    Would Balon attacking the Westerlands really change anything?

    no you are mistaken. If the north hadn't been attacked while rob was in the riverlands he would have been much better off. He lost winterfell and half the north and had no way to help his people. This would kill morale among the northman. Also this likely led to bolton joining the lannisters because after rob lost the north he would have seen the writing on the wall. Also I don't think tywin would have been able to ignore the threat to his coast. He would have had to reinforce those area's at the expense of others which would only help rob and his men. I don't think tyrell would join tywin if he looked like he was going to lose or that their was a real possibility of it.he would have either joined stannis or tried for the throne himself or just stood aside like dorne and the vale did. And with rob not depressed about bran and rickon dying (at least he thought so) he may have not slept with jeyne pool thus making the freys stay loyal. So at best the boltons wouldn't have joined the freys and without the boltons helping the red wedding would have not had enough men to do it. Thus no red wedding. I am not saying rob would have won but he might have. The iron born taking the north was the beggining of the end for rob

    The rights of wives stolen to beyond the wall.

    lets just agree being a women in the game of thrones universe sucks

    The rights of wives stolen to beyond the wall.

    ah but tarly is actually honorable. And in my opinion part of that was to keep his men from running wild. Bolton let his troops do whatever they want and discpline fell apart. That said the men doing it weren't men of any means. If a noble had done it or a wealthy merchant then nothing would have been done. Basically in the game of thrones world you don't want to be poor and/or a women.

    the same can be said if a man killed someone. Their relatives would want vengence and if the "killer" wasn't part of a powerful tribe or family he would have no protection.

    Which kingdom would you let secede if you were king?

    that's what I was saying about the iron isles. They are still raiding now that they are part of the seven kingdoms but to a lesser extent
  6. I think that there was a "long night" but it wasn't to the extent that we heard. Remember it is passed down through story tellers and we first hear it from ol nan who tells it like a horror story. I think it was more like very short days and a very long winter but not one that lasted centuries because nothing could survive that because there would be no food. So basically some of it is an exagerattion. I think that when the white walkers move in force it somehow starts it. Well when they move in force and winter hits. My idea is that the wall is holding it back as well.

    The rights of wives stolen to beyond the wall.

    When it involves wildlings it is more or less a part of their culture. A twisted part but it is expected. The people south of the wall do not follow this idea and thus the women who are kidnapped have no rights and see it as kidnapping (which it is) rather then some twisted form of marriage. This idea of abducting women to marry them is not something out of fantasy. The mongols for example did this a very long time ago (some of them not all). In fact I believe that genghis khans parents met that way. As for what happens to these "marriages" north of the wall afterwards it seems that women are taught to kill their husband if he attacks them or they are displeased with them to a great degree. Hence ygritte saying "a man can own a knife or a wife but he can't own both" or something like that. Implying that if a man abuses his wife she is more or less allowed to kill him. I may have read into this wrong but that is what I took it as. What is really weird and twisted is that after the kidnapping it seems that the women north of the wall have far more rights then the women south of the wall. For example a women south of the wall can be beaten to a pulp everyday by her husband and is not allowed to fight back or she is killed. Where as if a man north of the wall tries that then he can't sleep next to his wife or he will be killed in his sleep. Thus men north of the wall don't have the free reign that the men of the south have

    either the north because there isn't much there besides empty space and unlike the westerlands there is little of value. Or I would choose the iron isles just so I would have an excuse to wipe them out when they started raiding.

    Rethinking Saint Jon and Winterfell

    I think the book version of jon is better because he isn't perfect. He isn't riding in and saving the day on a shiny white steed and pretty armor. He has faults and in the books he is more cold then the show. Martin made him one of the best characters in terms of being "good" but if you look at the other characters that there are how many are not extremly flawed. You have sir barristan,sir davos,and jon (I might be missing one) who are the "pure" characters. But look at most of the other characters. Tyrion in a dance of dragons rapes a women and yes she had no choice so it was rape. And in the books he does other questionable things. Then you have the characters that are horrific like cersei and victorian. (I am only mentioning characters who we have been in their POV). Then you have theon who in my opinion is one of the worst. Because unlike ramsey who is pure evil theon knew the things he did were horrible but did them anyways and could feel guilt. And jaime only became "redeemed" because he could no longer fight like he could before. If he had not lost his hand he would still be the a** hole he was. So by comparisson jon is the white knight.

    Casterly Rock Why?

    Yes but if he never quits the kings guard in the book there are still a ton of male lannister to take casterly rock. In the show it seems as if every lannister evaporates after season 3 or 4 to only tywin and his kids,kevan,and lancel. Thus in the show the situation is much more dire then in the books. That is what I am pointing out
  11. snow is the man

    Casterly Rock Why?

    no I don't think so I think he just meant I am not giving you the great casterly rock. Even though in the show the only male heirs in the entire lannister family by this time are lancel and tyrion and kevan. The rest seem to have dissapeared. And since kevan is roughly the same age as tywim it is really just lancel and tyrion. so basically the man who says family name is everything is willing to let it all die because he hates tyrion. If they had included maybe one more real heir to casterly rock this would have made sense.
  12. snow is the man

    Casterly Rock Why?

    well while it may be made of rock it does melt and at an incredible heat and there are holdes and windows and such that the fire can go through to get at the people inside. If they were smart and heartless they would have the dragons come in at night and attack and then send in the unsullied the next day to take it from whoever is left. And I say heartless because it would kill a bunch of people. and it's alright I have those moments of "huh" as well.
  13. snow is the man

    Casterly Rock Why?

    well to be fair I don't think tyrion knew that there was no gold left. Also since the lannisters went from having an obscene amount of people in their family like they did in the books it suddenly had all but tywin's three children go missing. That said losing your homebase is a big deal. but with no lannisters there and no gold it isn't a big deal considering the fact she will lose alot of soldiers taking it.

    How good a swordsman is Jon actually?

    in the show yeah they seem to basically depend on their magic and such. And I forgot about him killing the second one.

    jon is supposed to be one of the best living swordsman from what I see. I do think that him killing that WW is not as big of an accomplishment as people think. The WW he killed was even more shocked then him when he blocked the blow with longclaw and then jon was just able to recover faster then the WW.
