    Bowen Marsh's Plan

    He will need to organize the men. Convincing the wildlings to stay and defend the wall instead of running south to fight the Boltons is an impossible task. He will need to let them go and send a warning to the Boltons.
  2. We would have a King Viserys III ruling Westeros. He was favored by his father over his older brother. Not much would change for Rhaegar and Elia. They were already married and had children. Rhaegar would be just as happy playing his harp and writing music. Elia would raise her children in Dorne at the water gardens. Viserys would no doubt marry for political reasons. His children will be his heirs. Arrianne is of the right age. Viserys + Arrianne = the heirs to the throne. Daenerys would marry the son of a high lord. Willas Tyrell and Robb Stark would be good matches. It will be whoever Viserys chooses.

    Chaos of Conspiracy

    No, not a conspiracy. What you have there are men who are lost. Unemployed, lost, cynical men who seek something meaningful in their lives. The brotherhood is a caricature of Robin of Sherwood and his followers. These are aimless, leaderless men who look for guidance. Unfortunately, they found a leader in Lady Stoneheart and her brand of justice is corrupted.

    This what I'm hoping for.

    Why did Jorah push Dany to go to Asshai?

    I am not sure what else Jorah could be hiding. He gave disclosure and admitted his guilt. He was spying on Viserys and Daenerys in exchange for a pardon.

    Why did Jorah push Dany to go to Asshai?

    Imagine for a minute what life for those two would be like if they had gone to Asshai and sold one of the dragon eggs. They would be rich and she still has two of the eggs. Traveling in comfort is not a bad way to spend a life. This is a much better life than Ser Jorah could ever hope for after his crime in Westeros. And Daenerys, Daenerys has an adventurous side to her and she might enjoy visiting Asshai, Yi Ti, etc.

    What if Tywin joined Robert's Rebellion (properly)

    Tywin wouldn't be Tywin Lannister if he had sided with the rebellion at that early stage. TL is a shrewd man and committing that early would have been stupid.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    Ah, a voice of reason entered the room.

    most tragic character

    It's no contest. Jon Snow is the most tragic character and it is very much self-inflicted. Here he is a bastard given the chance to rise up in the Night's Watch. His Night's Watch brothers gave him an opportunity to rise that the Starks never would have. They treated him like an equal. He was given the chance to defend the realm. But he blew it when he could not maintain objectivity. He was so prejudiced against the enemies of the Starks that his decisions became so compromised. He killed a popular member of the watch for a minor offense. Then he lets the biggest criminal in the history of the order to go unpunished because he needed that person to commit an act of treason. It was treason alright, because Mance Rayder is still a member of the Night's Watch. It was treason committed by Jon to get his sister away from Ramsay Bolton. Even more tragic because the girl wasn't his sister. His actions threw the Night's Watch into chaos and left a good man like Bowen Marsh no choice but to kill him to avoid further damage to the order and the realm. Jon even lied to himself, saying he would not order any of his brothers to commit treason. He most surely did. He ordered Mance Rayder to bring his sister to him. As I said, Mance is a brother of the Night's Watch. Mance committed the violation of guest rights and probably on orders from Jon. The mess it will cause at the wall is something the watch doesn't need at this time.

    Why did Jorah push Dany to go to Asshai?

    He had secrets. Like he was spying on the Targaryens. He was too ashamed to let Dany find out. Jorah was looking for a comfortable lifestyle and you need a city for that. Better if that city is as far away from Westeros as possible.

    Reznak mo Reznak

    I would be interested to know the biographies of Skahaz and Reznak. We might get an insight into why they made the decisions to side with Queen Daenerys. Meereen was a stagnant city with little change in a thousand years. The Mo Kandaqs probably wanted a change.

    Biggest Mistake Made by Robb

    Robb acted selfishly and married the woman he loved. It's pretty straightforward. He placed his own interests above his concern for his allies. It's ok in war to betray the enemy but it is not ok to betray your allies. It was ok for Rickard Karstark to execute the Lannister lads. It's war. But it is stupidity for Robb to execute Karstark for killing the enemy. It was suicide for Robb. But the biggest mistake is breaking his oath to Walder Frey.

    The Others: Why Now?

    They were waiting for Night's King 2.0, which is Jon Snow. He's the leader that the Others have been waiting for. The man who would betray the watch for a woman (Arya).

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    I thought he was to remain a hostage for as long as Balon was alive. I don't think it was planned out very well. Robert and Ned didn't have an endgame in mind. They just took steps to ensure Balon's good behavior. They should have removed the Greyjoys from power. Sending Balon to the wall would do no good. Best idea, give him a one-way ticket to his drowned god. Robert's hand was somewhat tied here because how can he punish a rebel when he also rebelled. Robert's rebellion set forth a lot of bad precedents. It would have been better to leave Aerys in power. The rebellion destroyed the inviolability of Targaryen rule and created a bad example. It is for this reason that I find it hard to condemn Renly. If one king's rule can be violated, why not his brother's? It makes sense.
