I could have, and I even understand your point. I am just doing what people do, replying to a point. I really think you can make these arguments with books, but tv shows are constrained by time, budgets, technology, and all sorts of things.

But I listen to other points of view, so I did let your art flow over me.

They will have to put two and two together, which I believe I mentioned. They will have to believe the Three Eyed Raven that Jon is the child of Rhaegar and Lianna as well. Seems a stretch.

And, this may seem like a silly question, but it bothers me in all shows that have battle scenes....horses are falling over left and right - seems like they would get hurt since even a stumble can cause them to break a leg. Is this something they are trained to do, and how do they do it safely?

I often fast forward the battle scenes because it is so upsetting to watch the horses.
I hope you watched the Battle of the Bastards at least because that was probably the best medieval battle scene I've ever watched. And there were few scenes with horses.

They don't really have to make a happy baby cry. They could just have the sound effects and it appears they're crying because you can't really see their face. Or it could be that the babies cried so they incorporated it into the scene. I'm sure the poor baby won't be crying too much if they end up with a nice college fund (assuming their parents don't blow all the money).

His wolf was really big. Not dire wolf size, of course, but bigger than any German shepherd I have ever seen. Anyway, one day, I was at his house and I made myself a sandwich in the kitchen. I put it down on the counter right next to me while I put the stuff back in the refrigerator. I turned back to the sandwich, but it wasn't there. I thought I was going crazy. Did I put it somewhere else? I had drank a few beers prior, maybe I put it somewhere else? So I made another sandwich, and again, the same exact thing happened. It was gone. I thought my friend was messing with me, until I looked at the doorway, and saw the end of the wolf's snout sticking out. He was in the next room waiting for me to make the next sandwich. It amazed me that this big beast could sneak by me within inches, and silently steal a sandwich off the counter and escape with it without me hearing a thing. I have had a lot of respect for wolves ever since.
I think I would make that guy put his wolf outside or in a kennel before I went to his house. Yikes!

Then I don't think you would be going to his house. LOL. Those two were inseparable.
