New Game of Thrones trailer. Looks like a huge deviation from the books from this point forward. Sansa and the Knights of the Vale in Winterfell, Brienne in the North.

I wonder if Sansa will give Brienne the `quest` Lady Stoneheart offered.

bleh, at this point its almost like two different stories completely. On top of that each story is so intricate with so many characters to keep track of that I haven't even bothered to fully catch up on the tv side of things because I've been all caught up on the books for quite some time now.

Ugh, **** you Stannis!

Mance is like a version of William Wallace.

Anyway, good first episode. Now time to analyze, overanalyze, get pissed at each other, etc.

I was thinking the same exact thing when Mance met his fate. Braveheart is the greatest movie ever made imo..

I don't remember any of this from the book. Isn't Mance still alive and in jail?

And Tormund was making me mad. Mance just needed confirmation from someone that it was ok to kneel.

BTW, I'm also tired of Stannis. I hope this jackass kills himself because he gets trapped in a scenario where it's the obvious and correct thing to do. I like him way more in the books.

When my wife said, "I like that actor" I knew Mance was a dead man. Martin still loves to kill off the selfless characters.

We cancelled HBO last year and I never did get to see the last couple of episodes, so I doubt that I'll be following any more of it until we buy the DVD set or it comes to Netflix.

Maybe by then, Martin will have WoW finished.

Or have died, so someone else can do it.

Please not that. I'm a big fantasy nut who reads a lot, so I was big into Wheel of Time, a similar massive fantasy series, and when Sanderson finished up for Robert Jordan after he died, he completely botched my favorite character, Mat. He finished the books ok, but Jordan dying was horrific for the series.

Lulz this show is LOTR meets Harry potter meets walking dead. Plus they borrowed 1/3 of the cast from Rome so these guys are hbo pros. Rome > GOT and it's not close.

Jon Stark, King of the North, avenging his family. How do you turn that down?

I mean, ****, take care of business and then use that newfound power to fortify the wall afterward.

rome was good, but its not GoT. 2 characters from rome does not make 1/3 of the cast on GoT.

The ending on Rome was kinda crappy. Really, the only son of cleopatra was fathered by a goof soldier?

It is. When I watch that movie I still get goosebumps when he yells freedom!

I know rule 1 of GOT is to not get attached to a character, but I was still hoping that mance would find a way to escape even though I knew he wouldn't.

I'd say Jordan did a good job himself screwing up the series. I read the first 8 or 9 books when I was like 14 and quit because they became unbearable. Then at like 25 I thought I'd give it a go again. Same result. The first few are great and then they slowly devolve into a mess. By book 8 or 9, can't remember which, I just couldn't do it anymore.

(guess ill make sure to post it spoiler eventhough this is a spoiler thread.)

That was not Mance that died. It was Rattleshirt who was made to look like Mance by Melisandre.

I don't think that will be the case in the show. Rattleshirt would not have given that speech. In yhe book his mouth was bound. It could be Tormund but I'm thinking it was probably just Mance.

For those who don't know, the show and books will end at the same place, but the show will end before the books. So, the show will spoil the books, instead of vice versa. Turnabout, it seems, is fair play!

Heres a article that's says he could be dead or alive. I could see them killing him. Too bad I thought that was a positive for Melisandres character

http://www.wetpaint.com/game-of-thro...er-really-dead



If you're a Mance fan, there's good news: In the books, he survives!

See, it turns out Melisandre (Carice van Houten) actually saved Mance, using a spell to switch his appearance with that of another Wildling. Mance ends up being sent down to Winterfell to help fight the Boltons, which he does using subterfuge.

So, will things play out this way on the show? At this point, we have no idea. Sadly for Mance, this does seem like the kind of plotline that could be scrapped as too complex for the show — and we wouldn't be shocked if the writers decide to re-work a big chunk of the Boltons-at-Winterfell plot to make it more compelling for TV.

So, there is some hope, Mance fans, but we wouldn't put money on the King Beyond the Wall making a reappearance just yet.

The first four were good. It bogged down a bit after that until Faith of the Fallen. That was the best book in the series. And it picked up again towards the end. It ended well. I just hated how Sanderson couldn't write Mat's character.

The Mat storyline was very disappointing wasn't it. I figured they would spin him off for reconquering the Seanchan Empire post the end of the books.
