Game Of Thrones Grown Up Talk. Do Not Enter Unless You Have Finished All The Books

571 posts in this topic

Basically, I see the MFG as the grim reaper... as depicted in pop culture... IE. by allowing someone to live, he is owed a death...  Arya saved the 3 prisoners from death by fire (when the campsite was set ablaze by Lannister men), therefore taking 3 deaths from the R'hllor. As is his duty as a servant of the god of death, Jaqen owed a debt to R'hllor of 3 deaths.

This could be seen as a weakness of R'hllor if you wanted to get all theoretical... The fire didn't kill the prisoners... But, at the same time, the MFG owed R'hllor apparently.

Yup, like PSC says.

Jaqen was a name, that cat was a "graduated" full blown "murder you with a pebble" assassin trained and sent off to do his thing for the Temple.

 

 

*sigh* How I wish he turned out to actually be Syrio...

FWIW, I think we are going to see some "power" jumps in the next book. 

 

Will Arya become Faceless?

Jon Snow -> Azior Aazaahhaiazaa

Sansa takes over the Vale ?

Danny -> Units a host of horselords with her Unsullied and Slave Armies + 3 Dragons + IronBorn?

Jamie Laniser --?????????

 

Tyrion?????

i don't think arya ever becomes faceless.   i think she goes rogue.

 

i hope jon snow is really dead.   never coming back.  i'm already weary of his speculations and most people haven't gotten through the 4th book yet.

I think there is too many reasons for Jon to not be dead for him to ...be dead...

I think the biggest wrench in the way many people are thinking is UnCat... I don't know how she or her followers are going to fit in to most people's theories about everything else.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
