  1. That's a good point, I wonder why she hasn't. After all, if he is truly a threat / danger, then you would have thought, given how powerful she appears to be around Stannis and the Queen, that she could engineer steps to remove him. Who would mind a fool being replaced by another? So I think either we overestimate how influential she is (surprising) or she "keeps friends close and enemies closer" and so she keeps Patchface around to get to know him better.
  2. me too and I agree that either he is being warged, or a God/demon from below the sea is using him
  3. Actually I think the books will all come before the TV show: March 2013: start showing ASOS1 March 2014: start showing ASOS2 March 2015: start showing AFFC March 2016: start showing ADWD1 March 2017: start showing ADWD2 March 2018: start showing TWOW1 March 2019: start showing TWOW2 March 2020: start showing ADOS(1?) So as long as there are 2 seasons each of ASOS (we know that) but also of ADWD and TWOW, then assuming a release date of first half of 2015 for TWOW, then he can delay the release of ADOS to early 2020. Still gives him 4.5 years to write it. Of course, this assumes that it is his last book! It might not be.... I just can't imagine the TV series overtaking the books. This would mean that any suspense finale, any surprise ending (who ends up on the Iron Throne? Who marries who? etc.) are revealed before he publishes it!? Unthinkable...
  4. From mislike to like: Jaime, Samwell, the Martells, Tommen (turns out to be an OK boy, so far anyway) From like to mislike: Tywin (thought he'd be more noble than he turned out to be), Walder Frey (well, never quite liked him, but at first I thought he'd be a harmless old fool, whereas he turns out to be a c**t of the first order!), Jorah (disappoints on all level I think), Shae (betrays Tyrion although I agree she may not have had much choice). Always liked Sansa, Arya, Bran, Robb, Stannis, Melisandre, Dany, Beric, the Hound, Kevan, Tyrion, Bronn, Jon so no change by end of aSoS, and never liked Theon, Balon, Asha, Cersei, Joffrey, Gregor, Janos Slynt, ser Alliser, Ramsay, and that hasn't changed either by the end of the book. Roose Bolton is unclassifiable as he is quite evil but in an interesting way and I love reading about him.
  5. Hi peeps, I'm Lemmy from NZ and I love the Hound. Currently nearly finished aSoS. Love the forum! Hard to be disciplined enough to avoid the spoilers though :dunno:
