    Summer eating wights

    The author's original outline had Catelyn and her children escaping to the other side of the wall. The savagery of their direwolves saved them from the widllings. Martin is doing the opposite of most authors. Instead of the people moving towards progress their world is going back to being primitive. I guess George Martin wants to explore and different path than most stories in which the people are moving towards the future. The western side of the story is moving towards the past rather than the future.
  2. I doubt this. There are many who would want to take this opportunity to better their luck. The Greyjoys might ally with a former enemy with the promise that should the Lannisters win, and they most likely will, the Iron Isles can have its independence. Lannister gold can hire thousands of sellswords. Tywin can reach out to the Golden Company and promise them Baratheon lands. I think you will find many families will side with the lions. Most houses are still recovering from the death toll of the rebellions. House Lannister was basically unscathed. Tywin could make a back door deal with the second-most powerful houses in each kingdom. Frey, Bolton, Hightower, Yronwood may answer his call.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    Jaime has a lot to answer for. In my opinion, the Starks will get to him first and kill him for turning Bran into a cripple. The Starks are much more likely to kill Jaime than Daenerys. Daenerys is playing on a larger stage than any of the main characters and executing Jaime is not going to be high on her list of To Do. Daenerys also has shown a remarkable capacity to forgive. Bran and the Starks, on the other hand, are not going to forgive Jaime for what he did. The Starks are not a forgiving people. The "north remembers" is not a propaganda for peace and forgiveness. It's a call for cold-blooded revenge. Let's look and see which family is in revenge mode. Yes, the Starks. Second daughter, Momma Stoneheart, and the illegitimate son of the house have all done their bit to take revenge on their enemies. Arya is killing people, guilty or innocent doesn't matter. She's willing to make them pay the price to get revenge on the people that hurt her pack. Jon let his feelings for the Starks sway his judgment and it led to the questionable execution of a sworn brother. Stoneheart started by killing the innocent Jinglebell Freys and moved on to those who had very little role in the wedding.

    Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister

    Hopefully on the battlefield on opposite sides. Feuding over a love triangle involving one of the Stark girls that got impregnated by the little lion. But maybe Jon will die from the knife wounds and Tyrion will have his love triangle with somebody else.
  5. It's impossible for Stan and Jon to provide proof without a signed confession from Jaime or Cersei. I think you will agree, that is not forthcoming. This scenario is a completely different story. But yeah, the Lannisters would deny it.

    Is Jon to blame? #NotMyKing

    Of course Dumb (Stannis) and Dumber (Jon) will get the blame. Stannis could have done everything he could to make peace with Roose Bolton if his main interest was stopping the Others. Jon would have forgotten Arya instead of picking a fight with the Boltons if he put stopping the Others as his main priority. These two guys should get the blame. Stannis should not have any authority at the wall. Put he and Jon together and they still do not have the right to open the gates to thousands of wildlings without first getting approval from King's Landing.

    Does GRRM hate heroism or avoid it? (Jon and Quentyn comparison)

    Gregor is an idiot. Ramsay is evil. Yeah there are villains. I don't blame Marsh at all. Jon needed to be dealt with. The boy had lost his senses while obsessing over Arya.

    Does GRRM hate heroism or avoid it? (Jon and Quentyn comparison)

    No proof. No proof that the Others are interested in crossing the wall. Yeah so Mance Rayder used his Horn like some sort of Trojan device to trick Dumb and Dumber, Stannis and Jon, into allowing his wildlings through the wall. Why not? The rangers were trespassing. They were caught on the wrong side of the wall. So why not toy with this arrogant young man and play ice volleyball with their heads.
  10. A woman who would be fine with Bob's extramarital fun but who herself would remain faithful.

    Pros and Cons of Stannis accepting the faith of fire worshippers?

    What options did Stannis have? The faith supported Joffrey. He didn't have convincing proof. He was a lost dog that needed to find shelter. The red woman gave him that.

    Would a family therapist help the Greyjoys out?

    Here is one such therapy session for a Stark: Maester Sigmund, Ph.D., M.D., DDS, DVM, & ED.S : How are you feeling today? Arya Stark snaps back: Tired. Maester Sigmund: Did you sleep well, child? Arya Stark: I got up and howled at the moon. Padded over to the Heart Tree, squatted, and peed. Then got back to howling at the moon. Maester Sigmund: And pray tell me, child. Why made you do such a thing? Arya Stark: I needed to pee, dumbass. Maester Sigmund: I meant howl at the moon. Why did you howl at the moon? Arya Stark: It was full. Why else. Maester Sigmund: Did you feel better after, er, taking a leak? Arya Stark: No. I still get the urge to murder people. Maester Sigmund: You have anger issues. How did it all start? What could bring a child to feel such terrible things? Arya Stark: It all started when the other girls started calling me Horseface. Last christmas, I got hay nuts from my sister. Maester Sigmund: And the bastard. What about him? You two are close. You even look alike. Tell me about him. Arya Stark: The weirwoods talk to me. They tell me we're going to die and become a wolf pack some day.

    Appreciation for the Shavepate

    Please forgive me for promoting and bringing back old topic of mine. So which is it? The Way of Peace or The Chicago Way?
