Jon wouldn't be a legitimate, true-born Targaryen heir.  Bran is the legitimate heir to Winterfell.

If Rhaegar and Lyanna got married prior to his birth he would be.  There's precedent for Targaryens taking multiple wives, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Wouldn't that wedding have to have been public for it to count?

Here's an explanation on why the timelines don't seem to make sense:

It's not intended to match up real time because doing so would hurt the narrative.

I can't see how Cersi's position could be any weaker.  The North is united behind Jon Snow.  Houses Martell and Tyrell have joined the Dothraki backing Daenerys.  What allies do the Lannisters have left?  The Freys, who just lost their lord and top heirs?  Cersi basically stands alone.  It'll be a short reign.

How the **** did Varys get from Dorne to the middle of the ocean on a ship so quickly?  You'd think he would just wait until Dany came ashore to meet up with her.

What I hear is that shot was when the fleet was setting sail after congregating in Dorne and picking up the Martell fleet.

SPOILERS!



Damn... Cersi is SAVAGE.  Holy epic victory.  I think I respect her now.

It's almost a shame Tommen had to be a wuss and ruin it for her.

Great episode, but unnecessarily costly to the Stark army.  Sansa said "we could wait until we have a larger army" when she should have appended "because Littlefinger is marching here with all the soldiers of the Eyrie."  She had to know they were coming in response to her raven.  Hell, she knew where to meet with them.  Did she let all of Jon's Wildlings get slaughtered out of spite because she wasn't included in the war council?

I understand the writers were going for the drama of the Eyrie horses swooping in and saving everyone, but I wish it could have been a bit more logical.  Just having Sansa not riding in with Littlefinger, having her not know whether he'd respond to her pleas, would have been better.

But that's a bit of a nitpick.  Overall, it was awesome.  Really amazing, brutal battle.  Those piles of bodies were unreal.

I'd also like for it to be explained how Daenerys figured out how to control her dragons.

I was expecting a lot more from an Ian McShane GoT cameo, but I guess we will take what we can get. I assume they were still hanging out around the Vale? Were the guys that slaughtered them Dondarrion's (sic) men or just some other band of Brothers? 

It was indeed the Brotherhood Without Banners (according the the wiki).  Kind of a dick move slaughtering a group of innocent people...

Bear Island looked pretty cool, but geez...62 men? The army building is not going so well. Maybe a quick raven to Littlefinger will help?

I'm 100% certain that's the letter Sansa was writing.

I don't know - did she learn how to murder better?  That might serve some purpose.  The best I can tell, she learned how to get beaten by a stick.

Deadpool made Fox 5 X-Men's worth of box office profits.  Those rights aren't going anywhere.

Yeah, I see what you're saying.  But there's really a bit more to it for Marvel.  They had Franklin dreaming up everyone's history.  So ideally it would be identical to what was before Secret Wars (minus the transplants), but it doesn't necessarily HAVE to be identical.

For example, I expect the new Punisher series will feature a Frank Castle who is a veteran Marine of non-specific Middle Eastern conflicts, not Vietnam.  That way he's not in his seventies (though the FrankenPunisher thing already took care of that... painfully badly).

So I guess I'm saying we don't know the past is canon unless it's revealed anew as canon.

As far as Marvel's situation, they haven't ever really done a "reboot".

That's completely inaccurate.  At the beginning of Secret Wars last year, the Marvel Multiverse was destroyed.  Dr. Doom cobbled together a kingdom, saving (or recreating) everyone he could.  A handful of heroes who survived the destruction in lifeboats orchestrated a civil war against Doom and won.  In the end, the new unified universe was created by Franklin Richards.  It combined elements of the traditional Marvel universe, Ultimate universe, and the cinematic universe.

It was a full-scale reboot.

I literally cannot understand a single word out of the Irish guy's mouth either. I'm gonna have to watch the re-airing with subtitles...

You couldn't understand him in the comic books either.  Ennis loves his dense, indecipherable Irish slang.  If they continue to stay true to that aspect of the comic, think of him like Brad Pitts' character in Snatch.
