Lord Varys Posted December 9, 2016 Author Share Posted December 9, 2016 @rotting sea cow Oh, the Skagos thing as such certainly does make sense. Just pieces in the incomplete story they tell Davos doesn't make much sense. But we don't have to follow Robett Glover's speculation as to why Wex wasn't discovered by Osha and Shaggy when we don't even know yet how Wex ended up in the hands of Manderly men. A lot of stuff there is unclear but not necessarily contradicting. 6 minutes ago, rotting sea cow said: To learn what happened in Winterfell. He could learn that from Osha, too. She also knows that Rickon and Bran are alive, and that the Boltons killed the Ironborn. There is no reason they would need Wex if they had ever talked to Osha. 6 minutes ago, rotting sea cow said: Probably he did but the ship never returned (shipwreck out of skagos). The shipwreck could very well be the ship delivering Osha and Rickon there but my question was about Wyman actually sending some men of his with them to protect them and to decide what to do later on (say, just as Illyrio and Varys have Connington, Lemore, and Haldon with Aegon to represent them and adapt the plan if unexpected stuff happens). If Wyman had men sent to Skagos with Rickon and Osha then he would not really need Davos right now. Not to mention that he would only have sent Rickon to Skagos if he had friends there he could trust - and that's a very unlikely scenario. 6 minutes ago, rotting sea cow said: Because Rickon trusts her more than anyone and can calm him and thus his wolf Cannot answer this. The only reason is that he doesn't have too many sailors with open seas experience. He states that explicitly. Whether a lie or not I cannot say. Sure, but the whole Skagos incident doesn't make much sense. I'm providing one alternative that doesn't require Osha knowing secret sea routes, explaining how Wex ended under Wyman's custody and knowing "enough" to convince Davos. Of course Osha, Rickon and Wex could have gotten to the Umber's Last Hearth using the Long Lake east route (which is less watched) and then using Umber's long ships to Skagos. But then, how Wex ended under Manderly custody? We don't have necessarily to go with the idea that Wex ended up at White Harbor intentionally. They could have been separated. I mean, there is no guarantee that whoever had the ship that brought them to Skagos did not try to sell them to the Lannisters. They must have known who they had there. 6 minutes ago, rotting sea cow said: As you have stated, having Rickon immediately available (if he was confined in the Wolf Den for example) would mean that Manderly can raise the direwolf banner immediately after his son is returned and wage war against the Boltons in the Starks name. He doesn't have that option yet. Yeah, but the idea is that he would have never sent Rickon to Skagos had he ever had the boy in his city. He would have hidden him so that he could use him as soon as his hands were untied. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
