Re: Game of Thrones
i forget how it was in the show (because i'm now reading the book), but when Jon mentions there are only five pups, its supposed to be one of those character defining moments that shows how cool of a dude he is.
he gives up a chance to have one of the pups by saying its basically destiny for the Starks to have the direwolfs, with there being five true children and five of the wolfs. its practically that sacrifice on its own that causes Ned to allow them to keep them.
he finds his own though, which is of course Ghost, the white one who is slightly different, which is a metaphor in itself. great moment for Jon though.
pretty sure thats how it was in the show, but while reading the book, my memory of the Game of Thrones is being re-written.
cool and smooth, that's how i play.
