  1. Moat Cailin is not an effective barrier against dragons. The North is not valuable and the only people who harass them are the Ironborn and the Wildlings.
  2. Summer will End. So yes, Summer will die. It is the symbolic end to summer and the arrival of winter. The deaths of the direwolves indicates the passing of an important event. The death of Lady exposed the hubris and hypocrisy of the Starks. Greywind, the grey morality of Robb Stark and the fall of his house. Summer's death will sever Bran's connection to warmth and bring winter.
  3. Aurane follows the history of his family who are now closet Targaryen loyalists. He could present himself as a suitor to Dany and offer the fleet in exchange.
  4. Such a fight will not be in the form of a physical duel because Sansa is not at all brave enough for that. I believe there will be a conflict between the Starks that will lead to the death of one or two of them. Sansa will surely be on one side. She is ambitious but lack the intelligence and the courage to acquire anything for herself. But she will be used by Littlefinger and Harry to further their own ambitions. Ambitions which may include control of the North. Sansa will side with anyone who can give her the status she thinks she is deserving of.
  5. Cannibals. People eaters. Primitive people living in isolation. Take the North and bring their development back a hundred years and that is Skagos. They are what the North was.
  6. Some Starks are not going to have the look. The long face, long chin look is not present in every person who has Stark blood. The relevance is the historical connection to the Night's King. Craster, the Starks, and Night's King are from the same family.
  7. Arya has already started murdering for revenge. She's crazy though. Jon was thinking of Arya and revenge during his last breaths of life. They are not going to contribute anything good.
  8. Starfall is in a prime location. Location is everything in real estate. Warm weather and lovely views. Starfall is for me. My second choice are The Twins.
  9. They are the ones most likely to bring him back from death and not Mellissandre.
  10. You just have to be the right person. Like in the legend of King Arthur pulling the sword from the stone. Daenerys does everything in 3s and pulled three dragons out of the stone.
  11. Aegon is not on solid ground, but he will be able to fool few people at the beginning. Daenerys will put forth her claim and reveal Aegon to be a fraud. That will be the end of Aegon's very short reign. Daenerys will have the dragons and the experience to support her claim to Westeros. In the end, she will be a better ruler than Aegon, Jon Snow, or Stannis could ever hope to become.
  12. Varys was talking about a specific scenario. There is such a thing as might and real power. Varys was talking about three equal contenders trying to convince a man with no principles. It is rarely the way of it. The stronger contender for power usually wins because they have assets which give them the means to take what they want by force.
  13. Jon has done a lot of harm and damage to the Night's Watch. We will see the negative effects of his actions. Aliser and Bowen will try to mend what Jon broke but it might be too late.
  14. The ocean on the west side of Westeros is mostly unexplored. The Farwynds' islands are the farthest known landmass to the west. Quaithe tells Dany to sail westwards instead of taking a more direct route to Westeros. If Quaithe is Elissa Farman and she has been to the far western ocean, what did she find and why is it important for Dany to see for herself?
  15. SMK and his brazen soldiers proved their loyalty. RMR is an unknown card in the deck.
  16. The weirwoods were tended by murderous savages who bled people for the trees. They were murdering people and offering the blood to the trees. The number of trees would naturally decrease as the number of savages decreased. Fewer gardeners, fewer trees.
  17. Revenge will not undo the past. The dead will stay dead. Arya doesn't know what justice is because she has lost her mind. What she does now is murder and nothing more than that.
  18. Jon will indeed be the Night King and Arya will be his Nights Queen. I am not sure what else he needs to accomplish that besides what he already has, warging and skinchanging. An ice wight with his mind residing in a direwolf can and will lead the wights. It is the choice to use that power to serve an evil cause, avenging the Starks and rescuing FArya, that will push Jon to the darkness.
  19. Our favorite leading lady and her three dragons will go to Westeros after the people beg for her help in stopping the wights. Daenerys will bring the light back to Westeros. It will be years before that happens though. The Starks and their icey pals will dominate the north and parts of the south while darkness blocks the sun. Bran will cover Westeros in darkness. Daenerys will break that darkness to bring back the light and migrate people to repopulate the land.
  20. The War Of The Five Kings is still going on. It's not like it is peace time at the moment. All hell will break loose in the north when Jon Snow Wight leads his army of wights against the Boltons. Euron is causing problems in the coastal areas to the south. Aegon the Blackfyre is preparing for war. So when you say that a restoration of the ruling family threatens new war, one has to ask, what else is new. After all, those fellows above are already in war mode. What will restore long-term peace to Westeros is many years away. Jaime would use Wildfire to save his family. Of that, there is no doubt. This is the same gentleman who pushed Bran through the window. The knight who stabbed his own king in the back. Jaime would do it to save Cersei and Tommen. He wouldn't do it to serve a greater good.
  21. The ritualistic drowning should not be taken literally. It's a dip in seawater. The Catholic religion has many rituals that are symbolic. The ironborn are the same with their religion. The ironborn are not immortal. They die as well as other people. Asha will become the leader of her people because she is a Greyjoy. The captains will elect her to lead their people.
  22. The tree grows slowly. Plant today and your great-grandchildren may benefit from the lumber. Might as well ask why people don't invest today for the welfare of their great-grandchildren. People simply do not plan that long. The tree is also very costly to fertilize because it is nurtured by human blood. The average person will consider it folly to kill people for fertilizer. Only the very serious (or the very evil) Old God supporters would commit to the murder of hundreds to nourish a single tree.
  23. Edric Storm is a Baratheon bastard. I would assume the lad is loyal to his father and would not bow to another. He would put forth his claim if Stannis is dead. But it could be interesting if Edric and Gendry were to fight each other for the lordship of Storm's End. Say Gendry gathers followers and battles with Edric to the bitter end. The one left standing will be given Storm's End by the Targaryen monarch.
  24. Theon will be a player in the civil war on the Iron islands. The Ironborn will again choose a leader and somebody will contest Euron's right.
