This is why I think the stag rider won't be a part of the show.

    This is kinda why Selmy revealed himself to Danaerys as soon as he did in the show.
    I was really hoping to see 'Strong Belwas' along with Selmy in the show.

    I really need to read the books again because the show has dulled some of my memories. I think i'm mostly looking forward to seeing where Danearys story goes. I sure hope Mr. Martin gets her to Westeros without any unfortunate incidents.....wait, never mind about that last part as i'm sure a nuclear explosion will come into play at some point

    Interesting. I always assumed the changes in the show such as leaving out some of the Lanisters or killing off certain characters was done because they didnt have a part to play in the later books and it wouldnt cause any problems down the line.

    I thought so as well at first but I heard GRRM state during this past season (3) that this "butterfly" affect could come up. I didn't know anything about the specific changes (the singer and the Tyrells). In fact, I didn't know that the guy who lost his tongue (on TV) was the same guy that has dealings with Sansa later (in book 3 and 4). To me, they could just add another character for that and it won't be a big deal. The Tyrells I'm no so sure about....as much of that is probably part of the books that haven't been written.

    Have any of you heard the arguments for the concepts that R+L=J (Raegar Targaryan + Lyanna Stark = Jon Snow)

    Or the far-out concept that Roose Bolton is an immortal?

    I haven't heard the Bolton argument at all...I don't know where THAT one comes from at all. The only character I know of that is anywhere near "immortal" is Coldhands. Who, BTW, may or may not be in the TV show. I still think that quick shot in the earlier preview was him. We'll see....

    The R+L=J thing is mostly based on the first book as Ned was still alive. His POV chapters are the primary material for that one. That, as we know, has not been revealed in the books yet but I'm pretty certain it is spot on. The few other references in the books are a red herring.

    I'm glad you brought this thread up as it is needed to avoid spoilers in the other one.

    I liked that they came back around to the Ser Dontos storyline(on the show). It was messy/awkward in the book and I think they did a really nice job of trimming it up. It will be especially good at showing Littlefinger's casual cruelty if his fate is the same as in the books.
    Always thought it was telling how little it mattered in the end who it was that murdered Joffrey.

    The Roose Bolton idea comes from his sketchy age comparisons to other characters, obsession with leeching, flaying men, being pretty okay with his bastard killing all this other children, and the fact that Ramsay has the same eyes as Roose and could be used as 'a new skin' when his current body starts to fail.

    I still wonder why the Tyrells had the poison planted and brought in by Sansa. Why didn't Olenna just bring the pill in herself? It didn't make much sense....

    As to Littlefinger: that guy is just the "king of chaos". He essentially started the whole damn thing by talking Lysa Arryn into poisoning her husband.
