    True Heir to the Throne

    It depends on the opinions of the lords and ladies of the realm as to who they’d consider the true heir, and they’ll have different opinions like people on this forum do. I’d consider Jon, as a legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen, to be the true heir to the throne. But one could argue Daenerys is the true heir, because Queen Rhaella crowned Viserys III on Dragonstone and he named Daenerys his heir. Those who support the Baratheon Rebellion may consider Gendry the heir, as the legitimate Baratheon line is extinct. Cersei also has a claim, not only through conquest but also through proximity, in which case Jaime could put forward a claim as her eldest brother. There may even be a claim for Brienne’s father Lord Selwyn Tarth as House Tarth has recent ties to House Baratheon and House Targaryen and so they *might* be the legitimate heirs to both House Targaryen (after Jon and Daenerys) and to House Baratheon. So long story short, there is no “true heir,” just claims. Jon has the best claim to me, but if I was a lord I might not believe the evidence and so consider the true heir to be Daenerys, and even then I might consider her too brutal and choose to support another claimant even if I believe their claim weaker.

    So where would you live ?

    The Red Mountains of Dorne is a fairly easy choice for me. Ideally as a rich and powerful lord.
  4. Oh why does this sound so probable?

    Is Rhaegal completely useless?

    Rhaegal is green I only just learnt which one was the dragon and which one was the prince

    Shaera in Aerys´ rule

    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. GRRM has omitted a number of details to be included within the D&E series to culminate at Summerhall, at which time Shaera was 33 years old. He may be reserving details to reveal more about her character when the time comes, especially if her unpleasantness is part of a plot twist (such as manipulating Jaehaerys so she could be Queen, or being a dodgy mother to Aerys). It’s perfectly likely of course that she is a mere footnote in history, but I wouldn’t rule out something.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    What better purpose for a zombie Starkgaryen than to wrestle control of an undead dragon? I don't really expect this to happen, but it seems to me like it'd make a lot of sense.

    HBO has ordered prequel series

    I was expecting and looking forward to The Dance of the Dragons (which hasn't necessarily been ruled out), but I was pleasantly surprised and look forward to this idea. If the Dance also goes ahead, the two prequels would be a good allegory of ice (the Long Night) and fire (the Dance). At any rate, it should be really interesting to see more of the Children of the Forest and get some more backstory on the Starks and the Others, and the suggestion that the story didn't go quite how we've heard it makes me really interested. I'm expecting some fun plot twists that will really change our perspective of events. I'm ready for 2020!
  10. I don't want Cersei's pregnancy to end in a simple miscarriage. I don't want Tyrion to end up as Lord of Casterly Rock. I don't want Brienne to die - I think many people see her as just a 'knight,' but she's also the only heir to Tarth and I would love to see her succeed as the Lady of Tarth and have children, which AFFC seemed to suggest she would like, and it'd be nice for her to break out of Westeros's gender binary and see that that she can be a warrior, a mother, and a Lady. Linked to this, I wouldn't like to see the deaths of minor characters, such as Meera, Podrick and Sam, who are the only characters representing their houses - other families exist outside of the Great Houses, and I think the show runners have already done a poor job of representing the richly inter-connected variety of nobility, and the result for me is a Westeros that feels oddly lonely. I'd like the Others to have a somewhat sympathetic backstory, but I don't see that as likely at this point. I'll be very disappointed if powerful (or potentially-powerful) lords such as Sweetrobin and Edmure are sidelined completely throughout the season, and I'd like to see them play a role with their armies (I'm assuming the Riverlands would embrace Edmure's return to power) and/or a role in some form of Great Council at the end. The leaks seem to suggest Lord Arryn has at least a few scenes, which I'm happy to see. This all makes it seem like I want a fluffy ending with no deaths or damage, when really I love dark shows and literature. But these are the things I'm most worried of seeing.

    Your heart's desire last words of GOT?

    “I now proclaim Robin of the House Arryn, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm.”

    The future Lord of the Crossing

    Personally I think the Freys will end the series in a fairly powerful position; Perwyn or Olyvar ruling as the Lord of Rosby and Amerei ruling as the Lady of Darry. They’ll probably take the Rosby and Darry names though, and I currently have no strong opinions about the fate of the Twins.

    What if Balon was smart?

    It’s not out of the question, historically a Hoare wed a Lannister, so the Greyjoys should be able to negotiate a marriage with a Great House if they had the willpower, but I just don’t think they’re interested. Balon in particular was too obsessed with paying the Iron Price and neglected the values of diplomacy, marriage and trade.

    In defense of Lady Lysa Arryn

    I don’t think it was right to poison Jon Arryn, but I have a lot of sympathy for Lysa; she was given a really shitty hand in life (for a noble) and for that I blame Hoster Tully. I don’t think Lysa was a bad person, but I don’t think it was right to poison Jon either.

    Daenerys & Poison

    I quite like the idea of the treason for gold being a betrayal from Tyrion, but he hasn’t even met her yet and it doesn’t seem to fit into the timeline very well. The treason for gold could refer to the Golden Company in some way. I am expecting a betrayal from Daario though, he seemed dangerously bitter at Daenerys’s marriage to Hizdahr.
