  1. To a certain extent, I think they are influencing current events. As you say, Bloodraven is clearly still alive, and he might have an interest in seeing a red dragon on the throne, or not, but hee is clearly manipulating many events. And I also like Shiera Seastar as Quaithe. That leaves Daemon and Aegor. I do not believe that either is alive, but I suspect that our wee Aegon is a descendant of Aegor and Daemon’s daughter Calla.

  2. You might find these old threads of interest... http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/107265-were-khal-drogo-and-and-his-unborn-son-offerings-for-the-great-shepherd/ http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/115959-the-power-of-beric-and-catelyn-comes-from-the-old-gods-not-the-lord-of-light-and-jaime-will-be-next/ http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/94042-did-davos-actually-drown-after-the-battle-of-the-blackwater/ Or not.
  3. I was out and about the other day, and I kid you not, I heard a father call his little boy Ramsay. I felt very sorry for the boy.
  4. I have some ideas here... http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/145020-lyra-and-jory-are-with-our-mother-and-the-great-northern-conspiracy/
  5. Illyrio, Daemon Blackfyre's heir, for blood, Tyrion and/or Brown Ben for all the gold of Casterly Rock, and Aegon, who is actually Illyrio's son, for love of Arianne. The George loves betrayal. From Petyr betraying The Ned to the Ides of Marsh. In The House of the Undying Ones, we were told that Daenerys would know three treasons, so these three treasons better be pretty big. My guess is they will happen at once or in rapid succession, Illyrio for blood, Tyrion for gold, and Aegon for love, but whatever they are, they need to be real game changers.
  6. There is considerable debate about whether Cersei was behind it, but the foreshadowing is a nice catch, and it at least supports the argument in favor of Cersei.
  7. When Jon allows Tormund's band to pass the Wall, one man surrenders a shirt of silver scales, which made me think of the armor Bilbo gave to Frodo. The next item surrendered is a broken surrenders word with three sapphires in its hilt, so I looked up descriptions of Narsil, but I didn't see any sapphires. On the other hand, I did see old threads positing that the sword was the sword wielded by Waymar in the Prologue to Game. That sword had three jewels in its hilt.
  8. I like the way you lay out three options. But I would say 1 is the most likely. IIRC, Jaime is referred to similarly earlier in the saga.
  9. That was in Stormlands.
  10. I don't think Doran intends to back a claim by Gerold, assuming Gerold has a potential claim.
  11. I could buy a day or two.
  12. Euron sent three cages of ravens with Kerwin, so Victarion could send word of his voyage, but how could a raven fly for days across the open sea?
  13. There have been a bunch of offbeat theories about the Dusky Woman and also a few as to Illyn Payne (my favorite is that Euron is warging Victarion's sex slave, er... excuse me, thrall), but I think it most likely that the author is simply using both of them simply to develop Victarion Greyjoy and Jaime Lannister.
