  1. I can see how this might prevent their relationship from developing. Jon goes off in the far north and Dany stays in the south. But let's be realistic. Not everything will be addressed or resolved by the end of the story. The question of succession may remain hanging. Dany is very young. 16-17 in the books, but still young on the show.
  2. It's a fair question given the Queen was about to ride off into danger. But I don't think it matters if what Dany has in mind to bring democracy. The next ruler will be elected and everyone gets one vote, noble or common.
  3. I must have watched a televised church service. The plot was holy.
  4. The north would lose the most. You would think that Jon and Sansa would have enough common sense and bend the knee to Dany. They're on the front lines of the coming battle whether they like it or not and Stark independence doesn't mean shit because they can't win this battle without Dany's help. Those damn Starks including Jon would be smart to bend their knees to get the help they need.
  5. Speaking of Tyrion, when did that little stump all of a sudden become bothered by death. This is the man who killed his defenseless father and killed Shae in bed. He set the Baratheon fleet on fire with wildfire. It is out of character for him to show concern and get bothered by deaths on the battlefield. I am starting to dislike Tyrion.
  6. Right on. Let me add, I want to see them force Sansa and the North to kneel.
  7. It's actually impossible for Jon to prove his claim. He doesn't look like a Targaryen. And let's not forget that he is a bastard. Rhaegar cannot legally marry Lyanna. His wife, Ellia, was still alive. They have two living children. I.E. Rhaegar + Ellia was consumated and their children serve as the proof. Besides, Jon is not cut out to rule. That decision to put Umber and Karstark lands in the hands of children during a time of war was just plain stupid. Those two castles are the first line of the defense against the Others when the wall comes down. So getting back to the author's point. Jon should bend the knee and swear fealty to Dany. Jon should do this in public, in front of the North and in front of Sansa.
  8. Obviously the fact that Dany is finally in Westeros.
  9. Oh I don't know about that. Some of the op's thoughts are going to happen. The nk can resurrect and he's coming. Can you see why he is the leading candidate to awaken Jon? Some people are hoping it's Mellisandre but we have never seen her do this. We have seen the ww do this.
  10. When the lords rebel against their king the smallfolk rebelling against their lords won't be far behind. It is for the best in the long-term to just suffer your king until his reign ends. Just so you don't set an example for your vassals. Everyone has to believe that the right to rule is divine. Lords declaring themselves kings will only threaten their right to rule in the long term.
  11. I like the hive mind theory to explain how the nk directs his wights. It also makes sense that the nk was a Stark. He must have been a powerful warg before his conversion.
  12. It is possible for a bannerman lord to have more wealth than his lord paramount. He only pays a portion of what he earns and smart guys play with their accounting figures. That's the reason why the Tullys resent the Freys. Walder has more money than Hoster and that must have irked the Tullys.
  13. I wonder why Roose himself didn't hunt Nymeria. She would make a fine trophy to add to his undoubtedly extensive collection of hunting souvenirs. His ancestors must have caught a few direwolves in their time and displayed their pelts at the Dreadfort. Nymeria is abnormal and she gets that from her bond with Arya. Hunting and killing for thrills is not nature's way. He wasn't thinking with his head. He knew that on the back of his head but his emotions were on full throttle and nothing was going to stop him from bringing Arya to the wall.
  14. Robb and his bannermen lost the rebellion. They were unsucessful. Therefore, Robb was not a king. Whatever he intended no longer holds any legal force. To reiterate the topic writer's point, Jon was born a bastard and he remains a bastard.
  15. The Dothraki bow has greater range than any bow used in Westeros. The sheer numbers of the Dothraki who are both cavalry and archers can basically rain arrows down on their enemies. The greater range allows them to hit from farther away before the enemy's bows can be effective. Besides this, it is hard to say who would win the individual combat.
