  1. Any Frey in a battle should play the odds and take someone for ransom rather than killing them, since, odds are, they are related!!
  2. No they are not. Brienne sees a sapling weirwood, as does Bran and company at the Nightfort. This idea makes less than no sense.
  3. 1) If you count Dragonstone and Summerhall, the Red Keep is not really a single/permanent home. 2) Given the overly martial nature of Westeros, it kind of makes sense, to simplify the story.
  4. “The bad end unhappily; the good, unluckily. That is what tragedy means.” - Tom Stoppard - Yes. This is still a book and GRRM writes fate. The Valyrians had it coming. They earned it.
  5. The same way it happened in The Mystery Knight, someone influenced/bribed the person choosing the match ups.
  6. It was not the kind of lists/bracket system we have seen elsewhere. The tourney was a 'champions tourney.' At the beginning there were five knights, the champions (5 Whents). Knights could challenge one of the 5 and then take their spot. Then at some point it was either halted and each of the 5 left had to challenge each other to determine the final champ... or there were fewer than 5 champions (because of the Knight of the Laughing Tree ousting a few of them then leaving).
  7. @EggBlue We don't know where any of those four were during the Robellion. Period. Vagueness: Walys might have been at Winterfell or not (he may have traveled with Rickard or not, we don't know). As for Richard Lomouth, look for Lonmouth = Lem Lemoncloak theories; those are the only things based on text that references Richard that are of any merit.
  8. Are there any theories about the metaphor of the Crakehall's (boars) being related to the eventual fall of Tommen? (Boar killing Robert, Crakehall killing Tommen?)
  9. GRRM would have used almost all the same words, just arranged in a different order.
  10. This is in no way a small question. We don't know what happened, so pre-judging the situation is both oversimplifying and assuming too much.
  11. GRRM does leave loose ends all the time. The nature of the POV style of the books means there are loose ends everywhere. Chekov's gun is thrown around here too liberally. Chekov mostly wrote plays and short stories (and only one novel), when economy of words and details is absolutely necessary. GRRM tells us more about the foods at a feast than he does about some characters. It is not reasonable to apply Chekov's Gun to every single item and character that appears on the page. Almost the complete opposite would happen in a large epic with limited POVs, because different people inevitably notice different things. If/when it comes up with lots of people, maybe. Once, off-hand, meh. As soon as Tom mentions he had a bastard or two in the Westerlands from 12-14 years ago, we have something. Not every minor detail connects to something. It can't. Other wise the books would be finished....
  12. 1) There is so little to go on: alive, female, has to be old enough. It is not worth the effort since it cannot be figured out. 2) This is a non-starter, since there is nothing in the books that would lead us to this idea. So little to go on, it is just making sh*t up. There is no reason to believe this premise in the first place, so why bother? (How do we know Pod isn't one of Robert's Bastards? He must be because: reasons.)
  13. This should be in the pinned R+L=J topic.
