  1. Both died from blood poisoning. Gregor from Oberyn's poison. Drogo from infection. It is not yet clear if Drogo just got infected on his own or Mirri helped it along with her treatment. Oberyn, though no one says it, is as close to a sorcerer as you can get. How much different was he actually from Mirri? Gregor has kept many of his functions. His physical skills are still there and he was never smart to start with. Drogo lost his brain functions altogether. Similar case but I don't think identical. Drogo would still need constant care. Feeding. He had no feelings left. Gregor has more functions than Drogo.
  2. Rhaegar gave in to the feelings in his loins instead of deciding for the benefit of the kingdom. I don't believe he would have made a good king. He was remembered fondly but there was no excuse to humiliate his wife at Harrenhal like that. A grown man with wife and children should not chase after another man's betrothed to satisfy his heart. He may handle some things better than Robert but other matters not so much. Robert had more women but Rhaegar had one outside of marriage. Neither men are all that admirable if you think about it. Rhaegar's feelings for Lyanna got a lot of people killed for no better reason than they wanted to be together.
  3. Good points from both of you. I will add a few more requirement to this list. Arya Stark will reside at The Twins and will marry the man that Lord Walder chooses for her. She will function in the same capacity as Theon Greyjoy did for the Starks. Hostage. (cough, cough, I meant ward) Rickon Stark will marry little Cersei Frey. The big shadow over any agreement is Robb himself. He's a proven liar and anything he says cannot be relied upon. I would ask for everything in advance.
  4. I feel like that the termination of Jon Snow by Bowen Marsh was appropriate. The Lord Commander served for life so the only way to remove a crazy leader like Jon from power is to kill him. That is their way of firing an unfit, incompetent, treasonous commander. It's been said before but I will repeat it here. Ramsay Bolton gave Jon the Pink Letter. Bowen Marsh gave Jon the Pink Slip. Jon was already a known deserter. He started making foolish decisions near the end. The Hardhome mission was dumb and only wastes resources. The execution of Janos Slynt became unjust when Jon spared Mance Rayder, a man who has committed more crimes against the Watch and against the kingdom than Slynt has done. Mormont showed mercy to Jon for desertion. Jon could have shown mercy to Janos Slynt's initial insubordination. Sending Mance and the spearwives to rescue his sister, or what he thought was his sister, is an attack on a noble house of the realm. Jon's agents murdered Bolton servants while enjoying Bolton hospitality and shelter. This is little different from what the crows did to Craster and his family. Jon's announced plans to attack the Boltons is the last straw for any honest man of the Watch. It violated the oaths of the watch and Jon knew it. Instead of helping unite the north, Jon's actions made unity less likely to happen. To sum up, I support Bowen Marsh and his decision to end Jon's appointment.
  5. Westeros History. They do episodes for show watchers. They do shows for book readers. I watch the spoiler full episodes for the book readers. Aziz keeps his discussions grounded and he doesn't get into outrageous flights of the imagination.
  6. IIRC, Walder already sent his hunters to look for the wolf pack. I would use baited traps to thin out the pack.
  7. Dear Lothar, Forget the terms. I want to make a deal to rid ourselves of the Starks. I propose we support Roose for the time being. New information came to me. Bran and Rickon are still alive. I will send my trackers to find them and kill them for you. In turn, I want friend status between my house and yours. All good marked with the sigil of houses Dustin and Ryswell gets to cross your bridge without toll. Lady Barbrey Dustin
  8. Theon needs no redemption. He was a Stark hostage and he was right to take Winterfell from them. He could really perform a valuable service to the night watch by putting an arrow through Ghost's heart to keep Jon from having any chance of coming back.

  11. Bran vs. Jaime is really something that I look forward to in the novels. The show is too sensitive to the opinions of the more vocal fans to do this and will likely just sweep what Jaime did to Bran under the table because Jaime is a fan favorite on the show. George will address this issue in the books. One way or another, Bran and the Starks will find out who pushed him out of that tower window. Bran, Arya, and Jon will not forgive this. I differ from most fans in believing that the main conflict in the story is not about man vs. the others. It's man vs. man. My opinion is also that the Starks are no better than any other clan. Most of the Starks are not the honorable guy that Eddard was. I believe the most important battles in the story will be personal for each character and it is the struggle within to forgive or to seek "justice". In this regard, I think characters like Bran Stark, Arya Stark, Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, Doran Martell, Stoneheart, Stannis, and the families in the north who lost a loved one at the red wedding will be the main hindrance in uniting everybody. The Boltons, Euron, and Littlefinger are the agitators who rock the boat to complicate matters, but the big conflict will play out within each character. It's not about the big battles. It's about the hard decisions that people make. Samwell, Daenerys, Tyrion, and other reasonable people similar to Ellaria Sand are the solution to the problem. The slave masters in Essos are Dany's sparring partners. Young Daenerys will hone and develop her skills at ruling in the most inhospitable situation possible: entrenched slaving culture, guerilla warfare, and hidden terrorists. I can see her having to reconquer the kingdoms to rebuild the country back up. I don't believe Jon is the answer to this problem because he is too involved in the situation and he's too invested in the Starks to be objective and rational. Samwell, Daenerys, Marwyn, and Tyrion will contribute towards the rebuilding of the country and in reuniting the kingdoms into one kingdom. Will the north forgive the Freys? Can the Starks forgive Theon? Can Dany forgive the families who rebelled against her father? Can Jon forgive Bowen? Can Jaime forgive Tyrion for killing Tywin? Can Bran forgive Jaime? Will Arya choose to continue to work on her hit list? Arya is definitely a major part of the problem. Stoneheart makes the situation worse and she is an impediment to future unification.
  12. That's mine own verdict as well. He is a bastard any way you look at it.
  13. The only true heir to House Targaryen and the iron throne is Daenerys, The dragons and her appearance prove who she is. The prophecy made it clear who she is. The "child of three" proves she is Daenerys of House Targaryen. Three is one of the symbols of House Targaryen. Aegon and his sisters. The three-headed dragon on their banner. Child of three just means she is a Targaryen.
  14. The short answer: Gardener couldn't do it. The Ironborn under Harren the Black were stronger than the Gardeners. Harren was the strongest of the tiny kings that ruled a territory in those days. No one could stand up to the Ironborn of that period until the dragons came along and the Targaryens finally put the Ironborn in their rightful place at the bottom.
