Wasn't it two times? Once when the dragons were born and then once when Drogon comes back and takes Dany away in the fighting pit?

Didn't Daenerys also get burned when she rode the dragons out of the pit

Didn't selmy talk about her hair appearing on fire? Didn't she wake up naked cause her clothes burned?

I think targaryens do not burn from fire I think the reason her brother died was because of the gold

This is one of the reasons I think aegon will be so convincing because he does have targaryen blood just bastard blood

Can't remember the whole ADWD situation, but I'm pretty sure GRRM said that Targs aren't fireproof.

GRRM said that hatching of the dragons was a miracle.

She ducked under Drogon's fire so it burned off only the hair, but she got burned when she pulled the spear out of his neck.

Multiple Targs in the past died of dragon or regular flame.

They burn just like anybody else.

Manderly's payout? He appears to be leading the underground movement against the Bolton's. If the Starks are restored, what honor/titles/lands are gifted to them? Think they get the Dreadfort?

Imo the Manderly's already have the best place in all of the north. They control white harbor it's the largest city in the north and it has plenty of the incomes of the north. They have the silver mines of the north I believe. Obviously they have to remit taxes to the overlords of the north which were the Starks.

I think the Starks chose to give the Manderlys control of white harbor because they were sure of their loyalty.

Honestly the dreadfort would be a downgrade for them. The Manderley's want to help the Starks because of how the Starks saved them after the Gardeners kicked them out of the south

I'm not suggesting they leave White Harbor, just annex the lands and the fortress of the Dreadfort.

They might get a part of some lands. In ACOK we see Wyman taking Hornwood, although he proclaims he just defends it from the Bastard. He seems to be pretty sincere in helping Starks just because of "the promise", so I am not sure what would he want.

He may also die pretty soon and we don't know much about what would his son do.

Some cadet branch may be set up there (although I am not sure there is any Manderly left for that, they do not seem to be a big family and Wyman's second son is dead).

The concern would of course be that they would be getting little too powerful with this and that could cause problems in the future.

I am afraid that Manderly might have hidden his plan too well, and if he dies, not enough people will have know the truth and might accidently side with bolten believing its manderly's wish.

Do any of you guys think the wall will come down? Or if the white walkers will somehow penetrate the wall and make their presence felt in the south? Also we know for a fact Obsidian can kill them, but its only speculation that valyrian steel can kill them right?

I'm not sure. But what I am sure about is that no matter what happens a fuck load of wildlings are going to die.

I think he's part of many, but might be the strongest house in the pact. Thus, he has more control of the "doings". He mentions that the North remembers and the mummers farce is almost done. That makes me think he might have some other houses or key individuals along side him.

I remember reading the spoilers for the book before I even read the book, but I went back read Tyrion's chapters and I could only imagine how devastating the Red Viper's death is for those who didn't know what was coming. Dude had that Jaimie Lannister swag without all the smug douchiness

Another thing is that I'm almost positive there will be eight books. Just too much stuff that has to happen in too little time. Doubt GRRM is gonna rush all the major events in a single book. If he can get eight books out, it would also kinda flow together

First 3- War of Five Kings and White Walker problems
Middle 2- Transition
Final 3- End Game
