None of the books were too big for paperback. I have all five in paperback and they're all single volumes.

Yea, I have all five in paperback as well. >.>

I took my time reading them, ironically I started after I saw the first season. I finish four within the year, could of probably done all five, but it was hard finding a single copy for DoD's. Well, locally anyways. Also, this is me reading during my work lunchbreaks to past time, if I focused on them I am sure I could of finished them all much sooner, but then there will just be a boring hour at lunch. ;\

I can't find the source, but honestly, if they go extra-canon, it'll be after The Winds of Winter. They're breaking the books into two seasons apiece now (Storm of Swords comprised Season 3 and Season 4, and I estimate that Feast For Crows is going to be about the same, then there's still A Dance With Dragons, so that's into Season 8 before they have to worry about Book 6, giving GRRM an additional 4 years to complete TWOW).

I'm not sure how accurate that is now with the half books per season. The books are broken down with what's going on in the north and what is going on in the south.

And the show seems to be following a more linear, so they will be pulling from all of them. (or that is what I am hoping).

But not saying they can't stretch this into 8 seasons, there is a hell of a lot of content to cover.


Now for something different.

If you guys are not fans of South Park, I would recommend watching the 3 episodes that spoof GoT.

That is the first episode.

The Hound dying in the bar, it seems that they'll extnd his role, which is nice because he's probably my favorite character ATM. I think he's still alive in the book, as the Gravedigger

because I hope it will be explained later...
At least as far as the night's watch at castor's they were the traitors who killed the Lord Commander. :) Idk about the white walker offering up the baby but GRRM is helping with the writing so he's probably using the medium to explain aspects that wouldn't have been shown in any other character's POV. As for Bran being at Castor's.... If they take away Bran's story line I'ma be pissed as hell. Ghost being caged was probably what happened while Ghost was gone for a while there mayhaps. He won't be caged for long. :)

Goodness, the scenes between Ramsay and Theon were painful to read, I would have never guessed they would be even more painful to watch.

Definitely. I always have to find something else to do when those scenes are on. I find them really difficult to watch.

It was an amazing ep, though. Peter Dinklage stole the show in the throne room.

And just as I settle on accepting that Varys is simply in it for the power he has, he makes a meaningful look at the throne in the scene with Oberyn, whom Pedro Pascal plays as if he stepped right out of the books.

Just... wow.

Oh god, Peter was incredible. He had me literally on the edge of my seat with my mouth hanging open.

I'm pretty certain I won't be able to watch Oberyn's battle with the Mountain. I'm not ready to lose him! He brings an amazing dynamic to Kings Landing ... I'm sure I didn't appreciate the character so much in the books.

I really ship Tyrion/Shae, though. That scene between them, and knowing where she's headed, just broke my poor little shipper heart.

That episode was fucking amazing.  From Jaime's appeal to Tywin, to Peter Dinklage's impassioned and embittered speech at the end, it had me on the edge of my seat for the whole episode.

Also, Ramsay Snow is pure evil.  He's a bastard in more ways than one.

Did anyone else notice that the music played during the closing credits was the Rains of Castamere?

I did! Was wondering about the reason. After all, it wasn't particularly a Lannister victory...

I think it was used in an ironic sense.  After all, the Rains of Castamere symbolizes the utter destruction of anyone who opposes Tywin Lannister.  Except Tyrion did just that, ruining Tywin's deal with Jaime, by demanding trial by combat.

I think he actually said "Done", but yes, I know what you mean.  Like Jaime was in complete disbelief that his entreaty actually succeeded.

The episode was awesome sauce. I agree that Peter Dinklage stole the episode. I both dread and look forward to what's coming.

Funny thing ... everyone at work knows I have read the books and I came into work yesterday with everyone going "what's going to happen?! Is he honestly going to fight? Tell me Jaime is going to fight for him!" Made me laugh, especially when they all started speculating in the wrong direction when I wouldn't tell them anything.

I'm really really interested in seeing whom will they blame Lysa on, since they totally omitted that minstrel...   ???

Having always watched this on the small(ish) display of my computer, I watched last week's episode on a big screen in blu-ray quality.

Holy crap.  :o

I don't see who else they can pin it on, since they've not given screen time to any Eyrie inhabitants except Robert, Lysa, Petyr and Sansa.... perhaps Marillion will magically appear as scapegoat next episode.

Edit: OK, just read on the Wiki that adaptation!Marillion had his tongue cut out by Joffrey seasons back so idk what Petyr's got planned, lol.

The preview for next week has Sansa saying Littlefinger has told a lot of lies and she has to tell the truth. So I am quite curious how they are going to go forward. Though, I am glad Lysa is gone now. She irked me something fierce.

I'm so glad I found this thread.

Lets just...get two things out of the way.

"I will be your champion."

Goddamn, ninjas cutting onions.

Also, SO satisfying to see Lysa fly. My god, I lost my shit when he pushed her off. Jesus.

Is it odd that Baelish is kind of stealing the show for me? I love the way he twists and plots things like that, its like he's so deliciously evil and I'm really curious as to how he'll move forward. I do have a question though, does this technically make him Lord of the Vale since he married her? Or does that title still remain in the hands of her little shit-head son?
