  1. Is Selyse Florent Baratheon's hair color ever described in the books? On the show it appears to be reddish or brown with a red cast, but it's hard to tell for sure. TIA
  2. The sudden shift in subject left Davos uneasy. "Sword?" "A sword plucked from fire, yes. Men tell me things, it is my pleasant smile. How shall a burnt sword serve Stannis?" "A burning sword," corrected Davos. I believe that Davos' correction is...incorrect. The sword is a man and the man is burned. Our Hound (involuntarily) gave his face to the fire, the same way Varys (involuntarily) gave his private parts. Both seem to have gotten messages in the flames from the Red God. Thoughts on the Red Sword of Heroes being more metaphorical than a particular metal sword? I think Clegane qualifies in many ways.

    No mention this season regarding "who should get the Dreadfort"

    Pretty sure that Sansa is keeping it to give to either her second son (first son gets Winterfell). She might even give it to Sandor Clegane if she needs to Lord him up before she puts a handfast ribbon on it.
  4. As Jorah once told Dany right after Drogo died, that competing khals would kill her baby by Drogo and start raping her and impregnating her with THEIR heirs. The animal kingdom is littered with examples of infanticide. A new alpha male often starts off his "reign" by killing the offspring of the defeated alpha. Those children are a waste of his resources and efforts and if the mother is nursing them, she's not bearing and nursing his children. Similarly, the entire first book addresses how much Cat loathes bastard Jon as a potential threat to Robb, Bran and Rickon. If Rhaegar had won at the Trident and brought Lyanna to court as queen, there is immediately massive tension between the northernmost kingdom and Dorne. Could he control them or would it devolve into civil war, with each side fighting for their Aegon to have an advantage for the throne.
