    Renly would have been worse than Joffrey? How so? I have a suspicion that you may be a troll.

    Why did The Hound stop The Mountain from killing Loras?

    Most and Least Knightly Acts in ASOIAF. The title of the thread says it all. My most knightly act of the series is an ironic choice because the deed is done by Brienne of Tarth, who honored her vow to protect the weak, by defending the orphans from some of Westero's worst monsters. Compare her act to the Knight of Saltpans who sat in his castle, as "The Hound" ravages the town. Brienne is the definition of a knight. A close second is a minor, yet gallant act. During the wedding between Sansa Stark and Tyrion Lannister, Ser Garland is one of the few people who is actually nice to Sansa, and his dance with the terrified, young maid is the highlight of her night. Ser Garland is similarly kind to Tyrion, and goes so far to defend him in front of the Incest King. My least knightly act of the series, would probably be Ser Gregor's brutal campaign throughout the Riverlands, which featured such atrocities as rape, torture, and forced auto-cannibalism. Compare this with Ser Arthur's Dayne campaign throughout the Kingswood. I was tempted to list Ser Quincy Cox as least cowardly act, and while cowardice is generally a bad trait for a knight, sadism is much worse. One of my favorite themes in ASOIAF is how many of the characters who exhibit knightly qualities are not actually knights. Examples of this are Brienne of Tarth, Sandor Clegane, and "Ser" Duncan the Tall.

    Did you forget the part where LF sold Sansa to the Boltons? Did you forget where he killed Lysa Arryn? How about the part where he gave Lysa poison (tears of lys) to kill Jon Arryn? Or How about the part where he lied about Jon Arryn's murder to start the war between the Lions and the Wolves. Or how about when he lied to Catelyn about who tried to kill Bran. It was his dagger, but he pinned it on Tyrion in order to cause hostilities between Winterfell and Casterly Rock. LF purposely caused the WOFK, which led to the deaths of most of Sansa's family. LF got what he deserved.

    So Lord Tarly betrays his liege lord for the Lannisters but refuses to bend the knee to Dany because she is a foreign invader? Dany is of House Targaryen who ruled the 7K for over 300 years, until the Baratheons usurped the Iron Throne. In fact, House Targaryen raised the Tyrells to the position of Warden of the South and gave them Highgarden. If given the choice between serving Cersei, who murdered the Tyrells and destroyed the Faith of the Seven at the Sept of Baelor, or serving Dany, I would choose Dany. His liege lord was Olenna and she declared for the Targaryens. Lord Tarly reminded me of Tywin, when he was addressing Tyrion. I think that Tywin would have bent the knee to save his own hide.

    What will happen to Stannis in TWOW?

    Stannis and craven cannot exist in the same sentence.

    I forgot about Jorah the Explorah. He would be an excellent LC. There is no precedent for anyone from Essos, serving in the KG. In fact, besides Sandor Clegane, every member of KG have been a knight. That rules out dothraki, unsullied, and Daario. If Dany hooks up with Jon, I'm sure that he could round up a few northern knights who would serve. I know that the north typically do not have a tradition of knighthood, but there are some knights north of the neck. House Manderly, House Condon, House Mormont, and I believe House Ryswell have all produced knights. Dany's ancestor, Visenya is the one who introduced the concept of KG to Westeros. It would be foolish of her not to continue the tradition, or to change precedent in order to place Dothraki or Eunuchs in the order.

    What happened to Cersei's Queensguard. Historically, they have served for life. Is Ser Gregor considered a member of the order? And what of the Lord Commander, Ser Kingslayer? He doesn't wear his white cloak anymore. I understand why Jon left the NW. His "death" and resurrection allowed him an out on a technicality. It seems to me that the show runners are just making it up as they go along. The KG paid a pivotal role in the first few seasons. It doesn't appear that Cersei has replaced Ser Merwyn after Arya etched him off of her list and what about Ser Loras? Forgive me if I'm missing something, but how was he to marry Cersei? Did the king absolve him of his vows? Even so, after he was murdered at the Sept of Baelor with the rest of his family, who replaced him on the KG? Is the only known member of the KG, Ser Gregor? I guess he's big enough to count for seven men. I think Dany needs her own Queensguard. For obvious reasons, she shouldn't use any Dothraki or Unsullied for that role. Tyrion should advise her to elevate knights from prominent houses to serve her in the capacity of QG.

    I see that you attended the Stannis Baratheon school of grammar. I, Ser Snowflake of the Social Justice Warriors nominate you for post of the day.

    On a re-watch of episode 1, Season 7, when Cersei and Jaimie were observing the Greyjoy fleet, Cersei referred to our favorite pirate as King Euron. This is not consistent with Cersei's behaviour. One of her titles is Queen of the 7K and protector of the realm. Why is she acknowledging another King in her realm? The Lannisters went to war with Stannis and Robb because they both declared themselves king. This is a problem that I had with the books as well. The Lannisters went to war with House Stark, Tully, and Baratheon over a crown; yet they do nothing when House Greyjoy renounce the Iron Throne. Cersei should have commanded Euron to bend the knee or face the Mountain. I'm calling it right now......Euron will be the cause of Cersei's death. The Greyjoys are all traitors and cutthroats. Dany is making the same mistake by trusting Yara (Asha). When Aegon, the first of his name, landed on Westeros, He sent out ravens declaring that there would only be one king.

    The only way to circumvent Moat Caitlin is with a navy. Cersei is currently without a fleet. Even if she allies herself with Euron, she has a closer enemy to worry about.....her brother and the dragon queen. There is a reason why the North is the last kingdom of the First Men. The Andals had ships then, but they never once conquered the North. If Jon didn't have the WW to worry about, he would be in the most secure position of all the claimants. Jon should build a fleet to protects his flanks and fortify the Moat.

    Cersei has bigger problems than Sansa at the moment. I suspect that she will be preoccupied with keeping Dany's fine a** off of the Iron Throne. The Lannisters doesn't have the logistics to mount a campaign in the north.....especially with it being winter and all. If I was Jon, I would fortify Moat Caitlin to shore up the southern defense, and concentrate all of my attention on confronting the Night's King.

    Ned was dumb.....I'll give you that. But to say that Ned didn't inspire loyalty is just not true. Ned was very much loved throughout the North and the wider realm. In the books, a son of House Dayne was named after Ned because of the love his parents had for Ned. The Mountain clans also speak highly of Ned Stark. Ned should have never went south of the neck. The North wouldn't have to remember shit because they would have never lost Winterfell and the Red Wedding would have never happened. Roose wouldn't have even dreamed of rebellion against the Starks if Ned was still alive.

    This. 1. Dragonstone is fairly close to KL, Euron could have taken the fortress and held it against Dany. Cersei doesn't have much of a fleet, but at the time of her palaver with Euron, she knew where Dany was heading. Cersei and Jaimie discussed where the dragon would most likely land in the preceding scene. LOL 2. Dragonstone should not have been abandoned. Why not have Stannis loyalists still holding the castle in his name? Stannis held DS for 15 years, after Robert's Rebellion. It makes no sense that a fortress with the history of DS to be simply left abandoned. If Stannis abandoned his stronghold when he marched on the wall, Cersei should have seized it. 3. It is not believable that Euron have a 1000 fleet navy. There are no trees on the Iron Islands, and to my knowledge, Euron has not been raiding Westeros at all at this point. Where did he get his armada? 4. If Euron has 1000 ships, he could easily take KL. I don't think Cersei has much when it comes to ships. She definitely doesn't have anything to fuck with a 1000 ship armada. What is stopping Euron from seizing KL with his huge armada? 5. Cersei has nobody outside of KL and the Westerlands supporting her. She killed off the HIgh Septon, The Lord of Highgarden, his heir and Queen Margery. The Faith still have members throughout the realm, and Highgarden commands a huge army. There is no way that Cersei should be able to hold on to the Iron Throne. Who is supporting her besides Qyburn, the Mountain, and her one handed brother? There is such thing as making too many enemies. The North would never support her. Ditto for the Riverlands. Littlefinger betrayed her by harboring Sansa, so the the Vale won't support her. Ditto for Dorne, the Reach, and the Stormlands. And finally Euron is unreliable and just as likely to betray her than to ally with her.

    The thing with the Faceless Men is that they are VERY expensive. It's said in the books that the costs of hiring one faceless man is equal to the amount it would take to hire an army. Tywin would have to sacrifice a huge part of his wealth to kill one person. The Faceless Men are the elite assassins of Planetos and to hire one of them, one has to part with the greatest part of what they find valuable and most people aren't willing to do that. It's easier to hire cheaper, less talented assassins. Regarding Tywin......I forget about how it went down in the show, but in the books......Tywin didn't really believed the hype about the Dragon Queen beyond the Narrow Sea. Most people simply think she is a rumor, spread by drunken sailors.
