Fair enough, but I think we are in uncharted waters here. One of two things is happening:
This season the show is spoiling a ton of stuff from the next book(s); OR
The show is diverging into some kind of alternate universe Thrones which differs significantly from the literary version.
Given all the changes we have seen to this point, I'm leaning towards #2. Point being, I'm not sure they are using it as a roadmap anymore and have the freedom to organically change things that maybe serve the Tv storylines differently from those in the book.
Or not. Writers are crazy!
That's a TV theory because the actors playing J and M look like they could be related. They look nothing alike in the books, I'd be shocked if it were true. I wholeheartedly agree with R+L=J though and it's practically confirmed now.
IMO, it's more than just the strong resemblance between the two actors. It's no coincidence that Howland Reed is the only other one besides Ned to survive the battle at the Tower of Joy. That puts him right there in position to help. And we know twins run in the Targaryen bloodline. And her character is about the right age and seems to be waiting in the wings for something to happen, always just offscreen but seemingly important.
Definitely could be wrong but seems pretty plausible to me.
Agree the stuff with Dany and Mereen really makes the whole story drag noticeably. Would be happy to skip anything outside of Westeros for a few episodes.
The Tower of Joy stuff should be good when they get more into it. Still thinking R + L = J & M but we'll see.
Did Rickon crawl out of a time warp? He looked about 10 years older. Sucks that he's in the clutches of the Boltons now. I assume we'll be treated to another gory end because Martin sure enjoys killing Starks. Please just make it quick and spare us eight episodes of torture-porn with Ramsey...
I'm glad I was able to help everyone who asked. I still haven't heard back from Mikey D, so there is a slim chance I might get home with a single spare, I'll let everyone know as soon as I know one way or the other.
Holy crap...can Marvel start making DC movies? Please?
