  1. It was also totally unbelievable that he would execute one of his allies over his honor because that ally killed of a couple of Lannisters... Oh wait..
  2. cause that never happens in real life...or on other TV shows.... I mean on Turn the main character certainly did not marry the intended of his brother for honor... Totally unbelievable... :shocked:
  3. I guess you totally missed the subplot that Tywin was behind the whole thing in an effort to drive a wedge between the Freys and the Rob Stark....Just another setting of the Red Wedding Stage....
  4. yeah... the show has done a decent job with Selyse's character... she is an unlikable woman who is being set up to be the crazy child murderer all for her faith...the writing is on the wall both in the show and the books lol. Additionally, Stannis is just too good at tactics, and is gaining steam..in the books he continues to gather more to his cause, and he has learned to adapt, becoming less "Iron" and more "Steel" IMHO the only thing that will stop him dead in his tracks and break him, will be the loss of Shireen, it is the only thing he actually loves in the whole world.
  5. Rhaegar told the KG and his friends there would be changes after the Trident...and while Aerys was a nut case Rhaegar was well respected and even admired by Selmy.
  6. I do not think that will be much of a book deviation....Shireen represents Selyse's failure at producing an heir for Stannis... she loathes Shireen, and with Mel's nudging, Selyse will burn her at the stake in the Book IMHO... It will be the downfall of Stannis, because without something like that, Stannis would conquer the seven kingdoms IMHO... I mean the only real strategist left that the Crown has is Randall Tarley...
  7. Coldhands was just a meat puppet for Bloodraven, SB is an interesting character but can be combined for budget..... Lady Stoneheart is a consequence of breaking Guest Right, and is a pivotal plot driving charter.
  8. Because Stoneheart's Resurrection is a direct result of breaking Guest Right..The Rat King story is introduced in the books and hopefully the show to show there is precedent for a supernatural curse on those who break Guest Right.
  9. This would make more sense then not having Stoneheart.... They have set up her arc through the BWB and the the Rat King story....They do not necessarily need to use Michelle for the role since she does not speak.... but the character needs to be in there.
  10. Well a Harpy is a female gender, and gender is important to those people, as her male agents are "Sons" of the Harpy... It is not just that the Green Grace is female or that she is the only one Dany trusts, it also has to do with the inside information the "Sons" have... The only way to have that info is to have someone on the inner circle...all evidence at this moment points directly to the Green Grace.
  11. He actually supplanted her after her incarceration by the Sparrows, and was going to have her shipped off to Casterly Rock...and yes that is why Varys killed him... because he would have stabilized the kingdoms.
  12. Of course they will return... That being said they have had characters in the Riverland area and have chosen to mention little, if nothing, of the BWB, the Frey's dropping like flies, etc...in the books the Riverlands story is never on the back burner either... it is on going and continuous.
  13. Yeah for a while I have believed that Shireen is going to be burned in the books and the show... It will happen while Stannis is away, and it will be what breaks him, because Stannis in the books without something like this would become ruler of the 7 kingdoms... he is an excellent tactical leader, is building support in the North, and there is really no enemy left, that can match him on the battlefield...After he wins the battle of Winterfell, The North will be lockstep with Stannis.
  14. Not really... The BWB was neat until it drops entirely from the scene... it leaves people wondering what is going on in the Riverlands...and was totally unnecessary if you are not going to complete the arc... from an adaption pov is was poorly done, from a stand alone, again people who have not read the books are wondering wtf it was all about, since we have not heard anything about them since... These decisions are made on a season per season basis, and it shows... Arya's list is now only 3 people.... ok....Arya asks the Hound last season why he has no gold... totally forgetting to say that the BWB took his gold in season 3....It is horrible continuity and indefensible unless you care nothing for details.
  15. And yet she was subtle in KL when she had access to Sansa... Brianne saw her in the Godswood in the show and yet stayed at a distance instead of pledging her sword to her, telling her about her vow to her mother etc... This is where the TV writers have difficulty going off script and keeping a character true to their nature...
