  1. Could this dialogue be from this scene?
  3. I wonder if the third "holy shit" moment isn't the whole "Bran is Bran the Builder/every Brandon in history" idea. That is a potential major twist that could happen at "the very end" as Bran closes the time loop like he did with Hodor (which was the second holy shit moment).
  4. Turns out Empire magazine didn't have insider information about Jon's true name; they just passed off the Jaehaerys theory as if it were fact:
  5. There was a really popular post on /r/gameofthrones about Jon's real name being Jaehaerys, and a bunch of news sites picked it up afterwards. I'm guessing Empire just took that theory for granted.
  6. One idea I had is that in a Barristan chapter during the battle, he would see Tyrion riding a dragon and have some cryptic thought like "It's true." And then, like you say, he would approach Tyrion after the battle and explicitly draw the connection to Aerys and Joanna.
  7. Mance Rayder shares a number of similarities with both Bael the Bard and Rhaegar Targaryen. Bael died in battle at the Frozen Ford, Rhaegar died in battle at the Ruby Ford, so will Mance also die in battle at a ford? Fighting against the Others/wights, perhaps?
  8. Is there any known instance in the books of someone adopting a regnal name different from their own upon ascending to a throne or similar position? The closest I can think of are the High Septons, who renounce their given names once they are elevated to the position, but they don't take new ones.
  9. That occurred in 263 AC. Cersei and Jaime weren't born until 3 years later, in 266 AC.
  10. "Targaryens were interlopers from another culture and they had some unique factors that didn’t necessarily fit into the mainstream of the other Westerosi lords, such as their traditional incest, you know, which was part of keeping the bloodlines pure so that they could better control the dragons, brother marrying sister, and, you know, nephews and aunts, and so forth." -George R. R. Martin: The World of Ice and Fire (27:17)
  11. Arya was speaking to Gendry, but I wonder if Martin was also thinking of Jon when he wrote this. Same here:
  12. Hmm, perhaps this one, which is mentioned in the OP: Or perhaps this one: Note that each pair of quotes are only separated by one chapter.
  13. Inside Game of Thrones: A Story in Cloth. There's some new behind-the-scenes footage in this video. I guess the most interesting shots are: 1:05 - Jon on Dragonstone 2:54 - Sansa in Winterfell Crypts 2:55 - Chained Ellaria in front of Cersei and Gregor
  14. HBO Nordic promo pic featuring the catspaw's dagger
  15. Are these the only instances in the books and show (so far) where we see another character refer to Daenerys as 'Dany'? I'm asking in light of this script page.
