I'm just curious what non-book readers think about that because as a reader I feel like they're fukking up establishing the side characters. Even Laenor barely had any scenes before marrying Rhae.
they've done a shyt job here so far. GOT was GOAT because of all the parallel stories and mid-tier characters. i don't care for any of the main characters and know jack shyt about side characters - like i have no clue who is going to matter outside of Daemon Rhaenerya and Allicent and maybe Cole

I get your point, but a lot of shyt repeats itself because these same issues are always there when it comes to these blood based monarchies.

A lot of it is based on real history. There have been multiple lords/royals who ran off with commoners for the sake of love, both in real life and in the ASOIAF lore. Lots of women dying in childbirth, lots of people being secretly murdered so their heir could take their land and titles. Gay lords/royals who lived secret double lives with sham marriages. b*stards being fathered and legitimized, war over who should be heir, tyrant lords/kings, weak ineffectual lords/kings, etc. This is real shyt that echoes itself over and over again all throughout ASOIAF lore and real history. It's all just a backdrop to tell the major stories around.
shyt I was just reading stories about modern wealthy families and you could guess the outcomes after awhile.

Inheritance is challenged.

Defamation everywhere

Lawyers are called.

Hitmen are hired.

Random incest.

Repeat.
Cacs been doing this shyt, this is their true legacy :dead:

You're right in the sense that he was writing ASOIAF, and the history and lore of Westeros was just backstory created to flesh it out.
In the OG series there was a lot of "this is happening now, just like it happened back then with the dragon queen/northern lord/Dornish prince/etc. So we are just seeing one of those "just like that one time" historical backstories being played out. He only fully fleshed out the full lore when the books became popular.
Happens a lot, an author will go back and clean up some stuff because now people are actually paying attention :pachaha:

Thank you. Great explanation

I thought it was a random guard that picked her up until i came in this thread, it happened so fast.

Then after reading this thread multiple posters said thats her future side piece. One even said the baby might be his.

Just a hunch they have, right :troll: we not real game of throne fans :troll: we should watch Power or Snowfall cause we cant decipher in a 2 second scene that a guard picks up Rhae becomes her future love :troll: we are too stupid to see that from the moment he picked her up and disappeared from the scene that she had googly eyes for him :troll:


But hey apparently these arent spoilers and maybe they’re referring to some dialogue between the hound and sansa in season 4 episode 7 at the 23:52 mark of the episode :troll:




Yep. If that turns out to be true, I'm reporting that poster. :ufdup:

Wasn't blackmail, he figured they were like kindred spirits in being royal side pieces.

Cole was NOT happy with being a sidepiece :wow:
Word. He cared for Brehlarion Jr.. He really didn't meant no slight. He was on some we 4 against the world, we gotta protect eachother.

Yeah being a male thot maybe he thought about some orgies and sheet between the 4 but that wasn't clear, it's just speculation.

Ser Simpthemost was in his feeling that's why he reacted emo-beech.

To me, that was what made the scene so damn sad.

Lack of communication along with not "reading the damn room" (Why the hell would you assume he was on the same page, he didn't smile at her not once. More like a sad stare)
He meant no ill will and now the wedding day will be remembered for all the wrong reasons:wow:

Killer Simp mode def took me off guard though, I was screaming at my TV because Rhae and Daemon were going to do something stupid in public AGAIN :why:

fukk this family man :why:

Nah nah don't blame in on the lack of communication mayne. The 🧚‍♂️ breh saw his clothes and chains and assumed that he was talking to a cold G. How was he supposed to know he is talking a guy that 1 day ago was a virgin? Especially after bagging the hottest most wanted chick in South Side?
Everything is on Simpthemost being a emotional hoe.
