  1. Jojen Reed's fate? (ADWD Spoilers)

    There is no concrete evidence to say Jojen is in the paste; however, I think it's odd how so many people dismiss the theory as not possible. There are enough clues pointing to Jojen dying off screen to make it something worth considering: We know he's going to die soon. The day Bran eats paste is the only day Jojen doesn't say "this is not the day I die." Meera knows Jojen's death is going to happen soon, and wants to take him home, because she knows he'll be safe at home. I think he must have seen that he's going to die North of the Wall, which is why he wants to go home, but won't even try it. "The moon was thin and sharp as a knife." Jojen wouldn't eat acorn paste earlier on, saying it would only make him sicker, even though he was literally starving his body to death. "the gift is in the blood" the paste looks like it has blood in it Bran "could taste the blood" after viewing the Northman's execution/sacrifice Meera ran off when the Children came to get Bran Jojen went to the front of the cave to sit a stare out mournfully - last we saw him. Jojen has served his purpose, and there is nothing further he can offer to the story arc. Jojen believes he made a mistake and should never have come. Jojen and Meera were looking for a way out of the cave when they explored the river. Cannibalism is a reoccurring theme in the book Bran wakes and Jojen and Meera are nowhere to be found. Theon hears crying through the weirwood after the last Bran Chapter. A weirwood dripped a wet warm salty tear on Bran and company as they are heading North We have no reason to trust that Bloodraven is doing anything for the good of Jojen, Meera, or even Bran. When Varamyr dies his soul passes children riding on an elk, right before coming on the Wights with the blue eyes that look at him. (they could be the reeds, or they could be children of the forest controlling the Wights) One of the Children carries around a black knife - perfect for Jojen Stabbing. This wouldn't be the first time GRRM would have killed a character off screen, and there isn't anything to say we won't see what happened in the next book. Hodor is armed and ready to smack down some children and allow Bran and Meera to get out, we have NO reason to believe that either of them are dying anytime soon. The Children may be against the Others, or for them, but one thing we know is that they are very alien, and we should assume they look at sacrifice and cannibalism the same way as humans.
  2. Jojen Reed's fate? (ADWD Spoilers)

    Unless something has changed recently the Reeds were never cast for Season 2. So there is a good chance they have been written out. Some believe that Osha will be the one to take Bran North of the Wall, although, if that happens I don't know what they plan on doing with Rickon. They might have Maester Luwin survive, and take Rickon away.
  3. Jojen Reed's fate? (ADWD Spoilers)

    I don't know which thread is better to put this in, so it's in two: I found another clue that might point to Jojen Paste: On the Kindle for ipod version: Page 542 of 1024, Theon goes to the Godswood. This isn't the scene where he hears his name, but he does hear something from the Hearttree. Quote "Please," he murmured through his broken teeth, "I never meant..." The words caught in his throat. "Save me," he finally managed. "Give me..." What? Strength? Courage? Mercy? Snow fell around him, pale and silent, keeping its own counsel. The only sound was a faint soft sobbing. Jeyne, he thought. It is her, sobbing in her bridal bed. Who else could it be? Gods do not weep. Or do they? The sound was too painful to endure. Theon grabbed hold of a branch and pulled himself back to his feet, knocked the snow off his legs, and limped back toward the lights. There are ghosts in Winterfell, he thought, and I am one of them. In hindsight we can see that this is Bran crying. But why would he be crying? Not because of Theon surely, maybe because he just found out Jojen is dead.
  4. Jojen Reed's fate? (ADWD Spoilers)

    Jojen was definitely in the paste. I remember reading that chapter, and thinking "Ok, Bran, you're eating blood my boy." But I didn't make the connection to Jojen. I've been saying for years that Jojen won't live much longer, and Coldhands will do him in, but I thought we'd see it on screen. I actually like this much better, and assume it will be made much clearer in the next book. I love this storyline, and am honestly shocked that so many people trust Bloodraven, and the Children of the Forest so much. They may not be evil, but they're certainly very alien, and I've assumed since we first met Coldhands that he was on the side of the Others. I don't trust any of them. That last line where Bran says "He could taste the blood." has even more meaning when you think about him tasting the sap blood, rather then the blood soaking into the ground.
  5. The Mad Genius Of Petyr Baelish

    does anyone have a CliffsNotes version of this?
  6. The Mad Genius Of Petyr Baelish

    Did anyone read that? I've only seen one thread that was worse then that. Years ago someone wrote a huge block of text that had no paragraph breaks, and no capitalization. I think it was about the the Other's plan or something, I think there was only one person that read it. I might have to find it again.
  7. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    So the hound is Rory Mccann. Don't know much about him, but he looks like he fits the part.
  8. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    I'd rather Sandor NOT be Ray Stevenson. I don't want all the comparisons to be with Rome. I think the series needs to stand on its own, and I think bringing in actors from Rome would hinder the series more then help it. I don't want Sandor to make people think of Titus. He should be unique. Think how much people are saying they won't be able to see Bean as Ned because of a part he played in Lord of the Rings. He was on screen for maybe 1 hour in that movie. Contrast that to the screen time Stevenson has had as Titus Pullo.
  9. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    I guess I was thinking of when Jeyne said his father thought it was a pig when they delivered the boy. or something to that effect. I assumed the "they" was Sandor and company, but you're probably right. More likely, it was Ned and his men, or Robert's men. I doubt Robert would have taken the time, he would have left it to someone else. for some reason I was thinking Sandor did that dirty task too. He should have; if not that proves he's even that much more of a coward.
  10. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Here are the Giant characters: am I missing any? What order should they go in? Gregor - 7'5" definitely the biggest - could be Conan Stevens, or a few other real life Giants like Paul Wight - none need to be great actors Sandor - 6'8" - I think, but I don't know where I got that. - Needs good acting Chops, I'm guessing Willig who's up and coming, and probably not to expensive. Drogo - supposed to be the largest man among thousands of Dothraki. - should have a more exotic look, Mongolian, or Asian maybe. Robert - 6'6" - probably undersized (cast wise). - already cast. Hodor - "half Giant," although that might be from more then his height. :) - doesn't need to be a great actor. Tormund Giantsbane Shagga Greatjon Umber - He's the older one? Smalljon Umber - He's the younger one but bigger then his father correct? And of course lots of Giants ridding Mammoths, but I'm guessing they'll be CGI.
  11. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    just to add one thing to this. I hope Conan Stevens isn't just hoping for Benioff and Weiss to give him a call. I hope he's actively pursuing it, and hope he's reading the books because from what I can tell from his website - he doesn't understand Gregor all that well.
  12. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Yeah, there is something truly endearing about a man that can cut a little boy nearly in two and laugh about it as he hands his bloody corpse over to the boy's father.
  13. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    The Hound is going to be Matthew Willig from a recent interview: As for what lies ahead for Matthew, he is eager to find out where his acting journey will lead him next. “I don’t have anything written in stone. There is an HBO pilot coming up that I am very interested in. But there is nothing right now on my table that I am getting ready for next week,†he said. “Things have been coming across that hopefully in the next year or so will put me out there and make me a little more visible.â€
  14. Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    I thought you were full of it. until I looked it up.
  15. Dragon sighting at Winterfell?!?

    Ok found it: I think this is your vague reference about the steam being created by dragons deep in winterfells crypts: from the Ned's Bones Thread: Dragon 1 - "Hey Gene, whatcha got there? Another Rat?" Dragon 2 - "Yep, thought I'd let this one wiggle around a bit before i eat it. Hey Frank, aren't you getting sick of Rats and Grave Worms? I almost don't want to eat it." Dragon 1 - Yes I am. Maybe we should try going up and see if there is anything else we could eat." ..... "Hodor, Hodor, Hodor..." Dragon 1 - "what the hell was that!!??? ........maybe we should go investigate" Dragon 2 - "screw that, my Rat's gonna get cold, and it's dark down here, I say we just leave it alone, it can't be good." Dragon 1 - "maybe you're right, let's stay down here a little longer, what's another 100 years? .......hey Gene, you're rat's getting away." In all seriousness, I don't think you guys are thinking about the location in the series. It was at the end of the book. So it basically gave people something to chew over for a few years until the next book came out. We would have heard about it in the following book if it was anything more then a red herring.
