I hated book 4, so looking forward to how they handle that. My guess it will more enjoyable watching book 4 than reading it. They'll "HBO" it up a bit.

More boobies!
I hope the plan is still to do two seasons (20eps) for book 3. It's easily the best book, and had so much happen it would be a travesty to try doing it in only 10 eps.

I don't know the episode count, but they are supposedly splitting up the 3rd season

I hope its more like season 3A and 3B with a short break in between the two. I remember Entourage doing that at least once.

I wonder what they might use as the split up point to create a big "WTF" end of season moment...

It will involve food, I'm sure. Just spitballing here, of course.

If I HAD to guess, I'd say they go with when Cersei ****s the Hound so he'll stay to protect Joffrey but more likely they'll use Melisandre killing Stannis.

Another good breaking point would be when Jon becomes the leader of the white walkers and randomly declares war on Pentos.

It will be red I am sure. But.....SPOILERS:...I doubt they use the part where John becomes the WW leader. I think more and more it would be pertinent to where Khaleesi does the nasty with her dragon- although I am not sure they will show it, but they did show other nudity so you never know- and see the birth of the human dragon thing (drakgano)-.......SPOILER END)- I think part is a little more pivital and would leave people hanging on their seats for the second half.

Use f'n spoiler tags people. That's what they're there for. (No, not for me. Just being considerate; amazing concept.)

Is it really that big of a spoiler to learn that Tyrion trains Nymeria and rides her into battles against the Dornish?

That's a ...natural cut off point for the story in the Seven kingdoms, but what about at the wall and in the east?

SPOILER: (
Also, where does Joffrey's assassination fit in? Think they'll change the timeline a bit and push it back to the "climax" of the second part of the season?

Huge spoiler

SPOILER: ( Joffrey's death would work to front the gap, more as a cathartic moment than a wtf one... then completely shake people up with the RW early in the fourth season. I would be happy with that. Danny aquiring the unsullied and meeting Selmy in S3, the rest in four. Sam and the NW rout at the FotFM + some John and Yrgritte's journey to the wall in S3, the rest in 4, oh wait...Bran has to meet the Reed's and Journey north, the Bastard of Bolton, not to mention Jaime Lannister and the BC, ****...I hope they can do it justice. )

Btw, trolls are trolling on this page.

Real spoiler below, do not read unless read book 3...



SPOILER -If they do it with Joff though then they would have a lot to fill in afterwards, the hearing for tryion and getting the viper to fight the mountain and such. I just think that would be to premature to end it with that. I could see it happening mid way through the season and then leaving it hanging where sansa is on the run....I forgot my timelines a bit here too, but when tyrion used his cross bow, was that near the end of 3 or middle? I was thinking it was middle and that would seem to be a more likely cause for the wtf? Joff is dead midway through, then at the break tryion offs his dad and then splits. Who knows. Spoiler end.....

Man I cant wait, but I love the idea, however unlikley that they would do season 3, which ends about his time of the year, and then finish season it up sometime in the fall. It wont happen but it would be great.

Oberyn poisoned Tywin and he was going to die whether Tyrion shot him or not

"Where will I find my lord father?”
“In the solar with Lord Tyrell and Prince Oberyn.”

“Widow’s blood, this one is called, for the color. A cruel potion. It shuts down a man’s bladder and bowels, until he drowns in his own poisons.”

“Your father,” said Prince Oberyn, “may not live forever.”

The King’s Hand was rotting visibly. His face had taken on a greenish tinge, and his eyes were deeply sunken, two black pits. Fissures had opened in his cheeks, and a foul white fluid was seeping through the joints of his splendid gold-and-crimson armor to pool beneath his body.

...and of course the smell.
)
This blew my mind and answers a few questions that I had. This book is so well thought out and written, it's amazing to me. Just when you think there is a plot hole, or something doesn't make sense, you find something hidden (in plain sight) that explains it.

Yup. Even seeing that Oberyn would even go near Mace Tyrell shows that something was up.

Btw, Oberyn's the best character in the series by a large margin.

It's an interesting commentary (to me) that House Stark, by all accounts the only truly good family in all of Westeros, was allied with the Boltons and the Freys when they are capable of such treachery.

Oberyn is badass, but I think my favorite character is Jamie Lannister - I love the complexity of him and how on the surface he looks like one thing, but underneath all the armor and bravado he's such a complex, but yet simple creature.

Too bad we weren't lucky enough to have gotten some Oberyn POV chapters. Biggest mistake GRRM ever made not doing that.

Possible we could still get something resembling that....
