  1. It was announced that Milly Alcock and Emily Carey will be playing roles of young Rhaenyra Targaryen and young Alicent Hightower in the show. Sorry if this was already reported.
  2. In F&B in the battle over the God's Eye it was noted that Daemon Targaryen did not chain himself to his dragon's Ceraxes saddle and was therefore able to jump from his dragon onto Aemond Targaryen who had secured himself into the saddle on his dragon Vhager. This allowed Daemon to thrust his sword Dark Sister into Aemonds blind eye socket and kill him. My issue with dragon saddles is how handlers would be able to place them on the dragons if they were not the dragon's rider. Would be a very risky profession.
  3. Leanor was killed after the death of his sister. The time frame is not noted in the book. It was just noted that both Corlys and Rhaenys were still in mourning when he was killed. It was still in the year 120 AC however.
  4. The most prominent female at Driftmark for Laena's funeral would be her mother, Rhaenys Targaryen. At least in the book she had dark hair with gray streaks as she got older. Because of the mask it is really difficult to say with certainty whether it is the actress playing her role. And of course they can do a lot with makeup, especially in "older" individuals.
  5. Ashara is Howland Reeds' wife Jyanna (a name play for Jon and Lyanna). Their daughter is Meera Reed. Howland took her with him when he and Ned visited Starfall after the Tower of Joy incident. She needed to get away from Robert B's possible grasps after the rebellion. About the only place in Westeros where she could reasonably hide and not be found was in the neck with the Crannigmen. No one visited that area from the South. As she is a "Dornish" Dayne she also would have no problem with Meera being identified as Howland's heir rather than her brother Jojen.
  6. Its a good bet Leana, Laenor, Adam, and Alyn Velaryion will all be mixed race (assuming they will all be in the series}. Adam and Alyn are almost certainly Corlys' sons (unless they change it in the series).
  7. Has any character been spotted who might be Leanor Velaryon. If the filming is at least partly related to Laena Velaryon's funeral I would think Leaonor should be there (even though he was murdered shortly thereafter in Spicetown). His physical appearance would be very revealing.
  8. Looks to me to be more dark hair with some gray streaks-perhaps Rhaenys Targaryen-especially if the castle is on Driftmark.
  9. Now that it is clear that filming has begun I was wondering what peoples thoughts are on when the show will start airing. I would think 2021 is really out of the question but sometime in 2022 is much more likely. So what do people think?-Jan or April or sometime in the Fall. It would seem to me that HBO needs to get this on ASAP with all the streaming competitors (Disney + with their Marvel shows, Amazon Plus with LOTR, NetFlix with Witcher and Shadow and Bone, etc.).
  10. They certainly appear as I would envision them from the book. It would have been nice to have seen a clear frontal close-up of Rhaenyra. From what I see she appears as a relatively "mature" Rhaenyra, as I would picture her during the Dance itself or just before it. I wonder if these scenes are being filmed as part of the initial trailer for the show.
  11. She died in 100AC-about a year or so before the Great Council in 101 AC.
  12. Warner Brothers is building a medieval castle set on the shores of Cornwell in England with a Sigel that looks like a slightly modified seahorse. Most probably to represent Driftmark. Personally I think Corlys Velyrion will likely be a major protagonist in the story. Perhaps he will end up being the major "overall" major hero in the story.
  13. Myseria was a prominent paramour of Daemon Targaryen. She became an unofficial mistress of whisperers to Rhaenyra but did not attend council meetings. She was cunning, devious, and ruthless. She died a chilling death in KL after Rhaenyra fled back to Dragonstone at the end of the Dance.
  14. From GRRM's Blog today I wrote hundreds and hundreds of pages of THE WINDS OF WINTER in 2020. The best year I’ve had on WOW since I began it. Why? I don’t know. Maybe the isolation. Or maybe I just got on a roll. Sometimes I do get on a roll. I need to keep rolling, though. I still have hundreds of more pages to write to bring the novel to a satisfactory conclusion. That’s what 2021 is for, I hope. I will make no predictions on when I will finish. Every time I do, assholes on the internet take that as a “promise,” and then wait eagerly to crucify me when I miss the deadline. All I will say is that I am hopeful. I have a zillion other things to do as well, though. My plate is full to overflowing. Every time I wrap up one thing, three more things land on me.
  15. As much as I would like to see otherwise my current perspective is that Daenerys will intentionally burn KL because of the people there not accepting her as a result of her killing Aegon and then demanding complete fealty, which they will refuse to give. I believe she will be progressively seduced by Dark (fire and blood ) Magic and ultimately will attain the moniker used to describe Queen Rhaenyra at the end of her 6 month reign in KL, namely being a "Maegor with Teats". Actually I would not be surprised to see a similar theme in HOTD with Rhaenyra's character/behavior being somewhat whitewashed (as compared to in the book) in the beginning of the series (somewhat similar to Daenerys' egalitarian behaviors initially) but then ultimately will become evil as a result of all the stressors/losses she will have to deal with (similar to Daenerys' deterioration with the stressors/losses she had to deal with). But at least viewers will not be as upset with this as Rhaenyra's behavior/ending is already known as per Fire and Blood (as long as the production is good). History does have a tendency to repeat itself.
