  1. Without having seen any previews or even the trailer, these are my brazen, bold predictions or where I believe the story should be going in episode 2 : Edd will tell Bran & Meera that Jon and Sansa have retaken Winterfell. A few hours later, Melisandre arrives with a warning that tomorrow there will be an attack on the wall. Mel speaks with Bran and senses that he has been tainted with the mark of the others, she is repulsed by him. Meera fends off Melisandre. Bran & Meera spend the night at Castle Black. Bran, replays a vision of how the Wall was created. He sees the 3ER holding hands with, some children of the forest and another man is there too, who 3ERaven calls Lord Stark. Cersei says they can call on support from Littlefinger’s Vale Army. Jaime informs her that the Vale joined forces with Jon Snow’s wildlings and have retaken Winterfell. Cersei thinks that LF has claimed WF in the name of the crown just like she tasked him with doing. She surmises that Jon Snow will never have control of WF due to his bastard status, but considers him a threat none the less. Hoping to distance him self from her, Jaime asks if he should go and parlay with Jon Snow but Cersei demands that Jaime stay by her side. LF explains to Sansa and Jon that they must go to King’s Landing to negotiate with the crown. Sansa agrees to go with him to Jon's dismay. Sansa assures him she will be ok with Brienne (& Pod) with her. Yara & Theon are shown fishing and sailing around the coast when they happen upon driftmark where they meet Gendry asking for passage back to the mainland as he says his skiff was ruined in a storm. Yara takes interest in him and says he might make a good cabin boy, Gendry tells her he is good at smithing. We see Euron's Fleet attacking the Dornish coast. His men surprise attack at night steal all the caskets of wine and even take the sand snakes hostage. Back at the Wall Meera tells Bran the story of the laughing knight. They slowly begin to kiss, and Bran briefly accesses her memories to a time when her and Jojen visited Winterfell with her father. Bejen says to Howland, "she asked me to give you this letter." Howland looks at it and says "leave it with her body." At Dragonstone Dany’s crew along with Greyworm and Tyrion, draw up battle plans to attack King’s Landing. Varys informs them that Queen Cersei has taken over the city killing off King Tommen and Queen Margery. Dany questions if they should allow them the chance to surrender. Tyrion assures her that Cersei would never surrender. Dany states that she wishes to address the people. Tyrion believes that they will expect an attack coming from the east coast but, will not expect a simultaneous attack from North & South. That night Tyrion & Dany explore the castle they find something interesting in an unexpected area. Back at WF Jon is in the god's wood when he hears a voice whispering to him. "Jon" It’s the 3 eyed raven,Jon asks." what are you? "I'm your brother" The Raven is perched on a Weirwood root. A tree face appears through the dirt wall. Bran? He asks. Bran tells him to "follow me I have to show you something" He follows him to Lyanna’s grave. The Raven communicates to him and says, look closer. As Jon uncovers a hidden box with a scroll, the scroll says: deliver to Howland Reed.
  2. That's only a stock answer,and it's obvious knowledge. I am asking people to speculate on what we don't know, based on what we do know about the CotFs inclination for using dragonglass as well as how the Valyrians loved to use it to build structures.
  3. Yes looking back on it now, and really dwelling on details like Mel & everyone else leaving the room except ghost and Davos, and the fact that the ceremony had no resemblance to what Thoros did to rez Beric, leads me to believe that Mel might of had nothing to do with it, but rather it was some unexplainable phenomenon such as warging would be to the lay person. That isn't to say that Mel doesn't have a significant role to play going forward. I'd like to see her be responsible for bringing Jon and Dany together.
  4. I really have to wonder,did Qyburn use Dragonglass to make Gregor Clegane become a wight? We did see some rather telling Text in screenshots from S7e1 where Sam is reading a book on Dragonglass and it says fragmented "ingestion, not harmful , cure for illness ,diseases" We know he was thrown out of the Citadel, (probably by ArchMaester Ebrose) for trying to surpass Ebrose in studies of biology by doing "forbidden experiments". If the Citadel is probably the only place that has info on dragonglass, doesn't it seem most likely that Qyburn being so ambitious would have acquired it and attempted to use it? Also knowing what we know about Maesters and the probable conspiracy against magic that most certainly would be reason to give Qyburn the boot. Futhermore Gregor does seem rather wightish, and the only other method we know of raising the dead is through the last kiss ritual , which seems very unlikely that Qyburn would perform on Gregor how else could he have possibly raised greg without the obsidian? Now you are probably thinking how or where did Qyburn could have gotten his hands on Dragonglass. Well it wouldn't be that hard seeing as how they have Glass Candles made of it at the Citadel. Did Qyburn shove a glass candle inside Gregor? That makes for an even more intriguing theory knowing how glass candles can manipulate dreams and communicate telepathically. Is the power Qyburn holds over Gregor the same the Night King has over the wights?
  5. I was wondering, since the Night's watch are often referred to as Crows, and we have lots and lots of animal symbolism...We know that White Ravens are more rare ,larger, and smarter than black ones, and they will fight black ravens if near making them mirror opposites of black ravens.The white ravens are used only by Maesters to signify a change in season so in a sense they represent change. We have many groups of characters that could conceivably represent a crow or raven, but what person and group of people represent the white ravens?
  6. What are the chances that the show will just reveal that the wall is actually pieced together or consisting heavily of Dragonglass? Is it already a forgone conclusion? Is there a link between the children's magic and valyrian magic?
  7. Obviously because if she did accept his offer she would have quickly found out that his army was a lot smaller it would be a lie and an insult and cause a whole lot of civil and internal conflict, thus damning the alliance from the get go.
  8. With the way things are going in the new season,especially with episode 9, I can't help but wonder if Jon Snow's mortality is somehow tethered to Melisandre's. Things are finally looking better for Sansa, Jon and basically the good guys. They had a major victory, reclaimed there home, took revenge on probably their biggest threat other than the White Walkers...this is all a sign that things are just about to go horribly wrong. Following the rules of gravity that what goes up must come down, such is the narrative of ASOIAF. So what could possibly happen that could ruin things for Jon and his plans to defend the North from the WWs? Well he could die...again. yes I know the probability of him dying again so soon, has gotta be slim but, when being resurrected, there's always a price. Maybe that price is that Jon's body partially belongs to the Lord of light. Mel speculated last episode that Jon could have been brought back for Any minute purpose. What I theorize comes from Mel's prophecies in the book about "the lord of light made us male & female for a reason." and "there is great power in the connection." This leads me to believe that R'hllor brought back Jon so that he can produce a messiah child. The mother of this child would also need to be some one very significant, chosen by R'hllor if you will, and perhaps even baptised by fire as a sense of resurrection. Of corse I am speaking of Daenerys. However I believe Mel still has a very important role to play in this, otherwise the Lord would not be keeping her alive. It seems that Mel will need to help conjugate the marriage between Jon & Dany. Also perhaps Melisandre is needed to "bless" the child while in the womb or otherwise. The Child could easily be AA reborn or TPWWP. However, if man interferes in the lord's plan and exacts his revenge, there will surely be consequences. Im speaking of corse about Davos looking to put an end to the red woman for her unforgivable and unnecessary, burning of Shireen. Futhermore it might very well come down to Jon being asked to execute Melisandre, putting the blame and burden solely on him. Getting back to the idea that Jon Snow's life is some what tethered to Mel's,I feel as though Mel is a vessel in which the Lord is able to channel his power through and thus keep Jon a float. If Mel were to parish I feel that Jon would begin to suffer. Maybe his wounds would return, fester, burn, or perhaps something more subtle. I would look towards stories such as the 10 commandments as examples of wherein man invokes God's wrath.Think about what happened to Samson when he betrayed God and allowed his hair to be removed, or when Adam and Eve sinned and immediately became embarrassed for the 1st time of their naked bodies. Jon might become estranged, listless, or mentally twisted like patch face. Whatever the particulars come about, I see the outcome of Mel's fate being crucial to Jon's future. What type of impact do you think Mel's murder would have on the characters?
  9. Doran is also not an idiot,and even if he isnt the smartest man, he still takes so much time to calculate that he would have certainly prepared Quentyn more, and He IS very cautious especially with his children. It makes no sense to allow the Yronwoods to be responsible for Quentyn on this task. Also if Quentyn wasn't certain about the military size, why would he brag about it to her?
  10. Is there any evidence otherwise? I mean look at how poorly he equipped and prepared Quentyn for the task. Look at how very few resources he gave him. Not even any nice clothes to impress his future bride. He gave Arianne a book on dragons, yet made no mention of such book to Quentyn. He even recruited his rival house, the Yronwood's in Quentyn's mission. He either gave or allowed Quentyn to believe the false knowledge of the Dornish military size. The whole thing seemed like a no chance in hell scenario.
  11. One of the most complex of mysteries to me has been: Who does House Martell (& specifically Doran) cast their support with? For the longest time I thought it was the Targaryens (mostly due to Rhaegar & Elia), yet as of today I no longer believe such. The Martells do not seem to be in support of Targ rule, even as a means of putting themselves closer to the throne, in fact quite the opposite. Evidence of this being that Doran purposefully setup Quentyn to fail in a bid to make an alliance with Dany, yet gave Arianne every measure of his support. This also leads me to believe that Doran knows young griff is not a Targ. However I am still very much perplexed as to why he would seemingly sacrifice his son & spite Dany at the same time. If this all turns out to be true, what is Doran's strategy? Does he actually believe he can take the throne without any alliance? or does he have a secret partnership in the waiting? Do (f) Aegon and the Golden Company represent something other than Targ rulership?
  12. GRRM tells us Dany was born 8-9 months after Jon. Isn't that suspicious 8-9 months is just about how long it takes to have a child. If we assume that Jon was born very close to the time when Ned arrived at the TOJ, and not that Jon was already over a month old (Highly unlikely IMO) then Ned goes to see Ashara and boom 8-9 months later Dany is born? coincidence? AND we have reports of not only Ashara having a child but her suicide as well...awfully suspicious. the timing would be pretty on point. The idea that the stillborn child and the suicide rumors are linked says to me that they happened around the same time ( Im guessing under a month in between events). Now granted we dont know when the stillbirth rumors started circulating or when the suicide report did, but.. The fact that barristan says "she looked to Stark." leads me to believe she was in love with Ned. The fact that Ned didnt stay long with her at Starfall points to her not being suicidal, as I seriously doubt would leave her, at least not so soon, if he felt she was feeling miserable. No I believe they made a plan that involved secretive child raising. The plan seemed to call for extreme discretion, thus we have Ashara faking her death.
  13. As much as I hate to oppose the idea of Ashara & Rhaegar being the parents of either Jon, or Dany,I just have to point out that the song Dareon sings in Braavos about the woman throwing herself from the tower over distraught of her prince...Thats a reference to the bael the bard story, which is in itself a reflection of Rhaegar & Lyanna. In the song, the girl that fell from the tower was a Stark, hence a reference to Lyanna's death. It is interesting though that it parallels Ashara quite literally and metaphorically if you consider her lover to have been her "prince" as in the way any woman might romanticize her significant other. Except that she wasn't a Stark and none of her would be suitors could be described as a bard save for Rhaegar. But again, we have Rhaegar paired with Lyanna making it pretty difficult at least from a time frame perspective for him to get with Ashara as well, especially due to war breaking out. For me Ashara being the mother of Young Griff without Rhaegar being the father is much more likely than Jon, or Dany being her child. Illyrio & Varys could just be pushing him towards the throne because he is the only candidate that matches in look and age, and once I&V have control of the throne..who knows what their true plan will be. Now I admit that it would be much more satisfying if Aegon was a blackfrye,which is why I am very much open to other ideas regarding Ashara...Quaithe? .
  14. Dany's origin is a bundle of confusion, contradictions, and mysteries. While the true intention of this post is not to call into question Dany's parentage, it is about unfolding the mystery of Ashara, while the two could be connected, I believe its too much of a long shot. I am leaning rather heavily towards the Targ twins theory. Rhaegar had not 1, but two secret children, and they were probably swapped. I believe Ned & Ashara felt they had an obligation to protect these children, whether or not they were actually theirs.
  15. Taking into account the lyrics and theme of the Bear and the maiden fair, I find further reason to believe that 1 of Ashara's dance partners had a romantic possibly sexual encounter with her, and that it led to love. We know Ashara is the maiden fair, but who is the silly ol' bear ? Remember in the song the Bear was reluctant at first.
