    1. One quick note:

      Varys didn’t try to poison Daenerys. He only carried out an order (as he always does). However, he warned Jorah (remember the letter by the little boy?) who could stop the danger.

      Otherwise nice facebook recap, as ever.

    2. TOIVA,

      I had a different take. He did indeed send the order to kill Dany. At the time, he and Illyrio were behind a Viserys led invasion, and enraging Drogo was the best way to make that happen. At the time Dany was a nobody.

      Things changed, but Varys is still backing the Targs.

      Nope. In the show, the boy clearly says it is “a royal pardon”, not a warning. I seriously doubt Robert is signing any royal pardon for Jorah NOT to kill Daenerys.

      All that is well and good. But there’s no satisfactory explanation as to why Illyrio gave Daenerys three petrified dragon eggs as a wedding present, instead of say, a couple of personal slaves, some priceless jewels, a horse, or other more useful and valuable things.

    5. TOIVA,

      This is done by people that are uh.. shall we say, not paying as much attention to the story as we are.

      Anyway trying to make sense of Varys’ true allegiance in the show now makes even less sense than it does so far in the books. So trying to piece it together is a senseless task.

      The dragon eggs are priceless jewels. Leading theory is that Illyrio gave them to Daenerys in order to pay for a fleet to tranport the Dothraki to Westeros when the time was ripe.

      Personallly, I adhere to a different theory, but I can only explain that one by bookspoilers (which might not even be the same for the show

      ETA: Damn it, the edit function ate my spoiler brackets. I’ll just make a new post, with what I wanted to say in spoilers.

    7. Three eggs = three Targaryens (or to be more precise two real Targaryens and a Blackfyre/Brightflame descendant raised to think that he’s a Targaryen). Imo the eggs would have been used as some sort of bonding gift between the three supposed descendants of Mad Aerys. An egg for each Targaryen, thus quelling every rumours about Faegon’s legitimacy springing up. After all, if the last two living Targaryens recognized Faegon as their nephew and King, who else would be able to doubt him

    8. WeicheWotan,

      So much this. I’ve thought this on many occasions when people were like: “oh but remember back in AGOT, when -example- that was clearly forshadowing this -example- in this book that came out 20 years later.”

      Yeah, not buying it..
