That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!
I got your inconvenient truth right here, motherf*&¨%!
Re-reading A clash of kings, I came upon this paragraph whose significance had eluded me the first time around. it's one of the visions Daenerys has in the Undying ones' house.
That really sounds as if it is Rhaegar's son.Viserys, was her first thought the next time she paused, but a second glance told her otherwise. The man had her brother's hair, but he was taller, and his eyes were dark indigo rather than lilac. "Aegon", he said to a woman nursing a newborn babe in a great wooden bed. "What better name for a king?"
."Will you make a song for him?" the woman asked.
"He has a song", the man replied. "He is the prince that was promised, and his is the song of ice and fire."
He looked up when he said it and his eyes met Dany's, and it seemed as if he saw her standing there beyond the door. "There must be one more", he said, though whether he was speaking to her or the woman in the bed she could not say. "The dragon has three heads". He went to the window seat, picked up a harp, and ran his fingers lightly over its silvery strings. Sweet sadness filles the room as man, woman and babe faded like the morning mist, only the music lingering behind to speed her on her way.
He did have a son - Aegon, who had his head bashed against the wall by the Mountain. According to The Citadel, Martin has confirmed that this is Rhaegar, Elia and baby Aegon that Dany is seeing here.
God, I can't wait for this one. I don't see how this will be a problem. I can see it lasting at the most, 10 minutes.Drogon's grand entrance at the fighting pits;
All of which happen, off panel. All we need is the post visual part.Viserion and Rhaegal laying waste to the Meereenese pyramids;
The Battle of Slaver's Bay, which was suppose to be in ADWD but GRRM later took it out, is going to be of some concerns. As I see this being close to the Battle of Blackwater Bay.those might cause some concerns later especially as the dragons grow larger.

I keep wondering who Coldhands is. Apparently it's possible to redeem the zombies created by the Others. I keep wondering if we'll be filled in by that story or if that's one of those things that will be left to mystery.
My theory is that taking the Night's Watch oath before the Old Gods rather than the Seven is somehow important. Martin made a point of mentioning that Benjen had taken his oath at a Heart Tree.
The whole issue of the gods and what kind of power they have in ASoIaF is really interesting to me. Martin keeps the religion stuff intentionally vague for the most part, but we do know that Red Priests can resurrect the dead, the Stranger is the patron of the Faceless Men, who clearly have magical abilities, etc. I look at something like Theon's character arc in ADwD and draw parallels with the more severe "baptisms" of the Drowned God-- the person is actually drowned/dead, then resusitated back to life as one of the Drowned God's faithful as Theon was symbolically dead as Reek then reborn as Theon in Winterfell regaining his courage in the process. It's neat stuff to speculate about.
Anyone got any ideas/hopes as to the eventual status quo? Jon Snow as King in The North wed to Daenerys with Aegon on The Iron Throne wed to Arya, Gendry as Kingsguard, Tyrion as the Hand and Lord of Casterly Rock and Jamie sent to the Wall seems possible to me. Aegon and Dany marrying seems less likely to me at this point. Sansa and Littlefinger is just plain weird to me. I don't see things ending well for Stannis, Roose Bolton or the Greyjoy line either.
