DamnYankees: StrikitRich: It's well known that Martin had to tell HBO and the showrunners where the show was going and how it would end.  The show could very well complete before the books come out as they will probably finish off of his outline.

I thought he was 100% adamant against that happening, and may have contractual rights to prevent it. I thought the reason he told them the story was in case he died, not in case he wrote too slowly.


HBO is not above murdering a dude.

Shostie: It started as a trilogy and he's working on book six of allegedly seven. I'm reading through the series for the third time and I really don't see any way he can wrap this up in a timely fashion unless he cuts forward 10 years and spends the remaining book as an epilogue.


Ergo the worry. Keep in mind, people aren't just worried the writer will die before its over. They are worried the reader will!

BalugaJoe: He is a fat guy.  Give him more food to write faster.


Fatness does not work that way. Lock him in a cell and deny him ice cream and fried food until he finishes the book and you'll have that sixth book finished in no time.

Lando Lincoln: Hey, wait a minute. Jon Snow wants to go capture or kill the Night's Watch defectors because he doesn't want them to blab to Mance Rayder about how few men are now guarding the Wall. But Mance was a member of the Night's Watch, so...how long ago did Mance leave the Night's Watch anyway? Did the Night's Watch take a serious dip in manpower since Mance left? Mance's raiders have killed other members of the Night's Watch recently, so why are we to assume that none of those members didn't already blab the information to Mance?


Um... Well... Shut up, that's why.

ShadowKamui: Lando Lincoln: DamnYankees: mekkab: /And HBO seems to be telling their own story, now...  and I'm OK with that.

I don't really see how that's true. What in this episode is contradictory to the books in any meaningful way? AFAIK, the last scene isn't so much a different story from the books, as it just shows us a scene which isn't in the books.

Jon Snow going to capture or kill the defectors was not in the books. It did not go down that way.

Coldhands kills them in the book and he's not in the TV show so gotta use somebody else.  Its just filler so they can push Mance's attack to episode 8 and doesn't diverge from the book by any real amount.  Now if Jon and Bran actually meet up then that actually changes the story

Most likely Bran and Co simply run out the back of the keep when Jon attacks and never actually see Jon


Yeah, I don't think that Jon and Bran are going to meet.

Bran: "Jon! It's good to see you! Now if you'll excuse us, we have to travel further north."
Jon: "What?! You'll do nothing of the sort! I'm not going to let my crippled little brother go into the middle of White Walker Central!"
Bran: "But you don't understand. I have to. My dreams told me so. And this other weird kid you never met thinks I should too."
Jon: "Oh...well...in that case...good luck!"

Shostie: AnubisMan: **************. Spoilers ***************

Who is Coldhands in all this mess?  Maybe this Night King is actually a Night Queen, it's hard to tell the gender of a white walker.  Coldhands calls Sam brother and wears Nights Watch blacks and is in fact dead but still walks around and has his own will.  Speculation...

************** End spoilers ***************

There's been speculation for a while that Coldhands is Benjen Stark.



A few theories have discussed why that doesn't make sense. That said, there should be some reason they Benjen was included in the series aside from being the guy who inspires Jon to join the watch.

Lando Lincoln: recoil47: I found myself a bit frustrated that the White Walker story hasn't moved any farther in the books than it did.

It's a race to see who can move slower towards Westeros: White Walkers or Daenerys Targaryen.

"The White Walkers are moving strong! They are out of the box first in the first scene of the series! But wait! They've decided to do nothing for the rest of the season! This gives Daenerys plenty of time to catch up! But no! She decides to go in the opposite direction from Westeros! It's like neither of them want anything to do with Westeros after all!"


Yeah, I'm loving it but that's my biggest frustration with GoT. It's a swords and sorcery setting and there's a metric shiat-ton of swords (yay!) but very little sorcery (boo!). And by sorcery I just mean magic/fantastic stuff in general. There's a looooot of politics and scheming, but I'd really like to see more monsters and crazy magic shiat.

Mostly because they've teased so much about it. They show the White Walkers early in the show, and they've given you a glimpse or two here and there... but really they haven't done shiat. They're kind of a non-issue. The show woudn't be changed any if they were left out. So they're kind of a fantasy cock-tease. Dragons ahve been a little more involved... but still not a lot going on there either.

drewsclues: We went from knowing almost nothing, to knowing a little, if the identity is true. The Others have motivation and are organized. That's the important part. Whether or not that's meaningful or random doesn't really matter.


How can "whether its meaningful" not matter? That's literally the definition of meaningful.

Well, I assume that the people who escaped probably said "We haven't seen Mance".  Hence the "hey, we should hurry up and do this".

If you want to be nitpicky, I would ask why the mutineers are keeping Ghost locked up instead of just killing him- but if it means that we get major carnage when Ghost gets out, I don't even mind that.


How did they even catch Ghost in the first goddamn place?

"You there! Go catch that giant direwolf and stick him in a cage for no real reason!"
"Yeah, you can go fark yourself sideways, buddy."
