He seems guaranteed to die at this point. "Subversive" isn't anymore, its just another tired lame trope at this point. Sweetrobin in the show has zero reason to not survive and thrive and without dragons in the picture, the Vale remains completely fucking invulnerable. All it has to do is maintain relations with Braavos and its arsenal, and poof, the rest of the kingdoms can fuck off. Or beat themselves bloody against the bloody gates or try and fight a long naval war. Sweetrobin in the book however, is on the edge of being poisoned to death or dying from withdrawal, having a severe epileptic fit regarding Sansa"Alayne" getting hurt oneway or another, or outright assassination. Even if he is aged up and has grown quite a bit and is entering physical and sexual maturity, he's still all kinds of fucked. IIRC, they ignored the SweetSleep and drugs entirely in the show, but its a thing in the books. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
