Stannis' Reminder That Ned Wasn't Dishonourable
Ned Stark died for his honour in season one, and it's always a mystery how such a good man, who seems so devoted to his wife and family, could cheat — and in his first year of marriage no less. We're reminded of that fact this season when Stannis and his wife, Selyse, are discussing Jon, and she refers to him as the son of "some tavern slut." Stannis retorts, "Perhaps. That wasn't Ned Stark's way." No. It was not.
