Re: Authorization
@Dr.T: Sure, but Waldur Frey was the head of House Frey -- in effect, the CEO/Chairman.

Who's going to deny authorization to the CEO?

Re: Wonderful Story about Patton
Of course, fearing the "trouble" from internal teams/people more than the "trouble" from outside threats/"enemies" can be quite dangerous for an organization's security posture. Shadow IT comes to mind -- particularly where employees are reluctant to self-report for fear of retribution up to and including termination.

Re: Spoiler alert
@ Joe - No, not really ice, but "Zombie Ice-Dragon" has a little "Je ne sais quoi".

It rolls off the tongue in ways that "Undead, ultra hot blue-fire breathing dragon" doesn't. ;)

Re: Spoiler alert
@exabeam: Tons, I imagine.

1) Be ready for anything.

2) Beware the dangers of offensive security, a.k.a. "hacking back"

3) Prioritize and protect anything proprietary lest you suffer the ill effects of reverse engineering.

That's just off the top of my head!

Are they "ice"? I couldn't tell if it was ice, really hot blue fire, or a some kind of fire/ice combination.

"Don't bother that man anymore, he knows how to do his job." That makes sense. Awareness is the key.

Re: Spoiler alert
"possible theories as to what last episode's events might possibly be building up" Wondering the same things, this is a good analogy tough.
