I was rereading ADWD and I came across a golden haired character named Lewis Lanster, best archer of the windblown. While I know no particular skill with a bow has been mentioned for him, is there any chance of him being gerion?

Sure, in as much as any new character with blonde hair has a chance of being Gerion. But Gerion was never noted to be an exceptional archer, and I can think of no reason why he would change his name and join a Sellsword company.

But if you’re hankering for a Gerion-Secret-Identity theory, why not just accept that he’s the original husband to The Sailor’s Wife?

Do you think that Skagos is really as bad as it's been made out to be? Like Davos thinking he'd rather still be in the cells rather than sail there.

I assume that a man of the sea would know about the various places he could dock a ship, so I put a lot of stock in Davos’ opinion. I don’t see any reason to think that it might not be that bad.

Isn’t this Shaggydog licking Rickon’s fingers?

Well, the pronoun usage makes it sound like Rickon licks his own fingers. I suppose George could have fucked that up, but I think someone would have caught that. Maybe.

The 3rd karstark was captured and held at harrenhal, then sent to duskendale, and was recaptured. His uncle wouldn’t ransom him because he wanted to marry Alys, kill him, then steal his lordship

Oh yeah! Man, I haven’t read A Feast with Dragons covers to covers in over a year. I need to fix that, because my knowledge gaps are showing.

No, no, no. STANNIS is Napoleon. Tywin is Edward Longshanks.

Stannis isn’t charismatic enough to be Napoleon. Stannis is more like… I don’t know, General Patton. Damned hard to beat, but also damned hard to like in person.

Talk to racefortheironthrone about this. He’s the guy for stuff like this.

They’re not going to all be secret Targs…that’s too…ye olde prophesie. Not saying they’ll team up but I wonder if Euron might snag one. I don’t think GRRM would introduce a whole new antagonist if he was just going to faff around the Reach.

I think Euron’s role is to fuck up the war effort. Euron’s clearly insane, and I could see how he’d be greedy enough to try to steal one of the dragons right as it becomes clear they’re badly needed. Also, he’s bleeding the forces of the Reach like mad, when the War for Dawn is going to require every soldier the realm can muster. I hope he and Bran have some kind of psychic wizard duel, to be honest.

That’d be neat.

Elio's TitanCon reading wasn't thoroughly summarized, so it is not widely known, but it describes Cregan as leading a new Northern army, being Hand for a day, executing people, and then leaving. Roddy the Ruin is dead by this point, but it's also a different northern army.

Well, fifteen is old enough to lead an army and execute people. Look at Tywin. Or, more to the point, Robb Stark.

So whose your best guess for the third Targaryean of the prophecies if you don't think Tyrion is one? (Supporting the theory that Aegon is actually a fake or a Blackfyre)

All-Father George has said that all three heads need not be Targaryens. There’s no reason to say that if they are all going to be Targaryens.
