    Just a few notes… Six resurrections equals seven lives, so there’s the numerical significance you were looking for.
    Ashara had dark hair. So Septa Lemore could work maybe, but Tyrion never comments on her eye color which he does several times with Aegon…
    Lastly, Patrick is the greatest.

    The tragedy of Summerhall happened about 40 years ago (when Aemon’s younger brother was well into his 50s and awaiting the birth of his first great-grandchild). You don’t need to be a Child of the Forest to live into your 60s or 70s!

    The other post wasn’t suppposed to be in reply to this. But in reply to this, I believe that Tyrion never mentions either Lemore’s hair nor eye color. But he does mention she is in her 40s, which should be a few years older than Ashara. The age doesn’t match, and the lack of mention of Ashara’s distinctive purple eyes doesn’t match.

    Nice episode lady and gentlemen. Also a big congratulations to Mimi! I had no idea you were a mom.

    The whole thing could have been avoided if Lyanna left Brandon Stark a fucking note.

    “I Lyanna S. am leaving Harrenhall with Rhaegar T.. I do this of my own volition because I love him and he’s totally not a man-whore like Robert B.. I forbade you to go to King’s Landing and confront the Mad King A.T. like a total dumbass.”

    Love Sissy

    Yeah, because they’re all just like 21st century Western people, and it would have made so much difference to a patriarchal feudal guy concerned with family “honor”.

    Ly-Ly coulda been like “yo Brandy, Rhay’s daddy be Cray Cray! Stay the fuck back!”

    When Kyle was making the joke about Rhaegar being with Bloodraven I thought he was going to say that he was in a Bloodless marriage. You know, because he didn’t marry his sister. The places ASOIAF makes your brain go :/
