Casual Thoughts: Val’s Rumor

Another day, another video. This time, it’s about Val. I believe there is a lot to Val that goes unseen. This video explores more ideas from my larger essays that have yet to be published.

In particular, this video explores how various details seem to betray Val’s larger significance.

As a final note, I also want to point out that Val is also a striking visual and narrative parallel to the historical figure Daena the Defiant. They are alike in both appearance and demeanor; and additionally are/were coy captives of their respectful ‘husbands’. I don’t address the topic in this video, but elsewhere I’ve written about Val *possibly* considering herself Jon’s ‘wife’; and were that true (yet not consummated), it is another parallel to Daena and Baelor the Blessed.
