KarlaOlivia_of_Winterfell Posted May 4, 2021 Share Posted May 4, 2021 Do you believe that all this may be leading to something great that Martin is preparing in Harrenhal As Tywin demonstrated the position of the fortress is a great advantage as a strategic point in Westeros. So for Littlefinger it is important to occupy it if he want to increase his chances of success. Now there could be a rivalry between Emmon Frey and Littlefinger as the first one thinks that they have stolen his title of Lord Paramount of the Trident and this has been pointed out by Martin. Before leaving Harrenhal Jaime entrusts Ser Bonifer and the Holy Hundred to take charge of the bandits who continue to attack the Riverlands, most likely Lady Stoneheart and the Brotherhood without Banners. The interesting thing is that perhaps Bonifer could abandon her allegiance to the Lannister crown if he discovers that a descendant of Rhaella have returned. Also despite the more common opinion that Lady Stoneheart will only meet one of her daughters, the fact that the pseudonyms of Arya and Sansa, Cat and Alayne, sound similar to Catelyn and that both of them have mentions to the stone, bastard last name in the Vale and the way Arya feels her heart, makes me think that both of them will have to interact with the character. And finally Harrenhal already marked the destiny of the Starks before with Brandon, Benjen, Lyanna and Ned. Besides that Martin has placed some interesting parallels: The squires that Lyanna defeats are from the Frey and Haigh houses, orchestrators of the Red Wedding and the Blount, to which Boros belongs who more abused Sansa by order of Joffrey. Yohn Royce was the former Melee champion and now acts as Littlefinger's greatest enemy among the lords of the Vale. Possibly a member of House Dayne, Edric, and another of the Baratheon, Gendry, both related to Arya, will reappear. As a final note in the Harrenhal Forest of Gods there is a Weirwood that possibly was the inspiration for Lyanna's shield and that could be used by the Three-Eyed Raven to see what happened there and the new one, Bran,could do it again .
