It seems he'll get Winds of Winter to the publisher after the next season is complete - it may be published by Christmas 2016. Unless they keep the show going until 2022, there's no chance the last book will precede the final season of the show.
My predictions for final two episodes - includes book spoilers and extrapolation: [[SPOILER]]
They started making the characters play to type at the beginning of season 2 when they switched Robb and Cat's lines. In the book she said she needed to be with him to give him counsel about the war. Robb said that she should be home to take care of Bran and Rickon. It added to her regret when she learned that Bran and Rickon were "killed." Yet, on the show they made Cat play to type and say - I must go home to Bran and Rickon, they need their mother. And, Robb said,...
Why introduce the prominent Merman pin on the one fat bearded guy at the Red Wedding if Wyman Manderley wasn't going to show up at the Bolton/Stark wedding. I mean, you've got the new Warden of the North's son marrying the daughter of the hereditary Warden and sister of the late King in the North and there are no Freys (other than Fat Walda) much less any Northern Lords.
That oxblood color looks great.
Many great houses had Valaryan steel blades, but many other Houses did/do too (there's on in the Vale owned by a Lord who likes young boys and Mace Tarly (Samwell's father has one as well). Most were lost or destroyed overtime. The ability to make them was lost when magic left the world. Tywin could only have Ice remade because magic has returned - related to the birth of the dragons.Great Houses/Kingdoms:Targaryen - Dragonstone and Crownlands (not a Kingdom of its...
To paraphrase Sandor Clegane - Bugger on your Ser. I'm no knight. I like dogs better than knights.
My experience is 4-5 days. But, frequently 2 of those days are label created, awaiting pickup.
Wights can't be killed with dragon glass. They are frozen meat and the dragon glass breaks against their flesh and bone. Fire is the most effective. because they are undead it's somewhat unclear what happens when you hack them to pieces. They seem to continue to fight short of limbs. I can't recall whether we've seen a headless body continue to attack. Conventional weapons work. You do not need Valaryan steel.
White Walker are the creatures who lead the dead. They are some unknown race and live in the land always winter. Little and less is known about them, other than dragon glass and Valaryan Steel (dragon steel) can kill them. They convert the dead into undead and make them their minions. The wights are the zombie like undead who have been converted by the White Walkers. Wights can be killed by fire. Presumably, White Walkers can too, but it's unconfirmed.
