Let me start with I haven’t read the books. All I know is from the TV show. I really didn’t understand why Jamie had on his father’s leather coat. If his father died the day Jamie was flogged, he would have been put in a coffin, moved to his home and buried. It was implied in the episode that that’s what happened; that while his father was watching the flogged, he fell over and died. If this is true, the father, Brian, would not have been re-dressed for burial, especially if he was already in his “Sunday best”. Any other thoughts on this matter?
