  1. The "Handsome Young Man" (Show Spoilers)

    Let's look at possible options: 1. Lancel - this is the simplest solution, but on closer examination this does not work: I agree that Lancel is not for Littlefinger to give; He must have confessed his sins long ago, otherwise it would be a very bizarre and unrealistic writing: Lancel becomes "born again", participates if pogroms organised by Faith, but keeps his sins for himslef, until immoral Littlefinger tips off Tyrells / High Septon about those? Would not the Faith punish Lancel for keeping his sins for himself for so long? High Septon says that a young man came to him... 2. Olyvar - this could work, if LF gets him murdered or he changes the testimony, but why would they trust a 2nd testimony more thn the 1st? Anyway I believe Olyvar still seems more logical than Lancel. 3. Robin Arryn - I understand "A handsome Young Man" is an expression, but somehow I can not see sweetobin quolifying as one... besides whats his use for Tyrells? some said they are goung to crown him - I am sorry but this does not work - Robin has no ZERO claim to the Iron Throne - there is no way they can crown him without a huge civil war/confusion in the country, besides even if they succeed in this conspiracy - this is a long term process - bringing army of Arryn, slaughtering people in KL, etc... How exactly is this going to help Loras and Margery? They are the priority for Olenna, not the Iron Throne. LF is offering her a gift that will help her to save/iprove the situation of her grandchildren, and Robin Arryn is definitely of little help when it comes to pending trial. If they hope he will bring the Army of Vale to scare the Faith… well the Tyrells have even bigger Army but High Septon seems not to care… 4. Gendry - this could work if he is used (in combination with the Genealogy Book from Season One) to prove Sersei's relations with Jaime, and to dethtone Tommen - but again - I can not seehow this can help Olenna to save/help Loras and Margery here and now. 5. fAegon - whell, if suddenly the faith becomes very supportive of fAegon (why?) then after getting the crown he could help Loras and Margery by Royal decree, crackdown on the church, etc but is not it too complicated? If Tommen is unable to attack the Faith today, whill the newly crowned fAegon able to do it Tomorrow? 6. Jon, Ramsey, Greyjoys and Essos gang are too far away to matter at this point. So, in conclusion, it seems to me it is either Lancel (making the writing sloppy), Olyvar (there is still hope they can come up with a logical explanation/justification) or someone we totally do not expect…The Mountain maybe?????
  2. + The faceless Man needed pates face to infiltrate the Citadel, why would he need 2 faces for 1 task?
  3. I am sorry, this is so crackpot, that it borders on trolling... Hogwarts has nothing to do with this, it is pretty obvious that Sam is not going to stay at the Oldown for long, Oldtown is about to be sucked by the Ironborn and Sam will have to witness that/escape and meet his father Lord Turly (Who by the way is being cast for Season 6, and not just Sams father, but his mother, sister and brother as well !!!) why the hell would "Sam the Faceless Man" visit his sister and brother???
  4. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    From what I saw, most people presume that the Leading Actress and traveling theater is usually linked to Aryas story, but what if this is Altered "Team Aegon" and she is some kind of replacement for Lemore?
  5. The Complete Winds of Winter Resource v. 2

    I believe and hope this will be Damphair chapter - he was eager to read it all those years back, Greyjoy storiline is often criticised as being reduntant, extraneous, etc - so this could be anoither way of him proving that "yes, Greyjoys matter and they are in the book for a reason".
  6. Rickon's Role

    I see Rickon as eventual "Stark in Winterfell". He might not necessarily take active role in the events but his supporters would put hime in Winterfell after all is said and done. I could also expect that his "wildness" would result in much less friendly/peaceful personality than his parents and siblings. As a neet twist if eventiually he will turn out to be almost as ruthless and cruel as Joffrey/Ramsey, but as he is a Stark we will have to overlook/justify his actions. (for example in the epilogue it could be mentioned that he eliminated all the houses he thought did wrong his family).... This could be part of GRRM's "bittersweet ending" - justice is served, Stark is back in WF, but somehow it will leave with bitter taste....
  7. [TWOW Spoilers] Alayne I, v. 3

    As a matter of fact it just occured to me that Sansa might have unexpectedly unpleasant wedding night with Harry the Hair, somehow resembling what we saw on TV series, the trick being that in case of Ramsey on the show we knew what he wascapable of, while it would be an unpleasant surprise if it turns out that Harry can be more than arrogant jerk. This actually could be the controversial chapter of Sansa in TWOW.
  8. On the Sand Snakes

    I must admit I have been very tolerant to various book to screen changes on GoT but Sand Snakes feel as a definitive misfire ... again, just like in case of Talissa/Rob romance the problem is not that they altered the story, but that they altered it in a very awkward manner, at least Talissa had a personality and one did care for her when she died, this three are closest thing the series has to Xena and the like… somehow it also reminds me of Yarra/Asha-s ark - I have impression that when she announced to sail and retrieve her brother back in Season 3, initially they planned to have a longer more extensive story for her, then it did not work/ they could not fit it into 10 episode season and we ended up with a brief Dreadfort attack that came out of blue and lead to nothing... It would have been much more effective to have her travel slightly longer, maybe accdientaly interact with some "mainland" characters and end the season ark (S3 or S 4) with a reveal of a totally broken Theon... here too, they hyped the Sand Snakes, hired bunch of actors for Dornish plot - and what? to have this extremely awkward confrontation when everyone, literally everyone in Dorne gathers in a single location, in the royal garden, with prince overlooking the proceedings from the balcony?
  9. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    Also, from AFFC/ADWD material it is not quite clear which minor characters can become more important in TWOW (as this might increase their chances to be included in TV adaptation)
  10. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    The only "major" character I am relatively hopeful of seeing in Season 6 is Euron – if they could have Bran sit out the entire season, they can do same with entire Ironborn plot, I believe the Ironborn will return in Season 6, but Vicatrion and Aeron will be absorbed into Euron and Yarra characters. As to the rest it is impossible to tell now, at least until we see Season5; I am already pretty confident that Aryanne and Quent are cut. Aryannes functions will be split between Ellaria, Sandsnakes and possibly Myrcella. Weather Trystan will be borrowing the story arks of Aegon or Quentyn or both – we have to see. I would say there is still a small chance for the Griff story / and maybe Lord Tarly as well. And I won't be surprised if they bring back Gendry to replace some character (s) from the books.
  11. 1.Jon's resurrection/ Stannis/Theon 2. Aegon/Connington "westerosi black death" epidemic and 2nd dance of dragons 3. Citadel and Eurons invasion
  12. Rickon's Role

    I subscribe to the opinion that Rickon will be the Stark in Winterfell, an the Stark lineage will continue through him... Whether he will play an active role in the books it's a different matter: I can see him remaining a non-POW Stark, just like Robb, his story being told by other POVs. I think he will get the Winterfell through his supporters (Manderlay, Stannis, possibly Jon) and there will be quite bit of drama of making him Lord of Winterfell, but he will not be a particularly active character himself. The epilogue, or last chapters of ADOS might tell or mention his future endeavours, but for the most of the books he will be a pawn (though possibly a quite aggressive one) in the hands of his supporters.
  13. I think a lot of these predictions are quite correct and logical.
  14. [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    This is all quite possible however: As Arianne is "Eyes of Dorne" in Stormlands and possibly even in KL, thus Areoh migh be needed as our Eyes in the Dorne - for how long thats another matter... Theon and Asha - they are at the same point now - but this does not mean they can not split into different directions - being at the same point for a while does not automatically mean death to one of the PoVs - after all - in GoT we had several PoVs at the same location for almost entire book ( in KL - Edd, Sansa, Arya, briefly Joined by Cat; not to mention that almost all Povs exept Danny gathered in Winterfell in the beginning of Got)
  15. Jon and Val an item in WoW?

    I don't expect Jon and Val becaming item in TWOW simply because I think Jon will spend most (if not entire) TWOW warged in his direwolf. I am not sure Vall will be still around or even alive by the time Jon "awakens".
