When I read this I was thinking "So like The Others (the movie)?" and then the words "the others" appears so many times in your post. Maybe your friend is right!

I'm cool with all Starks except Catelyn because she:
-hates Jon Snow for no reason (well...no reason that he's to blame for)
-released Jaime Lannister, for completely selfish reasons, a man that Robb practically sacrificed 2000 men to capture (her plan didn't even work to boot, Jaime is back working for his team)

Anyways...all hail King Tommen, he lasted 2.5 books to Joffrey's 1.75 books to Robert's 0.75

Starks being allies of the Others is an interesting theory. But most of the Starks are dead lolol. Bran obviously isn't and he'd be pretty important if he could say...warg the dragons and use them against the Others' enemies. I've read quite often of Bran being the "big bad". I don't buy it. Not yet.

Cat is a Tully. She's not a real Stark. I like Cat though.

Yeah I'm not sure I buy the Starks being allies for the Others. We know how Jon Snow feels about the Others. I'm not saying that he doesn't somehow end up helping them or whatever but it's clearly not been this vast conspiracy of the Starks to be evil. That totally no-sells everything they have done so far in the books.

Zombie Cat is fun.

I could somehow see Bran being tricked into leading/warging The Others from his little cave to attack Kings Landing. Evil through ignorance and revenge is something that could easily be done to a little kid that doesn't entirely know better yet.

I just really hope this doesn't turn into a supernatural tale of R'hllor vs The Great Other at the end. That would be a waste of an entire series for something purely supernatural.

Littlefinger though, I'm betting GRRM lets him get his plans almost completely realized, and then killed off.


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

Spoiler: The "Others" are Dutch.

And Game of Thrones actually takes place in Washington D.C.

It's not even his brother anymore though. I think its legitimately necro'ed back, ie Qyburn didn't use R'hllor's way, ie he's not a fire wight/other, i.e. Gregor retains none of his former self. He's just Robert Strong, huge zombie knight.

But yeah, Sandor will destroy it. No question.
