    The Regret of Killing Characters

    That's right. The chapter could end with Pycelle either writing or acknowledging some secret documents he wrote about things nobody else alive would know, followed by him feeling a hard blow to the back of his head. End chapter. So yeah, I don't think it's Pycelle George regrets killing.

    TWOW in July 2020 seems ever more likely

    I really hope, once Winds is done and people have had time to read it, that he makes a long and detailed blog post about this. You're right, something definitely happened that George was not planning on. It must've been (might still be, who knows) quite the obstacle if this man had to tack on another 4 years in addition to the previous 4 years before 2015 that he had to work on Winds (although I think he took a 6 month writing break to do ADWD promotions, I could be wrong though). One of the only things I could think of is he got to a certain POV character that he didn't think he'd have any issues with and things didn't go as planned. It could be the character he killed off that he said he "needed", which suggests to me that the character can't simply be replaced. If that's the case, then yeah, he screwed himself and should've made outlines for his novels like the people who work closely with him have been begging him to do for decades.

    TWOW in July 2020 seems ever more likely

    It will have been NINE YEARS since ADWD was released when July 2020 comes around. Even though George travels too much and has other projects, nine years is a long time. He has to be almost done by this point. If he doesn't finish it next year, then that's when I'll lose hope of him ever releasing Winds.

    Cleganebowl Predictions

    I was hoping Sandor would grab that torch that was in the background, but other than that, it was exactly what I was hoping for. Definitely one of the best parts of the episode.

    How can it take 2 years?

    The battles and CGI.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    I'm so disappointed Theon didn't get to fight the Night King one-on-one. None of the White Walkers actually did anything the entire episode. It was pretty good overall, but I'm disappointed in the writing.

    What are you least looking forward to?

    Probably Daenerys chapters. I didn't find her intolerable in ADWD, but she was definitely a weak POV in that book IMO. Sam and Bran's chapters were a bit of a drag at points, but I imagine that they'll become more interesting in Winds.

    TWoW Prologue POV

    My guesses would be Maester Creylen, maester of Casterly Rock, Sybell Spicer, or Ser Forley Prester. Maester Creylen could give us some information on Casterly Rock and the Lannisters residing there, including if they're going to play a role in the future. Sybell Spicer, like @Jabar of House Titansaid above me, knows important things that I believe need to be revealed already. Robb died in Book 3, this will be Book 6. It's time for some answers. And, like many others, I hope she dies. Ser Forley Prester is in charge of the army bringing Jeyne and Edmure to Casterly Rock and he seems like a good soldier and loyal to House Lannister. If he ends up dying somehow, that would be a big blow to House Lannister's army.

    Arya will kill Bradamar Frey

    I hope she does, or at least encounters him at some point. George made the effort to state in the House Frey tree that he was specifically in Braavos and is a ward under a merchant named Oro Tendyris. It would be a wasted opportunity IMO if she doesn’t run into him. There could be inner conflict with Arya as she debated whether or not Bradamar deserves to die just for having the last name Frey.
  11. What you just typed is different than accusing him of not working on it at all the last few years. I've seen many people claim that he's stopped working on it entirely, which I think is just incorrect. I'm by no means a GRRM fanboy, but I don't think he would just flat out lie to his fans when he's said he's been working on it. I do agree with others when they say that the main characters being too young ended up screwing him in the end (notably Bran and Arya, they are definitely at least 3 years too young IMO).
  12. No...just no. People like you are basically calling GRRM a liar when he's said continuously over the years that he's been working on it, but that progress is slower than he would've liked. It's pretty obvious that George wants to complete the series himself if you bother to read his blog posts and comments.

    The Regret of Killing Characters

    I don't see how it could be Stannis. Tormund and Jon believe that at least some parts of the Pink Letter have to be true, but Stannis being dead can easily be a lie or something that Ramsay, if he indeed was the one who wrote it, believes is true.
