    Post discussions about differences between books and TV in here.

    Conjecture about what will happen in the next season is welcome.

    This thread will also cover all the casting news and interviews Baihua likes to post. (So these can be placed in here to avoid upsetting the TV purists...)

    References to the books is limited to the pace of the TV. So discussing how the bar fight in season 4 episode 1 was different to the book is fine.

    I give this thread 2 hours before it is locked...

    That one is useless for people that have not finished the books though.

    So do what I did:
    - stay out of thread
    - read all books
    - read thread.

    Yeah its pretty much been a spoiler topic for ages. I guess in large part because the first 4 books are not exactly new.

    I've got 'Lassie' on in the background, which is currently at a point where Tyrion Lannister is playing a travelling Irish gypsy.

    He has just said "Winter is coming".

    He always struck me as the most realist of the Lannisters.

    Yeah this would do, although given the last time anyone posted here I can see why no one knew it existed!

    I imagine it'll get some traction now the show has started back up.

    Episode to chapter comparison to the end of season 3.

    That shows it is diverging. Bran in particular was a long way behind in series 3.

    Isn't Bran (book 3 spoiler...)already done with his book 3 plot in the TV series? Book 3 ends with him meeting coldhands after they pass through the wall from the nightfort. He's gone through the wall already on TV, even if there's no coldhands.

    Was the Red Wedding ever referred to by that name in the books?

    Cannot remember it myself?

    Pretty much. Guess it was more a case of editing down his parts. The graph shows that pretty much half his book 2 story was condensed into a series 3 episode.

    Yes. I remember Davos openly calling a member of House Frey a liar when he claimed Robb turned into a direwolf and attacked.

    Been mentioned over times as well.

    Right. Thanks.

    What colour is the Sansa / Tyrion wedding referred to as?

    Has Ser Jorah's surname been mentioned in the TV series yet?

    Think so been a while since I watched season one.

    I think they made sure to jump straight to Jorah after the conversation to make sure TV viewers knew it was him.
