    Sansa's betrayal consequences partly overestimated?

    It matters little whether the consequences were overstated or they were not. Those chapters gave us a window into what Sansa is made of. She is a selfish person who always puts her own interests above others. That's like Cersei and Lyanna. She is not the material from which heroes are made.
  2. They should feel similar to you because they were raised around the same people. They share the same Stark temperament. Which is to say, nasty. Both of them are young men with a lot of hubris who have no idea how weak they were. They were the wrong men to put into the positions they were in.

    What happened to the Targaryen slaves?

    Lord Aenar was a good man. He made an effort to warn the other families to leave the peninsula. They chose to ignore his warnings and perished. A man like that would do what is best for his household slaves. They may not really be slaves at all but servants.

    What happened to the Targaryen slaves?

    Lord Aenar and his daughter probably gave them a choice. They followed because they had faith in her prophecy and the Targaryens were trustworthy.

    Bowen's next decision

    What needs to get accomplished within a short time: Bring the Night's Watch to order. Calm the feud between the Night's Watch and the House of Bolton. Get the Wildlings under control. Prepare for the Others. #4 is not going to happen unless 1-3 have been addressed. The brothers of the watch are not going to be a problem. The watch will regroup quickly. Bowen can't stop the Wildlings from going to war with the Boltons but he can send a raven to Winterfell with a warning. The Wildlings are too wild to get in control. Bowen doesn't have enough men to force them to stay and guard the wall. The only way he can calm the feud is send proof of Jon's death to the Boltons and tell the truth. It was all Jon's doing. He can send Jon's head to Ramsay. But I don't know if the two bastards have met. How would Ramsay know Jon's head? How about sending Ghost's head with Jon's head. That's strong proof it's Jon. Is that enough? I think so.

    What if Drogo gave the eggs to Dany instad of Illyrio

    Dany is my favorite person to discuss. Let's do this. I don't know why George would create a situation where a Dothraki Horselord would know the significance of dragon eggs. The Dothraki are a horse people. Drogo had no desire to conquer the world. They don't even want to leave the Dothraki Sea. Dany was supposed to find those eggs in the plains of Essos. The Alisa Farman story was created later to explain the source.

    Let's speculate about Illyrio's chests

    What could be in those chests? Dragon eggs recovered from the ruins of Summer Hall. The Targaryens are not what you could call materialistic. They valued dragons more than riches.
  8. Joffrey is more impuulsive. He's going to be tougher than Robert.

    Robert's Kingsguard

    The make up of the guards was a reflection of the moral decay during Robert's reign. Robert is more sane than Aerys but the kingdom was much poorer. A bad king whose content to stay in the background and let others manage his kingdom is better than a meddler who doesn't know what he's doing. Fighting ability is important but less than complete loyalty. A bodyguard must be loyal at all times to the person they guard. Oakheart and Jaime were not. Jaime was sleeping with the queen behind Robert's back. The character of the people getting the job were poor. Barristan should have never taken that pardon from Robert. But his story is one of redemption and it's never too late to make things right. Joffrey opened his eyes and at the tender age of 61 realized his mistake in serving Robert. Hightower, Whent, Darry, and Dayne died in the service of Aerys. It is poetic if Barristan dies in the service of his queen, Daenerys Stormborn. He will have died doing the right thing.
  10. Tywin is an old man. His days are numbered. Joffrey can't be contained when he reaches adulthood.
  11. Ah no. It's not foreshadowed. Tommen is not going wolf hunting. Nymeria is not going to K/L. The two will never meet.
  12. Joffrey Lannister will be worse than Robert. He takes over an empty treasury and a throne loaded with debt. His parents haven't a clue when it comes to finances. I guess you could say Jaime and Cersei are financially illiterate. He might have a chance with more able parents but the kid doesn't have a prayer. The realm would bleed until the end of his reign.
  13. You mean paying actors and stunt people aren't costly? It is possible. Get enough artists and cgi people and it's possible. Would you want to? How is it better than live action.

    Can Aegon I conquer Europe in the 15th century?

    Aegon and Visenya are smart enough to stay out of range. Aegon did that in Harrenhall. He flew high enough to stay beyond the range of the ironborn scorpions and rained fire down on the castle.
