Even if the rest of these books are terrible I will still read them just to see Arya to come back to Westeros and leave a trail of bodies across the map.

Have I told you that I think Arya will be the Valonqar and will kill Cersei. These prophecies are not literal. Maester Aemon explained that Valeryan is gender neutral. So, "Little Brother" really means "Little Sibling." Jon Snow calls Arya "Little Sis." Cersei will be strangled to death by the Valonqar. Arya has already been taught how to use the Strangler poison to kill and has used it effectively. It will be a nice way to off someone on her hit list.

Arya's my favorite too. In season 1 they did her justice, but because she's neither sexy nor in KL they've given her short shrift on the show. I hope her travels with Sandor are featured because they are so good. I can't believe they killed off the Tickler already. So bad of a revision.

The others in my personal top 5: Ser Barristan, Sandor, Tyrion, and Wyman Manderley. Brienne is a close 6th and she's growing on my list b/c of the show. Great portrayal. Jon Snow was through the first 3 books, but in ADwD I really began to dislike him and Manderly became so damn good. I hope they don't cut him out. So critical to so many storylines for Davos, the Boltons, Rickon, Stannis, etc. And, I hope they find an actor fat enough to play him. Having a Hollywood pretty actor will just not work. He needs to be serious obese. The fact that Magister Illyrio is about 200 pounds is sad.

Jaime is one of my favorite characters. Such a great character arch.

The tickler thing makes total sense. If they waited until next season to kill him off, no one would even remember who he was, and the emotional satisfaction of his death would be totally lost.

Very plausible. I'm pretty sure Arya is going to show back up without anyone knowing she is there, and bad people are going to start mysteriously dropping like flies before she "reveals" herself--if she ever does.

The only problem with cutting out the iron islands is we don't know wtf they are doing. A lot of the content could be dropped, but the characters need to stay.

IIRC, they are sailing to a place where nobody has been in centuries and GRRM wouldn't write about it if they weren't going to find something.

This is a very fair point. GRRM has told the producers what is going to happen, so they presumably wouldn't cut something that's going to be important--or theyd jigger it around to move it to someone/where else.

Asha's sex scenes in the book were pretty hot. That was a woman that knew what she wanted.

That's why they have to have the Kingsmoot. Euron returns after sailing to Old Valaryia and Ashai beyond the Shadow and picking up some slaves and Warlocks plus he has to have the Dragonbinding horn. Victarion and Asha (whatever BS name they gave her) have to lose the moot. Then Vic has to sail to Dany with the horn, but that's more ADwD. The two important Greyjoys have been introduced and the rest of the stuff on the Iron Islands are ignored including the priest brother. That's two episodes with about 5-10 minutes each. Pretty small.

Then, Vic can pick up Black Flame Moqorro and we add another Red Priest to the mix before they join the Mereenese Knot, but that's much later on. Because they've cut out much of the Tyrells, Euron attacking the Shield islands and sailing up the Mander probably doesn't even matter much. Unless he reaches Sam in Old Twone. Then, maybe there's something that needs to happen. But, Euron killing the other Tyrell sons won't matter (as I expect will happen) given that they've already been killed by the producers.

Arienne's were better. And, they made Asha pudgy rather than lean and athletic.

Sam the Slayer left the dragonglass blade behind.

Great episode. Really enjoyed the Sandor-Arya banter. Great wedding. Only thing missing was a fat pink mast.

I agree on the Sandor-Arya opening. Probably some of the best humor in the series so far. And I made an audible groan when Samwell left that blade behind. ffffuuuu.gif
