Patchface's Song

Patchface, the Dragonstone's fool, shows an alarming ability in predicting events, using apparently meaningless songs. For example:

"The shadows come to dance, my lord, dance my lord, dance my lord," he sang, hopping from one foot to the other and back again. "The shadows come to stay, my lord, stay my lord, stay my lord.".

This passage becomes more interesting if compared with the fool's hat Patchface wears: an helmet with antlers, similar to the one Renly wears in battles. And it's a shadow that killed Renly. Moreover, Patchface has some little bells on his helmet's antlers. Khal Drogo has always some little bells weaved in his hair, and his death comes from the dancing shadows that Mirri Maz Duur summoned in her tent.



Melisandre's Prophecies

In this book, Melisandre gives us several prophecies, some from Asshai, others from what she has seen in the flames.

"In ancient books of Asshai it is written that there will come a day after a long summer when the stars bleed and the cold breath of darkness falls heavy on the world. In this dread hour a warrior shall draw from the fire a burning sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and the darkness shall flee before him."

Most of the events that were shown in this prophecy were already passed by: there has been a long summer yet, and the red comet in the skies is a “bleeding star”. It is possible that Dany has fulfilled this prophecy when, in a chapter of “A Games of Thrones”, she returns to life from the flames with her three dragons. (For further details about this assumption see below the other Melisandre's prophecy).


“Ser Cortnay will be dead within a day. Melisandre has seen it in the flames of the future...Melisandre saw another day in her flames as well. A morrow when Renly rode out of the south in his green armor to smash my host beneath the walls of King’s Landing. Had I met my brother there, I would have died instead of him.”


Ser Cortnay's death has already happened, just like predicted by Melisandre. The following part is interesting: Stannis presumes that the future Melisandre has seen could be an alternative one, that never will become true. By the way, the man in the green armour who leads the army from the South to defeat Stannis's army near King's Landing is Garlan Tyrell, who wears Renly's armour. It was not the real Renly, but it seems like this vision has come true.



Jojen's greendreams

"I dreamed of a winged wolf bound to earth with grey stone chains," he said. "It was a green dream, so I knew it was true. A crow was trying to peck through the chains, but the stone was too hard and his beak could only chip at them."
"Did the crow have three eyes?"
Jojen nodded.

The winged wolf is Bran, and the Three-eyed crow is the one who always appears in Bran's dreams. The chains could represent Bran's refusal and difficulty in opening his third eye, that could allow him to gain the skills of a warg.


She paid that no heed. "You were sitting at supper, but instead of the servant Maester Luwin brought you your food. He served you the king's cut off the roast, the meat rare and bloody, but with a savory smell that made everyone's mouth water. The meat he served the Freys was old and grey and dead. Yet they liked their supper better than you liked yours."

The “meat” is the news about the Oxcross Battle, that Maester Luwyn reports to Bran and the two Walders.
Bran hears the news about Robb's victory, while the Freys find out that Stevron Frey is dead. But the two Walders are happier about the news than Bran is, in spite of the matter's difference.



"It is the sea that comes."
"The sea?"
"I dreamed that the sea was lapping all around Winterfell. I saw the black waves crashing against the gates and towers, and then the salt water came flowing over the walls and filled the castle. Drowned men were floating in the yard. When I first dreamed the dream, back at Greywater, I didn't know their faces, but now I do. That Alebelly is one, the guard who called our names at the feast. Your septon's another. Your smith as well."

The black water symbolizes Theon and other Greyjoy men, who will conquer Winterfell later in the book. Alebelly will be killed during the assault, Mikken will be killed by Stygg shortly after. Septon Chayle will be drowned by Theon as an offering to the Drowned God.



"I dreamed of the man who came today, the one they call Reek. You and your brother lay dead at his feet, and he was skinning off your faces with a long red blade."

This vision, in a certain way, will become true too, seeing that Reek and Theon will kill two children approximately the same age old than Bran and Rickon; so that, once their faces have been skinned, it will not be possible to distinguish any difference and they could be mistaken for the two princes by Winterfell's people.
