  1. You have to love a classic re-read, or re-listen to the audio book. Somehow I did not give much though to Mya Stone's claim to the Iron Throne in my first or second read through - only Gendry's. But how not? Sure, the male is the traditional next in line, but traditions are always broken. The Targaryens, Balon Greyjoy naming Asha, Dornish law, and even Stannis naming Shireen are examples of women heirs. What a great match she would make with Jon Snow. The irony of Lyanna & Rheagar's son marrying Robert's daughter Thoughts on her getting more involved in Winds, or dare I say DoS?
  2. I'm listening to the GoT audio book so don't have the exact quotes, but I'm wondering your thoughts on if Ser Hugh was killed by Ser Gregor simply because he enjoys killing or because Cersei or Jaime wanted it done. We get a Sansa chapter where she learns how The Hound receieved his burns. The Hound indicates Ser Hugh's death was essentially for fun. His brother noticed the opening around Hugh's neck and aimed there to kill. The next chapter we have Ned speaking with Ser Barristan and Ned speculates to himself that it could have been a strategically placed lance to keep Ser Hugh permanently quiet concerning what he knew of Jon Arryn's discoveries. I know people die in tournaments, but this seems more likely incentivised by the Lannisters or to quench Gregor's thirst for blood.
  3. There's a whole lot of certainty in those words. Imagine being one of the poor rangers accompanying LC BR on the range only to find out he left his piece at home. Regardless of age, VS always serves a purpose.
  4. I've always envisioned the NK lurking up beyond the wall in the books, I find it hard to believe there's no leadership amongst those creatures. For the sake of this thread being DS and Blackfyre specific, I'll change that NK wielding DS to any White Walker that was present and defeated Lord Commander Brynden Rivers during his ranging. Imagine a late chapter of WoW ending with a POV character getting an up close encounter, possibly fighting a WW who has DS
  5. I'm trying not to overthink things and hope GRRM is giving us very subtle yet obvious hints that will bear fruit. There's a ton of room for error with any Blackfyre prediction, but I'm going with Young Griff based on the conversation Tyrion overheard where "sword" was mentioned in another language.. and calling it a day. Plus it's last known whereabouts was in Essos. Dark Sister seems more obvious, no? GRRM confirmed Bloodraven took Dark Sister to The Wall. The only way I could have seen it staying at The Wall is if BR entrusted Aemon with it, but he would have mentioned something to Sam before his death. I'm thinking the highest likelihood is Bran recieves it as a parting gift from BR when his training is complete, either to give to Jon or Meera. Where it ends up from there is to be determined. Oh no.. a terrifying landing spot for Dark Sister could be The Night King after defeating BR in a battle while he was Ranging with the NW.
  6. Good Evening from Philadelphia! First post in over 5 years but couldn't resist getting a little Dark Sister/Blackfyre whereabouts conversation ignited after finishing Fire & Blood. It's been discussed before but I didn't see a thread which had not been archived, so here we are.. Blackfyre I'm convinced it's in Young Griff's possession and I'm excited about it. I'm excited because I like to think he is actually Aegon and honestly depending upon how he does it l, wouldn't mind seeing him run the show when all is said and done. Dark Sister I'm convinced it's in the cave with Bloodraven and Bran. Possible landing spots for DS I would love to see in order: 1. BR > Bran > Jon > Arya 2. BR > Bran > Jon (Longclaw given to either Jorah, Tormund, Mance, or Ed) 3. BR > Meera I don't see Dany/Dark Sister happening, but if it did, my dream wildcard would be: Dany > Barristan I suppose this is actually a slim possibility if Meera were given the sword and fell in battle either against the White Walkers, or in a 7 kingdoms battle(Ramsay). If Dany/Barristan were to align with Jon for a common cause, Barristan could get his hands on DS after all. Would love to hear any new/recycled theories!
  7. You go ahead and take the word of a couple Hollywood producers with the biggest money making machine of recent memory in their possession; I'll remain skeptical. :cheers:
  8. I agree with Red completely. I think Jon's cliffhanger is the one I wouldn't have minded being ruined though. Blue might be right too. But I don't even think she knows it yet lol. I think she left Stannis in fear for her life after learning of his men deserting him. Maybe after the revival she'll put the pieces together - for now, you're just ahead of the curve.
  9. You're not alone here-it was such a powerful scene to be irrelevant. Plus the parentage. I'm honestly dissapointed with myself even to consider the fact that he's gone. I did see in Kit's interviews that he is saying Jon is definitely dead. Let Jon be dead-but let one of the other hero aliases be born :eek: If book 6 is 1200 pages and contains many loose ends it will probably mean 7 will match in length. I find it hard to believe they go 7 seasons. I think after 6 comes out it will be an eye opener to DnD that they should start casting additional characters like Aegon, Victarion, Euron, Howland, etc.
  10. Her alligiance is to one thing, R'hllor. She will be loyal to whoever she thinks will be best suited to fight the others. Her fleeing Stannis in the show makes her look like a traitor, but she remained at the wall in the book.
  11. Based on Jon's parentage buildup this season (LF, Stannis), the revelation of his sword's capabilities vs the others, Mel fleeing Stannis back to the Wall, and the overall fact that the show would truly be hopeless with him, I refuse to believe Jon will not be back. Run on sentence....? Yes
