If Stannis sacrifices his daughter Shireen to the Lord of
Light he will have no heirs. I find the completely
reckless behavior compared to head of other
Houses. What good is ruling if you have
no family to sustain your reign?
Interestingly enough other leaders have the same issues:
House Lannister: If Tywin dies one son in King's Guard; the other he refuses to allow Lord over Casterly Rock and Cersei's Queen Regent.
House Targaryen: Daenerys: Has no heirs.
House Greyjoy: Balon has only son left who is a eunuch and one daughter left.
House Arryn: Robin (is the only one left in House Arryn.)
House Tully: Blackfish and Edmure are left.
House Tyrell: Loras and Margaery are left after Mace.
House Martell: Appears to run the healthiest kingdom (as far as heirs go.)
Ironically Houses Frey and Stark also have a lot of heirs and aren’t in power…
If Oberyn survives the Trial by Combat against the Mountain and defeats him will Tywin be next on his list?
If Tyrion and Oberyn are victorious over the Mountain will Tyrion stay in King's Landing?
Could his father cut off access to Tyrion's funding?
Will Baelish be caught killing Lysa?
If he isn't will he force Sansa to marry him or Robin?
I still see Arya completing her fighting training in
Braavos and becoming one of the faceless assassins.
I speculate she will meet Sansa at the Vale, however
something will happen where she continues onto Braavos.
I don't think the Hound will be with us much longer.
He has a price on his head so he's a marked man in
Westeros. I speculate if he survives his wounds he will
probably end up in an encounter with Brienne and she
will defeat him. If there is no encounter with Brienne
and he ends up taking Arya to the Vale, I think that
won't work out either. He will figure out some way to
take his reward (and possibly Arya with him) and he
will be bound for Essos.
What do you think?
