SPOILER DO NOT READ IF YOU Don't want to know what happens in last book so far



Am sulking cos they killed off JS! How could he? Don't know what he was thinking! So haven't watched series 2 or 3 yet. Just can't get excited anymore

snuffaluffagus Wed 10-Apr-13 17:18:15

You don't know he's actually dead though... I admit it doesn't look good, but I'm clinging onto there being a chance..

SorrelForbes Wed 10-Apr-13 17:20:52

No, I doubt very, very much that he's dead.

If its a cliffhanger, that sounds like a good omen to me

Havent read it yet though, just know what happens as I have no patience!
<goes back to book 2 chapter 1...>

WildlingPrincess Wed 10-Apr-13 17:24:01

I don't think he's dead.

adeucalione Wed 10-Apr-13 17:25:48

I don't think he's dead, and it wouldn't be the first time GRRM has employed a bit of misdirection (Bran and Rickon).

Cactuar Greece Wed 10-Apr-13 17:37:28

I don't think he can be dead. He has to be one of the three heads of the dragon surely, along with dany. Not sure about the third yet. I think he is going to survive in ghost's body.

ImAlpharius Wed 10-Apr-13 17:40:46

YANBU I was very stroppy at the end of that book and am clinging on to the hopethat he will still be around somehow.
I am also getting a little impatient on a parenthood reveal, and if ti isn't Lyanna and Rhaegar I am going to stomp my feet a lot.

Cactuar Greece Wed 10-Apr-13 17:53:23

He will definitely survive as there would be no point in the mystery surrounding his parentage which, as ImAlpharius has said has to be lyanna and rhaegar.

WildlingPrincess Wed 10-Apr-13 17:56:33

Don't we find out about his parentage in the next book? He needs to be alive for that! If it's not Lyanna and Rhaegar I will cry. It makes sense to me.

UnfortunateUsername Wed 10-Apr-13 17:58:14

Yep, totally not dead.

skaen Wed 10-Apr-13 18:04:58

I don't think he's dead but it still pissed me off. YANBU.

GRRM - JUST GET ON WITH IT!

expatinscotland Wed 10-Apr-13 18:08:13

You don't know if he's dead.

Undertone Wed 10-Apr-13 18:11:00

Speculation for the third head of the dragon? Someone Dornish?

expatinscotland Wed 10-Apr-13 18:12:04

I'm fairly certain that Lyanna and Rhaegar were his parents because of that part of the book, when Bran is visited by the 3-eyed crow. He tell the maester his father was in the crypts last night. And he tells him that Ned was sad. When asked why, Bran tells him because of Jon and something to do with Jon's mother.

MummytoMog Wed 10-Apr-13 18:12:49

Totes not dead. Also surely Aegon is the third head right?

expatinscotland Wed 10-Apr-13 18:13:09

Dany, Aegon and Jon.

expatinscotland Wed 10-Apr-13 18:13:56

Maester Aemon is also not dead as far we know, and he, too, is a Targaryen.

MummytoMog Wed 10-Apr-13 18:17:06

Maester Aemon is dead. He died ages ago. Did I miss another resurrection?

expatinscotland Wed 10-Apr-13 18:20:22

Oh, shit, that's right, during the last book. I'm rereading them all again but am on Book 2.

Cactuar Greece Wed 10-Apr-13 18:21:02

Aegon would seem to be the obvious choice for the third head but I really thought it was going to be a woman. does not seem to be a candidate for another possible targaeryan female though so probably will be aegon. Will be a bit disappointed if it is though as he is a bit of a drip!

I don't watch the series because it's crap

Barely any sign of the wolves, dany is blonde, js is a wanky kid with a chubby face, they're trying to make cersai likeable, arya is pretty, sansa isn't.

I don't mind them changing minor stuff but when they alter pivotal aspects of the books it's just irritating.

Js definitely isn't dead btw, grrm wouldn't do that to us grin

Remember he made us think the dragon was dead at the end of the last book and it was just misdirection.

catsmother Wed 10-Apr-13 18:28:55

Never mind JS, I'm more concerned that George RR Martin is going to die before he finishes the story .....

Cactuar Greece Wed 10-Apr-13 18:31:32

Catsmother grin

snuffaluffagus Wed 10-Apr-13 18:51:06

I think he has the bulk of the next book written and outlines for the rest of the story. He's just spending loads of time on the TV series and then touring and doing talks and the like. Hopefully he'll get there eventually!
