followed by torrents (9%) and direct downloads (6%). Private torrent trackers are at the bottom with less than one percent.
