YMMV: A Feast for Crows
  • Genius Bonus: Lady Genna tells Jaime that Lord Tywinn referred to his successor as Hand of the King as "The Chuckler" because the only thing he was good for was chuckling at King Aerys' witticisms. A similar derogatory nickname was given to Wilhelm Keitel, the formal leader of the German Army in World War II, as his main qualification for the job was his abillity to chuckle at the wit of another insane dictator.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Arianne's "Queenmaker" story would have been an interesting arc if it wasn't foiled so abruptly.
    • They Plotted a Perfectly Good Waste: Its real purpose was to demonstrate that the intricate plots of her father Doran are also quite fragile. Also, it demonstrates that Arianne isn't as smart as she thinks she is.
      • As well as giving her some hopes for Character Development, as she quite clearly understands the concequences of her rashness and may learn from it.
  • Trapped by Mountain Lions: Brienne's storyline battling against the Brave Companions provides some awesome moments for her and Pod, but ultimately it doesn't add to the plot that much, at least until Lady Stoneheart and the Brotherhood show up.
