  1. You better read again. She took control of the greatest infantry that is known in that world and liberated them from the slave masters. She defeated the undying ones in the Palace of Dust. Dany is a proven winner and the best player of the game of thrones.
  2. Dany has my vote for Best Player.
  3. The three Kingsguard remained loyal to King Aerys II. They really only had two choices on that day: 1) Bend the knee to Robert or 2) Die fighting. They chose to die fighting because the king that they swore to protect died. There was no reason for them to continue living. And Ned did his best to convince them to bend their knees and accept Robert as their king. They refused. A fight to the death could not be avoided. They were not there to protect Lyanna and her bastard. They were trapped in Dorne. The rebels had already taken the ports. There was no way they can get to King Viserys III.
  4. Old Nan says the NK was a Stark. It would make sense because only the prideful Starks who governed the north could erase this fact from history to hide the shame of their house. The Starks are the "ice" in this story.
  5. The list of dumb people is short and Sansa Stark tops that short list of dumb people.
  6. Daenerys took an adverse situation, getting forced to marry into the Dothraki, and won over their leader, Khal Drogo. She not only survived but thrived. She took the initiative and hatched dragons and brought them back into the world. She won over the loyalties of Jorah Mormont. She won over her Bloodriders. She won the loyalty and respect of both Barristan and Belwas. She handily outsmarted the slave masters of Astapor and won over the unsullied. Aegon 5 tried to hatch dragon eggs, sacrificed many lives to do it, and failed. Daenerys succeeded. She is not only a great player but she's a winner.

  7. The white walkers would have no use for a "fire" baby. Fire is incompatible with ice. There is a much, much greater chance that Craster is a Stark.
  8. Think of them as a code of ethics. Something they practice to maintain ethics within those with the abilities. Bran is slowly sinking into the depths of evil because of what he has been doing. There are very good reasons for having those codes of ethics. They serve to keep the wargs from regressing to something vile and primitive.
  9. Samwell might get angry because he cares about Gilly and by extension, Gilly's baby. I'm sure Samwell will grow to like Mance's baby in time. The more important question is, what will Mance Rayder do when he finds out that Jon tricked him and his baby is actually in Oldtown.
  10. I would expect many people were suspicious of Robert's and Ned's explanations. But it's not advisable to express your doubts in public. Robert won and that is that. I doubt the small people actually even cared about what happened. The lords decide to go to war and they have to march. Ned helped perpetuate this lie and we will find out later that he did so to protect his family's honor. So why would a man like Selmy still hold Rhaegar in high regard if he was guilty of rape and kidnapping? Barristan probably had his doubts but he can only repeat that which is publicly known.
  11. Those were primitive times and Greywind's pelt would be luxurious accessory for someone with lots of gold like Lady Frey. I am curious what the Freys and the Boltons did with Greywind's fur. I don't think the Freys would have much use for it in the Riverlands but Roose is just the kind to take it back with him to the Dreadfort. The south is less primitive than the north. Grey is not exactly an attractive color though. A Ghost pelt would be more suitable for wear.
  12. Knowing the whole story won't make the members of the NW sympathetic towards Jon. More like the opposite. Jon is wrong no matter how you look at what he did. Many of those men left behind families they cared about as much as Jon cared about Arya. None of them ran off and abandoned their vows to help their families during the war of the five kings. They are better men and boys than Jon. Giving Mance Rayder a get-out-of-execution-pass is not a minor matter. It's not just a betrayal of the Night's Watch, the realm, and justice. It is a very selfish, self-serving act. That one act of gross injustice alone, the differential treatment of two men guilty of insubordination, made Jon unworthy of leading the watch. Mance Rayder, a sworn brother of the watch, was guilty of insubordination. Rather than comply and face punishment, he ran off. He joined the wildlings and advanced himself in their ranks until he became their king. He is responsible for the deaths of many thousands of Night's Watch men as well as many citizens of the north. And Jon let him walk! Janos Slynt was only guilty of insubordination. And Jon killed him for it. If that is not a gross violation of justice then nothing is. Does anyone think G. Martin just happened to write the plot so that Mance and Janos were both guilty of insubordination? Martin carefully crafts his story and takes an ungodly amount of time to work out the details. He meant for that parallel to exist and he meant for us to question Jon's motives and actions. It was unjust to kill Janos and then let Mance get off. The act of rescuing Arya is a gross betrayal of the NW. That is a declaration of war. Taking away the wife of a nobleman is hostile behavior and equivalent to starting a war with that nobleman. Many people will die because of that very selfish act by Jon. If the gods are good, Bowen Marsh and his partners will take Jon's body and burn it immediately.
  13. Jon's baby swap might actually turn out to be a bad idea. Craster is probably a distant Stark relative. His son at the Wall has the purest of all Stark blood. If some of the White Walkers are Craster's boys then they too have Stark blood. The Night's King was a Stark and he could have passed the Stark blood down to his offsprings with the Night's Queen.
  14. Robb's mistakes, in order of its contribution to his and the North's demise: Betraying his strongest ally. Robb made a pact with House Frey and he broke that pact. It is easy to see why the Freys would be furious. They lost kinsmen while fighting for Robb's side and he betrays them. Letting himself be crowned king in the north. Which meant the north would become independent if he should win the war. Any peace treaty would force the other side to concede the north and allow it to become independent. Trusting Theon Greyjoy to negotiate with his family. Not watching Roose Bolton carefully. Killing Rickard Karstark. Would the Starks lose the war regardless? Not necessarily. Because there was more than two sides to the war. The best outcome for Robb was the break up of the seven kingdoms. The warring sides would have to come to the table and negotiate. Robb could not hold the entire continent and rule over the seven kingdoms. The land would have broken up into at least two new kingdoms. Three to four might be more accurate. South, East, North, and Iron Islands.
