Another bit of holiday weekend navel-gazing.

 

What is the writing on the wall that you refuse to see? It doesn't have to be confirmed; just heavily implied is good enough.

 

Mine: I'm in complete denial that Balon Swann had any intention of killing Trystane Martell.

Is it still denial if you're aware you're denying it?

 

Bran's warging of Hodor being morally repugnant might be mine. In my head it's a bit of a lark.

That Littlefinger would want Sansa to marry someone as insignificant as Harry. That Lancel might well turn against his beloved Queen.

Personally, and I know this will ruffle many feathers, I just hate San-San.

I'm fully aware of the abundant evidence for it (whatever "it" is, or will turn out to be), I just don't like it. I think both of their stories are better served going separate ways.

Certainly. I'm aware that it doesn't look good for my home slice Balon, and yet, I refuse to believe it.

Ok. Sorry for philosophizing.

 

Like I said, Bran's mind-fucking of Hodor is akin to throwing a stink-bomb in my mind. Teenage hi-jinx, lulz.

It only makes the denial that much worse.

No dude the Hodor thing is pretty bad. Say it with me, it's bad to forcibly take over someones mind. When that someone is simple and can't defend themselves, it's worse.

I'm basically at this point as well. I half-think that Roose has been the one and only Bolton lord since their founding :)

 


Mine: I'm in complete denial that Balon Swann had any intention of killing Trystane Martell.

 

I agree with this too. I just want there to be one wholly GOOD person on the KG dammit!

Im in this camp too. Im also in denial that Jon was ever a douchebag about Gilly's baby business.

I was gonna say Arthur Dayne is alive but it's not denial if it's true so.....


That if Howland+Ashara isn't true, that it was Ned who "dishonored" Ashara at Harrenhal.

For the life of me I can't actually think of anything, all my beliefs are right and I refuse to believe otherwise. You all just wait till Ned Stark shows up to save Jon then you will all see.

Please please please let the Bolton Flaying Tradition be some on-the-nose parody/reverse engineering of Stark skinchanging and be connected to the Faceless Man "face swapping" trick so that Roose Bolton is thousands of years old and just periodically goes into seclusion to change his face and assume the identity of his "heir"

I am in denial that the whole Quentyn arc was boring and predictable and am desperately trying to see it from an angle where it wasn't.

 

I am in denial that there is probably no chance that the Northeners and Stannis can achieve some conclusion where one of the parties is not screwed over.

 

I strongly want to believe that the Hooded Man was someone, as opposed to noone/Theon Durden, while the chances are probably about 50 50.
