    Prediction for finale

    Jon will get all breathy at some point.The action will slow,the music will stop and Jon will start breathing loudly. But at the same time his breathing will be profound and hugely significant to the overarching narrative.

    Dany's Arc

    I'm glad you've cleared that up for us.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Getting Sneaky

    The Virtues is superb so far.As a person with alcohol issues I can tell you Merchant has nailed it acting wise. That first tentative sip,then the long gulp,then top it up coz you don't want to see the bottom of the glass approaching,then the rest of it. Don't know how he approaches his roles,method or otherwise but he really seemed like a man who'd been on a recent binge right from the off.Either that or he's made a close study of the subject. And wow,skypelord!!

    Seeing the bigger bigger picture.

    Decent Valyrian roads maybe.But they're all in Essos.

    The Hooded Man is Torren Liddle.

    Now my puppy friend,does that mean you don't like repeating yourself or you just want to vomit.Or both?

    Oh I have many issues but trying to bait or troll you is not one of them.I think I may have taken umbrage at the good writer bit. Any counter that simply uses "bad writing" as a defence is inherently weak.A counter argument that uses text to challenge my theory or any component of it would be much stronger,say a suggestion from you as to the HM might be or a piece of text that destroys my theory. That would in fact be welcomed.At the end of the day this is just a theory which is trying to second guess the intentions of a fantasy author.I don't base my self esteem or overall worthiness to the planet on whether I'm correct or not. It's just a bit of fun really.

    Agree with all of that,apart from the last paragraph as you might expect. They are plugged in,even beyond the Wall.But we know Big Liddle is a ranger there.

    The Hooded Man is Torren Liddle.

    Yes he's appeared in the story and appears to be a devoted Stark loyalist.He comes from this kind of stock. That's from Big Bucket Wull,a mountain clan chieftain.But you can ignore him if you like because he barely features in the story either. You can also ignore the lengthy passage upthread where I quoted Torren Little in the hidey hole.I made that all up,it never happened.Same with Big Bucket's speech.Purely my imagination. You are correct in saying George is not a bad writer but you are a truly great reader.

    Yes and one of those lords would be the Liddle.We have already established that the Liddles do use ravens (Maester Aemon sent them one),so would Roose not have sent one to Torren to attend and swear fealty?And would that not have arrived in time for Mance's arrival at Holdfast Liddle?I'm going to have to check my timelines on that one. That's the entire point.There is no description of Torren Liddle or the HM.Why might that be? As TEM pointed out to me the only other significant character who is not physically described in some way is Dalla.

    Football: pool in to the Final Spur of the season

    Yep,he's not a prolific scorer I see.Problematic trying to attract back ups but I suppose that's where your scouting team earns its keep.

    Heresy 221 and the Children of Winterfell

    Please go for it.It would make a refreshing change. If I see much more RLJ stuff I would likely hurl my PC out the window,along with the phone.
