  1. If Jon becomes King , who will be his Queen ?

    Why would he need Bran when he could skinchange the dragon himself? He could gain a newfound appreciation for skinchanging after the Ides of Marsh given it helped to save his life. Borroq likely is mentioned for a reason. He has was around when Varamyr was a kid, and is likely the oldest and most experienced skinchanger after BR. He could serve as a mentor to Jon for skinchanging. With Jon comparing himself to Valyrian steel add to that Donal Noye's quote regarding the Baratheon brothers: "Robert was the true steel. Stannis is pure iron, black and hard and strong, yes, but brittle, the way iron gets. He'll break before he bends. And Renly, that one, he's copper, bright and shiny, pretty to look at but not worth all that much at the end of the day." With the comparisons of men to metals, Robert who was the only one to sit the IT was compared to steel. So, in that quote Jon comparing himself to Valyrian steel, it is not just being hinted at being Valyrian in heritage, but being made of the stuff of kings. With Valyrian steel being the best quality metal, it could be saying Jon has the potential to be the best kind of king.
  2. No, it doesn't make him a red herring because no one is explicitly declaring him as AA. The flaming sword is in a single dream he has, and no one even calls him AA in that dream nor does Jon think if himself as AA. GRRM is very explicit with red herrings like Tyrion being the one who sent the footpad, and the Lannisters being the ones who killed Jon Arryn. No one outright says Jon is AA so he isn't a red herring in the way GRRM uses it.
  3. [TWoW Spoilers] Aeron I (Balticon)

    Euron is officially the worst brother ever: killing three brothers and sexually abusing two. I agree with the theory that the dwarves fighting and making love refer to the claimants for the IT fighting and making alliances such as the case with Arianne and Aegon which does involve actual copulation. The warlock shouting "Pree" pretty much confirms that Pyat Pree's party was the group Euron captured. I also agree with Lord Varys that Euron got the armor from the warlocks as his response to the Reader's inquiries suggests he is full of shit. Poor Falia, her CInderella story apparently doesn't have a happy ending. It just demonstrates that Euron isn't loyal to anyone. As to Ran's assertion about Euron being a dreamer or greenseer, I think the throne of skulls might suggest that given we see plenty of skulls on the walls in the CotF cave, and Melisandre sees skulls about Jon when we know BranRaven is going to help him. The woman with him possibly being the Others' leader brings to mind the Queen of the Norns from MS&T who rules from a mountain in a cold land far North. As for the Shields, he made sure he gave them to rivals and supporters of rivals, so his rivals are weakened if they lose them.
  4. Can Cersei be redeemed?

    Except it didn't start that way as the decision was made under coercion as Cersei wasn't looking for her consent an she clearly wanted to emulate Robert when he assaulted Cersei. As for the fact that she is a former prostitute, that same mode of thinking is why sex workers have trouble pressing charges against people who sexually assaulted them. Except the consent was coerced, which doesn't count as actual consent. Cersei acted when Taena was asleep, and she was trying emulate Robert when he forced himself on her. Sexual assault is a serious subject.
  5. Can Cersei be redeemed?

    Cersei acted upon Taena when she was still sleeping, and unable to give her consent when Cersei started. Taena only gave the "yes" when Cersei was in the middle of it, and Taena felt she had little choice. On top of that, Cersei was thinking about claiming her rights as queen as Robert did with her as king when he was drunk and sexually assaulted her. That is a big hint. Consent doesn't change with the times, and it isn't modernist. Sexual assault is the same in medieval times as it his in modern.
  6. Can Cersei be redeemed?

    Forced consent doesn't count.
  7. Can Cersei be redeemed?

    She did it without Taena's consent, and no consent=sexual assault. Cersei is narcissistic and psychopathic, and her love for her brother and her children relates to seeing them as extensions or mirrors of herself. She is the classic Evil Queen. I don't think she is going to be redeemed, but rather die horribly.
  8. Could Drogon Be The Reincarnation of Balerion

    One note about Balerion is that every mentioned rider to mount him sat the IT: Aegon I, Maegor I and Viserys. Drogon clearly is a reference to Balerion the Black Dread, the mount of kings. I think we can take it to mean that whoever mounts him at the end will sit the IT.
  9. Will Jalabhar Xho ever reconquer the Summer Isles?

    I tend to think he will play a brief significant role in the story later in the series as well. I doubt he is sticking around just to contribute nothing to the plot.
  10. GRRM said this series isn't an allegory for our times.
  11. How will Tyrion and Dany get along?

    Tyrion wouldn't tell her that, and he will likely have helped out in Meereen in consolidating her rule there, and rooting out the Sons of the Harpy.
  12. Margaery's Moon Tea

    Margaery could have been asking for someone else.
  13. Will Ser Barristan defect to Aegon?

    Yeah, and if Hizdahr demands a trial by combat, custom would have Barristan defend him since he is still Dany's husband. Barristan gave his oath of fealty to Dany, and I doubt he would break it for Aegon.
  14. Skahaz is scum

    Skahaz is shown to be ruthless and needlessly cruel in his actions. He is always eager to employ violence and torture.
  15. Moments of Foreshadowing v.11

    I saw that too. Perhaps like Jaime's inspiration Lancelot, they'll conceive a son who will be the ASOIAF-version of Galahad who will be considered the best knight in the realm when he grows up, and serve in the KG like both his parents (Brienne was in Renly's Rainbow Guard). I think I know who would fire the arrow. "Well, how long does a dragon live?" She looked up as Viserion swooped low over the ship, his wings beating slowly and stirring the limp sails. Viseripon is mentioned right after she asks about dragons' lifespans. What's more, ship and sails are mentioned. Do we know of any characters whose sigil is a ship? A certain onion knight who lost four of his eldest sons to Tyrion's wildfire plan. WOIAF provides a potential hint with a hero from the Stormlands: Davos the Dragonslayer.
