You haven't been spoiled, leegoesplaces--I added that spoiler tag, and have absolutely no idea if your assertion was true or false.

But you did not "speculate" on the issue--you reported something you'd heard elsewhere on the internet, about a fact that we have not yet reached. It's still a spoiler, even if you are relating it second-hand and don't remember the source.

Ahh, fair enough. I guess I wasn't clear - what I had seen elsewhere on the internet was supposedly an alternative interpretation of the scene we'd already read, not what happened down the road.

Okay, that makes sense. Well, rest assured that I have no more foreknowledge than you w/r/t this issue, so don't infer anything from the spoiler tag.

Cheers,

Be carful if you're a night owl in any other time zone besides the Pacific. If you post something at 2:55 a.m. on the east coast for instance, thinking you're following that days spoiler line, it's still only up to the previous day's spoiler line by forum time.
