A LOT went down on Game of Thrones last night, especially for Jon Snow and the wildlings of Hardhome.
But while the battle raged, book-readers were treated to a subtle introduction of everyone's favorite giant: Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun!
In the books, Wun-Wun ends up staying at Castle Black after Jon finds him in the forest. They become buddies, with Wun-Wun teaching Jon about the Giants' language and culture.
Wun-Wun is also noted for being the only canon vegetarian in the A Song Of Ice And Fire series. He's really into turnips.
Wun-Wun's character also has mythic status among fans for being an in-joke between author George R.R. Martin and his friend Patrick St. Denis.
Martin, a fan of the New York Giants, made a bet with Denis, a Dallas Cowboys supporter: If the Cowboys ever had a better season than the Giants then George would write Denis as a character into his books...and kill him violently.
When George lost the bet, he wrote a character called Ser Patrek of King's Mountain, designed his heraldry to resemble the Dallas Cowboys' logo...and had Wun-Wun (a GIANT, get it?) tear the character apart!
