    Oh yeah, that makes all the sense in the world.

    Hey, I just realized...once AND EVEN FOR THIS THREAD...HEAVY SPOILERS...Osha and Rickon split off, they still are not accounted for in the books. That's ****ing amazing. And therein lies the quandry the producers face. They seem to be very keen to juggle timelines in order to keep all the major players on the board. I have heard them address that, at some point, they may have to predict what old George has in mind for some of em. I HAVE to figure Osha, and to a lesser extent, Rickon have MAJOR parts to still play. Something to think about.

    Thats something i never thought about. He is part of the writing process though and I'm sure he has a general idea of the characters futures

    But...is he willing to spill on his plans going forward? He is a known crank...I can see him withholding.

    I just watched episode 2, and man, they are SPEEDING through the first half of the book. It's great though. I loved it.

    I think they're just making stuff up in order to keep Rickon and Osha on the show without their extremely long hiatus. Kinda like what they're doing to Re...er...Theon.

    And in regards to Barriston Selmy, you KNEW he was going to be exposed from the minute he helped Daenerys and Jorah. It was an amazing part of the book the way he was eventually revealed and the chaos it created, but it was something that just wasn't going to work on the screen because the viewers would recognize him right away. I'm curious to see how she eventually comes to that point on the show.

    Oh yeah...that point. Good point Ecktore. Yeah, I wonder how long they will keep Osha/Rickon tied to the Young Lord.

    And, if you like seeing what they do to my poor Theon...you are a sadist.

    I had to read my post again, because didn't understand why you think i enjoy what they're doing to Theon. I don't like what they're doing to Theon. I meant to say that they don't want Theon, Rickon and Osha to go missing for multiple seasons the way they do in the books. That's why they're making stuff up for them. Of course, Theon's is what you didn't get to read in the books.

    Ok, you can understand my confusion???? Yeah, I could do without the transformation...but I do like that they have kept him in the Game. Makes a lot more sense. I have to say, Benioff/Weiss have been spot on so far as far as what to edit and how to move up stuff. I am concerned when it comes to Arya. Her arc is ridiculous...yet CRUCIAL. That is going to be well tricky. Dany has had the most change so far, and that will get even moreso moving forward, but they have been really deft at trimming there. So much to see moving forward. I just hope the quality stays the same because they really have handled things brilliantly in the face of overwhelming odds.

    Arya's arc is ridiculous... ridiculously awesome. I also had Mance as being younger, maybe about Jaime's age. Rickon probably ends up ruling Winterfell since Bran has another job. Not making us suffer through five episodes of Barristan in some ridiculous disguise was a great call by the makers of the HBO show. Pulling off the transformation to Reek is going to be tough to pull off, it worked in the books because it was skipped and two books went by without seeing him. I have total faith, though.

    If you think George needed an editor in book three, have you seen the two after that? Also, the last message before these new ones, where an article is quoted "No solid release date has been revealed for Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the proposed seven-volume saga, but many expect it to hit shelves late this year or at some point in 2014" - that is hilarious.

    You know, I went to bed thinking about this after I responded about the show making up lines for Rickon and Osha. I think you're right about Rickon ruling Winterfell. My theory is that Rickon and Osha return to Winterfell and are hiding there. Blending in with the commoners while it's under someone else's rule. Remember, "There must always be a Stark in Winterfell".

    In the books, Rickon completely vanishes when he splits off from Bran, since neither he nor Osha get their own chapters. It also doesn't help that he was barely seen in the television show until Theon took over Winterfell. I believe Davos is currently looking for him in the books.
