    What are you least looking forward to?

    Brienne playing the, "your oath to me"-card would be smart, but I don't see her as a good talker. She did yell that one word though.

    Events you are most looking forward to see in TWOW

    I'll try to go with some things that are not the obvious choices. I'm really intrigued and perplexed by Aegon. I want to think he's actually Rhaegar's son, but part of me sees the logic in the arguments that he is fake. I'm a fan of Aegon, but I'm nervous as to why GRRM waited so long to introduce him into the story- If he were a true player for the game the thrones, wouldn't GRRM have made more of the story about him? So my fear is that his story may end rather quickly, but then that makes me wonder why would Aegon be introduced at all? The current High Septon's identity, or his story, is something that I find very curious. He is either high born, or must have a past not unlike Varys'. He has the conniving skills of Littlefinger and Varys and has the etiquette of Ser Barristan. So who is he? Could he really be lowborn but gained his knowledge and wisdom by traveling Westeros as a septon? He is not in the least bit intimidated by Cersei, and actually plays her like a fiddle. Only Varys and Littlefinger have had that ability. I hope GRRM reveals a little more about him. Maybe even a prologue chapter with our High Sparrow as the POV?

    I find every story line to be fascinating, especially after re-reading several times. The story-line I'm least looking forward to is the one where I see no way for there to be a happy ending, and that would be Jaime and Brienne. Lady Stoneheart seems to be irrational now and I don't see how Jaime or Brienne can both talk their way out of their current situation. All the other story-lines have a potential for a happy ending. My idea of the other story lines and their potential happy ending. -Dany wins in the east and then returns to Westeros -Cersei dies -Jon Snow lives and kicks ass on the Wall -Stannis isn't dead and kicks ass in Winterfall -Snarks and grumkins eat Ramsay Bolton alive -Fake Aegon is actually real Aegon and kicks ass in the south -Arya -Sansa -Arianne Martell rides someone else
  4. Last month Random House announced that there would be an update to the app in March. http://shelf-life.ew.com/2014/02/26/winds-of-winter-exclusive/ Anyone know about when we can expect that?
  5. @ OP Werthead I feel like your last 'edit' really revamped what your originial OP was. Is that info somewhere else now? It was almost GRRM's life story starting in the early 90's and sort of the obstacles he overcame to write the books. I remember info about the '5 year gap' was included in the original OP. Am I going crazy? Was that actually what your original OP was about? If so, where did that info go?
  6. HA! We need a thread for only TV viewers to make predictions like this. It'd be awesome!
  7. Have we established which episodes will have which weddings? I though I've read somewhere on here that they were going to do the Purple Wedding this season. Is Tyrion and Sansa in episode 8? I'm pretty sure RW is episode 9. Any insight anyone?

    Did anybody catch Loras, speaking to Sansa, say, "French sleeves"? C'mon writers, we're in Westeros here. We could at least have called them "Myrish Sleeves."

    Couple questions about Theon. I know what happens in the books, but I'm not sure what Weiss and Benioff are going with things. Is the guy that helped Theon escape the same guy that saved him from the 3 soldiers? Why would Ramsay kill Bolton men? I would have thought that Ramsay sent those three men, or that he was one of them. Basically, can someone explain that part?
  11. I've heard that they're going to do AFFC and ADWD at the same time. Whereas GRRM split the characters in the books, it would be odd to not have Jon Snow for an entire season on the HBO show. So, AFFC+ADWD should still combine to take 3 years. They also have the option to not start every March. Example ASOS1- March 2013 ASOS2- July 2014 Feast+Dance1- November 2015 Feast+Dance2- March 2017 Dance 3- July 2018 TWOW1- September 2019 TWOW2- December 2020 So, by completely random and unofficial (but certain to happen) schedule, GRRM has until the end of 2020, early 2021 to release A Dream of Spring. They could even debut the book and last season in the same week.
  12. I think they'd start the seasons later. Each season has started in March-ish. They could move season four to summer 2014, and then season 5 to fall 2015, or something like that. I can't see the TV show overtaking the series. Although, I think I'm just lying to myself.

    How would you rate episode 201?

    I gave it a 5. I hated the opening scene at the tournament. I wanted more. Tyrion was awesome, as were Cersei and Joffrey. I actually don't hate Cersei and Joff as much as I did while reading. What was that about killing the babies. That wasn't in the book. I felt that that was uncalled for.
  14. I'm going to remain optimistic no matter what, but I think that the hard part of the writing is out of the way. A Feast for Crows was a hard read, and I can't imagine how challenging it was to write. A Dance was a little complicated too. After ADWD I think things are really in place to speed up. There are battles going on everywhere, and less chugging through issues. He doesn't need to introduce new characters, (Arianne, Iron Island POV's), Mereen has reached a boiling point, drastic things are happening in the north, Bran finally made it to the 3-eyed bird, etc. I'm going to hope that it'll be easy writing from here on out. I can only see Arya and Sansa being a little tricky to bring them back from obscurity.
