Does that theory relate in any way to the story of Azor Ahai and Lightbringer? I have not read the books in a while, but do we know what happened to Lightbringer?

The Dragon has three heads is about how many dragon riders there will be and that the Targaryen sigil has a three-headed dragon. Considering Dany birthed 3, it would make sense that there be three riders.

I always find it very obvious that Lightbringer is essentially the same name as Dawn, the sword of Ser Arthur Dayne. Dayne was the last Kingsguard guarding Lyanna and Jon Snow (theory) at the Tower of Joy and would have killed Ned but for the intervention of Howland Reed. Ned returned Dawn to his sister, Ashara, who threw herself from her window in morning for either her brother, her still born child, or isn't really dead. Side-note, Ser Barristan was in love with her but never told her.

Major spoiler.

Are you sure it's three riders? What if warg-Jon moves his spirit into one of the dragons now he's dead?

Watching the series from season 1 again. Man the actors were so young back in those days. And Arya gained so much girth.

How was Ned Starks father and brother executed by the Mad King?

Burnt alive IIRC.

Rickard - his father - was tried for treason for Brandon - his brother - threatening the Crown Prince. He chose trial by combat. King Aeyrs chose fire as his champion and roasted Rickard in his armor in the throne room suspended from above a bonfire. Meanwhile, Brandon was tied by the neck and he tried to save his father and strangled himself to death.

I wouldn't count on it.

I don't think Jon is dead. He may be placed in an ice cell. Mayhaps dead but burned by Melisandre and reborn as Azor Ahai. Who knows. For the watch!

Terrible episode. Completely unrealistic. From make believe creatures like giants and wooly mammoths attacking a 700 foot wall of ice, to Jon Snow's pitiful bastard sword technique. GRRM just needs to learn more about physics before he tries to write any more fantasy novels. I demand nothing less.

I think I'm going to give up on this mess, and go back to watching shows that are actually grounded in reality like Trailer Park Boys.

No. I don't understand the collective boner over Ygritte when ya got the Red Witch and Margaery who are both about 1 million times hotter.

Yes

A boner for Ygritte =! no boner for Margaery. Margaery offering some anal to Renly was very boner inducing.

She just seems broke face to me. If I was going to marry her I'd need her weight in silver.

Marry? A shag in the snow, mate.

I wasn't exactly keeping a running tally, but it felt like a LOT more Night's Watch got killed than they really reflected at the end. They're supposed to only have ~100 guys and they showed Tormund, the various Thenns, and Ygritte kill at least 30 by themselves.

Also think it would have been more effective if the wildling actually had shitty scavenged and improvised weapons. The Thenns all get shiny broadaxes? They were supposed to be lucky to have a metal weapon at all.
