Sellsword Company Questions (Show and Book Spoilers!)

Postby DarrenT » Wed Jun 04, 2014 12:15 pm

I just had a couple of thoughts regarding sellsword companies in the show and how the changes that have been made from book to show will potentially have a "butterfly effect" later on.

1. Golden Company

I assume Stannis will be successful in hiring the Golden Company now that he has money. If he does hire the Golden Company, bring them to Westeros and defend the Wall, as the preview for next episode indicates, how does this effect the Aegon plot later? It's hard to believe they would cut out Aegon but is that a possibility? Or will the Golden Company abandon Stannis when Aegon lands in Westeros and that is the one contract they break? Possible but who knows. I also think that if the show goes out of it's way to tell us about the Golden Company's origins (ie. Bittersteel, Blackfyre descendants) then that's a clear indication that Aegon is actually a Blackfyre. If he isn't then I could see that whole aspect being glossed over in the show.

2. Second Sons

Because show Daario is captain of the Second Sons and there is no Brown Ben Plumm (yet?) does this mean that in the show Daario will be the one to betray Dany? Not sure but this thought occurred to me. Lots of potential for this now that he is in Yunkai as well.

What does everyone think? I don't know what will happen for either case but it seems like we might see two pretty big divergences.

Does the preview hint that Stannis hires the Golden Company? I didn't get that from watching it, and it doesn't seem likely to me, because I do think they are definitely keeping the Aegon plot intact. From the footage I've seen, it seems like Stannis is fighting with his own men only. I would also doubt strongly that the Golden Company would follow Stannis just to land at the Wall...

It's worth noting as well that Stannis might not actually have the money to hire sellswords. The writers have clarfiied that Stannis got a provisionary loan from the Iron Bank, and that more money will be lended if he meets with success... so I'm doubtful that they can even afford the Golden Company at this point.

I definitely agree. It would mean more to attack with his own men, as I believe they do in the book. But the show makes it seem like his army is completely wiped out and even an organized cavalry charge might not be enough to defeat 100,000, even if they are disorganized. Thats probably what will happen but the show makes me think the Golden Company may be involved.

I thought the whole point of going to the Iron Bank was to hire the Golden Company. I'll have to rewatch these parts I guess.
