    No mention of the Assassin then. Shame but I wouldn't be surprised if most have forgotten it? But then they could have shown it in the scene with Bran? Also looking more and more likely that we won't be seeing Coldhands.

    I think most people have forgotten about season 1 by now.

    Coldhands in Bran's vision?

    Order of ascendancy in King's Landing:

    Oldest boy to youngest boy.

    Then

    Oldest girl to youngest girl.

    Bastards cannot ascend.

    So Joffrey's heir is Tommen despite Mycella being the older sibling.

    But Tommen was born within wedlock and was accepted by his marital father. (Who also happened to be king at the time).

    He is also very much Joffrey's heir as they are full blood brothers. (It just happens Joffrey held a title that perhaps he should not have held).

    I just realise how much easier it will be for people regarding spoilers after this season ends, as nothing interesting happens in the next two books anyway. I can think of only one major event of interest which I think was the very last thing to happen in aDwD.
    I get the feeling they're moving as much of the AFFC/ADWD setup forward as possible so that they can get it out of the way as quickly as possible. Like they're setting up deepwood motte already, some stories moved forward, Jaime's already got his golden hand and is training his left hand.

    Jamie has some scenes with The Blackfish coming from Feast.

    They might focus a bit on the fall out between him and Cersei before he sets off.

    They teased Tywins secret liking of women as well.

    Also did I hear the Balon Greyjoy dwarf right saying ''I'm drowning''?

    If so did they kill him off screen or just mocking the Ironborns religion?

    I know but in the dwarfs play the one playing Balon clearly says Help I'm drowning which is either a nod to how he dies or just making fun of the religion? But either way they are saying the war is over which would suggest the Ironborn are done.

    Also did Latin just purposely spoil Littefingers role in the PW in the other topic? He made a post complaining about a spoiler then in the next post he mentions him.

    Is the surname 'Snow' essentially a reference to being a bastard?

    I thought that just seemed random to go from complaining about a spoiler then guessing a character that's not been seen since early season 3.

    The talk in the TV thread about Margery not being eligible for the throne as the marriage was not consummated is an interesting point!

    Yes, it's a good point, but in that case who is next in line for the throne?

    (I know the answer to this, but am very confused as to whether book spoilers are allowed here)

    @Salaman it is not explicitly stated who did it in the books. One character claims the credit for it but it is not proven.

    Bumped for people in the book thread moaning about it being full of TV talk.

    You would probably get banned for that.

    I posted a lie saying a certain person killed Sandor. That came after I was accused of a major spoiler by many people for suggesting that him leaving King's Landing might not be the same as leaving the show entirely. (Currently worried his demise might come true).
