Remember my real nameEdit

Did Brynden say "they don't remember my real name", or "I've been calling myself Blackfish for so long, I don't remember my real name" -- and he just slurred "I" in such a way that it sounded like "they"? Because he said "myself", which I thought implied he was speaking reflexively -- if he'd been worried about what "they" called him, he would have said "men have been calling me Blackfish for so long they don't remember my real name" -- instead, "I have been calling myself Blackfish for so long that I don't remember my own name" sounds like a more appropriate joke.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:53, April 15, 2013 (UTC)

The full line goes: "He (Hoster) asked me to stop calling myself Blackfish. He said it was an old joke and it was never funny to begin with. I told him people have been calling me Blackfish for so long they don't remember my real name." Brynden sure slurs a bit, but that's the gist of it. --Martell (talk) 19:08, April 15, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, right he said "other people" not "myself" - that would indeed lean more towards "they". Any outside chance he said "I"? Let's leave it as "they" for now, we need to check the subtitles later (it might help if a foreign-dubbed version in different language in which "they" and "I" sound more distinct says it differently). We'll check back on this when we get those.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 19:14, April 15, 2013 (UTC)

Is he dead?Edit

He attended the wedding, and was in the main room where everyone was slaughtered... he dosent die in the books, but did anyone see him alive/hostage taken in all that mess? or did they decide to kill him too like they did with Talisa? Noc noc... whos their?

As noted on the Red Wedding page, he wasn't in the main room; he left to take a piss outside; I assume they just didn't want TV-first fans to think something was suspicious by leaving him behind - but Brynden is always one for dramatic escapes - I imagine he'll be back in Riverrun next episode.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 03:28, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
As mentioned during a discussion between Walder Frey and Roose Bolton in the season finale, Brynden Tully managed to escape the Red Wedding; as you said, this is presumably because he serendipitously left the hall just before the carnage in order to "find a tree to piss on."

Season 4??Edit

Where has it been confirmed that Clive Russell will reprise his role for Season 4? I see he's listed for it but don't see any reference to back it up. Was this just a troll job that slipped past most of you or what? 17:47, February 17, 2014 (UTC)
