Re: SPOILER *all five books* THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)
Yeah, I definitely see him destroying Gregor but I think Robert Strong has to win the trial....or he's been built up for nothing. I also think Jaime needs to be involved in Cersei's downfall, somehow. I get that twists and surprises need to happen - but I'd be disappointed if Jaime didn't fuck over Cersei in some small way, it's predictable but it's fitting. Anyway, I kind of think Lancel will be the champion for the faith (lol) and get fucking murdered. And Cersei smugly gets away with it, does crazy shit, does more crazy shit and then her world comes crumbling down around her and she dies. Or something. P.s. the walk of shame thing in Dance was a pretty uncomfortable read. I know it's accurate for Martin's world but the whole concept of 'stripping the whore' is pretty...uncomfortable, I guess? Certainly to read about. It's not even something I cheered too much, just because it kind of shows the disgusting people in the Faith too.
I suppose a lot depends on if the priest guy truly believes what he's saying to Brienne - I think publicising Sandor's existence would be pretty dangerous, to anyone. (For him) It's possible he does believe Sandor can be of use the faith because of who he is and has told the high septon, I guess.
