Little Questions That Don't Fit Anywhere Else Part 3

Ok. Another question for anyone out there.

How was Tyrion able to see Drogon flying over Old Valyria when Meereen is atleast 1/3 of the world away from where they are? The locations and timing are just off. I get he is a big, strong flyer, but taking that route would put him over many, many heavily populated cities and people all over the world would start freaking out because the "rumors" would be true.

When we first see Drogon in S5, he is on top of the pyramid visiting Dany (he left his Quaithe costume at home). Then we next see Drogon all the way down in Old Valyria. Then the third time we see Drogon is in the fighting pits and he takes Dany to the new Dragonstone in the opposite direction of where we have seen him so far.

Seeing the covers of the S5 DVD sets all over reminded me of this and I was not part of an online talkie-group then to be able to ask. Sorry if it has been talked to death in the past.

Valyria is mostly burnt and has demons and crazies living in it, and from there it's mostly ocean to Meereen. So maybe a few sailors would have spotted him, but not many others. Sure, it's probably a thousand leagues, but Tyrion gets to Dany before Drogon shows up, and it's reasonable to assume that D could make the journey much quicker than T.

Has Davos been given the title Lord in the show?

I think that he may have been given a lordship when Stannis made him his hand, but that may have been in the books only, or possibly just in my imagination.

Mel calls him Ser Davos in 601, but I thought that was a catty dig at him, refusing to acknowledge him as an advisor to Stannis, but then Ser Alliser called him Ser as well

I have thought this for a while and wanted to see what you guys think about why Varys was looking out for Gendry? 

My conclusion is Gendry is Cersei and Roberts first born child. She said he had black hair back in season one to Ned. She also says he was stillborn. But what if he wasn't and Varys took him to to the blacksmith to be raised. 

I know the big question is why Varys would do this. He is known to always have a back up plan. And Gendry would be a good back up plan either way true born or bastard. But it would help more if true born. This has been bothering me for a while. Would love to hear what you think.

Gendry is Roberts bastard..IMO....and maybe with Aryia could be king???? I hope they meet again.

 

You are probably right. I think Gendry being true born would be a great twist to the story. It would be a shocker to everyone.

Has it been noted that Sam Tarley, once he has grown a maester's beard, will look spookily like his creator, GRRM?

This suggests to me that Samwell is being set up to be the big hero of the epic, saving the world with his bookish learning!

On the show, the mother wolf was the "standard" wolf-grey with a slightly lighter/whiter undercoat.

Here is a link if you want to read more about each Stark wolf http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Direwolf

He has the northern clans with him, and after re-taking Deepwood Motte he writes to Jon saying more are joining him every day.

The show butchered the character from the start, then flayed it, and then spat on it.

From the start? He's one of the greatest characters and his end was beautifully tragic like in Greek mythology. Have you read any other literature before?

Please, can someone tell me what happened to old nan in the books? in the show she simply vanished, is she dead or escaped when Theon took winterfell?

I don't think it was explicitly stated in the books, but i believe there may be reason to assume she was among the prisoners taken back to the Dreadfort.
