It might be an indication that it will show up in the books...at least I don't recall reading about such a blade that reveals words when heated. 19 minutes ago, LynnS said: It's the same prop, apparently. Surely Ryan Condan knows how it was used in both the book and the show. Bookwise, I'd say Robert ended up with it as part of the Targaryen property after the Rebellion. Which is how Joffrey ended up with it. I doubt it was ever Tyrion's property or Littlefinger's property. Although, he took advantage of everyone's ignorance to claim it for himself. He's the last person in the chain of custody. Sansa getting her hands on it could be something GRRM decides to write into the books. Not sure if the castle made of snow is Winterfell or the second waycastle (called Snow) at the Eyrie. clearly HOTD showrunners want to have some connection to GoT . the whole prince that was promised thing that they have put in the show is a silly attempt to connect the shows. although Aegon's vision could be accurate in the books in some form or another, I personally doubt the dagger has any new importance to it . it's not a blade that passes hand to hand to get to Arya ,the Nights king slayer, who didn't need any help from Targaryens by the way ! it's a plain looking Valyrian dagger. it's richly enough that makes Starks wonder about its origin but not so clearly luxurious that someone like Joff or the catspaw know its price. and Robert won it from LittleFinger . he didn't inherit it through Targaryen armory. I believe the dagger is now more of a symbol of deceit in the books . the last time it showed up was when LF was talking to Sansa about (I think) Joff's murder, an event not unlike Bran's murder attempt . in both, sons are targeted , in both mothers think Tyrion is behind it , in both they are completely clueless about who is truly behind it.
