Can we confirm that Karstark was recast for season 2? That he's not the same guy as in the season 1 finale? If so, we should add a "Behind the Scenes" section to state this.--The Dragon Demands 21:04, May 17, 2012 (UTC)

The season 1 guy was credited as Rickard Karstark. It is confirmed he was recast. It is even listed at --Gonzalo84 21:12, May 17, 2012 (UTC)
Done. How does that look?--Opark 77 21:15, May 17, 2012 (UTC)


I was checking for quotes for the episode "A Man Without Honor" and I came across something odd. In the scene where Jaime is about to get lynched by the northernness, Catelyn calls Rickard Karstark a "ser". He's not a knight in books and it seems odd that a northern man to the bone like Lord Rickard would be a knight. Here's the quote:

Rickard Karstark: I will have his head, and if you try and stop me--
Catelyn Stark: You will strike me down? Have you forgotten me, ser? I am the widow of you liege lord, Eddard Stark! I am the mother of your king!

What do you think? Is it a script error or is he really a knight? ----Martell (talk) 21:51, October 16, 2012 (UTC)

Its almost certainly just an ad-lib by the actor, possibly not in the script, and should be ignored rather than jumping to the conclusion that he's a knight in this continuity.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 22:22, October 16, 2012 (UTC)

"ser" is the equivalent of "mister" or "sir". Like saying "excuse me sir" or "excuse me ma'am.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 04:53, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

I agree that in this instance it was used as an honorific in mock respect rather than a title. Of course TV Rickard Karstark holds to the seven so he might yet prove to be a knight, I just don't think we can use this as definitive evidence.--Opark 77 (talk) 22:33, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

That mention of "the Father" could've also just been to talk to Catelyn in her own terms. Or like the Stark children who hold to both the Old Gods and the New.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 22:48, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

I also think he could have just been talking to Catelyn in her own terms, rather than assume that TV-Rickard holds to the Seven.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:33, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
