Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot in General (GoT) Posted May 28, 2019 Throwing in my two cents : Same what, different how : - Dany going dark/mad. The way the show did it was ridiculous, but it's definitely happening in the books - Sansa as QITN - Euron/Cersei alliance - Jaime/Brienne banging - R+L=J - Theon dying -Jorah's sacrifice On the fence : - Bran as king. There's definitely a lot more set up for it in the books, but Bran is also a lot younger so idk how that would work out. - Jaime and Cersei dying together . It's a possibility but 1) Jaime won't be there to protect her/run away with her (he might be the one that kills her) 2) I feel, wrt his weirwood dream, he is more likely to die fighting during the Long Night. - Brienne as KG : again, I won't discard it but the books put a lot more emphasis on her being the heir to Tarth imo. - Arya leaving to explore the world : not OOC but not widely satisfying either. It'd depend on how it's written, just like with everything. - Jon going in exile : see above.
