    Hey there, can someone clear up some confusion for me regarding the third Cersei chapter in AFFC?

    To what /who is Cersei referring to when she says, in response to Jaime, "'Safe.' The word tasted bitter on her tongue. Jaime did not understand. No one understood. Only Melara had been in the tent to hear the old hag's croaking threats, and Melara was long dead."

    Who is Melara, and who is the "old hag?" Is this a reference to an earlier book in the series? If anyone can provide me with the answer and a book and chapter reference, I would be forever in your debt--it's driving me nuts!

    Thanks!!:)

    Hey, as far as I remember, the story of the old hag and melara will b told later in the books. Has something to do with a fortune telling old woman and things like that. Read on and you'll know what it is all about :)

    Be patient and don't read these forums! We gave up posting spoiler alerts long ago.
