Tywin Smokin a Blunt Posted June 10, 2013 Share Posted June 10, 2013 That the producers are jumping certain storylines way ahead, while stretching stuff like Dany in Meereen and Jon at the Wall out to set up for season 4. Jon's story is right on pace with where it was from ASoS, as is Dany, they still have plenty left to do. However by getting Bran through the wall already, and Jaime back in KL, and sending Asha looking for Theon instead of sitting at Deepwood Mott waiting for Stannis which is completely out of left field, those stories are poised to be starting material from books 4&5 next year.My question to you is, How do these changes effect your predictions for what we'll see next year?Im personally excited if they do speed up Bran's timeline significantly. Get him to Bloodraven as soon as possible so he can start his training, then you can use him as the TV audience's window into some of the foreshadowing they've missed from the first three books so far, and also to start effecting events in the world. I understand that his timeline in the books is more realistic for his ragged troupe, but I still would have loved it if GRRM would have gotten them there earlier. Not sure the purpose of getting Jamie back so soon, thought he didn't arrive until after the PW. Asha going on the rescue mission strikes me as a pretty big change. Her presence at Deepwood was a significant point in ADWD, so unless they plan on getting her there another way or change Stannis's story, that could end up being a major divergence from the source material.
