  1. Gerold Hightower in the Tower of Joy flashback.   Neither Euron nor Tarly are small roles (the casting call listings emphasized that both were really good, meaty parts). Those roles also wouldn't justify the secrecy. It looks like a small role but that still has an impact; that makes it seem like almost a cameo sort of thing. It being a ToJ Kingsguard would explain why they're tight-lipped around the role's identity. He's the right age and look for Hightower, too.
  2. Stop looking at my profile.

      Stop lookin' at me, swan!

  3. Don't give them any ideas.
  4. It really is not. Maegor Targaryen was born in 232 and was still a baby when Aegon V came to the throne in 233. We know from the World book that the Tattered Prince was named the prince of Pentos in 262 and from ADWD that this was when he was 23 years old, putting his birth in 239 or 238, still making him "past 60" in 300 the way he's described in ADWD. So Maegor is too old to be the Tattered Prince and the Tattered Prince is too old to be a direct descendant of Maegor. ... Sorry.
  5. I don't think it's out of the ordinary for a highborn person to know "proper" Valyrian. Just like there's a "queen's English" upper-class variation of the English language along with numerous other dialects and accents. Sorry but a guy who's probably of general Valyrian descent looking and talking like someone of general Valyrian descent does not make him a Targaryen.
  6. Eight of the nine Free Cities are old Valyrian colonies. A lot of people in those cities, especially the nobility and the upper classes (read: dudes most likely to be voted into leadership), are of Valyrian descent, meaning they could feasibly have Valyrian physical features including hair and eye color. Different dialects of Valyrian are also spoken throughout the Free Cities, so it isn't a big deal that this guy speaks Valyrian. Not everyone is a secret Targaryen.
  7. I wouldn't want to argue with me.

      Did you know that you can comment about these comments on people's pages? It's weird! I just discovered this AND Jimboy's Tacos on the same night. Hi to Ms. Apple Martini, which was, by the way, Zack Braff's favorite fruity alcoholic beverage on Scrubs, whereas I like to say MOJITO with all the latin gusto I can muster ....Go Saints! (no arguing took place here)

      I doubt anyone wants to argue with you, for several reasons.

      I argued with myself once. It started out cordial, but then I disagreed with myself, then it turned into an argument...now I don't talked to myself.

  8. But that's not how we see them doing it up to this point. At this point, all we've seen are them taking dead people's faces. You mention Melisandre, but her glamors don't really resemble how we've seen the FM operate with their faces, so I'm not sure why she's relevant to the argument. Based on what we've actually seen the Faceless Men actually do, for Arya to actually use Sansa's face, Sansa would have to be dead. And I don't see that happening. And LOL at Sansa being a "fan favorite." I love her, yes, and she has her fans, but a huge number of people even on here give her a huge amount of (undeserved) scorn.
  9. I don't agree with it at all but at least it's different. ETA: Isn't the inventory of faces you can take limited to dead people? So if Arya is impersonating Sansa by taking on her appearance, that means Sansa will be dead. Like Jaqen killed Pate and then took his face, and all the faces of dead people that Arya sees in the House of Black and White. Are you willing to go that far with this theory? ETA2: I think the "twist" with this prophecy has already occurred, with people thinking that Sansa ripping the head off the doll fulfilled the prophecy when, I'd strongly argue, it didn't. Which sets up a surprise later on when Sansa actually fulfills it.
  10. I think it's Gerion who's the favorite candidate for that one, for some reason.
  11. I'm just saying that he could if he wanted to. It's his choice whether to give something to Myrcella.
  12. But again, that's why grabbing him when they did was a smart move. At the time, no one really cared or tried too hard to find him. But you let the inter-family conflict play itself out and meddle where you can (i.e. Varys and Littlefinger, in various combinations, effectively remove Tywin, Tyrion, Joffrey and Kevan), and bide your time, and eventually he's much closer to the front of the line. If Tyrek had been toward the front of the line at the time he'd vanished, he'd have been a much higher-value target, meaning the family would have worked harder to find him, which diminishes the intelligence of stealing him in the first place. It's because at the time he seems so unimportant that the kidnapping works. And I don't think Tyrek is in on it, no. I think he's probably a prisoner being set up as a puppet governor.
  13. And it's not the list as it is now. So claiming that Tyrek becoming lord of Casterly Rock is "preposterous" based on the old list is ridiculous. Obviously the list has been manipulated and whittled since he disappeared, that's the point. No one gave a shit when the twelfth Lannister in line disappeared, which was why taking that particular Lannister was so clever. Still nope. Cersei would the lady of Casterly Rock in her own right no matter how old Tommen is. Tywin is dead, Jaime disinherited and Tyrion wanted for murder and treason. She's next in line. There's no "for all intents and purposes." She is the lady of Casterly Rock, period. Tommen doesn't inherit it until she dies or she abdicates it to him, no matter how old he is. I believe it's an optional thing. Like in theory Robert could have held onto Storm's End but instead gave it to Renly. And Tommen could in theory hold both the throne and Casterly Rock, but he might pass it to Myrcella.
