Ok, but you might as well just say "all the gods" because Jaqen's oath was rather all-encompassing. Quote Bran may need Jaime for something in the past/present/future; but it may be R'hllor who delivers him to Bran. At this late stage I am having trouble imagining Bran and Jaime meeting. I'm not sure they will, at least not in the flesh. Quote More specifically, it could be Mel who gives Jaime the firey kiss, since it's her mission to find and make the Warrior of Light. Maybe, but Mel is at the Wall and other more likely kissers. like Thoros or Stoneheart, are much nearer by. I can, however, see Jaime becoming a sinister undead embodiment of Azor Ahai. Quote Yes. Mel also tells us that there can be no shadows without light. It's curious that Bran isn't shown the identities of the three figures: the shadow with the terrible face of the hound; the shadow armoured like sun and the giant standing over them from behind. Well, if the shadows are wights, then we are far enough into the future that the shadow with the hound face can probably no longer be considered to be Sandor. Sandor has abandoned that identity and that face, and the Helm has moved on without him. Quote The Undying would say that that the shadows are the shapes of things to come. We can make a guess on the first two. My guess would be (under the "future wights" interpretation, which I am by no means sure of): Jaime, and ... whoever the New Hound will be in coming volumes. Quote The third is a bit more cryptic, but I think it represents the Titan of Braavos, it's founder, a faceless man. I'll just go with Robert Strong. He's been wightified, so he fits my theory. Which again suggests Bran is seeing the future, when Gregor has become a wight, and Sandor is no longer "the Hound". Quote I agree, the lions that become gargoyles represent Cersei and Jaime, their souls twisted. It's the supressed memory coming back into his dreams. Yes, that's one interpretation. Alternatively, it may be a prophetic foreshadowing that they will become even more twisted -- as wights. The vision, after all, does not seem to say merely that the lions are fierce, bloodthirsty and cruel. It suggests they are no longer lions at all. Another vision that may blend echoes of the past with foreshadowing of the future is Brienne's dream of following Renly-who-is-not-Renly in some forest.
