  1. Well who'd have thought this happened in the show.
  2. And some kids suffer less and become killers. Look at Joffrey or Aerys the Mad.
  3. Two. There was a Vale tribesman whose throat she slit in AGOT.
  4. That tends to happen as a zombie, not to mention GRRM's dislike of resurrections where the person who comes back is mostly normal.
  5. Another one to throw in: Randyll and Sam. Not even Tywin directly threatens to murder his son unless he goes to a monastic order (and for some reason Tywin never considers sending Tyrion to the citadel and enables his whoring by giving him money despite his public disapproval).
  6. Unfortunately we don't see much of Ned as a ruler in the North so however good a job he did seems on the surface to be informed ability.
  7. Well, GRRM emphasizes realism in his work so when it doesn't match it sticks out like a sore thumb (like Anguy's steel liver and sex drive which is nearly equivalent to a one-month rental for a pirate fleet).
  8. That's if they don't get whittled down by the Sons of the Harpy.
  9. She will jump out of a tree and kill the Great Other.
  10. I remember there was a tangent on a thread of mine about why Aegon a) didn't have more kids and b) waited so long to have kids. We the readers don't even hear of miscarriages and stillbirths as were wont to happen (especially with the Targaryens).
  11. She's not going to be found. Didn't GRRM say that in another interview?
  12. From a post of mine in the Rant and Rave thread: So this was something that I was thinking about in the last two seasons and it occurred to me that Daenerys and her camp didn't do enough to show that she should be Queen over Cersei. There have been a few strategic missteps but I've described those ad nauseum in other posts and threads. Conversely, Cersei is seen negotiating with the Iron Bank with gold seized from Highgarden and spreading lies about Daenerys to the rest of the nobility that Daenerys is untrustworthy due to the company she keeps, which is what Varys, as Master of Whispers should have been doing. How hard could it be? Again, did she do everything she could have to win? And what could she have done?
  13. On the other hand I could see it happening since GRRM has a liking for age gap relationships with a side order of Stockholm (read: Drogo and Daenerys).
  14. Though wouldn't GRRM argue against that viewpoint since both Robert and Ned, who were both veteran soldiers, were shown to be poor rulers?
  15. That does seem to be how Daenerys is; she doesn't wear armor (maybe it's the Dothraki rubbing off on her). If Drogon wasn't there in the battle on the road, Jaime would have made her into a shish-khaleesibab.
  16. Of course that would require Daenerys actually wearing armor.
  17. I think Jon Connington would likely be driven to sacking as an act of desperation before his greyscale advances too far. Or for all we know given how greyscale messes with the brain, the greyscale could literally make him do something irrational.
  18. Well the White Walkers (the ones in the show) themselves appear to be a living weapon designed to counteract people that backfires, which appear to fit the books and show's theme of good intentions blowing up in someone's face.
  19. I guess that's what it is, they had two years to work with for the last season.
  20. If Lady Stoneheart doesn't get to him first.
  21. We know the Starks did on occasion since there's a couple connections with the Royces and Blackwoods. Ned has an aunt who married into the Stormlands.
  22. Is it possible that there were inklings going on even before the War of the Ninepenny Kings? For example Ned Stark had an aunt who married into House Rogers in the Stormlands, and bear in mind there is barely any information about House Rogers.
