My mom on Grey Wind:
And the wolf…Ohhhhh my god…that Grey Wind…that wolf is gargantuan now. Gargantuan.
My mom on the direwolves:
One thing I liked is you can see the passage of time. Like, Joffrey’s gotten taller and Robb’s gotten fatter around the face. Those wolves…uh…are starting to look quite big. The size of those wolves was GINORMOUS!
I had to tell my mom that the Game of Thrones DVD set won’t be out in time for Christmas.
She comforted me.
My mom on certain characters’ BAMF statuses:
I keep reading these comments with the internet lingo and I don’t know what it means. I did figure out what BAMF means. (Me: “What do you think it means?”) Um…”Badass Motherfucker”? I don’t know how I arrived at that, but I did.
My mom on Robb’s method of dealing with grief:
Did you see the way he banged his sword? It was like he was getting out all his rage and grief. And then Catelyn says, “You broke your sword…” Like, that was the most idiotic thing you could possibly say. “You broke your sword.” Who cares? It’s a sword. He needs to let it all out. It was so idiotic.
My mom on Robb Stark’s contribution to the plot:
And what’s the oldest boy’s name? Oh…it’s Robb? Yeah, I don’t really have anything to say about him. I guess he’s just there because there always has to be a man at Winterfell or something.
