Giant Ice Spider Posted June 24, 2018 Share Posted June 24, 2018 A few people here and there have suggested Asha might be pregnant. I wanted to expand on this idea, and point out some implications. It could be someone has already pointed this out, so I apologise. And now, just to remind everyone... ASHA IS MARRIED. So her relationship with Qarl is an extramarital affair. This is notable because Asha is with Stannis Baratheon, who, y'know, is a bit rigid where laws are concerned. This means that, if Asha is pregnant, Qarl the Maid will be burned alive. Yup. The punishment for sleeping with another man's wife is quite severe in Westeros, and Stannis has a thing about burning people alive. Conveniently, Qarl is the grandson of a thrall, nobody of import, so it's inconsequential to burn him. So yeah, I think I've identified Stannis' next BBQ. As for Asha, I have no idea, and I'm interested to hear your opinion. Stannis seems to be becoming more flexible, the question is, has he become flexible enough to let Asha off the hook? I can see her receiving some form of punishment (and perhaps worse than having the ends of her fingers lopped off), though I doubt he'll burn her since I don't see her arc going that way. And besides, the Mannis seems to want her alive for something or other. Any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
