The Prince of Dorne (no leaks)

Recommended Posts

Maybe the Ds thought it was "fan service" to book readers and the more astute unsullied asking about the 3 Kingdoms that aren't in the endgame. 

 

Ditto Dany legitimising Gendry and giving him Storm's End

As others have been joking... QUENTYN IS ALIVE! If he even gets a name. Personally, I’d have hired a woman and done an Arianne nod.

I watched the episode 2 times. The second time I was even looking for this mention. Missed it anyway. I believe you, but when and where?

Maybe it is Edric Dayne. Didn’t he actually appear briefly in the show?

I don't think it matters who the new Prince of Dorne. It was a throwaway line. 

I agree, probably not. But book readers know Edric, Edric knows Arya and Gendry, so at the very least it is interesting speculation material for book readers.

Hotpie. It would make just as much sense as everything else on the show right now. Or Daario and it turns out he's the real Aegon Targaryen, as he rides into King's Landing at the head of a whole army of dragons. While playing the electric guitar.
 

Seriously speaking, I think it was just a throwaway line to cover up bad story decisions. We will never see Dorne's amazing off-screen prince.

Somebody on the writing team remembered Dorne was a story line that existed, and they threw in a line to wrap it up. The prince has no name because it doesn't matter who he is. He's a footnote.

Or maybe they mentioned it so as to make a Dornish army appear, along with Yara Greyjoy's navy, to help Daenerys take King's Landing

A part of me thinks this will be the case and Yara's fleet will take out Euron's because why not. But I think generic Dorne army could show up and help out Dany. She needs a "win" after they show them losing and almost everyone getting killed 10 different times.

I just think it doesn't matter for the show who the new Prince of Dorne is. If by some miracle D&D do decide to give the new Prince of Dorne a name. I'd rather it be a Yronwood then Edric Dayne.

If we do actually find out who this new Prince of Dorne is, which I don't think we will by the way, I could see it being Edric Dayne, if only so that D&D could have some fanservice moment of showing him using Dawn.

Sadly 98% of the fans who watch, don't even know what Dawn is.

Or...a bit of an out there theory, maybe Dorne is the route the  Lord of Light takes for a last stand in this story. Makes sense if the Prince is Edric, because Edric was Beric’s squire and so likely a follower of R’hllor at this point.

What happened to the Dornish forces?

I am not sure they were ever used. Yara was ambushed on the way to pick them up wasn’t she? Or was it afterwards?
