  1. 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.
  2. It looks like one of the ravens has white eyes, and the next shot is Bran with white warg eyes, so I think the Night King looks up and sees the ravens flying over and maybe even senses that Bran is watching him. And I think it's Davos standing next to him in the Winterfell godswood, although it might be the ghost of the 3ER.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Maybe Nan is the result of the skinny girl and Duncan hooking up? I'd need to look at dates.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Ned's thoughts when he takes Robert down into the Winterfell crypts: Ned to Robert: Kevan Lannister: Ned tells Arya she looks like Lyanna:
  12. How much more articulate do you want?
  13. Another misconception is that people say she "turned to" Stark when the text says "looked to", which are not the same thing. "Turned to" implies for help or comfort, whereas "looked to" has a wider meaning, in that she also could have looked to Stark for sex/romance (which is what Barry was lamenting as he ruminates on not winning the tourney and crowning Ashara QOLAB himself). If Barry had said "might she have turned to me instead of Stark?" it would take on a different meaning entirely, for both him and Ashara (and "Stark"). Re Lyanna being "Stark" - if Barristan had won the tourney and crowned Ashara Queen of Love and Beauty, might she have looked to him instead of Lyanna? Doesn't make sense. Why would Barristan not winning preclude him from being Ashara's confidant? Somehow giving her the rose crown would have made him worthy of hearing all about her being "dishonoured" - not buying it.
  14. He's barely alive, and seems bloodless and desiccated. Maybe he's using "quick" to mean when blood pumped through his veins and he lived and breathed in the world. He's become the tree, which is probably what's keeping him "alive".
  15. I agree that it reads that way, the double wedding took place after the Battle of the Bells because Jon Arryn was without an heir. But it's possible that he decided to hastily marry even before his last heir died, because he was fast running out of them. I'll admit it's unlikely though, and it certainly doesn't mean the wedding took place any earlier.
