    Valyrian steel armor

    The promised prince.

    A got a silver stag says the special snowflake ends up with Euron's armor.
  3. Excellent point, although it belongs in spoiler tags.
  4. Sounds like a job for a promised prince or a special snowflake.

    Wow, I never noticed that v.17

    Perhaps he had very tall heir, near seven feet?

    The Windblown, Dance 25 Daenerys VI, Dance 43 The Sworn Sword So, there is a chance the old Webber-Osgrey relationship might come into play. Maybe the Windblown Webber is a descendant of cousin Wendel who lost his chance to take Coldmoat when Dunk killed Lucas and Eustace wed Rohanne. If Webber had a child with Eustace (actually Dunk's bastard???) then Coldmoat could be held by House Osgrey. Assuming Osgrey will (unknowingly) side with the Black Dragon once again and the Windblown will side with Daenerys, this sets up another confrontation between Webber and Osgrey.

    How aware is Sansa of Jeyne Poole (TWoW spoilers included)

    I wouldn't be surprised if your assumption here turned out to be true. The George clearly wanted us to know in that moment that Petyr was going to turn Jeyne into a prostitute in the wake of Cersei's purge, and the only way to do that was through the only POV he had left in the Red Keep. Later, the George might have considered that knowledge by Sansa as inconvenient. But she was aware that Jeyne was being turned over to Petyr. She even asked why Jeyne was being turned over to Petyr instead of her father.

    Which has led to speculation that these might be ice dragons, and that the Others might be able to animate them.

    The battle of blood

    I wonder how large the straights are... If Redwyne has a larger fleet, and if the straights are narrow, Euron might hope to limit the larger fleet's maneuverability.

    Why did Varys murder Pycelle?

    Oh, and Varys not only wanted to take down Kevan and Tommen's hope for stability, but also to inflame Tyrell versus Lannister. Pycelle was known to be a Lannister creature.

    Why did Varys murder Pycelle?

    Wasn't Pycelle the one brought Kevan back to King's Landing? And maybe, just maybe, with Tywin and Kevan dead, Pycelle might be expected to quit on Cersei and throw in with House Tyrell. Either way, the old dude was a voice for reason on Tomen's council.

    How aware is Sansa of Jeyne Poole (TWoW spoilers included)

    A very ardent cadre... I suggest you duck. To the cadre: I like Sansa. I am not a hater. I think she is a tragic character. (It's all those damn lemony lemons.)

    The Illyrio/Aegon thing

    No, but I have come to learn that individuals can look at the same set of facts and reach very different conclusions, which is why I respect your opinion even when I disagree with you.

    How aware is Sansa of Jeyne Poole (TWoW spoilers included)

    Sansa witnessed this exchange... Sansa IV, Game 51 So, Sansa should know that Petyr should know what happened to her “truest friend.” But this next bit suggests that Sansa has suppressed that knowledge... Sansa II, Clash 18 We would see that Sansa would go on to recall Jeyne at least three times, but apparently, she never thinks to ask Petyr what happened to her “truest friend” after he agreed to find a place for her outside King’s Landing. Of course, we learn that Petyr has pimped Sansa's “truest friend” into a whore and pawned her off as Arya to Ramsay, who in turn, has abused her savagely. Thanks to Theon, Jeyne has escaped Ramsay, and Stannis then sends her on to Jon Snow at Castle Black with Justin Massey and Tycho Nestoris, both of whom will be traveling on to Eastwatch and Braavos. And we should recall that Jon thinks to send Arya to Braavos if he can... Jon IX, Dance 44 Sending Jeyne on to Braavos with Tycho Nestoris would make sense for all the same reasons. Imagine what "no one" might learn if she meets Jeyne in Braavos...

    Were you you abused as a child? Did your parents yell at you often? Were you bullied?
