koststerg Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 He spoke of dreams and never named the dreamer, of a glass candle that could not be lit and eggs that would not hatch. He said the sphinx was the riddle, not the riddler, whatever that meant.As others have said, Aemon realizing that the sphinx is not the riddler means that his first thought was that the sphinx was just the riddler. It also means that the sphinx-riddler must have spoken of a real riddle and all this probably happened in a dream. So the questions are:1) Who saw the dream?2) What was happening in the dream when the sphinx appeared?3) What was the riddle that the sphinx gave during this dream?4) Is there somebody speaking through the sphinx?1) It could be the first Daenerys` dream that caused the Targ ancestor to leave Valyria and spoke of a PtwP. But I think it is more likely that it is Egg`s dream since it goes together with "eggs that don't hatch"2) No real proof but I think that the sphinx appears in a destroyed landscape with dead dragons all around and speaks of a war that is coming3) The sphinx speaks of a prince that is going to fight this war and bring back the dragons and finishes by saying that the dragon will have 3 heads.4) I think that the greenseers and the CotF are speaking through these dreams (we know they are capable of entering a dream and speaking through it to the sleeping person) so the sphinx is the latest and current greenseer, Bloodraven and after his death Bran.
