  1. The Hooded Man new (?) theory...(possible spoilers)

    In Theon's PoV, when Little Walder was found dead Rowan said to Theon, "This was no work of ours." It kind of felt like a defendant saying, "I would never rob that kind of store."
  2. The Hooded Man new (?) theory...(possible spoilers)

    I am beginning to warm up to this theory. I finally broke down and re-read AFfC and one thing that stuck out to me during Jaime's resolution of the siege of Riverrun was his parlay with the Freys in which they said Raynald cut out Greywind from the net, was struck a few times with arrows and fell into the river. The text intimated that Jaime dreaded the thought he may still be alive. IIRC Theon left to negotiate Robb's deal before Robb met the Westerlings, so Theon would have no basis to know Raynald. Because Roose Bolton's camp broke off from Robb and held Harrenhal, they know of the Westerlings, but may not have had the opportunity to identify him at the RW. Since they assume he is dead, he may be able to blend in as some nobody in Winterfell. He may have even seen Arya's wedding. He would assume that Theon is a turncloak and a kinslayer because, though he is not bound by blood to the Starks, he is affiliated with the Starks through his sister's marriage. He would assume a ward would have similar levels of devotion. He also wouldn't know what the Northern nobles would about the youngest Stark boys not being dead. As possibilities go, it is a longshot, but so many other ideas proffered don't add up either.
  3. House Thenn

    I think that was his plan while heading south of the Wall, but good plans are always flexible, and in the south I think they will take a keen interest in learning how to work iron. They may like it and stay. Mayhaps a future novella will have a younger son return north and reclaim his ancestral home.
  4. Theory on Maggy's prophecy and new definition for 'Volanqar'

    If R + L = J Jon is her nephew.
  5. Theory on Maggy's prophecy and new definition for 'Volanqar'

    OK....so let me explain this a little slower... "The valonquar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat..." The plural form was used, meaning both hands have sufficient flexibility to wrap around said throat. I missed the part where Maggy said, "the valonquar shall wrap his good hand around your pale white throat, while pawing you with his golden stump, and choke the life out of you." How exactly do you expect Jaime to wrap a metal stump around anyone's throat?
  6. Theory on Maggy's prophecy and new definition for 'Volanqar'

    I'd like to point out that Maggy the Frog said, "the Valonquar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you." I find it peculiar that people think it is Jaime when GRRM used the plural form after the Bloddy Mummers took his sword hand. The brothers she has with 2 hands are Tyrion and, her brother by marriage, Stannis.
  7. What does Blackfish have against Jon Snow?

    Wasn't the Blackfish a bastard as well?
  8. Who will win the battle of Winterfell?

    He is quite cunning, but under pressure even cunning people are prone to make mistakes. Clearly, once he noticed the Manderlys didn't bring hostages to Winterfell, he expected treachery, but open hostility between the Freys and Manderlys inside Winterfell was not quite expected and something had to be done quickly. I wouldn't be too surprised if he decides to let niether side back in after the battle with Stannis and they have t oenter using some sectret entrance, maybe from the crypt under Winterfell.
  9. Who will win the battle of Winterfell?

    I believe my theory has been burgled...
  10. [Book Spoilers] EP 207 Discussion

    From his conversation with the pyromancer and Bronn I am assuming there won't be one nor will they be flinging wildfire with catapults(it probably would have busted their meager budget). I think what will happen is they will use the pots more like mines than bombs-this will be Tyrion's idea-and fling hot coals from the catapults.
  11. [Book Spoilers] Ep 203 Discussion

    No, Shagga broke down the door with his axe, but Tyrion told him to cut off his manhood and feed it to the goats in order to freak out Pycelle. The only thing that got cut off was Pycelle's beard.
  12. [Book Spoilers] Ep 203 Discussion

    Actually the books implied the relationship and left it for cleverer readers to figure out. Dudes making out is overt, and will be as poorly received as it was in TrueBlood.
  13. Handsome and free...the wildling life's for me.

  14. How would you rate episode 201?

    That line isn't until after Robb's victory at Oxcross.
