  1. I know this thread is about marrying Myrcella to Willas, but I just want address the OP saying Robert was the weakest of the commanders, bringing no alliances. Robert was a strong military leader. He had alliances with the Vale and the North through being fostered in the Vale by Jon Arryn with Ned. He may not have brought as many men as those regions, but he definitely had their support.
  2. Isn't there a quote in Clash of Kings, I think (maybe Storm of Swords), when Jon is having a wolf dream and comments about being able to feel his brothers and sister and knowing one is dead (If it's in Clash [or early on in Storm] then Grey Wind would still be alive). I think this would be confirmation that the direwolves, or at least Ghost, is (are) able to know where each other are.
  3. Jaime and Tyrion
  4. It was Melisandre that said it. "Jon." Melisandre was so close he could feel the warmth of her breathe. "R'hollor is the only true god. A vow sworn to a tree has no more power than one sworn to your shoes. Open your heart and let the light of the Lord come in. Burn these weirwoods, and accept Winterfell as a gift of the Lord of Light." - ASOS Jon XI
  5. Could also be that they left at separate times. Viserys could have left at night as he said and Rhaella could have left during the morning as Jaime said. I don't remember if Jaime mentions seeing Viserys with Rhaella.
  6. Didn't Jon have the letter on him when he was stabbed? If so, she will search his body and discover it.
  7. @rotting sea cow My only argument against what you're saying is that we have already seen the Iron Born as described as the "sea rising over the walls of Winterfell" in Jojen's greendream about the fall of Winterfell. Either Martin is just repurposing this symbolism to foreshadow what Euron is about to do in Oldtown or it is about something else.
  8. Given how much she miss interrupts her visions, it's possible she's seeing the God's Eye as a sea.
  9. Bran's powers may be strong enough by that point, that even if Dany does not offer support, he could warg a dragon from a great distance and burn a lot of the wight army, reducing their numbers.
  10. It seems to me, that if there is any pattern with the prologues, that TWOW prologue wouldn't be from a maester's POV. We have had 2 members of the Night's Watch and then a Wildling north of the Wall. We have also had a maester and a maester in-training south of the Wall. It makes sense that TWOW prologue would be from the POV of someone against the maester order.
  11. @The Sword of the Evening Mance tells Jon that he visited Winterfell as a man of the Night's Watch when Robb and Jon were kids and watched them playing in the snow. He couldn't have been gathering the wildlings for 20 years. Based on this the timeline would fit with Ned's marriage.
  12. The land could have been connected by ice sheets forming in the northern seas and the Others could have crossed into Essos that way. Or a land bridge could have been exposed if sea level dropped enough. If it gets cold enough during winter, the land bridge could be exposed again or the massive ice sheets reform and the Others could cross into Essos.
  13. Robb, Tormund, Margaery, Missandei, Gendry
  14. Tyrion and Jaime both come to the conclusion, separately, that it was Joffery who hired the catspaw that attempted to kill Bran. When Joffery cut the book Tyrion gave him at his wedding he says "I am no stranger to Valyrian steel." This was what allows Tyrion to deduce that it was Joffery and allowed him to remove Jaime and Cersei as suspects. While there is no direct evidence pointing to Joffery and Joffery's motive to have Bran killed is not made clear, it is likely that Tyrion and Jaime came to the correct conclusion.
  15. And when he woke up, Bran realized that it had all been a dream, and King Robert would be arriving at Winterfell on the morrow.
