  1. Weymar Royce. From the first few pages of the novel we were shown the white walkers killing and resurrecting the dead. The wights that attacked Jeor Mormont. There is support in the text for the white walker's ability to raise the dead. Evidence, actually. And it is strong. There is not a shred of evidence in the text to support that Mellissandre can resurrect anybody or anything.
  2. The Targaryens are emphatically one of the oldest houses in that world. And they definitely are the most prestigious family in the world. I know that some people like the Starks. But the Starks are not the equal of the Targaryens. Are the Starks represented in the currency of the kingdoms? No. The currency is a golden dragon. The Westerosi calendar is dated from the time of who's conquest? Not a Stark's but Aegon Targaryen's. The most the Starks ever ruled is the north of Westeros and they were not in complete control of the north until Rogar Bolton submitted. The Targaryens are one of the forty ruling families that owned the freehold of ancient Valyria. There is no comparison in terms of prestige or greatness. Sorry to burst your bubble.
  3. Did you notice anything peculiar about Euron's command ship? The deck is fortified with shields. The prow has what appears to me a retractable ram. It's a formidable warship.
  4. His niece and nephew. Euron's gift = Theon, Yara, Ellaria, S/Snakes, and Queen of Thorns. I don't want the Queen of Thorns to die. I like her a lot. I like Theon too but it looks like he gets away from his uncle.
  5. What I have waited for. Daenerys finally arrives on Westeros. Dragonstone was awesome.
  6. Your Favorite Moment? Daenerys arrives on Dragonstone. I have waited for this very moment for so long.
  7. I like the soundtrack for all seasons so far but I think a composer like Yuki Kajiura could make a positive contribution. Here's an example of her work.
  8. Robb could turn around and take his army home. Just forget the war and garrison Moat Cailin. That would leave Edmure Tully to fend for himself against the Lannisters but it's only Edmure left anyway. There is an advantage to choosing your own battle ground and Moat Cailin is a good place to defend the north from. Let the Freys negotiate their own terms with the Lannisters.
  9. How would Ser Alliser react to Jon's intent to attack Winterfell?
  10. Can anyone recall a passage in the books where Lady Walda tried to help F-Arya in Winterfell? Does Walda know the truth about fake Arya?
  11. He could burn Craster's boy and Shireen to create blood magic that will bring down the walls of Winterfell.
  12. Did he throw gasoline on that fire? He fuels a lot of fires. Maybe they don't turn into anything important or maybe they do.
  13. I don't see many options for Roose. Robb will find out sooner or later that he let Jaime escape in Harrenhall and he won't get the same leniency that Catelyn got. His head would leave his body when Robb learns of his betrayal. Roose sensed the Karstarks and the Freys dissatisfaction with Robb. He knew they would turn on the Starks and just sided with them for his own safety.
  14. I don't expect the author to give us a definite answer. Real life is full of uncertainties. Paternity and parentage could not be determined accurately until DNA testing. That kind of science is out of place in the medieval world of our story. We will clues that support he's a Targaryen as well as clues that support he's the son of Tywin. Martin will leave it up to the reader to make up her mind on Tyrion.
  15. S Good team work. Mel can see the future. Mel has magic. W Lack of food and supplies. Cold winter climate. O Potential alliance with Asha Greyjoy. Use Theon to bargain with the iron born. Use Craster's son for blood magic. T Bolton army. Frey army. The cold. Mance Rayder.
