So... do you still think Robb is most capable of taking King's Landing? After this latest episode, its funny looking back at your comments and see how all your admiration for the Starks have came to this conclusion.
Jeez, that was my rather old words one helluva year ago and you still kept that in mind? This series is no longer my most interest after some tedious eps at the start of season 3, I’d rather watch science-fiction Continuum or political House of Cards than this. Yet, if you want to talk about it, I’ll treat you with my kindness.
That was my post on June 1 last year before I watched the final ep of season 2. Maybe you should refer to my following post in June 4 to update your memory about my viewpoint better:
At last, the finale has just closed up season 2 and it brought me both pleasant and disappointed feelings. Robb’s wedding with Talisa was really let-down as I expect him to behave much more differently than an egotist, and all above he would follow his mother’s advice to keep his words with House Tully.
Yah, I did think Rob deserved to the Iron Throne until he broke his mother’s promise with House Tully. He was no longer a man of honor in my eyes and that was why I said:
I wish for a punishment for him in the end when Talisa came into a spy, lol!
Honor right? Yeah... looks like honor couldn't save Robb from what's coming. Like father like son eh? Guess its time for you to reevaluate your standing in this world considering that your beloved Starks are effectively out of this war.
Why do I have to change my view when every happenings just come out like my prediction? Lol!
Let me ask you a question, when Robb was determined to betray House Stark’s treaty (arranged marriage) with House Tully, would he still be considered an honorable man? Hell no, dude! Everyone sees it and you realize how his mother despised his love with Talisa as an ignominy for the family at the beginning.
So, what did you see that? He reaped what he sowed. He betrayed the oath, he defied his honor. Suffice to say, he had to pay the price for it. I’m uncertain about you but I personally perceive a message thru the way George R. R. Martin built and portrayed his characters, “Honor is the key.” When Ned Stark admitted his sin to attempt to overthrow Joffrey and when Robb Stark renounced the marriage that he agreed previously to get backed from House Tully, they simply became men WITHOUT HONOR. So, how can you say that honor can’t save them? Laughable! It’s them who defied their honor first, what more can they get? If they hadn’t done it, they might not suffer such bad consequences.
Another example to prove my stance also, look at Jaime. He’s alleged a man without honor despite what he did to save thousands of lives but was regarded as the most despised action of the Kingsguard Commander. He was named after any scornful titles like oathbreaker, kingslayer… instead a savior just because he killed the person that he made an oath to protect him till death. Regardless of how evil that mad King was, Jaime assassinated the King, that turned him into a man without honor. And you already know how horrible a life of a dishonorable man is, huh? Why keep dissuading me honor is not that important to a warrior? Strange!
I can't wait to see her cross the Narrow Seas and claim what is rightfully hers, that would be glourious to see.
Woops, I don’t mean to thrust your high hope for her, but there’s something I want to say. Although the way she conquered the cities of Astapor and Yunkai showed her smartness and cunningness as well, it comes to my sense that Dany might possibly turn out a second Mad Queen in the history, lol! Look, she is descendant of the Mad King, she inherited his blood. Who knows she may have that trait of his in the end? Bloodlust, madly craving to see men burnt in the flame of his fire dragons. Remember that George R. R. Martin hasn’t finished his novel A Song Of Fire And Ice yet. Who can be sure that he’s not gonna make some change to his characters then ? Let’s wait for it!
