  1. It depends on how you interpret the word "suggests", but we got this from Illyrio: This implies that the Blackfyres live on through the female line. @Ran Wasn't there some additional info about Maelys the Monstrous in the draft version that got edited out of the finished chapter?
  2. I know it isn't a big deal per se, but even those tiny things make the show less faithful to the source material.
  3. Well, yes, for the most part. He thought for a long time that he would finish the books before the show caught up with him, and the fact that it did catch up is an "accident", of sorts. This is what he said on 60 minutes the day before season 8 premiered: So the fates of the main characters will almost definitely be the same, based on his own words here.
  4. As I understood it, he meant that the fates of minor characters will be different, but not the major ones.
  5. I mean, George did say that his ending won't be that much different from the show's ending.
  6. "Badass killer girl does badass killer girl things" sounds like an easy concept to pitch to an executive.
  7. Each D&E story is about 100 pages or so. Each of them is supposed to be adapted into a 10 episode series, IIRC. How can you do that without tons of filler material?
  8. That's what I'm worried about as well, since stretching out the source material almost never works out. If Peter Jackson couldn't make three good movies out of the Hobbit, I doubt HBO can make a whole series out of D&E that isn't subpar.
  9. It's a shame that we never got to know what king Bran's tax policy actually is.
  10. Yeah, that's the thing. You need absolutely outstanding writing to make this work, and I just don't see that happening. I would imagine that most good writers would decline the moment they hear the idea.
  11. Ah, I see. It's just that I spent many years at the Theforce.net forums, and over there people weren't allowed to post twice in a row, they had to wait before someone else posted. I know this doesn't apply here, but I still haven't got rid of those reflexes.
  12. Nah, I think that things will end up be pretty much as they were on the show, unfortunately.
  13. Since I was the last to post here a few weeks ago, I was waiting the whole time for somebody else to post here before asking my question today, but no one did. Oh, well...
  14. Tywin was absent from King's Landing until ASoS, so I don't think he even noticed how twisted Joffrey was until it was too late.
  15. Because Theon needed to be the right age at the start of AGoT.
  16. @Ran Why was Gerold Hightower chosen as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard after the death of Ser Duncan instead of Harlan Grandson, who I assume was the most senior active member? I guess the KG don't follow the principle of seniority.
  17. I believe that was the initial contract, where HBO got the rights to just adapt ASOIAF. He signed a new one in 2021, where HBO got the rights to everything related to Westeros. That was reported to be a mid-8 to 9 figure deal, so I assume he traded much of his influence for more money.
  18. The first episode of the show will be aired on Fortnite.
  19. I don't want to defend GRRM too much, but I'm not sure how much leverage and veto power he has within HBO. I assume he didn't have much veto power even during GoT, since he wasn't able to stop them from changing Jeyne Westerling's character, plus many other things.
  20. On a similar note, I wish there were more interactions between Ned and Robb/Jon. We don't get much apart from the stuff in the first AGoT chapter.
  21. Plus, a lot of the elements that are being critisized have nothing to do with fantasy.
