WAIT, KINslayer OR KINGslayer? Now he is both...


Wasn't the scene written just as a courtesy towards the viewers with less than perfect diction, then?

He never thought he was getting out of there alive. His dialogue pretty much inferred he preferred a suicide escape attempt to staying locked up.


Even more to my point then. Dead Bran = no one tells anyone about Jaime and Cersei, Dead Aerys and alchemists = city does not burn, Dead Alton = now we wait and hope the guard opens the gate alone and investigates the body, then I kill him, then i make a run for it, then maybe I get cut down.

Alton's death didn't guarantee any result and was certainly not the only option Jaime had at the time.

This fellow was a very distant relative, I don't think kinslaying applies to 4th cousins or whatever he was supposed to be but what do I know?



"Alton Lannister"

It doesn't matter whether he's a first cousin or a fifth cousin, he had the name Lannister.
