The who part of talking about how his great sacrifice was not killing his deformed son whose birth had resulted in the death of his beloved wife. I even think it worked and that Tyrion was going to try to bed sansa until he saw her crying.

Also whats up with Yara only taking 50 dudes to rescue Theon? Are they the Ironborn version of seal team six?
They say one iron born is worth 20 westeros men but they seem like a faction that talks a lot of shit and can't back it up.

All the same she took the fastest ship and only 50 men so she's hopefully planning somekind of special ops mission and not a siege of the warden of the north's home base with only 50 men.

One ironborn is worth a dozen men... dozen = 12.

Tywin was going to tell Sansa about her brother and mother's death, and most likely be gentle about it, but somebody beat him to the punch. Probably that c*nt Joffrey.

He supposedly will be able to help Westeros defeat the White Walkers. There are a ton of things that we haven't discovered yet about Bran, his storyline really gets interesting once he passes the Wall.

The boy with Bran said: "The Night's Watch and all its men cannot stop them. All the Kings of Westeros and their armies can't stop them"

Bran is really important to the overall story.

I agree. I expect to see that character early on in S4. As well as a ton of other major events early on in S4. Gonna be a long wait.

I think you are right. The other boy did say nobody can do - when referring to Hodor's possession. On the same token, I'm thinking Bran could control wild fire as well. And that has obvious other implications for war. I don't see controlling individual people and animals as being that important. Unless he is near a King? Maybe.

Well if Tywin had Bran's powers he would definitely have him humping Sansa. Tywin is a bit obsessed with three things: The Lannister name, telling Tyrion he killed his mother, and having Tyrion continue the family name. The weirdo Tywin, actually likes several attributes of Tyrion - and believes his name can survive thru Tyrion's propensity to discipline, take on responsibility, ability to strategize, think on his feet, and interpersonal skills. I think you are right about the guilt thing as a ploy to get Tyrion on project Tywin, but there is some real genuine hate in the constant retelling of it and putting Tyrion's life in danger.

Ironman was born in Ironborn. Captain Westeros inspired Marvel Comic books later on as well. Submariner was obviously born on some small island. Antman was seen hanging with the Wildings, Thor obviously comes from this era.

Arya encounter with Ghost of High Heart isn't even in the show...
I like the show but books are so much deeper, almost everything indicates of some possible future event.
Bottom line, everyone should start from the beginning.


I know I am missing out but I have caught up on summaries with everything that happens in the first 2 books and doesnt show in GoT.

Still, started reading to where season 3 left off and I cant take my eyes of the third book. It is great and I am glad I started reading it. Considering how much I love this I will be through with the fifth book in less than 2 months.

I just could not wait for another year for season 4. And the more I read, the more I realize half of the fourth season must be from the third book. It is impossible for the to squeeze all the events of the second part of the third book into a few episodes.

Hopefully they play up his character as much as the 4th and 5th books do.
