    Why didn’t Varys kill Tommen?

    As said before, Tommen is a suspected bastard, with his crazy mother as his regent... If Aegon only tooked the throne would be several enemies ready to revolt questioning his legitimacy, his claims are outrageous, a baby that survived the sack of Kings Landing, by being swaped with another, while his older sister remained there. He needs to be seeing as a savior to avoid this kind of trouble later on, and for this to happen the best for him is Cersei on command. Varys not only killed Kevan and Pycelle, but he plans to blame this on the Tyrells and force Cersei to end this alliance. "I thought the crossbow fitting. You shared so much with Lord Tywin, why not that? Your niece will think the Tyrells had you murdered, mayhaps with the connivance of the Imp."

    Appropriate Punishment for Catelyn

    There is nothing that Robb could really do, other than what he did... If he executed her for high treason he would be seen as a lunatic and lost more suport.

    Could Dany conquer Dorne with a Dothraki horde?

    We should also remember who is holding Dorne now... Doran, he is not that military guy, he could surrender to Dany before the conquest was even complete. He is slow to act, and not decive enough. Doran ruling, I belive Dorne could be conquered. Oberyn ruling, I belive it cannot. He is too stuborn (wanting to keep fighting even after the sack of KL), and would keep revolting again and again.

    Robb’s Strategy

    Not really. Robb sidding with Stannis does not change anything. Robb already made everything that he could to help Stannis when he lured Tywin West, and let Stannis free to attack KL... and he still failed.

    Why did Stannis marry Selyse Florent?

    Sounds like Robert.

    The Sack of Darry

    Edmure seems to be incapable of learning from his past mistakes. He already messed up his situation before by spreading his forces, and he pressure Robb to do the same, later on he will fill his castles with a lot of mounths to feed when he could be facing a siege.

    Robb’s Strategy

    Robb strategy was the right one, he acomplished all his objectives. Robb wanted a Lannister hostage to trade for his father, he wanted to protect the riverlands and free his family, and he wanted to blood the Lannisters. He was able to get all of this. He won his battle, he captured Jaime, he freed Edmure, he lift the siege of the Riverlords and he destroyed the Lannister army under Jaime, all this with minimal loses. After riverrun everything changes for reasons beyond his control. Joffrey does what no one would do and kills Eddard. Stannis has no political timing and let Renly mess up the sucession. Even if Robb had made everything right after this he would lose. Join Stannis? his cause is lost after blackwater. Join Renly? he will delay his march and die like a dog before the first battle. Independence? we saw how it went. Marry the frey girl? they would still betray him as the Freys tell us, before even knowing about the vow break. “Even if Riverrun marshals all its strength and the Young Wolf wins back from the west, how can we hope to match the numbers Lord Tywin can send against us? When he comes, he will come with far more power than he commanded on the Green Fork. Highgarden has joined itself to Joffrey’s cause, I remind you!” Ser Harys Haigh, who was a Frey on his mother’s side, nodded vigorously. “If Lord Tywin could defeat a seasoned man like Stannis Baratheon, what chance will our boy king have against him?” He looked round to his brothers and cousins for support, and several of them muttered agreement. “Stannis lost,” Ser Hosteen said bluntly. “Wishing it were otherwise will not make it so. King Robb must make his peace with the Lannisters. He must put off his crown and bend the knee, little as he may like it.”

    Just how many people knew about the incest?

    Stannis, Jon Arryn, Varys, LF, Eddard, Pycelle, Kevan and Tyrion. So at the very least 8.

    POVs you wished for and that you were weary of?

    Maybe, I'm do not know where the story is going after all, but any plot that Marg had was at least post poned after she is made prisoner. Marg would bring us a lot. The Tyrell family dynimics, her relationship with Tommen, how close LF is with the Tyrells and her toughts after the PW.

    Cold-hearted Robb

    Agree acording to Tyrion "That was when he knew. You have given him up for lost, he thought. You bloody bastard, you think Jaime’s good as dead, so I’m all you have left" Robb should have traded Jaime for Sansa and something else.

    POVs you wished for and that you were weary of?

    Include: Blackfish: I do find interesting that the 5 Kings have no POV, this keep us from see their future moves, that said, I do think it was awkward how Robb simply vanish during ACoK. A Blackfish POV would give us more information about the lore with the war of the ninepenny kings, would show us Westerlands as a region, how the commanders saw Robb leadership, what did they know was happening and maybe give us a little about Robb and Jeyne relationship. Loras: Just like Robb I think that we don't need a Renly POV, but Loras would show us some light in his character. The only character that really knows Renly and we have as a POV is maester Cressen and he still think of Renly as a kid. Loras could also give us the Tyrell side that are a major players but have no POV on their own and their family dynamic. Loras also do not seem to be much of a plotter and would not ruin anything Exclude: Asha: We have soo much Greyjoys as POV. Theon Victarion Aeron...Victarion and Aeron are present to build Euron as a character, Victarion would be enough if he was close to Euron, but since he is not we need Aeron to show us the action and not just rummors. Asha on the other hand is not really necessary as a POV, the most important moments of her story so far are saw through the eyes of other characters. The return of Theon, Balon's death, The kingsmoot, even her capture could be replaced by she meeting Theon in Stannis camp at Winds of Winter. Replace: Margaery/Cersei: The same events but from another POV. Cersei chapters are too unpleasent and bitter, I do not like the prophecy of Maggy either because if it happens we already expect it in a way, and if not is something that didn't pay off. Margaery could give us just as much as Cersei but she would also surprise us more since she is caught by surprise by Cersei's plot during AFFC. The down side would be a little similar with Sansa's chapters but Margaery is a complete diferent character, much more quickly and not so defenseless as Sansa was.

    Would Lyanna start a war for Robert if Rhaegar kidnapped him?

    No but Ned would.
  13. I doubt very much that Lyanna would go out of her way to abort all of Robert's sons and daughters while trying to pass bastards as legit heirs and jeopardize the whole sucession crises and starting a civil war. Robert being miserable was the least problem with the Cersei's issue.
  14. sure. because you're taking the side of the guy literally called "the Mad" and you think cruel executions without trial or evidence based on pure paranoia is the right side of story....
  15. No they werent plotting anything.. No they didn't deserve anything they were the offended party on the issue. No Aerys didn't had the right and got deposed for it.
