  1. The problem here is that you don't need to kill even the yet unborn child to achieve the end of the Boltonlineage. All you need to do is sent the child to the Faith, the Citadel or even the NW and the line ends right there. There is also a reason why the Starks still have support in the North even after their apparent fall/extermination. That reason is not that they kill everyone (and their families) that crosses them but rather that they were fair and caring lords that got the North through many winters. When you use fear to rule, you run a risk that when you fall on hard times, those you ruled will turn on you and tear you apart. All we need to do is wait and see what happens to the Lannisters in the next books.
  2. I wouldn't mind if the Bump survived... You can always send the Bump to the Faith (regardless of its gender) or to the Citadel, if it is a boy. I would mind if the poor sods, that had the misfortune of living on the Bolton lands and therefore serving the Boltons, were indiscriminately put to sword.
  3. Is this quote from the books?

    It's pretty simple... Tyrells, Hightowers and Redwynes were pretty interconnected at the time of the RR. The Queen of Thorns was born Redwyne and Mace's wife is a Hightower. All of these families were Targaryen loyalist untilafter the Sack of KL and the end of Targaryen rule and dynasty in Westeros. Marrying Stannis to a house thathas a claim to the Highgarden and is generally opposed to the Tyrells is a raised finger that serves to constantly remind the group that one false step and Robert can give Highgarden to his loyal brother thus blowing up the existing status quo and alliances they spent considerable time building. All he has to do is acknowledge that the Florent claim holds merit.
  4. To the OP: If only there was a Targaryen with Targaryen coloring (hair and eyes) that effectively masked these very noticeable traits and managed to travel around Westeros unrecognized... As for the four Stark children taking after their mother... The problem here is that while Arryn's "seed is strong" is good to use on Robert it is no good for the Stark situation. In Robert's case we have dominant black hair and recessive blond hair. Here we have an incomplete dominant red hair and dominant brown hair. So, while in the first case we have a clear winner when it comes to the genetics (at least without going too deep into it), the same is not true for the second. We have roughly same probability of any Stark child having red hair or brown hair. You can't determine which seed is stronger or weaker based on number of children with some traits, because the probability of a child having some trait does not increase the more kids you have. Kinda like when you throw a dice, your probability of getting a six does not increase with more throws, it stays 1/6.
  5. I gave it a five... Meereen was ironically the best part of this episode with KL coming in close second, though Robert Strong was cringeworthy in his obviousness. Even the Wall wasn't all bad, when you ignore the fact that Jon's conversation with Sam is pretty much the exact opposite of what happens in the books. My only beef with the Wall is the end where the closing shot is just wrong...the whole scene doesn't live up to the closing scenes from previous seasons, but that closing shot is just bad. O probably wouldn't mint it as much if the shot was made to focus out on the larger surroundings like all the previous season closing shots. But this one focuses in and the result is just weird. From purely visional point, it would have made more sense to end the season with Dany's closing shot. I now realize that I probably shouldn't have made it a five, because I rated it as compared to other GoT episodes, not other TV. It should have been more like 7 or 8. The good parts mostly balance the bad parts out and Dany was spot on.
  6. Prince Lewyn's Paramour

    I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be one of the Daynes' ladies (though not Ashara). Every Dayne mentioned so far is described as very attractive and their Valyrian coloring would classify them as "rare"... Also, didn't Lewyn join the KG only after Doran was born ? He could have been in prior relationship that he simply continued secretively, which would imply that his paramour was from Dorne as well.
  7. Could Lightbringer be the Night's Watch?

    I don't know...the horn that wakes the sleepers part could simply mean that the NW warns everyone south of the Wall of the danger coming from beyond it, similar to how they send ravens to nearby lords, when they find out that some wildlings managed to cross the Wall. And concerning the ice dragons... I'd love to see them, if for no other reason then because they are just so different from what one would expect from a dragon. But they would be at a gross disadvantage against a conventional dragon and as only a fire seems to harm a wight, they'd be largely useless against them. I mean didn't that ice dragon in Martin's novel The Ice Dragon melt just by flying too far south? Wouldn't they start melting just by being near a strong fire without even being directly exposed to it? Also, the aspect of ice and winter appears to be "bad" so far so I don't see something like ice dragon even wanting or being willing to help the NW and as such their presence at the Wall probably wouldn't be a good thing.
  8. [ADwD Spoilers]The Mummers dragon

    Mummer's dragon definitely refers to Aegon being under Varys' thumb, it also quite likely means that Aegon is fake. Here is what makes me think that there is no way Aegon is a Targ : There is no evidence that Aegon is either, unless you take his incredible stupidity and naiveté for insanity (which I wouldn't blame anyone for). Another point against Aegon's authenticity is Varys' belief in him being just the right person for the throne. Varys always says he is working for the good of the realm, yet what we see is him destabilizing it and causing more death to the innocents both directly and indirectly. He has simply decided that his vision of what is best for the realm is the only right one. He is not someone who would ever endanger his power over Aegon and thus his plans for the realm by Aegon being the real heir to the throne, who could discard him anytime on a whim.

    The Targaryen sigil is a red three-headed dragon in black field and a sigil of House Blackfyre is a black three-headed dragon in red field.
