Just for the record, I'm the type of nigga who enjoys watching fictional ppl suffer, so I was practically cheesin' the whole scene. Yeah, I'm a sick fuck.
BTW, ya'll underestimating the impact of breaking that "Guest Right" taboo. Its based in real history but Martin really cranks it up to 11 in his universe:
Guest right is considered one of the most basic social rules of all civilized men. Every major religion in Westeros - the Old Gods of the Forest, the Faith of the Seven, even the Drowned God of the Iron Islands - holds guest right to be one of the most sacred and inviolable social rules. Every lordship or kingdom since the dawn of civilization has had secular laws protecting guest right. For either a guest or a host to break the promised protection of guest right is considered to be an utterly heinous crime, breaking all the laws of gods and men.
Like, if they had captured Robb's army in battle, raped his whole family to death afterwards, and ripped his unborn child out the womb.....most people in Westeros wouldn't think nothin' of it and even Northmen would sorta see it as fair game. But this? This was an affront to all of Westerosi culture. There are some lines you just don't cross. To quote Bunk from Wire ep 7, “A man must have a code”, and this was the big one. Its no spoiler to say that the Freys will be reviled as dishonorable across the land.
A Song of Ice and Fire is a cruel fictional world, but it IS one with Karma. Believe dat.
This is a huge reason why I don't think dani targaryen is the real badass or next on the throne it's too obvious
Dany has the Dragons tho. The Dragons are the key to everything. The only reason the 7 Kingdoms were ever unified was because of Dragons. Westeros IMHO can't even exist as a stable unified nation-state without the threat of Dragons to keep all the other kingdoms in check, as witnessed by 3 major civil wars & 2 minor ones in the past century. (whether or not such a state should even exist in the first place when Tarkin Doctrine is apparently the only thing gluing it together is a question for another day) The presence and power of Magic declined after the Dragons went extinct. It's possible that Dragons themselves are the "Lightbringer" of the Azor Ahai legend and extremely likely that they'll play a pivotal role in defeating The White Walkers. And she's the *only* one that can control these things. Other than Bran, of course.
Dani doesn't quite have dragons like you think she does. If you read my spoilers you'll realize what I'm talking about. This isn't a spoiler it's pretty much known bc of the hints in the 1st book.... Jon Snow is half Targeryon half stark his mom is Ned's sister leana (I think that's her name) and she told Ned to keep a secret before she died. Ask yourself why would a man bring back a child to his home with some whore he messed with instead of letting that whore take care of the child? This means the rightful heir to the throne even before Robert was always meant to be Jon Snow.... This is actually obvious even if you just watch the show.
Spoiler:Just know Jon's dog is white and one of the dragons viserion is white nothing's happened with the dragons quite yet but there are reasons to believe something will happen. The writer in an interview pretty much confirmed big things are going to happen to Jon snow my guess is he's about to transform and take on the white dragon who doesn't
like drogon which is Danis dragon Dani also mentions that
there is only one dragon per rider
