Favorite plot twist
Despite the shock of Ned’s death in AGoT, I still made the mistake when reading ACoK of thinking that the plot would follow a foreseeable trajectory. It’s called A Clash of Kings, so we’re building up the brother against brother thing and that will be the big climax of the whole book probably and- oh shit, no it’s not. I never expected Renly to die that quickly. It shifted the alliances around, gave some legitimacy to Melisandre’s powers, and proved once again you never can tell with George R.R. Martin.
