I have a few comments on the preview.
First, someone should explain to Dany how the line of succession works. She was not “born to rule”. Rhaegar was. After his death, Viserys was. And then Drogo was, but he died too. Dany has done some great work to make herself a contender, but when you’re born the third child after two older brothers, you aren’t “born” to do anything but marry a lord from another house. Under different circumstances in which Robert’s Rebellion didn’t happen, she probably would have married Loras Tyrell or maybe even Robb Stark.
Cersei’s probably flying as high as she’s going to be right now. She’s got some valuable prisoners, an early victory, and a highly motivated suitor. As I said last week, keep an eye on Jaime. He’s not going to like it, but he’ll go along to a point.
Naive Bastard King is on his way to meet Refugee Queen. Will he bend the knee? I am leaning toward “yes”, but it will be disastrous for his position. The North isn’t going to tolerate that and might decide that they prefer the Idiot Queen over the Refugee Queen and Naive Bastard King. Then they’ll want to attack Bitch Queen. It’ll make for a great show until Undead King shows up.
Leave a comment. Spoilers, predictions, and insane theories welcome.
