Started this off the back of the chat thread, where we didn't want to disclose spoilers for those that have only watched the series.

What do you think happens?

Poor Jon Snow. Stabbed... to death? I think so, but Melisandra is at the wall. he'll be brought back. His vows to the watch ended since he died. I have a sneaky feeling he will be on the Iron throne due to his parentage.
(Rhaegar and Ned Starks sister (can't remember her name)

I really see Dany going the way of Mad King Aerys. I think someone will put an end to her the way Jaime did Aerys, possibly Tyrion. There is a lot of indication of the bond between the 2 brothers, i think both of them will be "kingslayers"

A big 'un - Eddard Stark, is he dead? I've heard theories that a faceless one took his place. Varys seems to be in control of a lot more than he appears (and he appears to be in control of a lot) I have a sneaking suspicion that these theories are right and he and Arya will meet up.

just finished dance with dragons and loved it. Jon better not be dead. I don't think he will be because there have been too many hints about his parentage. I reckon Bran will see who Jon is and tell him. Melissandre will prob find out too. I really wanted him to kick Ramsey Bolton's ass.

in the end I think it will be the three targaryans fighting for the throne: daenerys, aegon and Jon although I do think that the fight for the wall may unite them for a time.

Wow, watched the Red Wedding episode for the first time. That was brutal, but at least I knew what was coming.

I am really hoping GRRM sticks to the 2015 deadline. I'd say HBO are putting serious pressure on him - their viewer figures would crash if people thought GOT was an unfinished epic...

TripTuckerInMyStocking Wed 19-Feb-14 19:50:31

Bluray! DYAC!

TripTuckerInMyStocking Wed 19-Feb-14 19:49:54

Woohoo, season 3 Bluesy has arrived!!!

miserywaterfall Mon 10-Feb-14 11:36:38

Season 4 starts in April, yeah! Wooot!

TripTuckerInMyStocking Mon 10-Feb-14 10:44:16

I've got the Blu Ray of season 3 on pre order, should be getting it at the end of the month.
I think it's season 4 they're about to show on Sky?

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Sun 09-Feb-14 16:38:44

Oh just seen trailer for got 3 on sky!

The woman who gave the prophecy to Cersei said he would have 16 children.

TripTuckerInMyStocking Sat 08-Feb-14 20:42:09

I agree about the grooming, I think Aintnobody is spot on.

Jean - only the ones that were in King's Landing. Edric Storm is at Storm's End, so Joffrey couldn't reach him there. Though I think he ended up at Dragonstone, after Stannis's men beseiged Storm's End (I think Melisandre offed the castellon Renly left in charge.)
Also Mya Stone in the Vale of Arryn is one of Robert's bastards. There could be other bastards of Robert's elsewhere. Hell, the way he shagged anything that moved, there was probably more than 16, it's just there was only 16 he knew were his!

JeanBodel Sat 08-Feb-14 20:26:51

I feel I should point out that all of Robert's bastards were horribly slaughtered.

ScandinavianPrincess Sat 08-Feb-14 20:09:18

I love this thread! So happy to see fellow GoT nerds. The Jon as son of Lyanna and Rhaegar could be too obvious.
2015! Cry!

expatinscotland Sat 08-Feb-14 19:43:22

He is creepy, making her kiss him on the mouth. Should have gone to Casterly Rock with Tyrion when she had the chance.

I have a feeling that Littlefinger is grooming her- she reminds him of Cat, he is so going out the moon door.

Does anyone else read Harry the heir as Harry the hair ?
I know that's not how you pronounce it, but for some reason, possibly the h in Harry, it sounds like that in my head.

I'm absolutely positive that Littlefinger is grooming Sansa, but I'm not quite sure why. I guess his plan is to marry her to Harry the Heir, and at some point either produce evidence that Tyrion is dead (easily forged) or get the marriage annulled, reveal that she is the Heir of Winterfell, then get Harry bumped off, marry Sansa and rule Winterfell and the Vale through her.

Badvoc Sat 08-Feb-14 18:56:28

No one else think littefinger is grooming Sansa for himself?

TripTuckerInMyStocking Sat 08-Feb-14 18:49:07

Yep, I think Nymeria is the head of the huge pack roaming the Riverlands.
Arya is going to become a faceless man and off Varys! Which would be a shame because I kind of like Varys.

I'd also like to see Sansa/Tyrion. As for Sansa marrying Harry the Heir, I assumed Littlefinger is going to maintain the fiction that Sansa is his bastard, Alayne Stone.

expatinscotland Sat 08-Feb-14 18:17:38

She was only twelve/ thirteen in the books. I don't think he holds her behaviour against her, tbh.

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 08-Feb-14 18:08:03

I want Sansa and Tyrion to become mates, and I want a scene where Sansa apologises to him for making things so difficult for him.

I have major love for Sansa though. She's going to learn all of Littlefinger's secrets and then push him out the moon door grin. Like Badvoc said, in the game of throne you win or you die, and Sansa survived Kings Landing, so I think she's winning.

What do we think Arya is going to do? I hope there's a Nymeria reunion scene.

expatinscotland Sat 08-Feb-14 17:36:43

She was only 12 when she was married to him. And, in the books, after being around Lysa, Robert and Littlefinger, she starts to realise she preferred Tyrion.

Sheldonswhiteboard Sat 08-Feb-14 17:15:41

true, I presume the High Septon has to declare an annulment, or given that Tyrion has buggered off maybe it's abandonment!

expatinscotland Sat 08-Feb-14 17:07:22

Well yes, but until it is, she is legally married to him.

Sheldonswhiteboard Sat 08-Feb-14 17:04:42

I think the marriage between Sansa and Tyrion could be annulled on the basis of non-consummation.

Sheldonswhiteboard Sat 08-Feb-14 17:03:44

Hmmm 2015, had these false dawns before, here's hoping he sticks to a deadline!
