kissdbyfire Posted February 26 Share Posted February 26 (edited) On the 3 KG being at the ToJ... the short and sweet answer is, we don't know why they were there, and we don't know why they stayed. There are too many pieces of the puzzle missing. I don't think their presence there necessarily means Rhaegar and Lyanna got married somehow, and it also doesn't mean they didn't; again, there are far too many details missing. I also don't think the mystery of their presence there can be solved using their vows as KG. We know it's possible that Rhaegar was planning on making "some changes" (whatever those might be), we know Dayne and Whent were close to Rhaegar, especially Dayne. Is it possible they knew their KG vows would require them to go back to KL to protect whoever was left of the royal family but ignored it b/c of either some arrangement they had w/ Rhaegar or b/c of some belief of theirs that spoke to them in a way that made them ignore their vows? Yes. And before anyone gets their knickers in a twist, I'm only saying it is possible, even if it may be unlikely. Hightower is the one whose motives may be the hardest to decipher, since he was the LC and only joined the other two after Aerys sent him looking for Rhaegar. But again, is it possible that something made him decide to stay there? And again, the answer is yes, it is possible. He was present when Aerys murdered Rickard and Brandon... was that the straw that broke the camel's back? Possibly not, since immediately after the murders he tells Jaime that they're not supposed to judge the king. Could something else have happened that changed his mind? Something Rhaegar told him? Yes, it's possible, even if unlikely. Like many other little mysteries, we won't be able to piece this together until we have more information.
