  1. Jon was born a bastard and remains a bastard.

    While i don't believe that Jon will ever be king of Westeros (unless the situation requires it), he will not remain a bastard till the end. GRRM loves a underdog story, and while he prides himself with crushing the hopes and dreams of fans, if you look at the true underdogs (main characters in the series) they are all doing quite well for themselves, and are close to getting what they always dreamt off. Jon could easily end up as a Stark, because of two reasons: either the Northern lords won't care ( highly possible) that he is a bastard, and name him one either way, Dany or Stannis is going to legitimise him in the end, because the situation will require for it. Rules are meant to be broken, and it simply won't matter that technically he is not eligible to become a Stark/ Targaryan.
  2. Northern lord taking a Wildling wife

    It all depends how hot she is, now this may sound very shallow but its exactly why it would work. The Lord that would get himself a wilding wife, a hot one, would be able to present her as : the wild beauty that he tamed...sounds exactly like the sort of reasoning that would work on the middle age mentality that you have in Westeros.
  3. Confirmed, The God Emperor of man from Warhammer is Bloodraven.
  4. Because even the KN runs out of mana. See my post above. Petrol would keep it burning even in shitty conditions. A trained army, not a peasant army.
  5. Is it evil when Bran wargs into Hodor's mind?

    I find it offensive that i have to read all this mean comments directed at Bran. Am i doing this right? Am i pc enough?
  6. Well last season we have seen the Boltons use shield wall tactics, coupled with spears and that's a good start. We know from Robert's rebellion that siege weapons like scorpions and trebuchet exists. The human side could use a very basic roman tactic to defeat huge piles of undead: flaming war pigs. Use trebuchet to throw oil at them, use the pigs to set them on fire. The advantage of the pig vs a boulder on fire is that the pigs move/make sounds and can cause chaos inside the undead ranks. The WW would have to at least try and focus on them, and not risk their armies set ablaze. A disciplined 100k human army, could very well obliterate the wights with relative ease if they anticipate were the Others are going to strike. Problem is they are probably going to be taken by surprise, and they won't organise very well against them. Then there's the fact that the Others can do magic, especially storm like magic...if they can conjure up tornados...Westerosi are pretty much fucked bar dragons.
  7. It most likely have no impact, besides guarantee GRRM's bitter sweet ending. Bran will probably know who Jon's real parents are, but he will somehow fail to deliver that news to Jon. But i dunno, unless Jon dies he still has a pretty sweet deal going on with him being named KITN...not as good as King of Westeros, but Jon hardly cares about titles anyway.
  8. Why the ToJ showdown ever happened?

    The more i think about it, the more i suspect Varys is at fault for this showdown. He has a vast spy network, he can spread false rumours like no other right? Well you're Arthur Dayne, you receive word that uncle creepy is coming for his sisters baby...u have to fight him at this point, it makes total sense.
  9. Hooded Man of WF is 10000% Theon

    So the HM in Winterfell is 100 Theons. So this means that Ramsey invented cloning, and it all went horribly wrong.
  10. This has probably been discussed at some point, but general consensus that i see is that Roose only betrayed Robb after he started making imbecile decisions like: beheading Karstark and not marrying the Frey girl. So for this theory to work, we are going to make one assumption: that Roose is a capable commander. There's no real hard evidence that he is up there with the best of the best, but there isn't evidence that he is a bad commander either. First battle of the war that involves the Northern houses is the Battle on the Greek Fork. Here a capable commander would not have rushed with his small batch of men the vastly superior in numbers Lannister army. A capable commander would have taken advantage of the terrain, by going upriver and holding the higher ground. The Lannister could have still won if they attacked Roose in this position, but would have lost an immense deal of their own men. Knowing Tywin is a smart and cautious man, he would not have taken the bait, and would instead go for Harrenhall. But this would extend his army, possibly outspent their supplies, and the most important thing? Get trapped between two Northern armies, because Robb could have followed up shortly. Instead Roose, choose to reveal his position to Tywin, attack the larger army and loose a lot of Stark loyalist in the process. So my bottom line is, that Roose was planning to betray Robb from the get go, the Bolton - Frey - Lannister alliance that happened later on, was just luck on his side to further aid his plan.
  11. Why did Roose never remarried?

    The whole thing about Ramsey is inconsistent to say the least. I like what GRRM did with Ramsey - Theon relationship, but it makes zero sense that Ramsey is still alive after he obviously killed Roose's son. Roose has no use for Ramsey, he does however need a son with his name. Now if Ramsey didn't kill his son, thus obviously posing a threat to Roose himself as well (ending his line), i can see him keeping Ramsey alive as a back up plan if he doesn't get another son in the mean time. Killing Ramsey would not matter in the eyes of nobody, he could do it publicly and invoke whatever reason he wanted, nobody would be revolted over it. As for Roose marrying into the Stark family, that would never happen given the bad blood between houses. Don't even wanna get into how "inconsistent" with the Stark kings of old was to leave House Bolton alive.
  12. The 3 Smartest Characters, In Order, Are...

    While i agree that the book offers more insight to the way Jon thinks, how is he a fool in the show? Let's re-cap: - He was clever enough to deceive Mance, and everybody beyond the wall that he is on their side. - He was strong enough to sacrifice love for duty. Read duty as in sacrificing his love, to save a lot of people. - He was smart enough to get the willdlings to not only commit to fighting the WW, but also to fight in the Battle of the Bastards on his side. - His only real mistake was not executing/ exiling Throne when he was chosen as Lord Commander. I'm really curios, what do you think show Jon did to categorise him as a fool.
  13. Does fAegon annoy anyone else?

    Honestly f(Aegon) is not as bad as Lady StoneHart, now that's one absolutely pointless character. But more on point, you need not worry about things dragging out. People love to think that this will be a second dance of dragons, this will just be another Blackfyre rebellion, it will start strong then fall apart really fast. I suspect by the end of 1/2 of the next book, they will be squashed.
  14. Questions about Manderlys move to the North

    I like this theory a lot, its such a shame we know so little about the Stark Kings, especially since from the little bits we know they had a very different mentality from the current generation.
  15. Where does Danny land?

    Dragonstone makes absolutely zero sense. She has a extremely large army with tons of horses that need to be feed on top of the people in her army as well. They won't be able to make camp there, never mind the food aspect of it, the island will simply be to small for everybody to debark on.
