Winterfell is Burning Posted September 19, 2022 Share Posted September 19, 2022 8 minutes ago, frenin said: The "arguments" she gives in the books to usurp the throne are flimsy and based on nothing we read. She's the one pushing Aegon, not because she fears an existential danger to her family but because according to her own husband, she just wants her blood on the Throne. Book Alicent is nothing but greedy and vindictive. Hell, this show has managed to turn Otto into a reasonable guy when it came to push Aegon's claim. Rather than him starting a mess for his own benefit. @Winterfell is Burning I don't believe her a seductress, I believe her power hungry because she literally left her husband's corpse to rot for a whole week in order to properly steal the Throne. This is not Maester's bias. Yeah, I'm not going to bother answering that since you clearly made up you mind that "Blacks=nice Greens=EEEEVIL" and that somehow fits GRRM writing. You'll probably not going to enjoy this show if you expect it though. Ser Jon Darry 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
