Seriously. No one read patches' post if you want to avoid several major spoilers.

There are two main reasons Mormont let Crastor get away with being such a "bastard" for so long. The first is that he is not part of the realm (since he is beyond the wall) and thus not subject to the same laws. The second and most important reason is that, while he is a complete prick and a terrible person, his house is the only safe place for the Night's Watch north of the wall. They need his protection for their ranger patrols. These are things that the Commander realizes that the others don't.

Yes, Jon Arryn's widow. The one we met in season 1 with her preteen son still breastfeeding. Littlefinger has a history with the Tully sisters.
