  1. I can't link to it from my phone but Emilia gave an interview where she talked about her dead dragon being named after her dead brother. So it is V that died.
  2. That's not the actual book cover. It's fan art. The Blackwater Rush is described as "deep and swift" with "wicked and treacherous" currents. So it's not implausible that Jaime and Bronn fell into a deep part of the river and the treacherous current carries them downstream somewhere.
  3. But I was responding to the claim that Jon calling himself Aemon the Dragonknight is foreshadowing for him LITERALLY being Aemon Targaryen. I was merely pointing out that he must also be Ryam Redwyne too, and Robb is Florian.
  4. He also says he's Ser Ryam Redwyne, and Robb calls himself the Young Dragon and Florian the Fool, which is also what Ser Dontos calls himself when he's scheming to smuggle Sansa out of KL. The upshot being, you can't cherrypick the bits that fit a pet theory and call them foreshadowing while ignoring all the others.
  5. I don't understand the point of spreading about a false story that Brandon threatened the Prince. Why is Jaime told a lie? Does Aerys think that's going to justify his subsequent torture and murder of the Starks? If you're going to burn someone alive in their armour while choking his son to death, you're obviously not playing by the rules so it's not really important to have a backup story. If Aerys was going to try to justify his horrific method of execution, he's going to blame Brandon for a much more treasonous act than what he's accused of. And why wouldn't Brandon go to KL instead of Dragonstone? He doesn't know where Rhaegar is, but the last place I'd expect a man to take the girl he abducted is back to the home he shares with his wife and children. And logistically, it's a lot easier to go to KL and find out where they are (if they're not hiding inside Maegor's) than it is to get a boat to take them to Dragonstone only to discover they were never there, and then kick himself for not stopping at the Red Keep first.
  6. I was replying to a claim that Lyanna wasn't described as being beautiful in the books, which she obviously was. Not sure whether you're trying to tell me I'm wrong? Quotes directly from the books don't lie.
  7. I was on board with Jaeherys being the name, but on a recent re-watch I saw Aegon. Maybe it's my new TV but now I'm Team Aegon - not because I particularly like it as his name, but I really think that's what she's saying.
  8. There's a thread for little questions (called "Little Questions") which might be a better place for all your little questions, rather than starting a new thread every time you want to ask a... little question.
  9. I don't think the Riverlands are as gung ho about the king as the northerners. They may not follow Jon as King in the North the way they did half-Tully Robb, but that's not to say they wouldn't remain allies or even a vassal territory, at least until the war was over. The scene where Robb was named King in the North doesn't say that the Riverlanders named him King of the Trident. It just says they drew their blades and bent their knees and shouted the old words "the King in the North" along with everyone else.
  10. True, which would be odd for the bastard of a Stark daughter, unless they sent her away to have the baby and afterwards brought it to live somewhere near Winterfell. But then it would be strange to have Nan become a servant in the household and nurse her potential siblings/cousins/nephews. It just seems odd that we are told specifically that she has brown hair. She could have been described any other way, without even mentioning hair colour. Or like I said, make her a blonde or a redhead or anything but Stark-brown.
  11. Maybe Nan is the result of the skinny girl and Duncan hooking up? I'd need to look at dates.
  12. No, I agree, the brown hair makes her sound like a Stark. If it was Old Nan she could have had any colour hair - blonde, redhead, black, silver with gold streaks - because she's old now, and what little hair she has is white. Why give her brown hair if she's just Young Nan? Which of course leads to the question of "is Old Nan a secret Stark?" which, please no.
  13. The evidence that Robb named Cat his heir is that Robb doesn't care about his bloodline, and the evidence for Robb not caring about his bloodline is partly because he named Cat his heir. For which there is no evidence, only a belief that Robb doesn't care about bloodlines, because he named Cat his heir. I'm getting dizzy. Funnily enough, this is the only part that does have evidence. That would be the words on the page, coming out of Robb's mouth: I feel like I'm in an episode of Twilight Zone.
  14. Lyanna was jousting as the Knight of the Laughing Tree with a lance, not fighting with swords, so those sounds wouldn't remind him of her at all. Unless it was when she beat up the squires, but that was just her and a tourney sword, not an actual sword fight. If it's bringing back a specific memory for Ned it's more likely to be the ToJ, or just battle sounds in general.
  15. Ned's thoughts when he takes Robert down into the Winterfell crypts: Ned to Robert: Kevan Lannister: Ned tells Arya she looks like Lyanna:
