Is Bronn going to replace Darkstar?

Recommended Posts

I feel that the Sand Snakes have won Bronn's favor. Does he fill the role of Darkstar?

I dunno. Bronn seems to say funny, clever things while Darkstar says weird and stupid things.



Now, could Bronn stab a young girl in the face in a very soulless, self-serving way? I suppose that's possible.

Bronn will do anything for a price. They will discover he is a sellsword who liikes gold and women. Tyene has his number. This set up is a given.

Remember when Tyrion asked him if he would ask any questions when told to murder a baby? He said, "How much?" This would be horrible though. We are talking about him murdering Tyrion's niece here...

I think Bronn is going to replace that Kingsguard that was banging the princess and get his head chopped by Areo Speedwagon. It really sucks because in a real fight Bronn would demolish Areo for a simple reason of combat experience. Bronn has been in non stop combat for the entire series while Areo has stood behind a crippled guys chair and done nothing. No amount of training or practice will make up for a lack of true combat experience, only plot armor can overcome such obstacles and I have a feeling Areo is wearing a full suit of it.

Isn't Areo supposed to be one of the best warriors of Dorne?

Eh, I figure he gets what happens to Arys Oakheart, but this at least would be something different from what seems like it'll happen in the show.

Interesting to see how this develops, where does Jaime then go from there, assuming he will be present. Does Bronn escape or is he dead meat like Oakheart?

Betting on Bronnstar. That scene in the jail cells made it seem like the Sand Snakes have a plan to use him somehow.

Didn't he say it was against his code to hurt women? I mean, he could've been lying, of course, but considering how inconsistent the characterization has been on the show it wouldn't surprise me

I remember back in season 1 while Tyrion, Bronn and Shae are playing that drinking game in Tyrion's tent, Bronn tells us that the first person he ever killed was a woman. It's entirely possible that his new code took effect once he became a knight, but it seems more likely that this is just an issue of continuity as you've said.

With that said, I think Bronn is going the Oakheart route rather than Darkstar.

Neither oakheart or darkstar. They had their chance to kill off Bronn already and they didn't do it. His near brush with death will make him see things differently and he decides to stay behind in Dorne to spend the rest of his days in peace and die an old man "going out in a boring way" just like he said, effectively fading away from the story just like his book counterpart.
