    Why did Benjen join the Night Watch?
    Not that I blame him.I would join the Night watch if I could,but was there a reason for him to do that?

    I recall reading somewhere that a Brother of the Nights Watch talked to Benjen during the Tourney At Harrenhal, and that, among other factors, influenced him to go.

    Well, the Starks are supposed to consider the Night's Watch a noble calling, so he's not necessarily being punished for anything. It's likely enough that someone did just persuade him, like Ned tried to persuade the lords and knights in King's Landing.

    Patkun makes his triumphant return!
    I don't expect I was missed.

    Lol, nice!

    And yeah, I don't think it really mentioned too much about Benjen.

    Awesome... now I'm supposed to be re-reading it, but Darkwitch Rising has me hooked (6th re-read), and I decided to skip the other WoT books for now to read New Spring. :D
