How much do fAegon and fArya matter? in General (ASoIaF) Posted September 25 On 5/9/2020 at 7:51 AM, Here's Looking At You, Kid said: I did not watch your video. I want to be clear with you about that. It is my opinion that Aegon Griffin (Aegon Blackfyre) is important to the real plot of the story. Jeyne played her role and she is done. Fake Arya is the Quentyn in the North. She had a small role that had important consequences to the main characters. Fake Arya was the plot bait that pushed Jon Snow over the edge and caused him to betray the Night's Watch. The consequences will be big. The chaos it caused will make the Wall vulnerable, basically almost undefended. Quentyn acted selfishly and tried to steal the dragons. I am glad he failed and at the same time relieved that the dragons are not sitting ducks for the Harpy to murder. Aegon has a big role to play in the politics of the Seven Kingdoms. He's a pawn in the larger game being played by the Magister and Varys. Daenerys will reveal that lie and how Aegon reacts will determine his fate. But we are a long way from that. Aegon will have a lot of enemies to deal with. The Lannisters, Tyrells, and those who still support the Baratheons will have to be resolved. He will definitely want to punish Jaime and the Baratheons. Aegon may accept a role subordinate to Daenerys. In which case he can become one of her wingmen that we've talked about on this forum. Very much agreed. I see the situation he's stepping into one of a pressure cooker, enemies in all sides closing-in, enemies his team wasn't counting on or is prepared to fight like Euron , enemies that will be ahead of Varys at times, who thrive on rumors, mistrust and chaos (Little Finger, Tyrells even Stannis), self-serving characters with spies planted everywhere (sand snakes / Doran) - also it will not be so easy to get the love of the people due to the Golden Company wanting to get a piece of the plunder and displacing people who already live in certain lands and lords who have the loyalty of their small folk. The faith may represent another problem his plan to get the people on his side if he picks the wrong wife (Arianne not a saint, or as bright as Margaery imo) - Either he turns into tyrant or abdicates for a more experienced person (Daenerys like you said) or loses and Cersie and/or Euron step up on the throne or does something really desperate like try to tame a dragon to secure power and die or unleash a tragedy. I think where this Blackfyre plan went toast was a little after Robert died or maybe Joffrey. When they were alive, the small folk did have a longing Targaryens when the Lannisters where burning the river lands, but after that, their longing probably turned into support of the faith militant which for better or worse has become their champion. It's going to be interesting.
