    Totally agree. As I said, I think these three seasons are only the preamble to the greater story. That's why so many characters are expendable and it's hard to discern who are the protagonists and who are the villains. It's such a well-told and extremely convoluted tale.

    Damn, didn't realize that Joffrey is 21 years old now. Sansa is turning 17 and Arya is turning 16. Damn TV breaks.

    'Game Of Thrones' writer David Benioff on series future: 'There is a ticking clock' | Film & TV News | NME.COM

    However, there is a worry that he won't have finished writing the sixth and seventh by the time the TV series catches up, with some suggesting that the show runners will have to stretch out books four and five over several seasons to give Martin more time to finish.

    Benioff told Entertainment Weekly that stretching out the show would be catastrophic. He said: "There is a ticking clock here. We can't wait too long because of the kids. We have this wonderful cast, but we don’t have an infinite amount of time…We don’t want to become a show that outstays its welcome and tries to turn each book into three seasons."

    He added: "Part of what we love about these books and the show is this sense of momentum and building toward something. If we tried to turn this into a 10-season show we'd strangle the golden goose."

    Author Martin also insisted that he doesn't think there will be a problem with the show and his books overlapping. "I think the odds against that happening are very long. I still have a lead of several gigantic books. If they include everything in the books, I don't think they're going to catch up with me. If they do, we'll have some interesting discussions."

    Loved the episode. Especially loved the editing. The transitions from scene to scene were almost... I dunno.... sadistically beautiful.

    I call BS on this one. Benioff is dead on...and Martin knows it.

    Not to spoiler any content, but the show will probably have to shorten and cut out many, many things from A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons to keep the pace up. I think they could (and they should) overtake him within the next season, or two seasons (tops). I think it's even doubtful that Martin will have his new book out by then...

    Once the finish the material from book 3, they're going to have to tell books 4 & 5 concurrently since the timelines overlap. Which means the end of book 3 plus the opening of books 4/5 is TV season 4.

    Then you have the rest of books 4 & 5 taking up TV seasons 5/6 at least. By then, Martin should have already released book 6, so figure season 7+. Hopefully he's then had enough of a head start to finish what would be expected to be the final book. But by then we're talking season 9 or something.
