    Why wasn't fAegon raised in Dorne incognito?

    That's a good idea in principle, but it depends on who they are selling him to- yes, a guy who lived like a peasant is more likely to appeal in a democratic setting, but they need to sell him to any potential allies- powerful lords who might not necessarily be into the whole peasant prince as much as Varys is. After all, Egg wasn't liked by the lords after he made reforms to allow more freedom to smallfolk as lords saw it as an infringement to their rights. Varys and Illyrio need allies in Westeros to back this guy, and even Martells are unsure now- how can they even tell if he's the real deal? I suppose that he wouldn't want to relinquish the control to Martells, that's a good reason. But the whole set up was fairly risky to me, an important heir raised in wilderness with very few attendants- anything could've happened to him between Roberts Rebellion and the events in the last few books. I don't know if he's a Blackfyre, he might well be, but the fact that there are no people who could corroborate Varys' story is telling- the only people in the loop are him, Illyrio and Griff. Babies don't look much like anyone at the age he was supposedly spirited away, so he could be anyone.

    Why wasn't fAegon raised in Dorne incognito?

    It's been a while since I've read fAegon theories, so I hope this wasn't a point that's been discussed to the moon and back. There is a point that kind of sticks out with me when it comes to Aegon that Varys peddles- if he really is the child Elia and Rhaegar had, why wasn't he transported to Dorne and raised there, under the watchful eyes of his mothers family, rather than shipped off to some godforsaken part of Essos on a crappy little barge with very little security, and I don't mean security against any assassins- I mean basic security like not coming across pirates or sailing around Stone Men? Yes, it would be dangerous for Dorne to be harbouring a Targ heir, but he didn't have to be presented as such, we've seen how Ned successfully pulled the wool over everyone's eyes for years, taking Jon and passing him off as his bastard. And that was honourable Ned freaking Stark, a guy who was hardly known for being a ladies man the way his best mate was. Who do we know that had a beloved sister that was dead before her time and at the same time known for being sexually promiscuous and known for having bastards? Oberyn! I'm sure that if it came to sheltering his sisters son by presenting him as his own bastard and then raising him in relative comfort and level of education offered to his "half-sisters" and cousins, he would've jumped at the chance, or left him with Doran the way Robert left Edric Storm with Renly. That way the perfect little Targ heir is raised by his uncle as his dad, and Martells have someone to rally behind when they get a chance. Aegon wouldn't even have to suffer the same problems Jon had, Dorne is far more accepting of bastards, and Sand Snakes are fairly well treated (too well, given their insolence tbh). Now, there is a problem with his potentials Valyrian looks, but purple eyes are not unheard of in Dorne- Daynes are known to have those, and in any case, Dorne is sufficiently close to Essos to explain any Valyrian features in Oberyns offspring- and he is known as a man who likes his variety in women, so he could just say he got him with some Lyseni gal he met at a tavern. He is different from Ned in that he's rash and known to be dangerously cocky and impulsive, but I'm pretty sure he'd understand how much danger his nephew is in if he shoots his mouth off- and there is Doran, the more cautious guy who would give him support. The only few reasons they wouldn't leave him at Dorne is a)security and potential danger to Martells that Doran wouldn't want to chance b ) Varys wouldn't want to give up an important chess piece to other players, and c) the kid has nothing to do with Elia and he wouldn't want to risk Martells finding that out. The first two can be worked around- Varys and Illyrio were ready to commit Vicerys to Martells and Doran was happy to play the convoluted game of trying to bring him and Adrianne together (in which case they should've sent volatile Vicerys somewhere safer than Dothraki plains, where he could meet Arianne in secret, which any Free city qualifies for), and Vicerys is no less important in terms of Targaryen succession than Aegon - in any case, Martells would be more likely to fight for their blood than the unstable son of an unstable father. And the last bit could also be worked around, because Martells wouldn't suspect anything even if the child looked nothing like them or their sister - people don't normally look beyond obvious marks such as eye/hair colour and any prominent mannerisms and features- they could look at any generic Valyrian looking kid and see their sisters only son because it's what they'd want to see. I hope this not completely off the topic, as this is about doubts to fAegon identity. It's been a while since I've discussed fAegon theories so I apologise if my idea isn't new.

    sansa, arya, and dany

    She didn't play a part in his death. He died because he was a dipshit who threatened both the wife and the future heir of the leader of bloodthirsty savages. He was too dumb to live and she had nothing to do with him being stupid. With regards to her claim to the throne, as far as everyone knows she's the last Targaryen. There is no point in trying to predict that she will not step down or that she will based on opinion, rather than evidence. I doubt it will come to a serious contest between Jon and Dany- the most obvious solution would be for them to marry, and a more pressing issue is defeating the white walkers. The only person obsessed with the throne right now is Cersei- everyone else is preparing to survive the long winter.

    Ragger My God He's Heavy Targaryen, First of His Name, Unburnt and Defrosted.

    Tbh, looks like Cersei is making those hats by the bucketload, judging by how much she's loved by the smallfolk.

    Why is Tormund suddenly bringing up the old grudges to Jorah the Explorer? The Mormont family was hunting them down, but guess what, that was fully reciprocated. Snow and Co were hunting them down too, wasn't the whole point of Hardhome that everyone needs to band together? All throughout Tarlys' speech I expected him to come up with "Queen Cersei is going to make Westeros great again!" He's even worse than Walder Frey, because at least Frey was doing his double crossing shit for land, titles and to address his grudges, Tarly is doing it because he's brainwashed by propagnda coming from the new Mad Queen.

    Jaime is a tool. Words cannot describe how I hate Cersei. She needs to die soon, but Jaime would stay loyal until the end. Bronn was wrong to trust Jaime, he should've defected to Tyrion. Cersei would execute him and Jaime won't say a word against his beloved. I don't understand Bronze Yohn either. Or Sansa and Arya for that matters. They spent years waiting to be reunited and now that they are, they fight, playing into Creepyfingers hands. Ghost is keeping Edmure Tully and Roslin Frey entertained. It is known.

    To be fair to Maggie, she was an immigrant to Westeros, and chances are that it was easy for her to slip back into high Valyrian, since the Common Tongue was foreign to her. Or she was intentionally making fun of/misleading Cersei, and who could blame her for that, knowing Cersei and her manner towards everyone. Prophesies in general are mostly misleading, you don't know the context until the events took place, otherwise it would be painfully simple, and "you will be killed by someone's little brother or sister, literally anyone's little brother or sister" doesn't have the same ring to it as "valonqar would wrap his hands around your throats blah blah blah".
