    Is Walder Frey the smartest man in Westeros?

    He's a smart businessman. The rw was the work of Lothar and Roose. Walder and Tywin approved the plan is all.

    What happened to the Targaryen slaves?

    We cannot say for sure if servants got paid in Westeros. How much were Old Nan's weekly wages from the Starks? The Targaryen servants had the same arrangement on the island.

    What happened to the Targaryen slaves?

    Aenar's slaves were taken to the Dragonstone island when he could have sold them for profit. Aenar sold his vast holdings before leaving the Freehold. The only reason I could think of for keeping his slaves is to save them from his daughter's prophecy. Valyria was going to burn. Aenar saved them from what was about to happen to the Valyrians. He tried to convince the other families to leave but they ignored his warnings. They thought he was nuts and laughed it off. We already know what happened at Dragonstone. He kept them employed in his new island home. They were the first small folk on the island and served the Targaryen family. The tradition of slavery went away when the Targaryens agreed to adapt to the ways of the Andals. At least the ways they could afford to give into. Keeping slaves would have met with raised concerns in Westeros. Those slaves became the small folk who populated the islands and paid taxes to the Targaryens. Aenar must have kept a few in the household to care for his family. Servant is not a bad job. Every lord and lady have their servants. It is much better than being a slave. Slavery ended before Aegon came along. Valyria's sin is slavery and the doom was their punishment. The prophecy from Daenys could have told the family to make it their purpose to end slavery. The Targaryens were preserved for a reason. They were the only ones who got the message to evacuate. It's their mission to stop slavery and set things to rights.

    How much does Mace Tyrell know about Loras?

    Children do what they want. How many teenagers get pregnant in the back of Fords every year. Mace can't do anything about it any more than the parents of the teens. He ignored it and hoped it's a passing phase.

    Is death good? Why fight the Others?

    Death comes for all and so the living should make the most of their limited time. Immortality would be fine if people weren't so motivated to reproduce. Some causes are worth dying for but golly life is precious. The lords of Westeros throw lives away as if they're nothing. The ones who triggered wars got punished badly. Tywin, Balon, Renly, Robert, Jon Arryn, Robb, and Catelyn. Something bad is coming for Roose, Walder, Cersei, Arya, and Arianne for their role in the war of the 5 kings and keeping the conflict going.

    Bowen's next decision

    1) His biggest problem is convincing the Boltons. The wildlings will freeze their balls off before they get to Winterfell. Don't give those fools any supplies. 2) Who says Jon and Ramsay haven't met. Jon also has the Stark look. Very long face. Craster recognized him for what he was. One of the Boltons is smart enough to see the family resemblance. It might go unnoticed with a fool like Ramsay but Roose will see. 3) A Wall that can't stop the Others is as useless as nipples on a breastplate. The builders wouldn't go through all of that trouble to build the Wall if it can't do its job. BM's best action is to keep the wildlings from riding off with his food supply.

    Messy story

    I would stop reading the books when I am convinced it has the same ending as the show.

    Strangest Possible Ending

    GM's short stories have bizarre endings. I mean the Stone City. Greywater Station. Honestly, this one can end up on the same level of weird. Conventional is not GM's style. The possible endings are limitless. An eastern migration is a sure bet in my opinion. The Others taking most of Westeros is also sure. I don't expect a democracy but the nobles will lose their power when the population migrates to the east. That opens the chance for some form of guaranteed rights to the people. The book will end while it's still winter. That means we won't know what the new westeros will be like.

    Messy story

    The show writers have been working really hard from season 7 on to promote Jon. Some will say it's fan service. It's bad story telling. I accept that the books and the show are not the same but good god they changed the characters. These are not the same characters dreamed up by Martin.

    Messy story

    The story is a mess. Last week's battle plan was too damn silly. Sansa, book and show, has always been annoying. The show is really feeding off of the many years of discussion on the forums. The story doesn't make sense anymore. It stopped making sense in season six. Thousands died in the battle for Winterfell. Now they're all of a sudden concerned about the people in King's Landing. The show lacks continuity. I don't even bother to rate the episodes anymore.
  13. It is hard to ever be sure of what will happen in the story but we can get a picture of how certain the fans are about these theories. First, the rules. Assign a percentage to each theory. A score of 100% means you are sure of this theory. It does not mean it is true, of course. It just means you, the person giving the answer, is sure of this theory. A zero means you do not believe it has a chance of being true. I want to know how strongly you believe the recent theories posted here. You may only assign the following percentages: 0% 25% 50% 75% 100% Theories Exodus theory says the people of Westeros will flee to Essos when winter comes. It doesn't say all of them. The theory as I understand it says the survivors will escape to Essos. Craster is a Stark says he is descended from a Stark. Rhaegar was disinherited by King Aerys. Daenerys will go to Asshai Quaithe is a Farman Lemore is Ashara Daenerys will sail east to get to Westeros Khal Drogo's soul is in Drogon Jon's soul is in Ghost Rhaego is still alive I posted a similar pole before.

    House of the Undying. The Three Mounts

    Jon broke the watch. The wildlings who where brought in to help defend the wall is now on the warpath against the Boltons. The watch is no longer whole. The wall has a crack.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    Big Walder is not. He's just very smart kid. What he does to get ahead is what the nobles do. Big Walder had empathy for the old goat farmer. He also seemed to show his distaste for his cousin is becoming. BW is that guy who takes no pleasure in killing but he will do it to keep himself safe. It was only a matter of time before Little Walder became murderous ala Ramsay. Big Walder can see this as a threat to his own safety. And offed LW.
