    Finally, so glad these threads are seperate now.

    Really looking forward to Davos' chapters. Always been a fan of Davos, and a fan of sneaking, which seems to be what he'll be up to.

    I'm interested to see how the Battle for Winterfell turns out. Most places I've been reading take it as a forgone conclusion that Stannis will win. But Roose is a very very shrewd man, so I don't see him going down so easy. I just hope Lord Lamprey survives this battle, his Frey pie stunt endeared him immensely to me.

    I've also been waiting to see where the Blackfish ends up.
    Option 1: He's heading the BwB, the anti-unCat faction.
    Option 2: He's laying low and will end up in the Vale once Alayne becomes Sansa.

    We can deal with tags when book 6 comes.
    What are the rules on the released chapters of Winds of Winter? None of the ones I'm familar with have enormous implications to the story as far as I'm aware but for courtesy would it be preferred if any discussion of them were kept in spoiler tags?

    ps very happy that this thread exists

    Yeah, those aren't technically released and you'd have to go well out of your way through various sources to get access to them, so yes, spoiler tag anything *after* book 5.
    To support Viz hosting all Jump manga for FREE and day of release, Arlong Park will now support the official release.

    Please do not post threads when scan sites release their version, and just discuss those releases in the spoiler thread.

    Is there in-story justification why Euron Greyjoy supposedly has a slitted, crow-like eyeball? Is it akin to Brynden River's strange, blood-colored and raven-shaped birthmark as a sign of great magical potential?

    I imagine the Frey situation will be long resolved by entirely different parties by then.

    Manderly's surprise reveal as a shrewder than appeared man is setting up something interesting.

    Nope, I don't think so. There is a great mystery about that man in general. I imagine both his eyes, the one that is covered and the one that is not, have some symbolic significance.

    But will he really bother with the Freys in the South? I imagine his designs center on restoring his rightful liege-lord as the Warden of the North. Now that his heir is back to White Harbour, I think he'll restrict his personal revenge to crushing the Freys that have ventured North.
    But then, he lost a son at the Red Wedding too, so you never know.

    I feel that a guy that enjoys baking freys into pies and then eating them would just be waiting for the right opportunity to go down to the twins and slaughter everyone.

    Well you already have the BwB and Stoneheart killing Freys and Frey supporters left and right. By the time he gets down there there probably won't be any left.

    I think he'll have his plate full with outwitting Roose Bolton (one of the sharpest tools in the shed) and taking care of the Freys in the North, not to mention ensuring that the North's interests are not compromised in the face of Stannis' ambition.
    If everything goes according to his plan, he's essentially Rickon's regent till the latter comes of age. Not to mention the only competent adult Lord the North has left, apart from the people stuck in the Neck.
    Also what Bobjr said.

    What happened to all those guys Robb sent north before the Red Wedding with the letter making Jon legitimate?

    Stuck in the Neck, along with whoever was carrying Ned's bones.

    I think Roose knows he's screwed though. He even tells Theon at one point that Ramsay is too psychotic to keep the shaky truce from collapsing, along with Stannis attacking.

    Stuck in the Neck, along with whoever was carrying Ned's bones.
    The Silent Sisters have Ned's bones, and we haven't heard anything from them since they left for the Neck and the North.

    Does this mean you don't plan to use any of those that died in the TV show and not in the books ?
    Not at all. If they are alive in the books, they are alive in the books, and may well turn up again. Irri (and Jhiqui) is still serving as Dany's handmaid, Rakharo remains one of her bloodriders, Mago will definitely show up again. You will learn the fate of Pyat Pree in WINDS. The Thirteen are still one of the factions contending for power in Qarth. You may see more of Alayaya and Chataya as well, and you will definitely hear more of Jeyne Westerling.
    interesting

    Further proof that TV continuity is diverging from book continuity - which in a way is nice, as it means there can still be surprises in the TV show for those who are very familiar with the books.

    Jeyne Westerling, then...could she have been pregnant with Robb's son after all?

    That's doubtful since her mother had been giving her potions against pregnancy

    Yeah, whilst telling it was a fertility aid if I recall correctly? But I wonder why else Jeyne would play as big a role in the story as Martin seems to be alluding to.

    If Jeyne is pregnant it would sure fuck up the TV show continuity if Robb actually had an heir. Wonder how they'd try to fix it.
