The Bard of Banefort Posted November 14, 2021 Share Posted November 14, 2021 I still don’t understand Arianne’s plot, and I don’t see how a grown royal could fail to think more than a few weeks ahead. It really makes her look like a dumbass. Doran is probably the ruler we’d all like living under if we were small folk, since he kept Dorne out the war and fairly prosperous. If he committed to that, he’d be golden. The problem is he also wants revenge, and his plans for that have been totally bungled. Ned going to Cersei was dumb, but it was done more out of fear of what would happen to Tommen and Myrcella than part of a greater plan. Ned was acting on his humanity here, so I don’t consider it a bad political move so much as an act of mercy that went wrong.
