    Poker Face

    I'd add Lord Manderly and his Merman court to this list. Frey pies anyone?

    Which Frey would make the best King?

    How many Frey groupie threads is this now?
  3. Ramsay isn't bright. He isn't a masterful player in the game. I wouldn't be surprised if that conversation was already overheard or he slips and reveals it himself. I personally just hope he ends up being flayed by Theon. Fuck Ramsay!

    To quote the Ned.....a castle is only as strong as the men who defend it.

    Why Ned didn't name one of his daughters Lyanna?

    Too painful for him, I'd imagine. Him having to raise Jon and lie to everyone about it is more than enough for the poor Ned.

    Am I the only one who really enjoys ADWD?

    No, but I must admit that I preferred reading ADWD as a simultaneous reread with AFFC. It made way more sense to me that way so I could enjoy both books.

    Wow, I never noticed that v.17

    I was going to say the same thing.

    Daenerys and the number 3

    Jon Snow is Rhaegar's 3rd child. And when you read his chapters, the number 3 comes up often. I had started circling the number every time I came across it during a reread once and it was honestly EVERYWHERE. I'm sure that's to give them some sort of future connection, but I'll refrain from theorizing...they tend to hijack threads.
  9. Yes to all of this and it's the only series I keep wanting to come back to. I love rereading only a few books (To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride & Prejudice, The Awakening) but those are classics. This is totally different. There are foreshadowing clues I didn't pick up on during my first or even third read that fascinates me about GRRM. These are also the only books I've highlighted, underlined, written notes in the margins, etc. because I notice either a pattern, wordplay from the author, hints towards theories and so on...(gave me flashbacks of law school, but those were my favorite years in school). I think his ability to weave in historical events, with fantasy elements, in a medieval world is by far beyond EPIC.

    Is Tommen being poisoned?

    This is very interesting! Thank you for adding to this thread. There's so much mention throughout the series of wine, different types of wine, poisoning used in wine, etc. that it gives one pause. Cersei has been going downhill fast and making her more anxious and paranoid seems like a good start for someone who enjoys chaos.

    Is Tommen being poisoned?

    Yes. He did notice how his coloring was off lately and how he couldn't even stand without the wall there to help him. Maybe someone is trying to add to Cersei's anxiety and paranoia by messing with Tommen's food taster. Anything to make her more unstable...chaos is a ladder.

    "Best" GoT edition?

    Yeah, the illustrations are really pretty and so is the cover. I have all the books too, but this one I hold with the vane hope of having GRRM sign it one day. One can dream, right?

    "Best" GoT edition?

    I have this version. I didn't know there were multiple illustrated editions, but this one is really pretty. https://www.amazon.com/Game-Thrones-Illustrated-Song-Fire/dp/0553808044/ref=sr_1_9?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1528327663&sr=1-9&keywords=a+game+of+thrones
