    Well, we did see Margeary and Tommen in bed together and it was certainly stated that they had sex.


    I have a question though: legally (if that applies in King's Landing now), who would have been next in line for the Iron Throne?

    (Yes, Cersei is currently sitting on the Throne but as Rob pointed out, who in King's Landing is going to tell her no?)

    With House Baratheon being almost completely decimated (Robert, Joffrey, Tommen, Stannis, Shireen, Selsye, and Renly) and no one really knowing about Robert's bastards, would control of the Iron Throne have gone to House Lannister with Jamie as the leading candidate?

    (Ah Stannis, if you had more patience, you could have been a legitimate King without all the fighting.)

    So what? Maybe he's Aegon VI. I like your theory and it would explain the name Jon, which does not seem to be short for Jonathan.

    I wonder if the Targarians are considered outsiders in Westeros? They originally came in as outsiders and conquered all the people living there. And now they've been gone quite a while--it seems like a country would object to foreigners coming in and taking over again. And maybe unite against them? Of course if they have dragons......

    I don't think "the people" give a flying crap which noble family is on the iron throne.

    I think Dany's biggest challenge in conquering Westeros will be keeping the Dothraki from burning down every house, killing all the men and raping all the women.

    There might not be much left to rule by the time the war is over.

    I had the same reaction. I think he meant recently, since her imprisonment. The church dude chastised her for not doing her wifely duties of late.

    Yes, much like GIF, we've all been pronouncing it wrong all this time. It's Aejon! How could we not have seen it before?

    ;)

    I guess I'm a little dense but has it been mentioned many times before and just flew right past me or has it been made clear that the pronunciation is with a hard g?

    For GIF? Yes, at least according to the man who actually invented it. (Many of us choose to ignore him). I made this joke, though, because there was a recent thread debating this exact topic. I was trying to make a funny about that. I would hope we would not debate it again here. Please?

    "Quite a while" being 20-ish years. They aren't gone from living memory by a long shot.

    Isn't it the other way around? He pronounces it as a J, and everybody else as a G?

    A lot of articles/people think the last scene in the north, Sansa is upset about Jon being claimed King of the North instead of her becoming queen. The way I watched it, she was smiling until she saw Littlefinger not smiling, and littlefinger's plan was for Sansa to be crowned, marry her, then pivot to claim the iron throne in some fashion. When she stopped smiling I took it as she is now afraid, either for Jon or herself as she knows just how conniving,evil, and murderous Petyr is and how Jon's advancement doesn't mesh with the plan he laid out.

    Like Petyr didn't come to fight Ramsey, just to get a thank you. He isn't being rewarded how he feels he should.

    According to the interview with Sophie Turner posted upthread by photoshopgrl:

    I'd say that since Sophie Turner has read the script and been given direction of how to play that scene, I'm going to take her interpretation of it over anyone else's (unless Dan and David or GRRM weigh in).

    In the commentary for the blu-ray for Season 3, GRRM pronounces it AY-gahn. Many readers that have thought about it think it should be EGG-on, since Aegon was nicknamed "egg". Some people pronounce it more like AY-gun or EGG-un.

    Here is how "Emma Saying" thinks it should be pronounced:

    EDIT:

    I have never heard of someone who thought it should be pronounced AY-jahn or EH-jahn.

    No, I am aware of the great GIF debate (not the Tivo Community one, just the general mispronunciation). Maybe I was being original after all.

    Ever since the gif vs jif stuff started in this thread I swear I accidentally opened up the Silicon Valley thread by accident.

    Stop it....

    Plenty of nicknames aren't directly contained in their root name.

    One fan did some lip-reading, and theorizes that Jon's true name is Jaehaerys.

    No argument from me. I was just trying to summarize what I know about how people pronounce it or think it should be pronounced.

    That's how I interpreted it as well. Sophie's comments seem to indicate that it was, in fact, jealousy over Jon. But when watching that scene, I saw it as fear over his safety.
