You spent way to long on a really terrible troll.

And Lommy's hands weren't but green. 'Lommy "no physically distinguishing traits in regards to the color of his" hands' is how he should have appeared in the credits.

I got the same info from that scene as well. It seems strangely heavy-handed for Martin though. I expected something a bit more subtle.

Let's pretend that we haven't had 10 years to pick apart every word in the books though. I only registered that something weird might be going on with Jon's parents years after I first read the series. And that's only because I've read it more than once.

Assuming you don't ever hear of or read the books until after A Dream of Spring (yeah, yeah, it's never coming out. I know.) is released, that plotline would be huge. 7 books in, and the guy whos supposed to be the guy from the first books son is actually not his son but his nephew, instead being the secret bastard son of the once prince and raised in secret his entire life by his uncle pretending to be his dad.

But instead, we have had a decade to figure that out on our own. So no matter how amazing the eventual reveal is, it will seem blatantly obvious and 20 years too late to most of us.

The amount of bitching might make them try and avoid it though.

But that's not how it happened in the books!

I just get depressed whenever I think about WoW. The only chapters in it currently are transplants from DwD, which was a stupidly boring book. So I can only assume the chapters he took out were the worst of the worst, in a vain hope of making DwD just a bit less boring.

And from his blog, it's clear that he's doing gently caress-all writing right now. I'm sure his thought process is "Finally got that book out, I deserve a break". That break is going to last 5 years.

Do they make any attempt to hide the fact it's Barristan?

Doesn't he beat the poo poo into three dudes in the book? Killing a scorpion, WTF?

I was there too, and no... He's introduced pretty much right away. And there was no Belwas.

Also a quote from his speech:

"There's a horny 17-year old in me" -GRRM
