TWoW Prologue POV

Recommended Posts

Who do you think the prologue POV will be in TWoW?

My guess is Addam Marbrand. I think him and the rest of Jaime's men will get ambushed either by the Brotherhood without Banners, or the Blackfish and Riverlander rebels, in order to free Edmure and maybe Jeyne Westerling.

My guess is the maester at Casterly Rock.  We will get an update on events in Westeros from the CR point of view, and witness the arrival of Edmure Tully and Jeyne Westerling.  It will also give us our first glimpse of Casterly Rock.

I have doubts that the BwB or the Blackfish can get enough men and arms to put together a decent rescue operation.  By the way, Marbrand and Jaime are a long way from Edmure and Jeyne.  They are under the command of Forley Prester, headed to CR.  Jaime and Marbrand are headed to KL (or were until Jaime ran off with Brienne).

I like your thinking. It would be cool to see Casterly Rock in the books.

Could be. Though I think there has to be something more significant happen than just Jeyne showing up, I guess  a set up for stuff that happens in Winds. Basing this on the previously prologues - GoT sets up the series, CoK establishes the Dragonstone crew and Melisandre, Storm of Swords concludes the Great Ranging and positions Sam and the NW for the rest of the novel, Feast sets up the Pate reveal, Dance sets up the warging stuff. (Latter two are a bit different but that’s partly due to the split book, non-ending stuff).

Rescuing those hostages can be done in a way that it is shown that robb's kingdom (north+riverlands) is fighting back through the BwB, the witnesses to robbs will and howland reed and whoever loyal people remain. It is an important pov of  a faction of people we know nothing about since the red wedding and might be important if robb's will is going to be used.

I don't think there will be a rescue en route to Casterly Rock. I did, previously, but others convinced me it was unlikely due to the fact nothing is mentioned about that kind of thing in the Dance with Dragons epilogue. Jaime sees Jeyne leave for CR in Feast, and sets off with Brienne in Dance. As of the epilogue he has been missing for some time - 2 weeks I believe? So long enough that Jeyne will be in CR by now. If there had been a major rescue like that it would have been news and mentioned during the SC meeting. 

Could still be along the lines of what you say though. We know Jeyne will feature in the prologue, so a reveal regarding Robb's will wouldn't be surprising

The Prologue will be set at Casterly Rock, with Sybell Spicer-Westerling as POV. When she tells her daughter Jeyne Stark about the love potions she gave to her and Robb, Jeyne will push her mother over the edge of the Rock to her death.

That would be interesting. What other information do you think we would get in that prologue? Since most prologues give us something to do with a future storyline, such as learning that Jaqen H'ghar is in Oldtown, or Varamir giving us info on skinchanging.

Just getting a look inside Casterly Rock will be interesting. We may get a look at the Stone Garden, the Hall of Heroes, and many other places at the Rock that will help us understand House Lannister. We might lean more about Lann the Clever, and that could foreshadow future events.

We may get to hear conversations with various people of Casterly Rock that will shine light on the past and current state of the Lannisters. We could get tidbits about Joanna. We might hear their opinions of Tywin, Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, and Kervan. We could hear about the current state of the Westerlands. The Lannisters were the first to mobilize - they have been fighting longer than any other house. How exhausted are they, how many men have they lost, how much damage did Robb do to them? Are they prepared for winter?

We would also get inside Sybell's head, and learn about the negotiations between her and Tywin. We could also learn about the potions she used, and perhaps about the magics her grandmother Maggy the Frog was capable of, thus giving us clues about the nature of magic in the East.

A Sybell POV prologue would be chock full of juicy infodumps.
