    Appropriate Punishment for Catelyn

    Robb was not a king. Executing one and letting one get away is not justice. It was poor leadership.

    Appropriate Punishment for Catelyn

    You have identified one of the important choices for a leader. Catelyn is guilty of treason. How Robb can kill Karstark and let mom get off lightly is proof of poor ruling. This theme is repeated again at the wall when Jon Snow kills Slynt and later lets a worse criminal off the blocks. The Starks are poor at handling situations when it gets personal. Robb and Jon stink as leaders.

    Did the Red Comet _____ ?

    Azor Ahai, who is Daenerys, just lost her Nissa Nissa. The fiery funeral was a burnt offering that called the red comet, the red “sword” of heroes. Indeed, it does slay the seasons. It will slay Winter|Stark|ice to bring light back to the world.
  4. Consider how they value courage and skill at arms. It’s a pretty bet that Samwell Tarly won’t make the cut. Honor and faithfulness to duty. Something Jon Snow is not. He’s not worthy even if he is part Dayne.
  5. As you say, IF. I don’t believe in R+L=J and will simply say Ned convinced people because it was the truth. The bastard is really his bastard.

    What happens if Euron sacks Oldtown?

    Euron is not a Superman. TheHightowers have the resources to fight him.

    What happens if Euron sacks Oldtown?

    The Hightower’s will put up a fight and might even win.
  8. What father doesn’t want to Mary off a daughter with expensive taste? Jorah was a stranger and did not know how much Lynesse loved to spend money. She had a reputation and no other man was happy to pick up the tab.

    A Bittersweet ending?

    George is not into happy endings. Count on many beloved characters to perish. A lot of regular folk will die to drive the point home. Nobles dying might not twist the heart of some people but a regular anyjoe suffering is something most will relate to. Someone asked what Penny’s purpose is. It could be this. Tyrion dying ain’t so bad but a girl whose been victimized deserve to live. Penny will get more sympathy. Same reason we feel bad for Jeyne. Her family had nothing to do with the war. She’s a regular girl caught up in the big picture. We wouldn’t feel as badly if it was Sansa.

    What made Ser Gerold Stay?

    Hightower always has been a loyal man to King Aerys Targaryen II. He would not disobey Aerys to follow a contradictory request from Rhaegar. And besides, Prince Viserys was already favored to inherit the kingdom.

    What made Ser Gerold Stay?

    Those three Kingsguard were loyal and remained loyal to Aerys Targaryen. Hightower was sent to force Rhaegar to fight. Think about it. The rebellion had already been fighting the royal forces for over a year and Rhaegar was not involved. Aerys sent his KG to hold Lyanna and force Rhaegar to fight. They would have taken her head if Aerys had ordered it.

    Targaryen-Baratheons - How fiery is the blood of the stag?

    Christs. Talk about minutiae. My dear Lord Varys. Only you could want to dissect this matter to such a degree. I hope you would not begrudge a fellow for going off the path of your trail, Lord Varys San. Fire And Blood taught us a lot. Dragons are kind of mild even if they vary in personality. They’re calm and predictable for beings of such power. A Stag is a testosterone fueled creature and is therefore more agitated. See how Robert was horny and unsuited for the quiet life. Stags act on instinct. You might have trouble domesticating a stag. That’s why geldings are made when it comes to horses. Dragons hunt but do not seem to have a lot of anxiety. To get to the point, a Stag will have a more volatile personality. It’s not a good mix.

    Is Walder Frey the smartest man in Westeros?

    I mostly agree. But will it satisfy Joff and the Lannister’s? Is Cat cool with Sansa marrying Tyrion.
