    Last One Standing

    Anyone can die but Bran has the best chances.
  2. Being an optimist, I believe there is usually a way to end an argument without the shedding of blood. But then the question becomes, who will give up. Who will roll over and take it up the arse for peace? The better option is to handle it with as little bloodshed as possible and with little collateral damage that could impact the dragons and the innocents. Rhaenyra had the Velaryon fortunes are her disposal and dragon eggs to spare. Why not hire the Faceless Men or the Sorrowful Men to strategically kill off the Hightowers. That is what I would have done.
  3. Rhaenyra is a much better person than Cersei. She actually had a right to the throne, unlike Cersei. Daemon = Oberyn. I can see this. Daemon is a good leader of men whereas Oberyn is more of a lone operator.

    Top 5. Who will die in The Winds of Winter

    Anybody can die but if I have to make this prediction, yeah, these. Euron will be killed by the Damphair's followers. A godless man can't have the Sea Stone chair after all. Khal Jhaqo will die screaming for what he did to Eroeh. Skahaz, killed by Hizdahr's kin within the walls of Meereen. Wayman Manderly, his crimes of cannibalism will not go unpunished. Jaime, because it's only in comfort fiction fairy tales where every bad guy gets to earn redemption.
  5. No. Just no. Rhaenys marrying a bastard is out of the question. That's more than a scandal to suggest such a thing.

    Worst Targaryen King

    That's right. Sometimes people unjustly condemn the person who had to dirty his hands in order for the next generation to have a chance to use their genteel ways. Maegor did what he had to do. The Faith was sticking its nose where it never should have been. Maegor's brutality was justified. Religion needed to be brought to heel. He should have killed more of the Faith. The ones going to the wall should have suffered a misfortune on the way there.
  7. Obviously they accepted Craster's sacrifice. Craster must be honoring some part of the pact. His Stark blood made his boys important to the Others. Perhaps it's the skinchanging powers the Others covet. This generation of Starks are all skin changers and maybe the Others would dearly love to have them sacrificed.

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    Yup. Jon's been destructive to the Watch so far. Sending Mance and his wildling women to get fArya brought the wrath of the Boltons down on the Watch. Jon might become one of the protagonists later on but he is absolutely not the True Protagonist. I believe the distinction of True Protagonist belongs to Daenerys Targaryen. Like I said, it doesn't mean Jon won't see the light later and gain a little bit of honor later on but so far he has not been a protagonist. He doesn't intend to be the antagonist but his general poor judgment and his queer attachment to Arya make his decisions harmful to the fight against the Others. He has a history of putting the Starks ahead of his duties. Jon is not who we want as a leader.

    Kraznys mo Naklos - Charming Villain

    And to think Penny and Tyrion almost became a folly.

    What was wrong with Maegor’s private’s?

    You mean the black brides. I don't know. Two Usual Suspects stand out to me. He's got a low sperm count. Basically shoots blanks most of the time. One little swimmer got through one time. His maesters were poisoning the fetus. I suspect foul play from the maesters.

    Does GRRM hate heroism or avoid it? (Jon and Quentyn comparison)

    Maybe he does. What George does is to keep the boat rocking. Very little is certain. Each new volume just adds to the uncertainty and while clues are given, confirmation are not. That's how I feel about this latest volume, Fire and Blood. So it goes with heroes and heroism. His heroes are not clean-cut Harry Potter types. Their actions will always be open to question.
  13. Eddard was high on painkillers when we get his hallucinations of the fight at the tower. A lot of what we know, or think we know, are not reliable. For example, it is possible Ashara did not kill herself. Lyanna did. She slit her wrist rather than go back to Robert. That would explain the bed of blood. It was Lyanna who took her own life. Ashara is alive and hiding somewhere. I believe Lyanna is the mother of Jon Snow. But it doesn't have to mean it was Jon who was born at the tower. Maybe nobody was born at the tower. Leuwin observed that bastards grow up faster than other boys. He's a smart man and suspected Jon is older than Eddard is claiming. He had to come up with an excuse to explain why Jon is farther along than Robb. Jon was born before the tower of joy to Lyanna and some yet unknown father. Probably Brandon himself. The horny man lost his cool and slept with his sister.
  14. Eddard was probably referring to violence in general that were committed against children. I don't think Eddard approved of the Lannisters killing off the Tarbecks and the Reynes. Likely, he probably did not approve of the killing of the entire Darklyn family. But taking a side like that also puts him in a position of hypocrisy because his side of the war also killed innocent children. Rhaegar's family was innocent. The children of the Goodbrookes were innocent. The children of the village that Hoster Tully destroyed were innocent. Let's not say one side had the moral upper hand over the other. That's the problem with Robert's reign. So if they plotted against the Targaryens on the platform that they want to protect the innocent, let's just say they ended up becoming failures. Robert not only tolerated the murder of Rhaegar's family but he forgave the perpetrator. The murderer of an entire village, Hoster Tully, got away with it.
  15. Good Morning Ran. The major problem with the way Jon handled the situation is not only the manner of the punishment. It is the fact that he allowed another man who without any doubt is guilty of more offenses than the man that he killed. The execution of Slynt is very harsh and not the appropriate choice in my opinion. But where justice when off the tracks is when Jon let Mance Rayder off the blocks because of (1) how he felt about the man, he liked Mance Rayder; (2) remembering how Mance Rayder can get in and out of Winterfell, needed him to help get his sister away from Ramsay. Jon committed a great injustice because of his different treatment of two men who committed an offense against the watch. He let the most guilty of them all walk away from any kind of punishment for his own personal benefit. That is very, very wrong.
