A Song of Ice and Fire SPOILER THREAD (srsly spoilers from all the books ITT)

Don't want to find the old thread. Leave it dead. Something GRRM can't do with certain characters.

WHEN THE FUCK IS WINDS OF WINTER COMING OUT YOU MASTER NECKBEARD EVIL GENIUS GEORGE?

Also, I've decided I'm pissed about the casting of THE MANCE.

Mance was abso-fucking-lutely useless last season. Bad casting, bad writing for the character.

If they ruin the Viper's character/storyline or fail to make his fight against the Hound epic I swear I'll never forgive the show.

^ The mountain deosnt have a helmet + shield from what I've seen in the teaser. Which already ruins the scene a bit for me actually.

The mountain with shield + helmet as described in the books would have looked fucking brilliant, maybe they had issues with movement, etc.

edit: i think he has a helmet in the first milisecond of the gif, not sure.

I think I remember Gregor using a two handed sword in one hand along with the shield because he's just that badass. It's been since the Dance that I read that scene. No helmet doesn't foreshadow Robert Strong very well. However, if the actor can be a scary fucker with his eyes and expressions, perhaps no helmet is ok.

For that scene to work, it's really all on Oberyn. Gregor still has to look huge and deadly though. I imagine it'd be a tough scene to make look right. They did Hound v Beric really well, but other fights like Jorah/Barristan/Daario v all comers was Xena terrible.


Oh and while most people, me included, are severely annoyed at Dany's Dance regression, TV audiences will riot. Not sure how that will play out on the show, but that's a ways off.

I still think Season 1 has carried the story best so far.

It's not going to be a ways off though. They are dipping into book 5 for Dany already this season. I just read the other day an interview with a guy named Darren Kent who said he is playing a goat herder in an episode this season. And he said in the episode Dany's dragons are out of control and eating children. That is way into book 5 already. Plus they cast Leaf this season too for Bran. All this means that Martin is totally screwed.

And I agree with all of you the Mance casting is horrific. Hands is a good actor, just not for this role. It's to bad that Dominic West turned them down before even knowing what they were just because he didn't want to go to Iceland. That would have been perfect Mance.

i'm not 100% sure it has all to do with the casting. he could have done with a bit more screentime. tormund giantsbane is the most "memorable" guy from the wall along with ygritte. still, he should have more focus this season so we'll see.

he was screwed anyway, they were always gonna catch up. I believe he'll get winds out before they delve into the major plotlines/hit the end of it (though I guess we could see the battles of ice/fire before the book) but the last book was always gonna be passed.

if they hit dany dance stuff this early I dread to think of her filler for next season, though. I mean I guess they could actually develop mereen as an interesting place unlike the books, but that might require competence beyond them. i guess getting victarion-> tyrion to dany can be done over the course of next season, though.

Yeah the thing is, now that they know the ending of the book story, we won't really know what we're seeing. If they start inventing scenes, will they really be invented? Or will they be things forthcoming from the books that they know about. There is going to be know way to know for sure I guess until the books are released. I'm convinced they will do their own version of an ending, but how they get there, might incorporate some stuff from the final 2 books that they know about. I'm not sure I like that, but it is what it is.
