    I believe that was Styr, Magnar of Thenn. Thenn are Northmen who are gathering nder Mance Rayder. I don't remember them being described with the scars, but they sure looked menacing. They had been raiding below the wall, hence them taking the other wildlings by surprise.

    I think the Thenn's just like raiding in the South because they are cannibals and find people south of the wall nice and fat.
    Yep. As was alluded to in this last episode, the wildlings have never formed more than about 15 people together in a band before there's all kinds of in-fighting and a dissolution of the pact. It's either a testament to Mance or perhaps to how scared they are of the White Walkers that 100k of them are together. There's also going to be some bickering, which we have seen with the Thenns vs. Ygritte's tribe.

    The Thenns are another tribe of wildlings. They were from North of the Wall as well. I'm not sure if they explain it well in the show, but in the books, Tormund's group was just one of a few that went over the Wall. The other thing that the books stress is that the wildlings don't all like each other. They're held together in Mance's army primarily by fear of the Others.

    Yea, I don't think it is a spoiler, but in the book, a lot more "wildlings" made it over the Wall with Jon and Ygrette, before he escaped. The show was cooler to have the ice crash down and a lot fewer made it. The addition of the Thenns now restores the threat South of the Wall.

    The Thenns are from very far north and are different than the other Wildlings. Check out this map, Thenn is the northernmost mapped area.

    Samwell Tarly doesn't like Thenns.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 4

    Am I supposed to hate or love Daenerys Targaryen? Because her storyline leads me to believe she's supposed to be one of the antagonists in the series, yet she's my second favorite character.

    I'd say you're supposed to love her. Her story is a journey of weakness to power, that's a traditional "hero" path. Where it deviates is that most times, the story ends after the hero gets the power. Hers goes on from there. Her tale drags a little bit in the books, but the show does a pretty good job of smoothing that out.

    Minor space-time pet peeve with the TV show. So they end Season 2 with an army of Others bearing down on Sam. Those dudes get lost? They should have easily made it to the Wall by now, lol.

    They get easily distracted in their artistic endeavors of arranging hacked up horse parts into interesting geometric patterns.

    Red Wedding. One of those things you just couldn't help but see coming as soon as Robb Stark decides to ask the Freys to help them sack Casterly Rock after outright slapping Walder Frey in the face by not following through with the terms of alliance by marrying one of his daughters. But yet as soon as Cat Stark pulls back that man's sleeve and he's wearing the ring mail, I still couldn't help but say "Oh, ****".
