    That will be sweet, but the body count from this season will be epic. As will be the outraged screams of fans following some of those deaths...

    I don't think "a lot of people are going to die" is much of a spoiler for this series.

    I found myself liking emelia clarke's character the best (and overall story).

    lol that part is not
    but if I hadn't read the books, I probably wouldn't want to know that there are characters that die that will lead to fan outrage like with Ned

    You should probably spoiler this. I'm looking forward to
    Drogon going ape shit in the fighting pits.

    If you had read the books you'd, more likely than not, be in a different spot.

    Definitely, that's going to be epic. Probably be in the next season if I had to guess.

    G is going to need to get writing as the series is catching up quickly with the books.

    Well Storm of Swords is going to be split into two seasons, so they've got material until at least 2016, and could probably stretch it out at least another year if they needed to.

    Don't read this unless you really want to.
    Hope they exaggerate the lezzie thing with Dani

    This is HBO. It will probably get its own episode.

    I'd wager that the show will overtake the books right around when the next book comes out. When that happens, I am almost certain that the show will continue on to the end of the story without the final book. GRRM has apparently already told the producers what happens, and certainly by that point, he'd know pretty well where it was going. They can't pause the story without having to recast, and who is to say that they'd even be able to get the funding together again three or four years later.

    I've heard that this season goes through about 60% of the ASoS. The next season will almost certainly start getting into AFfC and ADwD--I'd imagine they will present those storylines interwoven and chronologically rather than splitting by character as the books do. Figure another season as well for AFfC and ADwD. This means that the first season for new material would be 2017, which I think (hope?) is doable for GRRM--it would mean TWoW would need to come out in 2016, which seems reasonable.

    Some things are going to get strange with the casting because of the ages of some of the characters.
    Maisie Williams will be 20 by 2017, where book Arya is supposed to be around 12 at the end of ADWD
