    That was actually my theory for the final book, as in Clash of Kings (and maybe season 2) they kept emphasizing that Aerys had stashes of wildfire all over the city. Could that be foreshadowing a huge explosion towards the end of the story?

    Shae: “Knock Knock.”
    Tyrion: “Who’s there?”
    Shae: “Whores”
    Tyrion: “Ah, so that’s where you are!”

    Yoosteen Bose,

    Most of that got used up in the Battle of Blackwater.

    Davos: “Knock, Knock”
    Stannis: “Who’s there?”
    Davos: “Your daughter has greyscale”
    Stannis: “Heh, good one.”

    I was under the impression that the pyromancers made most of what was used in the battle of the Blackwater fresh, and were surprised at their yield (since, unbeknownst to them, dragons live in the world again). Further, “hidden stashes” wouldn’t necessarily be the same as the pyromancers’ supply, especially given how many secret and unknown passages/chambers there are in King’s Landing.

    Nobody mentioning the song? I especially like the t(w)oo many Freys, hehe. ;)

    (But why only four direwolves? And I can’t understand what she sings about at number 6)

    ” Too many Freys” True ‘dat!

    #6 is 6 skins a changing. AKA warging.

    Er…well, there were six dire wolves to begin with. Then ‘Lady’, Sansa’s wolf, kicked it in book 1. Then there were five dire wolves. Let’s just say that as of the latest book, the four dire wolf count is accurate.

    The ‘skinchangers’ or wargs are something that really hasn’t been addressed in the TV show yet.

    Skinchangers, or wargs, are people that have a sort of special link with an animal and are able to see and sense what that animal sees and senses.

    We get some glimpses of Bran using this warg ability with his wolf, Summer, in Season 2. However, for various reasons that will become apparent later, it is assumed that all the Stark children – Rob, Sansa, Arya, Bran, Rickon, and the bastard Jon – have a talent for warging. Thus, six skins-a-changing.

    Also, among the wildlings, there is a well-known warg named Varamyr Six-Skins, because he has a bond with six different animal allies.

    SO the song could refer to either.

    I’m a bit disappointed that eight wasn’t eight Sand Snakes.

    Hertolo,

    #6 is “Sixskins of changing”, a reference to Varamyr Sixskins.

    Ok, here is a more traditional one.

    Luwin: “Knock Knock”
    Catelyn: “Who’s there?”
    Luwin: “Ned’s dead”
    Catelyn: “Ned’s dead who?”
    Luwin: “Ned’s dead, baby. Ned’s dead”

    And go see Django.

    The song was done for The Podcast of Ice and Fire special Christmas Filks edition. (more songs were done) It really wasn’t done for the TV show but rather the books. But it was masterfully done.

    Podcast episode – singing starts at 59 minutes

    Here is the forum thread on APOIAF that discusses the filks –

    I can definitely tell you that yes the 4 Direwolves are because in the books there are 4 living Direwolves
