All you need is to reveal that he's Elia's son and pretty much everyone attentive has a pretty good idea about how this guy must feel, what motivates him, how intricate his connection is to current players, etc.

    Are you a book reader? Before I proceed with my thoughts I just wanted to check. I don't know what to consider a spoiler or not on this board.


I'm not a book reader, I just read wikis when I need info on book stuff. I have no problem with spoilers, if that's your concern, so go ahead and say whatever you want without apprehension.

Ok. I wasn't sure if you meant Aegon or Strickland. Because Strickland hasn't been mentioned in the show at all. Neither has Aegon by name (Elia and her "children" were).

Spoilers from books:


In the books, Aegon sails back to Westeros. It is claimed that he is Elia and Rhaegar's child, so that wouldn't make him a bastard. I wasn't sure why you were calling him the bastard Aegon (unless you are think he isn't who he says).

Back to the TV show, if you ask most regular viewers of the show who Elia was, most people wouldn't know right off the bat. I doubt they are going to try and confuse people this late.

And you're right, as far as the books go, the Golden Company and Aegon's story is presumably significant. But there are 2 more books left. The books still aren't close to the climax. The show is. Introducing Aegon to the show now, and having him make a real effort for the thrones, would be equivalent to George RR Martin introducing him halfway through Book 7, having him arrive our of nowhere and take the throne.

The show is surprising. But every surprise has had major implications for future storylines. There are no more future storylines. This is it. This would be shock for pure shock value.
