  1. Well the dragon with a coat of gold is gone anyway..
  2. For me it’s the music. Really great sountrack especially the songs of fire and blood. My favorite is “Khaleesi”, though “The Spoils of War 1” is catching up fast mostly because of the way the Dothraki and Lannister themes intertwine with the Targ’s. Aw and I forgot to mention the way they ended the Rains of Castamere with no music during the credits. If I were humming the music while reading the books, that ending would have certainly left me hummingless.
  3. More than for Yorks or Lancasters, for the Targaryens inbreeding is vital in order to keep the DNA as close to the original one as possible since their relationship with the dragons depends on the valyrian descendance. Perhaps that's what some of the "Blood" in "Blood and Fire" stands for. Of course, the downside is madness :).
  4. It could be good or it could be bad: "Madness and greatness are two sides of the same coin. Every time a new Targaryen is born, the gods toss the coin in the air, and the world holds its breath to see how it will land." (Jaehaerys Targaryen) Speaking of which, in Dany's case the coin seams to have landed on the edge and keeps spinning showing greatness and somethingelseness alternatively.
  5. My apologies then. I thought with the heir dead, not his siblings, but his children (either his son Aegon from Elia or his son Aegon from Lyanna) would become heir. Sorry
  6. It runs in the family. It started long ago with the words of her more famous ancestor to another lord: "When the sun sets your line shall end!". As for the legitimate heir, when Rhaegar died, his son Aegon (one of the numerous Aegons) became heir to the throne. Later edit: By the way, Katerine459, great post.
  7. Most likely it is so. I shouldn’t probably mention here that Joanna was called by Aerys to King’s Landing in 272 and Tyrion was born in 273 since it wasn’t in the show, but if you’re right (and I think you are), doesn’t that scene with Tyrion and the dragons, alone in the dark, seem like a pointless waste of film?
  8. True. I hope she has a better plan than our guys though. When they broke the wheel in the Roman Empire they realized too late that wheel was also a chandelier and left everybody in the dark for a thousand years during the Dark Age.
  9. I'm not so sure they care all that much about linage: House Tyrell is gone, the Martells are gone, the Starks are wobbly since there's no male Stark left, but of course heirs could come up for all of the above during the season.
  10. What of Gilly's son? Any predictions?
  11. I hadn't noticed that, Feisal. Nice theory. Not sure any of it is true, but it was nice reading it.
  12. Aaah, Nutter is back? Dany and Jon should be very careful with those wedding planners.
  13. :)) I hope D or D reads your post!
  14. This might make it to #1 in my top. I'm trying to reread it maybe it will eventually grow a meaning but nope, only thing that keeps popping into my mind is Tormund saying "this one's maybe not so smart"... By the way, do you think the NK will have any line next season? Maybe when he leads his army of anorexics to victory a little bart simpsonian "ha!"
  15. I think so too. Always believed Tywin's "You are not my son!" was meant literally: Tyrion is Aerys' son. So valar morghulis will be for him, but later after revealing he's the dragon's third head.
