** They are stated to be a symbol of forbidden love and the central theme of Bael the Bard's legend of [[AbductionIsLove his affair with Lord Stark's daughter]].
** Blue roses appear again with Lyanna in Theon's nightmare of the Winterfell crypts.

** In her first chapter Sansa thinks of Bran and that she'd give everything to be with him in Winterfell. [[spoiler: In this case she's actually ''lucky'', since Theon betrays Robb, Winterfell ends up in the firing line of the Ironborn invasion and Theon states he could have forced Sansa to marry him to strengthen his claim of Winterfell, and regrets not having her around.]]
** While prisoner in the Riverlands, Arya hears an old man lamenting that none of this mess would have happened during the old king's reign. Arya thinks he was referring to King Robert, but the old man meant [[TheCaligula King Aerys]].
*** What is even more ironic is that the earlier stages of Aerys' reign were relatively peaceful due to Tywin Lannister's administration, and Tywin Lannister is now the one who is making the Riverlands bleed.
