GAME_OF_THRONES_SEASON_5_2

HBO has released five new photos from “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” the sixth episode of Game of Thrones season 5.

The episode synopsis: Arya trains. Jorah and Tyrion run into slavers. Trystane and Myrcella make plans. Jaime and Bronn reach their destination. The Sand Snakes attack.

New HQ photos below the cut!

Directed by Jeremy Podeswa and written by Bryan Cogman, the team responsible for last week’s episode, this week features the return of Diana Rigg as Olenna Tyrell.  We can expect a lot of excitement in Dorne this Sunday- after all, the episode is named after the words of House Martell.

    1. So the storylines we know are in from the preview and these photos:

      Arya
      Winterfell
      Dorne
      Tyrion/Jorah Roadshow
      King’s Landing

      I wonder if there’ll be no Meereen or The Wall in this ep… that would make Sansa the only person in every episode

    2. I guess we won’t see much more of Stannis this season.

      Probably will be the following events in the finale

      Wall: Hardhome (and Jon returning and getting stabbed as the opening shocker in the first ep of season 6)
      KL: Walk of Shame, possible Varys returning
      Winterfell: Don’t think we get the battle this season bc of the wall story line, although I don’t think there will be a pink letter in the tv show
      Arya: Merci chapter marking the end of her training as assassin
      Mereen: Dany mounting Drogon and hopefully the return of some Dothraki; Jorah and Tyrion outside of Mereen
      Dorne: I have absolutely no idea.

      Also, when do we think

      the Battle of Winterfell is happening? Episode 10? 9? 8? Season 6?

      99% its not happening this season.

      By the photos released and info we have no “great” battle other than

      Hardhome had been filmed.
      All that is certan is that Stannis camp gets attacked (by Ramsey) …

    4. Trystane looks really like a Targaryen.. There’s my last big hope, that he is getting revealed as Aegon Targaryen, sixth of his Name. Would make sense because the show-only-viewers can better identified with him and know better where he belongs too. I am really sure that we get the reveal after the fire and blood speech from Doran.

      They build it up very much this season, so I guess we’ll see a streamlined version of it in ep. 9/10. Doesn’t really make sense to build up something, get really close to it and leave it for S6.

    6. Hoyti Von Totiy,

      Well it’s been referenced continually throughout the season and both sides are preparing for it now in Episode 5 so it structurally has to happen this season unless either 1) Stannis dies beforehand or 2) Winterfell implodes and the Boltons die beforehand.

      Also we know they filmed

      a big battle in the snow and I’m not sure Hardhome is a battle

      John,

      Hardhome is episode 8 not the finale

      Another Cogman episode? Sweet. Maybe the Trystane/Myrcella dialogue won’t be so painful after all…

      We can only hope.

      The Dornish costumes are quite elaborate. Perhaps not among my favorites but they certainly convey a different locale and a different life style.

    9. Mormont,

      Hoyti Von Totiy,

      This is something I’ve been curious about as well. I will note that trailers tend to focus on and showcase a few big end of season events (last year it was 408’s RV v. Mountain battle and the battle at the Wall, this year it seems to be 508’s Hardhome and (509? 510?) Daznak) while keeping other major events under wraps (ex. 410’s Bloodraven).

      We have seen images of Stannis in the woods somewhere with blood on his face, so I suspect we will get some sort of conflict, but who knows if that will be the battle for Winterfell. Given how much the writing this season has referenced Stannis marching south to “take” Winterfell, it seems like a reasonable end to his S5 arc. GoT has a long history of foreshadowing. Recently, for instance, Grayscale.

      That being said, you would think that if there is a major Stannis v. Boltons battle, we would have at least gotten a brief, non-revealing shot in the trailer. In any case, I am very eager to see where his arc ends up.

      I agree with this assessment, with the caveat that Tyrion will have appeared in all six episodes to date as well. So far, the only main characters who have appeared in every episode are Tyrion, Sansa, Jon, Sam, and Stannis. If we’re including recurring characters, then Olly and – perhaps surprisingly to some – Edd have appeared in all five episodes as well.

      It seems virtually certain that Stannis will not appear this week, and I would be very surprised if we got any scenes at the Wall after all the focus it received in the previous episode (ditto for Meereen). So after this week, Tyrion and Sansa will indeed be the only characters who have appeared in every episode this season.

      *Show speculation based on casting and filming news below*

      Both Tyrion and Sansa actually have a good chance to appear in all 10 episodes this year – the first time since Season 2 (Tyrion) that’s happened for any character. Sansa is confirmed for Episodes 7 and 8 by the synopses, and Winterfell is confirmed for at least one of the David Nutter episodes (if not both) thanks to the CVs of Charlotte Hope (Myranda) and at least two actors who will be playing Bolton soldiers. Tyrion is confirmed for Episode 9 by set photos and almost certainly isn’t sitting out the finale, so that just leaves 7 and 8 – both which are likely to be necessary to facilitate his initial meeting with Daenerys (likely at the training grounds for the fighting pits that we see in the trailers)! So I would guess that there is a very strong chance that Tyrion will be in all 10 episodes. Sansa, meanwhile, will definitely be in at least 9 episodes – and possibly all 10 as well.

    13. I look forward to Jorah opening up more to Tyrion now, as that photo suggests. I wonder if he’ll inquire about his brother’s missing hand, and ask how that worked out for him, if it was easy to take off, etc.

      With the Dornish action if Bronn is going down this might be the episode he does. I hope he just ends up in jail as with the long ago leaked script.

      Oleanna vs Cersei will be good, but even better will be her vs. the High Sparrow and Littlefinger, because she/they can match wits. I guess Littlefinger will want her to move against the people who destroyed his brothel, but Oleanna will be afraid for her grandson. Cue conflicts and the line from the first trailer to Littlefinger, “They won’t even find what’s left of you.”

      I think no battle this season. And Shireen going down somehow, it’s been foreshadowed so much. Either killed during a raid or sacrificed when Stannis’ back is turned. Then just when Stannis is going to unleash hell on the Boltons, winter comes and throws everything in disarray, and they don’t have to pay for another battle.

      Literally nothing suggests she won’t be. It’s clear that when she appears in an episode this season, she will have longer scenes.

      I’m sure he’ll fight like a berserker if he really gets stuck in. Ferocious, and wreckless – but then, that scene with Yara featured Ramsay Snow. Ramsay Bolton might avoid the frontlines altogether, seeing himself as too valuable a target.

      I don’t think so. I think she will surender without a battle, for Stannis’s suport against Euron in S6.

      And she hates Ramsey because he humiliated her in S4. Maybe that’s the reason she lost at Kingsmoot in the show.

      Stannis didn’t mention that he wants to take DM in the show.

      I saw Nell Free Tiger at an episode of Young Inspector Morse. It’s a british crime series. She had a fairly big part in that episode and she was very, very good. She played a teenager at a boarding school but her performance was not only convincing but paid attention to all kinds of details without the least sign of mannerism.
      In the same series Anton Lesser plays a rather boring and dull Chief Superintendent. He is good but because of the type of roll he has in it he is not so remarcable. What a huge difference with his Qyburn!

    24. mau,

      That if they mention Euron at all, I would love it but still can’t see that coming… I’m pretty sure the “Stannis finds trouble on the road” summary will have to do with this, and we’ve seen him with blood on his face so there will probably be a battle scene, and I don’t see it being the battle of ice this early so I’m 90% this will be it.

    25. Joffrey’s Cunt,

      It can be, but it didn’t have any build-up.

      He didn’t mention DM in 5 episodes. Stannis won’t be in E6, so they will just have battle in E7 out of nowhere?

      I’m not sure.

      Sam mentioned Oldtown. So he will go there 99%. And Euron will attack Oldtown in TWOW and in S6 I’m sure.

      Boltons need to die this season and the show needs new villains.

      One of those promos showed Littlefinger talking to Olenna about how “The past is the past. The future is all that’s worth discussing”, in a rather menacing manner. I’m guessing he’s telling her that he’s either terminating their alliance or seeking a serious renegotiation of the terms.

      Jared,

      I’m still surprised that Lena won’t be in all ten. I was sure she’d hit that mark again this year, given how big her story in AFFC/ADWD is and the showrunners’ love for King’s Landing.

    27. I don’t have high expectations for the Myrcella-Trystane scenes. Hopefully they are short and to the point.

      We get it, they love each other and want to be together, but neither family wants that, unless Doran’s big plan is to crown Myrcella, which I hope isn’t the case.

      I disagree that the show needs new villains. The Boltons are finally starting to be more fleshed out as characters. We already lost Joffrey and Tywin last season. We need villains with staying power. As much as I love Stannis, I’m sort of hoping for a big twist in the show and books regarding the battle of Winterfell.

      I would say it’s not going to be a particulary big battle but more of a massacre by Stannis army on the ironborn, probably a small scene like when he smashed Mance Rayder, only this time we will probably see him kicking some ass.

      As for the Boltons, They are really building them up this season as the big villains, I don’t really think they will die now, there hasn’t been any build up for the battle of ice and for something that big would have shown at least a few fight scenes in the trailer. I guess it will happen in the begining of season 6, that would be an explosive way starting a season. And one can only hope the Boltons are defeated, and Euron makes an appearance.

      I’m really looking forward to Dorne in this episode. I think in the hands of Cogman and Podewsa, especially if their pairing last week was any indication, we’re in for a treat, and hopefully more viewers will be won over (except for those who will never be won over, because they hated Dorne in the books, and resent its inclusion in this season). I’m also wondering when

      Varys will show up there, which in my mind is a matter of “when,” not “if.”

      I can’t wait to see The Queen of Thornes, again. Littlefinger isn’t stupid enough to think he will be able to handle her as easily as he did Lysa, but I can’t help but think he may be a little in over his head with Olenna. This may be where we see his hubris really bite him in the ass.

      Every storyline needs climax. They will leave Sansa, Brienne, Stannis, Roose, Ramsey, Yara, Theon on cliffhanger?

      I think that would be terrible.

      It would be just like the Hobbit and Smaug’s death. They cut that from the second movie where that climax belonged and it felt so rushed in The Battle of the 5 armies.

      I understand your point of view, I’m just trying to work this out by logic from what I’ve seen so far, They’ve only mention too big action scenes, being Daznak’s and Hardhome so that’s why I don’t believe the battle of ice will happen this season, despite the fact I would like it to happen. Unless they do the same George did, by not showing what happened, and end with the cliffhanger of the pink letter

      Their big setpieces are Hardhome and Daznak. Something could still be hidden a la skeleton party from last year, but it’s just too easy for them to follow the books and save any battle in the north for the next year. Cliffhangers will be Theon absconding with Sansa for Stannis, Brienne and The North Rememberers up to tricks in Winterfell’s crypts, and winter coming and postponing a definite outcome to the battle.

      A climax will come in Theon being someone other than Reek, I bet, and Sansa being something other than endlessly tortured.

      Also: it really seems like we’ll get a reveal on R + L = J this year in episode 9.

      Yes I know, that we didn’t have many proofs that battle will happen this season, but it makes sense to happen.

      We didn’t have any proof of Kevan’s return, of Yara’s return, of Oldtown, of Sansa in WF (before trailer)…

      Maybe that battle won’t be real battle. Maybe something will happen before the battle. Something that will decide the winner before the fight.

    49. Some people here are mixing up the prospective

      Battle of Ice and a Battle of Winterfell. The Battle of Ice that is about to happen at the beginning of The Winds of Winter isn’t in Winterfell, and even if Stannis wins the battle he will not have the castle yet.
      That established, the Battle of Winterfell itself (if there is a proper battle at all) will be in season six, but we’ll get an equivalent of the Battle of Ice this season, except simpler —no frozen lake traps, no Manderlys or Freys; just Ramsay vs Stannis.

      And we HAVE glimpsed it. There has been footage of a military camp on fire (which can only be the Baratheon camp), and of Stannis with blood on his face. So, as was set up in “Kill the Boy”, Roose will use Ramsay —he will send him out to surprise Stannis, instead of waiting for him to siege the castle. Just as Stannis’ surprise attack at the Wall, it will be a surprise to the audience, hence why we’ve seen so little of it in the trailers. But we’ve seen SOME of it.

      Yeah you’re right, They are two different things, I just think it’s odd we didn’t catch any glimpse of it from the trailers, unless it’s going to be a small fight scene or offscreen, leaving the cliffhanger with some version of the pink letter.

    52. Luka Nieto,

      They combined many battles in one in S4E9.

      I think that Ramsey and (maybe) Stannis will die in the battle, and then Roose will be killed by “The North remembers” people inside the WF.

      So, if Stannis dies, Sansa and LF will rule the North in S6.

      Even if Stannis wins, we will see power struggles between Stannis and Sansa/LF in the North in S6.

      The Boltons served their purpose. I just don’t see what they can bring to this story any more.

    53. peez,

      Literally nothing? What about… you know, her appearances thus far? She’s only been in two episodes out of five so far, yet she’s still one of the characters with most screen-time this season. Episodes two and three have an immense focus on Arya. In fact, even though episode two is named after her storyline, I was surprised to see she had even more screen-time and plot in the next episode.

      Joffrey’s Cunt,

      We have.

      The Baratheon camp on fire. Stannis with blood on his face. They’ll be attacked. In episode five, Ramsay has just pledged to help his father however he asks. I’m pretty sure Roose will ask him to surprise Stannis on his march.

      Oh, I hope not. Once obsidian levels the playing field (or serves as a deterrent), the 7 kingdom inter-hate shall continue as robustly as ever. Hopefully dragons and CotF play a part in WW management too. And let’s root for Sam the Slayer to rekindle the magic that keeps the Wall standing!

      More Doran, please! I guess the show will only refer to Nymeria as ‘Nym’. They wouldn’t want to confuse the people who remember that Arya’s Direwolf was named Nymeria. I’m almost surprised that they didn’t rename Jon Arryn so as not to have people confuse him with Jon Snow.

      Don’t think Yara will pop up in Stannis storyline the same way she did in the books for 2 reasons, the circumstances are absent and Carice Van Houten said she had scenes with Gwendoline Chrisite. So Brienne is most likely taking her role.

      Not to be argumentative, but how would dragonglass level the playing field when it only works on the WW and not on the zombies they’ve created. Humans will still have to fight them and they’re very strong, unfeeling and impervious to anything except beheading and/or fire, right? So yeah, dragonglass will help but it won’t level the playing field. Now, dragons, THEY are a field leveler!

      Ok…a partial leveler then. But note that dragons were not a factor when the WWs were pushed back the first time. What did Brandon the Builder (and the CotF) know? Sam will uncover something that will serve as a deterrent…possibly something hiding in plain sight…

      And when you add into it that a fair portion of the human army is likely to end up joining the army of the dead being more of a problem, but yeah the dragons are definately a field leveler or quite possible a field destroyer 🙂 I for one am looking forward to seeing a few undead unsullied 😀

    77. Yara potentially being back could throw up some interesting scenarios. I imagine she’ll have to have some interaction with Stannis and/or the Boltons. Wonder if that lazy last leech will finally get it’s act together. Perhaps Yara will strike a deal with Stannis on hearing of her fathers death to bring the Iron Islands to his cause only when she heads home to take the throne, Euron is already there and in control. Either way , the Iron Islands attacking The Reach and Oldtown would be interesting. Hoping for Euron next season as I think the show could do with more antaognists and he’s made for TV but I still think it’s a longshot.
      I don’t think the battle at Winterfell will be this season. They’ve jsut got the Boltons to where they should be as characters so I’d like to enjoy them for a bit longer.
      Also got hope that Trystane and Dorne will act as a proxy for Young Griff and his faction. Would be a good way of streamlining, keeping Dorne relevant and stopping Dany’s march on the throne seeming so inevitable.

      No. With respect to Trystane, yes, since the show has actively replaced numerous factors in that storyline (no Arianne, no Quentyn, Jorah getting greyscale, etc.). But with respect to the II, we still don’t know what purpose those characters serve, and it doesn’t seem like anything else has been set up to do what Euron or Victarion are going to do. So it seems at the least not UNreasonable to anticipate them in s6.

      If folks could figure out how to make projectile points in this world over 10,000 years ago, some of which were fashioned from obsidian, I’m guessing folks in Westeros could, too. In an archaeology class I took in college, we actually practiced the technique used to make obsidian projectile points. It’s called pressure flaking.

      Edit – Shit, sorry, I didn’t read your post closely enough, but, yes, I’d guess long blades could be made, too, although I’d think projectile points would be better. You can keep a greater distance from your opponent.

      Knapping obsdian into something as big as a sword would be tricky, but its definitely not impossible.

      I don’t think a full-on obsidian sword would be practical for fighting, though. Obsidian is basically naturally occurring glass, and its almost as easy to break, especially when you work it into something thin like a blade.

      They could go with something like a macuahuitl, which is like a cricket bat with obsidian blades embedded in the edges. I don’t know if it would feel very “Westerosi”, though.

If the wall falls and winter spread further and further South then the corpses will be reanimated on the South side as well. The wall has to fall at some stage, and the event is properly not far away.

      Ghost:

      Stannis obviously gathered or captured a bunch of the Wildlings after the battle of the wall. Perhaps Jon will let them through the tunnel and settle them in The Gift. Jon would watch over the precedings with Ghost. Varamyr will most likely be among the group, and perhaps he might even tell Jon that he a warg. Episode 7 is named the The Gift. Which refers to Arya, the land The Gift and perhaps the gift or ability of warging. The rest of the Wildlings who got away are obviously at Hardhome, and that will be for episode 8

      As for the spoiler speculation regarding Tyene:

      I think the nude site spoilers are correct and Tyene will poison Bronn, banter seductively with him in the cells and possibly give him an antidote. Maybe she ‘turns’ him to their mission? The shot in a trailer of a naked longer haired woman seems to be a braided bravosi prostitute who is more likely to intersect with the Meryn Trant/Arya storyline.

      In terms of possible developments with Stannis, I fear his camp will be ambushed and routed ahead of schedule by Ramsay, Melisandre will have seen something in the fires regarding Jon and be wanting to go back to Castle Black.

      The preview scene where

      Selyse is on the snowy ground seems less a collapse while crying/sobbing tragically and more a prone posture because she’s done something bad and been thrown down in front of the soldiers. I wouldn’t put it past her to try to burn Shireen to lift a blizzard due to lack of food, or just want a favourable battle against the Boltons.

      I do think that Stannis will end up sieging Winterfell. The Boltons know that their new fort is well stocked, defensible etc. They will not just meekly march out to meet Stannis on an honourable battlefield. It isn’t in their best interests to. They’d be wiser to wait out Stannis’ army, let them experience the cold on meager rations.

        Quote  Reply

    110. mau,

      I think (assuming she really is in and that she runs into Stannis) that the Kingsmoot still hasn’t happened yet in the show. I think she will tell Stannis that they can help eachother- she can give him Westeros’s biggest and best fleet if he helps her dethrone Euron (who took the Iron Islands by force) through a Kingsmoot- which is part of the Iron Islands’ law. And I think she will use Theon for it, because generally women can’t be the heirs and she needs Theon in order to demand the Kingsmoot (where she hopes to prove herself to the Ironborn). It’s a bit different from the books, but I think it could make for a great season 6 storyline. The fact that Oldtown seems to be in and that it looks like Euron may go there in the books (as well as be Dany’s first big bad in Westeros) only increases the chance we can still see him. And if we do, I think season 6 will look a bit like this:

      Dany: after settling matters in the Slaver’s Bay once and for all (and potentially recruiting some Dothraki), Dany finally heads for Westeros. She first lands in Dorne (probably in the midseason), striking a deal with Doran to (eventually) marry Trystane and in that she gets the Dornish army. Doran suggests that the first thing she should do as queen is save her people, and stop Euron’s raids in Oldtown (and maybe one of the reasons he’ll push for it is that Sarella his niece is also in the middle of that mess). Oldtown would then be the big battle of the season- with dragons and ships and everything that won’t happen in Meereen because of the cuts.

      Yara/Theon/Euron: after helping Stannis take Winterfell, he’ll send them off to the Iron Islands. There, they call for a Kingsmoot (which will be Euron’s big introductory scene where he reveals he intends to steal a dragon). After some machinations, Euron takes half of the Iron Fleet and begins ravaging the Reach. Cersei allows Loras to go and fight him back, which leads to a big fight scene between Loras and Euron (and I’m guessing Loras dies). From there, Euron heads for Oldtown and the big final battle (so he’ll appear in around 4-5 episodes before his death). Theon and Yara meanwhile… I have no idea.

      Sam: Obviously, Sam would be involved. After stopping by Braavos and leaving in the same ship as Jaqen (since he’s there in the books and it’s all too convenient). He’d learn to be a Maester, interact with Sarella and find some big secret that’ll help in the battle against the White Walkers, or maybe even figure out Jon’s parentage, and he’d also direct Dany to the wintery invasion that Westeros is about to suffer (and I’m guessing it will coincide with the Wall coming down, or whatever the White Walkers’ big opening attack will be).

    111. mau,

      Same. I think and hope that the Stannis vs the Boltons situation will be resolved in season 5. And if not, I hope they at least pull the Pink Letter situation and have Stannis fake his death oyside of Winterfell (and duping both Jon, the NW and the viewers into thinking Stannis is dead- which is also sort of a conclusion to that storyline, until it’s revealed Stannis is alive).

    112. I’m really looking forward for Loras’s trial this week because the outcome is very uncertain. I doubt he will be excecuted for homosexuality as I recall it is not considered as a deadly sin in the Faith of the Seven, on the same rank as adultery and bastards fathering, even if Sparrows are extremists. More importantly, I really doubt Olenna and Margaery would let this happen as he is the only heir to Highgarden (Willas & Garlan being cut in the show). Thus, I really believe Loras, Shireen, Trystane, Robin and Yara can’t die on the show as they are the only hope to further their family name. But I forgot that in Shireen’s case Gendry would very well be legitimized (he even embodies the Baratheon traits).

In this case, Littlefinger may kill Olenna too, given their roles in Joffrey’s death and he can cover his tracks with her dead. I’m not sure Kevan returns to KL, unless it’s for Cersei’s Walk of Shame. He may live on the show and be at Casterly Rock.

      Arya going on the mission to Oldtown is an interesting thought, but given that it was Jaqen in the books and that Jaqen has been reintroduced in the show… And Arya has other important things to do in TWOW that don’t involve Oldtown, IMO returning to the Riverlands and dealing justice to the Freys (given that Nymeria is there, and in the books I’m also assuming she meets Stoneheart). Having Arya go to Oldtown means sacrificing everything she is meant to do in the lead-up to the endgame, which I don’t think they’ll do (I think what they’re doing with Sansa and Jaime- scrapping whole storylines and making up new ones- will never happen to show’s central main characters: Arya, Dany, Jon and Tyrion). My bet is on Jaqen, which conveniently allows him to stay in the show even after Arya leaves Braavos.

      As far as I’m aware, the Aegon portion of the books have been cut. Which is rubbish if you ask me.
      Intelmaster,

      /hugs fellow BSG fan back. Thank you! I loved that show to bits, despite its many flaws. Glad you like my avatar. 😉

      Re: The ‘bullies’ cast for Castle Black and possible ep 7 direwolf Ghost appearance

      I think ‘Derek’ & ‘Brant’ have been cast for a scene where Gilly gets bullied for being a wildling – due to rising tensions. Sam will come to the rescue and use Ghost to threaten or attack the two men so that they back off. Thus leading to him finally getting to have sex with a very grateful Gilly (as mentioned in that nude scene spoiler).

      This is all just speculation based on various bits of spoiler info.

      As a mostly show watcher, I’m really not seeing any show indication of Trystane being sent off to Dany or being fAegon. I think it’s more likely Doran wants to make a match between Trystane & Myrcella. Otherwise why keep Myrcella at a Sunspear at all? As a hostage? We’ve seen snippets where it seems pretty clear the two are in love.

      There is also that upcoming scene where the two of them are in attendance at the same sit-down meeting with Doran, Ellaria, Hotah and Jaime. They’re sitting side by side. I just am not seeing Doran saying, “sure, Jaime, you can take Myrcella home now, I’ve got other plans for Trystane anyway”, can you?

      Doran definitely doesn’t want Trystane to marry Myrcella, otherwise they’d already have married (both of them are old enough in the show and apparently in love). Doran wants Trystane to marry Dany.

    124. Khal Tommen,

      If Olenna is killed, I think Flora Linden may have hit on how it will happen, namely

      at the hands of Littlefinger. That I could easily see. I’ll definitely be interested to see exactly what Varys does, though…whether he’ll go to Dorne, as I think he will, or if he goes back to King’s Landing (whether he goes to Dorne, or not). Your speculation has gotten me to thinking about all that, though, so thanks!

      Mr Fixit,

      So say we all! 🙂

      If that were the case, one would assume he’s been working behind the scenes to make that happen. Secret negotiations etc. Except, we just had Dany make a political decision to marry Hizdar in the last episode. Why would she do that if she’s already had an offer from Dorne? It certainly throws a major spanner in the works of Doran’s plan. Makes it look like his secret plan is so secret it’s just a fantasy in his head. Doran is supposed to be politically savvy, so I don’t see how Trystane/Dany makes sense on the show.

      Them cutting Quentyn makes his plotting a bit in the fantasy region, yes. But the show has had worse inconsistencies (and we all know Hizdahr won’t last).

      Besides, if you cut Doran’s epic speech and reveal (on top of Arianne and Aegon and pretty much everything that happens in Dorne in the books) what’s the point in including the storyline at all? It seems painfully obvious to me that regardless of how much Doran banks on wedding his son to Dany, he’s definitely a huge Targaryen supporter (and probably one of the co-conspirators Varys spoke about).

    127. Dumb question – since Rhaegar chose to run off with a Stark over his own Dornish wife, thus igniting an entire battle….why would the Dornish give a flying fuck about the Targs? Simplistic I know, but that’s always bugged me.

    128. jentario,

      I like the idea of him being a big Targaryen supporter. I confess I don’t remember much of the 3 books I read in terms of details – it was so long ago, but I do read sullied speculations based on book events. I am sure D&D will still give Doran a fantastic speech which will reveal his true intentions, no matter what. Just trying to parse out what seems plausible with regard to show cues so far, since the Quentyn/fAegon stuff doesn’t seem to be happening. It’s really hard to speculate based on only what’s aired so far (ignoring Book spoilers), but hopefully this upcoming episode will give us some more clues or at least flesh out the Dorne characters more.

      I could see your spec working if Dany actually secretly suspects Hizdar is behind the SoTH events and plans to expose him. Then the ‘wedding’ is more of a sham/trap for him. But otherwise, while we may think Hizdar is soon-to-be toast, there’s nothing yet to indicate that Dany thinks he will die soon.

      Pigeon:

      Actually you make a really good point. Why would Doran be a Dany supporter since Elia was basically put aside by Rhaegar and pretty much paid the price for his infidelity.

    129. Pigeon,

      I don’t know that the infidelity would bother them as much as manner of her death and who ordered it, possible they see a Targ restoration as the lesser of two evils as opposed to leaving the lannisters in power ? Just a thought

      Flora Linden,

      Does it qualify as Resting Bitch Face?

      So it’s not just me who thinks Trystane looks ALOT like Jon???? I thought Targaryens had silver hair and purple eyes……….Daenerys and Viserys type. What genetic variation is this……wait…Tyrion’s hair description in the books was a mix of blond and black hair……WHAT’S HAPPENING??????? oh, I know;the plot thickens!!!!!!

    131. honeyimhome,

      No, you are not the only one who thinks Jon and Trystane look a lot alike.

      Sure, Targs are known for their silver hair and purple eyes, but Targs. and Martells have been marrying for a long time. At least I know Dorne was brought into the 7 kingdoms fold by the union of a Targ. and a Martell. So, while if Trystane is Aegon, he’s Elia’s kid, so could easily have the Martell features, Jon’s features could be due to genes passed down through the Martell side from a few generations before. This could sound very far fetched, but my hair color is non-existent in my family in recent generations. You have to go back to my great grandfather to find it.
