Blangadanger Posted April 25, 2012 Share Posted April 25, 2012 To me, Renly's imminent assassination needs to be kept secret, especially since the assassin is some sort of demon spawn from Lord Stannis, who's always announcing how honourable he is, and Melisandre. If anyone saw what happened in the flooded passageway, I doubt Stannis would take over late Renly's remaining armies so readily. Stannis trusts his most loyal man to do a frightening deed far away from others that could hear or see it, so he sends Davos to a secret, dark place that few know about.Obviously from a book-reader's perspective, we have to ask questions about Storm's End since the shadow baby chapter was introduced there (after Renly's death). But from strictly a show-watcher's perspective, I think it makes sense that a dark, magical birth needs an equally dark and isolated setting.
