    The execution of Janos Slynt was personal and it was not justice.

    They are completely different things. Jon's desertion is punishable by death. That fact was established when Ned took off Gared's head. Insubordination like Slynt's is not necessarily punishable by death. Jon acted very inappropriately because he treated Slynt and Rayder differently. The second man was a far bigger criminal than the first and yet Jon allowed Rayder to get out of punishment because of his personal feelings for him and because he needed him to run an illegal errand. Jon is corrupt because he can't be impartial.

    A man's life is at stake. A fellow brother of the watch. He gave in and begged for mercy. It was not too late. It was Jon wanting to get his revenge.

    Danys the good guy?

    Westeros belongs to Dany as much, if not more so, than Winterfell belongs to the Starks. Winterfell is within the boundaries of Westeros, so technicall Winterfell also belongs to her. Viserys was crowned on Dragonstone by Queen Rhaella. Rhaegar was disinherited by his father, King Aerys II. The crown and the right to rule the kingdom passed to Viserys and then to Daenerys.

    It's not so much poor writing. It's biased writing.

    And you think retaking Winterfell will not result in carnage! Mordred is right on this. Daenerys has as much if not more rights to Westeros as the Starks have to Winterfell. Let's make a deal. The Starks will forget about Winterfell and the North. They will make do with what they have now and don't present any claims to Winterfell and the North. In return, Daenerys will stay in Essos and forget about her claim to Westeros. That is more than fair.

    Actually, Slynt did change his mind and asked for mercy. Jon denied that mercy and killed him anyway even after Slynt agreed to go.

    Nine pages and counting. Just everything that could be said on both sides of this debate has been written but I want to point out a few things that I am sure got lost somewhere in all of the thesis. You don't have to like Janos Slynt to see that he didn't get any justice. You can also recognize Jon's motivations and still disagree with Jon. At least we can because we're in no danger of getting our heads taken off for crossing him, right. Jon projected his hate for the Lannisters on Janos Slynt. Which is unfortunate because Slynt only acted on false information. He was a victim of false information. Ned admitted to treason. He was guilty as far as Janos, Joffrey, Payne knew. Ned was executed for a crime that he admitted to. Yes, Janos betrayed him but remember, Ned also wanted to bribe Slynt to turn him against the Lannisters. Ned didn't want to dishonor himself so he had LF do the bribing for him. Jon should not have that big of a beef with Janos. Micah, the son of a butcher was killed by a hound. Janos, the son of a butcher was killed by a direwolf. Two butchers' boys killed by dogs. Maybe it's the ghost of those cows getting their revenge on the butcher.

    Why was neither Viserys nor Daenerys trained in arms?

    That was his biggest flaw. He does't take the time to understand. He was prejudiced.

    Aerys was scared for his heir. This. They had to save their pennies for things like food. A sword is no good without food.

    Justin Massey

    Can you really blame Massey for changing sides? I mean, he will know of the pink letter and he will hear of Stannis' defeat. It takes a truly dedicated man to pin his hopes on a greyscale infected girl. Taking sellswords across the oceans to avenge a fallen Stanis and then install his daughter, who has greyscale, on the throne is not a rational mission.

    Did the BWB doubt Joffery's legitimacy prior to LSH?

    They are without banners now and it means they do not answer to any authority except theirs. They protect the small folk, yes. But they carry out justice as they see fit. Vigilantes and extortionists are what they are. They killed the Freys even after the ransom was paid. They are nothing more than road bandits and criminals.

    The role of Jon Snow in TWoW

    And you are right. I am just expressing an opinion. A lot of effort went into the rules of skin changing for a reason. I am certain of it. He will live a second life as a wolf.

    Poll on Greyscale

    Jon Con and Shireen are the carriers of the disease. It's going to be merciless. Many people will catch the disease. Marwyn may know the cure but he's headed out of town. Sarella and Samwell might work together to find a cure. There has to be sand snake with interests outside of killing.

    He could reject the offer and stay in the north.
