Gilbert Green Posted December 26, 2022 Share Posted December 26, 2022 GRRM posted about Casterly Rock on 12/23, trolling us with the "hope" (famous last words) that we would see Casterly Rock in a POV in WINDS or DREAM. He emphasizes the fact that the chambers of Casterly Rock are located inside a mountain, creating defenses with which no curtain wall can compare. He seems to want us to ponder the question whether a dragon could take Casterly Rock, the way Balerion the Black Dread devastated Harrenhall. My opinion was that this question was already answered when Smaug descended on Eriador and took possession of the halls of the Dwarf Kings. Would the same answer apply to Casterly Rock? It depends, I suppose, on whether the attacking dragon were small enough to get inside. So I'm guessing the attacker is more likely to be Rhaegal than Drogon. One detail worth remembering is that Tyrion knows the Casterly Rock sewer system. I suspect that this is how the dragon will get in, before roasting all the inhabitants alive.
