  1. This is why I kind of want the Others to win. Also, on the First Men note, Robar Royce was a hero for trying to drive the Andals out of the Vale.
  2. That would more than likely deter the Manderlys from starting their own bank. I highly doubt that Braavos will abide competition so close to home.
  3. I’m kind of surprised that Dagmer and his men are still alive at this point. Surely the Northman could have taken Torrhen’s Square back by now? How many Ironborn were even part of that force?
  4. Kevan also bore witness to the alienation and abuse of Tyrion by his father and sister for years. And unlike Tyrion’s other uncles, he is not kind to him and is quick to suspect the worst in him.
  5. It’s possible. But you could probably speculate the same thing about Alicent and Aegon II’s relationship (at least, before House of the Dragon, anyway).
  6. I’m sure whatever rot she has will easily blend in with everyone else’s.
  7. Many trees can produce seeds without bearing fruits. Fruits aren’t a requirement in that regard. And given the climate that weirwoods have grown in, I would be surprised if they produced any fruits.
  8. It would explain why he’s so committed to Tywin. Not just relief that Tywin restored House Lannister’s reputation, but also the guilt over having served the men who killed his kinsman. I doubt Roger Reyne was stupid enough to bring Kevan to the ambush, though, especially since the whole point was that his brother claimed it was an accident. Kevan being there and seeing everything for himself would destroy that claim in a heartbeat.
  9. The humans deserve to be killed by the Others.
  10. That’s why I said I would prefer Rhaegar had become king. If Robert hadn’t been around to get engaged to Lyanna before she eloped, maybe the rebellion wouldn’t have been so devastating. And presumably Rhaegar would have finally had the nerve to remove his father from the throne and take over with the blessings of the great lords who were done with the Mad King. That would have been a preferable scenario to Robert, whose rule ended with the breakout of the worst war that Westeros has seen in a long time. And it’s not even over yet, all while more awful stuff is happening just as the Others arrive to do their own thing.
  11. I think he should have abdicated when he turned 16. Forget Lyanna, forget Ned, forget the Stormlands entirely, he would have been just as bad at being a lord as he was at being a king. Just go east and live by the skill of his weapons. Stannis becomes the new lord, so he’s got less reason to grind his teeth so much. I don’t like Stannis either but I find it hard to believe that he could have done worse than Robert. Robert was one of the absolute worst kings who ever sat on the Iron Throne. He’s a careless glutton like Aegon IV, he barely exercises his power like Aerys I, and he is just as weak-minded and weak-willed as Aenys. Maybe if Rhaegar had had a chance to become king, things would have been much different.
  12. Robert shouldn’t have been the firstborn Baratheon. He was never meant for ruling, he only cared about war. But caring about ruling wouldn’t necessarily have made him good at it either, he’s got more problems than that. Ultimately, I think he should have abdicated his responsibilities at some point and gone east to form his own sellsword company. He’d have been much happier.
  13. Westerlands: Clegane (if nothing else than to find the answer to my earlier post) North: Umber (by James’ logic, I want to know the story which inspired that sigil) Riverlands: Justman (it’d be a hell of an accomplishment to conquer the Riverlands, let alone if you’re just a bastard Rivers) Iron Islands: Hoare Vale: Royce Crownlands: Velaryon Dorne: Uller (weird how they’re not cursed for pulling a Red Wedding of sorts. They even boast about it on their sigil) Stormlands: Swann Reach: Hightower
  14. That scenario feels grossly implausible. And besides, didn’t they justify Brienne’s size already? She is a descendant of Dunk.
  15. Presumably the kennelmaster would have to have already been an above-average sized man to begin with.
  16. I know we have to suspend a lot of disbelief with Gregor Clegane, but what do you think is the in-universe explanation for his freakish size? It’s possible that he has some kind of gigantism. The raging headaches could be a symptom, but they could just as easily be due to a head injury he suffered at some point in his life. Another thing that gives me pause on the gigantism theory is that Sandor isn’t that much smaller than him. We don’t know how big their father and grandfather were, but assuming their size is genetic, they must have been similar in height to Dunk.
  17. Which claimants have been killed? Halys Hornwood’s sister is still alive, as are her children. They were the only other serious claimants to the house besides Larence Snow
  18. To be fair, justice and revenge don’t ever work out for anyone in this series. And I don’t think Manderly will die yet. He was definitely courting death at Winterfell by goading his enemies. Probably because he already has word of davos or Maege or whoever. But yeah, it seems obvious that he’s about to die, so I think he’ll pull through to the end of the series. Whoever rules the North will need a couple of loyal vassals.
  19. I feel like there is a lot of disagreement on which Targaryens were actually mad, and on the definition of “mad” in general.
