  1. You mean Brienne? Do you believe Stoneheart hanged her and then gave her the kiss, she raised and when Jaime met her in ADWD she already is a zombie? I can understand this, but not zombie Jaime. Stoneheart wants him dead, if Brienne really kills him why would Stoneheart bright him back as a fire wight?

  3. I don't understand why they should care, at all. Even Harwin, who knew her since forever and was a northmen, is in favor of the idea of ransom for her so why Lem, a complete stranger to Arya, like the others you mention, would care for her just because she was the niece of the teenager girl who pretended to be a knight at Tourney of Harrenhal? I don't see how his attitude can be seem as contradictory. As I said in my first comment on this post, Lem is a broken man with a crooked past who seeks a new life with Beric and the others, and in this new life they need money. Arya could be a source for it and Lem doesn't give a shit about who her aunt was, she's in a past Lem wants to run away from. Why should the Woods Witch know about Lyanna and Jon? Do you mean the theory that Rhaegar met the witch and she was the one who told him to go after Lyanna, or then Rhaegar tell her his intentions? I don't believe in this theory, nothing in the books suggests it. But I'm curious, if you believe that Daenerys is the daughter of Rhaegar and Ashara, who are Jon's parents?
  4. I see no reason for Lem to recognize Arya, as far as we know he has never met her before. And when he met her she was a skinny, dirty, and badly dressed ten-year-old girl pretending to be a boy in the middle of nowhere. Even Harwin, a man from Winterfell who knew her, did not immediately recognize her in the same chapter where Arya meets Lem. So why would Lem relate a ragged boy to a 14-15 teenager he met 15 years ago?
  5. I would say he is. Maybe not in height, but in weight. Loras is described as being thin and slender whereas Jaime is muscle. But if there is doubt about Jaime, I don't think there can be about Ser Hoster Frey, who was also defeated by Loras. Ser Hoster inherited the Crakehall physique and is described as a husky man with a jut of jaw and arms thick with muscle.
  6. Brienne defeated Loras in a melee, not jousting. And even though Loras had cheated in his jousting with the Mountain, he was still a teenager who at edge of fifteen had defeated, jousting, a grown man like Jaime Lannister in a tourney the year before and others men in the Hand's tourney.
  7. I don't think so, I mentioned Tyrion because it happens to him constantly, but asoiaf isn't strange to put characters in likely death situations in which they left only injuried. Brienne, Theon, Asha, Sandor, Jon himself, Sam, are some examples. It's happens a lot with Arya too, and her case it's as bad as Tyrion, or worst, since she is child. The things she went through in ACOK...
  8. If he were to be resurrected and go back to exactly the way he was before I would agree with you, but the way Martin brought another character back from the dead is precisely why, for me, Jon's return it's a good choice. Catelyn was completely changed in character when she was resurrected, her role in the story has changed drastically and this is a possibility that I find very interesting to apply to Jon. Jon dealing with the chaos that must reign on the Wall after his death, the succession crisis of Winterfell, his true origin, Daenerys and the threat of the Others with the tormented mind of someone who has passed through death and returned is something that makes me very excited for the next book. Martin said The Winds of Winter will have a lot of dark chapters, Jon should be one of the characters that should provide that. I know to many readers this reasons aren't enough, but I loved.
  9. For a number of reasons, but the main one is: Martin has complained more than once about how common in fiction it is for characters to be often placed in life-threatening situations, but we never really fear for them because they are heroes and heroes always get saved. He wants his story to be different, he wants us to fear for his characters, and he wants his characters suffer the consequences for their actions. Even if Martin doesn't always do it - cough cough Tyrion cough cough. And while leaving a seriously injured character at the end of a play to continue to reveal that he survived is a recurring cliffhanger, he's not always consistent.
  10. He seems to lose consciousness the moment he was hit by the fourth time. He may have just passed out instead of dying, but we don't know if the blows stopped there. Hm, I don't know. To be honest, I think the possibility that he was only injured would be an act of cowardice on the part of the writer.
  11. Yeah, I wonder if the blood pooled on his penis as well and turned black, just like his hands, since it's also an extremity. Poor man.
  12. I could just write "capable of have children" but
  13. So, it's fair to think that if Melisandre ressurrect Jon by R'hllor's power just like Thoros of Myr did to Beric, Jon will be in the same condition. He will be a wight animated by fire with no blood flowing through his veins. So how can he get a erection and have sex with Dany, Sansa, Val or anybody? Will be this the doom of Jonerys?
  14. Yes, she does. Catelyn already suspected that Cersei and Jaime had something to do with Bran's fall. In ACOK, she confronts Jaime and he confesses. She knows it. Brienne was on guard duty while Catelyn interrogated Jaime and listened the talk. In ASOS she throws it in Jaime's face.
  15. If Lem is really Richard Lonmouth he may also have information about Harrenhal and the knight of the laughing tree. Lonmouth was determined to unmasking the KOLT and, as he was one of Rhaegar's men, when Aerys ordered his son to look for the KOLT Lonmouth may have participated in the searches. If the KOLT was Lyanna, Lonmouth might provide valuable information about Rhaegar and Lyanna's interactions at Torney of Harrenhal.
  16. I believe Lem Lemoncloat/Richard Lonmouth is another man broken by the war who lost everything that gave sense to his life. If he fought for Rhaegar, his friend and prince, he lost; if he fought for Robert, he won but still lost his wife and daughter. Thoros and Beric gave him a chance of a new life and Thoros, as a old and good friend, didn't exposed him.
  17. I really hope that if Howland Reed is the KOLT it wasn't because Bran skinchanged him. Skinchange a person is an abomination. Varamy's prologue show us that is basically a mental rape. Holdor it's mental broken so it may be easy for Bran skinchange him but Holdor doesn't like it and fears it. The quote that said when Bran skinchange him Holdor retreats to a place where Bran cannot reach him its one of the saddest in ADWD. I don't think Howland would fell bless at all.
  18. Well, Aerys sent Rhaegar to look for the knight of the laughing three when he disappeared so Rhaegar kind of had no choice.
  19. Yeah. Loras Tyrell, for example, is described as a thin, muscle-less boy who at edge of fifteen, jousting, brought down adult men who were much stronger than he was.
  20. The point isn't whether or not to change Lyanna's story, it's simply Ned not wanting to comment on something his sister did that he probably didn't approve of and that would still be considered scandalous by most people, a woman pretending to be a knight. He asked Howland to keep it a secret? Maybe. But if the KOLT were Howland himself, there's less reason why he shouldn't reveal it.
  21. 'Cause Martin whats us to speculate KOLT's identity, maybe? And Ned might not have approved of Lyanna's actions in disguising herself as a knight and participating in a tourney and he didn't want anyone else to know.
  22. Daenerys using the word "stealing" to refer to Lyanna's kidnapping doesn't mean that she believes Lyanna was raped by Rhaegar, especially given the context in which Daenerys uses that expression. Daenerys was going to marry Hizdahr, a political arrangement, and she not only doesn't love Hizdahr but is also in love with another, Daario. So she thinks she would like Daario steal her like Rhaegar did to Lyanna. Daario would be stealing Daenerys 'cause she was already betrothed to another guy, but it would be something she'd like 'cause she wants him. Daenerys most likely applies this to Lyanna's abduction.
