  1. Weirwood trees in Storm's End

    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
  2. Rhaella's flight to Dragonstone

    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.
  3. Didn't Jon have the letter on him when he was stabbed? If so, she will search his body and discover it.
  4. Towers by the sea

    @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.
  5. Towers by the sea

    Given how much she miss interrupts her visions, it's possible she's seeing the God's Eye as a sea.
  6. The battle for the dawn

    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.
  7. A tought on the TWOW prologue

    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.
  8. @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.
  9. The Others in Yi Ti

    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.
  10. POVs that you would've loved

    Robb, Tormund, Margaery, Missandei, Gendry
  11. The catspaw was hired by . . . Old Nan!

    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.
  12. What do you think the last words of the series will be?

    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.
  13. What is your favourite king?

    Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall.
  14. Why do you like this character: Jaime

    I agree that he could have gone back and tried to help Kevan help Cersei out of this mess, but I don't see any way that he could have been a bigger part of his kids lives. He will never get to be their father. Cersei had also started to reject him when he returned to King's Landing missing his hand. She didn't see him as a protector for her and their children anymore. She only wanted him back when she was at her most desperate. Add that to him being heartbroken when Tyrion told him about Cersei screwing around with other people while he was being held captive and trying desperately to get back to her, he may feel that she is just trying to use him to get her out of this situation and will abandon him once she is free.
  15. Why do you like this character: Jaime

    Jaime wants to run away with Cersei and their kids and be their father. Cersei won't allow that because she's too wrapped up in keeping her power as Queen Regent. He can't be part of kids lives other than as their uncle or he reveals to the entire realm that they are bastards of an incestuous relationship, that would make Stannis the rightful king. If he does reveal that he is their true father then he loses Cersei because she will never forgive him for her fall from power and would most likely take her kids across the Narrow Sea in exile and not let him be a part of their lives in any way. His only choice is to leave.
