So I'm kind of new to the whole podcast and forum thing, so pardon me if I'm in the wrong place or doing something incorrectly.
I am in the process of this spoilore episode, awaiting the podcast over episode 3 and I hit this thought and wanted to post a speculation. What about Brienne being the "mysterious hooded character who murders people randomly" (obviously not an exact quote from anywhere). I feel like we ended the books with that character probably being some of the various spearwives maybe? But damn there's so much information in those books that I forget what we know and what's just speculation. Anyway, I agree that she couldn't be any sort of entertainment type, but maybe she could be secretly killing people to help avenge Lady Cat?
I also agree that Theon saving Sansa would be much more meaningful, especially to show watchers who never even really met Jeyne Poole (I mean book readers barely did). I think that would be good for his character and give him that much more redemption. Does he deserve redemption? I don't know...but does anyone deserve Ramsay (except maybe Joff but we're past that)?
Oh, also I always pronounce Jaqen like the French would say Jacque+n? Like a soft J...ZH-ock-en...anyway might help some of your issues if you want. At least in my head it sounds better...since we don't have nice British accents to make everything sound better, haha.
