  1. Yes, this is what I mean. ASOIAF will end up being a three-arc story, AGOT, ACOK and ASOS being the first, AFFC and ADWD being the second, and Winds and Dream of Spring the third and last. They were 90% faithful to arc 1 and the War of the Five Kings, but they changed arc 2 quite a lot. But, in the end, it will be a pretty similar arc 3 in terms of the broader plot points.
  2. Oh, that's not what I really meant. I'm quite happy with the Show as it is right now. No adaptation is perfect. LOTR is an extraordinary trilogy of books adapted into a extraordinary trilogy of movies, and they changed the plot and the characters quite a lot. Same happens with GOT to me. D&D have claimed countless times that the ending will be pretty similar so I don't really have doubts about it. They've taken shortcuts, some of them were quite badly done, some of them were better, but we are know in a position I expect will be the same in the books, roughly at the end of Winds: -Dany is sailing to Westeros with the Iron Fleet. She dumps Daario. Barristan is dead, Tyrion is at her side. Battle of Meeren won with the dragons. -Jon has left the Night's Watch and has retaken Winterfell with an army of wildlings and minor Northern Houses. What I don't know is if he'll fight against Ramsay (which I doubt) or Stannis. He'll be King in the North (through Robb's will, omitted on the Show). Davos will end up at Winterfell somehow, with or without Rickon. -Sansa and LF have control over the Knights of the Vale. They march North. -Bran has left the cave after an attack from the Others, Jojen is dead, Hodor probably as well. Bloodraven is gone, He probably knows about the origins of the Others. -Dorne is allied with the Targaryens (fAegon on the books; I don't think he'll last much longer though, and Dany on the Show). -Cersei is free from her trial, and has killed the HS, and probably some Tyrells. I don't know if shel'll blow up the Sept of Baelor, but I'm sure she will use the wildfire one time. -Arya has ended her training and left the Faceless Men. She's back in Westeros. All these plot points are nearly the same on the Show. Sure, I could be wrong, and Winds may not be like I believe it'll be at all, but I think it's safe to assume some of those at least. Now, everyone is free to like or hate the execution of the Show's arc 2, the shortcuts and decisions D&D have made, but when I talk about faithfulness, what I mean is this: the plot, in terms of what happens, when and by whom, are almost the same.
  3. Why would you think that? Lip-reading of Lyanna suggests the name is either Aegon or Aemon. It starts with an Ae-, that's for sure. They changed Asha to Yara because they didn't want the audience to get confussed between her and Osha. Now there's no possible confussion like that one.
  4. No, it's not. You read the books, then you watch the Show. You draw up your own conclusions, I, for example, have always claimed that, once both books and show are finished, people will realize the Show was actually quite faithful to the source material. Far more than what people think it is now. D&D simply cut out half of George's act 2 because it didn't help their narrative. Sure, they could have done it better, but it's what we got. So, fAegon, Dorne, Boltons vs Stannis, Sansa and LF getting the Vale army, Victarion, the Battle of Meeren, Jon post-stabbing, etc will put the book characters at pretty much the same position they are on the Show right now (and thus, Act 3 should be similar in both mediums): Sansa, LF and the Vale army in Winterfell, Jon as KitN, Dorne and fAegon out, Stannis, Roose, Ramsay, Barristan etc are dead, Dany, Tyrion and the Iron Fleet are allied and going to Westeros, and go on.
  5. I've always thought Jon's real name is Aemon.
  6. Show-wise, yes, he knows about it. I'm not really sure about Book LF though.
  7. Come one now, I think it was reasonable to have doubts about the leaks BEFORE the trailer... Now that it's out it all just fits. You can actually see the Wight Hunt, the ambush of the Lannister army, the burning of Yara's fleet, etc. If you don't like the leaks, I'm sorry, you are not going to like Season 7. There's nothing more to it.
  8. I know it's kinda off-topic, but I have to mention it: I will always be amazed at how beautiful my country, Spain, is. It's just perfect for GOT. Dragonstone looks amazing.
  9. Leaks seem to be 100% true. Fine trailer by the way.
  10. Jon will become King. R+L=J Stannis will die. I actually believe he will lose the Battle of Ice, but we'll see. Arya will return to Westeros. Tyrion and Dany will meet. He'll act as her Hand. Sandor is the Gravedigger Ramsay will kill Roose. Sansa will go North with the Knights of the Vale and LF at ther back (and likely, without Harry) Cersei will kill the HS. Daenerys will leave Daario. Barristan Selmy will die at Mereen.
  11. People seem to hate Season 5. I don't think it was that bad. It was one of the weakest, but had 3 extraordinary episodes. I found Season 2 to be my least favourite. I'd say Season 4 and 6 were top notch for me. Season 1 and 3 I loved as well.
  12. Yeah. Dance would be my pick if I had to choose one. It would be the closest of the two to GOT. I believe the Blackfyre Rbellion is also a good possibility.
  13. Tywin was 19 when he said that. He matured with time, like every one of us do. His ruthlessness though did not. He simply matured, he knows he cannot threaten Lords who have hostages like he did in those years, but Tywin feels caged in any of these kind of situations.
  14. I wouldn't guess the fate of any character because no one is safe...but I'm fairly certain that Dany will die.
  15. Two big things: -The Dorne plot. Once you leave fAegon out of the Show, it doesn't make any sense to film and spend time with Dorne. -The Sansa-Ramsay plot. It's clear to me that D&D took a shortcut and put Sansa with Ramsay and the Vale army in th North because that's what's going to happen on the books: Sansa will marry Harry and they will ride North to take it back for the Starks. If they had made Sansa be just Alayne and kept her as our viewpoint of the Winterfell plotline it would have been far better. Make the Northern Conspiracy with Karstark and Umber in Season 5 and Jon rescuing her in Season 6, but without the marriage between Ramsay and Sansa and LF and playing their schemes agianst the Boltons..
