I might be becoming a little less spoiler-phobic, knowing more deviations are forthcoming, and certain things are going to go the other way around - the show will start spoiling unpublished books... anyway, I read this. Sounds like both a reasonable theory and explanation for a book omission...

Veee-rry interesting.

I wonder what the bookwalkers think.

HA!

Benioff and Weiss know best, but I still think 8 seasons/80 episodes shouldn't be much of a stretch. I think it'd be fun if it were the first HBO drama to have eight seasons.

The split-season-to-avoid-paying-the-actors-and-crew-more thing is a dirty trick.

I have no doubt that there will be another HBO Westeros-set (whether it be prequel or sequel) series at some point in the future. Benioff and Weiss likely won't be heavily involved (they're exhausted and will be all set to move on), but I'm sure HBO won't easily let this cash cow go... and it's a big world with plenty of stories they could tell...

KMI, do you think it's 'safe' for me to start reading the books now? I don't want to be spoiled but I'm thinking the TV show has veered off from the books enough for me to be OK. Thoughts?

Definitely safe to read 1-3 now.
4 & 5 are what the show's doing next, plus 'beyond'.
I love that the show's going to start 'spoiling' the book readers... It's just funny.

Yes. read the books. I can't decide what it will mean for canon, because most of my bookwalker friends are now in a sort of hate-fugue with GRRM and have resigned themselves to the show spoiling the books. :P

This hasn't happened before. I mean, things like Dexter or Sookie Stackhouse diverged so much after the first book or season that they stopped being very comparable... GoT and ASOIAF are 'close', but...

Of course, even if B&W are, you know, BASICALLY finishing GRRM's story... GRRM certainly isn't going to feel bound to any of their stuff as he finishes his books... Seasons 6 & 7 (and 8?) are going to be a lot more different from Books 6-7 than 1-4 show/1-3 book were...

OK I'm going to start the books soon. I think it's funny the TV show will spoil the books. Oh well. I'm not worried about that.

My BFF bookwalker loves the show, and loves the books too. She's convinced GRRM will lie about the upcoming events so the books WILL be different than the show - on purpose. Another friend followed up with the idea that HBO will be HAPPY if the books diverge a lot after the show ends, because then a few years from now they can do GoT, the Book End. LOLOL

I don't think 'calculated lie' so much as 'will change his mind a lot when he gets there'... But yeah, they're sure to be plenty different. Which is okay.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before he started teasing things happening in the books that won't happen on the show.

I'm very excited for tonight. I must take the time to go through this thread and see all the fun stuff recently posted.

I'm still on Book 1 and I can tell you without a doubt that I will continue reading until I'm done. I don't care if book/TV show ruins the other because I'm enjoying both.

I do find it interesting that the TV show will not follow the books precisely this season. I wonder if my brain will start to fry trying to figure out what is what. Either way I'm ready for a parallel universe ... book vs. HBO.
