    Dany's three betrayals

    The visions in the House of the Undying ties the lies, betrayals, rides, and executions together. I look forward to the traitors getting slow roasted.

    Creepiest part

    You mean the red comet? It is the herald of the rebirth of Azor Ahai. Daenerys was reborn on that day and woke the dragons from stone. The Doom was a cataclysm. The fourteen volcanoes erupting. One volcano can be bad enough. Numerous going off simultaneously is a disaster.

    Will Dany burn Essos on the way to Westeros?

    I doubt it. She is the main protagonists in this story. The hero. She is not going in that direction. The ones going on the evil path are the Starks. The ice is the antagonists in the story. It is what the living will have to fight to preserve life in the west. So anyway, back to the question. It is not necessary for Daenerys to act alone. Remember, she is already worshiped by the R'hllorians. The slaves will act on their own to win their own freedom. Mhysa is the catalyst and the inspiration for the slaves to believe they can do it. The numbers are on their side. They have the means. All they need is the will power.
  4. It was a remarkable achievement and brought a lot of benefit to the people. But three hundred years is a long time to maintain rule for that long of a period over those people. Culture was part of the problem but there are also the lords who wanted to be kings of the land back again.
  5. That was not the question. It is obvious to me that you are trying to change the question. The question already created a scenario in which Viserys already has sellswords. And I call bull$h!t on your claim that the Lannisters, Starks, will overpower any combination. That is just plain silly to say. Absurd. If that offends you, well, then you're offended. The question, as posted, did not place a limit on the size of the mercenary army. Essos is a much bigger landmass and there will be no shortage of able-bodied fighting men. The question implied a "what if" scenario. Had the question said, "Will the reach support Viserys if he had landed with 5K sellswords?" the answer will be different.
  6. The question, as presented, says Viserys will land with a sellsword army. Now, obviously, if he arrives with 50 sellswords, his campaign will end at the beach. But say he arrives with 100K sellswords. It's game over for the Baratheons, Lannisters, and Starks. The realm do not hate the Targaryens.
  7. That would depend on the size of the sellsword army. Say Viserys lands with enough sellswords to defeat Robert. Absolutely the Tyrells would support him. The Reach, Dorne, Balon Greyjoy, and many others. As a matter of fact, if Viserys had arrived with an overwhelming force, the Lannistes and the Baratheons would find themselves peeing their pants because they will be alone.

    Dany's three betrayals

    The prophecy of the Undying Ones as well as the fate of those who commits treason. Mirri, Eddard, Jon Snow, all who betrayed the ruler dies. The traitors are given to the flames and it pays for a needed miracle. I think you are wrong in your interpretation. That might be your wish but it is not likely to happen.
  9. Giving the Targaryen family's ancestral sword to a bastard.

    An Evil Name

    He's the last in a line of traitors. Lyanna betrayed Robert and her father. Robb betrayed Walder. Eddard betrayed Robert by keeping Cersei's secret.

    What are some significant differences between Robb and Jon?

    I find no meaningful difference between the two. Killed men (Karstark, Slynt) they shouldn't have, check. Betrayed friends and allies (Freys and Night's Watch), check. Started to spiral down, made really bad decisions (marrying Jeyne, sparing Mance Rayder, involving himself in the Boltons), check. Robb and Jon were awful leaders.

    Dany's three betrayals

    I disagree with the your second and third. The first was Mirri Maz Duur. No question there. The second was Jorah, he betrayed on behalf of the Lannisters for a ticket home. Lannisters = gold. The second is less sure, but only because Jorah has not been executed. The betrayals are tied to treason, but they also result in executions of the betrayer. So the fact that Jorah has not been executed leaves a little bit of room for the second betrayal to be something else. A smaller chance is Aegon usurping the throne, which is hers by right. He will get executed for this act of treason. One tiny, tiny possibility is Prince Viserys, her brother, committed treason by threatening the life of a Khaleesi and Rhaego because he was eager to start the fight for his crown. He got executed, as you already know. So the betrayers will all get executed, per the prophecy. Dany is efficient though and uses the executions to perform miracles. The third is possibly Jon, but be assured that she will execute the bastard for whatever treason he will commit. Jon will not survive this. It will be his third treason and will be his last. Dany will roast his ass and god only knows that will be hatched by that flame. Maybe the stone beast in the vision will come out of this sacrifice.

    Did Ramsay actually geld Theon?

    Ramsay took his bits little by little until all of it is gone. GRRM loves this idea of demasculanizing men. He shows examples for Theon to find a cause larger than himself to support. Look at the unsullied infantry. Their humanity was taken away by the masters. They won't get their twig and berries but they can help another accomplish her goal. They can stop feeling sorry for themselves and do something useful. They can help Daenerys win her war against slavery. It is a noble cause. The only war out there worth giving and taking life for. Theon can continue to put number #1 first or he can choose to become part of something big.

    The Red Wedding Was Justified.

    You don't know that. Take the Starks. Their hubris would at first make you think they keep their oaths. To break an oath is taboo. Oathbreaking is taboo everywhere in the kingdom. Yet, if we look back within a short slice of their history, the Starks have been breaking their oaths. Lyanna, Robb, Jon. All of them are oathbreakers. So if oaths are broken so is guest rights. Put a family in desperation and they will break guest rights. Jaime Lannister broke it when he pushed Bran from that tower.
