  1. To be honest, I'm of the opinion that LF will die in the next book since we're reaching the climax of the confrontation between him and Sansa. Plus, since Varys is the more established player who's just now playing his endgame card, he'll be around until Dany gets to Westeros for her showdown with Faegon. Edmure dying in the next book is, to me, rather obvious. He's the Tully to worry about more than the Blackfish with regards to being a rallying cry/flashpoint against the current Lannister regime since he's the rightful Lord Paramount of the Riverlands. His death, along with that of his unborn child, would give Sansa the best claim on the Riverlands since Rickon's getting the North. Davos is perhaps the one character I don't want to see die, but I believe that once Stannis goes so does Davos.
  2. 100% certain they die: Jojen Reed Jon Connington Edmure Tully Tommen Waters Victarion Greyjoy Euron Greyjoy Areo Hotah Aeron Greyjoy Ramsey Bolton Roose Bolton Hosteen and Aenys Frey Doran Martell At least 2 Sand Snakes 50% sure they die: Barristan Selmy Davos Seaworth Petyr Baelish Stannis Baratheon Cersei Lannister Illyrio Mopatis
  3. Greatest Warriors of Westeros

    Rebellion: 1. Arthur Dayne 2. Barristan Selmy 3. Robert Baratheon 4. Rhaegar Targaryen 5. Gerold Hightower 6. Oswell Whent 7. Lewyn Martell 8. Blackfish Tully 9. Jonothor Darry 10. Jaime Lannister All of Aerys' Kingsguard were BA's, with the exception of Jaime, who was still pretty good but probably more on par with people like Bronze Yohn Royce, Jason Mallister, and perhaps Jon Connington. Start of the Series: 1. Barristan Selmy 2. Jaime Lannister 3. Mance Rayder 4. Sandor Clegane 5. Garlan Tyrell 6. Brienne of Tarth 7. Bronze Yohn Royce 8. Loras Tyrell 9. Oberyn Martell 10. Khal Drogo Obviously, due to the amount of time between the rebellion and the start of the books, older fighters have dropped down while younger fighters have moved up. Barristan and Jaime is pretty close to a coin-flip. Mance(which I don't know how he hasn't been mentioned by now) brought together EVERY wildling clan, defeating people like Tormund and Styr, the first Magnar. The rest are pretty self-explanatory; Garlan is better than Loras, Brienne is as well. Sandor could be anywhere from 3-5, Bronze Yohn, IMO, is pretty good, so I put him in there above Loras, although he could be anywhere from 7-10. Honorable mentions go to the Halfhand, Victarion, Bronn, Jorah, Thoros, and the Greatjon. Where we stand now: 1. Barristan Selmy 2. Mance Rayder 3. Garlan Tyrell 4. Brienne of Tarth 5. Bronze Yohn Royce 6. Areo Hotah 7. Jon Snow 8. Victarion Greyjoy 9. Balon Swann 10. Bronn I left off people that are believed to be dead/seriously wounded(Sandor, Loras), so that explains their absence. Jaime finds it difficult to swing a sword now, so that's why he's gone. I'm sure my selection of Jon will not go over well, but the kid has some (raw) talent, as shown during his brief fight will Mance. Swann has distinguished himself on the Blackwater; Victarion now has a magic hand, so probably could be higher. Bronn is up there last just because I don't think he could beat anyone before him, with the exception of Jon, but since he's going to tear shit up soon, I thought he deserved to be there.
  4. The farther we get into this season, the more I think both the Red and Purple weddings are going to happen this year.
  5. Quentyn possibly alive?

    He's dead, and I am always surprised when people say his POV was worthless. Quentyn's story wasn't about him, it was about the Dornish trying to bring Dany back west. It was about setting the dragon's free in order for them to go crazy when the Battle of Fire starts. Most importantly, it seals the deal for the Martells to wholeheartedly support Aegon/YG in the upcoming Dance 2.0. I also believe that Arch and Drink will end up being more important due to the fact that Dany, when/if she returns to Meereen, will have something resembling a Small Council/Westerosi Kingsguard for the journey West. She'll have a Hand(Tyrion), a Grand Admiral(Victarion), a Grand Maester(Marwyn), Lord Commander of her Queensguard(Barristan), and also, if they all survive/get back in Dany's good graces, six members to round out the Queensguard(Mormont, Drink, Arch, Barristan's squires/knights). Can we just let the kid rest in peace? This isn't like Jon's stabbing, where we all have been shown via dreams and Mel's fires that he'll be alive again. Quent's story is over. He came to late for Dany, and while he was brave for trying to tame a dragon, he was also stupid for trying to tame a dragon.
  6. [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    Ser Grandfather leading the charge against the slavers is going to be fucking awesome to read in its entirety. The height of his badassness just keeps getting higher, what with his reputation in Westeros, then staring down Drogon in the arena pits, and followed by his coup against Hizdahr. Now this? For an old man, he can sure kick ass and take names. I also find it interesting that the possible members of Dany's future Queensguard, meaning the knights that are in Meereen(Selmy, Mormont, the two Dornishmen, and Barristan's 3 newly made knights) will all end up battle tested due to the Battle of Fire. Considering she wants to be Queen, having a Queensguard that is battle-trained and tested will come in handy, if they all make it out alive. I can't way to see Victarion destroying shit with his new arm, and yet, I feel bad for Barristan considering his battle plan is all for naught as soon as the Dragonhorn is blown. I hope none of the POV's end up dead, because the conversations that will come about if they all live is going to make for some good entertainment and popcorn eating reading. Tyrion's miserable? Well of course he is, he gets overshadowed once again by someone taking all the glory, first Tywin, and now Victarion. I still think there's two more chapters about the battle, a Victarion and then a Tyrion one to follow the order someone suggested earlier of a Barristan-Victarion-Tyrion-Barristan sequence. We'll get Victarion storming the beaches, and then Tyrion helping to secure the release of the hostages during the melee. Also, Viserion and Rhaegal are more than likely going to show up and destroy some stuff, and we'll need to see that.
  7. The Tattered Prince is a Targaryen

    You would think Varys would know if he was Gerion and had told Tywin or Tyrion while they were in KL. Not to mention if Gerion=Tattered Prince he should have Brightroar, right? If they are one and the same, he's been fighting for 30 years, after going to Valyria and surviving. Damn, the Crow's Eye would look like a pansy compared to him.
  8. The Tattered Prince is a Targaryen

    No age given for Gerion, but the Tattered Prince is 53. "The Windblown went back thirty years, and had known but one commander, the soft-spoken, sad-eyed Pentoshi nobleman called the Tattered Prince. His hair and mail were silver-grey, but his ragged cloak was made of twists of cloth of many colors, blue and grey and purple, red and gold and green, magenta and vermilion and cerulean, all faded by the sun. When the Tattered Prince was three-and-twenty, as Dick Straw told the story, the magisters of Pentos had chosen him to be their new prince, hours after beheading their old prince."
  9. The Tattered Prince is a Targaryen

    Please, not another one. Jon and possibly a Lannister is enough for a secret Targ. Crackpot: He's Gerion Lannister.
  10. Rickon, the Black Wolf.

    SOB, i just deleted my long form, so here's my shorter version. Rickon is going to be defined later in life by 4 things: 1. Skagos 2. Who his regent is 3. What he remembers 4. Shaggydog 1 is important because it will give the wildlings a Lord of Winterfell who truly understands wildling customs and will accept them as men, not monsters.( Especially if Jon is already their King, they'll look at Starks in a much better light if the Bastard of Winterfell was their king and half-brother to Rickon). 2 and 3 are important because whomever his regent/who's ward he is(I believe Sansa with Jon as castellan of Winterfell), they will have to teach him to be a lord and, most importantly, set some ground rules for him. If he remembers everything, he'll want to make the South bleed from Moat Cailin to Dorne, which means he needs people who will look at his best interests(i.e. family) . And 4 is important because he has the largest and fiercest direwolf BY FAR. If something were to happen to Shaggy, such as Ramsey's bitches getting the better of him, then Rickon will be more pissed than he already is. Just my 2 cents.
  11. The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    Jaime and Brienne will end up in the Vale to fight Ser Robert Strong along with the Hound. Jaime and Sandor die, leaving Brienne to be the protector of the Stark girls(once Arya makes her way back across the sea, that is.)
  12. [Book Spoilers] EP 209 Discussion

    When the Hound came back from the battle, all I wanted was a "F*ck the King" line, but damn he did better than I expected. The Hound may yet be seen properly in the show. For book readers: Anyone else think Martin's dropping hints for future books? I thought the Cersei-Sansa exchange where Cersei was talking about Sansa being a "younger, beautiful" queen(that's what I took it as anyway), seemed like a hint on that prophecys front? Not to mention the fact that SanSan was pretty well shot down here, at least in a romantic way. Other than that, 12/10. The wildfyre alone got a 10/10.
  13. 1. Tyrion 2. Sansa 3. Jon 4. Rickon 5. Theon 6. Willas Tyrell 7. Arianne Martell 8. Edmure Tully 9. Sam Tarly 10. One of the dragons(probably Rhaegel or Viserion), or if not them, Varys
  14. How badly were the Manderly's bled during the war? I know one of the sons was killed, but how many of their soldiers were killed? I have a hard time seeing them make a play for anything if they lost over 50% of their men.
  15. The Fight at the Tower of Joy

    If Reed did warg into Dayne just before he died, would he have long-term mental ramifications, like a disorder or something? I like the theory, which would explain Howland sending his kids to Winterfell instead of going himself, if he was in a (sorta)vegetative state afterwards.
