  1. Not necessarily. Those primitive folk are what the northmen were in the past. So they were leaving unwanted babies out to die. It can be seen as an offering and yet they were not protected. Something about Craster's genetics made his male offsprings important.

    Jaime Lannister

    Opinion: Coolest Sounding Name

    The best name in the story is Daenerys Targaryen. If we're not talking about actual names but nicknames, Eldric Shadowchaser.

    Poll: Has Brienne Become a Wight?

    Not yet. She will though. She and Jaime will turn to wights.
  5. Tyrion killed his father. That crime is not going to be forgiven. But such things are not going to be high priority when the whole continent is going through an Ice Age. It will depend on how soon he gets back west. If he gets back early enough so that the wall is still standing, yeah, Queen Daenerys might send him to the wall for his crime. Jorah as well. Arya should die with a sword in her hands. She dies while trying to kill the people on her list.

    The Tower of Joy

    Indeed Jon was born a lot earlier than the perpetuated lie. Perhaps early enough for him to be sired by Brandon on Ashara. The two fell in love at Harrenhal and they met again and had sex. The Kingsguard in the form of Barristan and jaime transferred their loyalty to Robert but Hightower and his two did not. They were always loyal to Aerys. The death of a king is considered a failure of the kG and therefore those men had nothing to live for. They went down fighting and took down five of the usurper's dogs.
  7. Very well. Let us run with your idea that blue roses are very rare. Let's go further and say it is so rare that one of the few places where it grows is the green house in Winterfell. We also know that a rose cannot stay fresh during the long journey from Winterfell to Harrenhal. So somebody brought a living plant from the north to the south. Given its rarity, the Starks would guard the living plant. One of two things happened: There was a secret Targaryen spy in the Stark household. My favorite idea---Mance Rayder stole a living plant and smuggled it south. There was a connection between Mance Rayder and Rhaegar Targaryen. Maybe they both wanted the kingdom to fracture. I can see why Mance Rayder would want this. But Rhaegar? Maybe he was a fool who wanted to end feudalism and replace it with wildling anarchy. If he was not a fool, he worked out a deal to help Mance Rayder take the north. Rhaegar was willing to give up on the northern iceland of savages to get rid of a future pain in the ass called Rickard and Brandon Stark.

    Exile from Valyria, why?

    The Freehold would have taken the people of Westeros and forced them to work in the mines. The Targaryens are the good guys and they chose not to bring that kind of slave system to the west.

    An evil girl's dark heart

    The faceless man took an interest in Arya because he sees a hateful little girl with the right type of personality for a hired killer. Somebody with a corrupt idea of morality and justice. Not of the squeamish type. Jaquen saw a sociopath.
  10. Barristan was not in on the joke. If the KOTLT can play a joke on the spectators so can Rhaegar. Might even be the same hired man. Which is the reason why the KOTLT quit before facing Rhaegar. It's the same guy.

    Exile from Valyria, why?

    This. They had the benefit of warning.
  12. Rhaegar was good enough to do well. It's tough to call. Maybe it was fixed. But putting a professional tourney knight in his place increases the chances of victory.
  13. Viserys, Jorah, Barbrey, and Varys were almost certainly there. The probability is good for Mance. Gout would prevent Doran from traveling. Illyrio and Domeric are possible attendees.

    Tender side of Tywin, Roose, And Walder.

    They were all fairly good husbands. They provided luxurious homes and lavish lifestyles to their wives. Tywin never fully recovered from the death of his wife. At least not in the eyes of the public. He was discreet with his whoring. At least he was respectful of her memory. Roose probably didn't do the first night screw with his peasants while his wife was alive. Walder, in my opinion, probably ran around his wives. But he was a good provider and protector.
