  1. I think this is possible. But there are few things against this theory. Not sure if Others are aware of Jon's existence. At best, they might be vaguely aware of such a person with fire and ice in his parentage. Jon was beyond the Wall for an extended period of time. If Others are aware of his whereabouts, they could have crushed him like a bug. Once the Wall comes down, and it will, Others will cause a widespread genocide in Westeros. They will not even keep a track of who died and who didn't. So not a good plan to kill one person they don't even know by name. Furthermore Jon is almost certainly dead at the end of ADWD, at least temporarily. That is not going to change whatever plans Others have for Westeros. Others were already active and killing in large numbers beyond the Wall even when there were plenty of Starks in Winterfell at the start of AGOT. Starks have been at war before and surrendered to Targs during Aegon's Conquest where they would have been eliminated if they had not bent the knee. If Robert's Rebellion had failed, fate of House Stark is an open ended question. Others were not active at that time, so it is not like they are watching over the Starks all this time. On the contrary, Others have become active when the House Stark was in a relatively stable and prosperous state during Robert's reign.
  2. Totally. Will be such a disappointment if HR has no involvement in revealing Jon's parentage.
  3. But they were nowhere near the same quality as the first three. For example, there was no crapfest like Dorne in first three seasons. Dorne is one of the most compelling plots in the books. Removal of key characters such as Arianne due to shortage of time led to Dorne becoming an unintentional joke on screen.
  4. I think Bran and Meera will reach Winterfell and there Meera's father will show up. He might do the big reveal to Bran who will in turn eventually inform Jon.
  5. It has to be season 7. He may not necessarily meet Jon in season 7 but him appearing in season 8 will be too little too late. Season 8 has only 6 episodes.
  6. GOt is not like the other shows. In fact, the situation is opposite. GOT is suffering from too much compression. Characters is being driven (read jetpack-ed) from one place to another due to lack of time. GRRM is writing the story in its entirety for good reasons. First three seasons were well received because there was minimal compression and they were faithful to the source material.
  7. 10 season of 13 episodes each, just like GRRM always wanted. Covering all POWs, if not every chapter.
  8. We have all been talking about a possible Lannister reunion, a Stark reunion. But what about a Reed reunion? Jojen is dead and so far his father has no way to know. He was heir to their house, of course. But that would be the least of their concerns in the present situation. They made it a point to show and mention Howland Reed by name during the ToJ flashback. That was from the fifth episode of last season, i.e. it was relatively recent. So it is safe to assume that he will show up this season. This would also help in revealing the leftover secrets regarding Jon's parentage and ToJ event. He might also reveal why he has remained hidden all this time. It can't be just to hide Jon's parentage. He could have showed up much earlier and still could have kept his mouth shut over these sensitive matters. Meera's teary-eyed reunion with her father would be a good scene and will help setup the somber tone leading up to the big reveal about Jon. Does this all seem plausible?
  9. Satin
  10. I asked GRRM if he is planning to release more sample chapters. He confirmed that he is not. This is actually a positive sign,
  11. Maybe highborn was not the right choice of word. Nobility might be more suitable. But you get the point. Is Jon secret nobility too? Is that too much of co incidence that he is the only acknowledged bastard?
  12. But Hotah is not a bastard either. Also, Mel may or may not be a highborn. We don't know her parentage for sure. Davos is not a bastard either and now technically he is from a noble house.
  13. Mel could be a trueborn too. We don't know for sure. She was almost certainly a slave but even an abandoned or orphaned highborn child could lang up in that situation. As for Tyrion, that would be interesting for sure.
  14. Is this a co-incidence that none of the POV characters, except for Jon, are bastards? In fact except for prologue POVs, all of the POVs are highborn. Jon is the only exception. So the question is, is he an exception to this rule? Davos was originally a lowborn. But even House Seaworth is now an official noble house in the Stormlands. None of the prologue POVs are bastards either. Varamyr was a wildling, so he can neither be a highborn, lowborn or a bastard. Those labels don't apply to freefolk. Will, Chett and Pate were lowborns but not explicitly stated as bastards. Jon is not a prologue POV. Every other POV like him is a highborn. So is he a highborn too? It would seem odd if only one POV character happens to be a bastard. R+L=J being the most plausible theory, would that mean that Rhaegar and Lyanna were married and Jon is a legit Targ?
  15. This is from a Tyrion chapter in ASOS, This is an unsubtle foreshadowing for unmasking of Robert Strong, probably at the hands of the Hound. Removing the helm of Strong in public will be a big deal because it will not only mean Strong will lose his standing as a Kingsguard or even a person, but it will also expose Cersei's lack of integrity as a queen mother. If Cleganebown does happen, it will probably mean Hound will die but will bring the truth about Strong out in the open. After that Strong's fate is anyone guess, maybe even that he is set on fire or wildfire, or destroyed by a bunch of soldiers.
