I have 45 days paid leave...I'm taking all the time I need and my boss said she will wait for me...We'll see. December is my last moth...I'm already the size of a cupboard...with two doors. I'm also a bit nervous....it's getting closer..
Maybe they hate the show maybe they don't but what they say is true....evryone is at standstill. If only Martin or the show have decided to end the show with at least half as many cliffhangers and proceed in some direction it would have been much better.
Jon - dead soon to be resurrected
Myrcella - so dead
Theon and Sansa - very much alive,and unharmed
Stannis - alive
in other thread I found this interview and I quoted it :
Weiss noted that when filming a show or movie, the ambiguity of Martin’s final Dance with Dragons chapter is tougher to pull off—a producer typically has to clearly commit to a character’s fate, one way or the other. “In a book, you can present that kind of ambiguity,” Weiss said. “In a show, everybody sees it for what it is. It’s that rule: ‘If don’t see the body then they’re not really dead.’ Like when we cut Ned’s head off, we didn’t want a gory Monty Python geyser of blood, but we needed to see the blade enter his neck and cut out on the frame where the blade was mid-neck—it was longest discussion ever of where to cut a frame; two hours of talking about whether to cut at frame six or frame seven or frame eight. And that’s all by way of saying we needed Ned’s death to be totally unambiguous. I remember reading the book and going back and forth, like, ‘Did I miss something? Was [Ned] swapped out for somebody else?’ There’s a level of ambiguity because you’re not seeing something starkly represented. In the book, you can write around things to preserve a certain level of mystery that you have to commit to on screen.”
So either they are denying what they said themselves for the sake of shock value...which is pretty possible considering or they are saving Stann for one or two more things he needs to do.
