We do. Widely posted on towerofthehand.com and HBO. Widely discussed in interviews with production. GRRM has mentioned it also, as I think that's the episode he's writing.
There's a couple theories about Jon
1 - Later parts of DwD, it seems like Mel is less confident about Stannis being Azor Ahai, and she thinks it might be Jon. Mel is probably the strongest magic-user in the series and she's even more powerful at the wall, so she could possibly give him the "kiss of life" (like Thoros/Beric and Beric/Catelyn).
2 - Jon warged into Ghost prior to dying.
In either case, Jon "dying" released him from his vows to the Watch. ("Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death")
The R+L = J theory is very good and imo there's quite a bit of evidence for it. Check it out.
A lot of people think this could be part of the "Three Headed Dragon" thing: Dany, Jon, and Aegon.
A fansite for George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's Game of Thrones, featuring chapter and episode guides, character profiles, family trees, maps, essays, and more.
No good reason, but this is one of my favorite scenes from the TV series so far. Really captures King Robert.
King Robert, Ser Barristan Selmy and Ser Jaime Lannister sharing war stories. One of my favorite scenes in the show.
I DO NOT own Game of Thrones. All rights to this clip belong to HBO.
Big time change imo. I'm a self-confessed book purist, but I understand the need for changes in the series. This seems like a big one. Maybe too big.
Hope they have two weddings. Surely there is enough air-time for two - one small and understated (Tyrions) and one rediculously large (Joffreys).
Just finished the series on audio. I picked it up on audio for a daily hour long commute, and have been chipping away at it while in the car. That being said, I did pick it up late January last year, so it took me 15 months to get through it. I'm not looking forward to aWOT which is my next project because of the length.
As for ASOIAF - I'm in love. I can't wait to read through these 27 pages (after I read the theories on the ASOIAF wiki)
If anyone is reading this who HASN'T read the series, pick it up on audio. The same guy does all the voices, and its a really enjoyable - if long - way to take it.
Wow, I just saw this now that thread was bumped. That's very interesting stuff. Didn't realize so many people had the same thought. Now that the theory is so prevalent, I wonder if the writing will go in some other direction. Sometimes writers do that when the masses have figured out their end game. See TV show Lost for example.
Some of the things will be true, others not. R+L = J has a lot of evidence going for it, however, so if it went some other way it would be almost poor writing, a shock for the sake of a shock.
Sounds about right. I just need MOAR now. Sick of waiting already.
If The Winds of Winter doesn't come out till 2016, that would be crazy. A Dance with Dragons was quite good, but really didn't advance the story a whole lot. It also left so many loose ends to make the readers wait so long for resolution. Hell, what would they do if the TV show get caught up before the books come out?
Probably a Dunk and Egg prequel.
How much of Winds of Winter is finished?
Last I heard 200-300 pages. Might be up to 400 by now. I think it's est. at 800-900 though.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Yeah because a lot of it was pushed over from DWD.
Dude is wasting too much time both betting and blogging on pro football
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
Especially as a Jets fan... he's probably going to kill off Bran just to spite the world for the Jets taking Geno.
Ser Williyam of Camp Bell is going to die a horribly slow death at the hands of Robert Strong.
RW bump for tonight's show.
GRRM has said on numerous occasions that he's not going to change the story if people guess right before hand. IMO, the R+L=J theory is my favorite of the series.
East Lansing- A Drinking Town with a Football Problem
I personally enjoy the Varys = merman theory
How can you forget the best theory of all? Benjen = Daario
Only when he's not warging into shae.
FIRE NARDUZZI- tanfan
So Daario = Coldhands?
I'm still intrigued to find out who Coldhands is. Obviously can't be Benjen or Bloodraven.
That was my guess, but I thought they completely destroyed him. Since he was banging a White Walker they probably should have also had the foresight to burn him, although maybe not.
Solid. Makes you wonder if that affects the books since robs wife / child died in the show.
Though it was Jamie lanister sends his regards.
Blackfish snuck out, I think he stayed in riverrun in the book.
