* PetFadStarter: The popularity of the direwolves led to an increased demand for wolf-like dog breeds such as the Siberian Husky. Unfortunately people tend to highly underestimate the amount of time and experience these kinds of dogs need, not to mention the space (a big kennel/garden is absolutely mandatory!) and the expenses for food, bills etc., [[FanDumb which is why many of them end up in shelters eventually.]] So tropers, think this through!

* MetaCasting: Theon Greyjoy is a wastrel and ButtMonkey who lives in the shadow of his sister. Creator/AlfieAllen is the younger brother of the singer Music/LilyAllen, and as for the butt monkey and wastrel part, she wrote a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lki-nBllz78 very unflattering song]] about him. Further in this vein, Lily was originally approached to play Theon's sister Yara (see WhatCouldHaveBeen).

** According to Creator/IsaacHempsteadWright, there was supposed to be scene in the Season 7 finale which was cut where Sansa would go to Bran and asked for his help. [[spoiler:This probably indicates that the feud between Sansa and Arya is real and not staged as what viewers believed but this scene might also make Bran a DeusExMachina who would eventually solve the feud in a snap]].
