  1. I think he will end up fighting the Others on the front lines, but I don't think he'll formally take the black.
  2. I agree. I have no idea how the current mini-plot with Lady Stoneheart will be resolved, but I do believe that Jaime's character will go on to resolve larger plot issues. He is set up to take out Cersei, help Aegon sit the Iron Throne, and take the Black.
  3. Bloodraven, who sided with the red dragon against the brother he loved, sent Jaime's fallen Kingsguard brothers to hammer home Jaime's crime when he betrayed Aerys, notwithstanding Jaime's defense that Aerys planned to burn King's Landing. Rhaegar reminded him that he left his wife and children in Jaime's hands. Bloodraven seems to be preparing Jaime to raise up Jon, Rhaegar's heir, as king. Jaime I, Feast Jaime identifies with the Warrior... Jaime II, Feast And the Warrior protects children... Samwell II, Storm Jaime wants to make good on his failed duty to protect Rhaegar's children... Jaime I, Dance Jaime doesn't believe that Rhaegar has any living children. But the George strongly hinted that Jamie will be a kingmaker... Jaime II, Feast But perhaps Jaime will believe Aegon's claim? Here is a telling quote from Barristan on his path to redemption after taking Robert's pardon... Daenerys II, Dance And here's Jaime telling Lancel what he thought of Robert... Jaime IV, Feast And note the colors he was wearing... Jaime IV, Feast Black on Red, like the Blackfyre dragon... Assuming Jaime is Cersei's valonqar, this quote would tie in nicely with Jaime unwittingly supporting the black dragon... Cersei II, Feast Of course, I don't think Aegon could allow Jaime to enter his service. I think Jaime will be allowed to take the black as The Ned wanted and as this foreshadows... Catelyn X, Game
  4. Daenerys IX, Game 68 The pronoun “he” above, of course, refers to Drogo, whom Daenerys was about to send off into the night lands. Will Drogo return? Quentyn son of Prince Doran of House Martell, whose sigil is the sun, rose in the west when he left Dorne, and he set in the east when he was killed in Meereen. Our lovely dragon queen notes in Daenerys X, Dance 71, that the Dothraki Sea is going dry. When she sits among her persimmon trees and lemon trees atop the Great Pyramid of Meereen and looks upon the smaller pyramids, she feels as if she is “atop the highest mountain in the world,” thus comparing the pyramids to mountains. Since then, one such “mountain” has collapsed in ruins, and the dragons have turned two more into smoking lairs. That leaves us with Daenerys’s womb quickening again, and her bearing a living child. Even if what Daenerys went through on her recent walk about was a miscarriage, that would not satisfy the elements above. A quickening happens when a mother-to-be can feel the fetus moving. However, since the other elements have been satisfied, and since this is a fantasy filled with prophecy and foreshadowing, I would think that Daenerys’s womb will quicken again, and she will bear a living child, and her son will sit the Iron Throne... Daenerys IV, Game 36 Her son will be Aegon’s... Daenerys I, Game 3 Daenerys VI, Storm 71 (emphasis in the original) Daenerys I, Dance 2 (emphasis in the original) Tyrion VI, Dance 22 The love won’t last, of course... Tyrion I, Clash 3 Arianne I, Winds And Daenerys will vanquish Aegon... The Ugly Little Girl, Dance 64 Daenerys was the first head. Aegon, red with rust, is revealed to be the second. Jon will be revealed to be the third. Although a dragon is still a dragon whether it is black or red, Aegon is the mummer’s dragon... Daenerys V, Clash 63 And Daenerys will slay the fraud... Daenerys IV, Clash 48 So, the wee Targlet will live, but Daenerys won’t... Daenerys IV, Clash 48 The last fire Daenerys will light will be the one that is lit to consume her lifeless body after she dies giving birth to her child, a fire to love. Drogo will not return to Daenerys, but Daenerys will return to Drogo. Consider the three mounts she must ride, "one to bed and one dread and one to love." Most of us suspect the first is her silver with Drogo to the grassy place beside a small stream, and that the second is Drogo’s namesake Drogon. The George loves his threes, so I goat a gold dragon says the third one will be the smoky stallion Daenerys will ride to join her sun-and-stars in the Night Lands.
  5. Several weeks before arriving at the Twins for the Red Wedding, Robb dispatched Maege Mormont and Galbart Glover with a detachment of troops to Greywater Watch to prepare an assault on the Ironborn at Moat Cailin with Howland Reed. Maege and Galbart knew of Robb's desire to name Jon as his heir, believing that Bran, Rickon, and Arya were dead and Sansa wed to a Lannister. About three months later, we hear from a younger Mormont... Jon I, Dance We know that Dacey went south with Maege and the Young Wolf, and that Lyra and Jorelle went south with Maege. Through Jon's musings, the storyteller suggests to us that Maege left Alysane as castellan when she marched south, and we find out later that Alysane joined Stannis after burning Asha's ships at Deepwood Motte, and that Lyra and Jorelle are still with Maege. Did Maege return to Bear Island clandestinely, or did Alysane act on her own? If Maege did not return, how did Lyanna know Jon STARK was the King in the North? (Bran and Rickon were presumed dead, so to what other STARK could she have been referring?) If Maege returned to give Alysane the order to burn Asha's ships, did she then leave again with Lyra and Jorelle leaving Lyanna at Bear Island? Or did Maege perhaps remain at Bear Island with Lyra and Jorelle? And where is Galbart Glover? Again through Jon, the storyteller suggests that he should have gone with Maege to free Deepwood Motte... Jon I, Dance Galbart is not wed, but his brother's wife and children were captured when Asha seized Deepwood Motte. Or are Maege and Galbart just chillin' in the swamp at Grewater Watch? I just can't believe they sat around for three months with Bolton and Frey marching north, the Ironmen occupying Deepwood Motte, and Bear Island further threatened by the Ironmen.
  6. The author has already suggested the answer... After leaving Harrenhal but before returning to rescue Brienne Jaime had a dream. We know this dream was inspired by Bloodraven since Jaime rested his head on a weirwood stump. He is forced down into a cave by hooded figures brandishing spears. (A foreshadowing of Jaime's coming encounter with Catelyn) He is shoved into a pit with Brienne, who fears a bear. (A foreshadowing of Jaime's rescuing the maiden not so fair later in the (chapter) Tywin, Joffrey, and Cersei then appear. This predates the Red Wedding so Tywin and Joffrey are still alive at this point, but he and Joffrey will soon die, suffering deaths for which Jaime must later feel some blame, since he released Tyrion, who killed Tywin, and he was the Lord Commander of Joffrey's Kingsguard but unable to protect him. And of course Jaime is the leading candidate to be Cersei's valonqar. So this might be a foreshadowing of deaths of Tywin, Joffrey and Cersei. The trio departs but not before Tywin gives Jaime a sword. Keep in mind that the sword Tywin actually gives to Jaime is one of two made from Ice and Jaime gives his sword, in turn, to Brienne. In the dream Brienne gets a sword like Jaime's and they both burn--silvery blue, like ice, real ice, not the sword of course, but the allusion is there. Then Bloodraven, who sided with the red dragon against the brother he loved, sent Jaime's fallen Kinsguard brothers to hammer home Jaime's crime when he betrayed Aerys, notwithstanding Jaime's defense that Aerys planned to burn King's Landing. Rhaegar reminded him that he left his wife and children in Jaime's hands. Bloodraven seems to be preparing Jaime to raise up Jon, Rhaegar's heir, as king. Jaime I, Feast Jaime identifies with the Warrior... Jaime II, Feast And the Warrior protects children... Samwell II, Storm Jaime wants to make good on his failed duty to protect Rhaegar's children, but Jaime doesn't believe that Rhaegar has any living children. Jaime I, Dance But the George strongly hinted that Jamie will be a kingmaker... Jaime II, Feast Perhaps Jaime will believe Aegon's claim? Here is a telling quote from Barristan on his path to redemption after taking Robert's pardon... Daenerys II, Dance And here's Jaime telling Lancel what he thought of Robert... Jaime IV, Feast And here is what he was wearing when he said that... Jaime IV, Feast Black on Red, like the Blackfyre dragon. Assuming Jaime is Cersei's valonqar, this quote would tie in nicely with Jaime unwittingly supporting the black dragon... Cersei II, Feast Then we get this moment in Baelor's Sept (keep in mind that Bloodraven is associated with mist)... Jaime I, Feast So we see that as a mist forms about Tywin's corpse, a man so intimately associated with the deaths of Rhaegar's children, Jaime wants to gag on a sweet rotten stench. It seems to me that Jaime will turn on his family, and Cersei in particular. Tyrion II, Dance This could foreshadow Queen Daenerys, not Cersei, feeding Jaime to Drogon. But note that Drogon is black, if Aegon and Daenerys ally before they dance, and if Jaime helps Aegon ascend to the throne by killing Cersei, perhaps Aegon's Queen Daenerys will allow Jaime to take the black.
  7. Hopefully, neither R+L=J nor Aegon Blackfyre will be spelled out literally. If it must be done, let's hope it is not revealed by Illyrio... "I am your father" has been done before.
  8. The main reason for the Quentyn subplot could be to give Dorne a reason not only to favor Aegon, but also to resent Daenerys in the upcoming dance. Weren't Gerris and Archibald freed? Shouldn't we expect them to return home to share their side of the story with Dorne?
  9. We already have met her. And Tyrion will too... Cat of the Canals, Feast 34 To be brazen is to be bold and without shame. To brazen is to endure an embarrassing or difficult situation by behaving with apparent confidence and lack of shame. And this Brazen Monkey is small. Remind you of anyone? A “twisted little monkey demon,” perhaps? Tyrion VII, Dance 27 Cat of the Canals, Feast 34 So, the little Brazen Monkey from Westeros is looking for a whore, wherever whores go, and Arya directs him to the Sailor’s Wife and pretty little Lanna... Cat of the Canals, Feast 34 Recall that the Sailor’s Wife “only beds the ones who marry her.” And here we learn a bit about Lanna... Cat of the Canals, Feast 34 That’s a lot of information about a bit character, no? Now, here’s the kicker... Appendix, Feast Yes, Lanna is the pretty, little, golden-haired, 14 year-old daughter of the Sailor’s Wife, for whom Merry charges extra. Tyrion VI, Game 42 Lanna is worth more... just like a Lannister. Although the author gave us a physical description of Lanna, He hasn't given us a physical description of the Sailor's Wife. Tyrion III, Clash 15 I got a dragon says the Sailor's Wife has dark hair and blue eyes. And check this out... Cat of the Canals, Feast 34 Compare Dareon’s brazen outfit to the brazen, twisted little monkey demon’s... Tyrion IV, Dance 14 Cat of the Canals, Feast 34 Like I said, that’s a lot of detail for a bit character. Doesn't the development of this subplot demand resolution? Tyrion IV, Dance 14 SSM, George R.R. Martin Skyping Croatian Fans (17:53) Tyrion I, Dance 1 Tyrion’s head is going to freaking explode! And maybe then we'll find out what grand gift the Sealord of Braavos gave to Penny and Oppo. Tyrion VIII, Dance 33 There's a reason that thread was not sewn up.
  10. I think the George has been developing the backstory for the eggs since before Game was published.
  11. And floppy straw hat this summer, unless your hair grows back, in which case you can die it green and say you're Tyroshi.
  12. "Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you."
