I'm pretending to be a half-wit. This is all revealed in book 11, in which I kill Bran and Dany to take control of Westeros.

I enjoyed some Ommegang Fire and Blood red ale watching the premier. Probably my favorite of the three released so far. Anyone else tried them?

I believe its so that they can put something else in this season that happens in the third book.
I realize, but the wedding is 3/4 into the 3rd book. Thought they would have put it a bit later. no worries, just thought it was a bit surprising to have it this early. Doesn't seem like there is that much left, guessing we will be seeing a bit of book 4 this season, or maybe they will draw it out a bit.

My wife tried to convince me to get that for the premiere but I went with an AleSmith Speedway Stout instead (which is just absurdly delicious). Maybe I'll get the Ommegang for episode 2.

I've tried the other two, I'll have to pick that one up. Thought they were OK, I was a little let down by the take the black stout, I think I just had too high expectations for it. I did had a growler full of a coffee porter for the premiere though, that was really good.

There was stuff from book 4 last season. Off the top of my head I cant remember what exactly but they started combining things to keep the same timeline like in the books.

What exactly? Last season was all book 3 and that was all a single timeline. The split didn't take place until books 4 and 5 and the series isn't there yet. If something from B4 got added (and I don't think anything was) is damn sure was not done to follow the books timeline.

I cant think of anything off the top of my head. And its minor stuff anyhow, which is also why i cant think of anything. The main plots are all book 3. I remember some random things from book 3 being in season 2 as well.

And youre right, I think I have books 4 and 5 confused with 3 and 4.

Arya doesn't kill the man who killed Lommy until book 6. That's why George RR Martin released that Arya chapter from Winds of Winter.

Yes I think there we'll some majors rewrites from the books as far as timelines as time goes on, it should still be very good.

They have done a few things all ready that differ from the books, and have done a nice job doing it.

I'm sure they have full intentions of keeping the series entertaining for the income it produces obviously, and like I mentioned a few days ago I think there is so much in the later books they have a ton of things they can do with this series for a very long time yet.

And just rearrange them in a linear fashion, which is I'm sure they are doing at the moment.

There's a lot of meat left on the chickens.

Stuff with Theon wasn't in book 3. He didn't reappear until book 4 or 5 and then everything that happened to him was described in the past tense.

So there will be seven books but so far only five have come out. People are worried about him dying.

How many seasons will be milked out of the books? It looks like at least more than seven.
......
I think there was rumors of the tv series ending on 7/8, probably 7 according to a producer which sounds reasonable because book 4 was relatively boring.

HBO should encourage GRR to get on a treadmill and eat more salads or something. At the very least, he'll have a clearer head and work faster and churn out the last book(s) quicker.

The entire Winterfel stuff was different than what happened in the show. It wasn't Theon that burned Winterfel at all.

If you haven't read the books, you'll definitely want to watch tomorrow's episode when it's on. Or avoid the internet until you have.

Regarding season premiere.

They did an amazing job with the destruction of Ice in the very beginning of the premiere.

does Jamie know that Jeffrey is his son?

did Dario join the ex-slave army alone? or did his mercenary group join as well?
