HBO: Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones edges ever closer to revealing the biggest thing that Jon Snow doesn't know: that he is Jon Targaryen. House Slate hosts Marc Faletti and Amanda Marcotte worry that the un-bastard's undeath is not going to be as simple as it seems. 

Oaths are taken very seriously in Westeros, but, as this episode makes clear, some promises are too terrible to keep. Except for that terrible Smalljon Umber, breaking his family's oath to support the Starks. What does he have against sweet little Rickon?
