[Poll] How would you rate episode 509? in E09: The Dance of Dragons Posted June 8, 2015 No one (i hope) is doubting it but it will be far more complicated than "we've got no food and there's a blizzard, honey come here for a second and give daddy a little help."unfortunately there are plenty of people doubting it. I do think you're right that the scene will play out much differently in the books. I think we were witnessing one of those mash up scenes they've done so many times in the past and take two similar scenes that happen at different times and condense them into one. Stannis won't burn Shireen to get to Winterfell in the books, it'll be for some other purpose we don't know about yet that comes after he is reunited with his family.
