  1. Were you intentionally referencing Neil Gaiman's picture book The Wolves in the Walls with this thread title?
  2. This is a FreeKibble Cause I encountered the other day and want to support: Help Save Lucy - The Miracle Puppy! Lucy’s just 9 weeks old but she’s already endured a lifetime of challenges. She was rescued at 4 weeks old and in bad shape. Diagnosed with parasites, a blood transfusion saved her life. Then came parvo, which she survived. Now she has a disease in her front legs… and without surgery she won’t be able to walk soon. https://theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.com/store/ars/item/80574?origin=FK-CARES-80574-20171110&utm_medium=fk&utm_source=fkemail&utm_term=20171110&utm_campaign=fk-cares-lucy-the-miracle-puppy&utm_content=gtgm-link
  3. I don't think Daenerys is too obvious. It just seems that way because we've had so much time to analyze. A good plot twist can't be so un-obvious that it makes no sense. Besides, the fact that we're pretty sure it's Daenerys but Cersei barely knows Dany exists and focuses on the wrong targets is what creates dramatic irony; in the books, at least.
  4. No, it wasn't. I would know, since I was the one speaking.
  5. I doubt it, but the Tyrells would claim she was a maiden to the Lannisters either way. But back in realfact, it would have been silly of Renly not to get to producing an heir as soon as possible, starting on his wedding night. Being gay is no barrier; tons of gay men have fathered children to keep up appearances and/or continue their family line.
  6. She went to Cersei with information that let her set up his capture, which led to his execution. That said, I don't hate Sansa because it wouldn't be reasonable not to expect her to be that naïve back then.
  7. She looked him in the eyes while it was happening, which fulfills the spirit.
  8. Did I say that? It can't be *that* hard to estimate the force needed to decapitate someone if you're already a competent swordsman, the inevitable funny stories about those who got it wrong aside.
  9. Exactly. And I doubt most other Nothern ladies would have done it, either, or that anyone in their courts would have even briefly expected them to. They'd probably stare at the idea.
  10. Tywin meant Winterfell, through Tyrion's marriage to Sansa.
  11. He had handled a sword since childhood, though.
  12. The Dosh Khaleen experienced a vision of him conquering the world while Dany eat the horse heart.
  13. They're fighting for survival. Sorting out the Iron Throne can wait.
  14. No, it wouldn't. The people from the Vale already know and to the people from the North it would be so much wind, like his objection that he did it to save her life. I can't see a single person in that room caring if he had mentioned it.
  15. Bringing up that Sansa helped cover up Lysa's murder wouldn't have derailed anything. Lord Royce already knew that. It doesn't matter. Everyone knows she was in no position not to go along with Littlefinger at that point, and Lysa's murder was only the least of the charges. His getting Lysa to murder Jon Arryn, previous Lord of the Vale, was more damning.
  16. First. Their fathers were brothers. It hasn't been referred to on the show, in fact Joanna hasn't been named on the show, but the family tree that shipped with the Season 1 boxset and the online family tree both show it to be the case in-show, too.
  17. It seems several of the posters have an exaggerated idea of the odds of producing freakish offspring from incest in the real world. Even with siblings, it's not 100%, just higher than average. Aerys and Rhaella had several other children who didn't survive. Given that, Dany turning out normal is not unrealistic.
  18. One thing we can be almost certain of is that Rhaegar's ghost approves of the match.
  19. Jon has been raised with the taboo against incest, so I predict he'll struggle with it, but he also hasn't been raised around Dany or to think of her as a relative, and just knowing it intellectually is different from having a relationship with someone he's thought of as family his whole life, and he's already formed this affectionate partnership with her by the time they theoretically find out. So who knows.
  20. On the other hand, if he married her, having a Northerner as king consort to the Iron Throne might appease those who were fed up with Southern rule.
  21. Probably.
  22. At that point, Dany had just pledged to fight the White Walkers, so Jon didn't need to bend the knee and from her reaction she clearly hadn't expected him to. But it's not something wrong. The North has been part of the Seven Kingdoms for a long time, and I'd rather see them united than not. More stable for everyone.
  23. Or they did have a plan to get past, and the dragon was just an easy way to bring the whole Wall down.
  24. Sansa said Ghost is waiting for Jon. We should assume he's somewhere in Winterfell. If they don't show him when Jon returns next season, then it's time to be pissed.
  25. It may be obvious to *us*, but it's not to Cersei, who in the books at least is focusing on Margaery and will never see Dany coming.
