    Varys Blackfyre hint?

    Yes, I'm not saying that the Targaryens actually know anything about the secrets. I'm saying that the line is a hint from GRRM that Varys has Targaryen heritage. Not because there any actual connection between the two, but as a kind of subtle little hint of throwing that line in the very same chapter we meet the one character in the main series who seems to know everything about the secrets of the Red Keep.

    Varys Blackfyre hint?

    The way to interpret the line isn't that Varys is getting his knowledge of the passages from any sort of actual magical ability; it's just a little subtle hint at his possible heritage. Keep in mind that this line is from the same chapter where Varys makes his first appearance. Obviously he hasn't actually gotten his knowledge of the passages from any Targaryen/Blackfyre heritage, but putting that line just a few pages before Varys shows up is definitely not an accident.

    New Zealand

    This is another in a string of fairly optimistic sounding statements from him about the book lately. It could be nothing, but it's more reason to hope than most other occasions in the past 3 years or so since the 2016 plans turned to ash. I'm ready to believe.

    TWoW - Arya Stark

    Arya is one of the most difficult characters for me to figure out. She's definitely coming back to Westeros at some point, and Justin Massey seems like a distinct possibility, but figuring everything out between now and then is where things get tricky. I think she's in for a few more bits of Faceless Men related tasks between Mercy and her eventual departure, but I'm pretty unsure how everything will play out, aside from knowing that she has to get back to the riverlands at some point to reunite with Nymeria.

    The role of Jon Snow in TWoW

    I suspect that he'll be dead for pretty much the whole book, maybe coming back right near the very end of the book. I don't think he's going to have much of any role in The Winds of Winter. Stannis will deal with the Bolton threat, and the Night's Watch will fall into a bit of a disarray with that powder keg, and then Jon will probably come back right around the time the Wall comes crashing down from Euron blowing the Horn in Oldtown.

    The Regret of Killing Characters

    Of the names mentioned, I feel like Maester Aemon is the most likely candidate. He could have potentially played an important role going forward if he survived. I suppose that Beric is another possibility, or maybe Craster for some info dumping on the Others (although Bran/Bloodraven should be able to manage that just fine), but not too many other names are springing to mind for me.

    What's going to fill the largest part in TWOW?

    I think the Meereen plot will probably have the most chapters, although I'm expecting the Oldtown plot to be very important while not having quite as many chapters (similar to Stannis in A Clash of Kings, for example).

    The perfumed seneschal

    Varys seems like the likeliest bet to me. Reznak is immediately though of by Dany, which kind of means it can't be him in my mind (or else why be vague about it at all). The ship is subtle enough to be what she meant, but it feels like a deliberate red herring put in. Especially when you consider that the ship was wrecked, Tyrion and Moqorro are already mentioned in the previous remarks, and Dany will already be wary of Jorah. That just leaves Penny, but there's no way that Dany could ever connect Penny to the "perfumed seneschal" unless the name of the ship they traveled on specifically comes up (which seems unlikely). Furthermore, it seems to me that Quaithe is simply using a glass candle to observe distant events rather than seeing the future (or else she would know that the "griffin" and "mummer's dragon" would never even make it to Dany. Since none of the characters who travel on the ship were even on the Stinky Steward yet, Varys seems like a much safer bet. He's someone who will probably present himself as a friend to Dany (given that he's been grooming her "nephew" for 16 years), but is secretly a Blackfyre supporter who wants to see her out of the way.

    How would you rate episode 406?

    Definitely the highpoint of the season. The Iron Bank scene was pretty good and the trial was amazing. The attack on the Dreadfort was lame, but all of the Ramsay/Reek scenes were pretty incredible. More than any other episode this one managed to pretty much keep everything up from start to finish. I hope the show can remain around this level for the rest of the way.
