This prediction seems like an easy one to make, Gendry embodies the essence of the Smith. And since Martin likes to use well understood themes, I feel fairly certain Gendry will reforge the sword that was broken – will – I don’t know – get spell support or learn the spell from Thoros, or Melisandre, or the dragon fire will be needed, or both of the above. However the details work out, Gendry will reforge Ice from the two pieces Tywin Lannister broke it into. And it will be the true flaming sword that Jon Snow will wield as Azor Ahai reborn. Will he have to temper it in Melisandre? Daenerys? Arya? I’m sure I don’t know.

I think I have read the Song of Ice and Fire enough times to put on my prognosticating hat. Since it isn’t really possible to prognosticate Harry Potter any more, and since I bet an awful lot of the Song of Ice and Fire readers were Harry Potter readers I hope they will forgive me that I repurpose this blog to something I can prognosticate about. hehehe
