I am going to assume the limit of his power is that the more intelligent a life form is the harder it is to control them. Animals are easy, anyone with the power can do it. Hodor is too smart to control for people with average warg power, but someone as talented as bran can do it.
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.
Edit: was I the only one that got the impression that Tywin was trying to guilt Tyrion into impregnating Sansa by any means necessary? 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.
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.
Also whats up with Yara only taking 50 dudes to rescue Theon? Are they the Ironborn version of seal team six?
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.
You'll be missing out too much imo.
I started from AGoT after finishing season 2 and my opinion is that everyone should start from the beginning. Some events in the books imply so much future events, like Dany in the House of the Undying, she has like 20 different visions there, some of them already came through, some not yet and some are still just theories. 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.
one thing from the book i would have liked to see is high lighted in white. not really a spoiler but i didn't want to upset anybody here.
We already had a Hodor nude scene.
It felt like they just teased it to move Sam's story along. I can't imagine it'd be ommitted. There's too much speculation surrounding it. It would be much worse than what they did killing Talisa, because that moment pretty much ended any speculation one could have about Jeyne Westerling and her unborn heir meaning much big picture wise moving forward in the books.
If they omit him, then I suppose he couldn't turn out to be much in the books. He would be a much bigger ommision than say Strong Belwas, or the Hearth Witch lady, to me anyway.
Co-showrunner David Benioff discusses in general terms how he and partner D.B. Weiss will approach the fourth book, A Feast of Crows, which features a largely new cast of characters and is generally considered the weakest entry:
"I don't think we want to answer specifically what we're keeping and dropping, but we do take your point. The series has already reached a point where there are so many characters, particularly in season three we're introducing so many new ones, we run the risk of bursting at the seams as we try to cram every single subplot and all the various characters and it becomes impossible on a budgetary level and it becomes impossible on an episode-basis to jump around every few minutes to 30 different characters and locations. We don't want to do that, and recognize that as a real risk and we will take steps not to fall into that trap."
And author George R.R. Martin says he's still optimistic the TV series won't reach the end of the story before he does:
"I think the odds against that happening are very long. I still have a lead of several gigantic books. If they include everything in the books, I don't think they're going to catch up with me. If they do, we'll have some interesting discussions."
