    dany

    He won't give it to her after he learned what happened to Sam's family.

    dany and sansa

    I feel like that line that was cut off is significant, about Sansa respecting her or... Jon doesn't get that its a threat. They are making him dumb as a post for Dany

    Inheritance rights to the North in the show

    Torrhen knelt and became a Lord, upon leaving the seven Kingdoms the Lord became the King again. That was the line of succession. They subverted the line of succession for Jon

    Inheritance rights to the North in the show

    As of yet no Queen in the North but the show Lords don't seem opposed to it. Your position is that Jon was chosen for male preference but his biggest supporter is Lyanna Mormont. That is not it. Why they chose Jon instead of Sansa is never stated. Especially when Sansa brought the Vale and has a blood link to the Riverlands. None of which Jon has. Sansa is Lady of Winterfell, not for the time being. Until she dies. Its her castle. And a king without a castle is a big deal, it means you have no lands upon which to draw direct taxation, it means you have no army directly under your control, you also don't have a fortress to rule from. I don't argue he has Stark and Targaryen blood. I'm arguing that the writers will sidestep this nonsensical inheritance by revealing it when its clear he would otherwise have no influence.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    If Danaerys kills Gendry. Danaerys is a dead woman walking. Arya has listed people for less

    Inheritance rights to the North in the show

    Robb wasn't voted King in the North. He was Torrhen's heir and so King when the North broke away from the seven Kingdoms. Torrhen knelt, Robb rose. Electing Jon by passing over his trueborn sister is unprecedented. The Ironborn vote leaders, the North do not. This seems to have happened in the show because there is no will from Robb and its nonsense. Jon was a King without a castle. Given power by his Lords and now they've opened the door to those Lords just choosing another monarch at any point. Succession stability has been undermined. The writers do not care about this however. The way I see it, they will ignore all this, bring out Jon's true heritage and they'll think that has fixed it.

    How is Daenerys’ army being supplied?

    Its called a supply train for a reason, they need to keep coming. Dany has lost control of both Dorne and the Reach with her allies deaths, But as has been said, it won't be acknowledged, the same way Dragonstone was empty to walk right in to.
  8. Targaryens have a tendency to hype up their special-ness only for them to be brought back down to earth as the mortals they are

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Are they though? It takes two to tango and everything seems to have come from Argella besides the name. If anything the name just hides what they really are, the Storm Kings. Its a nice bookend for that era of the story. The family will likely get another cycle soon as Stannis and Shireen repeat the Argilac and Argella story. Defeated in battle, betrayed by her own people. Then another bastard to take control.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Seems like a set up for the Rebellion. The conquest started with what happened to Argilac and Argella, their descendant put an end to the Targaryens but they had been itching for their moment.

    [spoilers] Aerea

    I don't get how it would be. I think it is perhaps an inversion of Arya hiding inside Balerion. Or maybe Rhaegal will whisk her away at some point.

    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    I would say the drop off is symptomatic of the writers being ready to move on for a long time. This last season was evidential of there rush towards the end, creating unearned developments and relationships. It was all plain sailing until the Red Wedding and the Pink Wedding but after that they started taking a cleaver to the source material. They don't want Aegon so Dorne is useless. They didn't really want the Iron Islands so Euron is poorly realised to replace the mad villainy of Joffrey and Ramsey. They wanted out on the Stannis story and so that ended like a damp squib. They also have preferences not supported in the text, namely Cersei and Sansa. Sansa disappears from the last 2 books as she spends her time eating lemoncakes. Yet they kept her and gave Bran a season off, which seems to have been a big mistake as his evolution is inexplicable. Arya barely gets any time in last 2 books but they hack at her story even more until there is basically nothing. Each episode could have been a different learning task in season 5 but as it is she just sweeps up and washes dead people. Now she's back and can do all these things and people are left wondering where she learned those things. They were meant to show us in the rich culture of Braavos, instead it was just miserable. I love Cersei scenes and she does become more prominent as the series goes on but they've done so much for Lena that isn't shown in the books. She's always been at the forefront and we've always known her point of view.

    The Long Night Casts Two Leads

    Who is to say the First Men weren't skinchanging dragons? The gift having become suspicious in the North by the time the Targaryens showed up?

    The Dayne Heir(ess)- Daenerys

    Where is the evidence Ashara was older than Edric Dayne's father? Because if she isn't, Edric is still the heir even if this conspiracy is true.

    sansa, arya, and dany

    They can get rid of Jon and declare Sansa Queen. What exactly can Dany do? Sure we talk about the North being at the greatest threat but Dany has seen it. She can't pull a Cersei and expect to win by waiting for the North to be exterminated. The North has as much leverage as she does. Its the same choice Jon has, she can fight them living or fight them with the dead. There are bigger things than her pride and her sense of birthright.

    sansa, arya, and dany

    The main point is, we can banter back and forth whether we approve or not til the cows come home but its how she sells that to others. I don't see how any of that mess up can be explained. And its not just Dany, I think Jon will and should suffer the consequences too. This is a story where breaking a marriage promise gets you, your mother, your allies and your armies murdered. We are seeing characters do much worse now

    sansa, arya, and dany

    It does not matter. It is her dragon. It didn't get there without her help. She could have chosen not to go. She could have considered for ten seconds that putting the most dangerous creatures in the world in the path of something that can raise the dead is a bad plan. Just because Tyrion and Jon also messed up doesn't change that. Yes, having those characters die would be sad, the writers shouldn't have put them in that situation anyway. But in-universe, its better those 6 die than have the wall fall and have the Kingdoms exterminated. Don't you think? She may have good intentions. She may not have meant for it to happen. It does not matter.
  18. AryaNymeriaVisenya

    sansa, arya, and dany

    Well she's not really doing a bang up job when its her dragon that just destroyed the wall that keeps the White Walkers out
  19. AryaNymeriaVisenya

    sansa, arya, and dany

    What could be problematic is if the Starks pack up. If they really are going for Aegon and his sisters. That leaves Dany in the cold. Also if the North proclaims Sansa Queen and Dany is faced with a ruler who is legitimate, chosen by their people, not crazy and who she can't get in bed with. Well she can but I don't see Sansa going for it.

    [TWoW Spoilers] Aeron I (Balticon)

    So I take it that this means the 'Bride of Fire' trilogy relates to the Three Mounts you must ride. The Silver and the Ship with Aeron on the Prow fits that. But these are very literal compared to the blue rose in the wall of ice. We assumed the Blue rose was Jon but the other two are not as figurative. I would assume that she will need to 'mount' this wall of ice as in climb it?

    I was bothered that it was so easy and clean for Dany. Drogon went for the harpies with no other damage? Wasn't she meant to be whipping him and having her hair burnt off?

    [Book Spoilers] EP506 Discussion v. 2

    It was definitely brutal, Dany was abused to tears by Drogo until it apparently turned out she just wasmt pleasing him the right way or some crap.

    [Book Spoilers] EP506 Discussion v. 2

    Interesting Targ madness was brought up again, after Barristan's stories of Aerys and Dany's very questionable actions last week that had whiffs of Aerys.

    I think she is too low profile to really be the ringleader. A prostitute with no lines?

    [Spoilers] EP505 Discussion

    Hizdahr and Daario start the season returning from a city that overthrew the people Dany had left in charge. Their demand was only to open the fighting pits which seems too little for peace. The scene I am mentioning is Daario and Grey Worm looking or Sons of the Harpy behind a Wall that Daario magically finds because he 'knows fear'!
