My mom is from Babatngon about 2 hours from Tacloban City. She said everyone in her province (or village not sure) is safe, but 80% of the roofs were ripped off and lots of people running out of food.
So not sure about the whole 10,000 people death toll, but that's all I'm hearing on the news lo...

I don't think you can't stream ESPN3 from your mobile via chromecast. It doesn't support watchESPN app, and if I'm not mistaken you can't stream ESPN3 from chrome browser on mobile. I don't think you can stream from chrome browser on mobile anyway (except youtube), only laptop/pc. So if you want ...

Well, the Ironborn [i]are[/i] First Men, so I think there definitely could be skinchangers there. As for the sea dragon, there's Nagga's Bones. But I read the the theory that Nagga's Bones may actually petrified weirwood, which may indicate that the Old Gods were worshiped there.

There's also Egg's son Dunk who gave up the crown for Jenny of Oldstones (First Men). Jenny of Oldstones was friends with the woods witch (probably the Ghost of High Heart who said she had enough grief at Summerhall) that prophesized the PtwP.
They end up dieing at Summerhall probably trying to ...

Sauron became more active in Dol Guldor around the same time Gollum found the ring. The White Council was formed with Saruman as it's leader. Galadriel and Gandalf were also a part of it.

You would think Bran would be able to at least recognize his voice unless it changed or something. I really hope Benjen isn't Coldhands.
And since we're talking about Benjen and the raven, here's what it had to say about Benjen:

Nah, they only became Lord Paramount after they helped Aegon in his conquest. Harren the Black was king over the Riverlands during the conquest. The Riverlands were fought over a lot I think, but the Tullys were never kings.
