Guest Other-in-law Posted June 12, 2007 Share Posted June 12, 2007 For what it's worth, I don't consider the 'guarding the heir at ToJ' theory to be proven or 100% certain or anything either...just a very solid expanation of some otherwise baffling elements. We obviously don't know everything about what happened there, so we could end up getting new information that changes our understanding of it quite a bit. Even if they became convinced that Lyanna's child was the PwwP (which they may have) I don't think that would be sufficient to explain their presence at the ToJ instead of with Viserys. As commendable as protecting the PwwP would be, it's not the job they swore to do with an oath...an oath that they are practically bragging about keeping in Ned's dream. My idea of Rhaegar wanting to keep Hightower out of the way so he could move against Aerys is far more speculative yet, and I'm not insisting that it is so, though I see it as a possibility.
