    Jon is Lyanna and Rhaegar's son. Lyanna died in childbirth to him. I'm not sure if Lyanna was really brutally raped (as alleged by Robert) or whether she willingly (at some point) had sex with Rhaegar.

    Stannis isn't Azor Ahai. I'm thinking this might be Jon since he will be the light that turns back the dark in the North.

    Jon and Daenys will both not live to the end of the series, one or both will die.

    The Kingdom will be re-united into one kingdom under one king. I kind of want to say Jon but I wouldn't be surprised to find out he gives his life to protect the kingdoms south of the north.

    Bran will be one of the three heads of the Dragon.

    Arya isn't blind, this is a temporary state.

    A major theme of this book is plans go awry, I'd keep that in mind. (I am).

    Also, anyone who wants to get in, I'm thinking this prick might die and leave the series unfinished, so a death pool would be in order.

    Dany is azor ahai. Tyrion is going to be a head of the dragon. Sansa story in the vale should be very interesting.

    This was pretty clear.

    The speculated relationship between Lyanna and Rhaegar was likely consensual as seen by their actions toward one another at the Tournament of Harrenhal (I believe that's the correct one).

    Okay, I know this is really reaching but....


    I was thinking it's odd that two eunuchs are in the story and then noticed Varys disappeared before Belwas appeared. Also, Belwas appeared with his "squire" Arstan Whitebeard, really none other than Barristan Selmy.

    Belwas = Varys?

    +1

    Foreshadowed by Tyrion's saddle letting him ride?

    Edit: this thread is making me realize how little I remember. Arya is blind?? John is Rhaegar's son? Need to brush up before the next book comes out...

    Arya was blinded at the temple due to killing someone.

    Such a reach. Varys does not disappear before Belwas appears, I'm 99.9% sure of this. Also, the physical descriptions don't match, especially Belwas' scars. Interesting theory, but I'm confident in saying there's nothing there.

    Belwas is a servant of Illyrio Mopatis. Selmy went to Mopatis because he knew that the Magister had given room and board etc to the Targaryens and was invested in Dany's future success.

    This is correct. I'm just working through book 3 at the moment. Belwas and Arstan show up concurrent with the Varys storylines. He's very much at play here while Belwas is sailing on the sea with Danerys.

    Yeah, can't wait to actually see that done in the TV show. Will be brutal, the outrage from fans over Ned's death has been pretty huge so this event... yeah.

    I just started book 4 a couple of nights ago. I was amazed at how much stuff went down in Book 3. I'm also amazed at how you don't get any warning before a major character dies.

    Man the red wedding was heart breaking. One of the reasons I like the series so much is for the lack of warning. It makes it that much more shocking. A certain someone being abruptly thrown out the moon definitely was shocking.

    Just finished Book 3:
    What the hell was with Caetlyn coming back from the dead? Is she the new Beric or is R'Hllor just propping up corpses left and right now?

    Beric passed along the "fire" inside him that was responsible for his continued reanimation to Catelyn.

    Did I miss that? Can you tell where to find that in the book? All I remember is Nymeria finding her and dragging her out of the river. I don't remember any mention of her after that.

    I don't believe it's stated explicitly, but the disappearance of Beric (and Thoros?) leads me to believe that is the case. Beric was tired of "living" after being killed so many times, and so he gave his magical fire-life to Catelyn.
