    Books vs Show: How much difference?

    I think there will be significant difference. The only similarities as I see it will be a) The threat of others will be resolved before the war for the throne. b) Dany will become darker (in a much more believable way) and the people will become distrustful of her dragons. c) Tyrion will betray Dany by freeing Jaime (the betrayal for love). I believe George will have told them who he has sitting on the throne (if anyone) but that is the kind of detail I can see them changing to whoever they feel like.
  2. I think there was plenty of foreshadowing but the final descent still felt out of place. I think they should have written the show so that she should have just ignored the fleet, burned the scorpions around the city, then burned the troops, then burned the red keep causing masses of civilian deaths who Cersei was using as a shield, but still actually still going after a military target. I could believe her becoming a butcher, but not a mindless butcher the way she just destroyed random parts of the city.

    What will Jon do?

    I thought there was going to be a split between her and Jon and then a reconciliation once it became apparent she was pregnant. Now I'm not sure they can make that work and feel genuine in a single episode though. I do believe she is pregnant though and that will be a factor.

    They ruined Jaime once and for all

    Jaime was the first character they ruined and that happened a long time ago imo. As soon as he arrived back in kings landing before the Sansa-Tyrion wedding instead of after it he became a completely different character from the books since he immediately broke his vows again. It was a great pity because I felt the actor really nailed the character up until that point.

    Who will know about Jon Snow at the end?

    I am convinced he is legitimate. The three kingsguard were guarding the king.

    Who will know about Jon Snow at the end?

    I have a feeling it will be extensively known, if not believed. I think Jon Connington will be faced with it and jump to the, wrong, conclusion that Rhaeger named Jon after him. I can also see another ironic conversation about his heritage, this time with Aegon Mopartis, about Jon not really looking like Aegon.

    the honeyed locusts...

    The Shavepate poisoned the locusts. If Dany eats them, Hizdar is implicated. If Hizdar eats them, Dany is implicated. Whatever happens it is a possible path back to power.
  8. We do actually from Tyrions pov. However that is irrelevant, just as Robert Baratheon didn't crush Aegons head, I was not suggesting he does it himself.
  9. I was thinking that Tommen might have his head crushed by one of faegons men to mirror the death of the real Aegon.

    How are they gonna get outta this one??

    Politically Jaime's birth carries much more value to the nights watch than hundreds of men. Functionally he would actually be better now than when he had two hands because he is a better person, but even without the readers knowledge, he would be fine as a steward or lord commander, just not a ranger or builder. The nightswatch also gain a king of the north who is sympathetic. Regardless I don't really see Catelyn as asking. The trade would be backed up by a large force and largely be made for legitimacy so no vows were broken (although I think Jaime will end up being hugely valuable as lord commander).

    Robb seemed to think they would if he sent 20 men. The kingslayer should be worth more than 20.

    It is supposed to be a decision she doesn't like, something that is very hard for her. That is what GRRM writes about. But there need to be not only compelling reasons why she wouldn't, but compelling reasons why she should. Would it be doing it for Jon or for Robb? Robb's last wish/order was that Jon would succeed him if anything should happen. There was a big deal made about this with a very powerfully written scene. Jon, Robb and Catelyn have always a fully fleshed out and complicated relationship, GRRM has put a lot of words and care into it. And now Robb was murdered. Does she really disrespect his last his last wish? I think not. And it is also logical if she wants to see the north recover as a kingdom as Robb was completely correct, the north needs a son of Eddard Stark to follow and rally around. Now this does rely on Stoneheart still being Catelyn and not a 100% "embodiment of Cat's wrath and fury". Very little is known about Lady Stoneheart as a person because we have only caught glimpses of her from a single chapter of Merret Frey and a single chapter of Brienne. And consider the possibility that the entire Brienne chapter was an act to try and make her do something she wouldn't normally do - betray someone. If she is pure hate and nothing else she would be one of the most one dimensional characters he has ever written. I am sure there is a lot of hate there, but there is definitely cognisant thought as well. Is she close to weeping? Whatever it is there is definitely thought and emotion as she considers Robb's crown. Why did she want the crown and what is she going to do with it? And although there is a great geographical distance between her and the wall, you also need to consider that the last Jaime chapter occurs months (roughly 3) before the most advanced other story lines. Whatever has been happening to Stoneheart, Jaime and co, it hasn't been notable enough to interact with any of these other story lines, travelling to the wall during this time would be perfectly viable. And of course it is a happy coincidence that Jon needs resurrecting and Catelyn can probably resurrect one person by sacrificing her own (un)life. It would be a very powerful way symbolically to give up hate. We will see who is correct when the next book comes out.

    Jaime I believe Catelyn will offer Jaime a chance to take the black as an exchange to free Jon Snow, her sons heir, from his vows. Theon I think Asha will end up using him as a puppet, making him King of the Iron Isles (claiming kingsmoot is invalid because he wasn't present) and ruling through him. I don't have a strong feeling of how he is going to escape from Stannis though. Perhaps the battle will proceed and buy him some time? Perhaps Asha has a plan to escape? Perhaps Bran or Bloodraven or the Three eyed crow will pull some mystic stuff. Arya I find Arya the hardest to know where here story is going. I think news of Jon's "death" will pull her back to Westeros, but then what? I don't feel anything I have heard suggested fits particularly well.

    Do You Think Sam Will Forge His Chain?

    No. I believe Euron is about to sack old town including the citadel.
