* Littlefinger tells Ned that Starks melt when they come below the neck. This makes sense with the whole "Starks as ice" thing they've got going, but also remember that Ned's father was burned alive when he went to King's Landing.

He and his brother were both kings (though few other than himself supported his claim to be a king), and were enemies of each other. His MoralEventHorizon was committing human sacrifice to appease his new god(s). He was ultimately defeated by an army from Winterfell. Now am I talking about Stannis Baratheon or the Night's King?

* The title "A Feast for Crows". It seems to refer to the fact the war is over and crows are now feasting on Westeros, a major part of the book being the fallout of the war. However, it could also refer to Euron Greyjoy, "the Crow's Eye". In this book he finally appears, [[spoiler:becomes King of the Iron Islands, and begins his campaign to conquer Westeros, one of the chapters he appears in even has him at a feast. A feast for crows indeed.]]

I don't see how this is Fridge Brilliance. This is just plot.
* In ''A Dance of Dragons'', Jon Snow is making plans to send Arya to a noble family in one of the Free Cities away from the conflict between the opposing kings if she comes to look for him at the Wall. By that point, Arya is already in Braavos. This is thanks to Jaqen H'ghar, who would have been one of his black brothers if not for a series of events that prevented him from reaching the Wall and Arya from returning to Winterfell. The result is Jaqen giving Arya the coin that lets her board a ship to Braavos and then join the House of Black and White, probably a place she feels more comfortable and fulfilled than a noble household. (Even if Arya had managed to return to Winterfell in the second book, if everything else remains the same, she would still have to escape at some point, so it's just as well she is away from most of the political conflict at the point the series has paused.)

I;m pretty sure that characters talk about this.
* Might be too obvious to count as fridge, but every region has a unique surname to give bastards. In the North, it's Snow, in the Vale, it's Stone, in Pyke, it's Pyke (as in the fish), in the Reach, it's Flowers, in the Riverlands, it's Rivers, in Dorne, it's Sand. That is, all regions name their bastards after something there is an abundance of.

This is a popular fan theory on the internet, but for right now it's just WMG. Also remember to avoid the use of "I" in Fridge.
* Doubling with FridgeHorror: I had for a long time thought Tywin is being foolishly unreasonable when he says he has doubts Tyrion is his son, given how much he loved his wife (and we have no reason to think she didn't love him back just as much), but then I remembered Tywin actually has a reason to have doubts, as there was someone else who had his eyes on said wife, too: ''Aerys, the Mad King''. Who's to say Aerys didn't rape her?
