Probably digitally removed it for the trailer. This is where Stannis as a character really takes off..

Who really tried to assassinate Bran? (Not Joffrey)

Does anyone else think that upon reflection that the smartest thing Joffrey ever did was kill Ned Stark?

He did for incredibly stupid reasons though, but unintentionally he extended his reign.

Had Cersei's plan worked and Ned had been sent to the wall, dont you think, that once Stannis raised the banners of war to claim the throne, Ned would have advised Robb to join his armies to Stannis'?

By Killing Ned, it created the situation where Stannis would have had to convince robb to join him off of his charisma, which as much as I love stannis he lacks.

With Ned alive, I firmly believe Robb would have sought out his advice, and out of honor and respect for the line of succession, Ned would have advised Robb to support Stannis's claim.

With his northern forces and the riverland forces of his mothers family, Robb could have held off/delayed the Lannister and Tyrell Reinforcements and given Stannis a clean shot at Kings Landing.

It definitely helped, he would have backed Stannis's claim per his father's wishes.

Had quite a bit of downtime at work the last few days.. Came up with some directions I think are likely to happen.

Dany and Victorian arrive in the Iron Islands (Aegon the Conqueror landed on the opposite side of Westeros on a small island), not sure what happens to Euron but Dany launches her attack on Westeros in the Westerlands. Tyrion is given Casterly Rock. Tyrion kills Cersei (Valonquar).

Dorne allies with (F)Aegon, (F)Aegon and Arianne are married. (F)Aegon will secure the Stormlands.

Iron Throne, remaining Lannisters and Tyrells are weak. I think Jaimie (I believe he survives uncat) is able to save Tommen and smuggle him to Casterly Rock, maybe under a new name or not, as ward to Tyrion. Jaime either takes the Black or dies, he'll serve no other king/queen. Myrcella is likely fuct.

Blackfish escapes to the Vale, verifies Sansa, helps Sansa oust LittleFinger. She'll Marry SweetRobin, kill LittleFinger (no way he willingly gives up Lord Paramount of the Riverlands, which was given to him by people no longer in power). Sansa, the Lady of the Vale, frees the Riverlands and restores Edmure to Riverrun and Lord Paramount.

I think that Jaime is going to kill Cersei, not sure about the rest.

I think so too.

Right now I'm mostly interested in the Jon Snow parentage thing. I kind of hope it is important and not just the result of Ned banging some tart (I've spent way too much time thinking about it for it to be that lol). I'm kind of hoping he is the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna. That theory seems to be the most attractive at the moment.

Anyone have any other ideas on it?

I don't think Victorion makes it to the iron islands. I think Dany just takes his ships. 100% Tyrion won't kill Cersei. It will be Jaime, I believe Cersei was born first so technically Jaime is her little brother. And I remember he mentions them coming into this world together insinuating they'll leave together. I wonder if Blackfish will even show up, maybe he'll show up to move a plot forward then die. Just don't see how he's still important. I think Sansa will somehow marry Littlefinger after offing Robin, then she'll double cross Lord Baelish.
