  1. I have to admit the show has got me thinking is there any cases in "ANY" of GRRM books based in Westeros that lords have had there mariage annuled/set aside and allowed to remarry? I know a king can easily do this but what about every other form of nobility?
  2. Make no mistake LF is on Jons side "for now" LF needs Jon/humanity to beat the WW so that his plans can actually come to fruition, LF is a mastermind with a very high IQ he has several weaknesses one being that he cant see the future in this case Danny with dragons and the WW/NK. LF now has to roll with the punches and go compleyly off script something IMO he isnt good at, yes Bran made a mistake but LF is about to make several.
  3. Im so confused why Jamie assumed Casterly Rock would be taken WHY? Its quite litterally the strongest castle in Westeros Visenya Targaryan believed even with dragons it would be hard to take. Jamie doesnt know about the secret entrance to CR or he would have ordered it sealed before Dannys fleet even reached Westeros yet the Dothraki take it with ease, even with 300 men guarding CR the invading army would fail period. Highgarden has no weaknesses and three outter walls and is top 6 strongest castles and was taken almost with no challenge or so it seems. Again even with 30000 men and 500 men protecting HG jamie loses.
  4. It doesnt matter as long as they are married before the baby comes out then the child will still be true born, the girl may be seen as a whore by some??
  5. I think some of you missed the point of this powerful scene yes it was creepy as hell but it was used to show how emotionally detached Bran has become even towards his own sister he hasnt seen in person at least in years.
  6. The Lannisters still have Devann Lannister who is said to be a lot smarter then his father and just so happens to be in charge of the Lannister army or at least part of it atm. IMO Devan will take CR as his seat which will pit him against Cersie and he will have the support of the Westerlands nobility because Cersie is obviously bat shit crazy and a woman.
  7. is a perfect Targ marriage, very creepy but hey thats what the Targs are into. C) Stannis and Selyse wasnt a horrible marriage per say since the Florents have one of the greatest claims on Highgarden and this marriage was used to scare house Tyrell into submission. D) Mellario was a high noble nothing wrong with this match either.
  8. I dont think the Queen of Thorns advice to Dany was to help her in any way shape or form, I believe she is so grief struck she just wants to watch the world burn. Seeing Cersie burn first would be preferable tho lol.
  9. The only true solution is to exterminate house Greyjoy for their defiance and install house Harlaw as the new Great house, with the reader as lord I would grant him lands in the North probably a lot of the gift so that the Ironborn can logically survive without reaving in the first place and if house Umber had something to say I would tell house Stark handle it or I will. I would force marriages upon houses so family ties were built, I would destroy 2/3 of the Iron fleet untill there loyalty is assured. Each house gives up a "ward" for even more security. I would PROMISE this would be the last chance for the Ironborn the next time would be genocide unfortunately, I would have this in writting and make each lord sign so that they ALL know the consequences of another rebellion. I wouldnt actually go threw with the genocide but I would have my poker face on for sure lol.
  10. Why does everyone think the Tyrells bannerman are unloyal? Lord Leyton Hightower is the grandfather of all 4 of Maces children and the Redwyns are closely related as well which means the Tyrells will have the 2nd and 3rd most powerful Reach houses on there side which will cause the other bannerman to stay loyal.
  11. I loved that the Tyrells and Martells were shut up so quickly when Tyrion mentioned attacking Casterly Rock lol. Euron Greyjoy is an awesome villian, last season he was really plain and boring but this season they have made him more eccentric and his battle axe was kick ass. I enjoyed Jon Snow quickly shutting Sansa up with power and the Greyworm scene was nice for obvious reasons ;).
  12. This.......
  13. Exactly we know that there were a few thousand Reach knights with Rhegar at the trident it always bothered me Rhegar wouldnt request Mace Tyrell send him more troops, the Reach apparently can field over 80000 men but 20000 at SE and a few thousand with the Royalist army where are the rest ?? It is treason to not answer your lord/kings call with a quarter of your army especially during a civil war for the crown.
  14. Stannis controls the royal fleet which basically leaves the Lannisters without any sort of navy besides maybe 10 or 15 warships max in Lannisport untill the Tyrells join them later on in the story. Wouldnt it make sense to reach out to Balon and the Ironborn for an alliance? Its basically a win win for Stannis and Balon since Balon wants the IB independance and he wants to be able to reave like the old days, Stannis can offer Balon the independance he wants and also a big juicy steak to reave in the form of Lannisport and the best part for the IB is Lannisport is easy pickins at the moment. The only thing Stannis loses in this situation is the Iron Islands and so what???? They dont produce enough goods that the taxs they pay would make Stannis wealthy and they provide nothing else accept possible ships for war but as we know just because the Iron Born are part of the 7k doesnt mean they will come when you call. With Lannisport taken this would force Tywin to retreat west and deal with the Iron Born while Stannis focuses on the Crownlands and lets Robb and his men deal with the Lannisters even more in the Riverlands since when Tywin retreats West this would be a perfect opportunity to advance West like Robb originally wanted to do which would leave Tywin in a very bad spot and one the Tyrells would refuse to join the Lannisters in. Stannis offers Mace Tyrell two council positions for the Reach and Bobs your uncle Iron Throne secured...... So a win win for Stannis and Balon and no offer of an alliance to speak of sounds a bit of a plot hole.
  15. You obviously do not understand the differences between what Robb offers and what Stannis offers so ill explain..... Robb offers Balon nothing because after the war of the 5 kings somebody has to be king it doesnt matter who it is and once the armys of Westeros has replenished themselves they will be demanding the Iron Born submit to the Iron Throne or else which will end with the Iron Born being defeated AGAIN. Stannis is KING so if he wins the throne and the war he isnt going to demand the Iron Born bend the knee because he made a deal with Balon for there indepenance and thus the Iron Born stay independent forever as you can see this is a huge difference. I do how ever agree that its not in Stannis character to make a deal with Balon because Stannis wants to be the one king but my question was would it have made a huge difference if Stannis did offer Balon an alliance......you need to read to acheive im not debating whether or not its within Stannis character to do so everyone and there mother knows it is not.......
  16. Again Robb isnt king of Westeros............... And so what Stannis attacked the Iron Born in the past they started it, Stannis was doing his duty there was no hatred behind it.
  17. Stannis is king of Westeros not the North like Robb..... Robb cant offer Balon peace after the Iron Born independance Stannis can since like I said it would be Stannis kingdom so no attacking the Iron born when everythinf settles down. Your statement made no sense what so ever....
  18. The best man for the job should have been Admiral which in this case is by far Stannis himself, giving Imry command was to keep the Florents happy and only to keep them happy and it cost Stannis big time.
  19. More like look what 16 years of Robert and Jon Arryn brought to the realm, yes Jon Arryn wasnt the king but he was like a father to Robert and should have been more stern about Roberts duty to the realm letting your so called son run around whoring and drinking while the realm slowly falls apart seems like Jon was more of a yes ser type then anything.....
  20. Varys wanted the mad king on the throne untill who ever he was planning on replacing him with was ready to do so, what I mean by this is the mad king is easily removed from power if a good and "sane" Targaryan or in this case Blackfyre claiment to the throne is introduced and married to lets say a powerful house Varys knows is watering at the mouth to tie blood ties to house Targaryan which IMO is the Tyrells will cause the loyalists to switch almost instantly.
  21. I mean he has a few hundred men tops and was able to go villiage to villiage destroying everything in his path with no retaliation at all but how?? When Ned sent Dondarion after the Mountain he seemed to have no problems tracking him wouldnt the Riverlords be able to track him much quicker?? Also the Riverlords are not stupid they know who is attacking them and they dont set a trap? The Mountain is rash and doesnt think things thru especially when hes angry a man like this is easily pushed into a trap.
  22. I could be wrong but its never mentioned if Mel had ever had the oppurtunity to have king Roberts ear even for a short amount of time, I believe if she did he would have become smittin with her in a way due to her confidence and hell she could easily drink Robert under the table due to her abilities which make her immune to poison lol. If she did manage to out drink Robert im sure he would keep her around either for that or her beauty and over time if Robert sees the magical things shes capable of he might allow her to spread the word of Rhollar around Westeros.
  23. Edmure allowing his bannerman to return home to retake there castles was a huge mistake in my eyes one that weakend his nephew Robb by a lot.
  24. 1) Riverrunn because its a very strong castle which has its own river which I would fish all summer long. 2) Highgarden because it sounds beautiful 3) Eyrie/Gates of the moon because having 2 impregnable castles is just awesome.
  25. You would think once the Riverlands was attacked the first time the Riverlords would ALL call there banners especially since Vance and Piper strongly theorized that the Mountain was behind the attacks, once all the Banners were called a strong Garrison would be placed on the boarder of the Westerlands making the Mountains retreat almost immpossible and prevent Tywins main force from crossing into the RL un challenged. Even a light garrison at any castle/stronghold should at least give Tywin a runny nose but we here of no defense pretty much at all. Good thing Edmures 15 year old nephew was there to bail him out lol or Tywin would have what I call a FLAWLESS victorys.......
