    Fire and blood magic

    The Valyrians didn't have to pull a trick out of a fire like that. Their eggs were hatching normally. Sacrifice was not required to hatch the eggs. You may be right about the making of the sword. Which would explain why the Targaryens stopped commissioning for new swords.

    Sansa's betrayal consequences partly overestimated?

    I feel sorry for the parents of children who would go behind their back over a boyfriend. That is not betrayal. I can understand a daughter sneaking out at night to spend time with her boyfriend and even have sex. But to betray the family to an obviously untrustworthy person as Cersei was a very selfish act. I don't think the average teenager is that selfish. I don't know and have never been around a teenager who would risk her family's safety like that. Pity the parents who do. I'm not saying they don't exists but I would look on such a person with contempt should I ever meet one. They exists but hopefully in small numbers. In this day and age of first world kids who feel entitled and feel they shouldn't be held accountable for anything. I would not be shocked. I would hold a negative opinion of those who are like Sansa.
  3. Robb painted himself into a corner. It's not a good idea to take the river lands away from the kingdom of Westeros. The Lannisters will never allow themselves to get cut off from the east. The value of the river lands is high enough to motivate Joffrey's advisors to recommend keeping it.
  4. Do they still carry weight? The highest currency denomination is the Golden Dragon. Yeah their name still carry weight. They lost the awe when the dragons went away but the house name and the family still carry a lot of respect.

    Sansa's betrayal consequences partly overestimated?

    Sansa already witnessed what happened to Mycah, Lady, Nymeria. She knows Joffrey's pettiness and cruel streak. But because she's not smart even for her age all that data went unprocessed. The typical child of her age would not have the nerve to betray their father like that. That was selfish.

    Leaders need to put the needs of the many over the needs of the one. It doesn't matter if they loved the one more than they love the many. Leadership will require tough choices.

    Dad has a secret plan. So keep it a secret and don't say anything.
  8. Secrecy. The plan depended on secrecy. Messages can be intercepted and decoded.
  9. Families who were prospering won't be eager to change the government. Maintain the status quo was their motto. The Targaryens didn't do anything that would rise to the level of a rebellion. Its like what happened to Bran does not rise to the level where war is justified.

    There exists a gender bias among the fans. The females get less slack than the boys. It's true. However, Sansa still behaved badly by any measure and caused the demise of her family. Jon Snow was doing what was expected of him as a man of the watch. The sisters are no longer his to worry about. He only has his new sworn brothers and the defense of the wall for family. That satisfied most men but Jon is an emotional person who acts based on how he feels. He likes Arya; therefore, he worried about her. He and Sansa were never on good terms and his feelings for the red head was not as deeply felt. Martin wrote his character that way. You could say Jon was sitting on the fence all of the time. He had one ass cheek at the Night Watch and the other chunk of blob at the Starks. He didn't let go of the Starks as was expected of him. Robb Stark needed to put the war effort head of the family. The victory depended on what he can do with MVP Jaime. I would not trade Jaime for Sansa and Arya. Knowing the value the enemy placed on Jaime. Jaime was their salvation in a war they were losing. You don't throw that away for your siblings.

    Lyanna was worse only if she ran away. The fault can't be hers if Rhaegar kidnapped her. I wouldn't be quick to give Sansa a break. That was a very selfish thing to do. Going behind your father's back for the sake of remaining near Joffrey was the peak of selfishness. It hurt the Starks badly and led to the deaths of their people.

    Would Robert have been a better Lord than King?

    Yes. A man who doesn't want to be king will be terrible at it. He might bankrupt the Stormlands but the damage will be limited to his own people. He will do less harm in a lesser position of power.

    Bowen's next decision

    Jon looks like a Stark male. Ramsay would know that look. The long face is a dead give away.

    Is Young Griffs invasion filler?

    That's not proven. It is a nice theory but very far from proven. Young Griff can be anybody who had the right look. He's not filler material, true born or not. Most of the action from here on out will take place in Essos, South of Westeros, and the Wall. Daenerys is the protagonists in Essos. Stannis and Jon are the main people at the Wall. The South needs its own hero. Enter Young Griff. Each protagonists will fight her or his battle.

    The Doom Of Valyria mystery

    The Targaryens brought long periods of peace. Enough for the common people to get some breathing room from the ceaseless quarreling of the high lords. They built King's Landing, Sept of Baelor, and the roads.
