Ralfius Darkstar Hightower Posted June 19, 2015 Share Posted June 19, 2015 (edited) There is a part in this chapter that I believe is very revealing about the whole aegon being a pretender issue. The part in the chapter where arianne finds elia in the cave catching fish, she says something like "you could have died" why take the time to describe how ominous it sounded and how many times it echoed off the wall when the word "died" was said. Let's think about it. George takes the time to mention "died" echoed ominously off the wall 3 times. This is also said referring to Elia. I think in this subtle description of something very minor we were just hinted at aegon being a fake because it says died 3 times and three people died at the hands of the mountain and amory lorch, Elia, rhaenys, and aegon. And the fact that the words "ominously echoed off the walls" much like aegons head was smashed against the walls. Perhaps I'm looking too deep, but I feel there are always clues in seemingly simple descriptive sentences of surroundings. It's a very subtle clue that all three died and the baby aegon never survived. Edited June 19, 2015 by Ralfius Darkstar Hightower Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
