Probably because Martin needs time to write his last books.

Actually I read an interview with the show's writers/producers where they explained that Martin has gone over with them the entire length of the story and all the major events leading up to the ending. They've teased that they know how the story ends, and so the show will work its way towards that ending with or without the final books.

Horrible episode. This show just keeps getting worse and worse.
Peter Dinklage is the worst actor in the world!
The story is so boring and bland.

This episode was quite different from the books.

That hasn't really happened before.

I don't know what to think.

My post was a lie.
I just wanted to see if people still watched the show and read this thread.

It wasn't highly memorable, but I didn't dislike it.

I did hear the same complaint from peeps who read the book, who I watched the show with. Well, not so much complaints but just comments that it differed from the book.

One of them justified it that the writer of the book told them to do it, as a hindsight correction to his own story. Sort of like how the young characters are scaled up in age; he said if he could re-write it for the book, he'd make them all the age they are in the show.

Heh, that's interesting - my wife and I were just talking a few days ago about how in the books it seemed like he didn't really understand how people that young actually acted or thought. The characters in the books always felt several years older than he said they were.

I'm not too bothered about it being different from the books, I'm sure it will be interesting regardless.

Since I haven't read the books; what exactly was different?

Just the timing of events, or specific events? Just throw up some spoiler tags.

Little bit of all of that.


Bran and Rickon are supposed to be hiding in the tomb below the castle. They don't escape until much later.

Jon doesn't meet the wildling girl until much later, after "joining" the wildlings. She doesn't know he is from night's watch.

The dragons don't get stolen.

Arya doesn't get almost found out, and doesn't have that guy kill the person he did.

The changes are totally not big at all and are completely blown out of proportion by die-hard fans who have been living with this story for over a decade. The truth is, there's a ton of fat being trimmed from the books, and rightfully so. Some events that happen a bit later are happening a bit sooner, and vice versa. Changes like the dragons being stolen really don't impact the story at all, it just creates a bit of extra drama for TV, and lets be honest here Dany's story in the second book is boring as hell, she barely does anything, and literally has only 5 chapters in the entire book. They're making her story a bit more interesting, thank god

This was a masterful episode. Completely awesome, with surprises even for a book reader like myself. I thought it was easily one of the best of the entire series so far and the mention of the Bastard of Bolton chills my fucking blood and excites me greatly for what is to come.

Just so you know I wasn't complaining at all, I don't really care what they do as long as it's interesting. I can't wait for the book 3 Dany stuff to happen. (I think that's in book 3...maybe in the end of book 2).

The one thing that is kind of significant is that the Wildling girl knows who Snow is. That was pretty suspenseful in the book - you really feel sorry for the girl and wonder how Jon is going to deal with telling her.

Sorry didn't mean to make it sound like it was you complaining, I meant fans in general, like I see them all over the internet, plaguing every forum, making it completely insufferable to have any kind of decent conversation about the show.

About your spoiler: it's been a long time since I read this book, but the way it happened in the show, is pretty much how I remembered it happening. I guess I'm probably wrong, but I totally thought it was legit. Didn't she call him a crow every now and then? All the dudes in the wildling camps hated him because they knew he was a crow, they all taunted him and she'd stand up for him, from what I recall. Also when they fuck for the first time, she was all like "is this how boys do it down south?" or something. The way I remember it, she falls in love with a guy who has converted from being a man of the night's watch, proving himself by killing Qorin, and she genuinely believed he wanted to live as a wildling.

Hmm, yeah, I think you're right. It's been so long since I read that book I can barely remember what happens.

I just knew watching the last episode that something felt off, but I wasn't 100% what it was.

Didn't she call it a kingly kiss or royal kiss or something?
