I was wondering where everyone stands on Young Griff/Aegon Targaryen, do you think he really is Rhaegar's son? Or just some random kid with the right hair colour that Varys and Illyrio cooked up?
I'm torn about this. On one hand, I think he might be legit - part of the disillusionment of the idea that Dani would obviously rise up and claim the throne. A kid with a better claim than her shows up and immediately goes to Westeros, while Dani is too busy fucking a mercenary and worrying about Mereen.
On the other hand, other than the Varys/Illyrio conversation near the dragon bones in the first book, he completely came out of nowhere. Seems like a pivotal figure would have more build up. But Martin is known for major plot developments happening off-page, so who knows.
