You believe that Arya will return to Westeros with ser Justin and his sellswords. But is is possible that Massey won't return to Stannis at all? I feel like the way he is written suggests this. He is not very brave or loyal, but very opportunistic. I think it's more likely that he'll switch sides to Aegon and try to marry FArya, just like he tried with Val and Asha.

I disagree. If Massey wasn’t loyal to Stannis, he’d have abandoned him during or after the Blackwater, as so many did. 

  • what she says:i'm fine
  • what she means:game of thrones has become a horrible, non-canonical, misogynistic fan fiction of ASOIAF, D&D are completely obliterating the plotlines of the characters we love and leaving them with husks of their former selves doing totally OOC things that will probably have disastrous effects on the coming seasons, and offering us disgusting rapes and sexist tropes and child burnings for shock value to make up for cut story arcs that were actually important and good and meaningful, i want Shireen safe at the Wall and Arianne and Jeyne Poole and Barristan Selmy alive and Griff and Young Griff and SANSA IN THE VALE. GODS WHY IS SANSA NOT IN THE VALE EATING LEMON CAKES. I THOUGHT THE WORST THAT WOULD HAPPEN TO HER THIS SEASON WAS SOME UNWANTED KISSING FROM BAELISH BUT I WAS SO WRONG. SO WRONG.

You stated that you believe that Jon will "[escort] Selyse/Shireen/Mel to Stannis at Winterfell" (June 7th, 2016) but how will Stannis react to Jon telling him that Arya wasn't Arya, or will Stannis already know, or did he always know, and sent Jeyne to Jon to avoid the Northern Lords/Clans finding out?

Well, I think Jon will still be dead when Justin Massey arrives at Castle Black with Jeyne Poole in tow. IMO this will lead Massey to bring Jeyne along with him to Braavos, where they’ll run into Arya, because what more perfect, elegant reason could there be for the latter dropping all names but her own than to see someone else posing as Arya Stark? 

As such, I don’t think Jon and Stannis will find out that Ramsay’s bride wasn’t Arya after all until Massey returns. (I don’t see any evidence that Stannis realizes Jeyne isn’t Arya.) 


“Robert was never the same after he put on that crown. Some men are like swords, made for fighting. Hang them up and they go to rust.”

“And his brothers?” Jon asked.

The armorer considered that a moment. “Robert was the true steel. Stannis is pure iron, black and hard and strong, yes, but brittle, the way iron gets. He’ll break before he bends. And Renly, that one, he’s copper, bright and shiny, pretty to look at but not worth all that much at the end of the day.” ― Jon I, A Clash of Kings.
