FacelessGod Posted May 6, 2013 Share Posted May 6, 2013 (I'm not really sure if this should be in this section or not but whatever)Does anybody feel that the TV show is stopping the potential for later plot twists in the remaining novels?Some examples:Edric Storm and any theories regarding him and his claim to the throne or Robert's bastards in general, as I'm assuming that Mel has taken Gendry in the latest episode to provide the king's blood she needs which she had been attempting to get from Edric, before Davos stepped in. This subsequently also has knock on effects regarding Gendry himself, the brotherhood, Arya and Gendry's relationship, Brienne I guess too etc etcRobb's marriage. By making Robb's wife some random woman from the Free Cities, it stops anything theories regarding the future loyalties of the Westerlings after the Red Wedding and there's also been no talk of an heir with his wife in the series which kind of restricts lots of speculation around that.The impact of Qarth on the battle for Slaver's Bay. I mean Dany has basically killed all of the important people in Qarth at the end of season two, before suddenly leaving at the beginning of season three with seemingly no consequences.There are other examples that I might think of later but I'm really just wondering if anybody else is kind of disappointed with it or if anybody thinks the show might end up taking a completely different direction in later seasons.(And then there is always the lack of depth to Tywin, over use of Olenna Tyrell and sympathetic characterisation of Cersei in the show and also the nagging feeling that in Varys and LF's speeches they're giving away all of their plans.)ps I'm new.
