    rofl Jesus, the uproar over that rape scene would have probably increased tenfold had they kept that.

    Zzonked wrote:It's not just the Sansa bit, this season has totally deviated from the book in literally every storyline. The Sansa bit isn't the worst at all, at least that makes some sense for the characters. I'm not sure these are really spoilers but I'll put them in a tag anyway if you're really anal about that sort of thing.

    Spoiler:
    Everything about the Sand Snakes scene in the last episode was horrible. The fighting was awful:

    And the storyline itself was clunky and stupid. In the book Bron is chilling at home with his wife and Jaime is in the riverlands doing some diplomacy. Why on Earth would he go on a super secret fighting mission when he's only got his left hand and can barely fight? The sand snakes wore masks then immediately took them off when they saw people, wtf? They also wore stuff that would distinguish them anyway. 

    Brienne is still looking for Sansa and Arya, she doesn't meet either of them yet. The Arya meeting was okay but the Sansa one wasn't great.

    Tyrion meets a female dwarf and has a little love interest. Seriously. I don't mind that this is gone from the series as it's kind of stupid anyway. Jorah isn't the one with greyscale in the book, I don't mind that either. They don't sail through Valyeria as no one who goes through there comes back alive in the books. They meet the grey men, but they are somewhere else. They are also with a bigger group of people who have a whole big storyline, but I wont go into that because potential spoilers if they do bring that stuff in eventually.

    Ser Barristan is still alive and well in the books. Grey worm is not in a stupid relationship with Missandei who is like 11 in the books anyway.

    There's probably more but I need to go out now so I'm gonna stop here.

    Now I know why loads of people are complaining about this season, I thought it was because of a lack of drama or whatever but I guess it's because it's strayed quite a way from the books. I think I'll have to read these books one day, most likely after the TV show itself ends.

    That episode, holy fuck. Saw the ending coming thanks to some arsehole on Facebook posting about it first thing this morning, but the bit in the north and the earlier part with Arya, fuck me.

    Best episode of the season by a mile. Without spoiling anything, I have a feeling the next episode has a big surprise in store for everyone.

    I'm pretty sure I've been spoiled for that surprise. Am I right in thinking we're pretty much at the end of the books as they've been published now?

    In most places yes. Dany's storyline is basically there, Stannis is near, Cersei is near, Tyrion and Jorah are ahead of the books too. Arya is a little bit behind, although I suppose they might just cut out parts of her training. 

    On the other hand, the Greyjoys are about 3 books behind. I have a feeling they won't bother with them in the TV series though which is a shame.

    All of this time, all he wanted to do was hold the door.
