    I don't necessarily think you're an idiot. I just know you're not as smart as you think you are.

    The Night King riding unViserion will burn down the Red Keep and KL.

    Is Jon and Dany's blood relationship supposed to be a problem?

    I'm actually pretty sick of all the people who look at the show through 21st century morals. The world as we know it wasn't always how it is today. In ancient Egypt royal brother/sister marriages were common. In European history, royal first cousins often married. There were even cases of uncles marrying their nieces and aunts marrying their nephews. What I do think is weird is that GRRM created a Westeros in which people accepted the Targ siblings pairing off but they looked down on the Lannisters doing it. Why the double standards? http://listverse.com/2014/11/26/10-royal-families-riddled-with-incest/
  3. That's not a strong reason IMO.
  4. I guess they took inspiration for this from messy, illogical 18th century Russian history. Peter III was overthrown by his wife, a German princess with no claim to the throne of Russia, who reigned as Catherine II (the Great).
  5. Why is this even a question? Everyone deserves to know the truth and Jon lives for the truth. Bran knows this and that's why he wants to tell him. The only part of this info I can see spinning Jon out is knowing he fucked his aunt. Everything else will make him happy. The northern lords will overlook Jon being a Targ in the same way they overlooked the fact that he left the Night's Watch. Besides, this confirms he's still half Stark (and legitimate at that), and they can't complain about that.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    LOL true. And there were batshit crazy monarchs in history who exercised their powers in nonsensical ways so there is no reason why we can't believe fictional ones wouldn't do it too. I just can't foresee anyone legitimizing Gendry and resurrecting the house of Baratheon. No one has anything to gain from it as far as I can see.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    But it still comes down to Davos' word. He wasn't actually there when Gendry was born, he didn't know Robert or Gendry's mother. His word doesn't carry much weight because all his info is second or third hand.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    The point is, a royal decree has to be based on something. Sure, in this fictional setting, Daenerys (if she wins the throne) may legitimize Gendry. Sillier things have happened on G.O.T. I think you're both taking this far more seriously than I am boys.

    What is the role of Gendry?

    The problem remains that there is no way for him to prove that he's Robert's bastard, unless one of the books or scrolls Sam stole from the Citadel mentions a black haired boy born to King Robert and a yellow haired scrubber from Flea Bottom, who was apprenticed to a blacksmith and made an amazing bull's head helmet.
  10. I suspect your theory will be close to how Sansa/Alayne's story will turn out in the books.
  11. I was going to respond to this but Cas Stark pretty much covered what I was going to say.
  12. I lost faith in the writers when Baelish delivered Sansa into the hands of the Boltons. That made zero sense. Call me an optimist for overlooking the silly scenes that came before that.
  13. 6 out of 10 for me. It wasn't terrible but there were too many stupid scenes, including: Dany burning the food wagons after making a point of not having any food to feed her army because Cersei had raped the Reach, everyone catching fire when Drogon blew fire on them except Bronn and the Dothraki and the awkward scene featuring Missandei and Jon and Davos. I liked the scenes at Winterfell. Ok, Arya being a match for Brienne was a stretch but it was fun and unlike most viewers, Bran didn't creep me out. At least we didn't see Euron's fleet sail up Blackwater Rush to save the day for the Lannisters LOL

    How did The Reach lose?

    I'm not a historian but I doubt that a monarch would look favorably upon lords who backed someone that was in open rebellion against the crown. It doesn't just come down to whether the rebels received amnesty or not. I'm pretty sure those on the losing side and their children wouldn't prosper if they were known to have backed a traitor.
