Game of Thrones: Season 6, Episode 3 (“Oathbreaker”)

We meet young Ned Stark (Robert Aramayo) in a flashback scene!

WHO broke an oath (as mentioned in the title)?

Ned – Hmmm… this is debateable.  Ned fudged on the REAL story of what happened at the Tower of Joy; he said that HE defeated the Knight of the Morning- Ser Arthur Dayne (Luke Roberts) in combat BUT it was actually Howland Reed (one of the Crannogmen; father of Jojen and Meera) who stabbed Dayne in the back.  Now we know exactly WHY Ned held Howland in such high regard.  Aramayo’s accent was spot-on, as was the way he moved while sword fighting, and walking- making him a quite convincing Ned!

Smalljon Umber – Yes, he broke his oath to the Starks, the family that the Umbers had been allied w/ for generations.  The actor (Dean S. Jagger) did a good job w/ this role!

Jon – FINALLY, he is leaving Castle Black.  He is free to try to take back Winterfell- YAY!  Since he died, then maybe he didn’t break his oath to the Night’s Watch as some podcasters/viewers/critics said)?
