protar Posted February 13, 2012 Share Posted February 13, 2012 I think that Barristan will be killed off before he can reveal the full horror of Aerys' reign to Dany. Hypothetically this means that he could last a significant portion of the next book. I think he will be mortally wounded in the battle and die shortly after.We have not seen a viewpoint character killed off (for good) in their own pov chapter and I expect that this will remain the case in the future. I really want it to be Brienne's viewpoint through which we read the inevitable meeting between Jaime and UnCat. The turmoil in that chapter would be too much to resist!I also think that Jon will no longer be a viewpoint character (saving a whole load of chapter space) and instead we will see other points of view converge on the Wall - such as Theon Greyjoy, Asha Greyjoy, Davos Seaworth and Melisandre - with Bran involved to a certain extent!I'm determined that Arya will be involved in the King's Landing storyline.Arianne and JonCon are converging too, which will reduce the required chapters over there too.Having multiple POV's in one place was all well and good in the earlier books but now that there are so many POV's George needs to be taking every opportunity he can get imo to cut down on POV's.
