    Can we talk about Jon?

    Lack of evidence is kind of the point. Luckily the onus of providing proof of the existence of a thing falls upon the one claiming that thing exists. You never hear about people trekking through the wilderness looking for proof that Bigfoot doesn't exist. At this point, your two vague examples are correlation at best, coincidence at worst. It very well could be a Targaryen trait, or a trait shared by those of valyrian blood. If so, I find it peculiar that, after three hundred plus years of Targaryen rule over Westeros, it's not a trait that is ever mentioned by any Targaryens in any story published so far. I find it more likely that these were traits given to main characters to give them a little shape and individuality within their stories. Maybe we'll find out when Fire & Blood is published.

    I don't think that is some Targ/Valyrian trait, considering the fact that I've had occasion to share a shower with someone who liked the water hotter than I could stand. It was like dunking my sack into boiling water. Then again there was a time when I could pull sizzle plates right out of the oven without burning my hands. So I don't think the tendency of two characters who enjoy taking ridiculously hot baths is an indication of heat resistance for an entire bloodline.

    Valyrians don't have innate heat resistance. The ongoing fire immunity is showDany only.

    Hell, there are places in the US where first cousins can be married. Yes, I sacrificed my browsing history for this information Most places just have issue with lineal relations (grandparents, parents, kids, grandkids), leaving other relations wide open.

    Please stop spreading the mythology that wolves are ravenous and uncontrollable beasts. Ghost's real name is Quigley by the way. Instinct for Film: Wolves Rip your arm off with ease? I don't know about that. Kill you? Sure, but any canine weighing up to 200lbs can do that if it's switch has been flipped.

    De nada. The problem is that with the show on an accelerated pace, if the reforging of Ice is actually a thing... they'll probably have Gendry do it and not even bat an eyelash. It's all cliff's notes now.

    Have you considered that consistency in her portrayal is on purpose? People ive known don't completely change from year to year without significant reason. Same walks, same way of speaking, mannerisms and ticks. Complaining that she is consistent is the height of nitpicking.

    Mott (the blacksmith Gendry apprenticed under) did it in the books, but the show established that smiths able to work with valyrian steel are much rarer. Tywin had to ship the guy over from Essos.

    Nah man. You go to her place, you don't make your queen come to you. In all seriousness though, it did play out a little weird.
  10. Yeah, I don't get why he told Sam but not his own sisters?

    The first time I blew my back out I didn't have a cool story to go with it. I just woke up one morning and the pain was so bad I only made it halfway down my hallway before I had to lay down. Three hours on the floor was fun. My point though was that a seasoned boxer can reasonably take a punch better than someone whose never taken a hit before. When it comes to shots to the groin, Theon is arguably a seasoned boxer.

    Because Robert didn't really give a shit about Lyanna, but he loved the idea of her being the damsel to his hero. There was also the problem of his tacit approval of the murder of Rhaegar's wife* and children which created a huge rift between him and Ned.

    No. Jon was born after Robert was already on the throne but still recovering from his injuries that Rhaegar gave him.
