There is often overlap between Martin's telling of the various parallel plot-lines, so it's difficult to determine the precise chronology of events. (Ned's death could have coincided with or preceded the Battle of the Whispering Woods. For example, a crow may have been en route while the battle was still raging). The chronology of events in ASoIaF matters less than when the POV characters learn of those events. The chapter where Ned is executed does comes before the one describing the capture of Jaime, though.
My hope was that the director(s) would have used some CG trickery to make the direwolves appear bigger than they are now to make it clear that they aren't regular wolves. Direwolves are supposed to be much larger than regular wolves. For the enormous budget of the series, I'm surprised and somewhat disappointed by the relative paucity of CGI (it's been mostly reserved for blood, gore, ravens, and static castle/environment scenes).
Rainman On Fire
Infuriated (in his own special way) by the kidnapping of Dakota Fanning by thugs from a Tijuanan drug cartel, Dakota's autistic savant bodyguard, Raymond Babbit, seeks bloody revenge in the only way he know how - killing everyone in the Mexican phonebook he memorized back in 1998 - well, that is until People's Court comes on: "Guadalupe Antonia Suarez, 10961 Del Roble Road, Guadalajara Mexico. Definitely, definitely came to kill you. Uh oh! Three minutes, 42 seconds to Wapner."
