unless the many faced god is an extension of the Great Other...as the drowned god may be

I dunno about the god of many faces... Basically he's the god of death while R'hllor - Light, Day, Fire and TGO - Darkness, Night, and Ice...

 

If you'll remember, though, Jaqen H'ghar allowing Arya 3 deaths for the "red god"... But as a Faceless man, you wouldn't think he'd be concerned about repayment to R'hllor... unless the MFG is a servant of the higher gods R'hllor and TGO... Basically doing business with both...

 

Syrio also alludes to the god of death and peoples' ability to go against it, so the MFG might not be such a god at all...

TBQH she has never really had a big role in the books post RW... even before, really... The show did her character up a little...

As far as Rickon, he's pretty much an afterthought in the books as well... He hasn't even been mentioned for a couple books really.

For the show...

Next week's preview shows Sam and Pyp looking down at something...

Do you think this is them at the Wall looking down, and we'll get an assault on the wall this week?

Also, we see Bran and co. at what appears to be the Nightfort... Do you think this is earlier in the episode and Sam is the one scaring them , causing Meera to draw her blade? Or, do you think we'll actually get a Coldhands character and he's the one that comes for them? If the former, do you think if it IS Sam, we'll still get a Coldhands this season or do you think Sam will just show them the way through the wall?

What about the children of the Forrest? Don't they pray to the old 7? They get power

There isn't an old 7... there are the old gods... and yes, the COF, what's left of them, worship the old gods... They're more of a "nature gods" type thing without malice, and don't really have much power other than via wierwoods... which Bran may well become a god himself by using...

 

IIRC all that is left of the COF are hole up in a cave system with Bran because of the Others outside...meaning they are pretty much powerless against TGO...

Thanks for the info. Always confused me. I was on the official asoiaf forum and they where talking about why exactly jaquen said red god instead of the mfg like they are suppose to worship. Is that cause fire was going to kill them or has he broken off cause when arya asked about him no one knows who he is

He said it in the books too IIRC... I took it to mean that the many faced god works alongside R'hllor and is only concerned about the death aspect of R'hllor's power. Likewise, it would be safe to assume the MFG would work alongside all gods, being responsible for the deaths owed to each.
