I love machiavellian characters. It'll never happen but I'd read a whole book on the rise and fall of Petyr Baleish. Unfortunately I don't see him making it through the series. 6th book yes, 7th book I think he's finished.

Im a littlefinger fan as well, would like to see more of him.. Although brevity is why I like him so much.. His portions are few but potent.. A big reson for liking more has to do with the actor.. He didn't just personify the character, but he enhanced his charm.

gotta be honest, i'm not a big fan of the dude. i think he pulls off the look well enough, though that may only be because i watched game of thrones before i started reading song of ice and fire. but i liked him way more as carcetti in the wire... he's got a strange kind of hesitant enunciation at times, awkward like instead of rolling off his tongue like you expect everything should with baelish. it worked great when his character was a councilman-turned-mayor suddenly thrust into the spotlight and struggling to adjust to that level of attention, in a way it brought the character to life even though looking closely enough it was just poor delivery of the lines.

with littlefinger, the devious puppet master never without a carefully phrased quip on his tongue... it just doesn't work. he particularly struggled the scenes between he and varys, who's actor is absolutely excellent (and a far better character than the one described in the book... thank god there's no giggling).

Wow. I can't believe so many posts were made since my last post in this thread and I didn't notice them.

I've been wondering about something that might strengthen R+L=J.

In ASoS when Arya meets Edric Dayne he tells her that he and Jon had the same milk mother, Wylla.

We find out Wylla was in service to house Dayne as a milk mother for many years, who Edric used because his mother couldn't provide him with milk.

Could it be that...when Ned was on the road from the Tower of Joy to Starfall to return Arthur Dayne's sword he realized that Lyannas son would need milk from milk mother because he was a new born and hired the services of Wylla the same way Edric's parents did?

This explains why Wyllas name is mentioned while R+L=J remaining a real possibility.

So I've been watching Breaking Bad lately and I'm only on Season 4. So I was talking to somone on facebook about it when another one of my friends (whos in to the GoT show) comments on purpose to be a dick a major spoiler so I go you know what?

He goes what...

I'm like "The Freys murder Robb Stark and Catelyn at a Wedding and Joffrey gets poisoned."

He just goes...Damn.

^^I believe it was implied Osha took him to Skagos. Manderly sent my main man Davos to go get him.

I figure he'll be a central character in the last two novels. Besides who the fvck wants to read 10 chapters about a 3 year old kid.

I'd read the hell out of 10 chapters about Osha.

They've never been central characters and I don't think they would have added much. But I know I'm not the only one that got hyped when Manderly was making his speech.

I don't know how much that matters. I've been surprised at by some of the character that end up getting their own chapters (Quentyn, Victarion, etc.).

Pretty important characters even if they aren't fan favorites.

Quentyn... okay.. I don't remember what Q did except die trying to get the dragons.. but it would appear the Sun set in the East.

Victorian got his own chapters to make for the fact he's going to bringing the ships Dany needs to get back home finally and break the siege on slavers bay.

Finally finished. Now gotta wait 2 (maybe more) years for the next one


Anyone else think that Aegon character is kinda sketchy? I really doubt that he's a Targaryen and has no 'right' to the throne. but that said, based on his training and character, I honestly feel like he'd make a better king than any of the other contenders save for maybe Stannis

Spoilers in white.....

Aegon is a blackfyre pretender. An obvious plant by Varys and Illeryrio to regain the throne. Read up on the background history if you're not too familiar with the Blackfyres
