jeb said: I also am wondering about Cutter asking Strongbow to take his place when the little pod gathers them up. Take his place where? As acting chief? Why Strongbow when that's traditionally been Treestump's position. There was really no need for the comment storywise so I wonder if that will mean something later.
I was wondering the same thing and then I remembered that Treestump isn't spending as much time in the Holt now as he is working the forges. Strongbow is in the Holt, he's closer and he also has a lot more years on him that he didn't have in the OQ and SaBM. So it makes sense.
