I was big on the Shiera-Seastar-is-Quaithe theory for a long time, but looking at how GRRM normally heavily foreshadows a “lost” character’s return (ex. JonCon and fAegon), I think Ashara makes more sense. Shiera isn’t mentioned much, and between Bloodraven’s description of her as “a woman I desired” (rather than loved) and what George said about how she refused to marry BR because she “preferred to make him jealous,” I don’t their relationship ended well. It sounds like they had a Jaime and Cersei situation, where she simply didn’t care about him as much as did her. With that in mind, I doubt they’re working together now to save the world. (I still think it’s possible that Melisandre is their daughter though). As for Daemon’s stillborn son, he probably planned on naming him either Aegon (to piss of the Greens) or Viserys, for the king. It would explain why he didn’t name his son posthumously, since he planned on having a son with either name eventually. Granted, they may have tried to flatter Corlys by naming the boy after him instead. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
