  1. GoT cast Ian McShane for season 6! Who you got?

    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. The Back of a Westeros Milk Carton

    Good updated list! ETA: As for Wenda the White Fawn, I've seen a few compelling arguments that she is, in fact, Septa Lemore.
  3. The Back of a Westeros Milk Carton

    He's not one of the ones listed as missing. I'll throw in Kyle Condon and Ronnel Stout. Richard Lonmouth. Maege Mormont and Galbart Glover.

  5. Waymar Royce v. The Others

    We don't know for sure that dragonsteel is Valyrian steel. That's just Jon and Sam's guess and it hasn't been confirmed (bear in mind that the original Long Night would have occurred thousands of years before Valyrian steel was first developed). I think the Other was actually checking to see if it was obsidian, something that we have actually seen a NW brother use to actually kill an Other.
  6. The Tattered Prince is a Targaryen

    Don't give them any ideas.
  7. The Tattered Prince is a Targaryen

    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.
  8. The Tattered Prince is a Targaryen

    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.
  9. The Tattered Prince is a Targaryen

    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.
  10. Crackpot Alert: Might Lem Be Richard Lonmouth?

    Very nice. And yes I can see Jaime being the one to sort it out. Although it'd be funny if Lem kept the Hound helm on the whole time. :P
  11. The 'UnJon' assumption

    I'm not sure he's actually dead. But if he is, and he's resurrected in some way, I think his consciousness being in Ghost is what will keep him from being a Beric or an UnCat. Him warging into Ghost essentially means that for now, his consciousness is "holding" (and, yeah, if it stayed in Ghost long-term, it would deteriorate). Whereas with UnCat and Beric, they didn't have that "vessel" to hold their consciousnesses, meaning that deterioration began immediately. In Catelyn's case, being dead a few days was enough to completely warp her personality. But if Jon is out for a short period, in theory, he could return to his healed body from Ghost and be more or less as he was before, with maybe a bit of wolfish-ness. This is essentially what Melisandre sees: man to wolf and back to man.
  12. Crackpot Alert: Might Lem Be Richard Lonmouth?

    Yep to all of this. :D
  13. Crackpot Alert: Might Lem Be Richard Lonmouth?

    Minor WoIaF spoiler ...
  14. I wouldn't want to argue with me.

      The Mother of The Others

      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)

    2. Kaminsod


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

      Ser Cold Fingers

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