  1. Who will win the battle of Winterfell?

      Umm, we already knew that from the Theon chapter.
  2. Who will win the battle of Winterfell?

      All men must die.   I think the show may be a summarized/cliff notes version of the Battle of Ice.   Some desert Stannis' already weakening forces and he loses to Ramsay.  Stannis dies a ignoble death.   Then, Sansa then shows up with an army from the Vale.  Manderly then turns cloak to Sans's side and it allows a slaughter of the Boltons, as Manderly's men allow the Vale knights easy access to Winterfell, Sansa marches in as the new Stark in Winterfell.
  3. Ian McShane Cast

    Patrick Malahide, the actor that plays Theon’s father is 70 years old and does not look like a young man.  Ian McShane is 72, but looks younger than his age.  McShane could easily play Malahide’s younger brother Euron.   McShane also has the intensity and gravitas to play a harsh & demanding military father, like Randy Tarly.   I highly doubt he would play another Greyjoy and somebody not named as a member of the upcoming season 6 cast.
  4. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    Harry dumped his first baby mamma because she was too fat post childbirth. And, what's to stop a drunken party boy from raping Alayne Stone - right now, he thinks of her as baseborn daughter of Littlefinger, not Sansa Stark of Winterfell, daughter of one of the Great Lords of Westeros. For him, what's to stop drunk Harry from getting a little rough with the bastard daughter of Littlefinger? Then, if that happens, maybe Sansa strikes back & kills him (with a corkscrew) or similar?
  5. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    not even sure we'll get a a Kingsmoot. We get captured Yarasha telling Theon that Balon is dead and that the Silence returned and Euron is now king of the Iron Islands. Then, we get Euron as king next season
  6. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    It's possible they could combine the two - Waters has supposedly gone rogue, terrorizing the Stepstones using Cersei/Tommen's fleet
  7. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    Harry the Heir is already known to be something of a lout. Sure, maybe Sansa can manipulate him, but that won't be enough to stop a drunken Harry from forcing himself onto Sansa and abusing her as well. Sure, he may not be a sadist like Ramsay, but it will be rape and abuse if he roughly tossed her onto a bed and had his way with a protesting Sansa.
  8. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    Yes, usually they have announced who they're looking for in one big group. However, it is never an all-inclusive list - just the majority of new characters for the upcoming season. (I think Mance was separate from the rest of the season 3 characters announced?)
  9. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    for the folks hoping for a season 8, do you think that instead, D&D might do an extended, two-part Season 7? Like Breaking Bad and The Sopranos? 6 or 7 episodes in 7a in 2017, and then another 6 or 7 in season 7b in 2018.
  10. Who will win the battle of Winterfell?

    Wow - they really did put a lot of work into that. I read Dance twice (once when it came out, then again in early 2012 after I re-read the entire series), but I had forgotten some of the details they brought up in there.
  11. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    I'm pretty sure Aegon is a fake, but when I last re-read Game of Thrones, every description of baby Aegon in the book described the dead body as smashed beyond recognition. So, him being real does have at least a grain of possibility to it.
  12. [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    Yes, he's become one of my favorite characters. However, that's usually a bad sign for them - we already know he has more to say to Dany regarding her family, so he'll probably get stabbed in the back on his way to greet her triumphant return to Meereen.
  13. [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    In response to some of the posts above - yes, the Tyrells may be arrogant and overconfident, but I think the Ironborn are too few and their combat style is more suited to hit & run raids than head-to-head combat. The Ironborn have two chances of winning - luring the Tyrell army into a huge trap/ambush or having dragons allied with them. I don't think Euron would be able to count on his brother getting back with the dragons on time, So, that leave some sort of trap or ambush.
  14. [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    wow, thanks for all the notes Azador. Some great stuff. Did GRRM mention anything at all about any progress on the book itself? (It was posted a few times early in the thread and I read nearly every post to see if it was answered and I did not see the answer...)
  15. The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    What I'm wondering is, who steps up to fight against Ser Robert Strong? Lancel Lannister? Jamie? Maybe the Hound? Somebody else?
