As to Brienne: Some believe that the first "reveal" of Stoneheart will be when they catch Brienne...I don't think that'll be the case as I think they'll set that up before hand (this season) then next year will be a cliffhanger (or rather a "hanger lol) for Brienne and Pod. Of course, by then Jaime should be in the Riverlands trying to make peace (should see the Blackfish here again I guess). Then Brienne will show up to meet Jaime...which is where it is left off in Book 5.
All of this, of course, could get either condensed or added to depending on how it's handled by the show runners and whether GRRM gets more material out....
Wow, I was expecting some stupid thing about how he is really Jaqen or Syrio, but it actually makes sense. And it makes Daario even more of a douche by combining him with another hella-douche. I wonder if Daario is old enough though.
As a follow up to the above discussion of losing some of the characters next season. It looks as though Bronn will be coming back...good news! The reason this is possible is that the producers are trying to cast for Lollys Stokeworth so it seems Bronn might be back. More casting news here:
