<Yes! I think so too.  Can't wait to see how that

comes out.>

Me too! I find it sad that he couldn't confide
the secret to his wife, but her frosty attitude
toward Jon was surely one of the strongest
supports for the (dangerous) deception. In a way
though Ned  betrayed her just as much by letting
her believe he had been unfaithful as if he
actually had.

My theory is that the missing uncle from the wall
is that strange icy guy who is with Bran, he
would also know. (is that a bad comma, anyone?)

<Hmm - let me check what he is saying now about 
the next book. I haven't 
checked in about a year because it is just too 
painful.  Hmm, an update was 
added on January 4. He's not done yet, but he has

911 pages. It won't let me 
direct link to the update, but:>

Thanks for the link
