    I think you're all going to be wrong. He's going to show up at the Citadel and I'm going to say "I told you so". ;)

    :D

    Whatever floats your boat.

    Varys at the Citadel? Certainly possible, I guess, but that means we won't see him in ADWD at all. My current guess is that the Spider is going to show up in ADWD, which means either north or where Dany is...

    well lets put it this way. I sincerenly doubt we will be getting a varys PoV, so that means he would either have to turn up with an existing one or a coming one, preferably someone who doesnt recognise him so he can keep a low profile.

    And i think the citidel is unlikely, theres not really anything for him to do there and its a bit high profile for him.

    The spider likes his shadows and he likes his webs and not being seen til it's too late. I think Varys will be involved in something that is a little less obvious than we all think. No clue what that'll be personally but it should be interesting.

    My theory is likely hes end up in a random PoV with a loose description for everyone to speculate over.

    I think something a little more sledgehammer between the eyes that makes us all say no f***ing way. I'm prolly wrong but Varys is a little too in to everything and we are in the last half of the series now.

    All right. We've established that Varys isn't with Tyrion, and he probably isn't with Dany, Bran, Arya, or Asha. The returning PoV has been pretty much established as Theon Greyjoy (please don't come up with the crackpot theories of how Ned's still alive :rolleyes: and GRRM has stated that Cat will never come back as a PoV char. AFFC PoVs can't be "returning" when they've never left.), and it's anybody's guess as to who the new PoV is.

    As Cru stated, Varys isn't likely to become a PoV char, which means that if he shows up in ADWD, he'll be accompanying another character. That leaves Jon, Davos, Theon, or the new PoV. I can't really see him showing up in a Jon PoV, and I suppose a Davos one is possible but unlikely. Theon seems to be as unlikely, so at this point, I'd place my bets on him showing up with the new PoV.

    Maybe the new PoV will be Sandor. Could you image how boring his chapters would be - digging graves, never talking.

    LOL. So true...

    But remember, ADWD can't cover events around KL - only in the north and east, right?

    I didn't mean varys action would be something huge right off the bat but when we hear about it it's going to be an "Oh you sneaky BASTARD!!!" moment

    The more I re-read, the more I think that he's heading for Dany. It seems like everyone else is sending someone to her; The Citadel, the Iron Men, The Dornish . . . why not Varys too?

    It's 'cause me and App agree that he's the gravedigger. If he stops digging graves, he might be a little more interesting. ;)

    Varys => Dany is what I think too.

    Well makes some sense. Varys can't really show his head in Westeros and where else is he gonna go to help Dany? But isn't there the problem that she's got the idea in her head that Varys shouldn't have been pardoned and should have been killed?

    Im just saying if he was going to dany then he had no reason not to go with tyrion.

    Dorne is more likely in my opinion.
