    If you could change the events of one chapter

    Ned should have listened carefully to what Arya told him about the conversation between Varys and Illyrio. He could have checked by asking Arya to show him the place where she saw the two men.

    Time to show your true colours

    All in all 23 members have answered until now. Above I give the numbers. Some surprises for me. ad E) I was tempted to vote for the implication of the Faceless Men in the murder of Raff the Sweetling (finally I didn't). But it is not so far fetched. Only 2 versus 18 votes though for this. ad G) I expected though that some might think that Jaime's life would end, if Brienne brings him to Lady Stoneheart, but noone did. ad K) Overwhelming vote for Stannis to survive and win the battle at the Crofter's village. I thought to have read some theories about Stannis dying and/or losing,

    Why the constant haircuts?

    Losing her hair is a traumatic thing for most women, in contrast to men. Sansa would probably be most traumatized, had she to cut her hair. For Arya it shows that she is ready to sacrifice anything to survive and that she doesn't really care for standard female attributes.

    Where did Elia fit in the Lyanna-Rhaegar relationship?

    She was left on Dragonstone, not in KL If my memory is well, Elia was left in KL together with her children. Aerys forbid her to leave KL. It was Rhaella who was shipped to Dragonstone together with Viserys.

    This is a pure summary of predictions. No discussions.

    If Ned+Ashara= Jon, was Jon unwanted in Dorne?

    What a heated debate! I wonder how some people in this forum will deal with their theory being proven wrong by WOW. I recommend to keep doors open, not to shut them close. We are arguing and assuming here. Some theories are impossible, some theories are possible but more or less probable. I still adhere to R+L=J, but I wouldn't throw myself from a tower if WOW will show that I was wrong.

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    You forgot to mention that Shae helped with her lies to condemn Tyrion to death. She betrayed him. And I can also understand why Tyrion raped Tysha when Tywin commanded it; Tyrion was not only under pressure to obey his Father, he also believed that Tysha had lied to him. Things we do for love….

    If Ned+Ashara= Jon, was Jon unwanted in Dorne?

    I am not satisfied with the TV show at all, at least not after Season 3 or 4. But nevertheless I cannot believe that Benioff/Weiss dared to change Jon's parentage. GRRM was involved closely in the first TV shows, he would have objected.

    Varys or Littlefinger

    I feel it is very probable that Littlefinger was clever enough to organize the Purple Wedding and Sansa's escape without Varys having any knowledge of it. Varys is not omnipotent. He admitted in the discussion not to know what Littlefinger was up to. Littlefinger took precautions that Sansa met Dontos only in the goodswoods. And Lady Olenna was clever enough too to avoid spies when needed. And how should Varys have been able to prevent Littlefinger's move to becom Protector of the Vale?

    If Ned+Ashara= Jon, was Jon unwanted in Dorne?

    For me the matter is simple: We know from GRRM that he agreed to let Benioff and Weiss make a TV series from his novels, as during a dinner they proofed to have read and understood the story by answering GRRM's question concerning Jon's parentatge correctly. In the TV series, Jon's parentage is clear. There are only two possibilites for a different parentage: 1) Benioff and Weiss deliberately invented a different parentage for the TV series (very unprobable, because GRRM would have refused). 2) GRRM changed his mind later or didn't tell Benioff and Weiss the truth (for whatever reason).

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    Wow, so Slynt, Thorne and Bowen Marsh are the good guys now and Jon is evil and a deserter? I must have missed something while reading ASOIAF several times….

    Will Dany burn Essos on the way to Westeros?

    Dany probably hasn't to burn Essos by herself. It would suffice if she flew with Drogon over Volantis, for all to see, and the slaves would go mad and revolt. And so forth with further cities.

    Littlefinger's Plans

    So you think she would have improvised? She had only some days or even few hours to do so. Imagine, Robert had come back unharmed or only slightly wounded? The King was well guarded.

    Littlefinger's Plans

    Did Cersei have a plan B? I mean, it was by far not sure that the strongwine would lead to Robert's death. In fact, that he would be deadly wounded was highly improbable. He had guards, he missed his thrust only for a small moment. What if Robert had returned alive or at least not died within three or four days? What then was Cersei's plan? Did she alter anything after the conversation with Ned or Sansa?
