The Fattest Leech Posted August 13, 2017 Share Posted August 13, 2017 1 minute ago, The Sleeper said: It's common sense really. If he got there first it would have been a coup. Now he has to capture one of the strongest castles in Westeros. They are outnumbered, starving and even if they win they still have to take a fully garrisoned castle. Stannis doesn't have even a fraction of the force he would need to take Winterfell by force. In any case Winterfell is not his to dispose off. If Stannis manages to come out on top, it will because the northmen turn on Roose. Yes. The Freys will be cut down by Stannis with the aid of northerners who are not loyal to Roose, thus removing the largest part of the opposing foot soldiers. Everybody inside Winterfell knows Arya is a fake and that Ramsay is sadistic, including the talk he is a kinslayer. THere doesn't seem to be much respect for him in that department because he broke a law of the gods. The other lords are there for some personal reasons, most because they all had someone killed at the Red Wedding. Another broken godly law, which both can be used as reasoning for a political maneuver. I don't think it is a stretch in speculation to think there will be many who turn on Roose. Stannis wants Nightfort, if not the throne, and I don't think he will stay at Winterfell long, especially since there are other living Starks. He may die soon anyway, but not until these other events happen first. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
