Who will be Saphira’s mate?
Well we all know Glaedr is out of the picture for that. He already refused her once so Saphira probably wont try again.
The only real way Saphira would mate with either of them is if Galbatorix captured her and forced her to mate with one of them. Considering nothing bad has happened to Saphira yet, this unlikely. She may mate with Thorn only if he and Murtagh turn good. Well there both unlikely, but I’m rooting for Thorn.
The green dragon will probably be as likely as Thorn or Shruikan, because the green dragon is currently under the control of Galbatorix. Likeliness is that the Varden will capture the green dragons egg, he will hatch for someone(like Roran or Elva. I’ll talk about this more later.) Saphira will fall in love with him, and they mate. Yeah also Saphira’s gonna have to wait for the green dragon to mature. If he hatches with Galbatorix he will be forced to grow rapidly like Thorn, if with the Varden he will have to mature like Saphira. Even if he grows with Galbatorix, his rider will probably end up being with Galbatorix too, how else would he hatch then. Anyway likelyness is Saphira will mate with the green dragon. Hope not, I vote Thorn.

Many questions rise up when one comes to Brisinger; what happens to Murtagh, who’s actually Eragon’s real father, who will become Saphira’s mate, who will ride the green dragon. Stuff like that. Well i went to http://www.shurtugal.com and they had some compelling theories on what might happen next. I will start with what will happen to Murtagh
What will happen to Murtagh?
In Brisinger, Eragon tells Murtagh that changing the way he and Thorn act and their personalities, they will change their true names, thus Galbatorix would lose power over them. Murtagh argues that Galbatorix probably has something to alert himself about Murtagh’s and Thorn’s true name changing. Anyway Eragon tries to convince Murtagh that he can save him, and it shows hits that Murtagh does want to be saved, but his fear for Galbatorix is greater. This shows us Murtagh has some good in him, that he is only doing this because Galbatorix is forcing him to. I believe Murtagh and Thorn will attempt to change to good, or die trying. His conversion, or the hatching of the green dragon, I believe, will change the tides in the war to the Varden.
Who’s actually Eragon’s Father?
Listen to this because Shurtagal.com has a great explanation. Murtagh said that Morzan was his father in the ancient language, and since you can’t lie in the ancient language, Morzan must be his father!” We all Know Selene was Murtagh and Eragon’s mother right, well they both assumed Morzorn was also both their father. However, this is not at all true, and in reality Morzan is not Eragon’s father. It is Brom.
It makes way more sense. It also says you can tell an untruth in the Ancient Language if you believe it is truth. Murtagh believed he was full blooded brothers with Eragon, they share a mother, and there was no proof to say otherwise, so he assumed he was Morzorn’s son and spoke it in the ancient language.
“Son and Father alike, both blind as bats”
It’s about betrayal. Brom was blind to Morzorn’s betrayal and Eragon to Murtagh’s. Also in Eldest, Oromis tells Eragon about Morzorn. He tells him how Morzorn was his greatest failure and how Brom idolized him. Brom followed Morzorn everywhere, never contradicted him, and never believed that he could best Morzan in any venture. Morzorn took advantage of Brom’s devotion a hundred different times, and Morzorn became proud and cruel. But, before Oromis could seperate Brom and Morzorn, Morzorn helped Galbatorix steal a dragon hatchling, (Shruikan) to replace Galbitorix’s dead dragon, killing it’s original rider. Then Morzon and Galbatorix fled together.
Direct quote from Eldest, pg 280
“You cannot begin to fathom the effect Morzan’s betrayal had on Brom until you understand the depth of Brom’s affection for him. And when Galbatorix at last revealed himself and the Forsworn killed Brom’s dragon, Brom focused all of his anger and pain on the one who he felt was responsible for the destruction of his world: Morzan.”
Well there it is, Brom was majorly pissed off at Morzon, so of course he would do anything possible to get back at him. Well Selene had fled from Morzorn after she had Murtagh, well she went to Carvahal. Brom was in Carvahal, or went to Carvahal, anyway Selene ended up having another baby, Eragon. The actual father was never disclosed, only assumed. Why wouldn’t Brom comfort the woman abused by Morzorn? Why wouldn’t he fall in love with her in the process? Why wouldn’t they end up having a baby? Of course it would be kept secret, to avoid issue. Brom ends up killing Morzorn, and takes his sword. The end of Morzorn. Anyway it fits. After Selene died, why would Brom stay in Carvahal. He clames he was staying there waiting for the new Dragon rider. It was also he wanted to keep an eye on his son. Also of course the next dragon rider will probably end up being his own son, of course. He was so quick to pick up on Eragon’s dragon riding because he was looking for it all along.
Anyway another little tidbit that i noticed is Morzorns dragon was red that’s why Zarroc is red. Ok Murtagh’s dragon Thorn is red. Brom’s dragon the original Saphira was blue, Eragon’s dragon Saphira is blue. Coincidence i think not.
anyway i have go so I’ll talk about this later.
