    Ned shouldn't have allowed Robb and Theon to become so close

    Ned definitely treated him more like a ward than a hostage. Maybe it just wasn't in Ned's nature to punish a then 10 year old Theon by branding him as an outcast. I really think Ned had no idea what to do with his 10 year old Iron Born hostage.

    Poll: Is Jon Snow the son of a Dayne?

    That would be one hell of a solid Rhaegar did for his buddy if he helped Arthur run away with Lyanna. Not sure why Rhaegar would have to stay at the ToJ with them when war broke out though. Arthur not being at least in the Tower while Lyanna was dying from birthing their son was kind of jerk move. Maybe it was all a jerk move on Arthur's part, he saw how the Stark brothers were lusting after his sister Ashara and wanted to get even. If all that was true Ned telling Bran Arthur Dayne was the finest knight he ever saw would seem...odd.

    Poll: Is Jon Snow the son of a Dayne?

    No. But if a Stark did bed Ashara it had to be Brandon. I doubt Ned would sleep with any woman, let alone a high born lady, without being married to her. The first book goes a long way to show us the differences between Ned and Bob.
  4. I'd imagine Rhaegar would want to keep all of the bad news away from her if he was worried about her pregnancy. Pregnancy was dangerous enough for mother and child as it is, adding extreme stress from horrible news could make things worse. Rhaegar also stayed with her through most of the war in a place that was fairly untouched by the war. Rhaegar and Dorne didn't leave for the war until before the final battle, so he could have been filtering information to Lyanna that whole time. Then once he left for the capitol he could have told his KG not to tell her anything else that might upset her and her pregnancy. This is all amusing that she was pregnant, which I'm inclined to believe.
  5. Robert was House Stark's number one fanboy. He loved his Ned and loved the idea of being his brother by marriage. Then later loved the idea of marrying his son to his Ned's daughter. He was hellbent on making the Starks apart of his family somehow. Had Benjen been born a girl Robert would have married him and made him his Queen.

    Jon Snow's Real Name

    That does really roll off the tongue.

    R+L=J&M [Part VI] - ADOS Endgame Prediction: The Dark Meera Saga

    When I read it I pictured Meera as Alyssa Milano, older than Who's the Boss but younger than Charmed. Then I pictured Jaime Lannister as a less buff blonde Arnold Schwarzenegger from Last Action Hero, because I don't care what anyone says, that movie is a classic that actually aged well. Bran was obviously a young Sean Austin from Goonies.
  8. Wasn't Criston Cole her sworn sword since she was a little girl? That means he would have been around her everyday and seen her grow up from a girl to a woman in almost a parent type role, making him a creep if he wanted her sexually, IMO. On the topic of Criston Cole, after he was made Hand was he still technically a KG member? Was it really necessary for Aegon II to name Cole his Hand anyway? He was LC of the KG already and had a position on the small council where he could give Aegon his opinion on how to fight the war and lead his armies. He was already fully committed to the Greens, he was "the Kingmaker". How did his role of Hand really change things as he already had more power than any LC of the KG ever had before or since? Did Aegon II do it as a reward for Cole's prior service and loyalty? I mean shouldn't have Aegon offered the position of Hand of the King to a lord who had yet to commit to a side as a way to bring them to his alliance. Naming Cole Hand just seemed like a lateral move. That was a pretty harsh burn from the Baratheon daughter that triggered him.
  9. I'm not sure Brandon consulted with anyone once he heard the news. It sounds like once he got the news he announced he was going to King's Landing and why, then those of his friends present at that time that wanted to join him did. Maybe he told someone to send a raven to Winterfell and the Vale but I doubt he was going to wait for an answer on how to proceed like he should have. In all rights it was Lord Rickard who should have made the final decision on how to proceed as Lyanna was his responsibility until she was wed. Rickard could have sent Brandon in his name but I'm not sure that was the case as Brandon never said as such. Maybe I'm wrong and Rickard did send Brandon but Brandon decided just to chant come out and die instead of asking for an audience with the King and or Crown Prince on behave of the Lord of Winterfell and father in the matter of Lyanna Stark's disappearance.
  10. Was Aemond somehow in the wrong for mounting and bonding with Vhagar? Why did little Joffrey try to stop him? Was he more worried about Vhagar killing him or excepting him? Why are Jacaerys and his two younger brothers named Velaryons instead of Targaryens? Wouldn't they take their mother's name instead of her consort's? Wouldn't have Rhaenyra's situation be like that of a ruling Princess of Dorne? Just like how Doran. Oberyn and Elia took their mother's name and not their father's. I can see maybe Lucerys or Joffrey taking the Velaryon name if it was thought that one was going to be named the Lord of Driftmark eventually, but Jacaerys was the heir's heir to House Targaryen so shouldn't he have been named Jacaerys Targaryen since birth?
  11. So it's basically known by everyone in the small council that Laenor had absolutely no interest in women. So why on earth did Viserys agree to this marriage option? Because Grand Maester Mellos, the person who should know least of all on the subject, makes a weak analogy between sex and food? Was Mellos part of the Greens? Was he for the marriage in hopes that Rhaenyra would never produce an heir with a husband who was not interested so the crown would go to Alicent's children's line? Why didn't Viserys or anyone else say "well GM Mellos while we appreciate that you'v eaten foods that aren't your favorites from time to time, that's not how things work in the marriage bed." Honestly kind of surprised Rhaenyra never thought to take Ser. Hawin Strong as a second husband in secret. Then revealed it after Viserys died, so the Green couldn't accuse them of being bastards.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Only a few years after she bled in which he was actively trying to marry her off for no political gain, it's not like she had a betrothal to fulfill. Whats the harm of letting her wait until she's in her 20s? As Alysanne later laments after Daella dies in childbirth, she was probably too young and slight to begin barring children. Perhaps Daella's mind could have furthered matured with her body. Maybe the step daughter writing the letters didn't like or get along with her older sister and thought bad mouthing her to the Queen would get her punished, and get her moved up the line of succession in the Vale? Said Arryn sister writing the letter could have certainly left out that her older sister was unkind to Daelle as a means of protecting that sister if they were close.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Why would it have been such a big deal if sweet Daella never married? It didn't seem like Jaehaerys cared how her marriage would matter politically, even though in the end it ironically proved to have a major effect on the Targaryens with Daella's daughter being a queen. It's strange Jaehaerys could have such a caring marriage with a woman like Alysanne but as soon as his daughters bleed he wants them wedded and bedded as soon as possible. The poor girl was scared of kittens for crying out loud.
  14. Rhaegar is Mance Arthur Dayne is Mance Rhaegar was his own best friend.

    Elia Martell: Yes, another Septa Lemore speculation

    If Elia was alive I think Jon Con would have sent her to Doran as soon as they landed. That way they'd get their spears much faster and easier then waiting for Arianne to come and convince her then have her sent a raven back to Dorne. If Tyrion couldn't figure out that Lemore was in some way related to Oberyn then I doubt Arianne would be able to verify that Elia is her aunt. The best way would be for Elia to travel to Dorne with guards instead of Arianne traveling to the Golden Company. People think Elia is dead, they know Arianne is alive.
