Eira Seren Posted May 19, 2014 Share Posted May 19, 2014 Well on the point about Brynden Rivers, Aemon did travel to Eastwatch with him as they were both going North to join the watch, and Aemon would have served Bloodraven as his maester once Brynden became Lord Commander, yet he speaks (to Samwell) in the past tense about Brynden Rivers. I would be suspicious of any assertion that Aemon knows or even suspects that Bloodraven is still alive.On the second it is hard to say. The two passages where we have real emotional intensity from Aemon are the one in which he talks to Jon about the downfall of House Targaryen and the onein which he speaks to Samwell after they hear of Dany's dragons. If there was a point at which there would be a hint that he suspected that Jon was his kin it would be, I think, in the first and maybe in the second. I see nothing there, but if you have something you would want to point to, please do so. I'll have to reread these passages. If I see anything I'll let you know (and it's in line behind a couple of other projects :eek: so it could be a little while). It makes me think that if he knows anything, Aemon has decided that Jon (and possibly Bloodraven) have chosen their respective paths and the door is shut on the matter.
